Teeth-in-a-Day* All-on-Four™

The Most Advanced Full Mouth Construction Treatment

Teeth play an important role in how you eat, speak, and look. If you are missing all of your teeth (edentulous), you are familiar with the difficulty missing teeth can cause. The All-on-Four Teeth-in-a-Day procedure can completely restore your missing teeth. You will feel like you have all of your natural teeth again. In the procedure, a custom denture, crafted in our on-site lab, is secured to four implants that are inserted into the jawbone. Because the implants fuse to the jawbone, your prosthetic teeth will not slip like traditional dentures. Patients will be able to enjoy replacement teeth that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. 

Unlike traditional dentures, the All-On-4 also helps to preserve the jawbone. Without stimulation from teeth roots, the jawbone slowly deteriorates. The implants used in the All-On-4 procedure function as teeth roots in that they provide stimulation for the jawbone. The All-On-4 not only restores your smile but also preserves your jawbone and facial structure.

The All-On-4 procedure utilizes special surgical methodologies that reduce treatment time. Before surgery, diagnostic imaging is used to create a 3D model that allows the dentist to plan precisely where each dental implant will be placed into the jawbone. This allows the dentist to safely administer the treatment as well as avoid time-consuming bone grafting surgery.

Why Choose Uptown Houston Dental Implants?

Houston’s Top Prosthodontist

All-On-Four Dental Implants HoustonUptown Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry offers more value than any other cosmetic dentistry practice in Houston.  No other dental practice in the area boasts an on-site lab as well as an expert prosthodontist and a highly skilled general dentist.

By housing a lab on-site, Uptown is able to cut down costs for our patients as well as decrease treatment times. Many other dental practices have to order bridges, dentures, and other dental devices used in cosmetic procedures from an off-site lab. This results in a decrease in quality control and an increase in wait time. Since our lab is on-site, we are able to ensure that each dental apparatus is fabricated to the highest standards and will be a perfect fit for our patients in a timely manner.

If you are only having a single tooth replaced, it’s important that the crown matches the color of your natural teeth. We perform tests in natural light and in a custom shade room to ensure that our patients receive dental restorations that beautifully compliment their natural teeth. 

Our lab is fully staffed with experienced technicians who expertly craft veneers, dentures, bridges, and crowns that are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. The only difference is that these replacement teeth are not discolored, misshapen, chipped, decayed or aesthetically unappealing in any way. Our lab is also equipped to manufacture zirconia dental prosthetics. Zirconia is a durable material that looks exactly like natural teeth, but unlike natural teeth, it does not stain.

We are Experts in Cosmetic Dentistry & Dental Implants.

While it’s possible to get basic cosmetic procedures performed by a general dentist, you may not get the results you want. On the other hand, Dr. Velasco is a prosthodontist who specializes in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. 

Dr. Velasco was a general dentist for seven years before going on to study esthetic and implant dentistry. He continued his education further by entering into a prosthodontist program in Florida. After completing the program, Dr. Velasco taught courses on implant dentistry, dental bio-materials, and occlusion. He ran a cutting-edge dental practice in Austin for several years before establishing Uptown Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry in Houston, where he has now performed thousands of successful cosmetic dental procedures. 

When you choose Uptown, you are trusting the appearance of your smile and your oral health to dentists who have in-depth knowledge, specialized training, and extensive experience.

What is a Prosthodontist?

Prosthodontics is the area of dentistry that focuses on dental prostheses, artificial replacements used to restore intraoral defects such as missing teeth. There are less than 4,000 prosthodontists practicing in the United States compared to well over 100,000 general dentists. Prosthodontists are few and far between, and one of the best calls Uptown Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry home.

Prosthodontists must undergo three additional years of specialized training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate education program. This specialized training enables them to manage complex dental restorations ranging from single-tooth replacement to traumatic injury rehabilitation. 

If you are seeking a cosmetic or reconstructive dental procedure, it’s best to consult a prosthodontist who can ensure that you get the smile that you’ve always wanted. Dr. Velasco is the leading prosthodontist in Houston, TX. Reach out to us at Uptown Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry and let us know how we can help make you smile today.
