SEATTLE — An innovative treatment, Same Day New Smile, helps dental patients who may have missing teeth or failed dentistry achieve a healthy, permanent smile.

Patient Gail Miller visited Dr. Keller at Smiles By Design after being frustrated with what options were available to her to transform her teeth.

“When I went into Dr. Keller’s office, I felt like I was being surrounded by people hugging me,” Gail said. “Dr. Keller had a vision for my smile that I couldn’t even imagine. I called the team the ‘dream team’ because they made my dreams come true.”

Dr. Keller created Same Day New Smile because he knew many people were having dental procedures done that would only last for five to ten years and would take many dental visits. His goal was to create a method where patients could have all of their dental work done in a short amount of time, and it would last long-term.

"Extreme technology," education from around the world and Dr. Keller's vision made this a reality with Same Day New Smile. Planning takes place before the procedure, including a facial 3D scan, so actual treatment time is reduced.

“We’ve got technology that most other people don’t have,” Dr. Keller said. “So, we can deliver a smile that we believe is going to last a lifetime in one to two days.”

Dr. Keller places four dental implants in the upper or lower jaw then places a bridge to mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. This Same Day New Smile procedure transforms the appearance of the smile in just one to two visits, and the implants can function as normal teeth.

“The transformation is amazing for me,” Dr. Keller said. “It’s very exciting to go into work every day.”

If you have a treatment plan with a great deal of dental work or are looking for an alternative to dentures, Dr. Keller recommends visiting Smiles By Design for a free consultation.

“I’m smiling from my heart because I’ve never had a smile like this,” Gail said.
