A Snap-On Smile is a non-invasive way to gain improved cosmetics over a short period of time. It is a removable dental appliance that is made of a crystallized acetyl-resin that is durable and stain resistant. The slightly flexible material allows the appliance to ‘snap’ over existing teeth without any alteration or drilling of existing teeth. The appliance does not impinge on the tissue and does not cover the roof of the mouth (palate). The Snap-On Smile provides an alternative for patients who are looking to improve their smile due to gaps, missing teeth, crowded teeth, stains, decay or even broken or worn down teeth.
Snap-On Smile Advantages
- Non-Invasive and reversible
- Cosmetic Improvement
- Light weight and comfortable
- Versatile uses
- Instantaneous results
- Provides a guideline for permanent restoration
- Does not fix dental problems permanently
- Limited life span
- Oral health danger (if not taken out and cleaned properly cause tooth decay and/or gum disease)
The versatility of the Snap-On Smile is what makes it a credible temporary restorative alternative. It can be utilized as an appliance to temporarily restore a smile during an implant case to providing a ‘Hollywood smile’ for a patient who doesn’t have time to fix his/her teeth prior to a class reunion or wedding. The most important aspect is to have a thorough consultation with your dentist to determine if a Snap-On Smile is right for you.
