While Snap-On Smiles may seem like a great option, they are not for everyone. These removable teeth can be vulnerable to dental plaque, which increases the risk of tooth decay. Because the teeth are not connected to each other, saliva can’t wash away the bacteria, resulting in increased risk of decay. People with severe crooked teeth should avoid Snap-On Smiles. Instead, they should consider dental restorations or clear aligners.
A real Snap-On Smile is custom-made in a dental lab, but it requires the assistance of a dentist. Unfortunately, there are many imitation products on the market. Some of them require impressions to be made at home, and others are only available online. Those options are often less expensive and less durable. The costs of these alternative options are similar to those of a Snap-On Smile, but the quality may not be as good.
Another advantage of Snap-On Smiles is that the results are immediate. The process is simple. Patients will only need two appointments to have the appliance fitted, which can last up to three weeks. In addition, there is no recovery time, and the entire procedure takes just a few weeks. This means that people with a busy schedule can use the Snap-On Smile appliance on a limited basis.
Although Snap-On Smiles are a great option for people who want to fix their teeth, they’re not a permanent solution. Although they can protect your teeth from further damage, they won’t straighten or fix your teeth. You’ll still have to remove the device while sleeping to brush and floss your teeth. In addition, they require special cleaning solutions, and commercial toothpaste can damage them.
