People long for a beautiful smile, but not many are fortunate enough to be born with one. Usually, some cosmetic dentistry is needed to acquire the smile of your dreams. For some, a little whitening is all that is needed. For others, surgical procedures may be needed. If you don’t have dental insurance, these procedures can get expensive quickly. But, there may be an alternative that can help you get the smile that you have been longing for- at least temporarily.
This affordable solution to cosmetic surgery is called Snap-On Smile. Snap-On Smile is a non-invasive, simple, and temporary way to quickly give you the smile that you strive to have. For those that may be afraid of permanent procedures, this is also a great solution as there is no pain, drilling, or shots involved!
High quality dental resin is used to create Snap-On Smile, and it fits right on top of your own teeth. It looks completely natural because it is so thin, and those that use it have no trouble eating, drinking, and socializing while wearing it. A dental professional will be able to assist in choosing the right options for you- as there are many variations available. Different shading options help to ensure that they will look completely natural.
After you choose the coloring and style, the dental professional will create an impression of your teeth. The impression is then used to make a custom Snap-On Smile that will fit precisely over your own teeth. It usually takes around two weeks for the Snap-On Smile to be created after the measurements are sent to the laboratory for creation. When the Snap-On Smile arrives at the dental office, you will be asked to come back for a fitting and any adjustments will be addressed to make sure that they are comfortable and that they fit correctly. They really just snap into place, so you don’t have to worry about any gels or other maintenance products!
Typical candidates for Snap-On Smile have missing teeth, gaps, crooked teeth, or stained teeth. It is a great alternative for those that are not looking to get implants, bridges, or partial dentures. While Snap-On Smile is quick, one also has to remember that it is temporary. Surgical procedures are permanent, while Snap-On Smile is simply a short term solution to any imperfections that may be a nuisance.
Snap-On Smile slides right over your natural teeth and snaps into place, ensuring that the mould won’t move around in the mouth. Because it is so secure and thin, it looks completely natural and leaves you looking as if you have a perfect smile! They are comfortable to wear all day and remove to clean them when needed. It is important to clean them often, as food trapped under them can cause cavities and gum issues.
