When you don’t love your smile, it can affect your life in a number
of ways. You may feel less confident in your professional life, and you
may shy away from personal relationships because you’re embarrassed
to show your teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry treatments can correct the flaws that bother you, but it is not always practical
for someone to devote the time and money to a full smile makeover. Fortunately,
if you need a quick fix for your smile, your dentist can help with a Snap-On
Smile®. This fast and affordable cosmetic dentistry treatment gives
you an option to enjoy a better smile until the time is right for more
extensive dental services. Here is what you need to know.
What is the Snap-On Smile®?
The Snap-On Smile® is a temporary set of teeth that snap snuggly over
your existing teeth. It looks like your natural teeth but obscures a wide
range of aesthetic complaints, including misshapen teeth, missing teeth,
discoloration, and spacing issues. Your new smile is designed specifically
to fit your mouth, and you can have your new set of teeth in as little
as two weeks.
What is the process?
If you and your dentist decide that a Snap-On Smile® is right for
you, then you will browse different shape and shade options for your new
smile. Your dentist will make impressions of existing teeth and snap photos
of your smile. Within about two weeks, your customized Snap-On Smile®
will be ready to wear.
What are the advantages?
A Snap-On Smile® is fast, painless, and less expensive that other
smile makeover treatments. It is the perfect stopgap measure to give you
a new smile for a special event or until you are ready for full cosmetic
dentistry procedures. With the right care, your Snap-On Smile® can
last for three to five years, while you decide which cosmetic dentistry
procedures are right for you.
