Next, The Houston Dentists discuss the benefits of Snap-On Smile®.
What Is It?
The Snap-On Smile is a removable appliance made of high-quality resin that simply slips on (or “snaps”) over your teeth. The appliance covers either the entire upper or lower arch. Whether your smile suffers from missing, crowded, stained, or unevenly spaced teeth, this affordable, simple solution might be for you.
Benefits of Snap-On Smile
- Attractive. The proprietary blend of high-tech resin used in Snap-On Smile is very thin, yet very strong.
- Quick. The process requires just two visits – the first to create the impression of your teeth, and the second for your fitting. Many of our patients have their new smile in as little as two weeks.
- Affordable. Snap-On Smiles cost less than many other cosmetic dentistry solutions.
- Works for almost everyone. Most people are candidates for Snap-On Smile, including those who are not candidates for bridges or implants, and anyone who wants a more attractive, comfortable alternative to a partial denture.
- Painless. Because the Snap-On Smile appliance slips right over your teeth, we do not need to give you shots or alter your natural tooth structure in any way.
- Reversible. Since your teeth have not been altered, you are able to return to your natural smile at any time.
Keep In Mind
As with any dental solution, Snap-On Smile isn’t the ideal solution for everyone. Keep the following in mind:
- Snap-On Smile is a temporary solution. With proper care, the appliance can last several years. However, most people use them to test drive a new smile before committing to a more permanent cosmetic dentistry procedure, such as veneers or Invisalign®.
- As you adjust to the presence of the appliance in your mouth, you might experience some change in your speech. Most people adjust within a week or two.
- We recommend that you wear your Snap-On Smile all day to shorten the adjustment period, removing it only while you sleep.
- While the appliance does not stain easily, certain dark beverages (coffee, wine, soda) can stain it over time. Be sure to use the Snap-On Smile cleaning kit regularly to maintain your beautiful smile.
- You can eat and drink normally while you wear the appliance, but we recommend you not chew gum, or eat sticky foods.
