Snap-on-Smile

A Snap-on-Smile is a unique approach to a smile makeover that does not involve any shots, drilling or tooth preparation. This unique alternative to dental veneers is much more affordable and can:

  • Improve dental aesthetics
  • Make teeth appear straighter
  • Correct spacing, discoloration or broken teeth
  • Replace missing teeth

Snap-on-Smiles are worn directly over your natural teeth. Made of a durable resin material, they are thin and strong enough to be worn during eating and other normal activities. They can be worn temporarily or on a permanent basis for up to 5 years or more. Because they are removable, you can easily keep them clean while you brush and floss your natural teeth as you normally would.

The decreased expense for Snap-on-Smiles compared to dental veneers allow dental patients to increase their confidence and make over their entire smile in a much more affordable manner. Because they only require 2 short appointments, there is no need for a time investment in therapies like braces, whitening or invasive cosmetic treatment. At the first appointment your dentist will take an impression of your teeth, as well as work with you to select the shade of smile that you have in mind. The inspection and shade selection are then sent to a dental laboratory, which fabricates your Snap-on-Smile within just a few weeks. At the second appointment your dentist will try in the appliances as well as go over home care instructions with you.

If you’ve been looking for a way to increase your confidence and boost the appearance of your smile, Snap-on-Smile may be a great choice for you!
