Snap of Smile Q & A

What is the Snap-On Smile®?

Snap-On Smile® is the name of a popular and affordable cosmetic dentistry device that helps patients enjoy a beautiful smile without prolonged and costly procedures and treatments. The Snap-On Smile® is designed to slip on over your own natural teeth, using patented technology and state-of-the-art materials to correct an array of aesthetic issues so patients can get a picture-perfect smile quickly and affordably. Plus, the thin design makes the Snap-On Smile® surprisingly comfortable and secure enough that it can even be worn when eating and drinking. The device is also very easy to care for, and it’s designed to provide a temporary or permanent solution for cosmetic issues.

How is a Snap-On Smile® made?

Snap-On Smile® uses a proprietary formulation of strong, durable resins that can be tinted and shaped to look just like natural teeth. The process begins with impressions of your own teeth and a careful selection of the tint and “smile style” you’re looking for. The impressions are sent to a dental lab that specializes in Snap-On Smile® design and creation. About three weeks later, you return to the office where your Snap-On Smile® is carefully adjusted for a completely comfortable fit. The Snap-On Smile® procedure is painless, no needles are necessary, and the structure of your teeth remains unchanged.

Is a Snap-On Smile® right for me?

The Snap-On Smile® is designed to correct many types of cosmetic issues, including gaps between teeth, deeply stained or discolored teeth, crooked teeth, missing teeth, worn teeth, and cracked or chipped teeth, and it’s available for both upper and lower teeth. Plus, the Snap-On Smile® can be a great option for people who aren’t good candidates for bridges or dentures, or who can’t afford more expensive restorations. And of course, because the Snap-On Smile® is ready to wear in just a few weeks, it’s a great solution for anyone who wants a great-looking smile without delay.
