What Is Snap-on Smile®?

Do you have an upcoming event or an important meeting but you are not confident about your smile? People with dental problems such as missing teeth, gaps, stains, or chips are often not confident about their smiles compared to people with healthy-looking teeth. Your smile plays a big part in your overall appearance, improving people’s perception of you. 


Innovations in dentistry have provided options to people with less than perfect smiles to improve the appearance of their smiles. If you are looking to achieve an attractive “Hollywood smile,” you now have the option to use a Snap-On Smile®. 




What Is a Snap-on Smile?



This smile device is used to cover any dental flaws one may have for special occasions. A Snap-On Smile is made from resin to create a set of teeth that fits on top of an individual’s natural teeth. 


Just as the name suggests, it snaps on to cover up discolored, decayed, or broken teeth. It is custom-made for the express purpose of snapping in and out easily. A Snap-On Smile is ideal for people who may not afford invasive and complex cosmetic dental procedures. 




What Happens During Your Snap-on Smile Appointment?



A Snap-On Smile is only delivered and prescribed by a licensed dentist. During the appointment, your dentist takes few impressions of your teeth. The dentist will ask you to choose a shade you want to reflect on your smile. 


The whole process is painless. The dentist then sends the impressions taken to a special lab where the Snap-On dentures are created. Once they are ready, you can pick them up, snap them in place, and enjoy your new perfect smile. 




How Frequently Can You Wear a Snap-On?



A Snap-On Smile is not for everyday wear. You can only wear them on special occasions. Avoid eating and drinking while you have a Snap-On Smile to prevent damage and staining. It is also not advisable to wear it when sleeping. 




Benefits of a Snap-on Smile



The Snap-On smile is gaining popularity mainly for three reasons. It is fast, affordable, and painless. With a Snap-On Smile, you don’t have to go through painful or invasive procedures to achieve the perfect smile. Additionally, your natural teeth are not affected in any way when using these temporary dentures. 


Another major advantage a Snap-On Smile has over other types of cosmetic dental options is that it is affordable. With other options, you may end up spending hundreds of dollars just to fix a tooth. One of the reasons that make a Snap-On Smile affordable is the fact that it is not intended to be a permanent fix for missing, chipped, or stained teeth.


The Snap-On Smile offers instant results. You can achieve your perfect smile after only two painless appointments. Additionally, you don’t need to take time off to recover after the procedure. 


Remember, while using a Snap-On Smile, you must continue to observe good oral hygiene. If you do not brush and floss regularly, you can have plaque buildup, causing cavities. This temporary option can help you achieve a perfect smile. You can talk to your dentist about other ideal options that can give you permanent results with your dental problems.
