Have you ever dreamed about instantly and painlessly achieving a perfect smile? If so, you might be interested in Snap-On Smile, a conservative cosmetic treatment available to those who wish to “try out” a new smile. A removable appliance, Snap-On Smile is custom designed to fit over your existing teeth and improve the appearance of your smile. Requiring no tooth removal, it can be used as a temporary or a permanent solution to cosmetic dental flaws.
Who might be interested in a Snap-On Smile?
If you want to hide cosmetic dental flaws like gaps between teeth, crooked teeth, stained teeth, or missing teeth, you might be interested in a Snap-On Smile. It’s also useful for people who are not good candidates for bridges or implants. Finally, some people use it as a comfortable alternative to a partial denture. Since it is not a permanent procedure, Snap-On Smile can be used by people of all ages.
What are the advantages of a Snap-On Smile when compared with other cosmetic dentistry treatments?
Snap-On Smile is less expensive than many other cosmetic dentistry treatments, and it’s also comfortable and noninvasive. Your teeth will be unaltered, so you won’t have to worry about making a non-reversible decision. Additionally, unlike dentures, a Snap-On Smile can be easily snapped into and out of place. It is held in place by your natural teeth, so it doesn’t require any adhesives or glues. Plus, like many cosmetic dentistry treatments, it offers a life-changing dental solution that will likely affect your confidence as well as your appearance.
How does the process work?
You will discuss your goals with Dr. Wilkinson to establish the style and shade of teeth you prefer. Then, we will take an impression of your teeth to ensure a perfect fit. Finally, after your Snap-On Smile appliance has been created, you will return to the office for a final fitting. After these two short and painless visits, you will leave our office smiling, wearing your brand new Snap-On smile.
What is it like to wear a Snap-On Smile?
Your Snap-On Smile will be custom fit for comfort. You can eat most foods and beverages, however you should avoid chewing gum and eating sticky foods. For the first two weeks, you may experience an adjustment period in which your speech will be slightly different, however your normal speech will return quickly if you wear the Snap-On Smile all day.
How should I care for a Snap-On Smile?
When you pick up your Snap-On Smile, you will also receive a special cleaning solution, which should be used regularly. Use the provided products to ensure that your Snap-On Smile does not stain from coffee, red wine, soda, or other staining agents. With proper care, your new smile should last for many years to come. It can be viewed as a long-term or a short-term solution to your dental concerns, depending on your future goals. After receiving your Snap-On Smile, you can always call our office if you have any problems or concerns. Additionally, feel free to discuss your Snap-On Smile with Dr. Wilkinson at your bi-yearly check-ups.
