Snap on Smile
What is Snap-On Smile?
Snap-On Smile is a comfortable, removable dental appliance that involves no drilling, filing down of existing tooth structure, injections, cementation nor adhesives. Its patented design is flexible, incredibly strong, and functional. The slightly flexible material (acetyl resin) used in the fabrication of Snap-On Smile allows it to expand over the teeth and hug them tightly so the patient can eat and speak without the appliance coming loose or shifting.
Snap-On Smile does not impinge on the gum tissue nor cover the palate, as its retention is completely tooth-borne. Snap-On Smile is non-invasive and easily removable, making it completely reversible.
Who is a candidate for Snap-On Smile?
Patients looking for a non-invasive, reversible, affordable approach to permanent restorative and cosmetic dentistry are excellent candidates for Snap-On Smile. It’s an easy, quick and affordable solution for patients who want to quickly feel better, look better, and function better.
For many patients, Snap-On Smile gives them options they never had before. It is a great solution for patients who are unable to receive permanent improvements, such as crowns, veneers, and implants because they are medically compromised, their age precludes them from extensive treatments, or they are simply afraid to have extensive dental work done. Older patients with medical conditions such as cancer or heart disease may not be candidates for implants or bridges. Snap-On Smile can alleviate dental issues and help these patients achieve a more pleasing smile in the interim or long-term. In some cases of periodontal disease, it can be used as a temporary splint for mobile teeth while the patient undergoes treatment. Patients going through implant surgery can use it as a temporary retainer. With Snap-On Smile®, patients can easily maintain excellent oral hygiene. Snap-On Smile is also ideal for those patients considering a more permanent restoration like veneers, as the appliance allows them to preview their new smile.
