What is a Snap-On Smile?
A Snap-On Smile is an arch that snaps into place over your own teeth. It will cover discolored, damaged, or missing teeth, so you can feel confident again. It is made of a tough and durable crystallized acetyl resin that tends to last from two to five years with regular wear.
Dr. Dennis will first meet with you to determine if you are a candidate for a Snap-On Smile. If that is the case, the two of you will discuss how you would like your smile to look. She will then create a smile design with your help. We’ll even photoshop the smile design into your photo, so you’ll be able to see what it will look like immediately. Once this is accomplished, we will take an impression of your teeth and create a plaster model that we’ll send to the laboratory along with Dr. Dennis’s detailed instructions.
Once your smile comes back from the lab, you’ll simply snap it in. The smile is durable enough to eat with, and it will be very important to remove it for regular hygiene after each time you eat. You can just snap it out to brush and floss.
