Snap-On Smile is a non-invasive cosmetic way to obtain a fantastic smile easily and painlessly. This new dental product is a removable arch that snaps in and out of place over your existing teeth to create an aesthetically pleasing smile. A Snap-On Smile does not correct any dental problems but rather masks them until you can arrange for the treatment that you need.
Pediatric dentists may offer the Snap-On Smile to their young patients if children are transitioning from baby teeth to permanent teeth or if a child has congenital abnormalities in the teeth. A children’s dentist may also recommend this appliance if your child does any type of modeling or acting.
How It Works
Snap-On Smile requires no drilling or other invasive dental procedures. Your dentist will take an impression of your child’s arch and teeth. From this impression, an appliance is made to fit over the teeth in order to disguise imperfections or missing teeth.
Your dentist will receive the completed custom-made Snap-On Smile approximately three weeks after your child’s initial visit. He or she will check to ensure that the cosmetic appliance fits over your child’s teeth properly. If everything fits well, your child will be ready to go. There is no additional maintenance required beyond daily cleaning.
What You Can Expect
Snap-On Smile is a cost-effective cosmetic dental solution for nearly anyone who wants a better smile and does not have severe dental decay or disease. Since the Snap-On Smile appliance is custom-made to fit directly over the existing teeth, you can experience a virtually instantaneous transformation in appearance. You’ll see the difference in your teeth right away, especially if you have gaps or crooked or missing teeth.
