Ten Benefits Of A Snap On Smile

The treatment free way to have a great smile in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire.

At The Lodge Dental Suite, we see a lot of patients who come to us specifically for cosmetic dental treatments. Those whose teeth are nice and even and who simply require a teeth whitening procedure to make them brighter require no  invasive dental procedures at all.

Other patients with chipped, cracked or crooked teeth may need to undergo minor corrective dental surgery or perhaps a lengthy period of wearing braces to correct their problems. Whilst these offer incredible benefits, the idea of this type of treatment can deter some patients. For these people, we do offer an alternative method which requires no surgery at all and is very effective and convenient way to improve your appearance.

The Snap On Smile

As the name implies, the Snap On Smile is a dental appliance that literally ‘snaps’ over your natural teeth; the flexible material used allows them to flex with your teeth and hold tightly on to them, enabling you to eat and continue your daily life as normal. There are a wide range of styles and shades to choose from. As a guide, for a natural appearance,  it is often advised to match the colour of your new smile to that of the whites of your eyes.

Impressions of your teeth will be taken and the results sent to a laboratory for your Snap On Smile to be produced. This process should take approximately one month before it is ready.

Benefits

A Snap On Smile offers a number of benefits to our patients from surrounding areas including Cheshunt, Waltham Cross and Cuffley. These include:

1.    A great looking smile with no dental surgery

2.    Ease of fitting and removal

3.    Simply wear them when you want. e.g. special occasions and remove them when at home if you wish.

4.    Comfortable and natural looking

5.    An excellent opportunity to see how your smile could look before undertaking more permanent procedures such as dental veneers

6.    Ideal for people with serious health issues who may not be able to undergo certain dental procedures

7.    A quick and affordable way of having great looking teeth

8.    An instant confidence booster

9.    Easy to clean and to remove to clean your own natural teeth

10.  Can, in some cases, be used to protect veneers whilst sleeping if you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding). You should discuss this with the dentist.

Disadvantages

Because no treatment of your natural teeth is required for a Snap On Smile, there are virtually no disadvantages to this appliance. There may be a short period where it feels a little strange, and a few people notice that it affects speech initially. Within a day or so, these minor points should no longer be noticeable. You do have to keep your teeth very clean and remove the appliance regularly to ensure your dental hygiene is not compromised.
