A Quick Fix for a Great Smile

How the Snap On Smile can work for our Waltham Cross patients.

Cosmetic dental procedures, such as teeth whitening or dental veneers, are now widely available to improve the appearance of your smile. Despite its increasing popularity though, the UK is still a long way behind the USA when it comes to people having these procedures. This may be because cosmetic dental procedures are well established there and relatively new in this country.

It may also be the ‘British reserve’ about taking chances. With this in mind, we take a look at the Snap On Smile, which offers a great way to see how your teeth could look, following cosmetic dentistry, but without any invasive permanent procedures.

What is the Snap On Smile?

The Snap On Smile is, as the name suggests, a dental appliance which simply snaps on over your existing teeth.

It is made from a crystallised acetyl resin which is stain resistant and can be made in any shade that the patient wishes. Whilst some patients opt for very white teeth, many adopt a shade nearer to their own but a little brighter.

The appliance is made once impressions and photographs have been taken of your teeth at our dental practice near Waltham Cross. These are then sent to a laboratory where they will be made. This usually takes approximately one month.

Who would use one?

As mentioned before, the Snap on Smile is an excellent way of discovering how your teeth would look following cosmetic dental procedures. It is also a useful way of gauging how friends and colleagues react to your new look. As well as this though, they are also very useful for patients of the Lodge Dental Suite who may not be overly concerned about their own smile but would find it a useful boost to improve it for special occasions.

An example of this might be at a wedding, where you want to look your best for the photographs.

They can also be used in a professional environment such as an interview or presentation where a warm smile can help you to connect with other people who may have influence over the outcome.

In fact, many studies have shown that people with a great smile tend to do better in life and have more opportunities. With the Snap On Smile, you can simply wear this when you feel that you would benefit from a better smile and keep it in its case whilst you are relaxing at home.
