Snap-On Smile

Removable, non-invasive, temporary approach to cosmetic dentistry.

Snap-On Smile is a revolutionary cosmetic dental appliance made of very thin yet extremely strong dental resin. It is painless and easy to use as it fits over your own teeth to give a natural, beautiful smile.

Snap-On Smile is easily removable, completely reversible and is an excellent option for patients looking for a non-invasive, temporary and affordable approach to cosmetic dentistry. As well as an instant cosmetic option, it also serves as a chance for patients to see how their teeth could look before having other cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers.

You can eat and drink with Snap-On Smile and it can be used as a temporary solution such as wanting to show off your smile for your wedding day or as a long-term smile enhancement. Snap-On Smile can last for years, yet is affordable enough to act as a temporary measure.

Snap on Smile FAQ’s

Snap-On Smile is made of a crystallized acetyl resin, which makes it very durable and stain resistant as opposed to acrylic. This material also allows the Snap-On Smile appliance to be as thin as half a millimetre without compromising its strength. It is durable, resists stains from cigarettes, wine and coffee, and allows patients to eat while wearing it. It is very strong and can easily be cleaned by gently brushing with a soft toothbrush twice daily.

We will take photos and impressions of your teeth. You choose from different smile shapes and shades for your Snap-On Smile. In about four weeks, the exclusive lab at Snap-On Smile will create and send us your new appliance for final insertion. Snap it in place and wear it home.

The Snap-On Smile appliance is expected to last about 5 years and possibly longer with proper care, the same length of time as other removable appliances such as partial dentures, brux guards or night guards.

Speech can be affected for the first several hours of wear, although this varies by patient. The instructions that come with a custom-made Snap-On Smile include a list of verbal exercises to help speed up the patient’s acclimation process.

Patients are not limited to what they can eat and drink with the Snap-On Smile however, we recommend starting with a softer diet and working up to harder foods.

Yes it does! Snap-On Smile is non-toxic and hypo-allergenic and is made out of a non-porous material that prevents stains from adhering to it. The crystallized resin which is used in the fabrication of the appliance does not absorb food debris, bacteria, or become discoloured. It is durable, resists stains from cigarettes, wine and coffee, and allows you to eat normally.

We do not recommend sleeping with the Snap-On Smile in place. However, one of the indications for Snap-On Smile is that it can be used as a brux guard so a patient with permanent restorations like veneers can protect them during sleep with the Snap-On Smile. Your dentist will determine if this is right for you.

If looking for a new dentist I would definitely recommend having treatment with Melisha, especially if nervous or worried as she will put you at your ease and offers a very professional service, with excellent equipment and staff. I had a replacement bridge fitted and have been very pleased with top and bottom Snap-on Smile appliances. I have found all the services offered of a very high quality and affordable.
