Lafayette LA Snap-On Smile

What Is a Snap-On Smile?

A Snap-On Smile will temporarily makeover your smile by simply snapping in place over your teeth. Maybe you have an upcoming special occasion where you want to impress, like a wedding, graduation. Or perhaps you want to try out a new look. This quick and easy method is a fraction of the cost of porcelain veneers.

If you want a beautiful smile, you’ll want to go with porcelain veneers. You won’t get that with the Snap-On Smile. The teeth won’t sparkle like natural teeth, and they might be a little bulky looking. But the Snap-On Smile can give you an acceptable smile, which can maybe get you by until you can afford something better.

How It Is Made

This product is made out of crystallized acetyl resin by DenMat company. It is made to be flexible yet reasonably durable. It is strong enough to eat with, and if taken care of properly, can last up to four years.

To begin, we will meet with you to determine exactly how you want your smile to look. We will take impressions of your teeth, and then we will send this model off to the laboratory in California.

Caring For Your Snap-On Smile

It is important to keep your Snap-On Smile clean by removing it immediately after eating to brush and floss your teeth. It is okay to eat with this product, but you must be careful that food particles do not become trapped in the appliance. This scenario has the potential to cause severe tooth decay. Remove it after enjoying your meal, clean your teeth, and replace it.
