The Snap-On Smile ® is a revolutionary cosmetic dental appliance that requires no cutting down of tooth tissue, no dental injections, and no bonding. Its exclusive design is strong, flexible, and snaps right over your own natural teeth. It is easily removable, completely reversible, and is an excellent option for patients looking for a non-invasive, temporary, and affordable approach to cosmetic dentistry.
The removable device is made from a crystallized acetyl resin. This material is non-toxic. It is very strong and polishes beautifully. Patients can choose from several tooth shades and smile shapes, providing an array of choices for this custom fitted appliance.
Pretty much anyone could be a good candidate because it is not an invasive treatment. One of our cosmetic dentists can assess your eligibility in a free cosmetic consultation.
We will take photos and impressions of your teeth. You then choose from different smile shapes and shades. The exclusive lab at Snap-On Smile will then create and send us your new appliance.
It takes up to 28 days to receive the Snap-On Smile.
The Snap-On Smile Care Kit is a line of care products for cleaning and maintaining your appliance. The kit contains cleaning powder, antibacterial gel, and a storage/carry case.
