Would you like to make changes to your smile, but feel that veneers and other options are simply out of your price range? Or maybe a fear of drilling prevents you from undergoing most cosmetic dental procedures.
If so, then you may be interested in another type of smile make-over option offered by the Yuba City Dentistry Group known as Snap-On Smile.
What is Snap-On Smile?
Snap-On Smile is a patented, wearable appliance that fits over your natural teeth. It is made of a proprietary formula of high-tech dental resin that makes it very thin yet extremely strong. It’s available for both upper and lower teeth, and can be used as a temporary or permanent solution.
Snap-On Smile is used by patients who are:
Unhappy with gaps, crooked, stained or missing teeth
Not candidates for bridges or implants
Are afraid of more complex dental procedures
Looking for an alternative option for a “smile makeover”
How does the procedure of getting a Snap-On Smile work?
First, you will have an appointment with your dentist and he or she will determine if you are a candidate for Snap-On smile. If so, you can pick the style and shade of your new smile. Next, your dentist will make an impression of your existing teeth and send that mold to a dental lab.
In about three weeks, you’ll come in for a final appointment; your dentist will make a few minor adjustments and you can wear your new Snap-On Smile home.
Is It for Me?
Many patients like Snap-On smile because the procedure is painless, requiring no shots, drilling, or removal of any parts of the teeth. Snap-On Smile looks natural, and won’t damage your natural teeth.
You can eat and drink most beverages while wearing the appliance; however, there are certain limitations you will be made aware of, such as avoiding sticky foods and chewing gum. Additionally, Snap-On Smile comes with a special cleaning solution that must be refilled through your dentist.
