Patients who wish to get a beautiful and pleasing smile in a short span of time can choose Snap-on Smile.

The teeth are custom-fabricated to suit each patient’s dental contour and fit them perfectly. They instantly transform your oral aesthetic and allow you to smile with confidence.
Are you a candidate for Snap-on Smile?
Snap-on Smile is an inexpensive and straightforward option for patients who are unhappy with their smile. Some of the cosmetic dental issues that Snap-on Smile can treat are as follows:
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Naturally misshapen teeth
- Teeth that have worn out excessively
- Irregular and uneven gaps between the teeth
- Misaligned teeth (Malocclusion)
- Extreme discoloration of the teeth which is not treatable by teeth whitening solutions
- Missing teeth
Is Snap-on Smile a worthy replacement for missing teeth?
The common causes of missing teeth are aging, external trauma to the mouth, cavities, root canal infection, etc. A missing front tooth can lead to a lot of embarrassment when you talk or smile, and someone mocks you. Just the thought of it can seem so uncomfortable. To get the extracted tooth restored, patients should qualify a few conditions, such as spacing available for placing the restoration, jawbone health, bone shrinking, strength of the adjoining teeth, drifting of teeth, etc. Patients who do not qualify for implants or bridges can get their missing teeth replaced using Snap-on Smile.
You can get your very own customized Snap-on Smile in just two visits to our dental practice. We will discuss the cosmetic issues that you have and how Snap-on Smile can benefit you during the first visit. The dentist will take digital impressions of your teeth and share it with a dental laboratory for fabrication.
It ideally takes a couple of weeks for the dental appliance to be finished in the lab. During the following appointment, the dentist will place it on your teeth and check for perfect fit and comfort. If any changes are required in the contour, the dentist will make them and polish them if necessary. You can put on the appliances and take them off whenever required, such as while going to bed. Ensure no food debris gets lodged in the appliances as it can cause discomfort or even change their shape.
