Snap-on Smile is a manufactured smile that snaps right over your existing teeth. If you’re looking for a fast way to get a smile makeover at a fraction of the price of porcelain veneers, then snap-on smile might be for you. Made out of crystallized acetyl resin by Den-Mat Laboratories, it will not be the type of stunning smile you would get with porcelain veneers, but it can improve your smile. Below are pictures that will give you an idea of what type of results you can expect.
Libertyville Snap-on Smile Procedure
First you and Dr. Potts will discuss the type of smile you are looking for. The next step in the process will be molding an impression of your teeth. A plaster model will be made from the impression and sent to the lab along with the instructions Dr. Potts has regarding your smile design. When your snap-on smile arrives, you simply snap it in place. It is that simple.
The smile will last up to four years. It is strong enough that you can eat with it, but it is probably a good idea for you to remove it and swish some water around the appliance and your teeth after eating. You’ll also want to clean and remove them at night.
