Enhance Your Smile With Snap-On Smile

Hi, this is Dr. Antolak from TheGentleDentist.com in Shelby Township, Michigan. What I want to show you today is something called a Snap-On Smile. Snap-On Smile is a short term to medium term length type of treatment which will really help to enhance somebody who can’t afford to have a full set of of veneers or crowns. This something that will help in the short term and help transition them maybe a situation where the mouth might not look so great to where it looked decent but not as good as it will when they have the final dentistry done.

The Snap-On Smile is made out of plastic.  It’s plastic material that is relatively hard. You can actually move it like you see me moving it back and forth and it’s flexible, and it goes over the teeth. So it will replace missing teeth, for example, up in here and here, and lengthen teeth and it’ll make them a little bit larger.  With that in mind, that is also one of the reasons why it may work it if we have to add thickness to it. sometimes, if we add thickness to it, someone’s teeth might look too long, and might not look natural. So, that’s one of the things that we have to look out to see if this is the type of care for you if you  don’t have the smile that you like.

It is definitely something that a number of our patients who have elected to get this type of care have done, and they’re happy about it. It’s really helped to transform them and change them, but we have to be very careful on our selection of cases. If fact, what I’ll do, is I’ll take white wax, soft, and I’ll actually place it on their teeth to represent what it would look like to have a little bit extra thickness and for them to try it out.

If it’s something that they think there’s just no way they can do it, then there’s no harm done. If it’s something they think will look good, we’ll proceed and make them. It’s around $1100 per arch to have this done and that’s usually the price of one veneer and one crown in the month.  So you can get your 14 teeth done for the price of one. And especially if it’s made to allow you to go out and that would be something worth while.

People often ask me you know this something I can chew with and I say yes it is. You can’t chew anything too hard, and unfortunately, there’s still facts since it’s over it still can possibly get food on the inside as it might lift up slightly usually has a pretty good fit fit it over the teeth. But still, with anything that’s not natural or something that’s bonded right to the teeth, there’s a potential that that can take place.

It’s definitely worthwhile looking into, especially if you’ve got missing teeth, some chipped teeth,  discolored teeth and you just can’t afford to have your full comprehensive dentistry done, the Snap-On Smile might be an option for you.
