Snap-on-Smile Q&A

What is Snap-On-Smile®?

Snap-On-Smile is a custom-crafted mouthpiece that fits snugly over your natural teeth. It offers a beautiful smile without the need for a time-consuming or expensive dental procedure. 

Snap-On-Smile is made from a strong, thin, and natural-looking material. It can fit over your upper or lower arch and allows you to bite and chew as you normally would.

Who can benefit from Snap-On-Smile?

Anyone who feels self-conscious about the appearance of their teeth can benefit from Snap-On-Smile. You might also benefit if you:

  • Have crooked, stained, or missing teeth
  • Aren’t a candidate for bridges or dental implants
  • Want a Hollywood-worthy smile without veneers or Lumineers®
  • Wear a removable partial denture and want a more comfortable alternative

The material that Snap-On-Smile is made from mimics the color and light-reflecting properties of your natural tooth enamel. That ensures the appliance blends in with your smile.

What does getting a Snap-On-Smile involve?

Getting a Snap-On-Smile begins with an in-office consultation. During your initial appointment, the team conducts an oral exam, reviews your oral health history, and asks about your goals for treatment. 

They then work with you to select a shade of white that mimics the color of your natural teeth. After gathering the necessary information, the team takes impressions of your teeth.

They send your impressions to a dental laboratory that manufactures your custom Snap-On-Smile. About a week later you return to the office. The team has you try on your custom Snap-On-Smile and makes adjustments as necessary.

Unlike other types of cosmetic restorations, there’s no drilling, tooth prep, or local anesthesia involved.

Do I need to clean my Snap-On-Smile? 

It’s important to clean your Snap-On-Smile regularly. Every time you eat or drink, plaque forms. Plaque is a thin film that contains saliva, food particles, and bacteria. Over time, it builds up on your Snap-On-Smile and may cause stains.

To clean your Snap-On-Smile, place the appliance in an empty glass. Pour half a cup of the Snap-On-Smile cleaning solution into the glass. Pour cool tap water into the cup until your Snap-On-Smile is immersed, and let it soak for 15 minutes.

Remove your Snap-On-Smile from the glass, rinse it off in cool tap water, and gently brush it with a soft-bristle toothbrush. By following these steps once a day, your Snap-On-Smile will stay in great shape for years to come.
