The Snap-On Smile is a cosmetic restorative solution for patients who want to get smile makeover treatments done without spending a lot of money. It is a removable appliance that can be used to enhance the appearance of the patient's teeth. It is made from a blend of plastic and porcelain that provides excellent aesthetics and durability.
What Is the Purpose of the Snap-On Smile?
The main purpose of the Snap-On Smile is to change the appearance of your teeth by whitening them. The plastic part of the appliance covers the visible portion of your teeth, while the porcelain part covers their occlusal surfaces. This helps to hide the stains on your teeth as well as their imperfections.
The other purpose of this restorative appliance is to provide support to your cracked or chipped teeth. If you have an injury that has resulted in a tooth fracture, it is best to get it restored as soon as possible. Otherwise, it may result in tooth loss. The Snap-On Smile can provide support to such teeth, helping you to bite and chew food like normal.
How Is the Snap-On Smile Applied?
The dentist will take a thorough look at your teeth during the initial consultation to determine your candidacy for this type of restorative device. The device will be fabricated in a dental laboratory from a mold of your teeth that had been previously taken. We will ensure that it fits in perfectly without any hassle or discomfort.
Once it is done, you will be asked to bite into a piece of cheese and hold a piece of glass in your mouth for better functionality and appearance. After this, we will clean your teeth and apply fluoride. Then, we will fix it on your teeth with adhesive material. The dentist will make sure that it fits perfectly before advising you on its care and maintenance.
How Do You Care for the Snap-On Smile?
You should brush and floss your teeth regularly so that they stay healthy. However, while wearing the Snap-On Smile, you should take extra care while brushing your teeth as they may get displaced with too much force used on them. Also, avoid eating sticky foods as they may stick to the device and spoil its appearance. Brush them gently once every day using a soft-bristle toothbrush. Rinse them with water after every meal and schedule regular dental consultations for professional cleaning and consultations.
