Snap-On Smiles Q & A

What is a Snap-On Smile?

A Snap-On Smile is a dental device that quickly and easily snaps over your teeth and immediately improves the appearance of your smile. It’s made from a dental resin that’s thin enough to fit over your existing teeth, yet strong enough to stand up to eating and normal wear and tear. The unique resin is natural-looking, flexible, and comfortable, so you can wear it all day.

The Snap-On Smile comes in two pieces -- one for upper and the other for lower teeth. It’s custom-made to fit your teeth, so it covers all the surfaces. It stays in place without adhesives and without hurting your gums. The resin also resists stains, so it’s easy to care for.

You can use a Snap-On Smile for a long-term cosmetic solution or as a temporary solution to improve your smile while you wait for other dental work to be finished.

What dental problems are improved with a Snap-On Smile?

The Snap-On Smile helps you solve a variety of problems It can:

  • Hide cosmetic concerns like gaps, crooked teeth, stained teeth, and missing teeth
  • Improve your smile without the expense of dental procedures
  • Replace removable partial dentures
  • Improve your smile when you’re not a candidate for bridges or implants

Who can get a Snap-On Smile?

While almost anyone can get a Snap-On Smile, there are some conditions that are not compatible with the snap-on device:

Multiple missing teeth: You can’t have too many missing teeth because the device must be able to snap securely over existing teeth.  

Tooth decay: Snap-On Smile can’t be worn over active tooth decay, so you’ll need to get cavities fixed before getting a Snap-On Smile.

Gums: You must have healthy gums with no signs of gum disease.

What is the procedure for getting a Snap-On Smile?

After your doctor at About Smiles gives you a check-up to be sure you’re a good candidate for Snap-On Smile, impressions will be taken of your teeth and you’ll choose which smile shape and tooth color you want. The information is sent to the Snap-On Smile lab, where your device is made. It takes about three weeks to get your new smile back from the lab, and you can wear it right away.
