Snap-On Smile

Using Temporaries to Preview Smile Makeovers, "Snap-On" Smiles and Trial Smiles

Snap-On Smile

Snap-On Smile, also known as snap-on teeth and clip-on smile, is a patented resin-based appliance that snaps over the teeth to change their appearance. Snap-on teeth are easy to remove, flexible and strong, though the effects are temporary.
Possible uses of the Snap-On Smile include:
  • Natural-looking temporaries for crown and veneer restorations.
  • Increase the facial height (vertical dimension) of teeth.
  • Cosmetic removable partial dentures.
  • Long-term, removable smile enhancement.
Snap-on teeth also can help you and your dentist evaluate whether you can tolerate permanent cosmetic dentistry. Snap-on smiles may not be the best option for people with protrusive or mobile teeth. Similarly, they should not be worn to cover cavities, loose teeth or teeth requiring orthodontic treatment. Also, snap-ons are not recommended for people with a high smile line because the appliance won’t provide the adaptation that is possible with crowns or porcelain veneers.
After a consultation with your dentist, he/she will take photos and impressions of your teeth. You then pick from different smile shapes and shades to create your own Snap-On Smile. In about two weeks, Sabra Dental Studio will make and send your appliance to your dentist for final inspection, insertion and review of home care instructions.
