A Snap-on Smile is a removable dental prosthesis that can instantly improve the appearance of your teeth. It is worn over the teeth rather than attached to them. Snap-on Smiles can conceal imperfections such as dental cracks, chips, stains, and gaps and can be customized for your upper, lower, or both arches.
At Shore Drive Dental, we use Snap-on Smiles to treat a variety of cosmetic imperfections, including gaps between teeth, crooked teeth, stained teeth, chipped teeth, or missing teeth. They can also be used as a quick and easy solution to correct minor smile imperfections, such as fixing a minor overbite or underbite.
How Do Snap-on Smiles Work?
Snap-on Smiles are made using high-quality, durable materials. They are comfortable for patients and don’t require wires or metal clasps to stay in place.
The dentist will take an impression of your teeth before carefully designing your Snap-on Smile. Once ready, it will be fitted to your existing teeth by our dentist. Each Snap-on Smile is custom-made to look natural and beautiful for every patient.
Because they are removable, Snap-on Smiles can be taken out of the mouth for easy cleaning. Patients should also remove their Snap-on Smiles when engaging in activities that could damage them. For example, patients should not wear a Snap-on Smile while working out.
Most Snap-on Smiles last between three to five years before needing to be replaced. Patients should make an appointment with the dentist if they notice any damage to the appliance or if their teeth have shifted and the Snap-on Smile no longer fits comfortably. Our dentist can order a new Snap-on Smile or quickly repair the previous one, so the patient doesn’t go without their restoration for long.
Why Choose a Snap-on Smile?
The benefits of choosing a Snap-on Smile are numerous, but the most important one is that it can restore your confidence. A Snap-on Smile can fill in gaps and correct minor imperfections to give you a natural-looking outcome that you can trust will make you look good and feel great.
A Snap-on Smile is more affordable than you might think. It is significantly less expensive than other cosmetic dental procedures such as dental implants or tooth replacement with bridges and crowns. For these reasons, many patients find that this cosmetic treatment is more convenient than other procedures.
Anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their smile is a good candidate for a Snap-on Smile. For the best dental services customized to your particular needs, visit Shore Drive Dental at 4417A Shore Dr, Virginia Beach, VA 23455, or call (757) 460-1939.
