What is Snap on Smile?
Snap- On Smile is an exciting new dental device which gives you a picture perfect smile at a fraction of the cost of veneers! Its exclusive design is flexible, very strong, and snaps right over your own natural teeth, instantly giving you a beautiful smile.It requires no cutting down of tooth tissue, no dental injections, and no bonding to tooth tissue.
Snap-on Smile stays on your teeth by engaging the undercuts around your teeth, so it does not impinge on your gum tissue nor does it cover the roof of your mouth, making it look and feel very natural. Snap-On Smile is easily removable, completely reversible and is an excellent option for patients looking for a non-invasive, temporary and affordable approach to cosmetic dentistry.
Perfect for special occasions, such as weddings or interviews, Snap-On Smile can also be a way to "test drive" a new smile before committing to more expensive and permanent cosmetic dental procedures.
