Snap On Smile
Your Prairie Village dentist has the perfect alternative: Snap-On Smile. Snap-On Smile is an affordable way to cover small and large teeth imperfections. You can have a brand new smile instantly and without surgery or discomfort! You can get a great new smile in just a few short visits to get back to what you enjoy doing!
What is Snap-On Smile?
Snap-On Smile is a dental appliance that fits directly over your natural teeth. No drills, surgery or enamel removal required! Snap-On Smile is completely reversible, removable and non-invasive. You just “snap them on” and forget about them!
The appliance is made from strong, ultrathin resin (can be made up to .5 mm thin) that allows you to smile confidently and eat without discomfort. Unlike ordinary acrylic materials that stain and wear easily, the special resin used for the Snap-On Smile is durable and mimics the sheen of real enamel.
The Snap-On Smile Procedure
Dr. Smith will examine your mouth and determine if you are a good candidate for the Snap-On Smile procedure. Next, he will take a bite registration and impressions of the arch that will receive the appliance (Snap-On Smile can also be used on both arches). You and Dr. Smith will choose the shade and shape from a Smile Style Guide, which features 23 shades and 18 smile designs.
Finally, the treatment plan is sent to the Snap-On Smile laboratory that will create the appliance. In about 14 days, your new smile is ready to be worn! There is no bonding required. Simply wear the appliance over your teeth.
While you can wear the Snap-On Smile appliance for the long-term, it is not designed as a permanent cosmetic restoration like crowns. Find out today if you’re a candidate for this procedure. Call (913) 649-5600 or click here to schedule a consultation online!
