Mesa Snap-On Smile
If you’ve always wanted a different smile but porcelain veneers are out of your league, a snap-on smile can give you a new look without breaking your budget.
Snap-on smiles are not a permanent smile makeover, and they don’t create the same effect as porcelain veneers, but they can be a relatively quick, inexpensive fix for certain situations.
Special Mesa Events Get Brighter with a Snap-On Smile
The Snap-On smile is made out of acrylic, not porcelain, so realistically it will not have the same sheen and realistic appearance as porcelain veneers. The appliance is made to fit over your teeth. The pictures below illustrate an excellent result with a Snap-On Smile.
Who is a candidate for a Snap-On Smile?
This appliance might be a good choice for you if you fit any of these situations:
You need a temporary tooth replacement while waiting for dental implant root forms to heal.
You want a smile makeover, but can’t afford porcelain veneers.
You just need a temporary fix for a big event.
What are the practical concerns when wearing this appliance?
The Snap-On Smile can be removed to brush and floss, then replaced. You can eat and drink with the appliance in place, but if you do so, make sure you immediately excuse yourself to brush and floss right after the meal. Food particles will be held against the teeth inside the appliance, which will promote tooth decay if you get into the habit of neglecting to brush, and will likely give you bad breath in the bargain.
This appliance is simply not meant to be permanent, so it will wear out in approximately 2-5 years, depending on how often you use it.
