There is now a revolutionary way to provide you with a brand-new, beautiful smile, without any surgery or drilling. The Snap-On Smile offers you the ability to restore the appearance of your smile in a quick and convenient way.


If you want to improve your teeth without the traditional bother, the Snap-On Smile may be a good option for you to consider.


What Is the Snap-On Smile?

A form of cosmetic dentistry, the Snap-On Smile is an arch made of dental resin that simply snaps over your permanent teeth. Though the device is thin, the dental resin provides strength, allowing you to function normally as you would with your natural teeth.


The arch covers the entire upper or bottom row of your teeth. The arches are molded to fit directly onto your permanent teeth, removing the need for any kind of glue.


Who’s a Good Candidate for the Snap-On Smile?

Anyone who want to improve the appearance of their smile is a good potential recipient of the Snap-On Smile. Because it simply snaps over your natural teeth, this option is ideal for patients who:

  • Don’t want dental surgery
  • Have dental anxiety or phobia (non-invasive procedure)
  • Have chipped, broken, or missing teeth
  • Have gaps between their teeth
  • Don’t want their healthy enamel drilled down (required with dental crowns)
  • Want a more affordable way to improve their teeth than dental surgery
  • Want a flawless smile


The Procedure

The procedure for the Snap-On Smile takes 2 appointments.

In the first appointment, you will pick the style and shade of the teeth you want on the arch. The dentists will then make an impression of your teeth to ensure the arch is made accurately.

Once the arch is made, you will return for the second appointment. The dentist will perform a final fitting to make sure the device properly fits on your teeth. You will walk out of the dentist’s office with a brand new smile.

Using the Snap-On Smile

You can eat and drink with the arch, just as you would with your natural teeth.
However, because the device snaps over your natural teeth, it’s recommended that you avoid extremely chewy and sticky foods.


Because the arch isn’t permanently fixed to your teeth, you can simply pop out and safely store the Snap-On Smile during meals if you’re uncomfortable eating with it.


Caring for the Snap-On Smile

When you receive your Snap-On Smile, the dentist will give you a special cleaning solution to use. For the best results, you should soak the arch in the cleaning solution for 15 minutes every day.


Failing to clean the device thoroughly can provide the perfect environment for bacteria to grow. This can lead to both tooth decay and bad breath.


Wearing the Snap-On Smile doesn’t eliminate the need for you to maintain a good dental health routine for your natural teeth.


Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, floss your teeth once a day, and visit the dentist every six months.
