Meet the Snap On Smile – a thin, flexible, resin shell of perfect teeth that snaps over your actual teeth like a retainer. No adhesive, no drilling.
In 2004, Dr. Marc Liechtung, a cosmetic dentist in New York, introduced the Snap on Smile. This appliance is made of a strong and durable crystallized acetic resin. It was designed to provide a temporary solution for people wanting that “Hollywood Smile”, yet unable to afford the more costly veneers. The Snap-on Smile offers patients with tooth imperfections a solution that suits their lifestyle.
About Snap on Smile
If you don’t particularly like the shape of your teeth or are missing teeth, you have two options. One, is to go a cosmetic dentist and have undergo traditional dental treatment with implants and veneers. The other is to consider getting the less inexpensive Snap-on Smile. While cosmetic dentistry can provide both treatment for tooth imperfections and total oral care management, the costs can be astronomical. And if the patient is financially restrained, this new device is considered an ideal alternative.
Traditionally, veneer implants require several visits office visits and, depending on the condition of the patients mouth, can run from several weeks to several months of care. And while permanent or removable veneers are more natural and can last a long time, problems can develop. The Snap-on Smile device is similar to a removable veneer that offers you a great smile at a very affordable price.
Since being introduced into dentistry, the Snap-on Smile has caught the eye of millions of folks. It has revolutionized the area of cosmetic dentistry. But before having the appliance made, a dental patient must have a consultation and diagnosis with their cosmetic dentist to determine if they are a suitable candidate. It is also important for a dentist to offer this as a viable alternative, if warranted. But, the area of cosmetic dentistry should not be compromised with the Snap-on Smile device. Treating the root of dental problems should always the primary concern for both the dental patient and the dentist.
