What is a Snap-On Smiles?
Snap-On Smiles was a solution devised for those who wanted a way to fix their smile at an affordable cost and with less invasive procedures. With the look of a natural smile, Snap-On Smiles literally snap onto your existing teeth, giving you the beautiful smile you have always dreamed of! It starts with one visit to your local dentist’s office. In this initial consult, you and your dentist will discuss your dental needs and establish what type of smile you wish to have. This includes the color of your new smile as well as the style.
Your dentist will then take impressions of your natural teeth to have your fit perfectly made by the Snap-On Smiles dental lab technicians. Made with resin that resembles the natural color of teeth, your perfect smile is formed to fit over your teeth and give you a natural looking smile with the strength of normal teeth. Once the mold is made, which usually take around three weeks, you will see your dentist again for your final fitting. If you are satisfied with the Snap-On Smile that was made for you, you can walk out of the office wearing your new smile with confidence and pride!
How Much Does Snap-on Smiles Cost?
Getting a full set versus a partial set will vary in price. The overall cost of this procedure can range from $1000 to $4000 per set. You can also setup a payment plan that works for you.
What are the Pros and Cons of Snap-on Smiles?
Patients choose Snap-On Smiles for many reasons. First, Snap-On Smiles are much most cost-friendly than other dentures or implants. Secondly, Snap-On Smiles do not require any painful surgeries or alterations to your natural teeth that may weaken the tooth structure. Unlike other veneers or implants, there are no physical changes made to your current smile.
Also, because there is no surgery involved, there are no needles or drills involved. The fitting can be made with a local anesthetic. Lastly, Snap-On Smiles give you fast and instant results. Your Snap-On Smile can be done in just a few weeks with two visits to your local dentist, while other cosmetic dental procedures take years to complete. As soon as your mold is ready, you can simply snap in your new smile!
However, there are some drawbacks to be aware of when deciding on a Snap-On Smiles. First, your appliance will need to be replaced, on average, every three to four years. This cost should be kept in mind when making your decision. Secondly, the device is placed over your current teeth, so there can be a bulkiness to them if you had larger teeth to begin with. This can make the teeth seem to be “too good,” but the professionals at Maestri Dental can work with you to make sure that your smile looks as natural as possible. Lastly, as with many other cosmetic procedures, Snap-On Smiles are not typically covered by insurance, but finance options are available to you.
