Achieve the Smile of Your Dreams
Cosmetic and functional issues in your smile can make it difficult to speak, chew, and smile with confidence. For patients who are deemed ineligible for dental implants or bridges, there’s still a solution—Snap-On Smile. This custom appliance fits comfortably over your teeth for an instant smile transformation.
At the Center for Advanced Dentistry, Dr. Howard is proud to offer this convenient treatment to patients looking to quickly improve their smiles without the hassle of dental adhesives or invasive procedures. Read on to learn how you may benefit from Snap-On Smile.
What Is Snap-On Smile?
Snap-On Smile is a removable arch that snaps over your teeth without covering your gums or palate, giving you a beautiful, natural-looking smile. This convenient appliance can easily conceal minor imperfections like stained, chipped, gapped, or missing teeth to further improve the look of your natural smile
Snap-On Smile’s unique formula of high-tech dental resin makes it thin yet strong. Unlike dentures, you don’t need any adhesives for this appliance, so you can eat, speak, and smile with ease and comfort just like dental implants!
What Can Snap-On-Smile Fix?
Snap-On Smile can instantly conceal a variety of dental imperfections, such as:
- Teeth gaps
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
- Missing teeth
Am I a Candidate for Snap-On Smile?
Snap-On Smile is the perfect solution for patients who would like a beautiful smile without the expense and discomfort of complex, invasive dental procedures. This treatment is also the ideal solution for patients who have an old-fashioned, removable partial denture and want a beautiful, more comfortable alternative but don’t qualify for dental bridges or implants.
However, Snap-On Smile isn’t for everyone. You may be ineligible for this treatment if you have:
- Very few natural teeth
- Advanced periodontal (gum) disease
- Loose teeth
- Orthodontic appliances
To learn if you’re an ideal candidate for Snap-On Smile, call our Loveland office at (970) 669-3918. Dr. Howard will evaluate your oral health to determine if this treatment is right for you.
The Snap-On Smile Process
Depending on your oral health needs, you may be able to receive your Snap-On Smile appliance in as few as two visits to our Loveland office. You’ll first attend a consultation with Dr. Howard, where he’ll evaluate your oral health and determine if Snap-On Smile is right for you.
If approved, you’ll pick the style and shade of your new smile before Dr. Howard makes an impression of your teeth. This impression will be used as a blueprint to create your customized appliance, which will be matched to blend with your natural smile.
It usually takes about three weeks for our office to receive your Snap-On Smile appliance. Once we do, you’ll return to our Loveland office for your final fitting. Dr. Howard will make any necessary adjustments to ensure your new smile fits comfortably and naturally!
