If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile but want to avoid costly or invasive cosmetic dentistry procedures, consider getting a Snap-On Smile. This procedure is ideal for people who:
- Have stained or crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, or missing teeth
- Currently use a partial removable denture and want a different alternative without investing in dental implants
- Are not good candidates for dental implants or bridges
If you haven’t heard of this procedure, it’s because Glendora Family Dentistry is one of the few dental clinics in the area that offers it. Many patients look confused and ask, “What is a Snap-On Smile?” when Dr. Desai first brings up this option. This simple cosmetic enhancement enables you to improve the aesthetics of your smile with artificial teeth that fit naturally over your existing teeth.
The Process of Getting a Snap-On Smile at Our Clinic
If you decide that a Snap-On Smile is right for you, the first thing to do is choose the shade and style of your new replacement teeth. The next step is for Dr. Desai to take a customized impression of your teeth. After these two steps are complete, he works with our dental laboratory to ensure that your replacement teeth look exactly how you want them to look. Approximately three weeks later, our office will contact you to come in for a final fitting. The visits are short and painless with no drilling required.
As the name suggests, your Snap-On Smile fits right over your top and bottom rows of teeth. You can even leave them on when you’re eating. Some people use them as a temporary cosmetic enhancement until they are able to afford another procedure while others are content to wear their Snap-On Smile indefinitely. Our staff will be happy to go over your options as well as show you how your smile might look with this simple cosmetic dentistry solution.
