Snap on Smile Device
An Affordable, Convenient Cosmetic Solution
The Crème de la Crème in cosmetic dentistry is certainly customized and individually fabricated porcelain veneer. They are also permanently cemented on your natural teeth and looks absolutely beautiful, and natural.
Dr. Joseph Goodman D.D.S., D.M.D. specializes in the creating of the most stunning and natural looking smile, with porcelain Veneers. For those patients who are not able to commit to high quality Veneers, another option is available:
Snap-On Smile® an esthetic/cosmetic appliance by Den Mat is an affordable, convenient treatment that provides dramatic improvement. We are happy to offer the Snap-On Smile at our Beverly Hills Cosmetic Practice. This dental appliance is non-invasive and removable and can be placed over the existing teeth. There are absolutely no shots and no drilling of any kind required, so the procedure is fast and easy. It only requires a high precession impression of the patient’s teeth and a 2-3 week wait time. (Rush cases available upon request.)
Snap-On Smile® - An Attractive Alternative to Fixed Prosthetics
The Snap-On Smile® dental prosthetic can be placed over both the upper and lower teeth to mask your imperfections, including chipped tooth, discolorations, cracks, gaps or even one or more missing teeth. The Snap-On Smile® can be removed for oral hygiene care and sleeping. Unlike veneers, they are permanently placed over the exterior surface of teeth to serve as a façade. Snap-On Smile® is not permanently or temporarily secured with any cements or adhesives, meaning it snaps in and holds well in place.
Manufactured from a proprietary formula of lightweight, high strength dental resin, Snap-On Smile® is both durable and attractive. You can eat and drink with your Snap-On Smile® in place and with proper care, the cosmetic device can last from 3-5 years. Perhaps most importantly, Snap-On Smile® is comfortable. You can wear it day in and day out without fear of it causing discomfort or hassle. With Snap-On Smile®, you can regain your smile's youthful shine and luster, and smile with confidence!
In other offices all cases are sent to one Lab called Dent Mat, the maker of Lumineers. The appliance is then fabricated and returned to the dentist, who will then schedule the patient and present the appliance. But unlike any other office, we at Beverly Hills Plaza of Cosmetic Dentistry have our own experienced and professional master lab technician who will individually customize and beautify it. Each appliance should fit the person face, style and facial contours and therefore meticulous attention is given to every detail, not only by Dent Mat, the manufacturer but also our own lab technician.
Advantages of Snap-On Smile®
Cost effective. All upper 14 teeth can be done for the same price. Nearly anyone can benefit from Snap-On Smile®. This treatment option is particularly beneficial for individuals who are seeking a more affordable or more convenient solution to other, more comprehensive restorative and cosmetic dental treatments. Gaps, chips, cracks, and stains can be masked and corrected. Individuals whose needs don't merit dental crowns or bridges or the very elderly who are not able to sit for hours long dental appointments. Actors are able to change their smile remove the appliance after shootings. All imperfections will be masked
Disadvantages of Snap-On Smile®
Should you have extremely crooked and overlapping teeth, the Snap on Smile will not have the desired outcome.
Should you have protruded teeth, extremely long and large teeth, Snap on Smile might also not be suitable as the appliance will cover your existing teeth and make them even longer and larger.
Patients with unusually large gaps may not be good candidates because the Snap on Smile will close the gap but might make the teeth appear unreal and wide. Braces, Retainers or Veneers might be more suitable.
