Marietta Snap On Smile
Snap-On Smile has gotten much attention in the cosmetic dentistry area in the media. As the name implies, it is an appliance that literally snaps into place, giving you an instant appearance of a better smile. The Snap-On Smile appliance is made without any drilling or shots and is totally painless.
We use the Snap-On Smile appliance for several reasons. First, it can be used by patients who want to get an idea of what they will look like with a new smile, but before they move forward with permanent treatment. Second, it can be used by patients who really want a smile makeover, but can’t afford it right away. These patients can wear a Snap-On Smile appliance while they get their finances in order for more permanent restorations. Third, we use it for patients who have an important event or even a photo shoot which requires a beautiful smile. Fourth, they can be used during the waiting period when an implant has been placed but not restored with a crown yet. And last, we use it for film and theatrical work to change an actor’s smile temporarily during the production.

Snap-On Smile is not a permanent smile improvement, but is instead, a temporary fix. The appliance is made out of plastic that snaps onto your teeth. It is made in a professional dental lab and is typically quite comfortable. However, because it is held in place by fitting over your existing teeth, it is slightly thicker than your existing teeth, which often causes the patient to have to adjust their speech slightly. This is seldom an issue for patients and it usually only takes a few hours to become used to the appliance.
The appliances last from a month to several months, depending on how much you wear them and how well you take care of them. Gilreath Dental Associates recommends that you continue to have your teeth cleaned and normal checkups with your dentist. And we also recommend that you do not sleep in your appliance.

To have a Snap-On Smile appliance made, we start with simple impressions of your mouth. Next, we take a few records and decide on the color you want for your teeth. We send these records to our lab and the appliance is fabricated and returned to us in about 2 to 3 weeks. For those who are in a rush, we can expedite the case for an additional fee and have it returned in less than 5 days.
