After all, what has become the “norm” for our standards of beauty has been implemented throughout the entire entertainment industry for many years.  So what about the regular, down to earth  people that do not make millions upon millions of dollars each year? How do they reach the standards that have been set by Hollywood? Fear not reader, for I have a solution for you.

How long does the procedure take and how long will the  Snap-On smile last?

The Snap-On Smile can last from two to three years. The procedure itself is not overly- time consuming. During your first brief appointment, the dentist will determine if you are a candidate and, if you are they will make an impression of your existing teeth. In a few weeks, your new Snap-On Smile will be ready, and you go for your second brief dentist appointment. You simply pop it in after a few minor adjustments that the dentist will make and you can wear it home.

Does the Snap-On Smile procedure hurt?

The Snap-On Smile procedure is completely painless. It requires no shots, drilling, and no removal of your natural teeth.

Will the Snap-On Smile affect my speech?

There will be a temporary adjustment period as you get used to having something new in your mouth. This is very common, and most people report that their speech is back to normal within 2 weeks. Wearing the Snap-On Smile all day will allow you to return to your normal speech much quicker.

Will Snap-On Smile stain?

Snap-On Smile does not stain easily, but just like your natural teeth, certain products such as coffee, wine or soda can cause staining. Your Snap-On Smile comes with a cleaning kit to help you maintain its wonderful appearance.
