Non-Invasive Snap-On Smile® Appliances

added on: January 10, 2012

Jackson Creek Dental Group is now offering a new service to patients that transforms smiles in just two short appointments; it’s called a Snap-On Smile appliance. Snap-On Smile is an ideal solution for people of all ages who are looking for a non-invasive, reversible, affordable approach to restorative and cosmetic dentistry. This life-changing appliance snaps right over a patient’s natural teeth: no drilling, no injections, no change in tooth structure, and it’s removable. It’s an easy and quick solution for patients who want to feel better, look better, and function better, or need a new smile in a hurry for a wedding, reunion or other event.

“Snap-On Smile is an excellent choice for people who have chips, gaps, crooked, stained or missing teeth,” said Ron Ask, DDS at Jackson Creek Dental Group. “It is great for patients who want to have a beautiful, confidence building smile but can’t commit to more involved restorative treatment for medical or anxiety reasons. It is also available to those who may have current budget limitations and are looking for short term affordable solutions that will allow them to proceed down the road with more extensive restorative dentistry at their own financial pace.”

Snap-On Smile may also be used as an orthodontic appliance for certain procedures, as a nightguard, a replacement for missing front teeth, and could even be used for bleaching trays. Patients with teeth worn down from grinding or have a “gummy smile” may also be helped with this appliance. Or maybe you’re having dental implants placed and need something to give you a beautiful smile while you wait for the implants to heal.

Dr. Ask stated that this appliance should be regarded as a “stepping stone” to more permanent treatment like porcelain veneers which are superior in terms of strength and other tooth-like qualities, if after wearing your Snap-On Smile you decide to permanently change your smile. Also, your natural teeth should be free of decay or other significant defects of disease before an appliance is made.

“This new customized restorative appliance is transforming lives and changing smiles,” stated Leon Roda III, DDS at Jackson Creek Dental Group. “We work with the patient to pick the correct style and shade of the new smile, take impressions of the teeth, and then bring them back in two to three weeks later for a final fitting. They can walk out of our office with a new found confidence, greater self-esteem and an awesome new smile.”

Snap-On Smile appliances are made of a crystallized type of resin called “Acetyl Resin”, which allows the appliance to be made as thin as 0.5mm without compromising strength. It is durable and non-staining. This material is also used in heart valve replacement and other applications in dentistry. NASA uses it as well within their aircraft cabinetry for its durability.

Patients can immediately eat and drink with Snap-On Smile, and it requires minimum maintenance. It should not be worn at night unless the dentist instructs the patient to use it as a night brux guard or orthodontic retainer, and should also be removed and rinsed after each meal and thoroughly cleaned daily.

Jackson Creek Dental Group offers a full range of advanced, comprehensive dental specialties, from general care, periodontal care and orthodontics to cosmetic dentistry, smile design and full mouth reconstruction.
