Snap On Smiles: The Affordable Alternative to Veneers

Do you long for a bright, perfect-looking smile, but don’t want to shell out a small fortune for porcelain veneers? Many patients would choose veneers in a heartbeat—if they were less expensive. Veneers can cost up to $2000 per tooth. That’s a lot of dough, especially if you would like to transform your whole smile. Some of us simply have other things we are saving our money for: college funds for our children, a down payment on a home, or paying off a student loan, for example.

Luckily, cosmetic dentistry offers many flexible options for patients seeking aesthetic transformations. If you haven’t considered Snap On Smiles, now is your opportunity to learn about this lower-cost alternative to veneers.

What is a Snap On Smile?

This treatment can give similar results to porcelain veneers, without permanently altering your teeth. Unlike porcelain veneers, which adhere individually to each tooth, Snap on Smiles are a one-piece removable prosthetic that fits over your top and bottom teeth. These thin, tooth-shaped trays fit over your natural teeth and snap in and out of place. Snap-on veneers are created using an impression of your teeth, so they are guaranteed to fit like a glove and stay in place when you wear them. If you’ve ever worn Invisalign or a clear dental retainer, Snap On Smiles feel similar in your mouth and are equally stable.

Some of the benefits of Snap On Smiles:

  • They are removable.
  • They do not alter your teeth and are fully “reversible.”
  • They are more affordable than porcelain veneers.

How Long Do Snap On Smiles Last?

Officially, Snap on Smiles are meant to last about three to five years. This is about as long as other removable appliances are expected to last, such as mouth guards and bruxism guards.

Patient mileage with Snap On Smiles will vary, based on a few different factors. Are you planning on wearing them all the time—or only when you are socializing or meeting new people? How many hours of the day will you wear them? Will you eat most of your meals while wearing them, or only occasionally? Some patients report being able to wear the same set of Snap On Smiles for up to five years or more, while others wear through theirs in less than three years.

Who is a Good Candidate for Snap On Smiles?

Snap On Smiles are a great choice for patients who:

  • Have crooked teeth, or gaps
  • Have stained teeth
  • Are missing teeth
  • Cannot get a dental bridge or implants
  • Would like an alternative to partial dentures
  • Seek a more affordable alternative to veneers

Ultimately, anyone in a good state of oral health can be a candidate for this treatment. Having a healthy mouth should always be your first priority, of course. If you have dental issues, such as tooth decay or gum disease, it’s important get these issues under control before you consider cosmetic treatments.
