Snap-on or detachable teeth work like porcelain veneers and removable dentures. They can help mask unsightly, crooked and stained teeth. They’re also quick and easy to wear, with the prosthesis literally snapping on to the teeth and the palate in a matter of seconds.
Getting snap-ons takes only two trips to dentist. On the first trip, the dentist examines your teeth and make impressions of them. These impressions are sent to a laboratory that creates the custom prosthesis. On the second and final visit, the dentist fits the snap-on teeth.
The main advantage of snap on teeth is that, unlike veneers or dentures, you won’t need to have your natural teeth filed down or extracted. It doesn’t require any kind of invasive procedure, making it painless and risk-free. Snap-on teeth can give you the same dramatic results produced by veneers and removable dentures.
Snap-on teeth are very convenient–you can remove them whenever you want. Wear them to an upcoming business presentation, job interview or meeting with an important client, and take them off after. Snap on teeth can also help boost your confidence by making you feel more confident about yourself, especially if your natural teeth makes you self-conscious.
Snap-on teeth are also great if you’re getting your picture taken: modeling gigs, bridal photo shoots, beauty pageants and other important occasions where you’d want to look as polished as possible. Removable teeth are also low maintenance—use a soft-bristled toothbrush and mild toothpaste, mild soap or special denture cleaners to clean your snap-ons.
Snap on teeth are perfect if you want to change the appearance of your smile without doing anything drastic to your natural teeth. It’s also a good alternative to expensive porcelain veneers.
