Have you been considering improving your smile, but don’t have the time or money to deal with it at the moment? Dr. Ira Goldberg of Morris County Dental Associates has been providing Succasunna & Randolph with a service known as Snap-On-Smile for years. They are removable plastic teeth customized to your mouth, and when in place, you can’t tell they aren’t your own! Veneers and the Snap On Smile have helped many patients achieve their smile makeovers in just two appointments!
Snap on Smile Before and After
Take a look at the photos of this Snap On Smile presented here. This person came to us asking to improve both her smile and bite with veneers. However, she was going on vacation and wanted to do something temporarily. In two appointments, Dr. Ira Goldberg of Morris County Dental Associates was able to provide her with what you see here with the Snap On Smile. She loves these instant veneers!
The Snap-On-Smile is made of a resin (plastic) that is thin, flexible, and comfortable. It fits over your own teeth, like a mouthguard or whitening tray. It can correct or eliminate:
- and missing teeth.
Without a doubt, it can be life-changing. Dr. Goldberg has made these appliances for people for so many reasons:
- their wedding,
- job interviews,
- evaluate a smile makeover before actually performing the work, and
- modeling shoots.
One question people ask regularly is if the Snap On Smile with affect speech, since it fits over your own teeth. Some people require a short adjustment period to get used to having something new in their mouth. Within 2 weeks, most people adjust without a problem.
Another common question regarding the Snap On Smile revolves around staining. The Snap On Smile is quite stain resistant, but over time, it can darken from certain foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, wine, and soda. The appliance comes with a cleaning kit, which does a great job for maintenance.
So who isn’t a candidate for Snap On Smile? The biggest disqualifications are periodontal (gum) disease and decay. If you have gum disease or multiple cavities, these issues need to be addressed first.
Cost is also a question Dr. Goldberg and his staff hear often. There are two versions of the appliance: a “full arch” and a “partial arch.” The full arch spans all of the teeth in an arch (upper jaw or lower jaw), and is the most commonly requested appliance. It cost about the same as one crown.
