During the past years, great innovations have been introduced in the world of dentistry. Before, if you wanted to get that Celebrity smile, it involved lots of anesthesia injections, drilling and fabrication of crowns and cementation or bonding of the crowns or veneers. Today, everything changes from exhausting procedure to just a snap with the revolutionary Snap-On-Smile.
What Snap-On Smile Really Is?
Dr. Marc Leichtung is the brain that gave birth to Snap-On-Smile. Snap-On is really made of semi-elastic resin that looks like a shell that snaps on your teeth. This cosmetic procedure requires no drilling on your teeth, and most especially, no discomfort or pain. You will be offered several shades of teeth to choose from; as well as your choice of what shape of teeth you want to have like square, round square, round, etc. Of course, your dentist will be there to guide you with the right color and shape that will look best for your complexion and facial contour. This affordable procedure is considered cosmetic dentistry which is just not permanent and it is very affordable.
Why were Snap-Ons created?
Dr. Leichtung confessed that his goal why he made the Snap-On Smile is not for the public to imitate how the Hollywood celebrity stars look. He made it because he wanted to give painless dental cosmetic procedure to his patients within a more affordable price. To have a smile makeover may cost around $20,000, and most people cannot afford to get that done. But snap-ons can run within $1,300 to $1,600 budget. There is a very huge difference between these new smile innovations with the conventional dental cosmetic procedures. He wanted to enhance the individual person’s look by giving them an improved smile, even though it just goes over their own teeth. Some people decide to go forward with veneers and crowns after having the snap-ons.
What are the advantages of Snap-On Smile over other dental cosmetic procedures?
Snap-On Smile has a lot to offer. It requires:
- No drilling.
- No adhesives and bondings.
- No pain.
- No expensive bills.
- No lengthy time on the dental seat.
- Can reverse back to original teeth.
It is also reversible. If you want to have your old teeth back, then you can with this technology. You will feel more confident with how your teeth look. It actually correct the imperfections of your teeth’s color, length and shape. Just like a dental crown, it covers your teeth perfectly revealing only the newly restored set. You can use this for a short period of time or for a lifetime. Sometimes, when patients are having dental implants done, Snap-On Smile is placed on the front teeth while waiting for it to heal.
Most people are judged wrongly because of how their teeth look. If you are concerned about your budget, you can find some ways to have that beautiful smile. Dental cosmetic procedures have innovations which are affordable for you. Thanks to Doctor Marc Leichtung who invented the Snap-On Smile where you can have the celebrity look you always wanted.
