Am I a Good Candidate for Snap-On Smile?

One-third of American adults wish they could change something about their smile. With the myriad of dentistry services available in 2021, why are so many people still walking around unhappy with the way their smile looks?

In many cases, it’s because they don’t have the time to deal with a major dental procedure. An understandable fear of the discomfort that comes with many dental treatments presents another obstacle to smile improvement.  

But you don’t have to choose between a lackluster smile and an invasive procedure. At our office in Downtown, Los Angeles, Silva A. Arejian, DDS, offers Snap-On Smile® as part of our cosmetic dentistry service portfolio. 

The Snap-On Smile is exactly what it sounds like: a smile you snap into place to beautify your teeth. Snap-On Smiles are custom-made to fit comfortably over your teeth. They’re so thin you can talk normally in them, but so strong that you can eat in them, too. 

Are you a candidate for a Snap-On Smile? Here are a few indicators that the answer is yes. 

You have a smile issue you want to correct

A Snap-On Smile functions similarly to veneers in that it covers over your teeth as they are now, giving you a way to hide a broad range of cosmetic flaws. That makes them a fit for people who are looking to fix:

In other words, if there’s something that’s bothering you about your smile, don’t hesitate to talk to Dr. Arejian to see if a Snap-On Smile is your best option. 

You’re not a candidate for a bridge or implant

You don’t want to walk around with a gap in your smile. But if your teeth or jawbone aren’t strong enough to support a replacement tooth, bridges and implants might not be on the table for you.

Don’t worry. With a Snap-On Smile, Dr. Arejian gives you an ultra easy way to give yourself the appearance of a full set of teeth. 

You want a convenient smile transformation

As we’ve mentioned before, veneers work similarly to a Snap-On Smile, hiding tooth problems. Veneers are extremely effective, but they require that your tooth be prepared for the veneer first. That makes this cosmetic dentistry option more invasive and expensive.

A Snap-On Smile, on the other hand, doesn’t require any changes to your existing teeth. Instead, Dr. Arejian takes a mold of your teeth exactly as they are. Using that mold, your Snap-On Smile gets created. Once it’s ready, you return to our office to ensure it fits comfortably and you can be on your way with a newly beautified smile right afterward. 

All told, a Snap-On Smile is one of the most convenient, versatile ways to improve the appearance of your smile. To find out if you’re a candidate, call our office or schedule your appointment with Dr. Arejian online today.
