Everyone wants to have a perfect smile. Studies indicate that having a perfect smile has an impact on an individual’s quality of life. People with a perfect smile tend to be more confident, have a better job, boldly tackle challenges, and tend to have more active social lives than the individuals who can’t get over the imperfections in their smile.

The fact that technology exists to correct a flawed smile and make it movie star perfect, some people find the choices limiting. The biggest reason that some people hesitate when it comes to the use of veneers, the most common form of correcting their smile has to do with the price. Getting porcelain veneers can be really expensive, especially if several veneers will be needed. Insurance companies consider dental veneers to be a strictly cosmetic procedure and will not cover the cost.

In recent years, a great deal of buzz has been created about the snap-on–smile. It’s possible that this could be just the thing that allows everyone, including people with a low income.

When a person approaches their dentist about a snap-on-smile, they will be getting a set of fake teeth. Unlike dentures, these fake teeth have been designed in such a way, that the entire row of teeth can be fitted over the person’s natural teeth. Once the snap-on-smile has been fitted, the patient will have a lovely smile.

Whitening procedures can make a smile look younger, but the bleaching won’t hide the teeth  that never straightened, or teeth that have been chipped. Some stains won’t disappear, even after the teeth have been whitened. The snap-on-smile provides the perfect solution.

One of the reasons that so many people have found that they prefer the snap-on-smile over dentures has to do with the size. Some people get dentures made, only to find that they seem to be oversized, an issue that can’t be easily corrected. This won’t happen with the snap-on-smile. The fake teeth have been designed to be very thin, and will look and feel completely natural.

Like dentures, the snap-on-smile will have to be made individually to suit the patient’s mouth. This will require that a mold be made of the teeth. A dental lab will use this mold to ensure that the snap-on-smile they make will perfectly fit over the patient’s teeth.  The process of making the mold will only take a few minutes. The length of time it takes to make the actual snap-on-smile depends on the dental lab, and how long a waiting list they have.

Dental patients should be wary of dentists that seem to be offering a really good deal on the price of the snap-on-smile. This discounted smile’s tend to be low quality and don’t look natural and will have to be redone after a year of two.
