What are Snap-In Teeth?

When you look in the mirror, are you happy with your smile? Do you wish you had straighter, whiter teeth to show off to the world? Well, the best way to revive your smile is with cosmetic dentistry! However, we understand that the idea of making a permanent adjustment to your teeth can be a bit scary.

Luckily, there is a treatment that allows you to essentially try out what it would be like to have a more permanently restored smile without altering your current set of chompers.

Enter: Snap-in teeth.

What are Snap-In Teeth?

Snap-in teeth are removable fixtures that are made of a thin but strong layer of resin. Like the name alludes, they “snap” in over your current teeth to give the appearance of straighter, whiter teeth. They are a bit similar to veneers, except they are not permanent.

How Long Do Snap-In Teeth Last?

As long as you take care of your snap-in’s, they should last you several years, the same way partial dentures would.

How Do I Get Snap-In Teeth?

Once you and your dentist decide snap-in teeth are the right move for you, he or she will take impression molds of your teeth in order to determine the shape of snap-in’s you’ll need. You’ll also discuss the shade of snap-in’s that will give you the most natural appearance.

When your fixtures arrive from the manufacturer, your dentist will fit them over your teeth in order to ensure they fit properly (and that you like them!). During the last part of your visit, your dentist will also discuss the best way to clean and care for your snap-in’s.

How Much Care Do Snap-In Teeth Require?

Snap-in teeth are relatively easy to care for, usually only requiring a 15-minute daily soak in a dentist supplied cleaning solution. It’s also important to place a drop of the solution into the grooves of the fixture before placing onto your teeth.

It’s important to note that your snap-in teeth need to be cleaned with a special solution from your dentist. If you try cleaning them with toothpaste or store-bought solutions, you could damage the fixture.

What are the Benefits of Snap-In Teeth?

  • Snap-in’s give you the opportunity to see what your teeth will look like with more permanent cosmetic treatments.
  • Snap-in teeth allow you to keep your current teeth as they are.
  • Snap-in teeth also are safe to wear while eating sticky or chewy foods, so there’s no need to modify your diet if you decide to get them.
