Multi-purpose restorative appliance

More than just a cosmetic solution, Snap-on-Smile is helpful in solving a wide variety of short- and long-term clinical challenges as both a non-invasive restorative option and a diagnostic appliance. Snap-On Smile is a removable full or partial arch that literally snaps right over the patient’s existing dentition without impinging on the gingival tissue or covering the palate. Entirely tooth-borne, no adhesives are required.  Patients are free to eat, drink and function normally without obstruction. Many dentists regard temporization as one of the most difficult aspects of full-mouth restoration. Snap-On Smile is not only an excellent provisional, it also provides patients exceptional esthetics. It can last for years, yet is affordable enough to be temporary. For patients who are hesitant to commit to more involved restoration treatments, Snap-On Smile offers the experience of living with better function and superior esthetics.

It is an excellent choice for:

  • Gaps, crooked, stained or missing teeth
  • Those who are not candidates for bridges or implants
  • Anyone who would like a Hollywood smile without the expense and discomfort of complex and invasive dental procedures
  • Anyone who has an old-fashioned removable partial denture and wants a beautiful, more comfortable alternative

Snap-On Indications

The turn-around time is approximately 9 days for Snap-iT (shade dependent) and 18 laboratory days for Snap On. Smile design can stem from a study model, a wax-up, smile imaging, a smile selection guide or photography. ROE can help with designing a smile using the links to the left of this page. Please submit your case to us for evaluation.
