We have seen cosmetic dentistry make a huge difference in the lives of our patients in and around Albuquerque, NM.
When people feel good about their smiles, they smile more often and more easily. When people are comfortable with the appearance of their teeth, they feel comfortable talking to people. That can affect their careers, their personal lives, and, in a few instances, their romantic lives as well.
We also know something else about cosmetic dentistry. It is a big decision. Depending on what you need or want done and what service you may need, it can be costly as well.
These are things we understand at Uptown Dental Associates. It’s also why we want you to know about Snap-On Smile. This is a cosmetic service that can help with a wide range of problems, and there are two ways it could help you.

Snap-On Smile As A Temporary Solution
As we noted above, getting cosmetic dentistry is not always an easy decision. Having a temporary fix could give you the opportunity to see what your smile could look like. It also can give you a cost-effective way to improve your smile until you are ready for a long-term solution.
Snap-On Smile is like a specially designed cover that slips over your teeth. This can transform your smile so it looks like you want it to look.
If you have teeth that are dark or discolored, Snap-On Smile can make your smile as white and bright as you want it to be. If you have gaps between two or more of your teeth, Snap-On Smile can make your teeth look evenly spaced.
Snap-On Smile also can make crooked or crowded teeth look perfectly straight. It can give you the appearance of whole teeth again, too, if you have chipped, broken, cracked, or worn-down teeth.
If you compared the benefits of Snap-On Smile, you will see they can be used to fix pretty much all the same problems as dental veneers, but at a lower cost. And seeing how your teeth look with Snap-On Smile can help you decide if you want to invest in veneers, orthodontic care such as Invisalign®, or a combination of services for a smile makeover.
Snap-On Smile As A Long-Term Solution
For some patients, Snap-On Smile becomes their long-term solution.
Many people have concerns about pain or about making a permanent change to their teeth. With Snap-On Smile, you can improve your smile in the most pain-free way possible. It does not require removing enamel like porcelain veneers. It does not put pressure on your teeth like orthodontic treatment, and it does not require reshaping your teeth.
With Snap-On Smile, we simply make an impression of your teeth. Your Snap-On Smile is custom-molded to fit over your teeth and to make the changes that you want to see.
When your Snap-On Smile is ready, we will show you how to put it on and take it off as you see fit. Each cover can last for a few years if cared for correctly. Some patients like this so much, they choose to continue replacing their covers instead.
If this is what you decide, we can help you get replacements as needed.
Some Things To Know About Snap-On Smile
Getting Snap-On Smile takes a couple weeks and a couple visits to our office. Once you decide that you are interested in this treatment, we will make an impression of your teeth. When your cover is ready, you will return to receive it.
You can eat most foods and drinks while wearing your Snap-On Smile. The maker does recommend avoiding chewing gum and sticky foods, however.
Like veneers, Snap-On Smile is more resistant to staining than natural teeth. Even so, you should be aware that things such as coffee, tea, and wine can add gradual stains to your Snap-On Smile as well.
