Discussing the uses of the Snap on Smile for our patients from Sutton Coldfield.
In an ideal world, we would all have great looking teeth; teeth that remained white and even throughout our lives and without the tender loving care that we currently give them.
Unfortunately, reality is not like this and many of us have teeth that leave us less than satisfied with the way that we look.
Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry such as that offered at our dental clinic in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham means that anyone wishing to improve the appearance and function of their teeth, can do so.
There are a number of cosmetic dental procedures now available which can be used for whitening the teeth (teeth whitening procedures and dental veneers), straightening the teeth (adult orthodontics such as Invisalign and Social 6) and replacing lost teeth (dental implants). All of these procedures can make a really positive improvement in the appearance of a person’s smile.
Some patients though are reluctant to undertake these procedures. This can be for any number of personal reasons. Orthodontics, for example may perhaps not be ideal for someone who is extremely impatient as the procedure does take time to work.
Dental implants too can frighten those who suffer from severe dental anxiety. However it is worth noting here that we offer a sedation service at Arthur House Dental Care which helps even the most nervous patient to be totally relaxed during a dental procedure.
Snap On Smile
All is not lost for these people and the Snap on Smile is a simple and convenient method of improving the way that your teeth look. Of course, this will not actually correct the underlying problems but can, on the occasions when you wish to do so, provide a great smile by simply snapping a carefully manufactured appliance over your existing teeth.
After an initial consultation, we will take an impression of your teeth and discuss with you styles and colourings to ensure that this dental appliance is exactly as you want it. The impressions are then sent to a dental laboratory and you will be recalled once the Snap on Smile has been returned to us.
When we have checked its fitting, it can simply be taken home and used as you wish. Generally speaking, people tend not to wear them at home and prefer to use them when socialising. Preserving good oral hygiene is obviously very important and keeping your Snap on Smile and your teeth and gums clean will help prevent any problems.
In summary then, a Snap on Smile is a great and easy fix for anyone who does not want or is unsure about more permanent solutions such as dental veneers. In fact, many of our patients have used this revolutionary systems as a trial before going on to have veneers fitted.
