What is Snap-On Smile?

Snap-On Smile is a cosmetic removable customized arch that is fitted on the teeth of patients who want an instant smile makeover to quickly improve the appearance of their smile. It is usually cheaper than other options. Some dentists also place Snap-On Smile as a temporary smile for patients who are waiting for crowns, veneers or implant restorations to be placed on their teeth. It also serves as an attractive mouth guard to prevent teeth grinding. It takes three weeks to make a Snap-On Smile.

How is the Snap-On Smile procedure performed?

Patients are asked to choose the style and shade of the smile they want on the first visit. The dentist then takes an impression. A thin strong arch is made using resin.  Once the arch is ready, the dentist fits the arch on the existing teeth of the patient.      

How long will Snap-On Smile last?

Snap-On Smile has a limited warranty for a year. It lasts for a year if worn every day. If the patient wears snap on smile only for special occasions it can last from three to five years.

Is fitting Snap-On Smile painful?

Snap-On Smile is fitted over the natural teeth of patients. No preparation or drilling is required and it is a pain free procedure. Patients need to get used to their snap on smile and may have difficulty speaking or eating for a few days.  

Can I travel by air after fitting Snap-On Smile?

Patients can travel by air after fitting a Snap-On Smile. It is a removable dental device and if patients feel uncomfortable, they can remove the arch and wear it after the end of their journey.

087 550 5466 Intercare Medical and Dental Centre, 43 Old Oak Road, Tyger Valley, 7536
Rating from 20 Reviews I can not believe how brilliant Dr Hartshorne isLelethu, South Africa, 01 Dec 16

I went to him for just a consultation and in just 2 days I had already started treatment. I was a bit shy and embarrassed because the work that needed to be done on my teeth was extensive but both him and his team made me feel so calm and comfortable. I am so happy I went to him, he is very knowledgeable and gave me the most information than I ever got on my teeth. Most importantly he is kind. I would recommend him to anyone.

Providing such a wonderful serviceShalom, South Africa, 28 Feb 17

Rating from 2 Reviews The clinic was amazing when it comes to service, efficiency and appearanceLerato, South Africa, 26 May 17

I was fortunate enough to have access to quality staff and practitioners that went out of their way to make the experience of going to see a dentist more comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised at how efficient the staff was and how dedicated they were at making the experience of wisdom tooth extraction less intimidating. The clinic was amazing when it comes to service, efficiency, and appearance. The only problem I had was that the clinic was very expensive. Their prices were quite high including a consultation that went over R800.00

I received a speedy responseLetlhogonolo, South Africa, 18 Aug 17
