Dr. Paulen is pleased to offer patients Snap-On Smile: an affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, expensive orthodontic treatment for crooked or misaligned teeth, and other cosmetic concerns.
Snap-On Smile can be completed in a couple of visits to our Sandy Springs dentist office, where Dr. Paulen will take impressions of your teeth to create your new, custom smile. In 2-3 weeks, your Snap-On Smile will be ready.
This treatment option can be perfect for patients who suffer from dental anxiety due to the noninvasive nature of the procedure: NO anesthesia, drilling, or discomfort from start to finish.
Getting Snap-On Smile in Sandy Springs, GA
Snap-On Smile uses a process called dental lamination to create a restoration to enhance the look of your smile. It’s a flexible resin material that covers your existing teeth — including restorations like dental crowns or bonding material. The resin is molded perfectly to the shape of your smile, matching the exact contours of your mouth so that it looks natural. It’s a durable material that lasts up to five years to completely transform your smile.
The Snap-On Smile process is simple and similar to the process for getting porcelain veneers. We use a special material to take impressions of your smile to send to a dental lab. The lab custom-makes the restoration to fit your smile perfectly. When it’s done, we’ll fit it to your smile in our office, ensuring it fits comfortably. Once you’re satisfied and any mild adjustments are made, we use bonding material to secure the restoration to your smile.
Snap-On Smile can treat a variety of dental imperfections in your smile. Instead of only restoring certain specific teeth individually, this restoration becomes your entire smile. It can care for things like broken or cracked teeth, discolored teeth, missing teeth, gaps in your smile, or certain bite appearance issues. The restoration goes completely over a full arch of your teeth. It can still be used if you’re also missing a few teeth.
The Benefits of Snap-On Smile
People choose Snap-On Smile for a variety of different benefits. One of the main ones is that it’s a cost-effective restoration. You can get a complete smile makeover for a fraction of the cost of other cosmetic dental fixes. Things like braces and porcelain veneers can add up to thousands of dollars. Snap-On Smile is a much more affordable option.
Snap-On Smile is a flexible restoration, too, in that it can be reversed or removed. If you decide to return to your natural teeth, you can do so at any time. You can even go back and forth between the two. The process of removing and putting on the restoration can be done in just a few minutes at the dentist office. They’re non-invasive, so you don’t have to worry about anesthesia or anything else involved in extensive procedures.
This product takes care of various cosmetic issues with your teeth. Because it’s all one piece, it’s an easy way to make over an entire arch of teeth instead of on an individual basis. Snap-On Smile is comfortable for you to wear all the time, and it looks and feels natural in your mouth. It’s designed to stand up to the wear and tear of everyday use and is durable to last years at a time.
Each patient can choose the color and other specifics of the restoration so that they’re confident in their smile. We want this to be a natural look for you that you’re proud to show off. It’s a quick and easy way to restore confidence in your smile, improving your overall morale and outlook on life.
