How much does Snap-On Smile cost?

The cost of Snap-On Smile, according to the research we did online, would greatly depend on the dentist you hire, the shape, size as well as the style of your teeth.  Priced “per arch,” be prepared to spend anywhere from $1,000 to more than $1,500 in a higher cost of living area.  Like any dental procedure, the costs can greatly vary between dentists, even while performing the same procedure, so it’s always best to make sure you do your due diligence while looking for a good price and reputable dentist.  As it’s often deemed a cosmetic procedure, most found their dental insurance company would not cover the procedure, but as always, it’s best to talk with your insurance company, if you have one, to know your limitations.

According to the reviews on RealSelf.com, 60% said the process was worth it, with the average price reported being around $975.

Atrium Dental, a dentist located in Phoenix, Arizona, noted the cost of a Snap-On Smile would cost about $1,200 for a single arch.

DDSSmiles.com notes the average price can run around $1,200 per arch, either the top or bottom or about $2,400 for both.  In some situations, the website advises, your dentist may use a quadrant instead of an arch.  Scrolling down, with more than 6,000 votes cast, the average reviewer gave it a “3” star rating.

The process

The entire process, according to the company, allows you pick the style and shade of your teeth before the impressions are even made.

Once you confirm your selection, your dentist will then want to determine if you are a candidate for the procedure.  If so, your dentist will take an impression and ask you to schedule an appointment for a later date, about three to four weeks later, when the mold is complete.  The entire process will require two visits and no drilling or anesthetic will be required.

The Snap-On Smile, when worn, is about 0.5mm thick, making it a bit bulkier than your natural teeth, and because of this, people, at first, recommend waiting a few days before getting used to it while eating and talking.  To use it, as the name implies, simply “snaps” into your teeth.  As you use your hands to insert it, you will rock it back and forth lightly until it snaps into the natural formation of your mouth.  To remove, you will rock it back and forth lightly with both hands to avoid damage.

From start to finish, plan on it taking close to three to four weeks to receive your new set of “Snap-On” teeth.

Advantages

When compared to implants and veneers, they are much less

There’s no drilling, no injections or pain as the smile simply snaps into your mouth

With it in, you can eat and drink as you normally would

Disadvantages

Should only be viewed as a temporary option as it will not last forever nor will it fix crooked teeth

It needs to be removed before bed or when going to sleep

If you fail to read the directions, they are known to break, especially if inserted or removed incorrectly

You will need to use special cleaners, only available via your dentist, to keep them cleaned and warranty eligible

Tips to know

Your Snap-On Smile should be taken out every night and cleaned every day with a bacterial gel and prescribed cleaner for about 15 minutes every night — a product only available from your dentist for about $25 per six-ounce container.  As long as it’s taken care of properly, reports note they can last up to five years.

This temporary set of teeth is not designed to fix any underlying dental problems; it is only designed to help hide any cosmetic imperfections.

It is not recommended for people who do clench their teeth as they can fracture or break easily.  A dentist will also not recommend it for those who have severe periodontal disease or protruding front teeth as the Snap-On Smile cannot hide protruded teeth.

A dentist who offers the Snap-On Smile system must have a Snap-On-approved lab located inside of their office.  You can use the official search tool to find a dentist in your area who is able to offer it.  This means you will not be able to order online or from an unauthorized retailer.

The product comes with a one-year warranty on all materials and workmanship but will not cover damage due to user error such as improper insertion, poor hygiene or failing to follow instructions.  Customers are also able to purchase an extended warranty for up to three years to cover the device.
