A Snap-On Smile® is a patented dental appliance manufactured by DenMat, a California-based dental materials company. It gives patients a beautiful set of white teeth without the cost or commitment of permanent dental procedures. You wear it over your teeth and take it out when you want.

Snap-On Smile – Customized for each patient
Each applicance is customized for the individual patient. You can wear it all day, every day, removing it at night and for cleaning your teeth. You can even eat while wearing the it. However, Dr. Szarek recommends that you begin with smaller, softer foods and work up to eating harder foods while wearing the appliance.
Getting a Snap-On Smile
After an initial consultation, Dr. Szarek will make an upper and lower impression of your teeth. Then, he will work with you to choose the appropriate color and shape. This information will then be sent to the laboratory that will make your appliance. In most cases, the new appliance will be ready within two weeks.
If the appliance is worn casually and as a temporary smile makover, as it is intended, it can last up to five years.
