Snap in Teeth: What They are and Their Benefits?

If you want to get the perfect smile without going through drills and needles and the high price of permanent tooth enhancement, then snap-on teeth are what you need. Snap-on teeth are also a good option when you have missing, discolored, crooked, or chipped teeth.

What are snap-in teeth?

Snap-on veneers are a non-permanent option for dental veneers. Snap-on teeth clip on your natural teeth and don't need painful procedures. They are also an affordable option compared to braces. The snap-on teeth are created by taking a mold of your teeth and then they are customized to match the color and shape of your natural teeth. The dentist then forms snap-on teeth out of the resin material.

You can use snap-on teeth to fix issues related to stains, discoloration, and small gaps. They are a temporary option that will leave you with a brighter smile within a short time. You have to take care of your temporary veneers the same way you do with your natural teeth. You have to brush them regularly and soak them in water overnight. Snap-on teeth can last for about two years when you properly take care of them. If your snap-on teeth get damaged or worn out, your dentist will create a new pair. 

Are snap-in teeth bad for your teeth?

Snap-on teeth are safe to use. The materials used in making snap-on teeth do not lead to tooth decay. However, tooth decay can arise due to built-up food particles if you don't brush regularly. Make sure you clean your snap-on veneers properly.

Snap-in teeth vs traditional veneers

Snap-on teeth are similar to traditional veneers but only that it does not alter your teeth in any way. It only clips on your natural teeth and creates a flawless smile. The dentist takes impressions to determine the specification of your teeth.

After a few weeks, you'll receive your snap-on veneers. Traditional veneers are made of thin porcelain and match the shape of your teeth. They can last up to twenty years. Even though snap-on teeth are similar to traditional veneers, they are very different. Here are the differences.

  • Tooth altering: Traditional veneers require a portion of the tooth enamel being removed, while with snap-on teeth, no alteration of the natural teeth is done.
  • Flexibility: You can easily remove snap-on teeth but the traditional veneers are permanent and bonded to your tooth surface and cannot be removed.
  • Affordability: Traditional veneers will cost you thousands of dollars depending on the teeth covered. Snap-on teeth, on the other hand, are affordable.

Can you eat with snap-in teeth?

Yes, it is possible to eat with snap-in veneers. You can eat your favorite foods while having a snap-on smile. However, it can be difficult to chew certain foods. You can avoid food such as hard crunchy bagels, meats, nuts, and anything that will interfere with your snap-on smile. The snap-on teeth are made using strong resin material that makes it possible to chew the same way you would do with your natural teeth. You can enjoy most of your favorite foods without removing the temporary snap-on teeth. 

Avoid eating sticky food and chewing gum with your snap-on teeth. It is also advisable to avoid hard foods. Such foods will only cause damage to your snap-on teeth. Once you eat with your snap-on your teeth, make sure you remove them and brush them. Anything that gets trapped between your natural teeth and prosthetic can eat your enamel. Always brush and floss your teeth daily. As long as you avoid chewy and tough foods and take good care of your snap-on teeth, they will last you longer.
