Do I Need To Replace My Snap On Smile Every Year?

I’ve been wearing a snap on smile since 2003. I bought top and bottom. The first set lasted 3 years and so did the 2nd and 3rd set. Within the past 5 years it seems that I’m replacing them every year to year and a half. This is beginning to get a bit expensive so I have to consider if I want to keep purchasing the snap on smile or if I need to consider some other treatment. Is it normal for the snap on smile to need to be replaced every year or so? Is the quality going down on them? Samuel

Samuel – The more you wear a Snap-On Smile the faster it will break down. You can wear it all day, and you can eat and drink while wearing it, but if you do, the appliance will wear out quickly.

A Snap-On Smile is designed to be a temporary means of replacing your teeth. People wear it while waiting for dental crowns or dental implants. Some people wear the smile for special photo sessions or special events. If you wear a Snap-On smile 24/7, the appliance can wear out or crack. It just isn’t designed for daily use.

Depending on the cosmetic issues with your teeth, you might want to consider other options. Although they might cost more than a Snap-On Smile, in the long term, it will pay off.

Maintain Good Oral Hygiene with a Snap-On Smile

Also remember to be diligent about maintaining good oral hygiene. If the Snap-On smile is worn delay, bacteria and decay can easily build up on your teeth. We’re not trying to talk you out of getting a new Snap-On Smile, but you should know what to expect from the appliance and what alternatives can give you longer-lasting results.
