Do you want to have a smile that gives you that “wow” factor when you show your pearly whites? At Something To Smile About, our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kevin Boulard, can fit you for a Snap-On Smile on your lower and/or upper arches. A Snap-On-Smile is a convenient way to avoid a lot of time in the dental chair for cosmetic purposes. Dr. Boulard can take your smile to the next level in two easy steps. There will be no structural change to your natural teeth. This means no numbing injections or grinding on your teeth.

This is a simple dental appliance that you can essentially snap onto your upper and/or lower arch. It is made of durable, yet aesthetically pleasing dental resin. Your teeth do need to be healthy — all surface stains, an uneven tooth line, and other cosmetic flaws can be concealed. The Snap-On Smile appliance may be used as a long-term or short-term solution for your teeth. Dr. Boulard welcomes all patients (new and current) to contact Something To Smile About regarding our Snap-On-Smile options.


The Snap-On Smile appliance is a fantastic option for anyone who wishes to improve their smile but is not prepared to commit to the time and cost of a full smile makeover. It can be a speedy solution to hide crooked teeth, stains, gaps, or lost teeth. If you are not a candidate for a bridge or implants, you might still be able to have a Snap-On Smile. In some cases, a Snap-On Smile may replace a partial denture to offer a more comfortable and removable result.


The staff at Something To Smile About offers you an affordable oral upgrade with a Snap-On Smile. One of the benefits of this cosmetic dental procedure is its affordability. This option also varies in cost, depending on if you need a full or partial arch. This procedure isn’t covered by insurance, so plan to spend between $1,000 and $3,500 per arch. Snap-On Smile is non-invasive and doesn’t require any removal of your tooth’s natural enamel. It sits on top of your real teeth without damaging the tooth or surrounding gums. The results are instant, and there is no need for an anesthetic.


At your initial consultation with Dr. Boulard, he will be able to determine if a Snap-On Smile is the right option to meet your goals. When it is selected as your treatment, we will designate a matching shade and design to make your Snap-On Smile appliance. Dr. Boulard will take iTero® digital impressions for your Snap-On-Smile to be created. Your customized Snap-On Smile will be manufactured in an accredited dental laboratory that may take 2 – 3 weeks.


Following the creation of your Snap-On-Smile, we’ll schedule an appointment at Something To Smile About to check the fit. Once Dr. Boulard adjusts the appliance for a correct fit, you’ll have the ability to wear your brand new, beautiful smile home. You’ll be given a special cleaning solution to help you care for your appliance. Dr. Boulard will also offer further aftercare directions to help you properly care for your Snap-On Smile.


Does a Snap-On Smile look natural?

Yes, it does. The Snap-On Smile appliance looks like naturally white, healthy teeth.

Can you eat while wearing a Snap-On Smile?

Yes, you can eat while wearing your Snap-On Smile. The type of advanced dental resin that a Snap-On-Smile appliance is made from is very strong and durable and won’t be damaged by most foods.

How long does a Snap-On Smile appliance last?

Most patients with a Snap-On Smile can expect their appliance to last between 3 – 5 years with regular use.

Are snap-on veneers safe for your teeth?

As long as you regularly clean your veneers and practice good oral hygiene with brushing and flossing, snap-on veneers don’t pose any added risks to your oral health. Snap-on veneers may not be recommended if you have oral health issues such as cavities, gum disease, or severely misaligned teeth. During your consultation with Dr. Boulard, he will check the health of your teeth to ensure a Snap-On Smile is right for you.


A Snap-On Smile may be a great alternative if you would like to cover up imperfections to have a more beautiful smile.
