Customer Question
Hello I recently came across...
Hello I recently came across snap on smile and was interested in this for my top teeth due to severe crowding but my only concern is that due to my crowding my lateral Incisor on my left side potrudes outward quite far. Will this make me not a candidate for snap on smile?

Snap on smiles are acrylic temporary cosmetic only pieces that will fit over your teeth.They are bulky,will change youre bite,cause TMJ problems and if you have an orthodontic problem like yours,it will only make the teeth stick out more.These are essentially rip off devices that are not made to last.All of your teeth will be joined together and your lip will be pushed out about 2 -3 mm.It looks great in the commercial but these devices not only will effect your bite and speech,but if left in will cause decay.Save your money and get your teeth fixed properly.If it sounds too good to be true..it usually isn't.That is the case with these temporary fixes for appearance.The materials used are brittle and not permanent.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
