Ever hear of snap on smile?

08/26/2010

Question:

Have you heard of snap on smile? Do you believe it is a good alternate to those who cannot afford braces? I was wondering if this snap on smile is something that people use as a long term solution to their crooked smile?

Do you know what the cost is?

Answer:

I don't know.. If you are thinking of orthodontics, be sure to find a specialist in Orthodontics - one whose education requirements are determined by the American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists who supervise accreditation of Orthodontics specialty training. It is two to three years additional education after Dental School. The American Association of Orthodontist located on Lindberg Rd in St. Louis can supply you with the names of specialists in your area. Remember also that the straightening of teeth requires straightening the entire tooth to the correct position.
