Looking for an affordable, quick, and stunning smile makeover? It’s time to explore the transformative power of a “snap-on smile”. Located in the heart of Los Angeles, Dr. Anthony Mobasser, a world-renowned cosmetic dentist, offers this innovative solution to patients wanting an immediate, radiant smile.
A snap-on smile is an easily removable appliance that slides over your existing teeth. It’s an incredible solution for those wishing to modify the color or shape of their teeth. Imagine walking into our dental office in LA and walking out with an entirely new smile!
The patient presented with missing teeth, a collapsed bite, and insufficient space for tooth placement. Their desire was to achieve a bright, aesthetically pleasing smile.
To address these concerns, we opened the collapsed bite and crafted transitional veneers for both the upper and lower arches. This was done to assess whether the patient could comfortably adjust to the opened bite and to alleviate TMJ symptoms caused by the shifted teeth.
The final outcome was outstanding: the patient was ecstatic and expressed profound appreciation.
The PROS of a Snap-On Smile:
We’ve listed a few pros and cons of this revolutionary dental procedure to help you make an informed decision.
- It’s painless! There’s no anesthetic or drilling involved.
- It’s reversible. If you decide it’s not for you, simply stop wearing it.
- It serves as a diagnostic tool for the bite and possibly Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD).
- It delivers immediate gratification – a beautiful smile in an instant!
- It’s a cost-effective precursor to thin dental veneers, lumineers, or porcelain veneers.
- A snap-on smile can partially close gaps, overcoming dental phobia.
- It’s a quick fix for a dazzling white smile at a fraction of the cost of other cosmetic treatments.
The CONS of a Snap-On Smile:
- It can be fragile and is subject to possible fractures or breakage.
- Your teeth may appear bulkier than before.
- It won’t perfectly mimic the look of your natural teeth or well-crafted porcelain veneers.
- It’s not recommended for severe bruxers or clenchers.
- It may interfere with speech and phonetics, as they are longer than your natural teeth.
- It doesn’t last as long as other cosmetic treatments.

Often known as transitional veneers, snap-on veneers, or clip-on veneers, a snap-on smile requires a thorough evaluation before it can be considered. Dr. Mobasser will ensure that your gums and teeth are healthy, and any issues like cavities or gum inflammation are treated before proceeding with transitional veneers.
Be assured, a snap-on smile isn’t made of ordinary plastic. Unlike over-the-counter products, we use superior DuraCetal Resin. This bio-compatible material offers minimal flex and significant strength, making your snap-on smile durable and safe.
Professionally crafted, a snap-on smile costs start at $2500, depending on the custom work needed. Fabrication takes about two weeks, during which our team meticulously designs your custom-fit veneers. With proper care, these veneers can last 2 to 5 years, offering an affordable and effective alternative to permanent dental veneers.
Remember, a snap-on smile is a cosmetic dental procedure and isn’t covered by dental insurance. While they do add a slight thickness to your teeth, many patients find this an ideal solution for instant aesthetic enhancement.
