Will a Snap On Smile make my teeth look longer? They are really, really short. I am so is self-conscious about them the older I get. I just graduated from Rutgers with my MBA and I don’t want my teeth to prevent me on getting the kind of job I want. On my father’s side of the family, at least 4 people have short teeth, so it must be genetic. If a Snap-On Smile will work, I would like to order 2 of them so I can wear it every day. Thanks. Amber
A Snap-On Smile fits over your natural teeth, and it can make them look longer, but the results won’t look natural. The appliance can also make your teeth look bulky. It’s not meant to be worn every day, so it wear out in a few months and need to be replaced. Replacing a Snap-On Smile every four months or so can really get expensive.
A cosmetic dentist can lengthen your teeth. Your teeth will need to be examined first though.
Alternatives to a Snap-On Smile for Short Teeth
An experienced cosmetic will recommend treatment options.
- If you have excessive gum tissue, it can be removed, which will make her teeth look long.
- Porcelain veneers can be used to lengthen your teeth. The ultra-thin veneers are bonded to the front of the teeth.
- Direct dental bonding can be applied to your teeth. The bonding will be shaped, hardened, and polished. This should only be done by an expert cosmetic dentist.
You should find an accredited cosmetic dentist to get beautiful, natural-looking results.
