What is clear-correct? what is snap-on-smile?

Two innovative orthodontic treatment options are clear aligners and snap-on-smile. Both treatments offer patients a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces.

What are clear aligners?

Clear aligners use a series of transparent, removable aligners to straighten teeth without metal wires or brackets. The aligners are comfortable and discreet, so no one will know that you’re straightening your teeth unless you tell them! Plus, they’re removable, so you can take them out to brush and floss your teeth normally.

How do they work?

Clear aligners are made through a combination of Dr. Lee’s expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology provided by the company that creates the aligners. First, Dr. Lee decides what movements need to happen in each tooth to move them correctly. Then, he sends the prescription to the 3-D imaging company. The company uses the information to create a digital model of your teeth in their software. After that, they ship the model to a lab that makes your aligners. And finally, you get to wear your aligners all the time, with the exception of about two hours per day that you need to take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gradually move into the correct position. And because they’re made of clear plastic, most people won’t even notice that you’re wearing them!

Are there any risks involved with using them?

Though they are generally very safe, they can still cause problems for some patients. For example, if the patient doesn’t wear the aligners for the prescribed amount of time, the treatment time will be extended. Some patients may also experience discomfort when using them, especially when they first start wearing them. However, any pain is usually temporary and can be treated with over-the-counter pain medications. To ensure your treatment is safe and successful, it’s important to visit your dentist for regular checkups while wearing your aligners. That way, he can make sure everything is progressing as it should.

What is a Snap-On Smile?

A Snap-On Smile is a cosmetic solution for teeth that are missing or damaged. Like dentures, it is a removable appliance that is worn in the mouth over the gums. Unlike dentures, however, the Snap-On Smile is custom-made to fit over the patient’s existing smile. This not only makes the process of getting the Snap-On Smile much easier and less invasive than getting conventional dentures, but it also makes the appliance much more natural looking and easier to care for every day.

The Snap-On Smile uses an acrylic resin for the base of each appliance. This is colored to match the patient’s teeth before the device is fabricated. This makes the Snap-On Smile look very natural and it blends in with their existing smile, making it almost unnoticeable when in place. The end result of having a Snap-On Smile is that a patient can smile and talk without other people even noticing that their smile has been altered in any way. Thanks to the comfort and ease of use of the appliance, patients can enjoy the look of a healthy new smile in only a matter of days.

What many patients love about the Snap-On Smile is that it is so versatile. Unlike the traditional denture or bridge, which is placed by a dentist and then left in place until it is replaced in the future, the Snap-On Smile can be easily removed at any time. This means that the patient can remove and store the device whenever they would like, extending their life far beyond the typical removable appliance. Patients can also easily clean the device at home by simply brushing it with a toothbrush and the toothpaste they use to clean the rest of their teeth and gums. The device can also be cleaned in a solution recommended by your dentist to ensure it stays clean and fresh for as long as possible.

Which is right for you?

Clear-Correct is a similar treatment to Snap-On Smile in that they are both fixed, and removable devices. They both use a series of aligners to straighten teeth without metal wires or brackets. However, there are some differences that should be taken into consideration when deciding which to choose.

Clear-Correct is custom made for you and only you. It moves your teeth with a series of trays that are changed every few weeks until the desired transformation has occurred. The trays are made out of a strong plastic material that won’t break easily if dropped or have a stone get stuck between them. In fact, if you take them to your consultation appointment in your purse and they fall out, we can simply place them back in. They can be taken out for eating and cleaning. If some one wishes to remove them for entertainment purposes, they can be removed for up to two hours at a time. They are more comfortable than wire braces because there are no sharp edges or pokey parts that can hurt your mouth. They are also not as noticeable as traditional braces because they are clear and match the color of your teeth. You can take them out for special occasions, like prom or a job interview, and then put them back in. You won’t need to worry about them falling out of your mouth at an inappropriate time. They also work faster than traditional braces. With traditional braces you are given a new set every few months but with clear-aligners the changes are far more gradual and therefore more comfortable.

Snap-On Smile works much differently than Clear-Correct. It uses a thin plastic piece that fits over your existing teeth and snaps into place so that no shifting happens. It looks a little bit like a mouth guard, but it does not protect your teeth from impact. It can be removed by the wearer at any time, but it is designed to be worn all day long. In addition to being completely removable, it has a very unnatural look that will stand out
