Smile Designing

Snap-On Smile is a comfortable, removable dental appliance that involves no drilling, filing down of existing tooth structure, injections, cementation nor adhesives. Its patented design is flexible, incredibly strong, and functional. The slightly flexible material (acetyl resin) used in the fabrication of Snap-On Smile allows it to expand over the teeth and hug them tightly so the patient can eat and speak without the appliance coming loose or shifting. 

we specialise in transforming your smile using the latest in advanced technology and pain-free techniques.

At your initial consultation, we like to have an informal chat to find out what you are unhappy with – be it fixing crooked teeth, closing up gaps, replacing missing teeth/old crowns, or treating discolouration.

Once your teeth have been assessed, we will go through the different treatment options available, including timings and costings.

So that we can show you instantly what the results will look like, we then take a photograph of your teeth. Using the latest digital software, we can manipulate the image to give you your very own bespoke smile simulation.


 

Your digital design is then transformed into a 3-dimensional smile simulation by our expert dental technicians. Your teeth will be precisely prepared and shaped to exact measurements, ready for a provisional fitting.
 


Smile Simulation

 



3D Smile Prototype
You will now be on the first step to creating your new smile!  

The provisional fitting is a painless procedure and is effectively a "trial run", enabling you to make any changes and to ask the opinion of your friends and family. 

 

 



The temporary teeth...
Finally, the "trial smile" is made into the highest quality porcelain veneers. These veneers are hand-crafted by our master technicians and will have the shape, detail and texture of natural teeth, and will be to your desired colour.

Apart from feeling an initial light scratch, the fitting process is so smooth and pain-free, some clients even fall asleep during the treatment. 

 

 

The finished smile is both dramatic and life-changing.

Maintaining your new porcelain veneers involves as little effort as taking care of your own teeth. With regular check-ups and good oral hygiene, you can expect fifteen long years of perfect teeth. 

 


The final veneers...
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smile Design Rules

 

Below are a few of the most important rules we use to design your perfect smile:

 

1. Horizontal Alignment

Ideally the teeth should be aligned to the horizontal or eye-line.

 

2. Symmetry

Symmetry around the centre line of your face is ideal.  This is of great importance in producing a great smile.  However it cannot always be achieved, but every effort will be made to give the illusion of symmetry.

 

3. Smile Line

The smile line joins the tips of your teeth. It should mimic the curve of your lower lip; this gives a more youthful appearance. If the line is flat, this gives a more aged appearance. Women tend to have a more curved smile line than men.

 

4. Gum Line

An even gum line should ideally follow the line of the upper lip.

 

5. Embrasures

These are the curved corners at the tips of the teeth.  These are there to give definition to each individual tooth.

 

6. Golden tooth proportions

Each tooth should be of certain proportions to give the best length : width ratios.

7. Width

A normal width smile allows you to see the progression of the teeth from the front to back.  If your smile is narrow the teeth towards the back of your mouth cannot be seen.
