Improving the smile with Snap on Smiles

Improving the smile with Snap on Smiles

A smile is important. Many people will admit that a great smile makes them feel more confident in their appearance. While some individuals are lucky enough be to born with great genetics and a wonderful smile, others have to overcome misalignment, discoloration, chipped or cracked teeth, or other cosmetic flaws in order to achieve the smile they deserve. While cosmetic dentistry has become more affordable in recent years, addressing several issues can be a significant investment.

Patients of Dr. Leo Arellano in San Francisco have a new option with Snap on Smiles. This technology gives patients a fast, efficient, and affordable solution to improve their smiles for special occasions such as business meetings, weddings, family gatherings, or photo sessions. Snap on Smiles are made of acrylic and simply snap into place. Unlike dentures or veneers, they don’t require dental cement or denture adhesive to keep the appliance secure. Furthermore, they are not permanently bonded in place, so they can be used for special occasions and removed.

Dr. Arellano does provide several treatments that will permanently improve a patient’s smile such as veneers, braces or Invisalign, implants, and cosmetic bonding. However, many patients find they can achieve many of the same great benefits such as a brighter smile and improved confidence with a more affordable solution. Snap on Smiles are not a one use solution; they can be used and removed as the patient desires. When cared for properly, the Snap on Smiles will last for many years.

We are here to help Call us at 415-881-4343 or Schedule an Appointment today

People looking for options to improve their smiles can call Dr. Arellano’s office today. During the initial consultation, Dr. Arellano will discuss the perceived flaws, lifestyle, and budget to determine the best solution for each individual case. If the patient and Dr. Arellano decide to move forward with Snap on Smiles, Dr. Arellano and his team will take impressions of the teeth and send them to a dental laboratory where the restorations will be created. When the restorations are complete, patients will return to the office to have them placed, make adjustments to ensure they fit properly, and learn how to snap them into place. The entire process only requires two office visits and they can get the smile they have always wanted.

I've been going to Dr. Arellano for about 20 years and I continue because of the excellent care and treatment I get with him and his whole office team. He is both professional and personable.
Recently I had a newer technique of gum surgery/grafting at his office called, "Pinhole Surgical Technique of gum grafting." I personally found this to be much easier to handle than the other style of gum grafting that I received years ago for the other side of my mouth. That worked, it was where part of my roof of my mouth was cut and surgically sewn onto the gum. However, I much prefer the pinhole technique. It was actually the easiest dental work I've had (beyond regular cleaning.) It didn't take too long and it didn't feel uncomfortable getting it done. I was swollen, but I think that happens regardless of what kind of gum grafting is done. I needed ibuprofin for a few days, no major pain. It healed well and just felt easy. I am not a fan of having any work done in my mouth because that's me, but this was the easiest work I've ever had done.
So, if you are debating which kind of surgery to do I personally would recommend the pinhole surgery.

We've gone to Dr Arellano for many years and have never been disappointed with any of the work he's done. Recently my husband broke a tooth and Leo got him in and had the tooth repaired within a few short hours. Service like that is very hard to finds these days. His office staff is fantastic. Nice people you are always glad to see. I would highly recommend Dr Arellano to anyone who is searching for an honest, competent, well trained dentist.
