snaponsmileDid you know that back in the 1930s actors and actresses would snap on a perfect plastic smile to hide their ordinary teeth? It’s true. It wasn’t until the 1980s that cosmetic dentistry became super popular among celebrities. Now cosmetic dentistry is for anyone. You may think with all the cosmetic treatments available that snap-on smiles are outdated and a thing of the past, but not so. The Snap-on-smile still has many uses for many people. But, what is a Snap-on-smile? Take our fun true or false quiz below to find out more.

True or False?

  1. True or False: You can instantly improve your smile with a Snap-on-smile.
  2. True or False: Snap-on-smiles involve a long, complex process and several visits to complete.
  3. True or False: You can’t eat or drink with a Snap-on-smile.
  4. True or False: Snap on smiles are made of flimsy materials.
  5. True or False: You should only wear your new smile at home.


  1. True: A smile is an important thing. Research shows that people with an attractive smile seem more confident and approachable, get more job offers, are paid more money, and get more dates. Smiling also makes you feel good by releasing brain chemicals that make you happy, and a Snap-on-smile can instantly improve your smile.
  2. False: It only takes two dental visits and two weeks to be wearing a Snap-on-smile. There is no need for drilling or needles. Your dentist simply takes an impression of your teeth, you select a smile shape and tooth color, and the information is sent to a lab. On your second visit you will be wearing your new smile home.
  3. False: You can eat and drink while wearing your Snap-on-smile.
  4. False: This removable smile is fabricated from a flexible resin material. While it simply snaps into place over your dental arch, the material is made to contour to the curves of your teeth. This is what holds your smile in place.
  5. False: Snap-on-smiles are an effective way to improve your smile for social outings, pictures, class reunions, job interviews, and auditions.
