More than just a cosmetic solution, Snap-on-smile is helpful in solving a wide variety of short- and long-term clinical challenges as both a non-invasive restorative option and a diagnostic appliance. Applications include an esthetic provisional for implant restoration (avoiding the uncomfortable flipper and essex retainer), a vehicle for increasing facial height (vertical dimension), a cosmetic removable partial, and a long-term smile enhancement. Snap-On Smile can last for years and yet is affordable enough to be temporary.
The turn-around time is approximately 9 days for Snap-iT (shade dependent) and 18 laboratory days for Snap On. Smile design can stem from a study model, a wax-up, smile imaging, a smile selection guide or photography. ROE can help with designing a smile using the links to the left of this page.

While designing countless Swing-Lock partial dentures we developed a unique hybrid we call Latch Partial. Valplast Latch Partials are designed with a metal lingual plate and a Valplast thermoplastic tissue colored gate. The swinging gate opens for ease of insertion and removal and the latch can be adjusted to the patient’s level of comfort. As an esthetic alternative to metal clasping, Valplast Latch Partials are strong, esthetically pleasing, and will help preserve mobile teeth.
In some situations, existing partial dentures can be converted into a Valplast Latch Partial. Please contact our partial department Team Leader Larry Kalfas with questions.
