Snap in Smile: An alternative treatment to expensive cosmetic dentistry is a product called snap on smile. Your dentist takes an impression and makes a thin shell of teeth that fits over your existing teeth. See a general or cosmetic dentist and ask if they make snap on smiles.

Yes: As the others said, a snap on smile will accomplish what you are asking for. However, it's a temporary fix and shouldn't be used while eating. Check with your dentist for another option.

Yes: In one example, an appliance that is like connected veneers can be used to replace a tooth or a few teeth temporarily. This same appliance can also be used to provide a lesser expensive cosmetic makeover. In another example, an overdenture is a full denture which is supported by natural teeth. The teeth provide stability and retention.

Snap on Smile: "Snap on Smile" is almost like theatrical teeth that slide over your existing teeth and can literally transform your smile. It is a quick way to go, but one must remember that it is temporary and not practical for eating! There are several different brands, but the final results are all nearly the same, see your dentist for a permanent makeover!

Yes: There are options out there, but be cautious that the fake teeth do not damage your real teeth or the bite.

Yes: Some call them "party teeth". Glidewell laboratory calls them "smile transitions". They are only for temporary esthetic improvement.

Snap-On Smiles are available at select dental offices. They are custom made to your desired shape and color. The plastic forms slip over your natural teeth. It is important to note that these should be used as a temporary esthetic solution and that eventually more permanent measures should be taken to address the actual tooth problems.

Snap-On Smiles: Snap-On Smiles are available through select dental offices. Impressions are taken of your teeth and custom made forms are fabricated. The teeth are designed to your desired shape and color. These plastic forms fit over your natural teeth. Snap-On Smile should be considered a temporary esthetic solution to be used until a more permanent solution to dental problems can be obtained.
