Acetal Resin Overpartials for Fast, Affordable Smiles
Our acetal resin overpartial is available in all 16 VITAPAN classical shades. Retention comes from the natural undercuts in the surface of the existing dentition, so it will not impinge the tissue. Many Clinicians are familiar with Denmat’s Snap-On Smile. Their product is also made using an acetal resin. The material used by their company is named DuraCetal and is manufactured by Myerson. Our lab’s acetal resin overpartial and the Snap-On Smile are very comparable to each other; we began fabricating ours in 2004 before DenMat began selling the Snap-On Smile.
Acetal resin overpartials can be used for a variety of functions such as smile enhancement, temporary use while implants osseointegrate, or use as a wearable diagnostic wax up.
Snap-On Smile and Snap-It!
If you prefer the DenMat branded product, we can work with them to provide it to you. Snap-On Smile is a non-invasive cosmetic, removable full or partial arch that literally snaps over the patient’s existing dentition…without impinging on the gingival tissue or covering the palate. It’s completely tooth-borne, so no adhesives are required. Patients can eat, drink, and function normally all day, every day! With proper care, a Snap-On Smile or SnapIt! can last from three to five years and is backed by a 12-month warranty with an optional extension to 36 months
Snap-On Smile is available as a full arch and covers either an upper or lower arch. Also available is the Snap-it! system, which is a unilateral prosthesis available for five units or less. The Snap-It! is also an ideal temporary implant. It simply snaps in place, allowing the patient to eat and drink comfortably. The Snap-it! quadrant serves as an excellent removable partial in cases where the edentulous area(s) between the teeth are not greater than 20mm. The Snap-On Smile and Snap-it! are available in all VITA Classical shades A1 through D4.
