How are the Snap-on Smile appliances fitted for my mouth? My teeth have always been in good shape until I had to have chemotherapy for 2 yrs. Dentists would not even clean my teeth during that time. Now my teeth are crumbling and crackin apart. I asked my dentist to pull them all and fit me for dentures but he insists he can save them. At his rate it will cost several times over what dentures would cost. So will the snapons work in my case? Thank You.

I wouldn’t recommend putting a Snap-On Smile over broken or decayed teeth. It can be a nice affordable and temporary solution for missing teeth, discolored teeth, or an otherwise unattractive smile. But it won’t arrest the decay or keep additional teeth from breaking.
It sounds like your dentist has your best interests at heart. It’s definitely best to save your own natural teeth when that’s possible.
