New York, NY (PRWEB) March 27, 2008
If "the eyes are the windows to the soul," then certainly a bright and cheerful smile is a reflection of joy and happiness - and a comfortable smile makes all the difference in the world when it comes to that elusive quality we call "beauty." (In fact, when someone gives us an open and heartfelt smile, they immediately become "more beautiful" to us, regardless of whether they'd ever "make it" on a fashion runway!)
Nevertheless, millions of men and women - of all ages and backgrounds - are self-conscious about their smile, and have grown accustomed to delivering only a "partial smile" or even masking their mouth with their hand when they might otherwise smile "for all the world to see."
Over the past few years, New York City dentist Marc Liechtung, D.M.D. has heard countless stories from people who have cut back on socializing with friends and family, withdrawn inside their homes for months at a time, and even gained excessive weight - all because of embarrassment about their teeth and the quality of their smile. Even a large number of very wealthy men and women - who can easily afford the $20,000 to $50,000 cost of extensive implants and veneers - avoid the process of "improving their smile" because of their fear of visiting the dentist.
Two years ago, Dr. Liechtung introduced a solution that has now literally transformed the quality of life for thousands of men and women of all ages and all backgrounds - thanks to what he calls the "Snap-On Smile." It's a thin, flexible, resin shell of perfect teeth that fits over a patient's actual teeth much like a retainer. The entire process requires no adhesive or drilling, and a patient's Snap-On Smile is ready mere days after fitting.
Dr. Liechtung's patients who have been fitted with the "Snap-On Smile" range from a young lady who is a top model for the Ford modeling agency, to a rugged fellow who works as a professional stunt man, and countless others who share one thing in common - an embarrassment about the quality of their smile. Dozens of these patients have written Dr. Liechtung extremely moving letters describing how their lives have been transformed once they felt free to smile once again. (Many of these individuals would be happy to share their stories on the air, because they have a great desire to help others who may be in a similar situation. We also have photos of these patients, to help illustrate the "before" and "after" transformation.)
Prior to having this option available to them, those who sought to improve the appearance of their smile through cosmetic dentistry had no choice but to resort to expensive (and sometimes uncomfortable) drilling and capping - a process involving anesthesia and drilling.
The cost is much less than alternative approaches - approximately $1,000 to $3,000 - a fraction of the cost of reconstructive surgery. Patients can choose from a range of 18 shapes and 17 colors - all the way to "Extreme White Buyer Beware!" For some people with discolored teeth, Snap-On Smile is a perfect solution and a major transformation. It's no wonder they have reason to smile!
While many patients simply want a Snap-On Smile modeled on their own natural teeth, some patients bring Dr. Liechtung a photo of their favorite celebrity. Dr. Liechtung does say, however, "I did not come up with the Snap-On Smile so people could mimic celebrities." His goal was an affordable, minimally invasive dental tool. Thanks to licensing arrangements with Dr. Liechtung, nearly 6,000 dentists currently offer Snap-On Smile to their patients.
