The Snap-On Smile is a temporary smile design, made out of acrylic, that snaps over your natural teeth.
It is made out of a crystallized acetyl resin that is fairly flexible and durable.
Den Mat is saying that it is tough enough to eat with it, and that it will last about four years. Marc Liechtung, the dentist who invented this product, has his own Snap-On Smile he has used for five years.
Keeping this appliance clean is a simple matter of taking it out to brush and floss, and then putting it back in.
The material is tough enough that patients can eat with this in the mouth. The appliance will trap plaque and food particles and this can promote serious decay problems.
This will hurt your teeth, of course, and also it will be annoying.
Everytime you eat anything, even if it is only a single potato chip, I recommend that you excuse yourself to a rest room, take the appliance out, swish thoroughly, and put it back in.
