A Picture Perfect Smile if Only for a While: One Great Alternative to Expensive Veneers

Posted on

Are you looking to transform your smile for an upcoming event or photo shoot? Are you held back by a paltry budget? Then veneers are probably not what you are looking for. Not only does it take 2 weeks to make a beautiful set of veneers, but it may also leave you broke. And all for just one special day.

If you have an urgent need for a veneer-like smile that you can put on and take off whenever you wish, one that you can actually afford, there is an alternative, a Snap-On Smile. While porcelain veneers are, of course, the optimal cosmetic treatment for a smile, a Snap-On Smile does have a few advantages that make it ideal for someone needing a quick but inexpensive, fix.

Snap-On Smiles Can Be Easily Removed

While Snap-On Smiles are inferior to veneers in terms of appearance and durability, with a lifespan of 2-5 years compared to 7-25 for veneers, they can be placed and removed at your leisure.

When you have an upcoming wedding or important interview to attend then, a Snap-On Smile could be the ideal solution to your smile problem. Not only will your photos look dazzling, but you'll feel much more confident, knowing that you can smile and not have to worry about stains or other imperfections ruining the view.

A Snap-On Smile Requires No Tooth Reduction

One downside of veneers is that they require the removal of enamel in order for a chemically strong bond to be formed between the tooth and porcelain shell. A Snap-On Smile does not need for enamel to be altered in any way.

You simply slip on your smile whenever you need it.

You Can Still Have Dental Work Done

Sometimes in life, we hook up with long lost friends or family members, for a reunion. But if your teeth are currently in bad shape, and you can't guarantee that your dental work will be completed in time for the reunion, a Snap-On Smile can help. Dental repairs and restorations take time and money.

If the clock is ticking and you need a temporary smile-fix to see you through, a Snap-On Smile can give you the look you are after. These thin 10-unit shells, composed of dental resin, can slip over your natural teeth to hide gaps, stains or chips that might otherwise give the wrong impression.

If you want to upgrade your smile on a permanent basis, then porcelain crowns or veneers are more suitable. However, if your finances and time make getting veneers or crowns impossible at this time, a Snap-On Smile is the answer. For more information, contact a local dentist.
