What is a Snap-On Smile?
A snap-on smile, also known as a clip-on veneer, is a cheap and easy alternative to permanent veneers that do not require expert dentist work. As such, they have become a popular alternative to their permanent counterparts which can be incredibly expensive.
How Much Does Snap-on Smile Cost?
Clip-on smile veneers typically start from upwards of £340 for a full set or £200 for just the top half. Getting a full set is clearly much better value but both are much more cost effective than permanent veneers which can cot as much as £800 per tooth.
How Long do Secret Veneers Last
Paying less upfront does not help in the long run if it means having to spend the same amount over and over again. The good news is that temporary veneers belie their name and will often last several years if properly cared for.
Typically, they are supposed to last for at least a year and with proper care, this can be extended to several years, Elte veneers made from Acetyl Resin will usually last the longest besides having more attractive and natural looking features.
Can You Eat With Snap-On Smile?
Typically, the wearers of instant smile veneers are advised not to wear them while eating. However, this does not mean that doing so is impossible.
Eating while wearing a snap-on smile can feel a bit strange at first but with time and practice, the feeling will subside. This means that they can be worn out to formal dinners or other events where making a good impression is essential. Eating with temporary veneers in regularly may however decrease their lifespan and each time extra care must be taken when brushing to prevent food from becoming trapped.
Beware Instant Veneers
Instant veneers are placed directly on top of the teeth just like clip-on veneers but they are not custom-made by technicianslike all of our veneers. Instead they are put in hot water for a few minutes. This grants them flexibility to stretch and after trying to fit them to the wearers teeth they are placed in cold water to set. However the result is invariably a very poor result often likened to badly fitting joke teeth, we do not recommend or sell this type of veneer.
