Snap-on veneers are removable dental appliances designed to improve the appearance of a person’s smile without the need for permanent dental work. They are typically made of a thin, durable material (usually resin or acrylic) and are custom-made to fit over a person’s natural teeth.
There are three steps to the process of getting your snap-on veneers:
1. Your at-home impression kit will arrive in a few days and we will guide you through the process.
2. Mail the impressions back to our laboratory in Chicago using the pre-paid return label.
3. We’ll mail your custom-made dental appliance directly to your home in about three weeks.
Snap-on veneers are a good option if you have:
• Minor chips in your teeth
• Small gaps in between teeth
• Slightly crooked teeth
• A missing tooth
They’re not a good option if you have cavities, gum disease, discoloration due to untreated trauma, significant chips, or severely crooked teeth.
A common misconception about snap-on veneers is that they damage existing teeth in the mouth. They don’t. However, they can lead wearers to ignore regular dental hygiene, which can lead to damage..
In short, yes, you can eat food and drink liquids while wearing clip-on smiles. However, care should be taken in certain situations.
Hard, crunchy, and hot foods can damage the integrity of your veneers. Chewy foods like gum and caramel should also be avoided, as they can get stuck in your veneers.
Using a soft toothbrush, clean your veneers with mild soap or a special solution specifically for veneers. It’s also important to remove your veneers at night and keep them in their case to prevent airborne bacteria from forming.
At Dental Lab Direct, snap-on veneers start at $599.00.
