I am thinking about getting a snap on smile or press on veneers for my teeth. My teeth are different lengths and I want them to look even. I am not sure which appliance will last longer. Also, which will give me a more natural look? Thank you. Rhiannon
Rhiannon – A Snap-On Smile is a temporary smile makeover. Although it is not meant to be worn permanently, if you wear it every day, it will last about five years. The Snap-On Smile can improve the appearance of uneven teeth, but since it fits right over your teeth, it can make them look bulky. Press-On Veneers are a do-it-yourself way to conceal your teeth with hopes of improving your smile. They also fit over your teeth. And the results are unpredictable. Depending on which option you choose, they can be more expensive than a Snap-On Smile.
See a cosmetic dentist to discuss your concerns. Porcelain veneers may be right for you. They are permanent and will cover the front of your teeth to make them look even. It could be that your teeth can be contoured, or shaped, to make them even. Even if you decide to get a Snap-On Smile, receiving an appliance that is from a dentist that is customized to fit your teeth can give you more natural-looking results.
Your dentist will also ensure that your Snap-On Smile will not rub and irritate your gums. Do-it-yourself products can be difficult to adjust without leaving them poorly cut or loose on your teeth. If you wear the Snap-On Smile or Press-On Veneers daily, they will wear out quickly. They can last two to three years if you only wear them for special occasions.
To find out which treatment is best for your case, and to discuss your options, schedule an appointment with a cosmetic dentist. The professional advice will save you money in the long term and help you get the best results.
