I’ve had so many problems that I want to switch to a snap on smile. I received porcelain veneers in 2016 and they have been so horrible that the stress is giving me migraine headaches. Over the past 2 years, I spent so much money on the veneers that I really want to avoid paying a dentist just to take them off. After watching several porcelain veneers removal videos on YouTube, I am still looking for DIY videos. I am not going to face the dentist again who gave me the veneers, so I’ve decided to find a new dentist for a snap on smile. I just need a break before deciding what to do next with my teeth, and I think the snap on smile will do for now. How do I remove my own veneers so I can get a snap on smile? Thank you. Kairo
Kairo – Before you decide to get a Snap-On Smile and remove your own veneers, there are a few things to consider:
- Source of the videos – Some of the videos you watched were likely posted by dentists. You may have noticed the meticulous care that a dentist takes to remove veneers, the tools and skill required, and that there were signs that the dentist had an assistant nearby.
- Risks of DIY removal – Trying to remove your own veneers leaves you susceptible to injuring your lips and gums, or causing trauma to your teeth. Although you don’t want to return to the dentist from whom you received the veneers, please find an experienced accredited cosmetic dentist to help you.
- The value of expert advice – Let a cosmetic dentist examine your veneers and recommend treatment. You can contact the offices of two or three accredited cosmetic dentists to request consultations. This will give you an opportunity to ask questions and determine which provider you want to resolve the issues with your veneers.
Is a Snap-On Smile the Answer?
It may help temporarily, but you really need a skilled cosmetic dentist to explain if your veneers really need to be removed, as well as the results you can expect with the Snap-On Smile and whether or not it will accomplish what you want.
You have a lot of decisions to make, but don’t insist on a particular treatment option before you get all the facts.
