This week I wanted to talk to you about my signage. I moved into this office in 1999 and I’ve never put up a sign. So today, I think I’m going to put up a sign. It’s pretty important to me that people have a sign, and everybody’s always asked me how come I don’t see a sign, so we’re going to put up a sign.
I’ve had these posters since about 2000. This tape has been the best tape anyone could ever buy. I don’t know what kind of tape it was, but you’re looking at posters that have stayed for about 15 years so…Looks perfect to me.
Well, who knows? 20 years from now I may do something else, but it took me 20 years to put up a sign. Let me back up and see what this thing looks like from the outside…an office.
Kind of like the posters better, it’s up. We got it, I think. It looks pretty good.
This week we’re not doing a smile makeover, we’re still doing a lot of them. We have a lot of them in the works, but we are doing a TV commercial, and we’re trying to do a commercial that we can send the different markets. Not just nationally, but internationally, so it’s been a big deal.
We want to thank everybody who’s helping our channel grow. We’re now over 12 million views for over eleven thousand subscribers, so if you like what you see, if you like what we do with smile makeovers, please subscribe or leave us a comment below.
It’s pretty important to us that we keep growing our channel, and it’s just some of the things that we’re trying to do. We really think that the smile makeovers that we do are going to be pretty interesting and I think people want to see it.
And, we got a whole lot of stuff coming your way. We like doing what we’re doing, and so far you guys are helping to make it work. We’ve just been amazed we’re finishing this week with the guy from Hawaii.
We were going to cover him anyway but then he just did his own. He takes, he did his own stuff and we think it was pretty genuine and we really just didn’t want to mess with it, so we kind of did a little bit of re-editing on some videos that he sent us and we’re going to finish our blog with that.
I want to tell you I very very much appreciate him I think he he’s an ideal person that speaks for what we do in the he kind of speaks on our behalf. I will tell you we didn’t ask him for the videos and I really never spoke with him other than I’ve seen some of his work and I worked on this case but I was just real proud to see that we were able to send something make it happen and I think you’ll see whether it’s going to have enough to change his life.
We truly believe that what we did is the kind of work that we want to do and I would do it all day long for for life for this guy. So we’re going to finish our blog with him from Honolulu, Hawaii.
Let us know what you think? Comment below and we’ll see you next week.
Thank you, guys.
Aloha Youtubers, it’s me Doug all over from the island of Oahu in Hawaii. I’ll be getting married so, I just want to improve my smile
I didn’t smile for over ten years. I’ve been having trouble smiling and being happy and always hahahaha covering my mouth with my hands for years, and it’s pretty irritating after a while.
Just hope and pray that these guys are doing a good veneer for me and come on Brighter Image Lab, because I know you guys are good.
This is what I’m working with as of right now. So here it is, yeah.
It’s going on four or five days now, and I love it, I love it! Ah look at that! Thank you Laurie, Juan, the whole staff at Brighter Image Lab.
Kenna, can’t forget you Kenna. Bil, you guys have been awesome! Thank you guys so much!
It looks amazing, beautiful! I would never show my teeth in a million years but now, I’m happier than ever.
I got confidence, back um I love to smile and I love it!
Thank you Brighter Image Labs for changing not only my smile, my appearance. All in all, you guys changed my life with a simple procedure. I love it!
Before you guys thinking about getting these press-on veneers, do it, do it, uh, do it, do it. It’s worth it, mm, ah. I can’t feel my face when I’m with you, cuz I love i!t Oh, cuz I love it, oh, oh.
Hope you guys like it, cause I do. Thank you guys!
Brighter Image Lab, you’re the best! God bless all you guys, thank you guys, Brighter Image Lab, Press-On Veneers, get it, get it, ah!
I have lived with depression. I try to make myself feel better by dressing up and putting on makeup and just doing things like my hair. Everything that I can possibly do to make myself gain a little bit more confidence throughout the day, but no matter how much effort I put into every morning or what I do I’m just never fully living the life I want to live because of my teeth.
And a lot of people don’t realize how important your smile is to have like a healthier, happier life, and I can’t have that. I was really praying and hoping that I will be getting veneers. I would be so happy.
This is a story that almost didn’t happen. It came together at the very last minute. So last minute it was going to require us staying up till 1:30 to finish this job. We were going to have to be back at the airport at 4:00 a.m. So, we hope that you’ll forgive the fact that in this blog everybody looks a little tired.
It’s pretty hard on our team. I also want you to know is just how hard blogging really is, but I think you’ll see results were well worth it. In fact I would do it all over again under the same circumstances, even if I had to stay up all night. Let’s see what you think?
We had some meetings in California, and so we thought we would just try to get a smile makeover in. And this little girl that we’re going to meet with, she just seems to be very, very, very excited. I can’t wait to show you. You’ll see some of her pictures from her.
I think she’s just got married to a guy that’s a Marine and she’s got a smile that’s been holding her back. I think she’s trying to do some acting and some dancing, and she just seems to be a pretty strong spirited little person and so hope it works out.
Today, I am actually bleaching my teeth with our new trays, and I got up this morning and didn’t have time to worry about it so I decided that I’m just going to bleach them on the way to the airport. So let’s see what it looks like? I know it looks weird, it feels really good already.
I was on Youtube one day and I saw the advertisement of Brighter Image Lab, and at that moment I was like, you know I’m going to click on this and see where it takes me. I believe having a new smile will open up a lot of doors for me.
When I heard back from you I was super excited! I really thought that I was in a dream and I was going to wake up in the morning and this wasn’t going to be real, but it is real, and I’m here right now and I can’t believe it!
That’s going to come in handy in a minute.
You know what this feels like? this feels like somebody just gave me like the key to all of my dreams.
I’ve only known you for a few minutes we never met each other before me and it’s hard for me to ask this but you really don’t smile?
And you’re this little girl that’s just natural smiling person? I hate that. What happened?
I got two frontal crowns that that didn’t really match my natural teeth, so I was super self conscious about that. And when I went back to the dentist they gave my parents the estimate and they said, I’m sorry we can’t afford that, it’s too expensive.
Someone said that since you’re out here you want to do like dancing or acting or something?
I wanted to pursue that, yeah.
It’s just holding you back that you can’t freaking smile.
It is for sure, yeah.
The bad thing is that a smile for you is not in luxury. It’s a tool, You need it to be you.
First of all, very appreciative for your dad getting you here today.
Thank you, I appreciate it too.
And we’ll hope that it works, so without talking too much let’s just get you some new veneers what do you say?
I’m so nervous!
This is the smallest version I’ve got.
Okay I have a really small mouth and I’m…
This right here is a smaller version hold on one second I’ve got to do one more thing right quick I tell people I would start wearing gloves when I handle stuff.
It was everything we could do to cover the existing spacing and add some height. So if you can, we wish you luck. You’re just going to place it in your mouth like a retainer.
I’m going to hold this up for you.
Ok. I’m nervous.
(whispered) They look really pretty.
Hold on we’ve got to see. Here we go, let’s see what we’ve got.
Oh my God!! They look great!
They do look great.
I can’t even tell…that’s not me!
Wow! That’s not me, that can’t be me!
I’m going to try to hold it up so we can see the light. we did good.
I think it looks great!
This is a full smile. It’s a full smile like you haven’t let your smile out in a long time unless it’s just when no one’s around.
Yeah its’ just so awesome I can’t stop looking at myself in the mirror I’m like oh that’s not me I can’t believe this is me.
You’re not afraid to sing or audition? You’re not afraid to go…
So we’re good! We did good I just didn’t want to let you down. I just I didn’t finish tooling that thing until almost midnight last night and our plane was at 4.
I appreciate that so much.
Yeah so we just heard about it and so it was kind of glad you got back with me. I think you can go anywhere and smile I’m going to pause for a minute because I want you to see what I see. It’s just hard for me to believe this is not your everyday you.
I know I’m staring way too much.
They look amazing.
I can’t stop smiling because this is like like seven years worth of smiling that I need to catch up on.
With this kind of smile what I’m hoping you can do is go I am no longer embarrassed so when you’re around your family you don’t smile.
They always see you cover up yeah and people know it’s because she’s got a part of her smile she just doesn’t like, that she’s not proud of…
I think we got rid of that smile today.
I think we did too!
You have to be in shock!
I am, this feels like a dream.
What do you think it’ll do tomorrow for you?
Tomorrow I think I’m going to check for it on the side table to make sure this wasn’t a dream, and then continue on my day and just walk around outside and just start smiling at all my neighbors like, Hey! How’s it going?
Just get back to being in the world.
Call some people, and just make some things work. I will tell you they fit you absolutely amazing.
Yeah they fit perfect!
I think you’re going to help a few other people make a decision who are on the fence going I don’t believe that that works. We always try to select people that we whole heartedly believe their smile’s waiting for them. You know like like that person if you give that they’re gone, they’re the energizer bunny I think.
You know what happened I don’t need to tell you I’m just going to tell you the truth. I was getting up there last night and I was slamming stuff around and being a jerk.
And going if we’re going to do this I want to do it right. I don’t really have time if it’s not right I’m not doing so I’m like guys this is feeling bad I’m not doing it. And a little girl came to me and she said I just got the follow-up text in this little girl thinks that you might change her life and be an answered prayer and if I have to polish it and stay here until you get back up here and give it back to you I’ll stay.
That if you’re going to fight me over it, and she said you’re not leaving dude.
Her name’s Jill, and she said you stay or I stay, and she gets off at midnight, and I said well if you’ll stay with me until I get this done so I don’t have to lock up myself. But it worked but I have a little girl my offices that said I’m not going to read the hopes of that message that she sent about her heart being that strong her truly trying to fight her way into something is better.
I think you’re going to be good things with your smile and I think it was well done. If there’s anything more than we can do for you please let us know.
I think you guys did the absolute maximum you guys could do plus more if it’s possible, because this is absolutely amazing. I’m going to be walking out this door with a new smile and so ready to conquer the world and walk out the door and smile every day and not be so self conscience anymore. You guys are all like little angels in a workshop making dreams happen. That’s how I see it!
Los Angeles, CA is not the only city we hear stories like these from. We also hear stories from clients in areas like: Pasadena, CA, Santa Monica, CA, San Diego, CA, Las Vegas, CA, Phoenix, AZ, Flagstaff, AZ, Reno, NV, Albuquerque, NM, Tucson, AZ, El Paso, TX, San Jose, CA, San Francisco, CA, Sacramento, CA, Santa Fe, NM, Las Cruces, NM, Fresno, CA, Bakersfield, CA, Henderson, NV, St. George, UT, Riverside, CA, Anaheim, CA, Ogden, UT, Logan, UT, Grand Junction, CO, Pueblo, CO, and Las Cruces, NM
So everybody’s been asking me for the week update on my new smile.
So the biggest question I usually get is how do you possibly eat with those in?
Honestly, I can’t even feel them when I have them in. It’s not simple and material these are made out of are made from NASA, so these aren’t supposed to break. These are supposed to stay in your mouth as long as you want them to stay in your mouth. Which is amazing because if you’re at social events obviously you don’t wanna be popping out your smile.
I kind of refer it back to when I had retainers. I hated popping out my retainers when I was at dinner with friends or I was at social events where I couldn’t eat with my retainers in. But you can eat with these, I promise you.
Also stay away from like biting into an apple that is one of the most fragile parts of your smile in general. All your two front teeth so beware of that. I have not broken these at all and I eat perfectly fine with these. Just be aware of what you’re eating, you know? Sometimes don’t bite into that apple, you know? Cut that apple and, you know, put it in the back of your mouth.
Beware of hard steaks, like, anything hard at it just be kind of cautious on, but you should be fine.
Another big question regarding the veneers is do I have a lisp?
Now, between three to four days you’ll gradually have…that’s natural because you have a foreign object in your mouth and mine over time which you probably see in my vlog the lisp as with each word I said was going away.
Now, granted, I do have a little bit of a lisp. It’s 99.9% gone. I just got the retouched up veneers yesterday so I’m still getting used to these ones, but it’s already gone at you but for the Lisp it goes away three to four days depending on how you talk.
I actually practice talking with them the day that I got my veneers I was in my car and I was singing along to songs I feel like that’s one of the easiest ways to get used to the veneers in your mouth, um, just talk you’ll naturally figure out a way. Your mouth will naturally figure out a way to talk with them in just like any foreign object like a retainer or your braces.
Another thing that I wanted to bring up was how real my teeth look it’s absolutely insane. A video clip of me showing my teeth up close and personal because it amazes me the amount of compliments I get in the day. Like who did your teeth who was your orthodontist, and I refer back to Brighter Image Lab every single time.
I’m like I am so proud of the work that Brighter Image Lab did for me and I am hoping to work with them a lot more in the future if it’s from doing more sets for my teeth or different designs of my teeth or just helping, you know, get them out there because if they help me I know they’re gonna help a lot more.
My teeth were a struggle to work with and they did this in a matter of just a month. It wasn’t that easy. A smile is very important to me I use it for my job. I use it for school to make friends and so far, so good!
I can’t wait to come back with you guys let me show you the month, or the six month, or the year update with these.
Brighter Image Lab you kicked butt like always!
I’ll see you soon!

Hi. Is this Brittney? Hey Brittney, this is Matt with Brighter Image. We went back and looked at your GoFundMe page. Let me ask you a question. If we can get you a new smile in the next month or so, and we could pay for it, would it be okay if we brought it to you in person? You wouldn’t mind? Okay. Great. Yes, absolutely. Okay, well, we’ll set it up. Okay, we’ll see you then. Thanks Brittney!
Good morning. Today we’re going to Cincinnati Ohio. Very excited about the smile makeover that we’re doing today probably one of the youngest, young ladies that I’ve done one for. She’s in high school just got bullied because of her smile and went to a dentist it spent some years and some braces and it just didn’t work out for her.
She had too many bad things, and she went online and asked us to help her and that’s why we’re going to Cincinnati Ohio and I couldn’t be more excited. So I hope today goes well. Then follow me and let’s see how it goes…
Five years ago I was gonna get my braces and I was really really excited because I had a huge gap that I was called sponge Brit for from first grade all the way up until seventh grade.
Through those five years they would, they pulled a tooth that wasn’t supposed to be pulled out and put on wrong wires. Kind of ruined my braces experience so when they took off my braces even my retainer didn’t fit at all, so I was without a retainer that they wouldn’t replace.
I was without dental records that they wouldn’t hand over and I was told by a professional a dentist that I had a twelve-year-old smile. My smile has always been my insecurity, so when a professional in the dental field said, yeah, you uh you have a twelve-year-old smile, it really hurt me.
I just I don’t take pictures and if I do I always have someone edit my teeth in them. Like I’m open about that. The teeth that you see in my pictures now aren’t my teeth.
I want to be a doctor one day and I want to come off to people with a beautiful smile and you know show that I’m, I take care of myself, and I feel like a smile is the first impression someone gets.
If I go into a job interview even as a high school and I smile I feel like that’s already points deducted off my interview chart.
I mean I’m just a general like happy person and I like to laugh and I like to smile. If, if someone feels insecure about that, then they don’t enjoy laughing, and they don’t enjoy the moment that they could laugh because they’re thinking about their smile. That’s always what I dealt with since I was eight years old.
I made a GoFundMe page to get my veneers and now I’m here with Brighter Image Lab getting the smile but I’ve always wanted I think having a smile that I’m gonna be so proud of…
…The biggest thing is I will be able to go out and enjoy the moments with my family and be able to smile in situations where I can smile and I can laugh, and not have to worry about covering my mouth and feeling insecure. Or having to wait multiple days to post a picture from an event for my friend to Photoshop it and nobody should have to go through that so…
Once I get the smile that I want I’m gonna feel so much more confident to do anything.
I remember Matt calling me and saying, we over several months have been watching your GoFundMe page and have been keeping track with your story.
Let me ask you a question if we could get you a new smile in the next month or so and we could pay for it, would it be okay if we brought it to you in person?
And right when he said pay for your veneers I started balling like I’ve never cried like a baby like this before. I remember running down the stairs crying with the phone in my hand like shaking like mom I’m gonna get the teeth that I wanted.
And like my mom started crying and like we gave the biggest hugs because I was at the point where I didn’t even want to have my senior photos done. Like one of the biggest moments of my life I did not want to have done because of my smile.
So like right when I knew that dates were set I was like okay so that’s when I’m gonna get my senior photos done, let’s do it.
What attracted us to her was the action but she didn’t you know whether they get funded or not you didn’t sit around and go I’m just gonna, I’m just gonna hope.
We actually sat down and a went and put a plan together and go I’m gonna do something that makes me different than someone who just wishes. Then we got the email and you know like there was a lot of conversation, like are you sure you don’t just leave this alone? Like we we think her spirit’s pretty big.
I’ve never been more excited in my life and that says a lot.
Do they feel like they’re in good?
Yeah, they’re in.
Go Like this. Oh wow lookie there! Whoa!
Oh my God I’m going to cry!
Don’t cry, please don’t cry!
I know you’re going to mess up your make-up.
You’ve got to get them in a little more. Can you close your mouth on them?
And you feel like they are all the way on? They’re just not tall enough?
Yeah, I feel like they’re all the way on, they’re just not like capping right there.
Wow look at the difference!
Like these look so pretty already. Smile.
Oh my god!They look so natural.
I’m so happy! Oh my God, they are gorgeous!
I mean they look beautiful like just that one fix that’s all we have to do.
You’re going to be amazing!
I’ve always wanted canines! Oh my God.
You look good!
You could have told anybody there was anything missing but then you see that smile and it’s absolutely perfect!
Big, big, big day. We just got the airport. Got my tickets. Trying to make it back. The flights delayed and so we don’t know if we’ll make it but we’re gonna try.
This young lady named Brittney really did us a good job today. She’s got a lot of hopes and a lot of lot of things to achieve in her life and I think she has a vision that she’s gonna make it, and if she sees somethings holding her back she finds a way.
So you can’t be around her and not feel better. I’m so proud of what I think she’s going to be able to do with her smile and we always try to find people that we think not only will have a nicer smile but it will improve their life.
But what I have to tell you is we’ve done almost 20 blogs and I guess I got a little too confident on this one I didn’t bring a spare I didn’t bring an adjustment. I just took confidence because the impression looks so good this one was about 99% and I’m gonna make some adjustments to her work and I’m gonna send it out FedEx to her before the weeks out.
Brittney didn’t miss a beat you can see a little bit of gum tissue of tooth between her gums and she says Bil it’s no problem it’s great from a you know from two feet away you can’t tell and it was true you couldn’t and I really had to second-guess it but it wasn’t as perfect as I’d like for it to be.
And so to us it kind of kills our spirit because it’s not the work that we want to do we really want perfect. With the exception of that we had a wonderful, wonderful day.
And for the people who know her you’ll know that her smile is a luxury it’s absolutely everything that she is. And it’s a tool that she can’t do without and I had no idea that she was going to be this exceptional of a person.
I saw that smile bring her out today we’re just a really good time bob and weave and left right hook, man this girl’s a fighter! She’s gonna do well super impressive good energy super contagious and she’s the reason why we want to do smile makeovers she’s the reason why we want to do veneers.
I hope that her I hope that the work speaks for itself the pictures I got already are amazing like I say we were 20-30 minutes to the airport and my office called me and said hey you’ve got some pictures from the young lady that you worked with today and so we got one of those and then I got another one which I thought was pretty cool.
Then there’s your senior picture which I thought was great and then there’s another one see let’s see what we did and I think I think we’re better for it.
So guys wish me luck on getting home tonight and we’re gonna end it there.
I just got the new veneers in and they feel and look and so much better oh my gosh I’m in love my teeth are already adjusting with each and every single word that I say these I’m getting used to them already and they look so beautiful
Thank you guys!
Brittany’s story was in Cincinnati, OH, but we hear stories from clients all over in places like: Columbus, OH, Indianapolis, IN, Louisville, KY, Pittsburgh, PA, Cleveland, OH, Detroit, MI, St. Louis, MO, Memphis, TN, Nashville, TN, Bowling Green, KY, Evansville, IN, Dayton, OH, Lexington, KY, Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD, Erie, PA, Buffalo, NY, Akron, OH, Richmond, VA, Charlottesville, VA, Roanoke, VA, Lynchburg, VA, Charleston, WV, Fayetteville, NC, Fort Wayne, IN, and Toledo, OH
Tooth decay is a big deal in this country and it’s preventable. In fact if I’ve never said it before it’s the number one most preventable disease in this country and we’re not doing enough to cure it. It gets bad and then within a few years of 18 people have decayed it so bad that people go WOW. They look at it like its social like it’s a social class like they just neglected it and people don’t understand the power of bacteria or how quick a smile can deteriorate.
Our story came from that she was 18 years old her teeth started going bad. At some point she went to dentist and was handed a bill for $18,000.
$18,000 or nothing is not a choice. At Brighter Image Lab we try to do New Life Smile Makeovers because we think that anybody that’s sitting there with a smile is holding them back is not living their full life.
I think that we were able to show this young lady that you have a choice.
Hey guys I’m at the airport today, and we’re flying to Rapid City South Dakota.
This young lady is 28 years old with two kids. Since she was 18 years old she’s had a smile that she’s been embarrassed with. She gave me a story that said I went to the dentist and tried to get something done before it got worse.
How do you tell a mom at 18 or 20 years old that it’s gonna cost $18,000 or we can’t do anything for you and then let them leave and continue to be embarrassed? We don’t do that anywhere else in society. We don’t do it anywhere.
…But she had gross embarrassment and nobody has helped her. There’s not anyone to turn to.
What we’re hoping is she’s gonna get a new smile, that it goes well, that she gets to see herself in a better light.
She’s young enough to where I don’t think her kids have seen her smile, I don’t think her husband sees her smile, hopefully it’ll all go well.
Follow me as we go along, and I’ll see at the end of this trip.
We’re at the airport. We got it. We made it. Rapid City South Dakota is a sunken, true treasure. If anybody’s not been here, they ought to look it up. But this whole thing wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for Lori.
She took it last minute. We called 40 different places and they kept saying no, we can’t do that much work…no, we don’t want the responsibility of it not working…no, it may be too hard, and Lori said come on in. If you have a need we’re gonna help you take care of it, and she did it. You want to talk about a first-class operation?
When I heard y’all were coming I was very ecstatic and excited and nervous, but I was ready for a new smile.
I’ve seen you change already, like, what I see is what I knew I would see, and when this magic’s done the whole village should have been here for you since you were 18. Can you tell me what happened? What caused it?
Um I said the dentist told me he that he believes its genetic. Yeah, cause my mother had very bad teeth too. After I had my first child, they just started getting really brittle.
But I’m telling, you just being happier and just seeing you here from when I saw you walking in it’s a difference of half-full or half-empty.
Everything was two or three times harder than we thought it was gonna be with more to do it wasn’t just let’s start and get finished.
Oh man, I think that having a new smile will bring me out of the house more and take me to do things with my children and actually be able to go out and have dinner or have a drink with my husband on a weekend.
Not being able to smile has brought on depression in my life and anxiety from it. I can’t enjoy plenty of things with my kids and my husband and you know, just as much as small as sitting around watching a comedy and they’re laughing and I’m not laughing because I don’t want to show my teeth.
I would tell people at home that you’re never too old to have a great smile. You’re…You can always improve yourself.
I think if I could go back and tell myself something I would say to march straight to the dentist and get something done right now or it’s gonna, they’re gonna be ruined in no time…
…And when they tell me $18,000 I thought, um, I’ve got about three thousand dollars I can afford. I was upset and I felt small I felt like there was nothing else I could do.
I felt like the dentist didn’t even care that I was…He could tell that I was self-conscious, right, and I felt like he didn’t even care.
Even when it’s time for us to go out and have dinner and things like that I want to get dressed up, and I want to fix my hair and make-up, but I don’t because I feel like there’s no point whether I put it on or not my smile is still not gonna be there.
Oh, I wish every day I think about it every day that I wish I would have been able to do this sooner! I believe that with a new smile I will always be having my make-up on, my hair done, and I have a feeling that my wardrobe is about to get bigger!
I’m very nervous, but excited.
You’ve been going all day.
And so, if you don’t mind…This one is our model version.
See how polished that is?
I want you to try that, let’s put it in, and you’ll have the biggest smile.
No, you’re gonna go right in.
We’re there. it’s gonna take a second, you just stay with it.
How weird does it feel?
It feels weird.
Does it feel bulky?
You gotta give it a few seconds.
And we’re gonna try a different…You see that? No one can do that, and you haven’t seen enough of it. See they, I’m as close as you can be. Let’s look, here, you look amazing! Absolutely amazing!
I’m so close to you that I can’t tell and if I can’t tell nobody can tell.
You look amazing.
You look at the detail between the two teeth.
No one’s ever going to be looking at your teeth like that. I wish you could see this.
Look in the mirror. Look who that is. For the first time that’s not anybody anyone is going to say no to. That’s a lady who came in and she’s amazing. You could be hired for real estate, you could be hired for sales. You could be hired for almost anything because they need you in the room. Because this girl’s so well put together, she’s amazing.
That’s my mom. That’s my wife. That’s my daughter. You see what I’m saying? That’s my best friend. She had a long time with the sentencing that she didn’t deserve.
$18,000 was not your only option. You should have had a better choice. Your little boy…I shouldn’t meet you before your little boy, or your daughter. She’s gonna can you imagine an example just how radiant a woman my mom, my mom decided to come back?
Please tell me you see what I see?
You don’t want to teach her not to smile. You don’t want to teach her all that. You want to teach her to be excited!
I’m very excited! I can’t wait to my kids see it, or my husband.
I have to tell you that I’m very impressed with the young lady that we worked with. You know, all we ever see from the from the people who we pick for a New Life Smile is people that we think would actually have a lot of potential if they had a new smile.
I can tell you that hopefully you’ll see in the video that this young lady has a lot to say and a lot to do and she has a whole lot to offer.
At the end we get to meet a family and one of the most beautiful families you’ve ever met in your life.
I feel real good about what we did today. I have to say it was it was more of a challenge than I thought it was going to be. We had a situation where we came in and saw the town and Mount Rushmore was amazing.
I get the feeling that if you come in the summer you’ll never leave, but I also get the feeling that if you come in the winter you probably won’t ever come back.
You know there’s a lot of scenery here, a lot of things to do. It was a good, good, good trip. It was a quick in-and-out we had a great time, but the job that we did was tough.
To always train yourself to smile without showing your teeth it’s just not good. We’ve seen it in the past for people whose daughters aren’t used to seeing them smile, and we know as grown-ups, your babies learn how to how to interact based on how they see you interact.
I saw this young girl walk in as an average mom that had been neglected with not a whole lot of extra.
You know people say that, you know cosmetic teeth are, just I mean the looks of your teeth are just cosmetic. That is so incredibly wrong, and I don’t know how else to say it.
It did everything it could do, and it’s amazing that the smile can do that little bitty of a thing imagine what it cost her not to have it for ten years and she is somebody that everybody should proud of and now you can tell her husband is already proud of her. You can tell her family thinks the world of her.
This is the kind of smile makeover that we want to do. We hope that you’re impressed with her before-and-afters. We hope you enjoy it and we’re gonna end it here.
This story was in Rapid City, SD, but we hear stories from clients all over in areas like Sturgis, SD, Casper, WY, Grand Island, NE, Omaha, NE, Sioux Falls, SD, Sioux City, IA, Minneapolis, MN, St. Paul, MN, Bismarck, ND, Great Falls, MT, Cheyenne, WY, Fort Collins, CO, Denver, CO, Colorado Springs, CO, Manhattan, KS, Topeka, KS, Kansas City, MO, Overland Park, KS, Idaho Falls, ID, Boise, ID, Spokane, WA, Seattle, WA, Portland, OR, Salt Lake City, UT, Provo, UT, Grand Forks, MN, and Aberdeen, SD
For years I have struggled with smiling, and it was due to the fact that I have a pretty major crossbite. This has just given me so much confidence, and I am so grateful.
Hey guys, this week I wanted to do a different type of vlog. It’s pretty important to me.
I had a young lady from Australia. She’s an international client, and actually I think she was born in New Zealand and moved to Australia. What it did is it let me tell you a little bit about what we think about our Australian market and more so about what goes on in our international market.
Guys, we think the world of Australia. We’ve been doing business there for 20 years. We’ve serviced clients in Perth all the way over to Brisbane and we’ve just been all over. We have a lot of clients in Australia and we have just as much for New Zealand.
Guys, what I want you to know is that it’s really not America versus Australian, local versus international. It’s really between me and you. Our lab direct system makes it to where I can send anybody our system and do their work on an international level. We do a lot of work in Malaysia, a lot of work with Philippines.
It means the world to me these international clients. I mean it. Take this opportunity to let somebody in your neighborhood and your backyard tell you about what we do and what we did for them.
So I’ve got this young lady who had a really challenging case a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful person. But she had some challenges with her smile, and I’m sure that as soon as she could change that or correct that she would. And then we get these pictures from her. I’m proud of the results. I think the world of her.
Anytime you get these kind of results, and you’re in the business that doing what we do, then you want to stop and pause and be glad that you actually get this because it helps us do the things that we do.
We stay late we work around the clock. I’m just very, very appreciative of this person and I was really happy to see this is sweet.
But I want to spend the special thanks to Nicole, you doing that for me it gives me the energy to make sure that I can do more for people in the same area. I hope the world that your wedding goes absolutely amazing. I hope the pictures are great. The staff tells me that that’s coming up pretty close so, thank you the world again for this testimonial and I’m hoping that your video for your wedding turns out to be more special than you would have imagined, and tell your dad thank you very much – for his support. I understand he had something to do with you getting these done.
Guys, we’ve got some other vlogs coming. This wasn’t what we planned. I thought enough of this testimony that I wanted to get it out.
Again, Nicole I hope I hear more from you with your wedding pictures thank you the world Plus through next week.
Hi everyone, so I thought I’d jump on here and let you in on a little secret I found. Three years I have struggled with smiling due to having a really bad crossbite. And I was looking at better options other than getting braces which I really can’t afford because they’re like six grand here in Australia.
So I went online. I typed in, I think I typed in press on veneers and it came out straight away with this company called brighter image lab. I went onto their website, I had a look at all the reviews and they were amazing. Which I was pretty pleased with and I thought I’d take a chance and just at least try another option before I went put braces.
I’m getting married in April so it was not really going to be an option for me to get braces straightaway because I would not like to look at my photos wearing braces.
I ordered my kit which you get a kit with moulds which they call them impressions. Sorry, get a kit with the mold clay and then you have to mix it together and put it in a tray and push it into your mouth. Which I obviously didn’t do it because it was perfect and then you send them back they give you a little bag to send back to them and you send them back in then they send you the end result.
I paid for a 30-day shipping so I sent them back and they came back within 30 days I think they came be earlier which was amazing. I just got them yesterday which I am so happy with. I am extremely grateful that was so good with communication and they were always checking up on me. I always would be able to message them and ask them how they were going and they would always give me the answers and I am just overly amazed at how good I look.
I’m going to show you what they look like without my veneers in which I really don’t want to. So they feel my teeth without the veneers and they just snap on literally they look so amazing and I would like to thank Brighter Image Labs for helping me to regain my smile and helping me to have a great wedding cause now I can smile. I just feel like I have so much more confidence now
So thank you Brighter Image Labs, you’re amazing!
We hear countless stories like Nicole’s from clients in areas like Sydney, New South Wales, Melbourne, NSW, Brisbane, Queensland, Perth, Western Australia, Adelaide, South Australia, Gold Coast, QLD, Canberra, New South Wales, Newcastle, NSW, Wollongong, New South Wales, Darwin, Northern Territory
Domestic violence has become so prevalent in this country women are dying at the hands often daily you know women are imprisoned in their own home there were times that I felt like that but didn’t there were times that I didn’t because I’m a strong woman I’m the kind of woman that’s gonna fight back let’s do another one.
Guys today we’re here in North Carolina and I want to show you a little bit about this smile make over we’re gonna do. I got a story that meant the world to me and it was pretty compelling and I didn’t want to leave it. It was hard for us to get it fit it in but it almost got skipped a couple of times. But I wanted to make this happen and when it comes down to doing one you want to do one that matters to you and there’s a reason why we do what we do and that’s why we’re in North Carolina today.
So I wanted to say thank you for meeting with me. Where did you go out looking for a way to improve your smile or just by googling?
I’ve been trying to pick out something for a long time but it’s just so expensive, you know, so expensive.
It is expensive. There ought to be some choices. You said you’re from Boston?
What brought you to North Carolina?
Change, and I would always say if I ever moved any where I wanted to move to Charlotte, and I came here and I’ve been here ever since.
I heard you had a pretty rough marriage.
So, you’re in a bad marriage and one morning you wake up you don’t have any teeth.
Well, it wasn’t that one morning I woke up with, just one moment.
Oh one second.
Yeah, it’s just one, just a bad situation.
What do you do after? What happens the next day? What do you do, just act like it’s gonna be okay?
Of course not. You know, look at me. I’m gonna tell you something, right? You know the law got involved.
On many occasions the law got involved you know it ain’t my fault I don’t care what I say to you.
It doesn’t matter.
It doesn’t give you the right to put your hands on somebody.
You can always leave.
You know, easily. You know he took away quite a bit of my years. He did something, it did something to me for a while, but I said I wasn’t gonna let that continue to dig away at me. You know what I mean? Because I got goals and aspirations but sometimes when you you look like this, you know what I’m saying?
Oh I know. I’m listening to you that’s why we’re here. There’s gonna be a hundred thousand women that watch this thing, and a lot of those are gonna be in your same situation. What do you tell them to do when they’re in that situation that’s not good for them?
What I had to do is I pray. That’s the only thing I can share, ok? That’s what I had to do. I had to pray and ask God because that’s my belief. Everybody’s beliefs may not be the same, but whatever higher power that you believe in other than this earth you got to pray and ask for strength to go on. Because there’s so many times that I just I wanted to retaliate but I knew if I retaliated I would end up either dead or in prison somewhere.
Just bad people.
No good around you.
It would get real ugly sometimes. It would get real ugly, but this was the last straw.
Like these young girls that are listening, and they get into, they got boyfriends that are pushing and shoving.
Well they got to get out. See, you can’t, see what happens is you start thinking to yourself: ‘Okay, we won’t work this out because I know him one kind of a way. Now all of a sudden, I’m seeing a different person. So maybe we’re gonna try to work this out. I’m gonna do what I can do on my end to try to work this out so that this can stop, gotta..’ Can’t do that.
When it happens the first time, you gotta roll out.
Just get out. Get out of there.
That’s right because whatever it is in a, in a person man or woman whatever it is in a person that drives them to be physical with somebody unless they get help for themselves it’s gonna be a continuous thing. There are many support groups out here for young ladies, for men, because they’re men that are being abused as well. There are plenty support groups out here. The bottom line is you gotta find something within yourself to say I don’t deserve this.
When I read your story I I felt like you were my people. Like you were where I come from I come from pretty tough neighborhood, too. I was in a situation where I heard a lady one time say I won’t make him do that to me again, and that never left me. I hate today bothers me so bad, but I hate thinking that this lady’s in North Carolina trying to do better and I thought this is my lady. This is, these are my people. This is the lady that I want to be on, this is the one that I want to work for.
The case that we had was really challenging to build you a smile, but I when I stayed up I stayed up late to get it. Me and her live on the same street and we’re neighbors as far as I was concerned. Have you ever thought about what would be different if you didn’t lose your smile?
What wouldn’t be different? There’s so many things that I could have done. There’s a lot of opportunities that I think that I missed out on not feeling like I look good enough, you know what I mean? I don’t think that I’m a bad-looking person, you know, but look at my teeth.
Yeah, and you learn not to smile. And when you learn not to smile you teach people not to smile.
It makes people take different directions in life.
But now, you know, not only that, you know, is I’ve gotten used to this but you know for a long time, you know. I would sit and not talk to people and you can see people look at you. It’s almost like they’re saying if only she would fix her teeth. You know? You know, people just look at you different. They look at you different, you know what I mean?
What I love about your story is is that you say, “I’m getting up. Oh, I’m getting up. I’m not staying down.” And I like that it means the world to me that I help people who try to help themselves and we hope that we can help people and seeing yourself as that person you would have been all these years. Who would she have been and I’d like to know you would say Ms. McGee in the Church is very awesome has to beautiful smile cause I think they would have said that minus one guy getting mad at you. You’ve overcome all these obstacles and the one thing that’s out of reach is a cosmetic dentist is just not affordable. Just couldn’t do it. Might as well buy another house.
I didn’t want you, I got the feeling that if we didn’t do it it probably wasn’t gonna happen. And so, I don’t think any dentist was gonna do it for you, and I think the cost is going to be too big, and I thought let me design this for this lady. I’m with you that’s why we’re here that’s why I wanted to come to North Carolina.
And I thank you so much.
But let’s see what we can do. I don’t have my gloves today so I’m going to let you grab this thing, then…
Let me get my glasses.
So, if you can, let’s start with that one?
We just go upper?
Upper, yeah. Let’s see what we’ve got.
Yeah, it’s supposed to be real tight.
Okay, look at me for a minute.
Is that right?
Oh my God it’s right. Feels weird to have teeth doesn’t it?
It looks amazing, oh my God!
It looks so…
They can call back! Oh my goodness, look at that! It looks Good!
It looks amazing. Let’s look right here.
Oh my goodness!
We’re doing it.
It looks so good!
I gotta to say something.
They look amazing. Let me see. Chin up a little bit. Oh my God!
I love it and they’re white! They look good I like it!
They look amazing, thank you.
Let me see again. I love it. I can smile now! Look at that! I know I have to get used to it and that I understand.
You haven’t had anything there in 6 years.
That’s better than that any day.
I got some teeth now! I love it! Let me ask you a question. Suppose I lose weight will that make a difference?
You’re going to lose weight everybody I deal with in six months are a different person.
Are you serious?
Yes, because what’s happening is they start walking, they start learning, they get on the internet, they go out, they see people. You’re going to be a different person!
I’m going to have a new attitude! I love them! Wait until I take a picture and show my mother!
You look beautiful. Okay, you gotta get used to them first.
I know like what I thought you know how you can see like the gumline like what oh my goodness it’s like it’s fits right with my gum. Child, it’s on.
You look beautiful. You look like a college professor.
Oh you’re too much! I love them!
We’re going to make it.
Lord you have me crying out here.
No, we’re not going to cry, we’re going to be happy today.
Let me tell you something, this is awesome.
Nobody has to pay that kind of money for these. Child these right here you know my mother 80 years I’m gonna get a picture.
We’re going to take a picture in a few minutes, yeah. The people you know in the future are never gonna know the lady that got her teeth knocked out.
Yeah when I feel comfortable with it in my mouth already.
Now here’s what I got to ask you some things. We know we never met each other did we?
We don’t know each other?
No, we do not.
You never tried these on before today?
This is the first time, and that’s the truth.
Do you feel like they’re gonna fall out?
Do you feel like they’re loose it’s like they’re too loose?
No, they’re secure. They’re up in there, honey. Yeah, yeah, up in there.
Yes, I got one more thing I got to ask.
There’s dentists out there all over the country telling people they can’t take their own impression, they can’t…
That’s not true!
You did it yourself?
I’m gonna tell you why because I thought like that too I felt because I’ve been to the dentist before and I’ve been in a situation where you got trained dentists that had to do it one or two times. I’m telling you Child I’ve got that look that little blue ball and that white ball rubbed it together and and then I was kind of before I even did it I sat at the table. I was like oh my god I only got two shots let me get this thing right. Okay, and then the mixing part you know I was like it wasn’t hard to mix it at all then when I put it in that tray it was it was easy.
Considering it saves people tens of thousands of dollars you know like you could go and pay thousands of dollars and let it Dentist do it or you can do it yourself at home.
And honey this is what you get.
It’s amazing in no time at all you’re going to learn how to adjust yourself. It’ll adjust your wardrobe, you know, adjust your style, you’ll adjust all these things and you’re going to be able to smile to people. I guess you make a lot of money working with the public?
You’re going to be so much more confident.
Talking to people and saying hello.
Let me tell you something we just had a big event that came here in Charlotte and you had all kind of men that came to Charlotte. You had tall ones, short ones, fat ones, skinny ones, ugly ones, they was just all over the place honey. Yeah, I wish I had these teeth last weekend.
Oh yeah, and then you go and let me tell you, you look so beautiful with your smile. I’m gonna ask you to spend some time practicing smiling. I promise you if you’ll just get some pictures of yourself, you’re gonna fall in love with them. I’ve seen two different people and I’m seeing a lady that deserves to smile. You have an amazing smile.
I can’t wait until the church sees it.
Lord have mercy when I roll up with these pearly whites right here…Let me tell you something you have to love what you do to come this far to do this for me, little old me.
I think people have a purpose and if you following your purpose things would work out.
You’re a blessing to me.
I hope so.
The video at first I was like, nah you know, I don’t want to tell because everybody is going to know my business but I don’t care about that anymore I’m past all of that because if I can do something or say something to help somebody else just like you’re helping somebody I’m gonna do it.
I’m thinking today the biggest thing you’re going to do is there’s somebody in the situation or somebody’s hitting on them and you’re they’re gonna take your message and go I’m not going to get hit on anymore. I’m not going to let someone take my smile.
Yes, yes, six years.
But you’re set. I think you see you’re like you’re I’m just so proud of it like I know you’re going to. You haven’t seen yourself yet other than just a mirror, but when you get home and you’re able to have conversation you’re gonna go WOW. And it’s gonna make you want to do all the things that you normally pass on like, it’s not worth it, oh that’s not good enough, I’ll find my people oh he’s a good guy. I’m telling you I see it too many times they always come out of there they bloom and I can’t wait to see you.
Oh my God.
You’re smile is amazing. It means the world we’re gonna wrap it up today guys. There’s two messages here. One, just don’t let anybody take your smile. I think things have a purpose and I came here for a reason and I hope that you get that. The second thing we tell them is we’re gonna put all that behind us. We’re going forward.
We got, you’ve got a lot of plans, you’re gonna…
…Send pictures to your mom.
You’re gonna be probably making Facebook posts and Instagram posts and Choir posts, and all I ask is just send me one.
I will I can’t wait we’re gonna get some more pictures and we’re gonna break it up.
The fact is it’s not so much about how great it is it’s that you no longer have to worry about it standing out. I know but look at this though even if I don’t do a half-smile it is so lined up with my gum…
That is perfect! Yeah!
Let’s get one for mom. Hey mom!
We hear countless stories from clients in area like Jacksonville, FL, Charlotte, NC, Nashville, TN, Memphis, TN, Baltimore, MD, Louisville, KY, Atlanta, GA, Virginia Beach, VA, Raleigh, NC, Miami, FL, New Orleans, LA, Tampa, FL, Lexington, KY, Greensboro, NC, Orlando, FL, Durham, NC, Saint Petersburg, Norfolk, VA, Winston-Salem, NC, Hialeah, FL, Chesapeake, VA, Baton Rouge, LA, Richmond, VA, Brimingham, AL, Fayetteville, NC, Montgomery, AL, and Columbus, GA
Hi guys, I’m just doing a little video for you all about Press-On Veneers in the UK and basically I went to…I went to a dentist and I wanted the snap on smile and basically they quoted me fifteen hundred pounds which is quite a lot…So, because I have okay teeth anyway I weren’t willing to wreck them, you know? I mean, and so I found these amazing people online called Press-On Veneers UK and basically they send you the mold.
Kicked out yourself and as you thought, like oh, they’re going to be a bit dodge or they’re gonna be a bit dodgy and stuff like that. Cuz it online business and they’re based in America I thought of the UK they don’t have this kind of stuff or anything of that.So I went and intrigued and researched about it but I found there wasn’t a hell of a lot on the internet about people who have bought Press-On Veneers over the UK.So, I thought great okay, do I risk it so I thought what it’s like fraction of the price of what Snap on Smile costs. Which is about like a say fifteen quid for snap on and he’s only charging five hundred pounds…Which is amazing, but they do take a hell of a lot time to come back because they’re from America. But they’re hell of a lot worth it when they did come back I wasn’t happy with them because they were quite big.So they were the customer service on the website on Press-On Veneers they have a live chat thing on their website where you can like click and chat them. But anything, any problems you have, and they’re really lovely. So I chat to them and they said I’ll send them back with some new molds.Because they send you three new mold kits when they send your veneers back. In case anything goes wrong and you need to send it back. So I did and they’ve sent it back to me right now. So I’ll show you what they come in they come in a little container like this. Okay?They tell you need to put them in water for about a minute or so before you put them in. But that’s about it, really. So all you have to do then after they’ve cleaned out that this is what you get. It’s like a little art and then all you do is just clip it onto your own teeth, and voila! They’re on!Yes, I’m kind of finding that hard to speak with them in at the moment. So I had them for a couple of days but I’ve spoken to the team on their website. On the live chat system, which is amazing, they said your that your mouth needs to get used to them. Which I’m hoping will be okay, but I love them, and it’s so much cheaper than veneers. And it’s great because you can’t you don’t have to wait at all time.You can eat with them in drink with them in as long as it’s not very hard chewy foods. And, they’re great. I recommend them to anyone really and I’m quite surprised that most people, not everyone you can know about them. I’ve had quite a lot of response from my friends telling me where you got them from?They look bad all this kind of stuff so I recommend them. I shall put all details at the end of this video and I hope you enjoy. Bye!
Clients call us every day asking where Brighter Image Lab locations are or how they can find a Brighter Image Lab location near them. In this article, we will answer that question and give a brief history of who we are.
Where is Brighter Image Lab Located?
The simple answer is online. Brighter Image Lab can trace its beginnings to a small teeth whitening company in 1997. Since then, it has grown into a global company serving clients all over the world. From our website at brighterimagelab.com we collect orders world wide and ship them from our lab in Fort Worth, Texas.

From our website at brighterimagelab.com we collect orders world wide and ship them from our lab in Fort Worth, Texas.
Can I Visit Your Fort Worth Brighter Image Lab Location?
There really is no benefit to visiting our Brighter Image Lab location in Fort Worth. The majority of the office is our corporate center. Our lab requires a specific dress code and safety equipment which we cannot provide to visitors. We do answer our calls, chats and tickets with the same level of care as we would if we could see you face to face. Our Smile Representatives will also walk you through making impressions over the phone or will gladly direct you to our instructional video.
Imagine needing to change your smile. However, after going to the dentist, you receive a dental treatment plan that’s more expensive than your car. Instead of searching for the Brighter Image Lab cost, you do what most people do: fold up the treatment plan and set it aside, and continue to deal with the pain of a bad smile. Many people are left in this predicament and their hopes are gone.
A Smile Makeover should not cost $10,000 or more. The Lab Direct Process from Brighter Image Lab is specifically designed to save you thousands. Compare the cost to Invisalign dentists charging up to $8000 for adult braces. Our Instant alternatives are only $795!
Brighter Image Lab Cost Challenges the Dental Industry
“At Brighter Image Lab, we didn’t set out to challenge the dental industry.” says Bil Watson, Director of Brighter Image Lab.
“We saw our clients struggling with severe problems, and we saw that most of them were out of options. We didn’t spend thousands of hours to painstakingly develop revolutionary new products because we wanted to.”
In the past, people turned to dentists as the sole source of information for a smile solution. With the advancement of the internet, many people are now looking beyond the dental industry for less expensive alternatives.
For most, a real solution just is not attainable. Dental veneers, dentures, and implants are “high end” products within the dental industry and most people aren’t looking for a “high end” product. They need an affordable answer to allow them to smile again
The Brighter Image Lab Cost Created A Solution
In 2010, Brighter Image Lab created the Press On Veneers to answer the demand for these affordable products. In the beginning, it was a struggle. No one had created a product like this without a dentist, and it wasn’t easy.
The consensus from early clients was, “It’s not perfect, but will you just keep trying? I need this more than you know.”
Brighter Image Lab continued to work on design and made investments in software, technology, packaging and streamlining the process to where they are today. The results from keeping the Brighter Image Lab cost low are amazing.
Now, in a turn of events, dentists are sending their patients to Brighter Image Lab, especially since the introduction of the signature BilVeneers product in 2017. The industry changed because one man saw a need and transformed it into an opportunity.
New Life Smile
Brighter Image Lab is now looking to provide a free solution to those unable to afford even their low cost. Clients who submit their “Smile Story” online are considered by the board to then receive a product from Brighter Image Lab absolutely free thanks to generous donations from online donors.
Mr Watson sums it up best, “When people ask us why we did it, we tell them we did it because somebody had to.”
The latest craze in removable veneers is a company called Instasmile, but is it right for you? When you compare Brighter Image Lab vs Instasmile, we think you might consider us. Let’s explore why.
Brighter Image Lab vs Instasmile
When we first started hearing from clients about Instasmile, they thought they had purchased Press On Veneers at a reduced rate. These discount veneers are lacking in quality, design, and function in our opinion. While we feel our Press On Veneers are a bargain, they continue to be priced from $795. No company can offer you a lower cost for the same quality product as Press On Veneers.
Quality or Price
Too many of Instasmile clients will troll our satisfied clients on YouTube trying to convince people to purchase their products. They all claim it is the exact same thing with a lower price.
The fact is that in every instance we see in hand and on video, we believe our product is more durable, feature a better design, and look more realistic than Instasmile offerings. We admit, their price is lower than ours. Do you really want to sacrifice quality for price on a contrivance you put in your mouth?
Outsourced or Lab Direct
Many clients reported that they had to send their Instasmile impressions to the United Kingdom for an inordinate amount of time before they received their order. We design and make all of our Press On Veneers and BilVeneers in our lab.
We can’t say whether Instasmile does all of the work in their “lab”. They say they do, but a quick check of their Chicago office seemed to be only a forwarding address where their employee sent impressions to the United Kingdom.
Do You Finance?
Some people can afford more than $25 a week for teeth covers. If this is you, and you don’t mind the way Instasmile products look, then by all means, buy their product.
Financing is available to those clients who have no means to purchase even the small cost of our Press On Veneers. Our third party provider is always happy to assist those who are unable or unwilling to purchase their new smile.
Since partnering with the New Life Smile charity, Brighter Image Lab is now offering the opportunity to clients to receive a set of Press On Veneers for free, thanks to online donors.
Hi YouTubers, it’s Natalie. So I have quite the story to tell you. Um, okay the last video, if you watched it, I um I rated my last pair of Press On Veneers through Brighter Image Lab. You know, I explained to you how I love them. How I rated them I think a ten out of ten. And you know what they were fantastic as far as the crass, craftsmanship, but I ended up not being entirely happy. And I’ll explain why.So that one tooth, if you saw the video you know what I’m talking about, that this one tooth here was still bothering me. Even with the alterations that I personally made. So yeah, and then the length literally the teeth were too long for my mouth. So speaking with them in was terrible. It was, um, it was definitely a challenge. And I know regardless with veneers or whatever the case may be I am going to have, you know, the slur.What, you know, what have you but it was bad so with these pair. I just got them bottom about week ago, they’re a lot shorter. I noticed that I can speak a lot clearer, better than the last pair. They fit perfectly nice and tight nice and snug they even managed to kind of get the, you know, the fang appearance. A little pointy. I still rate them 10 out of 10.
Getting It Right
Remember it is hard to go off of impressions and then get them a hundred percent, you know, perfect. But I can’t complain it’s been a long, long ride let me tell you. I’ve been dealing with Brighter Image Lab since January and I’m just now in June really finalizing this. I can say that I am happy. You know I do feel confident even with the other ones that I had.I wasn’t obviously entirely happy but with each Press On Veneers through Brighter Image Lab you know I saw progress. So that’s what gave me hope. So I, I don’t, I hope I don’t discourage anyone. It is a process though some people to get it right this first round. Some people, you know, take a little longer and I’m very meticulous about things. And you know what at the end of the day though I’m happy.
A Veneer I Can Live With
As you can tell, you have to be able to tell, these Press On Veneers through Brighter Image Lab are shorter. They’re, you know, even the feel of them. I’m doing this not because I’m pushing them up, but because the ridges. You know the the lines in between the tooth seem so real and it feels real where the other ones kind of felt kind of like just straight.Like it’s hard to explain. I don’t want to get into it. I really don’t want to make a long video. Just want to let you know that I am happy.Last pair, promise I still give it a thumbs up. I still rate them a 10. I still rate the customer service a 10, because since January they never once gave me an attitude or made me feel like, yo why does she continue to call? Or we can’t satisfy her, she’s like a dead-end case. They didn’t make me feel that way at all.
So this is it guys, and by the way I’m in bed. I figured, you know what? Let me just make a video. So sorry, I have family guy in the background. Nice and tight. I really don’t know what else to say, but this is it.I love the feel of the Press On Veneers through Brighter Image Lab. They feel surreal. I don’t know if you guys can tell my speech. I don’t know compared to the last video, you’ll be the judge. In the last video you guys were brutally honest, which I appreciate it. But I know I saw a couple comments where you know you guys were questioning why I spoke that way or you know said comments like they look horse like. I totally agreed honestly even with these there’s a little certain look to it but it’s a lot more tolerable than the last pair.They were definitely way too long and perhaps I’ll make another video you know to compare the last pair to the to these. Who knows? But yeah this is my smile and I won’t do it before and after. Not necessary.Just view my last video. Subscribe if you’d like, comment any questions, concerns or compliments. I don’t know whatever.Let me know. Okay? Bye!
The following is a client’s Brighter Image Lab review. It is written in sections and chronicles his experience with the Lab Direct Process.
12 May 2016 – Brighter Image Lab Review – Researching The Options
First off I absolutely love the community here at Real Self and I believe that it’s my obligation at minimum to to do a Brighter Image Lab Review for my upcoming veneers.
Prior to ordering my upcoming Snap on veneers I had been planning on getting veneers for the last 8 months. After doing much needed research I had planned on getting 4 veneers done in Vancouver (approx. $5500) or heading to Cancun from a well respected doctor ( 6 veneers with flight and hotel approx. $4000).
Just like any procedure there is always the chance that something can happen, local or abroad and I wanted to make sure that I made the choice that would mitigate most of those risks. I had thought about long term requirements about veneers and started doing research on the methods in treating cavities and other dental issues that could arise once you already had veneers.
This along with the next procedure in getting more veneers after 10-15 years. Personally I really don’t like the idea of shaving down any of my teeth for the veneers. Some people may be okay with it but the thought of having my sensitivity gone in my front teeth makes me nervous and I also don’t like having the chances of having complications and not being able to reverse the operation.
Brighter Image Lab Review – Choosing to Buy Lab Direct
So I decide the Brighter Image Lab snap on veneers would be a good option. I have to admit that their is a fair amount of negative comments and reviews on Brighter Image Lab. That being said it looks like most of the Brighter Image Lab reviews come from:
A. Customers who did not properly create impressions and that expected a refund (custom products in any industry never give refunds because they cant do anything with them).
B. Customer thought these veneers were going to be durable enough to replace broken, old teeth and use them like full on crowns or legit veneers.
C. Competition posting Brighter Image Lab reviews pretending to be angry customers.
D. The customers thought the veneers look fake and the reason for this is because of the shock value. When you get new veneers, crowns, dentures etc, they look way different from your normal teeth….the key to this is though that other people don’t know that.
Brighter Image Lab Review – Researching the Company
All this being said I am being optimistic that these are going to a nice cosmetic add on and so far am looking for the pros in this company (just being honest). I reviewed all the fine notes on the Brighter Image Lab website and they offer:
– Two times you may ship back and have them adjust the veneers if you need to. I can see how this would be frustrating especially if you waited 30 business days but its all on the website. So I can expect this to happen potentially.
– 2 year warranty on manufacture defects.
– Extended 3 year warranty. You send them back for any reason at all.
So far, I touched based with an online chat operator (also have a number to call) and she was awesome. The reason I contacted them was because my payment was declined. I found out that because pricing is in USD they were unable to accept my E-Cheque. This was all good because they sent me a Paypal link instead. I also chose to opt in getting the 3 payment plan options so I didn’t have to pay all upfront.
I ordered the product 2 days ago and the unit is on its way. FedEx says I should receive it tomorrow but I wont be home so I expect to pick it up on the weekend or Monday. I am expecting the impressions so I will continue this Brighter Image Lab review, take photos and let you know how the process goes!
15 May 2016 – Brighter Image Lab Review – Receiving The Impression Kit
I just received my impression it. I came within 3 days, happy with that. The impression kit is very straight forward. You watch a number of videos to ensure you know how to do it and also have a practice impression just in case you make a mistake (didn’t even use it).
Once I finished the impression I sent the 2 impressions that I made back with the return shipping label. The Fedex website says they should be receiving my impressions by the end of tomorrow. Interested to see how long I will be waiting to have the veneers sent to me. Exciting times!
Once I receive the veneers I will continue this Brighter Image Lab review, take photos and see what everyone thinks!
16 May 2016 – Brighter Image Lab Review – The Lab Receives Impressions
After I sent the impressions they received them in about 2 business days. Happy with that.
The next working weekday they sent me an email and text saying that I had an issue with payment, so I called right away. They mentioned that I did not pay for the second portion of what I owed so I would need to pay for it. I was under the impression that I had 30 days to pay for the second part but none-the-less all good. I can see why they would want payment in full or else they may have a bunch of un-paid custom impression molds made without full payment, lol. Should hear back tomorrow to insure that they have received my photos of my teeth and the waiting game begins.
4 Jun 2016 – Brighter Image Lab Review on Snap On Veneers
So in total I received my snap on veneers about 14 business days from when I sent my impressions to there lab. Mine fit perfect and have no annoying pieces that scratch my gums and they also don’t feel loose which is nice. I received these little grip dots that you can put on the veneers to prevent any looseness, but I do not need to them. Below are photos that I recently had taken (I think they look even more natural in real time).
Overall Review on Brighter Image Lab and Snap On Veneers:
So I jumped into ordering these pretty quick as I was ready to purchase veneers for 5k and wanted something immediately. After placing the order I found some reviews and began worrying because there was some complaints. From the first moment I spoke to a customer service rep, however, they were outstanding. My brother also ordered these veneers and they were amazing with him. He also sent another set of impressions in. They sent him a new mold within 2 business days free of charge. The veneers came fast and they fit perfect. Yes I am acclimating to them. For me these are a cosmetic fix and I am very happy with the results. Overall take your time with the impressions, and ask questions if you need to. You should expect these to look different than your normal teeth and you will become acclimated to them.
FIVE STARS ALL AROUND. I AM COMPLETELY HAPPY. IF ANYONE HAS QUESTIONS FEEL FREE TO SEND ME A MESSAGE.
A recent press release blasted all over the world.. All about how the UK family team is going to jail for illegally selling teeth whitening products.
UK People – Please Wake Up – Please Don’t Be This Stupid…
The release goes on to tell about how they made 3.4 million pounds. It asserts they had a nice big home, and 7 luxury cars. That’s nothing compared to what Kylie Jenner must be making off her 75 million Instagram followers directing them to HI smile teeth whiteners. Do you really believe this product is within the legal limits of UK laws? Can you really believe this company is turning down any and all orders from the UK? Will you believe UK investigations will spend another 800,000£ stopping these buyers? No because it’s a scam.
Do you not see or just not care? This is all about The General Dental Council (G.D.C.) working to protect the profits of the dentist while keeping the poor from affording whiter teeth. It’s a SCAM…
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
As for being a Major Health Risk, this is just purely BS! There are 10 articles describing how safe teeth whitening actually is for every article claiming teeth whitening is unsafe.
Just as shocking is a UK criminal investigation team spends over 800£ (Pounds) just to build this case. In court, prosecutors accused the pair of supplying the public with dangerous products that could cause chemical burns. What’s crazy is that we never see the so called victims. We do not see them because there are not any real cases.
Look at the data – over one million Brits have bought Illegal Teeth Whitening Produces Online or in person. Now let’s look at this 3.4 million sales number for a second. If the average sale was 100£ (which I believe is too high but for easy math sake) Let’s divide 3,400,000.00 divided by 100 = 34,000 clients. That’s 34,000 UK people that should be harmed but they only tell you of one harmed person. Begs the question – what happened to the other 34,499 clients. My guess is the are all hiding with a whiter smile.
Selective Enforcement of Teeth Whitening Laws
What more interesting is that there are at least 50 companies offer the same products on UK Amazon or UK eBay or Google or Bing, but eBay, Google or Amazon is not worried about going to jail.
In short over one million Britt’s are already buying (so called) illegal teeth whitening products online and the daily news papers profit from the story while at the same time offering ads about Kylie Jenner who is also making money by directing people to other teeth whitening companies. But wait it gets even better! then these companies use the royal mail to deliver their so called illegal teeth whitening products directly to the people’s door steps and it’s no foul for the buyer to receive the (so called illegal) teeth whitening product that the UK family is in jail for selling. None of these companies and registered in the UK and I’m betting none of them are paying V.A.T. like this Jailed Family did.
Citizens of the UK – Wake Up to the Teeth Whitening Fraud
People please wake up – the UK G.D.C. wants you to believe that the only safe levels are .01 percent or less. That’s the real fraud- If you want to put this family in jail for being competition against dentist then simply make it clear. Any average minded person would not accept saying their teeth whitening products are unsafe. Nothing we want or do would be accepted or legal by this same standard. Not walking, riding a bike or driving, not drinking alcohol or wine. not getting a tattoo or body piercing, all tanning salons would be shut down.
The statement that Teeth Whitening is a dental treatment that is only legally administered by trained dentists. This is more BS! there is no more dentistry in teeth whitening than a person doing tongue piercing is practicing medicine and if you can’t see this then you deserve to be poor with yellow teeth.
This Family should not be in jail for being competition against the General Dentist Council and Dentist. So again, you must be wondering – how are the hospitals, the ambulances, the dental clinics not over ran- they are not over ran because these people are just super freaking happy with their whiter smiles and that they did not have to pay the dentist huge profit and that alone will make you smile brighter.
Hi guys, um, so this is just a review that I’m gonna do on my Brighter Image Lab Press On Veneers that I got. I got them about a week and a half ago and I’ve been kind of slow about getting to a video. But I really did want to do a review because when I went on YouTube check them out I didn’t really see a lot of reviews.So I’m kind of adding to reviews to help you guys if you do decide to get them because if you look at the smile of mine…
My Brighter Image Lab Review
Basically they look completely natural and the process was super easy any one I talked to was super accommodating. Probably got a little tired of me because on the little texts to ask questions thing on their webpage. I asked probably ten different times about how is the process going. Is there anything I need to do? Do I need to send it any more pictures? Anything like that and they were always willing to help me and it was just kind of they were really accommodating to anything that I might have needed.Um but I’ll take them out so you can see what my teeth look like beforehand, but just one more idea of what they did look like before.My lips are chap.And when I take them out, sorry kind of gross. You can see I had a lot of discoloration on my teeth and I have silver caps on both sides. I also have silver caps on the bottom so I am super happy with how they turned out.
Getting My Bottom Arch
So I’m looking to kind of now I’m going to look into getting my bottom arch done to cover those. Because I do really like how my top arch turned out and I’m really happy with it.But back on my teeth, basically yeah I mean they’re straight. I did have braces for three years but I just have a lot of discoloration. I had a root canal there so my tooth was two different colors. That was a root canal so the tooth is entirely fake.
How I got Started
So it was just kind of I find these online and I was like oh that would be a great way to kind of whiten my teeth up. Because of my fake teeth I am unable to use like white strips or anything like that and my teeth are undersized.They’re about three percent under sized according to the brighter image people. So this way, I kind of pop these back in. I get the size that my teeth are supposed to be and they’re all white and they’re gonna stay white as long as I take care of them.Obviously and I love how they look.
As for review questions like can I eat with them in? I can eat with them in, I have before but most of the time I choose not to. Just because I want to preserve the quality of them. But if I was at like a business lunch or anything like that or with like a potential employer, I would be totally fine eating with them in. I just normally chosen not to just because I’m comfortable taking them out in front of my friends and I have no problem with that.Then as for being able to talk with them in I’m sure you can tell I can talk very easily. I have had them for a week and a half. But like I said earlier I had braces for three years. So I was already used to the idea of kind of like retainer.So I had no troubles even initially talking with them in. But as for the retainer, these are way thinner than my retainer. They feel like I have nothing on. I never even noticed them. Sometimes I forget that there and I’m like ah where is it but they’re actually in. And they’re, it’s really thin and I just love how it feels.
Review Final Verdict
I love how it looks. I’m so happy with how it’s turning out like I said I’m I want to get my bottom arch done so bad now cuz I love them so much.And I’m just so much more confident in myself and it’s really just kind of changing who I am. And because I used to walk around kind of like this and shy and kind of hide myself. But now I’m happy to talk to anyone and give them a big old smile.And I’m just my confidence is increasing so much so I’m really happy with how they turned out.But that’s basically my review. I mean if you want to see one more time. That’s with them in. I’ll, see all my silver teeth which was what one of my biggest insecurities was my silver teeth showing in like pictures or anything like that.And then back in they look like perfect teeth.
Thank You Brighter Image Lab
So thank you so much Brighter Image Lab you really have changed my life, and I couldn’t be happier!
Introducing Bilistic Pro-Series Tooth Polisher For Dramatic At-Home Results
Just in time for summer – The ONLY beauty gift every woman wants, but does not have. To prove it – ask any woman you know right now, “Would you like to polish and gloss your teeth yourself?” The answer is almost certainly “YES!” Now ask her why does she doesn’t have a professional tooth polisher? The overwhelming answer is “I don’t know where or how to get one.”
Brighter Image Lab has spent the last two years developing the Bilistic Tooth Polisher – a Professional Grade Tooth Polisher. This polisher has the same or better performance as those used in dental polishing.
“It’s finally time a professional polisher is available to the woman who wants to enhance her image. She can do it when she wants to, not just by appointment. Until now, professional polishers used by dentists were too expensive. The polishers that were available just did not perform well enough to compete with the dentists’ results. Every person deserves the feeling of perfectly cleaned and polished teeth and a glossy smile. Now, as a result of our efforts, it’s here,” said Bil Watson, director of Brighter Image Lab.
Brighter Image Lab is also introducing a New Teeth Cleaning Serum Called Infusion. This serum is designed to clean, detoxify, whiten, brighten and polish teeth to the glossiest shine ever. The polisher uses the Infusion Serum to infuse the teeth’s tubular pores, cleaning deep into the pulp of the tooth. At the same time, it brightens and polishes the tooth surface to a gloss that shines better than ever before.
Brighter Image Lab is an online dental lab. Open since 1997, it specializes in Lab Direct smile makeovers with No Dentist Visit. The lab is one of the first to offer professional lab direct teeth whitening online. Brighter Image Lab produces custom fitted bleaching trays and Hi-Intensity Bleaching Gels. It is also the first to develop and design the removable dental veneers specifically online. The company is very proud of their new additions which are the Bilistic Pro Series Teeth Polisher and Infusion Professional Teeth Cleaning Serum.

Hey guys, I wanted to talk to you today about Brighter Image Veneers.
Brighter Image Veneers for My Wedding
I purchased mine about eight months ago. Honestly didn’t have high hopes for them at all. I actually purchased them for my wedding. Just got married a month ago today.
I have a rather large gap between my teeth. I’ll take my veneers out right now. Mind the spit. So this is what my natural teeth look like. As you can see I have a large gap and I have a baby tooth that I cannot get rid of.
So I purchased the extremely white colored veneers because I do bleach my teeth so I figured why not? Especially for my wedding, but as you can see they look like real teeth.
The Brighter Image Veneers Process
You use a startup kit to press into and you send it off to the lab so they make them a perfect fit for you. The first set I got they did not fit very well at all. So I did send those back they sent me a new kit, free actually! I did I think six or seven kits before I finally had the right set sent to them.
My Brighter Image Veneers Result
I’ll show you what they look like in. So I do have a little bit of an overbite with them but it’s not bad. I do have really thick front teeth anyway so I’m gonna have an overwrite with them but it’s not bad at all. Um, I’ve been wearing them consistently after the wedding.So I’ve got my speech down pretty well. I do have a hard time with s’s, Whistle a lot, but I love them. I feel like a princess, and on my wedding day I felt like an absolute princess.Um, I do not recommend getting the bright, bright color if you don’t bleach your teeth because you could tell they were fake at first. Um, they haven’t really changed color, but I have been bleaching my teeth more frequently. So they are a better match.I will show you a picture of my wedding. Um, if there’s not to bad of a glare on it. I felt like an absolute princess. They look so real. Got so many compliments and I love them.
My Advice About Brighter Image Veneers
I hope that anyone that struggles um with their smile and they don’t feel comfortable in public and they can’t financially afford to get their teeth fixed. I recommend getting these as a temporary fix. I’m in love with them.I actually work in a call center. I’m a technician and I’m on the phone consistently and I don’t feel like I struggle speaking throughout the day. I don’t feel like I have a terrible lisp and I haven’t really had anyone come up to me and tell me that they don’t like them. Or that they look fake. I get compliments all the time.So again, if you struggle with your smile, or you feel uncomfortable, or you feel by your embarrassed. You don’t want to go in public, you’re shy, you’re timid, you’re, you become an introvert because you can’t stand the way that people look at you? I really I recommend trying them.It does cost a little bit, but it’s a lot cheaper than cosmetic surgery.
The Conclusion About Brighter Image Veneers
So again, I purchase mine from Brighter Image and they are Press-On Veneers and I am madly in love with them. So again, with, mind the spit, without.They have changed my life. And as you can see I don’t sound much different with them in or without. You can barely tell and they’re super easy to put in, super easy to take out. I love them. They have changed my life, and again if you struggle I really recommend you looking into them because they are amazing!Thanks guys, have a great day.
When Dee walked in to the corporate office, she was looking for a job. She was looking for a way to earn enough money to rent an apartment, to be able to visit her kids again. The moment Dee walked in the door, it changed the direction of not only her life, but the direction of Brighter Image Lab.
The Transformation of Brighter Image Lab
A transformation occurred when Dee Erwin shared her story with the staff at Brighter Image Lab. She was homeless and had lost custody of her children. Every attempt to get back on her feet was met with rejection and ridicule.
“Temp agencies wouldn’t send me out to any good jobs. Anything in an office environment was out of the question. I couldn’t even get work as a cashier, because people didn’t want their customers to see my teeth. Even with my years of management experience, they would put me in entry-level overnight positions or have me work with the janitorial staff. It just became very depressing.”
Her embarrassing smile forced her into menial jobs making low wages and kept her from achieving her dream of one day getting visitation privileges with her children. Her life’s path was was at a dead-end.
Bill Watson, Director of Brighter Image Lab, recounts the day he met Dee.
“When we first spoke with Dee, we could tell that there was a lot more going on than just a problem with her smile. You could see there was a spark hidden somewhere, and it was just covered up by years of hardship. It’s unfortunate, but it’s something we see quite often. People with bad teeth eventually begin to segregate themselves, and it’s a hard thing to pull yourself out of. So we wanted to do more. We knew we could help.”
Brighter Image Lab Transforms Dee’s Life
Brighter Image Lab did more than help. Mr. Watson set the designers to work on improving her smile. Meanwhile, his team at the corporate office partnered with several local businesses to surprise Dee with a full makeover. Dee was transformed in front of cameras from a homeless woman with no foreseeable future into a professional business woman with the ability to pursue a career and her dream of seeing her children again.
“They bought me new clothes and sent me to a high-end salon. It is just incredible, and I feel complete with my amazing new smile! Putting my veneers in for the first time, totally overwhelmed me. Everyone in the room was crying, including me. It was one of those ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ experiences.”
Brighter Image Lab Partners with New Life Smile
Moved by the experience, Mr. Watson began asking people on brighterimagelab.com for their “Smile Story”, and received thousands of submissions. Searching after business hours, he found a suitable charity, New Life Smile, to partner with Brighter Image Lab to help people like Dee achieve the smile they deserve, but often cannot afford.
“To tell someone like Dee that they need to come up with $17,000 is the same thing as telling they they need to come up with $17 million. It’s an equally unattainable number. People need a reasonably-priced alternative that doesn’t include dentistry; that’s what we do at Brighter Image Lab. It’s not just about changing smiles, it’s literally changing lives.”
Looking to improve the smiles of under-served people worldwide, New Life Smile has helped nearly 100 people to date. New Life Smile is actively seeking new applicants to help as well as new donors to help fund these new smiles. They are on the forefront of changing the world, one smile at a time.
Snap-On Smile Reviews and Frequently Asked Questions
In the suburbs of Chicago, from Skokie to Glenview to Wilmette to Northbrook, Snap-On Smile reviews and questions fuel debate regarding the effects and reliability of Snap-On Smile vs. traditional porcelain veneers. As a result, Chicago dentist, Dr. William Cohen, this #Chicago cosmetic dentist works to clarify the answers to many of the most troubling questions posed by possible Snap-On Smile and Lumineers clients. His expert opinion for questions ranging from Snap On Smile For 2 Missing Teeth to Snap-On Smile Reviews Online highlights some of the more puzzling aspects for folks in Chicago whose #Snap On Smile broke and left them wondering what their options were.
Especially relevant, Dr. Cohen replies to the question:
Before you decide to invest in another Snap-On Smile, remember that a Snap-On Smile lasts longer when it is only used for special occasions or perhaps on the weekends. Everyday use will wear it out quickly.

Problems With Veneers
In fact, most dentists will quickly explain that the Snap-On Smile should be worn for “special occasions” because they want their clients to purchase the permanent porcelain veneers. However, even Dr. Cohen had to contend with a question regarding problems with traditional veneers from a client who now wanted to cover them up with a Snap-On Smile. Sandy, on Dr. Cohen’s blog, wishes she could go back to a Snap-On Smile because of problems with her veneers.
have been wanting to do something about my smile for years. Most of the research I did was about the snap on smile so that’s what I told my dentist I wanted. He convinced me to get veneers instead because they look better and last longer. I got 8 veneers and they do look better but they are not really lasting. I just got the veneers in November and one of them fell off twice. Now another veneer looks loose. If I had a snap on smile it would be done and I wouldn’t have these problems. I should not have let my dentist convince me to get veneers. Can I get a snap on smile over the veneers? I would definitely get them from a different dentist this time. I don’t want to be talked into something I don’t want again. Thank you. Sandy
Curated from Can I Get A Snap On Smile Over My Veneers?
A Temporary Removable Veneer
At Brighter Image Lab, we have long-contended that the Press On Veneer is not a substitute for natural teeth. While some dentists claim that the Snap-On Smile is a fix for missing teeth, we’ve yet to see a dentist that could actually bill your insurance company for a Snap-On Smile and declare it a replacement for teeth. It does not restore teeth, and it does not replace them. Perhaps the most humorous, and the most accurate description of the purpose of a Snap-On Smile comes from another dental blog that compares the Snap-On Smile to a wig:
[Snap-On Smile] perfect for special occasions, or even worn daily. I got a little chuckle out of watching this infomercial. This appliance reminds me of someone bald or with thinning hair fitted for a wig. Is Snap-on Smile a good alternative over permanent procedures that involve cosmetic dentistry?

Traditional Dental Veneers and a Perfect #Hollywood Smile
The Real problem with traditional dental veneers has little to do with how they function or their performance. Who determines what a normal, esthetically pleasing smile looks like is the real issue. America struggled for decades with defining “image” as a marketplace bent on exploiting peoples’ flaws for economic gain. The danger of this national obsession has become systemic since the days of Twiggy. Fashion magazines offer Photoshopped perfection as the standard to which we should aspire. The effects of this insidious marketing made their way into breast implants and the definition of a Hollywood smile. Carving their bodies and their teeth, people use their resources to chase a false picture of their “perfect” self. People make investments in the tens of thousands of dollars at their dentist to get the “perfect” smile.
Jane’s Smile Makeover
This message has become so endemic that people with nice smiles are convinced only a “perfect” Hollywood smile is acceptable. One particularly relevant example of this is highlighted in a June 2015 article entitled “Saving Jane’s Smile.” Gary Nankin, DDS discusses how he “saved” the smile of a patient who was not content with her first set of #porcelain veneers. According to Dr. Nankin, Jane was unhappy with her veneers:
About a year prior to her visit to my office, Jane got porcelain veneers. Her previous dentist placed them on her six top front teeth (numbers 6 to 11). From the very beginning, she was unhappy with them. She said that they just never felt like they belonged. The veneers felt bulky, flat, uneven. Most of the time they were so uncomfortable that she just wanted to “rip them out”. In addition, food frequently got stuck behind them. She thought it looked like the surface of the teeth had “divots” in them.

The high bar of “perfection”
The woman deemed a less than perfect set of veneers for which she had certainly paid at least $10,000.00, Dr. Nankin outlined his approach to “saving” Jane’s smile:
The sequence outlined for Jane’s treatment was as follows: 1. Endodontic referral for treatment of tooth number 15, followed by a composite core build-up. 2. Periodontal therapy in both the anterior region and upper left to achieve optimal tissue health. 3. Wax up of maxillary and mandibular teeth with the plan to place all ceramic restorations on her teeth. (4 to 15, and 22 to 27) Including the construction of a Sil-Tech® PVS index of both the maxillary and mandibular wax ups. This aids in the construction of provisional restorations and utilizing the general shape of LVI Smile Catalog, “Natural.” 4. Preparation of maxillary teeth and placement of permanent restorations. 5. Placement of dental implant by the periodontist followed by preparation of mandibular teeth and placement of permanent restorations. 6. Restore the now fully-healed and osseointegrated implant in the position of tooth number 30.

The link between self-esteem and self-worth
Regarding a person’s smile, the strong link to self-esteem and self-worth make an imperfect set of teeth a concern. However, the picture in the article clearly illustrates what appears to be a well-constructed and healthy-looking smile. The entire premise is puzzling. How does a dentist promote “saving” a smile that 97% of the people in America would love to show off?
One of the primary reasons cited by an article in The Journal of the American Dental Association makes it clear:
…with the decrease in caries [ tooth decay] prevalence, the focus shifted gradually from functional dentistry to esthetic dentistry. As a result, the perception of tooth appearance in modern society could influence the changes in patients’ needs.

Functional Dentistry loses out to esthetics
In other words, patients aren’t visiting the dentist primarily for tooth decay. Therefore, “needs” are more centered on esthetics than functional dentistry. As a result, emphasis has shifted to creating a plan seeking to achieve the perfect smile at huge cost. The previous study details the effects:
Esthetics has become an important aspect of dentistry. Until about the last two decades, clinicians considered esthetics to be far less important than function, structure and biology. Today, however, if a treatment plan does not include a clear view of its esthetic impact on the patient, the outcome could be disastrous.

Capitalizing on the Commerce of Imperfection
How disastrous was not spending tens of thousands of dollars on a second set of veneers for Jane’s smile? Reclassifying “esthetics” as a necessary component of dental care is particularly troubling as we cannot accurately measure or manage it. People trusting professional opinions of dentists are vulnerable to being convinced. Minor, esthetic problems with their smile, they are told, require expensive measures to correct in order to be “normal”. Hence, the real problem with veneers lies in the ever more pervasive use of cosmetic dentistry. Covering up even the smallest flaw in order to capitalize on the dysfunctional body imagery of a vulnerable population. Requiring Jane’s “before” smile to be saved sets a high bar for a “normal” smile. So high, in fact, that natural, God-given teeth can never compete.
The High Cost of Cosmetic Smile Enhancement
A cosmetic smile enhancement should not have to cost a fortune. You decide when and if you are ready for traditional veneers to achieve your perfect smile.
