PopOn Veneers Vs PressOn Veneers The Truth Revealed

Kristy Henderson

Introduction

If you’re in the market for dental veneers, there are many options to choose from. As with any product, some are better than others and some claim to be amazing when they’re actually just a cheap imitation.

In this article, we will discuss a new company called PopOn Smiles, their "veneers" and how they compare to Brighter Image Lab’s PressOn Veneers.

PopOn Smiles

PopOn Smiles was trademarked in June 2020 by a man named Issac Hakimi, who has operated Streamline Dental Lab in New York City since 2006. Less than one month prior to securing the trademark, a domain was registered for the PopOn Veneers website. At the time of writing this article, the site is selling removable veneers for $399 per arch.

The PopOn Veneers website is contributed to a woman exclusively referred to as “Dr. T.” The website offers virtually ZERO information about Dr. T that could reveal her true identity, which has likely made clients suspicious as to what the company may be hiding.

When you have something to hide, nothing helps more than a convincing distraction. An emotional story, for example, has the power to entice and manipulate the audience by appealing to their emotions and distracting them from missing or manipulated information. The PopOn Veneers website features an emotional story about Dr. T that has likely distracted clients from searching for her real identity.

At first glance, the PopOn Veneers website seems convincing, but when you look a little closer, the veil is lifted and the user is left with a single question: What is PopOn Smiles hiding?

While conducting our research, we were faced with the same question, so we went digging.

Who is Dr.T?

The search for Dr. T’s identity was a grueling one. With no information on the website and one letter of a name, we weren’t off to a great start.

Our research team exhausted all resources before turning to Facebook to search for associates of Issac Hakimi. To our surprise, we found that Dr. T wasn’t an associate at all, but Dr. Hakimi’s wife and the mother of his children. Her full identity is Dr. Tamar Schiller Hakimi, and it took multiple people and hours of research to find her. 

The average person doesn’t have hours to track down information that should be made readily available, and they shouldn’t have to. Dr. T’s identity should have been given from the start, but it wasn’t, and you have to ask yourself why. 

Many companies lie, manipulate, and hide information that’s valuable to the consumer. They also mislead clients as to how their products are made.

How are PopOn Veneers made? 

If you’re suspicious of a product, the best thing you can do is find out how it’s made. More often than not, you’ll find the product you’re considering isn’t worth the investment.

In an article published by Inside Dental Technology, Dr. Issac Hakimi claims to use a process known as “milling” at Streamline Dental Lab.

Milling is a machining process that uses rotating, multi-edge cutters to mill a block of material, like zirconia into a desired shape. This process takes place inside an enclosed machine, and expels virtually no debris. Despite this, the PopOn Veneers website features photos of keyboards and desks that appear to be covered in dust from plaster, which is used to make molds intended for thermoforming (a cheap manufacturing technique).

At the time of writing this article, Streamline Dental Lab is looking to hire a thermoforming technician via Indeed. If the company is using a milling machine and digital design to make their "veneers", there should be no need to hire a thermoforming technician. This may make you wonder: Are PopOn Veneers cheaply thermoformed?

Thermoforming vs. 3D Printing 

Many people make the mistake of assuming all dental veneers are made the same. If you’re in the market for a set of dental veneers, it’s important to know the different manufacturing processes and how they can affect your future smile.

While there are multiple ways of producing a dental veneer, thermoforming and 3D printing are two of the most popular techniques used today.

Thermoforming is an outdated manufacturing process and a cheap alternative to 3D printing. With thermoforming, a plastic sheet is heated, formed to the specific shape of a plaster mold and trimmed to create a usable product.

Because the plastic sheets used in thermoforming don’t come thinner than 0.5mm, removable veneers made by this method are sometimes bulky and unnatural looking. They often have poor surface finish, non-uniform thickness and are more prone to malfunctions, as improper thermoforming of plastic disks can cause cracks, breaks and sharp edges.

In contrast to the thermoforming process, 3D printing is a modern manufacturing technique that involves designing an object on the computer and sending instructions to a device that constructs the object layer by layer.

popon

Previously reserved for prototypes, 3D printing now allows for the creation of very complex objects by faithfully reproducing every detail. 3D printers work quickly with increasing precision and customizability.

Dental contrivances made by using this technique are mechanically stronger and more elastic compared to those that are thermoformed. They have been shown to resist 6 times more pressure and produce a more accurate fit.

Any way you look at it, 3D printing is the superior technique. Some companies like Brighter Image Lab use advanced techniques like this on every removable veneer, while others use a cheap thermoforming process that can result in low-quality products.

Many companies who use thermoforming to cut corners aren’t upfront with their clients. In fact, many of them actively try to confuse consumers to get them to purchase an inferior product. For this reason, finding a company with experience can really pay off. Read on to find out how!

Imitation is NOT the sincerest form of flattery

Removable veneers are a relatively new phenomenon in the realm of smile solutions, but some companies have been offering them for years. Brighter Image Lab’s PressOn Veneers, for example, were some of the first removable veneers available. Over the past 20 years, PressOn Veneers have become the leading removable veneers worldwide and have helped over 300,000 people transform their smile.

As with any great product, PressOn Veneers have been cheaply imitated numerous times. Other companies use Brighter Image Lab’s photos, videos and content as their own to mislead clients and make a profit. In turn, those clients receive a low-quality product instead of a perfect set of dental veneers. 

Most recently, a company called PopOn Smile has taken to the internet with a new product called PopOn Veneers. The product’s name, strikingly similar to PressOn Veneers, has likely mislead clients who are looking to order from Brighter Image Lab.

streamline dental lab

The PopOn Veneers website also features images similar to those used by Brighter Image Lab, which usually proves confusing for anyone trying to purchase PressOn Veneers.

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but sometimes it can go too far. If you've seen their website, you may be wondering: Is PopOn Smiles trying to confuse the public?

Brighter Image Lab vs PressOn Smiles 

Over the years, Brighter Image Lab has been cheaply imitated countless times. New removable veneer companies pop up every day with a similar name and a website full of empty promises. One way you can be sure you don’t get taken advantage of is to go with a company that has experience in the industry.

Brighter Image Lab - Celebrating 20 Years in Business

With more than 20 years in the business, Brighter Image Lab has had its fair share of learning experiences. Being one of the first to navigate the dental veneer climate, they learned early on that people are hungry for information.

The company’s website and YouTube channel offer a wealth of information and archived customer reviews. Customer service representatives are also available 24 hours a day to answer questions and address concerns.

Brighter Image Lab understands the power of a great smile and the importance of sharing information. For this reason, they do not use thermoforming systems to make any of their removable veneers and share every step of their unique Lab Direct process on their website.

Unfortunately, not all companies understand the potential of a perfect smile and the value of information sharing. Instead, they cheaply imitate PressOn Veneers with poor material and ineffective techniques and hide  information from clients who just want to smile again.

As one of the newest removable veneer companies, PopOn Smiles has already committed to disabling comments for every one of its YouTube videos and neglecting to fully name its affiliates.

The amount of information pertaining to the company is also extremely limited. There are virtually no customer reviews that aren’t linked directly to the PopOn Veneers website and many of the ones made available are posted by the same people.

With only 7 months under their belt and limited public information, PopOn Smiles is leaving much to be desired in terms of experience and transparency. This lack of experience and information may even leave some clients wondering: Are PopOn Veneers worth it?

PopOn vs PressOn 

If you’re considering dental veneers, you’re probably wondering if they’re worth the investment. Some dental veneers have the potential to change your life and last for years while others tend to fail and disappoint. One way to be sure you’re getting your money’s worth is to compare your options! Here is a comparison between PopOn Veneers and PressOn Veneers:

PopOn

If you go to the PopOn Veneers website and take their eligibility quiz, you will find that candidates are immediately denied if they have less than 6 teeth on the top or bottom arch, suffer from bleeding gums or recession, or have more than 4 missing teeth.

The company also warns against smoking while wearing their removable veneers, because “the heat can distort the shape.” This is interesting because the temperature of tobacco smoke in the mouth is only 86 degrees Fahrenheit for the most part, 12 degrees cooler than the average human body.

PopOn Veneers claims their veneers are made out of co-polyester, which is a plastic that reacts poorly to sunlight and turns yellow with too much exposure. This undesirable reaction can ruin a set of removable veneers that cost hundreds .

Despite the plastic material and undesirable reactions of PopOn Veneers, a set of top and bottom arches retail for almost $600.

PressOn

Brighter Image Lab's PressOn Veneers are available to virtually anyone and have less requirements than most competing brands. The only cases that are deemed ineligible right away are those with no existing teeth or dentures.

PressOn Veneers are digitally designed to compete with porcelain dental veneers and have the power to make your smile look as if it has been completely made over by a cosmetic dentist. They are truly one of a kind and made out of material that is safe and strong.

Each tailor-made PressOn Veneer is artisan hand-crafted and contoured for the most life-like results possible. The unique crystalized resin is designed for unmatched durability and customization and is able to be thinned when necessary without compromising the veneer (unlike cheap thermoformed material).

PressOn Veneers are one of the thinnest removable veneers available and one of the strongest ever made. They’ve been known to last over 5 years and hold up against the wear and tear of everyday life. They're also affordable, with a low starting price of $795 per arch and 100% approval on financing.

Conclusion 

If you’re considering removable veneers, the number one thing you can do is make sure they’re not thermoformed.

There are more advanced processes for making removable veneers which produce a superior product, and Brighter Image Lab uses one to make every single veneer.

Don’t be fooled by pop up companies trying to convince you to pay hundreds for a cheap product. PressOn Veneers are digitally designed and detailed by hand for a superior look and feel and have the power to transform your life in an instant.

3 Affordable Snap On Smiles Alternatives

Bil Watson

Snap On Smiles Alternative Press On Veneers Enters the Market

Does an affordable Snap On Smiles alternative exist? Read on to see how Press On Veneers is changing the landscape of the dental industry.

In 2010, The Daily Mail UK featured a piece on the Snap On Smiles. Touting Snap-on smiles as the latest “dental fast fix,” they begged the question, “Do snap on smiles look fake”? Going over the pros and cons of snap-on smile and its cost, the article featured before and after pictures.

Finding an Alternative that isn't a "dental fix"

However, even the writer admitted to being a little leery to begin with, wondering how fake snap on smiles look. Most importantly, the writer didn’t want a “dental fix”. She wanted her teeth to look better, but never considered a snap on smiles alternative. While people want to cover challenged smiles without resorting to dentistry, no one wants clip on teeth that look ridiculous.

Is $1,800.00 Really Affordable?

The major benefit highlighted in the UK review of Snap On Smile was that it is a removable form of affordable cosmetic dentistry. Through the article, you learn that you are not only paying the dentist to take the impression. The dentist is also sending it to a lab for processing, raising the price for snap on smile. At over $1800 per arch, this seems high for a removable veneer that you just slide over your existing teeth.

Does An Affordable Snap On Smile Alternative Exist?

Surely a Snap On Smile Alternative is much less expensive? With Snap On Smile, you are obviously not paying to have your teeth fixed, so what are you paying for?


Being Comfortable in a Social Setting

Snap On Smiles Alternative works just as well or better

Allowing people to be comfortable in a social setting, temporary teeth covers are perfect for weddings and special events. They do not want teeth replacement or to fix broken teeth. They just want to be able to smile for an evening without being embarrassed. Temporary, removable veneers do nothing to fix your teeth. They merely camouflage broken and discoloured teeth. This gives you what appears to be a white, healthy grin that looks natural and real.

The High Cost of Affordable Dentistry - Snap On Smile

At $1800.00 per arch, the Snap On Smile price is extraordinarily high for a process that does nothing to change your teeth. Now there’s an alternative to Snap On Smile… a product like Snap On Smile that is lab direct and a fraction of the cost of Snap On Smile. Created by Brighter Image Lab, the Press On Veneers mimics the appearance of a perfect smile. It uses cutting edge technology to create a thin, removable, secure smile to show the world. Without going to the dentist office.

Introducing Press-On Veneers by Brighter Image Lab

Available throughout the United States, the UK, Australia, and Mexico, Snap On Smile alternatives help you look great in social settings. Now you have a dental choice.

Opalescence teeth whitening

New Opalescence Teeth Whitening Alternative Gets Results

Bil Watson

How do you know what teeth whitener to choose? Should you choose the one your dentist recommends, such as Opalescence teeth whitening gel?  Or choose the one that has the best price? 

If you want to get from point A to point B… there are always several paths you can take.

The same rings true for when you want to whiten your teeth. A quick search on the Internet will turn up thousands of "best ways to whiten your teeth" results! 

Let’s take a closer look at what the best teeth whitening option is for YOU.

What Is Opalescence teeth whitening?

Opalescence teeth whitening

While this teeth whitening gel is a favorite among dentists… it also means that it comes with “dentists prices”.

Opalescence is a teeth whitening gel that is administered with the guidance of your dentist and contains potassium nitrate and fluoride to help whiten your teeth. 

But why pay dentist prices when you can cut out the “middleman” and get professional level teeth whitening delivered directly to your doorstep?  

It’s all possible when you order Brighter Image Lab's Lab Direct Smile Care System, which includes Pure Hi-Intensity (Non-Blended) Bleaching Gels.

Our clients who have previously used Opalescence teeth whitening have found that our teeth bleaching gel is not only just as good… but BETTER!

Our Lab Direct Process gives YOU the power to transform your teeth from the comfort and care of your own home. It is the most effective at home treatment process you can find because we’ve taken the time and attention needed to design a teeth whitening kit that provides your professional level results from home. Our opalescence teeth whitening gel is the best - of the best teeth whitening products.

What makes our teeth whitening gel a better option for you is:

  • Scientifically designed to deliver exceptional results.
  • Our proven gel formula has helped over 300,000 clients achieve the best smile possible.
  • Our gel has been produced by the same source for the same length of time, and has been tested for safety and effectiveness
  • Formulated for the deepest bleaching possible, going past the surface of the tooth to the pulp.
  • Improves the appearance of your teeth better with no lights or lasers.
  • The secret to the effectiveness of our gel is constant continuous temperature control of our Pure Blended Bleaching Gel. In order to maintain stability, our gel is kept at a consistent temperature. Even after your order is created, we continue to provide cold packs wherever necessary to ensure you receive the gel at the optimal temperature for maximum effectiveness.

NOTHING will get your teeth whiter or last longer!

The truth about snap on smile dentists

This is a Snap On Smile - guys if you're online and you're looking to improve your smile with a snap on smile, I want to tell you a couple things.

New technology makes snap on smile dentists obsolete

You no longer need a cosmetic dentist to help you improve your smile. New technology has made it so easy that the average person can take their own impression with one or two tries. There just no value in paying your dentist hundreds if not thousands of dollars just for him to take your impression. There is no reason to work with the middle man.

They will tell you that they can do it better, but those people still call theirs snap on smiles. We don't call them smiles, we call them snap on veneers, because they are designed to compete with traditional dental veneers.

Are snap on veneers better than snap on smiles?

These are thinner, they are contoured, they are sealed at the gum line. I promise you if you look at our work, I believe it speaks for itself!

1 Star Snap-On Smile Reviews and FAQs Exposed

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 #SnapOnSmile 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 dental 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?
