Press On Veneers by Brighter Image Lab

Snap-On Smile Alternative Press-On Veneers Enters the Market

Does an affordable Snap-On Smile 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 Smile. Touting Snap-on smiles as the latest “dental fast fix,” they begged the question, “Does snap-on smile 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 be a little leery to begin with, wondering how fake snap-on smile would look. Most importantly, the writer didn’t want a “dental fix”. She wanted her teeth to look better, but never considered a snap-on smile 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, what are you paying for?

Being Comfortable in a Social Setting

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 doing 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 Veneer 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.

Dentist Office

How dental marketing keeps me from visiting the dentist office

School was out! I think the only person more excited about the end of school, besides the school staff, was me. No more 6:30 wake up alarms for a solid month. Looking forward to a full seven hours of sleep, excitement filled my inner being. Then the reality of summer chores hit me. My list included athletic physicals, lawn mowing in the brutal Texas heat, and the dreaded trip to our local family dentist office.

Going to teeth cleaning was about as much fun for me as—nothing I can think of. As the Rolodex of chores whirred through my head, I paused at the dentist office to try for a second to wrap my mind around why I dreaded the task so much. Unlike so many people, I have insurance and access to dental health services.

Every dentist office was the same

The dental care associates that we had seen were all nice enough, but something about the process always put my teeth on edge, literally. It was never better in one dentist office than another. In a small town, my insurance company paid for X-rays I didn’t have time for. In a large town, I waited so far past my scheduled time that I felt like sending the dentist office a bill for my hourly rate.

Thinking it through, I realized that I feel constantly bombarded with dental marketing without any corresponding perceived value on my part. You see, if I felt “cared for” when I left, I might feel differently. However, I can barely tell one stagnant waiting room equipped with 24/7 Disney from another.

Dentist office or car dealership?

Between the Groupon offers, the Internet pop-ups, and the waving Zoom teeth whitening balloons, I feel stalked by dental professionals who see me as nothing more than a dollar sign and never as a person with financial difficulties. In fact, the only place that I have felt that hunted is the new car lot. Like so many people, I’ve sneaked in late at night to a closed chain car dealership just to avoid feeling like a bunny rabbit coated in Marinara sauce. All in the attempt to make an informed decision absent the sales pressure.

All in the attempt to make an informed decision absent the sales pressure.

The dentist office tacks cancer screenings and gum tissue measurements and a whole list of things they never did in the past onto my bill without question. Every time I pass a dentist office with the waving balloon I wonder why he’s so broke that he’s scrambling for my kid’s fluoride treatment like it’s the only thing that’s going to buy his lunch that day.

We need dental care, not dental retail

It wasn’t always that way. Dental care used to rank right next to medical care on the list of respectable professions. In the past, the only reason to dread going to the dentist office was the drill. Today, that’s the least of my worries. Oral hygiene shouldn’t be a fight. Anyone should be able to walk into a dentist office that is clean and calm, and feel like that professional has your best interest at heart. That’s what’s they used to call “a practice”. I would give my business to a place like that in a heartbeat. For life.That’s what people want when they need dental help. They’re fighting to protect themselves from professionals taking more and giving less. Less empathy, relationship, time, and education. Less dedication to the patient. The effect is endemic. The consequences for peoples’ oral health and the dentists who serve us is verging on catastrophic.

It’s not the dentists’ fault

Completing years of training, student loans, obtaining a license, and opening an office just to beg people to come in. Discounting procedures, installing iPads, and renting giant roadside balloons to bring patients in. Having to practice creative dentistry just to make it? Something is utterly broken.The dentists and we suffer this together, and yet we seem pitted against each other. Having gone through the issue, I came to the root of it: As a pacifist, I avoid conflict. I don’t want to fight my dentist (or anyone), and so I do the next best thing—Avoidance. Informing myself, I felt empowered with both my own interest and my dentist’s interest at heart.

The fight with the dentist office continues…

I felt the best approach was to get educated before going in. Knowing we’d engage in the same bi-yearly argument regarding fluoride treatments for kids, I prepared myself. I pulled up research and Youtube to see what was going on in the fluoride debate these days. Turns out, the tickle I felt about too much fluoride was real. But that’s an issue for another day.
