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 this removable form of cosmetic dentistry was affordable. 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.

The Decline of Dental Care in America

Picture the ideal “American dream” family. A father with a job that pays well, a nurturing mother, and their 2.5 children. This family has the time and money to schedule all of their necessary dental care.

In this reality, the father’s job probably has excellent benefits that include dental insurance. The mother will take the children to their dentist appointments. The children grow up with the assurance of regular dental care. The kind of care that provides braces to fix any issues with their smile.

This upper middle-class family with already perfect teeth easily makes the recommended bi-annual trips to the dentist for upkeep. Unfortunately, this is not an actuality for the majority of families. Many poor and lower-middle-class families do not receive adequate dental care, in part because most dentists want customers who can pay cash or have private insurance.

This prevalent problem raises the following question. Is the dentist in the habit of helping people, or in the business of making money? Look at the following statistics and decide for yourself.

The Cost of Dental Care in America

Rising dentist incomes reflect the lack of dental care for those who can't afford itDentist fees have risen much faster than inflation. In real dollars, the cost of the average dentist procedure rose 25% from 1996 to 2004.

In addition, dentists’ incomes have grown much faster than that of the typical worker. American dentists in general practice made an average salary of $164,570 in 2012. In contrast, the average salary among the general public was $51,017 that same year.

Average household income can't afford dental careThe American Dental Association believes this imbalance comes from a shortage of dentists. However, we believe the true problem stems from dentists unwillingness to practice in areas where they are needed.

Dentists have a disproportionate presence in affluent suburbs. However, those who are most in need of care are concentrated in inner cities and rural communities. As many as 130 million Americans do not have dental insurance coverage. Some of those have to use Medicaid to even gain access to dental care.

The State of Dental Care in America

Unfortunately, only about 20% of the nation’s practicing dentists provide care to people with Medicaid. Of those who do, only a small percentage primarily serve the poor, chronically ill, or rural communities.

The “typical” family referenced earlier is merely a fantasy for the majority of hard-working people. Taking care of a family doesn’t afford regular dental visits, much less any sort of cosmetic dentistry.

Those who can afford dental care don’t need it. Those who need dental care can’t afford it, and as a result, may be in desperate need of a dentist.

Affordable Dental Choices are Available

Brighter Image Lab is providing an affordable dental choice with their Press On Veneers since 2010, and BILVeneers just introduced in 2017.
