Fastest Smile Makeover by Brighter Image Lab

Watch the Fastest Smile Makeover Ever by Brighter Image Lab

This was the fastest smile makeover we have ever done. This client flew in and got her hair and makeup done. Meanwhile, we were hard at work creating a smile to match her new look. In the end, we gave her a smile she can be proud of.

Holly’s Story

The problem with my mouth has like completely consumed me. My little girl, my seven year old, I even keep her at a distance so that she’s not up close and personal.

Before they started to get real bad, we used to be like real silly and laugh and now like I just don’t do that with her anymore.

I don’t want her to say, you know, why do your teeth look this way?

Brighter Image Lab’s Fastest Smile Makeover Ever

Hey guys, today we’re doing the fastest smile makeover we’ve ever done. We’ve done some pretty quick before, but we’ve never been on a time crunch.

It’s 2:45 Dallas time. We have young lady we’re doing a smile makeover for. Very bad teeth, very embarrassed to smile. She signed up a couple months ago and when she signed up to become our client, we said, “Hey, listen, we’ll actually do a little bit of a makeover for you and see if these fit and get some pictures if you want to.”

And she said that would make her confidence go through the roof. So with that, we offered it and then we got delayed, or she got delayed, and then we got rescheduled, or she got rescheduled and so it goes on and goes on.

Well, now, today we got a phone call that says listen, I can make a flight standby and we’re gonna see if we can’t do it. We have four hours to get this thing done. You’re gonna see me meet her. I’ve never met her before and she’s never met me but this is the kind of vlog I like.

One, it’s interesting. Two, it should be pretty rewarding, and I’ve just never had one go this fast.

Bil Meets Holly

How are you doing?

Good.

Bil Watson how you doing?

Good.

Nice to meet you. You ready?

Uh huh.

Let’s go. We’re on a time crunch, so we’re gonna make it. You nervous? How was your flight?

Long. It was a long way.

Seriously?

I’ve never flown before. It was nerve wracking.

We’re running for a big-time crunch, so we may have to interview a little bit in the truck.

OK.

If you don’t mind me asking, what do you do?

I am a manager at a restaurant.

Oh so you work your butt off

I do.

Like 24/7?

Absolutely.

They always ask, like, “Y’all know each other?” We don’t know each other do we?

Nope.

When You Have A Bad Smile, You Re-learn How To Smile

I’m guessing probably what you’ve done is just train yourself not to smile very much

Absolutely. I trained myself how to talk. I try not to show anything…

Nothing, just the bottom portion of your teeth?

That’s it. I don’t want people to get too close.

Can you tell me how long has it been? That’s what everyone’s gonna ask, “Well, how long’s her smile been bad?”

Over, probably over six years.

So it started around 18, or 16, or what year?

I mean little things and then…

Chipping, breaking, a bad…

Yup…

…tooth in the back hurt, and next thing you know you can’t go get it drilled out and you just wait and you go, “Oh my god, why is my other one bad? Oh when will this stop?”

Desperate For Help With A Bad Smile

And I wrote to so many companies and like, dentists and contests and you were the only ones…

Who would respond?

Yeah.

From what I understand…

And that’s the truth, I went I mean every day. I would wake up and get on the internet and look for stuff…

But just some kind of help?

Mm-hmm.

Everyone Needs A Good Smile

And everybody goes, “Oh it’s cosmetic.” Well having teeth that don’t embarrass you is like saying, “Oh, pants are accessories.” You know it’s like, “Really? I think everybody needs a pair of pants.”

I feel like you don’t really realize how important it is until don’t have it. Like you can’t do it.

Oh I didn’t realize that. Yeah you’re right. I’ve never heard it said that way. You’re right, like you know…

Once it’s taken away…

Once it’s gone it’s too late.

Yes.

Dentists Should Be Offended

If I were a dentist I would be offended that some little girl in Erie Pennsylvania has to get on a plane, fly to Dallas to get help. Tooth Decay is the most preventable disease on the planet like on the whole world there’s nothing more preventable than tooth decay.

People just aren’t educated they don’t know how it starts and so they don’t know how to stop it. And like, I think in your situation you told me if you can make it look better then I don’t care because I’m not in pain, I just need to look better.

Right.

New Smiles Should Be Affordable

And with that, that’s kind of what you gave us a footing. But in your situation, you’re a worker, you’re a hustler, you weren’t asking for anything. You just didn’t know of anything that you could actually, pay off.

Right.

And you said, “Listen, I’m gonna take any action I could get.” And they don’t know it on YouTube but would have done anything. You’re like, “Listen, I’m a worker I don’t care my daughter’s not going to get raised with a mother who doesn’t smile.”

Right.

And so I said if she’s a fighter I’ll be a fighter with her. I’m not going to let her fight by herself. And that’s why we picked it.

The Fastest Smile Makeover Ever Begins

Now let me tell what we’re gonna do here. This little place should take about 40 minutes. It’s a little place called Drybar, they don’t do anything but styling.

Ok.

But they’re real cool at making people feel brand new.

You look amazing!

Thank you.

Looks cool. We got a little girl waiting to do some makeup on you, so it’s new.

All right.

I don’t know anything about that stuff. I hope you know the reason why I do that is I want them to go home feeling different. Not better, because everybody can do better. Everybody can do better. You go, “Oh, I could have worn a collar. Oh, I could have wore my stuff.”

I want them to feel different, and different means the world to me. I understand that they’re not the same.

Right. I’m starting to calm down a little bit more. I was nervous, yeah.

Your Smile Affects Everything In Your Life

My smile has affected my life in every in every way of my life. It’s kept me from my friends. I’m always wondering if people are judging me. My little girl, my seven-year-old, I even keep her at a distance so that she’s not up close and personal. Because if I do smile, I got my hand up or my head down.

Finishing the Fastest Smile Makeover Ever

Holly this is fastest smile makeover we’ve ever done. You look amazing. I’m glad we stopped. We didn’t do color, we didn’t do cut. We just styled your hair, did a little makeup.

Yeah

Threw you in a t-shirt, and we’re trying to get you back to the airport.

Right.

You got some travels to do but when you get home I think you’re gonna have the still enough freshness about you because everything’s brand new.

I feel beautiful right now.

You’re gonna go, “Wow, I can’t wait to get in front of people!” I always tell people it’s not about your smile it’s about if they were smiling who would they be if something wasn’t holding them back? And I’m hoping you do that.

So without further ado, I won’t even put on gloves cause we’re in a hurry. I’m going to actually ask you to put these in. Ready?

Holly Gets Her Fastest Smile Makeover

Yes.

All right you start with this and…They have a cover. And you start with the top and then we’ll try the bottom. It looks amazing. You see it?

*gasps*

Can you see it?

Yeah. Wow!

See how much more that color is going to do for you?

Yeah.

Let’s go ahead and try the bottoms. We’re going to take that one out for a second.

Yeah, it’s messy.

Try the bottom one, see what it does. Let’s see how the bottom fits. Oh my God, that looks good!

Oh, wow!

What I want you to do is just try these on again, this time press them up and hold it for a few minutes. It looks so good, it’s unbelievable. What’ll happen is, you have a bite that’s so tight at the bottom that you have to seat these. I can tell you they look amazing.

Oh my gosh! They look really pretty!

They look great.

A Makeover Isn’t Complete Without The Smile

You’ve done your diet, you’ve got your energy, you’ve got clothes, you got makeup and you’ve got something that’s holding you back and it’s been so punishing to you that I’m under the opinion that you probably have 1/10 of the pictures you’re going to have with your little girl.

That’s like one of the first things I wanted to do was take a selfie.

Selfies Need To Wait For The Smile

Second thing you’re gonna do is take selfies. First thing you’re going to do is just learn to smile. I’m telling you you don’t know how, cause you’re scared to. You’re going to learn how to do it. What’s the number that you would do if you had it to do over again?

Not wait so long.

You wouldn’t have waited? How old is your little girl? Seven? And this is six years, so she’s six years of seeing her mom not smile?

Right.

You aren’t going to let that happen again?

No.

Whispered: I don’t think so either.

It’s Not Fair To Withhold A Smile

Yeah it’s not fair, it’s not fair. Not fair to her, not fair to you.

No.

How is this going to affect you with work?

I’m going to be more comfortable with my guests.

Just more you, right?

Smile, yeah, relax more, not be so serious.

Okay, that’s worth the whole trip wasn’t it?

Absolutely.

We we got a little behind, but if we didn’t do it it wasn’t gonna be done.

A Great Impression Isn’t Difficult To Make

There’s dentists out there that’ll stay stay away from the internet because the impression is impossible. Were you scared of the impression? Was it too hard?

No.

So you just did it and sent them in?

I did it, yeah.

We got it done. And so t-shirt and stuff is all extra, you really came to get a smile?

Yeah.

I think we did it. We did what we said we were going to do.

He’s gonna take some pictures we’re gonna take one together and we’re gonna bolt all right? Ok! Boom, let’s do it!

…and being able to take like a selfie with my seven-year-old would be awesome!

Holly flew in from Erie, PA, but stories pour in from clients in areas like: Buffalo, NY, Cleveland, OH, Pittsburgh, PA, Columbus, OH, Toronto, ON, Hamilton, Ontario, Rochester, NY, Syracuse, NY, Akron, OH, Columbus, OH, Baltimore, MD, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, PA, New York, NY, Boston, MA, Hartford, CT, New Haven, CT, Providence, RI, Springfield, MA, Ottawa, QC, Montreal, Quebec, Manchester, NH, Allentown, PA, Atlantic City, NJ, Charleston, WV, Roanoke, VA, and Richmond, VA

Traditional Dental Veneers: A Perfect Problem - Remind yourself that it's okay to not be perfect

Traditional Dental Veneers and a Perfect Hollywood Smile

Traditional Dental Veneers: A Perfect Problem - Remind yourself that it's okay to not be perfectThe Real problem with traditional dental veneers has little to do with how they function or their performance. Who determines what a normal, aesthetically 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.

Effects of Marketing Traditional Dental Veneers

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 office to get the “perfect” smile.

Jane’s Traditional Dental Veneers

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 traditional dental 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.Curated from Saving Jane’s Smile

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.

Curated from Patients’ Satisfaction With Dental Esthetics

Functional Dentistry loses out to aesthetics

In other words, patients aren’t visiting the dentist primarily for tooth decay. Therefore, “needs” are more centered on aesthetics 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:

Aesthetics has become an important aspect of dentistry. Until about the last two decades, clinicians considered aesthetics to be far less important than function, structure and biology. Today, however, if a treatment plan does not include a clear view of its aesthetic impact on the patient, the outcome could be disastrous.

Curated from Patient’s Satisfaction With Dental Esthetics

Capitalizing on the Commerce of Imperfection with Traditional Dental Veneers

How disastrous was not spending tens of thousands of dollars on a second set of veneers for Jane’s smile? Reclassifying “aesthetics” 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, aesthetic problems with their smile, they are told, require expensive measures to correct in order to be “normal”.

The Real Problem with Traditional Dental Veneers

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 Traditional Dental Veneers

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. Brighter Image Lab created removable dental veneers allowing people time to evaluate all options before committing to porcelain veneers. We understand that people want to be proud of their smile. As a result, we offer Press On Veneers as a choice for a non-dental, reversible, and removable cosmetic smile contrivance. Call and talk to Laurie Hall today to find out more about Press On Veneers.

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.

Available throughout the United States, the UK, Australia, and Mexico, Snap-On Smile alternatives help you look great in social settings.

Smile again with removable veneers

School is out and summer is upon us! Warmer weather makes everyone yearn to be outside, get active, and get some sunshine. Summer is also the time when we catch up with friends, travel, and visit family. Some people dread these events rather than anticipate them because of a challenged smile. Without removable veneers, a bad smile leaves you uncomfortable in social settings where you have to hide your smile.

Snap-On Smile introduces removable veneers

Lumineers and Snap-On Smile have historically offered a way past that challenge with removable veneers through your family dentist. The Snap-On Smile was created to bring people into the closest dentist. Offered as an entry level component to Lumineers porcelain veneers, only dentists carry them. People with bad teeth visited a dentist asking for removable veneers, hoping for a quick fix to a bad smile.

However, nobody wants to go to the dentist to find out they aren’t a candidate for removable veneers. Moreover, when asked, “How much does Snap-On Smile cost,” most people find that $3000.00 for removable veneers is beyond their means. With no dental coupon or low-income dental care offered for the Snap-On smile, there was no option in the past. Insurance does not typically pay for cosmetic procedures, and there were no Snap-On Smile alternatives. That leaves two bad choices: pay a lot for a Snap-On Smile or suffer with a challenged smile.

Removable Veneers by Brighter Image LabPress On Veneers

But that isn’t the case anymore. Bil Watson of Brighter Image Lab believed that people deserved better. Rather than approaching the problem as solely dental issue, Bil knew there was a better way to make help affordable and available without a dentist. He tackled the problem not from a dental perspective, but from a purely technological standpoint.

In much the same way that sunglasses keep the glare out and afford you a level of comfort and obscurity without a prescription from an optometrist, removable dental veneers provide a similar relief for people who simply want the social comfort of covering their teeth from the judgment of others.

Press On Veneers by Brighter Image Lab

Nearly 10 years ago, we began creating new Press On Veneers ™ for our clients. Since then we helped thousands of smiles transition from bad to beautiful. Keep reading to learn how!

What are Press On Veneers?

At Brighter Image Lab, we believe that everyone has the right to a bright, beautiful smile. We took our lab-direct business model and developed a unique process to give our clients the smile they deserve at a greatly reduced price.

Using advanced technology, our design team and lab technicians work to create custom-veneers for each individual client. New Press On Veneers ™ are a single piece that fit over the front 10 – 12 teeth on the top and 6 – 8 teeth on the bottom. They ensure that teeth are covered when talking or smiling.

Why is our business necessary?

Press On Veneers by Brighter Image Lab

Unfortunately, not everyone has access to regular dental care. More than 47 million people in the United States live in “dental health shortage areas”. As many as 130 million Americans don’t have dental insurance.

Frankly, dentists are not doing their part to help those in need, and someone needs to step up to help. While the number of businesses offering dental insurance has continued to fall, the cost of a visit to the dentist has risen rapidly.

People with chipped, cracked, missing, or misaligned teeth need a solution that won’t cost them several thousand dollars, and we are happy to be able to offer that to them.

Brighter Image Lab is a dental laboratory that deals directly with the public. We bypass a dentist visit in order to craft custom-made veneers for a fraction of what they would spend otherwise.

Are New Press On Veneers ™ right for everyone?

Many people are good candidates for New Press On Veneers ™. In order to qualify, a client must have four natural teeth on the target arch (top or bottom).

The veneers grip onto the back of existing teeth. They hold to the teeth by the mouth’s natural suction. Once in place, the tongue cannot move the veneers, and there is no need for any glue or dental adhesive.

Can I get Press On Veneers at home?

Yes! In fact, we only sell Press On Veneers online, lab direct. This means you never have to see a “Press On Veneers dentist” because they don’t exist. In fact, you can’t find the best Press On Veneers on Amazon or eBay, but right here on our website.

We design Press On Veneers top and bottom at our lab, but we ship them all over the world. You never have to worry whether you can find Press On Veneers near me because we are near everyone. We deliver the same Press On Veneers in the UK that we deliver to the Tampa, Florida.

Are there any Press On Veneers reviews?

Clients ask us all the time where they can read a Press On Veneers review. There are a select few under the order area of our website, but the vast majority of reviews Press On Veneers have garnered can be found on Google Reviews.

Brighter Image Lab Press On Veneers reviews have greatly improved since we first started making them. In fact, there were many Press On Veneers complaints which clients still find and read today. Like most product launches, we did experience a rough start. We are continually looking to improve our products and services though, and we now have between and 4-5 star rating on Google Reviews, and new reviews are rolling in all the time!

How do I get Press On Veneers?

When you’re ready to place your order you can visit our website by clicking the Dental Veneers link in the header. Our website has a slider of hundreds of Press On Veneers before and after photos, a full list of pricing for New Press On Veneers ™, all of our information, how-to videos, and more.

We know clients are always looking for a Press On Veneers coupon code or asking when the next Press On Veneer sale is. We never want to sell you a Press On Veneers cheap because we feel like we would begin to sacrifice quality for price. The amount Press On veneers costs covers our expenses for making this custom fit veneer and allows us to continue to innovate these veneers. This ensures when you order, you always get the very best Press On Veneers available.

#BrighterImageLab was founded in 1997 by Director Bil Watson. The company began as teeth whitening business, but eventually realized there were needs that weren’t being addressed. People were unhappy with their smile because of more than just slight discoloration.

Because of our lab-direct system we are able to serve clients all over the world. Contact us with questions or give us a call at 1-888-257-2455.
