Receding gum lines can be a warning of other oral issues

“A smile is the universal welcome.”

- Max Eastman

Receding gum lines can be a warning of other oral issues

The saying goes that a smile is the prettiest thing you can wear.

However, when you have problematic or unsightly gums or teeth, it can certainly hold you back from welcoming all of the beauty the universe has to offer.

A top gum issue that impacts many people’s smile is gum recession. From what it is to what causes it, here is what you need to know about receding gum lines.

What does Receding Gums mean?

Gum recession, also known as a receding gum line, is when the edge of the gum tissue that surrounds your teeth pulls back and wears away. As a result, more of your tooth or the tooth’s root is exposed.

When this happens, it forms gaps or “pockets” between your gum line and teeth. This makes it easy for bacteria to build up and cause issues and diseases. If receding gums are left untreated, it can result in tooth loss because the bone structures and supporting tissue of the teeth become critically damaged.

While gum recession is a common dental issue, it occurs gradually and many people don’t recognize the signs and symptoms:

  • The first sign of a receding gum line is tooth sensitivity.
  • A tooth or teeth may look longer that normal.
  • A notch can be felt near the gum line.

If you suspect you have gum recession, it is NOT something that you want to brush aside. Because there are treatments that both prevent further damage and repair the gums, it is recommended that you make an appointment with your dentist right away.

Can receding gums grow back?

There are several factors that can cause your gums to recede:

Periodontal Diseases

  • Bacterial gum infections
  • Destroys supporting bone and gum tissue that hold your teeth in place.
  • The MAIN cause of gum recession is gum disease!

Rough Tooth Brushing

  • Aggressive brushing (either the wrong way or too hard) causes the enamel to wear away.
  • As a result, your gums will recede.

Genes

  • 30 percent of the population is predisposed to gum disease.
  • Gum disease occurs despite supreme oral care.

Poor Dental Care

  • Insufficient brushing, flossing, and rinsing allow tartar to build.
  • Tartar is hard and requires removal by a dentist.
  • This removal procedure can lead to gum recession.

Grinding & Clenching

  • These actions put too much force on your teeth and cause gum recession.

Tobacco Products

  • Using tobacco increases your chance of sticky plaque forming on your teeth.
  • Plaque is hard to remove and can cause gums to recede.

Misaligned Teeth

  • Crooked teeth place too much pressure on your bones and gums.
  • A misaligned bite can cause a receding gum line.

Oral Piercing

  • Tongue or lip piercings rub your gums and cause irritation.
  • This rubbing can wear away gum tissue.

Hormonal Fluctuation

  • Changes in female hormone levels can cause gums to become more sensitive and vulnerable to gum recession.
  • Hormonal fluctuations include puberty, pregnancy, and menopause.  

As we previously mentioned, it is vital to your oral health to schedule an appointment with your dentist so that he or she can assess the severity of the receding gum line and recommend a course of treatment, as receding gums do not grow back.

Next, let’s take a closer look how you can INSTANTLY improve your smile and the appearance of your gum line.

The truth about Instasmile

A past client gives the truth about Instasmile

Watch this video to learn the truth about Instasmile and see why you're better off with Brighter Image Lab.

This client, Tamera, has tried both Brighter Image Lab and Instasmile to solve the issues she has with her smile. She gives an Instasmile review explaining how she was shocked by the poor quality of Instasmile's products. She is just one of several Brighter Image Lab clients who tried Instasmile, felt like they'd been scammed by Instasmile, and wanted to tell us and everyone the truth about Instasmile.

Instasmile or Brighter Image Lab?

the truth about instasmile

Tamera's Story

Three years ago, Tamera purchased dental veneers from Brighter Image Lab. She was thrilled with her purchase and what it did for her smile.

Unfortunately in an accident while eating, her veneers broke.

She had to get something new quickly and selected the first dental veneer company that came up when she searched online. Tamera expected all dental veneers to be the same and purchased her Instasmile.

When her anticipated Instasmile package arrived, she opened the box and immediately she was horrified. She could tell from the look and feel that the product she had received was nowhere near the quality of what she had come to expect with her Brighter Image Lab veneers.

Unlike her previous veneers, Tamera's Intasmile product was visible to everyone. The goal of veneers is to be discreet and she explains in her Instasmile review that everyone she spoke to was able to see that she had something in her mouth.

"I didn't even have to smile. Just when I was talking, they looked at me differently."

Why Brighter Image Lab makes better smiles

The truth about Instasmile is that the covers are extremely thick and not made out of good quality material. Instasmile's products are more comparable to Brighter Image Lab's teeth whitening trays that sell for $47 while Instasmile sells its product for $350, ripping off people like Tamera. 

"One is a dental veneer and one is a teeth cover", says Bil.


The material in Brighter Image Lab's dental veneers is extremely high-quality resin originally developed by the NASA space program. The Instasmile product is made with a thicker, plastic material that sits on the teeth in a much more invasive way. 

This causes a person's voice to change when they speak and for the cover to be visible and obvious. The exact opposite of what veneers are intended to do and be. 

perfect smile

"It's a ripoff, I would not smile with this!"

"I would not smile with Instasmile"

"It's bulky and fake looking", explains Tamera as she holds the Instasmile product.

During her time using Instasmile, she sadly noticed changes in how she acted.

"When I put these on, I did not want to smile at all. I wanted to hide it."

She continued warning other people interested in improving their smile with dental veneers,

"Save your money for a good product and for a real veneer!"

Tamera hopes that others learn from her story and are able to find a solution to their dental issues that doesn't keep them from smiling. The material that Instasmile products are made of is thicker so it becomes very obvious that something is in your mouth.

For a product that is discrete, beautiful, and that can build your confidence, Brighter Image Lab is the way to go. See our products for yourself! We look forward to making you smile!

Kristian's Brighter Image Lab Veneers Introduction

Hi guys, um, so this is just a review that I’m gonna do on my Brighter Image Lab 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 Veneers 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 Brighter Image Lab Veneers 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.

Review Questions

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.

Brighter Image Lab Veneers 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 on Brighter Image Lab Veneers.

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!

You Likely Think the Process Will Be Difficult

Stressful Dentists Appointments

Do you picture long, expensive, painful dentist appointments that you would have to take off work for? No one likes going to the dentist and having a stranger poke around in their mouth. It’s also difficult to find a dentist you can trust won’t overcharge you.

You likely will have to sheepishly ask around for references to make sure you can find someone you trust to do the work.

Even then, there may be a long wait time to simply get an initial consultation.

Unreasonably High Prices

You probably think fixing your smile will cost a ton!

Dentists can charge several thousand dollars per tooth to do cosmetic fixes. Also, dental insurance almost never covers those cosmetic procedures.

Most people simply cannot afford this crazy expense when there are other bills to pay. It’s especially difficult to justify the cost for something optional and cosmetic.

Painful and Intense Procedures

Even if the procedures were affordable, many people avoid going to the dentist are out of a reasonable fear of pain.

expensive-dental-procedures

Many dental procedures are painful or damaging. Traditional dental veneers require tooth enamel removal that shaves off .5 MM of one’s perfectly healthy teeth!

But lucky for you, you can fix your smile without any of these issues!

Brighter Image Lab Temporary Veneers For Teeth

Temporary veneers - also called clip-on veneers or removable veneers (or a Brighter Image Lab-specific product PressOn Veneers) are a unique and innovative dental solution.

What Are Veneers?

What are veneers for your teeth exactly? Good question! Dental veneers are a cosmetic dental procedure that cover up an existing tooth. Teeth veneers can help cover:

  • Crooked Teeth
  • Stains and Discoloration
  • Missing Teeth (In some cases)
  • Misshapen Teeth
  • Chipped Teeth

The veneer acts like shell on the outside of a tooth, fixing the appearance often dramatically. 

what-are-veneers

There are many types of veneers that cater to a variety of needs and budgets. It's best to learn about each of them and to be informed before investing in veneers. So let's dive in!

What Are Teeth Veneers That Are Traditional?

Traditional dental veneers are done in a dental office. Dentists will shave down several millimeters of tooth enamel to make room for the veneer to go on top of the tooth. Dental offices will generally have a porcelain and composite option. 

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

These veneers, made from porcelain, are the original way veneers were made. They are known to be sturdy and to remain stain free throughout the years (typically 10-15 years). 

They are, however, quite expensive ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 per tooth, which can be problematic for people - especially when they need quite a bit of alterations.  

Pros

  • Look like real teeth
  • Don’t stain
  • Estimated to last 10-15 years

Cons

  • The enamel removal is irreversible
  • Porcelain can chip
  • Expensive compared to other options

What Are Composite Veneers?

Composite veneers are made from a modern, resin material. Resin veneers tend to be less expensive than porcelain veneers, but they do not last as long and they have the potential to stain. 

Pros

  • Look like real teeth
  • Less chipping than porcelain veneers
  • Estimated to last around 10 years

Cons

  • The enamel removal is irreversible
  • Staining is possible
  • Expensive compared to other options
fake looking veneers

What Are Lumineers?

Lumineers are a thinner version of traditional veneers. They are popular because they don't require enamel removal and are therefore reversible. Not everyone is a candidate for these though. People with larger teeth are not good candidates for Lumineers. 

Pros

  • Look like real teeth
  • Reversable procedure
  • Can last up to 20 years

Cons

  • Not everyone is a candidate
  • Staining is possible
  • Expensive compared to other options

What Is A Snap-On-Smile?

A Snap-On-Smile is what is called a removable veneer. Snap-on-smile products are full arches of veneers that dental offices offer.  They take an impression in a mould and then ship that impression to a dental lab. 

The dental lab will create the veneers and ship them back for you to pick up at the dental office. The removable veneers snap into place. They cost around $2,000 per arch. 

They are unfortunately quite prone to stain and only last 3-5 years. 

Pros

  • Look like real teeth
  • Reversable procedure
  • Cheaper than traditional veneers

Cons

  • Only last 2-5 years
  • Prone to staining
  • Expensive compared to other options

What Is Brighter Image Lab?

Brighter Image Lab is an innovative company that provides dental veneers directly to consumers. With their process, they mail an impression mould to your doorstep. You can easily make your dental impression from home. After shipping that impression to them, they'll create a custom smile for you. You'll receive the final product in the mail as well!

For this process you won't have to take off work to go to an expensive dental appointment. Everything can be done from the comfort of your own home. 

what veneers teeth look like

Brighter Image Lab is able to charge a much more affordable price for their veneers since their process cuts out the middleman. Veneers at Brighter Image Lab start at just $795!

They also offer 100% approval financing to make their veneers even more affordable and to give more people access to their products. 

They, like some other types of veneers, are not perfect options for everyone's teeth. Some people with larger teeth often decide that they are not ideal candidates for Brighter Image Lab Veneers

Pros

  • Comparably Affordable Option
  • Home Delivered
  • Last 5+ years

Cons

What Are Veneers Teeth Cover Scams?

There are unfortunately several companies that charge several hundred dollars for very low-quality veneers. There is a process called vacuum forming where a thin layer of plastic over a mould. The process is often used in industrial settings or to make treys for teeth whitening. 

Scam-like companies essentially color these treys white and market them as veneers at predatorily high prices like $400 to $1,000 when their quality would likely only warrant a $50 expense. Some companies we suspect use this process are: 

What Are Veneers That Are Right For You?

When asking yourself "what are veneers that are right for me?" there is a lot to consider. Deciding on what you want depends on what your comfort level is with price, invasiveness, and many other factors. 

We encourage you to research quite a bit before making your choice. Please read more information articles or take the quiz below to see if you would be a candidate for Brighter Image Lab veneers.

Fake teeth veneers are absolutely awful and embarrassing. But what's worse is when those fake-looking teeth cost thousands of dollars! Read on for a compilation of stories about fake-looking veneers and how to choose better options. 

$15 Fake Teeth Veneers

A Temporary Solution

Some veneers are extremely cheap (typically around $15-$30). These fake teeth veneers can be beneficial for a quick and temporary fix, but can also be disappointing. 

Clients are told to put the product form in hot water and then to push it onto top of their teeth. The mold, after being formed, goes into cold water to set. This is how the teeth are formed to fir the teeth of the client. 

Even though they "formed to your teeth" the teeth are clearly fake when fully shown. These can be a solution to temporarily hide dental issues for a job interview or meeting. 

fake-looking-veneers

Clients will likely have to use some sort of denture adhesive to keep them on and will likely not be able to eat with them.

There are countless joke videos about people purchasing these fake teeth veneers and how terrible they look. While it is true that these teeth are not ideal, they can be a solution for people who need to cover their teeth for a very low cost.

Many people are dissatisfied with them as a permanent solution and there are much better options that I'll discuss later in the article. People who cannot afford other options can use fake teeth veneers like these before they are able to get something better.

Fake-Looking "Veneers" That Are Scams

The companies above sell low-quality veneers for a very low price. An unfortunate problem in this industry is that there are many companies that sell low-quality, fake veneers for hundreds if not thousands of dollars.

The sale of veneers is not heavily regulated so a variety of companies have entered the market in the past few years. Many use a process called vacuum forming to create teeth covers that they market as veneers.

fake-looking-veneers

Fake Teeth Veneers and Vacuum Forming

Vacuum forming is a cheap process that can create a plastic teeth cover from a mold of someone's teeth. This process is also used to manufacture auto parts, package food, and for other industrial uses. 

In the dental community, vacuum forming is a process used to create mouth guards and teeth whitening trays. 

These trays can cost as little as $50, but fake dental veneer companies use white plastic and sell the covers as veneers for much, much more. 

The price to purchase your own, personal vacuum forming machine is only $95 on amazon. With the high prices these companies charge for their vacuum-formed products, their practices may seem quite predatory. I've listed a few below:

Shiny Smile Veneers 

Shiny Smile Veneers are believed to be created through vacuum forming. This company doesn't seem to have been around for very long, as their social media only became active in 2019.

People have made complaints that their tooth covers have "bubbles" in the plastic from the vacuum forming process and also have an uneven shade. 

Even though their knock-off veneers appear to be very low quality, Shiny Smile Veneers continues to charge $570 for top and bottom arches.

Removable Veneers USA

Another company that is believed to sell vacuum-formed fake veneers is Removable Veneers USA. This company sells both arches for $599. 

This "ghost-like company" eerily has very few online reviews. It's difficult to imagine spending so much money without being able to find external resources to inform your decision. 

One can even see flaws on the veneers from the company's own promotional pictures. 

Several pictures show a rim on the edge of the cover where it reaches the gum line. Natural teeth align smoothly with the gum line and this awkward rim makes the teeth cover much less discrete.

It can also be an issue when eating since food particles can build up along that ridge. 

TruSmile

TruSmile charges $470 for their top and bottom arches. 

It is also believed that their products are created through a vacuum forming process. Reviews show that the impression kits TrueSmile provides are very confusing and difficult to manage properly. People often have to get multiple kits, resulting in additional fees.

TruSmile's products are reported to last only six months. This quick replacement time can end up being quite costly. Ten years of usage would cost a client nearly  $10,000. 

They obviously need to work on their product's durability.

Instasmile

We hear more complaints about predatory practices from former Instasmile clients than any other business. Instasmile started growing in popularity in 2016. As their name implies they are popular within the Instagram community and with Instagram Influencers. 

Many pictures promoting their product are highly edited and showing very little detail almost as if they have something to hide. 

Unaltered pictures of one Instasmile product clearly shows they lack the quality advertised.

This is likely due to their alleged use of vacuum forming processes to create their teeth covers. 

Many people are dissatisfied with their product, especially given that their veneers can cost as much as $1500 with no refund available.

If you're dissatisfied, it's too late. 

Instasmile is also known to have very inadequate customer service and policies that do not allow refunds or adjustments. 

Actual Instasmile Client

Many clients claim their predatory practices caused a lot of stress and heartache due to empty promises and lost money.

Even Dentists Offer Fake-Looking Veneers

Traditional Veneers

Dentists have been using traditional veneers for many years. They typically are thin shells of porcelain or resin that are cemented on top of a patient's tooth or teeth. 

Before performing this procedure, a dentist will remove a layer of enamel that is around .55 mm thick. 

The traditional veneer process makes this procedure irreversible and the patient will have to continue to wear veneers for the rest of their life.

Traditional veneers can last 7-10 years when made from resin and 10-15 for the porcelain option. This length of time is not guaranteed and some patients experience issues or accidents before the expected replacement years.

Traditional veneers, though effective, are extremely costly. They cost around $1,000-$2,500 per tooth. Some celebrity dentists even charge $3,000 per tooth! They make the extraordinary claim that anything less expensive from average dentists will end up fake- looking teeth veneers.

fake-looking-veneers

Unfortunately, the high cost is keeping many people from being able to afford this procedure. One could argue that these are the people who need it most.

Also, since the process is irreversible, patients must pay for their replacements every 7-15 years.

Sadly, many dentists do not warn about replacements, especially to their younger patients who will have to repeat this process 7 or more times in their lifetime.

Getting traditional veneers is also (nearly universally) not covered by dental insurance since they it is a cosmetic procedure. 

Even though the procedure is extremely expensive, there are dentists that do not perform it properly and patients are often dissatisfied with their fake-looking veneers.

Lumineers

Lumineers are a thinner version of a traditional veneer. They are more opaque as well. 

Lumineers are reversible since they are so thin and the teeth do not have to be shaved down. 

Their thinness can be an issue though. Particularly dark stains or spots can still be visible through the thin lumineers. This has been a big complaint, especially considering that lumineers can cost up to $2,000 per tooth. 

They are also ore prone to breakage due to their thinness. 

Both traditional veneers and Lumineers do not help patients who have missing teeth. If there is nothing for the shell to cement to, the procedure will not work. People with missing teeth must find other options to fix their smile. 

Removable Veneers

Removable veneers are also offered at a dental office or directly from a lab. They come in arches rather than individual teeth and click into place instead of being cemented. People with missing teeth are candidates for this option. 

Some options for removable veneers are Snap-On-Smile, and Brighter Image Lab. 

Snap-On-Smile

Snap-on-smile is a version of removable veneers with prices starting around $2,000. These veneers are only offered at dental offices. The process will require two dental appointments. 

In the first appointment, a hygienist will make a dental impression. That impression will be sent to a lab where the Snap-on-smile will be created. 

After the smile, is created, the patient will come into the office for a second visit to get it.

This is a popular option because enamel removal is not necessary for this type of veneer making the process reversible. 

A big issue with Snap-On-Smile is how it is marketed. Dentists, hoping to make a sale are incentivized to keep the process within their practice. 

Some even claim that the procedure is only done correctly in dental offices. There however, is no scientific evidence proving this is the care. There are labs providing this procedure adequately and safely. 

There are also cases where Snap-On-Smiles do not do what they have promised for any amount of time. 

Ana, a former Snap-On-Smile client had a horrible experience with their product. She payed around $2,200 for her upper arch and after a year there was significant discoloration. 

Sections of the arch started to break off and the rough edge would cause her mouth to bleed. The dentist was not able to do anything about the issue citing that 45 days had passed since delivery and that there was no warranty. 

Luckily, Ana was able to replace her fake-looking veneers with a more affordable and higher quality veneer from Brighter Image Lab. 

Brighter Image Lab

A way to affordably avoid fake teeth veneers is by purchasing from Brighter Image Lab. This lab offers very high quality removable veneers at an affordable price. This lab, based in Ft. Worth, Texas, has been perfecting this process since 1997. They offer their veneers through a lab-direct method and clients can receive their products completely through the mail. 

The lab even has altruistic undertones as they work to provide dental solutions to people in all areas of life and economic status. They offer 100% approval financing and let clients pay off their veneers with payments as low as $24. 

Their veneers start at $795 per arch and are comparable to removable veneers offered in dentist offices without the high dentist office price. 

Most importantly, these are not fake-looking veneers. They are discrete and uniquely beautiful!

They have satisfied customers from all walks of life; from ex-convicts to elite international models.

Instasmile vs. Brighter Image Lab comparison

Instasmile vs Brighter Image Lab - Which Product is Worth Your Money?

Watch this video to see what you get for your money. Instasmile vs Brighter Image Lab - It's a showdown review.

Asking for a better smile

Since I was 13 years old, I had gone to a dentist who asked me for two things: If an angel came and tapped you on the shoulder, what would you ask for? One of the things I asked for was whiter teeth and straighter teeth.

I have to say that it's been an ordeal and I've been trying to manage that for some many years now. Braces were expensive. At the age of 13, you can't get them unless somebody gets them for you.

Finding Brighter Image Lab

I did a lot of research and I came across Brighter Image Lab.

I'd been looking for a reason to get to New York City. I'd received an email from a lady. Her story was pretty compelling. This is the kind of story that makes going to New York City worth it.

But in order to get there, my day started about 4:30 in the morning. So, come with me. Let's travel to New York City and let's see how this Instasmile vs Brighter Image Lab smile makeover turns out.

Flying blind

Today, I'm doing one of the craziest things I've ever done. We're taking a new life smile to somebody and what's crazy about it, is we haven't even sent them a test kit to see if these things even fit.

And I probably never thought about it before and just between me and you, because I never thought about it, I'm never going to do it again.

Meet Giselle

My name is Giselle and I'm from Long Island. I am currently in my 50's. Shh! And for a long time, I've been having difficulties with my teeth. I tried working with an online company prior to Brighter Image and I was completely let down.

She sent us an email, told us about her story, told us what had been done to her. And so, we said we'll do it. That's what we're here to do today. It's to see how we can change her smile. it's pretty cool because for the first time, we've come this far.

I can't wait to hear her story and, you know, I read about it, but I haven't heard it from her firsthand. A very attractive person with a really nice smile. It's just not lined up properly.

Getting it right on the first try

We didn't send these ahead for fitting. Didn't send a blank to make sure that they fit. Just came all the way to New York with our first try. Which i think is stupid now. It was kind of last minute. We had a chance to do it and so we took the time to do it.

Couple of questions I have for you.

Sure.

How did you hear about us?

I went online and I started doing a lot of research on YouTube. That's where I get a lot of my information. And I came across, I think I've seen all your videos by the way. And one of the things that became a problem for me was the cost and the financing.

Instasmile vs Brighter Image Lab

At that point, you didn't offer financing and I was able to do Instasmile. And I thought that at that moment, "Okay, well I done. I'm good." It's not the same product.

Did you see us first or see them first?

No, I saw them first.

Did you think they were the same?

I wasn't sure. I wasn't sure because then I got even more confused when I saw more videos and I saw more information online.

Let me grab something real quick. So you bought from Instasmile. What happened? I kind of know but I don't know.

A bad impression with Instasmile

Okay, it was always a problem with the impression. So that took, this was like three times which took about a month and a half. The impression I received, once I did get it, it was very very long and very thick.

I had asked for the Platinum product. Which, that was in April. And that continued all the way through December. I had over 100 emails of going back and forth, trying to get this resolved.

Towards December where I expected- Oh and each prototype came back progressively worse. It had bigger gaps. They were not shorter as I had requested.

All prototypes, no final product?

No, no. I got my final product in December without okaying the prototype.

Instantly awful

The end product, it shows up, what happened?

It was awful.

Just, when did you know? Instantly?

I knew instantly when I looked at it. It was bad. And I'm like, "Alright, you know what? Let me put it on and let me see if maybe visually it's just huge." No, it was horrible all the way around. It was just...

It seemed as if they never made any of the changes that I had requested.

Did you just do tops or top and bottom?

Both, top and bottom.

So it was pretty expensive?

Yeah it was bad.

Reviewing the Instasmile Veneers

I think I have them. They're gonna hate your feelings. We're gonna get past it real quick, though.

I don't even wanna see that.

Yeah, I don't think we do either.

They're terrible. They were so big.

Let's just forget about it. It's not worth it. I can see what they tried to do. And I actually polished them back up so I can see what was wrong with them. And I can see where you're talking about the color and stuff. So, let's just forget about them. Not worth talking about.

Trying BilVeneers from Brighter Image Lab

You want to try on the top?

Yes!

I designed these based on style.

Okay.

To be a little sharper. I didn't want you to lose your personality.

Thank you.

And so I did my best. Let's see if it fits.

Thank you! Oh my gosh. They fit.

Let's see how they look. They look freaking amazing. I'm trying to see if there's anything I can do.

They fit like a glove.

Well, we're going to see. You want to try the bottom one in first? Here you want the bottom one too?

Okay.

Let's get used to looking at this one first, because, let me say this - your bite's going to adjust after three days. Let's put the bottom ones in and see if they fit.

Oh, wow!

Two foreign objects

Because, if that's true, you're going to get full veneers. I normally don't ask people to do two at the same time because it takes days to get acclimated to foreign objects in your mouth. But because your teeth are so attractive right now, it's kinda like in Vegas if you win once, you win twice, you want to go and win a third time.

So, let's try. But if it doesn't work or if it doesn't fit right, it's going to take longer to get adjusted to two. But there's no way we want to walk away without seeing those. Make sense?

Brighter Image Lab is Amazing

This is amazing.

Yeah, I know, I can tell.

I'm so happy.

Like, a lot of times, what we do is self-satisfying. Like when we know that we did it.

Oh my gosh.

Make sense?

I need a bigger mirror.

You glad you got yours?

So, you're going to have to push these down. Make sense?

Okay, alright. But start in the back, right? They're in.

They're in. Perfect.

Wow.

Let me see.

Oh my God!

Wow!

Perfect! You have a smile that doesn't really bite closed.

Right.

So, you kind of have an open smile.

I do, yeah.

And it's gonna be pretty cool.

I like the open smile

I do too. It makes you look like a kid.

Thanks!

You never tried these in before two seconds ago?

No.

And I pulled them out of a sealed case.

Yeah.

So, this is- you're already talking to me and you're already having a conversation in 30 seconds.

Yeah.

You know, I was- you can, I think you can tell, I was scared to give you both in five minutes. It just looked so good.

I love them. I love them.

They look so amazing.

They're great.

My God. I had all these concerns. They look amazing. Look at your points.

I love that.

That's amazing.

I love that.

Looking for flaws

My job now is to see if- is to do what you would do if you knew my job when nobody else was around. And if I can detect from any side of that tooth whether anyone would ever think that you didn't not get porcelain veneers.

They look like porcelain veneers. My mother-in-law is going to be jealous because she just spent a fortune on her teeth.

And you feel fine with the bite?

I do. I do. Over here a little inside just a bit.

Because it's going to take a few days, but yeah.

Yeah, I think so. They're perfect!

They look amazing.

They look perfectly straight, all your details, and all your chisels - we did it.

Yeah, mine but better.

The verdict on Instasmile vs Brighter Image Lab

I think we did good! You know, I want to thank you, but let me say this: I've had people tell me through comments, "You need to thank her for me. No, don't thank her for you. Don't thank her for your company. Thank her for me."

I am amazed at your results.

We want to thank you and you know, giving the opportunity to help others is major. Sometimes people don't reach out when they should and I'm glad that I reached out and filled out the application and here we are. I'm so thrilled.

Tough day. The storms in New York caused us to be re-routed to Charlotte, North Carolina. So, we're hoping to get home tonight. At least, I am trying to get home tonight. Could not have worked with a better person today on Instasmile vs Brighter Image Lab.

She did her job so we could do ours

The young lady that we worked with, mother of two, wanted a smile so bad you can't even imagine. And we were able to deliver that. She just was an exceptional individual. Very happy, every bit as more exciting, more pleasant, more wonderful to deal with.

Awesome person. I was glad to meet her, and you can tell her family means the world to her. Every time she lit up talking about her kids, the boy, the girl, husband. Made it worth it.

I was incredibly impressed with the detail that she put into her impression and I was super, super appreciative of the patience that she gave us actually do the work that we need to do.

I looked at her work today for 20-30 minutes and I could not imagine what we could do to do it any better. So, I was real, real pleased. We thought we'd get there, get in at 11, get out about 8-9. It didn't work out that way.

Vlogging ain't easy

And so anybody that tells you vlogging is not tough is crazy. It's a long day. I hope it looks as good on camera as it does in person. Remember if you like what you're seeing, subscribe.

How to get your money back from Instasmile

How to get a Instasmile refund!

If you're on this webpage you're mad you're pissed because you got a dental veneer that sucked and you were told you weren't eligible for a refund, guys I want to tell you I promise you nobody feels worse about it than I do. Besides you, it's not my money, it's your money.

If you bought an instant veneer, clip on veneer, or a Trusmile true veneer or whatever these guys names are this week and you're mad about it because you spent three fifty, four hundred fifty dollars, five hundred dollars, six, whatever, and they sent you something with holes in it that made you think that it was real close to what we do…

For the first time I'm going to promise you some relief. If you've got ripped off I promise you I want to help you get your money back.

Money-back towards a BilVeneer ™

Supposing that you're an Instasmile client that has lost your money and you wish you could start over that I'm going to see what I can do to help you. Wherever you're watching this video and you have an Instasmile or whatever you want to call it, veneer, I will take the order value that you paid and cannot recover from their customer service, and I will discount that off a BilVeneer™, which essentially gives you an full refund.

I will credit you back 100% of your order value whether you never received a finished product from them, or you finally got them and they're deemed unsuitable. I will build you a custom-designed dental veneer that's designed to fit your face even if their customer service said you're not eligible for an Instasmile refund. I can't do it all the time, but I can do it for a short period of time no matter what their refund policy says. Check out our products here!

Don't be afraid!

They may be cheaper, and I get that advantage. But when you need that smile, and you need it to change your life, and you need it to go forward with all the things are gonna happen in your life. I promise you the last thing you wanna do is to be scared when the impression kit shows up!

The second thing you don't want to do is you don't want to be mad about a refund policy or a warranty period. Guys, every day I hear people that are scared or they're mad. I get these all the time. Or they get up and they said the pictures look just like yours but the actual veneer never does. Or even worse, they say customer service says their impression kit was never received!

They look bad and they feel upset and they call me or get on social media and say: "What can I do to get my money back?", "This was not what I thought I was paying for, they won't remake the product, and I just want a refund of my order value".

Cosmetic Dentistry is our competition

I'll tell you that if you follow me at all, if you follow me on Instagram and follow me on YouTube. You'll see that I do veneers that I'm passionate about. And I do everything I can to be competitive with the cosmetic dentistry.

So if you give me a smile that's challenged I'm gonna do all that I can to build the best smile that I can, and I will remake the product if it's not right. I'm not going to do what's been done to a lot of these people for 300 to 400 dollars.

We have the technology that we think is as good or better than anybody making dental veneers anywhere in the world. And for anyone who's just now finding this I want to tell you. There's five things you need to know about every veneer before you buy it.

What to ask before buying a dental veneer online, so you won't need a refund from instasmile.com

Number one, make sure it's not teeth cover, like a bleaching tray. Because bleaching trays are or teeth covers that are very inexpensive. Even if it's a tooth color, doesn't make it a veneer, in my opinion.

Guys, what I want you to do is ask them. "Do you use a flat piece of plastic to make these? Yes or no?" "Do you vacuum form or pressure form these things over a model of teeth?" "Are they pressure-formed or vacuum-formed in any way?"

That'll help you a lot.

"Do they cut these with scissors or a hot knife?" "How are they cut, or are they cut at all?"

Then I would ask them: "Is the thickness uniform?" "Is there any contouring to these?" "Are they thicker in the top or are they at the bottom?" "Will you remake the product if it doesn't fit and do I get two remakes?" "What is the warranty period?" and "Are they purposely designed for true detail in between each individual teeth?"

Better than needing an full refund, don't buy instant smiles in the first place!

Just the fact that they say they're instant tells you that they're not putting a lot of contour into it. Ours take anywhere from two weeks to 30 days because there's nothing about what we do that's instant.

Those are things that people never know to ask for. If they say no to any of these, guys run, don't walk, run. We believe that every smile should fit your face and these just fit your teeth. I tell people every time that the contouring of each veneer is very important. But they need to be as thin as possible at the top a little thicker across the middle and very detailed at the bottom.

And when I smile, you don't see much because the lip is too long. So I have to smile really hard when I place my veneer back in. I can put no effort in it and you see a lot of a larger portion of my smile. And it's brighter and it seems professional and I've never had anyone say they don't believe it to be anything but exceptional.

Improving your life is no laughing matter

I feel very good about it. I'd never want to make fun of anyone who took energy and effort and spent money to try to improve their life. And I don't care if you improved it for a day, it was worth it if you spent your $350.

I'd still like to hear from you if you're happy. But I do know that if you spent three hundred fifty dollars and you wish you had a BilVeneer™. It's not the same as what you thought it was, the pictures didn't do you justice, or they didn't explain it to you. Then you'll be in the same position we are every day when we hear from people from all over the world.

Some parting advise

It could be the best thing that ever happened to you. For the people who have already lost, we can fix it. And the people who are about to lose, we can prevent it. Let me tell you why I want to do this.

I know that if you spent three hundred fifty dollars on the smile it's because you're hopeful for your future. And I'm going to tell you what a lot of you don't know. For most of you listening the best things that ever going to happen, you hasn't happened yet. Weddings, special events, first dates, interviews, awards, rewards. All these things that are going to happen in your life, and you have a smile that's holding you back.

If you would like to get a refund from instasmile.com, let me help you

So the day that I help you fix that one hurdle in your life. All these things are going to be met more energy, more enthusiasm. It's worth it for me to make less on some veneers. Just to know that we right-sized a lot of opportunity for people who thought they couldn't afford anymore. Or thought that they could deal with a little bit less.

And if I do the job that I hope that I can do, I think you're gonna see joy. It'll make you feel like it was the best purchase you ever made of your life. I look forward to seeing the after pictures where you actually use these smiles for all the special events and all the good things are gonna happen in your life.

My name's Bil Watson, and I am a designer at Brighter Image Lab. I'd love to build you a BilVeneer™, and I'd love to do it before you get in trouble with one of these instant smiles. Come get to know me.

Thank you guys and I look forward to working with you.

If you are looking for the Instasmile refund policy, the Instasmile warranty period. If you were deemed unsuitable for Instasmile or were charged an admin fee by Instasmile. If you tried submitting a complaint to a site like pissedconsumer.com or thought you'd receive a defective product from Instasmile, please consider Brighter Image Lab.

Brown stains on teeth is one of the possible effects of Fluorosis

Brown stains on teeth (tooth discoloration) is an aesthetic problem that is linked to a variety of causes.

These unsightly brown stains on teeth are often a source of embarrassment and can damage not only your teeth, but your self esteem as well

brown stains on teeth

The absolute number one facial feature is your SMILE

While poor dental care or eating certain foods can affect the appearance of teeth, what could be truly causing these brown stains on teeth may be lurking in your tap water, TOOTHPASTE, and mouthwash.

So wait… products that are meant to HELP your teeth could actually be harming them?

It’s true.

The reason is that many standard oral hygiene products are loaded with fluoride. This exposure combined with drinking fluoridated tap water ends up creating a toxic level of fluoride in your body.

This toxic level leads to a condition known as dental fluorosis, which causes brown stains and damages your teeth. 

What is Dental Fluorosis?

And when consumed in high concentrations, fluoride causes dental fluorosis.

Fluorosis is a dental term that describes the developmental disturbance in regards to the enamel. It is not a disease, but rather a cosmetic condition. Overexposure to fluoride causes fluorosis, especially during the years when the teeth are developing, typically up to age 8.

The effects of fluoride on tooth enamel include lower mineral content and an increase in porosity. Typically, the dentist measures the damage by examining the surfaces of the teeth when clean, dry and under good lighting.

If the dentist suspects dental fluorosis, they can further examine your teeth and gums. X-rays are beneficial to make sure the teeth do not have any other defects, like cavities.

Dental fluorosis causes varying degrees of both aesthetic and physical damage to your teeth. 

What causes brown stains on teeth of children?

The visual effects of fluorosis dictates the severity and varying degrees of damage:

  • Healthy, Normal Teeth: appear to have a smooth, glossy surface, that’s typically a pale white color.
  • Moderate Fluorosis: Moderate cases will affect all enamel surfaces of the teeth. The surfaces will show wear as brown staining as the main feature. Teeth can also begin to erode and even crumble.
  • Severe Fluorosis: In severe cases of dental fluorosis, the enamel can become discolored. Brown stains on teeth will develop over time, which is due to diffusion of exogenous icons, such as iron and copper, into the abnormally porous enamel. These brown stains on teeth are widespread, making the teeth look corroded. All enamel surfaces are now affected. The general form of the tooth may also be affected.

Dental fluorosis causes something that is called intrinsic discoloration.  What this means is that the inner structure  of your tooth, the dentin, darkens or gets a yellow tint. These intrinsic brown stains on teeth are much deeper and are permanent. It is usually not possible to neutralize or lighten this type of discoloration.

Unfortunately, intrinsic discoloration caused by dental fluorosis can greatly affect one’s confidence… but fortunately there is a way to instantly transform your smile!

Next, let’s take a closer look at choosing the BEST option to get rid of those pesky stains.

How do you get brown stains off your teeth?

We have some good news and bad news.

The bad news is that brown stains caused by dental fluorosis are, like we previously mentioned, permanent. This means that no amount of teeth whitening will truly change the color of your teeth.

Can a dentist get rid of brown teeth stains?

Other methods of removing stains, such as contouring or traditional veneers, can potentially enhance the appearance of your teeth. However, these techniques pose several concerns that you must consider:

Contouring:

  • Puts you at risk for tooth breakage
  • Can cause teeth to become weak
  • Only slightly improves appearance
  • Causes sensitivity if too much enamel is removed
  • Permanently alters the tooth structure

Traditional Veneers:

  • Process is NOT reversible
  • Not repairable if they chip or crack
  • Teeth sensitivity to hot and cold
  • May not match exact color of other teeth
  • Upwards of $20,000 + for a complete smile makeover 

As you can see… the risks and price of these procedures aren’t worth it!

But don’t fret just yet because there is a simple and affordable solution to instantly transform your teeth and your smile.

Gum Contouring Before and After

Curious about the effects before and after gum contouring? Would it interest you to know that gum contouring is rarely necessary? Read on to learn more!

Did you know that it takes LESS effort to smile than to frown?

It’s a FACT! Frowning requires a shocking 50 muscles… while producing a smile only needs 13.

However, when you have a “gummy smile”, your mouth most likely isn’t getting a work out at all.

Are you looking for a way to enhance the appearance of your smile?

For some, gum contouring is an effective solution. However, given the astronomical cost of the gum contouring procedure versus how little it does in return may leave you seeking a more affordable and effective solution.

Let’s take a look at what gum contouring is, what to expect before and after the procedure, and a stunning alternative that can give you the smile you’ve always wanted.

What Is Gum Contouring?

Gum contouring is a form of cosmetic dentistry that is used to correct and reshape excessive or uneven gums.

Prior to the procedure, the dentist will use a local anesthesia to numb the area. Next, the dentist will fix the uneven gum line by removing the excess gum tissue as needed and then sculpt the gum line with a laser or other cutting tool until it appears even and natural.

This process exposes a little more of the enamel of the teeth and can usually be done in one office visit.

Also known as gum lifting, gum contouring is a relatively painless procedure. While some people do experience discomfort and swelling for the first few days after the procedure, the healing time is typically quick.

Now that you know what gum contouring is, let’s take a closer look at what before and after gum contouring effects look like.

What are the effects before and after gum contouring?

Gum contouring is able to offer slight changes in your smile’s appearance. However, gum contouring CAN’T completely alter and transform your smile, especially if you have misaligned, crooked, cracked, chipped, or stained teeth.

Here are the changes you can expect from having a gum contouring procedure:

before

after

  • Excessive gum tissue
  • Uneven gum lines
  • Stubby or small tooth shape
  • Balanced gum tissue
  • Even and natural gum lines
  • Attractive tooth shape
  • A more symmetrical smile
  • Immediate, yet minor, results

These behind the scenes before and after gum contouring photos can give you an idea about the changes to expect. Please be aware that results can alter dramatically depending on your condition as well as who performs the surgery:

before and after gum contouring

Next, let’s look at the cost of this procedure to see if it’s even worth it.

How much is gum contouring?

Unfortunately, gum contouring can cost $50 to $350 to shape and remove the gum around a SINGLE tooth. The price range is so vast because the cost depends on:

  • Extent of the work needed
  • Local rates
  • Expertise and reputation of the dentist
  • Sedation method 

The damage or overgrowth rarely is limited to just one tooth. Therefore the total costs for extensive gum reshaping and contouring for the visible teeth in the front can easily cost $3,000 or MORE!

Luckily, there is an easier and more affordable way to get the smile you’ve always wanted. You no longer need to face the atrocious costs of gum contouring. Instead of researching "before and after gum contouring", you can research "veneers before and after".

Are Veneers Worth It?

Do veneers really work for people? Do veneers actually help with problems like chipped teeth, gaps, and alignment issues?

Are veneers worth it?

The answer to each of the questions above is yes. Read on to discover why veneers are worth it and how they have been life changing for so many people. 

Benefits Of Veneers

Job Opportunities

A smile is a big part of someone's appearance. It's one of the top things people notice first. It is proven that people who are more attractive are more likely to: 

  • Be interviewed for jobs
  • Be hired for jobs
  • Advance rapidly through promotions
  • Earn more (1)

This is especially true in retail or sales jobs where someone interacts with customers or clients constantly. 

Some jobs are even exclusively about attractiveness, like modeling. If top model, Lara, can use veneers to advance her modeling career, imagine what they could do for you!

Bettering Yourself

Some people did not have access to proper dental care earlier in life and were unable to afford the high cost of cosmetic dentistry

Ginger had a lot of dental issues due to not getting proper dental care as a child. Her smile continued to deteriorate and she was unable to afford major dental work.

She hid her dental malady by never allowing herself to smile showing her bad teeth

"I have so much confidence right now!"

smile-transformation

"This is going to change my life."

Ginger is proudly four years sober and has already worked to make her life better in so many ways. She saw getting veneers as the next step in her recovery process. 

She wanted to be able to present herself well to others and to remove the distraction of her dental issues. 

Her new veneers gave her exactly that.

Types Of Veneers

To help you answer this question for yourself, "Are veneers worth it?", first you should understand the different types of veneers and what they do. 

Traditional veneers

Traditional veneers go on top of individual teeth requiring them to be filed down. The process is done in a dentist office and is irreversible.

Press-On Veneers – Brighter Image Lab

Press-On Veneers are a modern alternative to traditional veneers. They are a full arch for either top, bottom, or both arches of teeth. Press-On Veneers fit most teeth without any preparation necessary, and is only available lab direct from Brighter Image Lab. 

What Do Veneers Actually Cost?

Traditional veneers vary in cost depending on geographical location and individual dentist. They typically range from $1,000-$2,500 per tooth. Because it is cosmetic procedure, isn't covered by most insurance plans.

Press-On Veneers are a much more cost effective option, especially when a patient needs to cover many teeth. Brighter Image Lab offers full arches starting at $795.

People with bad teeth experience a unique type of workplace discrimination and can find themselves in a vicious cycle that is almost impossible to escape!

Why Do Bad Teeth Cause Workplace Discrimination?

Take a second and think about scary Halloween costumes or human-like monsters in horror movies. You will likely picture them with crooked, missing, or deeply-stained teeth. For some reason, many of us see imperfect teeth as scary! Unfortunately, bad teeth have a terrible effect on whether or not people get hired. 

Bad teeth and discrimination go hand-in-hand. People tend to see people with bad teeth as being unreliable, having poor social skills, being less intelligent, and even being psychologically unstable! (3) Of course, none of these things are true, but the negative stereotypes tends to cause workplace discrimination. 

Workplace Discrimination - "Perfect People"

People who are seen as attractive don't have these problems.  A 2017 study found that people who are more attractive are unfairly more likely to be:

  • Be interviewed for jobs
  • Be hired for jobs
  • To advance rapidly through promotions
  • Earn more (1)

One of the top causes that determines someone's attractiveness is their teeth and smile. (2) So if you have bad teeth, it doesn't matter if you are hard-working, motivated, or a good citizen, the odds are stacked against you.

Insecurities Caused By Bad Teeth

People can sense prejudice and discrimination in the workforce. As they look for work, many people feel that their teeth and smile will keep them from the jobs they desperately need. They lose their confidence and take less risks. Many people feel incapable of finding a job because of their bad teeth.

A dental school in Utah performed a study on a group of some of the most at-risk people. They worked with people who had been recently released from rehab and would likely struggle on their inevitable job search. The students provided free dental work to a percentage of patients and tracked their job search. They found that people who had dental care were twice as likely to get a job as those who didn't. Unfortunately, not everyone gets an opportunity like this. Most people cannot afford the high cost of cosmetic dental procedures they need to get ahead. 

Cosmetic Dentists Are Too Expensive

expensive-dental-costs

Cosmetic dental procedures to fix people's teeth are insanely expensive. Cosmetic dentists often charge hundreds of dollars for a procedure done on a single tooth! If you want a full mouth reconstruction, you better cough up tens of thousands of dollars. 

People with bad teeth should be able to find work. A ten thousand dollar entry fee into the workforce is unattainable for most! People are tired of this. When people don't work, they don't have money for dental care and their teeth keep getting worse and worse! It's a new form of class warfare! Many people feel like they don't have options. This vicious cycle has to end!

Understanding Veneers vs Lumineers

In the world of cosmetic dentistry, there are many options. But which is right for you?

The purpose of this post is to layout the differences between veneers, Lumineers, and Press-On Veneers.

The main difference between veneers and Lumineers is the thickness. Typically, traditional veneers are thicker and require some enamel removal, while Lumineers are thinner and do not. Press-On Veneers are thin, like Lumineers, but are full arches and are much more affordable than the others.  

Both veneers and Lumineers are acceptable smile options for the following issues*: 

  • Chipped Teeth
  • Stained Teeth
  • Minor Alignment Issues
  • Gap Teeth

*Press-On Veneers can also fix the appearance of missing teeth

chipped-tooth

Traditional Veneers

Traditional veneers are small tooth-shaped structures that attach to the front of individual teeth for cosmetic purposes. The process of attaching traditional veneers starts with a dentist removing about .5 mm of the tooth's enamel. The patient will then have a set of temporary veneers for several weeks while a lab creates the final set. 

After the set is ready, in a second appointment, the dentist will attach the veneers.

Lumineers

Lumineers follow a somewhat similar process however there is no enamel removal. Lumineers are much thinner than traditional veneers so they can be attached to the entire original tooth. 

Press-On Veneers

Press-On Veneers are thin, like Lumineers, and do not require enamel removal. These veneers are typically full arches instead of individual teeth. They can only be purchased directly from Brighter Image Lab

They click into place over a client's entire top or bottom arch, giving a uniform and aesthetically pleasing appearance. They also can easily be taken in and out for cleaning purposes. 

Press-On Veneers Before and After

veneers-vs-lumineers

The Differences

expensive-dental-scams

Cost

Traditional veneers and Lumineers are somewhat similar in cost. The cost will vary by geographic area and each individual dentist but both typically start at around $1,000 per tooth. 

Since all of the procedures mentioned are cosmetic procedures, they are generally not covered by dental insurance

Press-On Veneers by Brighter Image Lab start at $795. Other low quality knock-offs can be found for as low as $400. Some dentist offices offer  alternatives, but have been known to charge over $2,000 for a single arch.

Reversibility

Reversibility is one of the main topics when discussing veneers vs Lumineers. Since traditional veneers require enamel removal they are irreversible. Once a patient has this procedure, they must continue upkeep indefinitely. 

This is especially problematic for people whose teeth are healthy. It is difficult to justify altering otherwise healthy teeth simply to make them look better. 

Lumineers and Press-On Veneers can be reversible and the original teeth can remain intact. This means people then can keep their full, healthy teeth. They also have the option choose alternative treatments in the future. 

Durability

Traditional veneers and Lumineers have been known to last up to 10 years. Some say Lumineers can last longer. 

Press-On Veneers last 5 years or more depending on a client's dental hygiene. 

Dangers

Traditional veneers and Lumineers are cemented to the patient's teeth. There is never a perfect transition between the foreign material and the gum and this ridge can be an area that has a higher susceptibility to gum cancer. 

Final Thoughts on Veneers vs Lumineers

The main differences between the procedures are cost, reversibility, durability, and potential dangers. Many people are nervous to have a permanent procedure done that requires their teeth being shaved down. Lumineers and Press-On Veneers are both alternatives to the traditional process. 

It's important to know the differences for veneers vs Lumineers before making any decisions. What do you think is the best veneers option for you? Would you please let us know in the comments below?

Female: Age 25-35

This young woman struggled with a severe gap (diastema) in the top arch of her front teeth. Both top and bottom arch were slightly discolored. She was looking at a few thousands of dollars of work at the cosmetic dentist. Veneers from Brighter Image Lab fixed her smile for significantly less.

 How Do Teeth Look After Dental Veneers?

Braces are awkward at any age but are tough for adults especially. 

If you're one of the many people struggling with crooked teeth, braces aren't the only option! Dental veneers can give you the results you need - beautifully straight teeth - without an expensive orthodontist bill. 

Affordable veneers are also much quicker. You can typically get them within a month, but braces take 18-24 months of painful, continual use. 

How White Do Teeth Look After Dental Veneers?

chipped-tooth-smile-makeover

Living with stained teeth is a difficult struggle. A great perk of dental veneers is that they give you a bright Hollywood smile!

Well-made veneers look like natural, white teeth. They don't look plastic, but look like normal teeth that happen to be stunningly white and gorgeous.

Good-quality veneers don't stain like natural teeth typically do over time, and when they do, it is easier to remove those stains. 

Do Teeth Look Natural After Dental Veneers?

new-bright-smile

Some people struggle with their teeth being too small, or their smile appearing gummy.

When a patient walks into a dentist office with these issues, dentists typically provide a treatment plan of crowns or gum altering procedures. Both are expensive, painful, and unnecessarily invasive.

Dental veneers are designed to fit your natural gum line so your teeth and gums appear perfectly sized!

Do Veneers Cover Missing Teeth?

missing-teeth-fixed

My favorite transformations involve missing teeth. This is often a huge source of embarrassment for people.

Dental veneers are an amazing option for covering missing teeth without complicated  and unnecessary dental procedures.

This smile transformation is truly life-changing since missing teeth are often an unfortunate stereotype representing poverty, poor dental hygiene, and drug abuse. 

Put On A Happy Face With Dental Veneers

how-do-teeth-look-after-dental-veneers-5

Smiling is so important for your self-esteem, and dental veneers can really help you feel comfortable smiling again. 

Good veneers give the ability to grin, smirk, and laugh effortlessly without any hesitation or embarrassment.

It's amazing to see someone comfortable smiling for the first time in years. All of the stress seems to melt off of their face as they rediscover their freedom to smile. 

Do Your Research

Make sure you adequately research companies before purchasing dental veneers. Some companies, even dentist offices, sell options that look fake and don't fix the dental aesthetics they claim to. 

Scammed by Instasmile?

Some Are Plastic-Looking

Some Don't Last

Dental veneers (temporaries) offered at dentist offices may not last as long as you expect them to.

Traditionally, veneers only last 5-15 years before replacement is required. 

Some situations are much less. This Snap-On-Smile client had veneers that needed replacement after only two years of use

Companies like these are the reason many people are afraid to get dental veneers. Your smile is your best investment, and purchasing veneers is a big choice. It's important to be sure the company you choose has integrity and has your best interest in mind.

Get Educated On Veneers Teeth Pros And Cons

Are you interested in dental veneers? Changing the appearance of your smile is a big decision! Before you decide which dental option is right for you, you should learn about the different types of veneer teeth, pros and cons, and everything in between.

Keep reading to find what's right for you and your smile. 

Traditional Veneers

Traditional veneers are created in a dentist office. These tooth veneers are a small tooth-shaped cover that go on top of your natural teeth. These veneers are made of either porcelain or a composite resin. 

Pros

Function

Traditional veneers can really beautify your smile. They can fix a number of issues including chipped, misshapen, or discolored teeth. Porcelain veneers last comparably long (around 10 years) before needing replacement. 

veneers-teeth-pros-and-cons

Many people have found teeth veneers to be a great solution to cosmetic issues they have with their smile. The method has been used by dentists for many years. 

Cons

veneers-teeth-pros-and-cons-2

Cost

Traditional veneers are costly. The cheapest traditional veneers are $1,000 per tooth, but can cost much more. This is especially problematic for patients with major dental issues and need quite a few teeth fixed. 

Veneers are generally not covered by dental insurance since it is a cosmetic procedure. There will also be an additional charge for each dental visit not to mention the amount of time you'll be off work. Traditional veneers are anything but affordable veneers.

Durability

Even though they are incredibly expensive, traditional veneers don't last forever. Even with proper dental hygiene, you'll have to replace most traditional veneers every 5-10 years. 

Invasive and Irreversible

Traditional veneers are an invasive procedure that is irreversible. A dentist must remove .55 mm of tooth enamel before attaching the veneer. The irreversible nature of this procedure is something to keep in mind before deciding to have it done. 

Even Colgate says there are more Cons than Pros, when it comes to traditional veneers.

Press-On Veneers

Press-on veneers, on the other hand, are a more modern dental solution. These veneers are typically a full arch of teeth that snaps into place over existing teeth, instead of a cover on an individual tooth. Custom-made just for you, these modern affordable veneers are made from a thin but durable resin. 

The process to complete these veneers is quite easy and only requires a simple tooth impression along with photos of the existing smile. 

Pros

Accessibility

You can order Press-On Veneers directly from Brighter Image Lab instead of going through a dentist.  You simply send your dental impression through the mail and upload photos of your smile. Press-On Veneers are uniquely accessible. While many dentists do offer similar solutions, the Original Press-On Veneers are only available lab direct.

missing-teeth-smile-makeover

Cost

Press-On Veneers are much cheaper than traditional veneers and there are no expensive dentist office charges. 

Non-Invasive and Irreversible 

Press-On Veneers are so thin that enamel removal is unnecessary. This makes the process reversible and clients can have other procedures done in the future. Press-on veneers can be a cosmetic fix for several years before having another procedure done. 

Cons

Scam Companies

Some companies offer a low-quality version of what they claim are dental veneers. Many unsatisfied customers take to social media and review sites to complain about the fit or appearance of these products.

Many companies have advertised new dental options. Often, it is difficult to determine which are legitimate. Some companies to be wary of are Instasmile, TruSmile Veneers, and many cheap knockoffs found advertising on social media. 

Actual Instasmile Client

fake-looking-instasmile

Brighter Image Lab is a reputable company that has been offering lab direct smile solutions for over 20 years.

Thickness

Press-On Veneers add bulk to the existing smile because there is no enamel removal. People are bothered by this addition both due to discomfort and cosmetic preference, but this discomfort usually subsides with continued use. 

Atypical Dental Option

When done lab direct, Press-On Veneers have no oversight from a dentist. Some people prefer the traditional dentist experience and are uncomfortable with any dental option that doesn't include a dentist. 

Final Thoughts About Veneers Teeth Pros and Cons

There are plenty of reasons someone might choose each of the different types of dental veneers. The most important thing is finding what is right for your smile, and your budget. Hopefully this article has educated you on veneers teeth pros and cons to help you make your decision.

Teeth Veneers

Teeth veneers are a great way to fix a tooth gap. It can be a relatively quick process (depending on the type of veneers chosen) and you don't always have to have any complicated orthodontic work done. Teeth veneers go on top of teeth to hide any imperfections. They can be made from porcelain or composite resin depending on the procedure and your preferences. There are traditional veneers and PressOn Veneers.  

cosmetic dental procedure

Traditional Veneers

Traditional veneers are applied at a dentist office. The procedure requires enamel removal so dentists have to shave off about .55 mm of a patient's teeth before adding veneers. This makes the process irreversible.

The cheapest traditional veneers cost around $1,000 per tooth, in addition to the cost of dental appointments. 

PressOn Veneers 

Press-on veneers are a modern way to create dental veneers. These don't require any enamel to be removed and are reversible if you want a different procedure in the future.

Other Dental Options

Bonding

Bonding can fix teeth gaps. It can be done in a few short visits. The process costs between $200 and $600 per tooth plus the expense of booking a dentist appointment and time off from work. Bonding can fix small teeth gaps but is inadequate for larger issues.

Orthodontics

Another option for fixing a teeth gap is an orthodontic procedure. This can look like traditional metal braces or clear shaping retainers like Invisalign. These processes can cost $3,000 to $10,000 depending on the orthodontist. 

These processes also can be painful and can take a very long time to finish. Some cite having to have braces for multiple years before their alignment issues are fixed.

how-long-do-veneers-last

"How long do veneers last?" It's an important question to ask. You want to be informed about the different aspects about dental veneers and what to expect after ten years down the road. You need to know all the ins and outs so let's dive in. 

How Long Did Veneers Last In The Past?

Dental veneers used to last longer than they do now. A few decades ago, veneers were used for minor, simple dental issues like small chips or imperfections. 

These original versions lasted around fifteen years or more. They also were much less invasive and did not require much enamel removal. 

How Long Do Veneers Last Today?

how-long-do-veneers-last

Today, veneers are very different. They can fix much larger issues like crooked teeth that would have been treated by an orthodontist in the past. 

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers last about 10-15 years. They are the most durable veneers available and also the most expensive. Porcelain veneers can cost around $1,000 per tooth. 

Dentists remove a lot of natural tooth enamel to apply porcelain veneers. This is problematic for younger patients as they need multiple replacements over the years and every application requires more enamel removal. This process is irreversible, and patients (especially in their 20s and 30s) should be extremely cautious. 

Press-On Veneers

Press-On veneers (no-prep veneers) can last 5-7 years. There's no need to remove any enamel. You can even get press-on veneers lab direct, without a dentist. 

Press-On Veneers do not require any enamel removal or irreversible procedures. Many companies do this through a mail-in process. 

Press-On Veneers are also much cheaper than their porcelain competitors. You can get a full arch for as little as $795 lab direct. 

Making Your Veneers Last

It's not only about how long veneers last, but how long do veneers last when you're taking care of them. Make sure to:

Practice Dental Hygine

Always brush your teeth twice a day and add flossing to your morning or night routine. This prevents bacteria build-up.

Chew Carefully

When chewing tough or crunchy food in the front of your mouth. The front area of a dental veneer is more prone to chipping. Instead get into the habit of chewing in the back of your mouth. 

Use A Mouth Guard

wooden-toothbrushes

If you play a high-contact sport or struggle with grinding your teeth at night, invest in a mouth guard. This simple addition can protect your teeth veneers from damage in some of the most problematic situations adding to the longevity of your veneers. 


If you are the proud owner of THE best teeth veneers (thanks to Brighter Image Lab), start now and practice those good habits to protect them. In the years beyond, when people ask you “How long do veneers last?” you can proudly reply “Many years because I take good care of them!”

Vocabulary Help: Fashion Modeling Vs. Commercial Modeling

Fashion modeling is modeling for clothing. This can be print, catalog, or runway. It’s basically anything involving clothes. Measurements are really important in fashion modeling and there is typically a height requirement. 

For women it is often around 5’8” and for men it’s around 6’. Female models typically fit into dress sizes 2-4 or 5-7. Male models wear a suit size 38-42.

Commercial modeling is modeling for anything that isn’t clothing. Models shoot a variety of shots for an endless amount of industries. Measurements do not matter in commercial modeling and you can do it at nearly any age. 

Surprisingly, the majority commercial models are often higher payed than fashion models. There is also an element of acting that goes into commercial modeling. This is a big part of figuring out how to become a model. 

Clean Up Your Diet

healthy-food

This is especially important if you’re a fashion model because the expectation is that you are fit. This is definitely not a requirement but most fashion models I know are vegan. There are a lot of benefits of a vegan diet and being vegan makes you extra conscious about food, which can be helpful.

Make sure you never diet so much that your weight falls below a healthy weight. If you aren’t naturally small enough to be on the skinny end of fashion modeling, just switch to commercial. Your health is never worth risking.

Make An Exercise Plan

This again is because being fit is part of the job. Find something you enjoy doing that you can continue to do. 

Men, make sure you don’t get too bulky, because being too big can keep you from winning some modeling jobs.

Women, work to do more toning exercises than bulking ones. This means using smaller weights with longer reps. For creative ideas, check out John Benton Model Fitness on Instagram.

Fix Your Teeth

If you have dental imperfections, this can really hold you back. You’ll likely have to get those fixed before someone will sign you. Cosmetic dental procedures are expensive and are not covered by dental insurance. A great option for an alternative fix would be Brighter Image Lab. We make products that are perfect for models.

Our team has set up a process where you can get amazing dental veneers straight through the mail. Brighter Image Lab products start at $795, but you can set up a payment plan and pay them off with affordable $24 installments.

If you end up booking a single good modeling job, you will make it all back.

Fix Your Skin

People with good skin are more likely to be signed by an agency and booked on modeling jobs. The reason for this is because this industry is very fast paced with a lot of deadlines.

If the makeup artist doesn’t have to cover up skin problems or the photographer doesn’t have to edit much in post-production, they save a lot of time.

Take some time to assess your skin and figure out what you need to fix. Invest in some sort of face wash, a product to gently exfoliate, moisturizer, and sunscreen. A great resource for even the most complicated skincare questions is r/skincareaddiction on Reddit.

You can search any issues you have, and read product reviews. Many products have harmful chemicals that can damage your skin more than help, so get educated before you buy anything new.

Take Some Digitals

Vocabulary Help: Digitals

Digitals are simple pictures showing different angles of your face and body. 

Wear form-fitting clothes in either black, white, or denim and have someone take several pictures. At the very least you will need pictures of the front and each side of your face (similar to a mugshot) and a shot of your full body. Women should wear heels and avoid noticeable makeup.

Get Signed

This is what people traditionally think about when considering how to become a model. 

You need an agent to start getting work, but you can also start out with a management company that will help connect you with an agency. Research agencies or management companies within the area you want to work. They will likely have a place for you to send in your digitals online. You can also go to an Open Call.

Vocabulary Help: Open Call

An open call is a time when you can visit the agency and talk to a staff-member or agent one-on-one. Information about Open Calls will likely be posted on their website.

Only go to Open Calls for reputable agencies and management companies. Make sure they have an active website and not just social media presence. Never sign a contract with an agent that asks for money up-front.

Reputable agencies will simply take a percentage of the money you make on jobs they get you. That percentage should only be 10-20%.

Now that you know how to become a model do you think you have what it takes?

Russo Dentistry

Justin Russo practices dentistry at Russo Dentistry in Raleigh, North Carolina. His practice seems to be successful with lots of flashy videos on his website and a host of blog posts and vlogs.

Justin Russo is often shot sporting a shiny blue suit and sitting in a manicured lobby casually giving dental advice.

On one occasion, he spoke out about press-on veneers and issues a warning to people interested in press-on dental veneers declaring, “Don’t do it!” He expressed that there were subtle nuances involved in creating dental veneers to be able to make sure they are “properly fitted.”

He urges viewers to come to his office instead of purchasing press-on veneers.

Celebrity Cosmetic Dental Work

The procedures he does (and encourages his viewers to choose) are not cheap. The work he does would likely fall under the category of celebrity cosmetic dental work. This type of dental work used to be only done for Hollywood celebrities since they were the only ones who could afford it - they were the only ones with close-up cameras in their faces all the time. 

In today's culture the average person has the ability to post pictures for hundreds of their friends to see, on any given day. There has been a new shift toward this type of dentistry for the wealthy, non-celebrity demographic. 

But this type of dental work was never meant to be the standard. 

Russo Dentistry Has Made Justin Russo Tons Of Money

Justin Russo at Russo Dentistry has obviously become very wealthy from his dental practice. He is living an advantageous life and is likely quite disconnected from people who struggle to pay for procedures as expensive as his. 

It's easy to see his extravagant way of life from his marketing videos where he sports an expensive suit and $890 Hermès belt

He also posts pictures sporting $595 Gucci loafers.

Monogrammed Items

We've spotted posts of more of extravagant items including ones with his initials, "JMR"  and "doctor" monogrammed on them. 

justin-russo-monogrammed-shoes

There's no problem with owning upscale items, but having this much highlighted makes one wonder who is footing the bill of his lavish lifestyle. It is likely his patients paying exorbitant amounts for his overpriced procedures. 

You have better things to do with your money than giving it to Russo Dentistry and funding the items above. Despite his claims, you have better options.

There Are Many People Who Cannot Afford His Expensive Procedures

Many of the people who need cosmetic dental help are from lower income brackets and cannot afford Russo Dentistry and the fancy procedures offered there. His claims that people should avoid cheaper procedures may unnecessarily scare them away from affordable dental care.

His statements in his videos can cause so much damage that he may never have anticipated from his elitist viewpoint.

As a dental professional, his claim is “expert testimony” although it is incorrect.

Russo’s large blanket-statements in his video may in fact violate several sections of the official ADA code of conduct that are set in place to protect the public from predatory dentists.

A company called Brighter Image Lab has thousands of satisfied customers that have purchased PressOn Veneers. The founder, Bil Watson, has created processes that allow them to create customized dental veneers that take into account the subtle nuances Russo mentioned. 

Brighter Image Lab PressOn Veneers are also more affordable for the income brackets that don't have the disposable income for expensive cosmetic dental work or $890 belts.

Other dentists may also create press-on veneers that are completely satisfactory and will cause no harm to patients wearing them. 

He Has No Evidence To Support His Statements

Justin Russo at Russo Dentistry does not disclose any sources in his video about press-on veneers, but simply claims that patients won’t get the same results as going to his office.

He expresses that he knows more about creating veneers, which could cause people to fear that other dentists will give their teeth a “chicklet” appearance.  

Section 5.F.1 of the American Dental Association Code of Conduct expresses that on published communications, dentists cannot imply that their work is better than others without reasonable substantiation.

Russo’s arbitrary views are not reasonably substantiated.

He Misrepresents His Competence

In his claims, Russo implies an almost omnipotent understanding of the world of press-on veneers.

He does not cite external evidence.

We have no reason to believe he has studied the topic in depth or recently. Having the title of dentist does not mean he is all-knowing about all dental solutions, especially options that are sold commercially and not at his office. His claim may violate section 5.E

He Lacks Dedication To Reasonable Alternatives

Dentists are required to inform patients of any reasonable alternatives to the treatments they propose (section 1.A).

The language in Russo’s video about press-on veneers (as well as his article highlighted on his website’s front page titled Cheap Dental Alternatives) promotes himself and his capabilities rather than a professional, balanced explanation.

Dentists who make generalized claims like the ones in this article cause great harm to people who struggle with dental imperfections and cannot afford any type of cosmetic dental procedure. Using his platform as a dental professional to brashly dismiss press-on veneers is out of touch at best, and a violation at worst.

cosmetic-dentistry-screw

Millions of Americans are unable to pay for necessary dental work, much less expensive cosmetic procedures. People with bad teeth who cannot afford cosmetic procedures often struggle to find a good job.

Patients like this should be encouraged to find high-quality cheaper alternatives, not scared away from any options that don’t happen to be Russo Dentistry.

Britghter Image Lab

Brighter Image Lab is one of those high-quality options. Our team uses modern digital design technology and 3D printing to create amazing dental veneers for thousands of people. Our smile designers customize each individual order to the finest detail.

We make sure our teeth veneers look natural, by using a special resin originally developed by NASA, so our veneers don’t have an awkward “chicklet” look.

smile-makeover

Dentists have a financial interest in keeping their patients away from cheaper products instead of presenting them to patients as reasonable alternatives.

Do you trust your dentist enough to avoid even looking at other options? Would you rather be someone who sees the full picture?

The cosmetic dental industry makes billions of dollars so it pays to have a monopoly on cosmetic procedures. Do you feel that dentists have worked to keep their illegal monopolies like they have in the past? Let us know in the comments below.
