Traditional veneers are a popular way to transform a smile. However, they require a substantial investment of time and money. Placing them involves dental work, including grinding down existing teeth. Snap-on veneers are an exciting new alternative that is sweeping the cosmetic dentistry field. Here’s what you need to know.
How Do They Work?
The first step is to make impressions of your teeth, using the kit we will send you. Your kit will contain two impression trays and six containers of putty. Simply combine two types of putty to activate them, then place the putty in the impression tray. Place the tray into your mouth and press it into your teeth. In just three minutes it’s ready to remove. Let the impressions dry completely, then send them to us, using the prepaid mailing package we provide.
Once we receive your impressions, we set to work making your veneers. They will exactly match the contours of your teeth for a stable and comfortable fit. You’ll get your new veneers in 14 to 20 working days. Order your kit today!
What Do They Do?
These comfortable, snug veneers are made of ultrathin material. They not only fit closely over your teeth for a polished, white smile, also can cover the gaps left by missing teeth. They can be made to smooth over crooked teeth, so your smile is even.
The end result is a youthful, bright smile that lifts your whole appearance. Many people find that it boosts their confidence to be able to smile at people and feel good about how they look.
How Do I Use Them?
Snap-on veneers are simple and easy to wear. Just slide them in place, and they are ready to wear all day. They will not interfere with speaking, and you can eat and drink while wearing them.

How Snap-On Veneers Differ From Traditional Veneers
One of the hottest new trends in having a great smile today is snap-on veneers. They’re easy, affordable and are able to give you the smile of your dreams in less than a few weeks without even taking a trip to the doctor’s office — in fact, you can do it all from the comfort of home and just wait for your clip-on veneers to show up in the mail.
But snap-on veneers aren’t the only game in town. In addition to various cosmetic dentistry procedures that run the gamut from braces and teeth whitening all the way up to crowns, implants and dentures for highly damaged, misshapen or missing teeth, porcelain veneers can also give you a great smile with minimal work.
Originally, porcelain veneers were invented by a Hollywood dentist back in the 1920s to help solve a problem. As cameras and film technology got better and more close-ups were being utilized in cinema, actors that lacked the perfect smile were running into problems with their misshapen teeth and crooked smiles. Instead of years of dental work, porcelain veneers could be placed on the teeth as a quick cosmetic fix — and it wouldn’t even have to hold up the production schedule.
Today, porcelain veneers are available to anyone who wants a great smile, but let’s see how they stack up to clip-on veneers.
Characteristics of Porcelain Veneers
Unlike snap-on veneers that clip on to your teeth and give you a great smile instantly, porcelain veneers are permanently adhered to the teeth. They’re made of thin shells of porcelain and they’re actually glued in place atop your existing teeth.
But it’s not just about placing a veneer and calling it a day. Your teeth actually need to be shaped and ground down somewhat before a veneer can be affixed. After all, porcelain veneers aren’t stickers — they’re dental devices that are permanently placed on your teeth and they give the impression of a perfectly shaped and aligned tooth.
While veneers can be placed on multiple teeth, each veneer only really corrects issues with the tooth receiving the veneer. But unless your smile is virtually perfect already, you’ll need multiple veneers for your teeth to really look and feel their best.
If you have several teeth that need some help, that means you’ll need a veneer for each, and you might even need to schedule a different visit for each tooth as the actual installation process can take some fine tweaking. But veneers are powerful, allowing for adjustments in shape, size and color. They’re also long-lasting, and they look and act just like natural teeth.
Characteristics of Snap-On Veneers
Due to the way in which porcelain veneers are installed, there’s no mistaking porcelain veneers as a temporary fix. They’re as permanent as other types of dental work, and as we mentioned earlier, some of your tooth enamel will have to be ground away to make room for the veneer. That requires a dental visit so that the work can be done by a professional, but not everyone is at that point where they want to make such drastic and permanent changes to their teeth.
With snap-on veneers, you can get that Hollywood smile in no time at all. Your teeth won’t be permanently altered, and you’ll get a high-quality set of veneers that cover up all those gaps and imperfections that are distracting and take away from the quality of your interactions. While they’re not permanent, you can even drink and eat while wearing your veneers, though chewing gum or eating hard foods with them in is not advisable if you’d like to ensure the longevity of your veneers.
But other than some meals and situations, you can leave your clip-on veneers in all the time. Sure, you can take them out while you sleep, but everyday activities including speaking and the other things you do shouldn’t be a problem. Or you can always just pop them on before that important video chat or anytime you’re in a high visibility environment — we won’t tell anyone!
Snap-On Veneers Are a Great Compromise
If you’re not sure whether you want to spend thousands on improving your smile and the countless visits that you may need to get there with traditional cosmetic dentistry, snap-on veneers are a great compromise to porcelain veneers and other complicated solutions. In just a few short steps, you can own your very own set of beautiful veneers that you can use whenever your smile needs a quick pick-me-up, or you can leave them in all day for a great smile at any time.
