Everyone wants a smile that gives them confidence, and snap-on teeth tries to deliver on that promise with minimal cost. If a patient purchases a set online, the product may not reflect the right size, color, texture, and proportions that blend with the unique facial characteristics of each person. However, if a patient likes what they see, snap-on veneers may offer some short-term benefits for patients who aren’t ready for permanent veneers.
Dentists know that healthy, long-lasting veneers require a fit that comes down to hundreds of a millimeter. If not, bacterial plaque traps along the edges and may cause gum inflammation and tooth decay. Some snap-on veneers are made to fit better than others, and patients should consider consultation with a dentist before making a decision to purchase them. Only a dentist can diagnose hidden cavities or chronic gum disease, and wearing these products could lead to advanced problems with more expense and treatment.
While various companies offer snap-on systems online, some dentists also fabricate these products at a significantly lower cost than regular veneers. In this case, you get the best of both worlds: Lower cost and professional oversight. Plus, a dentist may offer other options for a smile that’s healthier, more durable, and even more beautiful than imagined. Bonding, whitening, aligner straightening, reshaping, and polishing are just some of the options a dentist can give for a patient to consider.
