Everything You Need to Know About Temporary Veneers
If you're considering a smile makeover, you've probably encountered various cosmetic procedures and options, including temporary veneers. Temporary veneers are an affordable, comfortable, and practical way to transform your smile without spending an arm and a leg. They're painless, non-invasive, and hassle-free, and they hide any imperfections in your smile, like discoloration or chipped teeth. This gives you a natural, beautiful, and stunning smile makeover.
In this article, we cover everything you need to know about temporary veneers so you can make an informed decision.
What Are Temporary Veneers?
Temporary veneers are clip-on veneers that slide over your existing teeth, improving the cosmetic appearance of your smile. They're made with composite or acrylic resin and look much like permanent porcelain veneers.
When creating temporary veneers, an impression of your teeth is taken using a mold. This mold is referred to as a wax mock-up, and it creates a model of your current smile, including tooth contour and relative proportions of neighboring teeth. Dentists use this to prepare each tooth model before building them back up with tooth-colored wax to simulate veneers.
Once you get your temporary veneers, you can clip them on instantly and see how they feel and look.
How Long Do Temporary Veneers Last?
On average, snap-on veneers last between 1 to 5 years. However, this varies depending on the user and their maintenance. For example, if you eat with your temporary veneers in, they may only last for a while. Similarly, they'll wear and tear quickly if you apply a lot of biting force.
To ensure your temporary veneers last long, clean them regularly and take them out when eating. While eating with veneers isn't forbidden, certain types of foods may damage your veneers, including hard, sticky, and crunchy foods. Foods that contain color additives like ketchup and turmeric can also stain your veneers, making it wise to steer clear of them.
Other habits that ensure your veneers last long include:
- Daily home care, such as brushing - Avoid flossing between your temporary veneers as they may become loose since they have no gaps in between.
- Not using your teeth as a tool, like opening a bottle
Will People Know I'm Wearing Temporary Veneers?
If your temporary veneers are created right in a high-quality lab and by experienced professionals, they shouldn't be noticeable at all. Remember, temporary veneers are designed to give you a natural-looking smile, so they're extremely life-like and don't stick out like a sore thumb. Besides, with today's technological advancements, removable veneers are so natural and lifelike, which makes them virtually undetectable.
Most people can't tell if someone is wearing temporary veneers unless the user informs them. If you don't want people to know you're wearing temporary veneers, get them from an experienced professional like TruSmile.
How Much Do Temporary Veneers Cost?
On average, temporary veneers cost between $200 and $500, with some going as low as $25 and others as high as $1000. This is quite affordable when compared to the cost of permanent veneers, which cost an average of $800 to $2000 per tooth. In this case, if you get permanent veneers for five teeth, you pay an outstanding $4000 or $10,000. On the other hand, with temporary veneers, you pay one single cost for the entire clip-on.
It's essential to note that the cost of your temporary veneers may vary depending on where you're getting them from. Some dental practices charge a premium price, while others charge a more affordable fee. Regardless of where you purchase yours from, ensure you're getting a quality product that improves the cosmetic appearance of your smile.
You can get a high-quality set of custom-made removable veneers from TruSmile for only $499. You can make a single payment or make two payments of $240.
Oftentimes, cheaper temporary veneers (under $100) tend to look fake and bulky and are easily noticeable. If you want a more natural and dazzling smile, go for average-priced ($400) temporary veneers.
Why Choose Temporary Veneers
You may be wondering why you should choose temporary veneers over permanent ones. Here's why:
1. They're Non-Invasive
With temporary veneers, there's no need to undergo any invasive cosmetic procedures such as drilling to get your natural-looking and shiny smile. There are also no dentist visits required. You can make the impression of your teeth in the comfort of your home and send the model to the dental clinic to make your removable veneers. They'll then ship them back to you, and you can start wearing your clip-ons immediately to enhance your smile.
2. They're Painless
It's no secret that permanent veneers can cause minimal pain, discomfort, and soreness, especially after the procedure. Some patients even report experiencing tooth sensitivity with their permanent veneers. Luckily, with temporary veneers there's:
- No pain
- No needles
- No drilling
- No stress
- No mess
Simply clip them on, and you're good to go.
3. They're Affordable
As mentioned earlier, removable veneers cost significantly less than permanent porcelain veneers. This means you can transform your smile and gain confidence at a fraction of the price. If you don't have money to splurge on expensive veneers, we recommend getting temporary veneers.
4. They're Custom-Made
Removable veneers are specifically created to fit the current structure, shape, and look of your teeth. The impressions are used to create a model that fits perfectly over your natural teeth for a stunning and bright smile. Similarly, you can choose the shade of your veneers, from a bleaching shade to a not-very-white shade. This customization ensures the final product is not only natural-looking but hardly detectable.
5. They're Hassle-Free
You can remove and wear temporary veneers as you see fit with no hassle. Whether you're getting ready for bed, going out for lunch, or having breakfast at home, you can quickly detach them and put them back on. Since they're removable, you can continue caring for your natural teeth when your veneers are not in use.
6. They Improve Your Smile
If you're unhappy with your teeth and smile, snap-on veneers are worth considering. They offer a quick, effective, affordable solution to hiding your imperfections and rebuilding your confidence. Clip-on veneers also give you the flexibility to address cosmetic issues directly to enhance your cosmetic appearance.
Do Temporary Veneers Fall Off?
Contrary to popular belief, removable veneers don't fall off. They may appear light, but they're manufactured with dental-grade polymers which grip onto your natural teeth. If you take good care of them, they won't fall off or become loose. Sudden impacts such as being hit by a ball when playing sports can cause your veneers to fall off, making it crucial to remove them.
