Frequently Asked Questions
Do clip-on veneers look fake?
If we would compare traditional veneers with snap-on veneers, removable veneers may not appear as natural. The main reason lies in the fact that they are made of a material called acrylic resin. Acrylic resin is less clear than porcelain.
Another problem may exist in the teeth’ color. This is the explanation why snap-on veneer dental companies deliver numerous coloring choices to choose from in order to achieve the closest appearance and color of your natural teeth.
Can you eat with snap-on veneers?
It varies, but most dental companies say they produce snap-on veneers you can eat with. However, you need to be careful not to bite down on anything too hard or chew on anything too tough.
Snap-on veneers are very strong and they won’t break when you bite down on something hard, but they can get damaged if you try to chew through something thick or tough with them on.
You should bear in mind, still, that eating and drinking with removable veneers may wear them off, meaning you may need to change them frequently.
