Hi everyone! So in my last trip to the US I visited CVS with my fiancé Seba and we found these “Perfect Smile Veneers” for $14.
I’ve been very privileged in my life in that I have had access to dental care - everything from regular dentist visits to orthodontic braces and professional teeth whitening. However, not everyone is as fortunate as I have been. To not feel like you can smile and laugh because you are insecure about your teeth would be awful and so I hope this video can maybe help some of you find an affordable option to help out in this area.
A mouldable bit of plastic adheres to your top row of teeth and holds the veneers in place. You have to soften it in boiling water (be careful!) before applying it to your top row of teeth. It definitely pushed out my top lip and felt quite bulky and awkward in my mouth. Talking was a struggle - it felt like wearing a retainer. I also cannot understand why they made the gums so red! It would be such an improvement if they were a more natural colour. You can’t eat or sleep while wearing this, but drinking is ok (I would recommend using a straw).
These would be difficult to use for everyday wear but I think with some practice you could make it work. If the gums are poking into your mouth, I think filing them down could fix that. I would recommend them for photos (school picture day for example) or for times when you won’t be talking a lot or eating.
