I am looking for an affordable way to fix my teeth. I have some spacing between my teeth and I know I won’t be able to afford high-dollar cosmetic dentistry. Is there anything out there that may work to make my teeth look straight? I’m hoping for a quick fix. Maybe in the same price range as dentures?

There is an affordable treatment to dramatically improve the look of your teeth called “Snap-On Smile“. It is a fraction of the cost of expensive cosmetic dentistry techniques and it will temporarily fix the spaces between your teeth. Also, cosmetic dentistry requires extensive training beyond dental school and with Snap-On Smile, any dentist should be able to do it. To begin you will need to select the shade and style that you want. Then an impression is taken of your teeth and sent to a laboratory so they can customize the Snap-On Smile to fit snugly over your teeth.
Simply snap it into place and remove it whenever you want. Again, this is a temporary solution that will likely last approximately three to five years. This treatment costs about $1,000-$1,500. This truly is an affordable way to fix your smile when the cost of one porcelain veneer comes in right around the same cost.
Tooth bonding is another option for you that is inexpensive. Although, this all depends on your specific case and how many spaces you have. With direct dental bonding the dentist will apply composite to each side of the tooth to fill the space. A color will be used to match your existing tooth color perfectly. This kind of work requires a trained cosmetic dentist since artistic ability is required to blend the bond seamlessly to your other teeth. Tooth bonding will also last longer than a Snap-On Smile.
I hope this information was helpful and you find a treatment that fits into your budget.
