DO THEY DAMAGE MY TEETH
There is no drilling, shaving of natural tooth structure, grinding, or any other procedure necessary to wear clip on veneers. They are completely reversible and cause no damage to existing teeth. We use exactly the same technology as invisalign braces, the only difference is the colour and the fact ours are passive - They hold your teeth in place like a retainer. Other than that they sit exactly the same and fit exactly the same. Invisalign do not ruin your teeth and nor do clip on veneers;
* Their function is purely cosmetic
* The veneers are not designed to affect the structure of the function of the teeth.
* There is no clinical contact.
You must wear invisalign braces for 20 hours a day for up to 3 years. Secret veneers are exactly the same but tooth coloured. As long as good oral hygiene is maintained you will be 100% fine wearing veneers. The veneers do not contribute to plaque build up or tooth decay no more or less if you didn't wear it. As long as you follow good oral hygiene, the veneers are more than safe.
*The client agrees to wear secret veneers at their own risk.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO MAKE
The timescale reflects the time we spend perfecting your new smile, we hand carve each and every veneer personalised to your own individual mouth. This usually takes 14 - 21 working days. On receipt of a suitable impression we will endeavour to manufacture your product within 30 working days. If there is a problem with your order during the production process, we will contact you to discuss any amendments to the order.
HOW DO THEY FEEL IN THE MOUTH
It is important to understand that removable veneers ALWAYS make your teeth feel:
*thicker than your normal teeth,
*longer than your normal teeth,
*wider than your normal teeth.
*bigger than your normal teeth.
This is because they are worn over the tips of your teeth like a very thin gum shield, we are not removing any of your sensitive tooth structure only adding to what you have by 0.4mm. It is much the same as wearing an orthodontic retainer.
HOW DOES IT STAY IN, WILL IT FALL OUT
Its exclusive design is flexible, very strong, and slides right over your own natural teeth, instantly giving you a beautiful smile. It requires no cutting down of tooth tissue, no dental injections, and no bonding to tooth tissue. Secret Veneers stay on your teeth by engaging the undercuts around your teeth, so it does not impinge on your gum tissue nor does it cover the roof of your mouth, making it look and feel very natural. Easily removable, completely reversible and an excellent option for patients looking for a non-invasive, temporary and affordable approach to cosmetic dentistry. Secret veneers use the natural curvature of your teeth to hold in place (due to the material's flexibility) by utilizing the heights of contour of each individual tooth. The saliva between the tooth and appliance causes a suction affect! They will NOT fall out when kissing/ ski diving/ drinking etc.
PLEASE NOTE; If you a lot of tooth loss, the veneers will sit over the void and hide your tooth loss but you may need to add some polygrip to this area. This is only for clients with over 4 missing teeth.
WHAT DO I DO IF THEY DON'T FIT ME
Once you receive your veneers please try them on. Once you have fitted them if they are too loose or the teeth are visible DONT PANIC! You have 14 working days to tell us of any fit issues so we can rectify them for you. These are simple alterations and although 70% of veneers fit first time 30% require a remake. Send us an email image of you wearing the veneers and the problem and it will be rectified in a matter of minutes. Include a message of the alterations you need, return the veneers and we will resolve the issues right away. DO NOT PANIC, it is easily fixed.
HOW DOES THIS PROCESS WORK
A self impression kit will be posted to you after we receive your online order. You will receive 2 trays, putty and instructions in the post. Simply bite the putty and post your impression to the dental lab and your veneers will be made. Once the lab receive your impression, the veneer production process takes around 14-21 working days, the lab technician can ask for an extra t5 working days if he/she feels this would be beneficial to your overall design process. On receipt of a suitable impression we will endeavour to manufacture your instasmile product within 30 working days. If there is a problem with your order during the production process, we will contact you to discuss any amendments to the order.

The self-impression kit allows you to take an impression of your teeth in the comfort of your own home. The lab provide you with everything you need and it will only take around 5 minutes to complete. Instructions and photos can be found here- How to take an impression.
CAN I EAT WITH THEM IN
YES absolutely. We have clients who choose to remove them to eat and others who keep them in, do what feels comfortable for you. However if you remove them they will obviously last longer, However we are not responsible for accidental damage while eating.
HOW DO I CLEAN THEM
Veneers can be cleaned with veneer varnish paste available in the shop and a toothbrush. Do not use boiling water as this will damage the product.
DO I NEED TO SEE A DENTIST FOR THESE
No we rely on you to take your own impressions. No dentist is required. But regular dental hygiene is a must! You can however ask your own dentist to take your impressions and you can post to us if you cannot get a good impression.
HOW LONG DO THEY LAST
Your Secret Veneer is made out of high strength material. We cannot guarantee if they will last 1 week or 3 years, all we can guarantee is that all veneers are made the same using the same material.
Our veneers will last as long as you want them to. This is defined by general care and attention when taking them in or out, following the guidelines to use two fingers to extract the veneers. One finger at one side causes the material to form a stress point, which over time will cause a fracture. So to avoid this always use two fingers, both sides of the veneer and slowly release from the clinical teeth.
It is all down to many factors such as general wear, how you use them, what you eat, how you remove them, how you put them in, and how you clean them. How long your restoration lasts depends on your unique bite and how you take care of your appliance.
Some patients have been wearing theirs for 3+ years. Teeth also do naturally shift overtime as we age which will change the fit over time. Replacements are £100! Secret veneers are not made of porcelain they will not last forever they will break just as a retainer would if you are not careful.
If you step on them, eat toffees, grind your teeth, let your dog chew them they will snap! It is really dependent on the user. We always keep a master copy of your impressions so if you fancy a spare set just order in the shop!
CAN I HAVE A REFUND AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN MADE
Secret veneers are a custom-made product and so are tailored specifically for your mouth. If they have been worn and the hygiene seal has been broken then we do not accept the product back due to hygiene reasons. We cannot resell them and cannot offer you a refund for a personally bespoke customised item. However the consumer rights act 2015 grants us the option and time to fix your veneers by remaking them if they do not fit due to a false impression provided by you. As your secret veneer is made to measurements you have given us from your Impression Kit you are responsible for ensuring that these measurements are correct. You can find information and tips on how to measure provided with your Impression Kit or by contacting us. If there is a fit issue we will not stop working with you until you are happy with a veneer that fits you.
Secret Veneers come with a standard FREE 12 month manufacturing warranty which starts from 2 days after the product has been dispatched. This covers any faults found with your original veneers that are deemed to have occurred due to a manufacturing fault. A list of manufacturing faults can be found below.
Product short on gum line*
These manufacturing faults have occurred due to a fault with the impression provided by the customer. This will require a new impression from the customer before the issue can be resolved, and the veneers to be returned. We will need to see evidence of the fit issue before we can remake your veneers, i.e a photograph of the issue, otherwise a remake will not be possible.
The Manufacturing Warranty does not cover/excludes the following.
Misuse of the product
Change of mind involving colour
CAN I SPEAK OKAY WEARING THESE
The mouth is so sensitive that anything new in the mouth takes a period of adjustment; this is the same for permanent veneers. For the first few days or weeks you will have lisp but this will go as your mouth gets used to the product. Having said that we supply Xfactor finalists, MTV cast members, Actors and Drag Artists please see here www.instagram.com/secretveneers for client reviews/ singing/ eating etc. It just takes time and perseverance!
DOES IT MAKE YOUR TEETH LOOK BIGGER
In some cases the teeth may feel bulky. The up side is that we can cover just about any defects. Secret veneers only change the look/aesthetics of your teeth or change the shape of your teeth. However they CANNOT change the bite or your natural occlusion. We work with everyone to cover your defects, every case is different and so we cannot guarantee the same result for every client. Working with different size teeth and different shapes means your smile is as unique to you as your fingerprint.
DO THEY GO UP TO THE GUM LINE INSIDE MY PALATE AND OUTSIDE FACING TEETH
We can only make what the impression shows us, sometimes when clients take their impressions the putty pushes the gum up if they have inflamed gums so when we get an impression through we get an impression that may not be correct to character and we have to take that as gospel that is what your gums look like as we never meet you in person. We make each veneer to the gumline represented on the impression so this in turn can either be too long or too short, if that is the case it isn't something that we have necessarily done wrong!! There is an easy fix to this, we can trim it down slightly or if it is too short we can re pull down onto the master model and correct this for you and adjust the gumline from the images you give us. In some cases this will be too severe and we will need a new impression and start the process over. It is nothing that we have done wrong, as we do not physically see your teeth but in the end we will get it fixed for you we will get it right, we will never leave you with a veneer you are unhappy with, we will not stop until they fit.
For the inside of the veneers NO they do not always go up to the gumline or meet the gumline because the undercuts are needed to stop the clip on veneers getting stuck in your mouth! Usually in older clients people with slight gum disease or gum issues we have to raise the arch away from the gumline. Sometimes we need to leave it clear just for fit, the inside of the veneer you are not going to see, if you do have this issue on your veneers you receive it is there for a reason we do not do it for no reason it is for your safety IT IS NOT A MISFIT, it is there for a reason, the reason is a dental health reason or for a fit reason. Everything we do is done for a particular reason.
DO YOU COVER ALL THE TEETH TO THE WISDOM TEETH
NO we leave the wisdom teeth and last back molar free so that you can close your mouth and so we do not affect your bite. We need to get the best fit of the veneer, if you have a terminal tooth that is one of the teeth we need to anchor the appliance too either a 7 0r 8 we can't encroach onto that and that is mainly because of the bite. If we gag your bite open we will give you painful TMJ problems, usually we can get the veneer to go back to the 4 0r 5 if your 6 is damaged, if tooth 6 is damaged then we can't anchor to tooth 7 so we have to finish it on tooth 5. We always do this for a very specific dental health reason, it isn't for laziness or cheapness or that we can't be bothered to cover it it is the fact we physically can't do it because of the physiology of the dentitions. We always work specifically so we are not going to impact on a clients bite, we are keeping the veneers passive, we are under all the general dental councils scope of practice purely because the veneers we provide are passive, we make a product that is passive and is inactive and doesn't correct or change the physical dental bite.
WHY DOES MY TONGUE TOUCH THE VENEER EDGE AND I HAVE MORE SALIVA THAN USUAL
As with all foreign objects placed in the oral cavity two main factors occur to in turn prevent them from being in the mouth, it is the mouths own personal defence mechanism. One is of course the tongue, this is drawn to foreign objects and constantly tries to remove said object until such a time passes and the tongue gets sued to it. The other is saliva, we produce saliva for many reasons, one of them is to cleanse the mouth of foreign objects, again like the tongue it takes time to get used to. Now with all this knowledge we have, it is still evident that a few clients struggle with the change. This is normal and some take longer than others. This is a by product of the mouths ingenious way of protecting itself. We simply cannot gauge as to how and if this will happen to you. The only thing we can ensure however is that we make the best looking veneers we can, the rest is upto Mother Nature!
CAN WE MAKE YOUR VENEERS SMALLER
All veneers are made to the correct occlusion. Granted all clients will have some size change but this is up to 0.3mm. But in the mouth this always feels way bigger. We always make veneers to the very tips of the natural teeth, so when a client asks us can you make my veneers smaller? this is impossible! because then we would have to physically shave the enamel, if we made them any thinner than 0.3mm they would snap.
WHAT ARE THE CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Remove the appliance and brush it before bedtime. You do not have to soak the appliance over night with cleaning solution. Treat it as you would a brace or retainer with love and care. Purchase veneer varnish here to keep them pristine.
