You know. I have no idea why this was not thought of a while back.
Actually I am certain it has. I can imagine that’s how we got our vampire teeth as children on Halloween.
but here is the concept of Snap on Smile. You go to the dentist, get measurements or a full on imprint of your bite, then they send your information to the crew that makes snap on smile. That crew builds you a bright white removable cap for all of our teeth and then they ship them to your dentist.
As a wise warning to people who might have bad or simi bad teeth. If the dentist thinks he or she could get more money… (Oh wait let me say this proper as society likes people to say this as if we are in some evil lawsuit controlled world). If it would be in your best interest to pay up to $10g+ for an alternative route, count on that being the option you are offered. You have to think of the dentist being the same guy who sells new cars. You gotta get it done, you have to pay for it no matter what price he offers. You have to. Good thing you got insurance right? To bad they don’t make car dealership insurance. Well I guess they do, but you gotta get hurt to collect. Ok I am rambling, more on doctors and insurance here.
Really I would like to see the Snap on Smile company or one just like it to open up it’s own location somewhere so people can get a good custom fit set of bites so they can dodge the whole set of fees and doctors bills from a dentist visit. or heck they just ship you some mud, you bit it and send it back. along with the mud, or putty or what ever, they send a few books to read and a few charts to fill out yourself so you can cover specific requests of information so you can get an exact proper fit. That would fricken rock.
But no, you have to see a dentist and gamble getting your teeth yanked out or a huge root canal on a bunch of your teeth. And you have to deal with ” I recommend ” blah blah . Of course it probably is in your best interest to fix that rott in your mouth. So you have to go that route.
The point I am trying to get at is they are pushing and suggesting that it will help a jacked up smile. When actually it will not help people with rot and it will not help people who need braces. At best Snap on Smile will be a temporary fix when you crack a good tooth and have to be in public soon and have no time to go to the dentist or it is a Holiday. but they charge a “low introductory first payment of just $49″. That in it’s self makes my stomach hurt from laughing way too hard. under the conditions that you would want to use Snap on Smile, I don’t see any good reason that you would have to make payments on the thing. Payments that are stated as “low introductory price”. Really? This price goes up?
This just seems like it will only motivate people to do nothing at all.
it seems the proper legal and healthy targeted market of people who could benefit from Snap on Smile would be the vein and wealthy who go through the time consuming sizing and fitting for “just in case they crack a tooth” because if you crack a tooth and are at the dentist trying to pay $2g and going through the fitting, you may as well just fix it.
