I have a class reunion coming up and am not thrilled with my teeth. I don’t have a ton of money and was thinking of getting snap on smile. It seems pretty reasonably priced. My dentist suggested lumineers because they’re better. I wanted to get a second opinion before deciding. Is it really better?

While your dentist is right that Lumineers are better than snap-on smile, they are not temporary. Plus, the cost significantly more than snap-on smile.
Lumineers are a brand of porcelain veneers. In other words, they’re tiny wafers of porcelain that get permanently bonded onto your teeth after your dentist has them made to his specifications.
If you just want something for that one night and don’t want to spend any significant amount of money, then I’d stick with your plan of snap-on smile. If you want to invest in a permanent, gorgeous smile, then Lumineers (or any other brand of porcelain veneers) would be the better option.
