About Alpha Veneers 

Alpha Veneers is a brand of clip-on veneers. They advertise their product as an alternative to traditional permanent veneers, invisible braces, retainers, and other dental procedures. 

Clip-on veneers are an easy way to improve the esthetics of your teeth without expensive procedures. They can give you a whiter smile, cover crooked or chipped teeth, and boost your confidence.

Alpha Veneers offers a simple at-home process, using an impression kit to help you design your customized veneers. They also offer multiple models and shades to choose from.

How Does Alpha Veneers Work?

Alpha Veneers requires you to take an impression of your teeth at home. Once you mail the impressions back, Alpha Veneers will make a model for you and send it to your doorstep.

1. Order Your Veneers

Alpha Veneers offers two models: one for occasional wear and one for daily wear. Depending on which teeth you’d like to correct, you can purchase a top or bottom arch on its own or a set of both. 

Next, you’ll choose your shade. Alpha Veneers has three shades you can order:

  • BL1 – the brightest white available. They describe it as “blindingly artificial.”1
  • A1 – their most popular shade. It’s more natural than BL1 and gives the appearance of having had your teeth whitened.
  • A2 – a light ivory shade. Unless you already have extremely bright teeth, this color makes your teeth one shade brighter than their natural appearance.

Once you make your choices and confirm your purchase, Alpha Veneers will mail your impression kit to your home.

2. Make Your Impressions

Your impression kit will ship with instructions for making your impressions. Once finished, you’ll mail them to Alpha Veneers.

If you make a mistake in your impressions, contact Alpha Veneer’s customer service team, and they will send you a new kit for a nominal fee.

3. Receive and Clip On Your Veneers

Upon receiving your impressions, Alpha Veneers will manufacture your unique, removable veneers and ship them to you within 2 to 3 weeks.

Inserting your clip-on veneers is easy. They clip onto your teeth and don’t require additional equipment or tools.

Costs and Financing Options

The cost of clip-on veneers will depend on the model you choose.

The Occasional Wear Veneers, designed for use only on certain occasions, start at $299 for a single arch and $499 for a dual arch.2

The Regular Wear Veneers, designed for daily use, start at $599 for a single arch and $899 for a dual arch.

Alpha Veneers does not offer any financing options. You must pay the full price upfront to purchase these removable veneers. 

Return Policy and Refunds

Alpha Veneers allows you to return your veneers under specific circumstances.

You must return your clip-on veneers within 7 days of the date you placed the order. If the impression kit is unopened, you will receive a full refund. If you have used the kit, you will receive a refund minus $75 of the original cost.3

If they deem your impressions unsuitable for removable veneers, you will receive a 75% refund. If you have made your impressions incorrectly and ask for a refund, you will receive 50% back.

Alpha Veneers offers a 30-day warranty. If you do not contact them within the warranty period regarding a return, you will not receive a refund.

  • Four or more missing teeth in a row

Alpha Veneers are generally suitable if you’re looking for an inexpensive alternative to permanent veneers. They’re best for correcting minor esthetic issues and for people who want to be able to take them out at will.

Alpha Veneers might be a good option if you want straighter teeth without a procedure. Always consult your dentist about whether veneers are the right choice for you.

Removable Veneers vs. Permanent Veneers

Alpha Veneers offer an alternative to permanent dental veneers. A dentist will install your permanent veneers. You won’t be able to take them out like you can with removable veneers. 

Clip-on veneers don’t require a dental procedure, and you can remove them anytime. There are a few other differences between permanent and removable veneers that may factor into your decision.

The Life Expectancy of Permanent vs. Clip-On Veneers

Permanent veneers are typically made of porcelain and attached individually by tooth instead of as one large set. They have a long life expectancy. Research shows that 91% of traditional veneers survive for 20 years.4

Clip-on veneers have a more variable life expectancy. Alpha Veneers last anywhere from 1 week to 2 years, depending on the user.5

Health Implications of Permanent vs. Clip-On Veneers

Porcelain veneers come with risks. Possible side effects include:

  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Tooth damage
  • The possible need to replace them at the end of their lifespan

Research shows they don’t affect gingival health if you are vigilant about oral hygiene.6

Clip-on veneers may come with fewer risks. They are easier to remove, which is helpful if you develop sensitivity. They are also much easier to clean, which can help the soft tissues in your mouth stay healthy.7

Cost of Permanent vs. Clip-on Veneers

Alpha Veneers cost anywhere from $299 to $899, depending on the model and number of arches you purchase. Clip-on veneers are an affordable option compared to traditional veneers. 

Permanent veneers cost anywhere from $500 to $2,500 per tooth. The price depends on what material you choose. While the cost is much higher than removable veneers, they last significantly longer.
