TruSmile Veneers are dental appliances that cover your existing teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing look.1 This brand advertises affordable snap-on veneers, instead of committing to the cost and lengthy process of traditional permanent veneers.
Made from U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved German co-polyester pucks, TruSmile veneers are an immediate, yet temporary solution to improving your smile.
These custom removable veneers are BPA-free, made with the latest 3D technology, and come with their own travel case.
TruSmile veneers address common dental imperfections, including:
TruSmile offers a variety of choices in customizing your new TruSmile veneers. It does not require a visit to the dentist, which we’ve found to be a huge selling point for many customers. You can select from various shades and consult with TruSmile over Skype, Facebook Messenger, or Facetime to discuss your needs.2
We read 100s of reviews about TruSmile, here are some of the positives:
In reading through reviews of TruSmile Veneers, some common cons include:
TruSmile clip-on veneers are a viable solution for less-than-perfect teeth. TruSmile recommends you have at least five good natural teeth for proper veneer fit.3
These removable veneers require natural teeth and some tooth structure to properly attach for optimal use.
The price of your custom TruSmile veneers includes an impression kit you’ll use to mold your new veneers. You can order the veneers and impression kit online.
Making your TruSmile veneer impressions is easy:
In conducting research, we found that the TruSmile website includes several helpful videos you can watch that instruct you on this process. TruSmile also requires a set of four photos that you’ll need to email to firstname.lastname@example.org:
You’ll also need to fill out the included card with your preferences. These include which shade you want your new TruSmile Veneers to be:
TruSmile notes that the A2 Not Very Bright shade is “more suitable for older age customers.”2 The impression kit also includes a return shipping label so you can easily ship your impressions back without any additional fees. We’ve found this to be a common theme among companies that sell snap on veneers.
Once you’ve completed your veneer impressions and sent them back, TruSmile takes about 3 to 5 weeks to ship your custom veneers and a complimentary travel case.
You can pay a premium fee to have them manufactured within 2 weeks and a $35 overnight fee to expedite shipping once ready.2
Insurance does not typically cover TruSmile veneers. We’ve found that this is because they are considered cosmetic dental treatments and don’t address a specific medical condition. In our experience, it’s best to speak to your insurance representative to discuss potential coverage options for your individual plan.
TruSmile offers several payment options. You can pay for your new TruSmile veneers in full for $499, which covers your impression kit and shipping charges.
Payment plans include:
Paying for your TruSmile veneers in full will save you the most money. Splitting up your payments into two charges will cost $518, while four payments cost $536.

Snap-on veneers like TruSmile Veneers are a more affordable, comfortable, and convenient alternative to costly and painful permanent veneers. In our experience, companies like TruSmile can offer great customer service that makes dental care even more rewarding.
Getting permanent veneers requires one or more dentist visits and a substantial investment. Permanent veneers are irreversible, as they require removing part of your teeth enamel to account for the presence of the veneer.6
Many people can’t opt for permanent veneers because they can cost thousands of dollars.
However, permanent veneers offer several benefits. These veneers are custom-made to fit your teeth and last 5 to 15 years. Permanent veneers are made from thin porcelain or composite that improves teeth appearance.
As with any veneer, permanent or temporary, you must avoid certain foods. This is to reduce the potential for staining and discoloration.
Permanent veneers do not prevent further damage. But they provide a long-term solution to a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
TruSmile veneers offer similar results to permanent veneers at a lower price with less hassle. Rather than visiting the dentist, you can easily create custom impressions at home. You can also order a full upper and lower set for a fraction of the cost.
TruSmile veneers are unlikely to last upwards of 5 years. However, you can remove and replace them as often as you’d like without sacrificing your enamel.
TruSmile veneers also come with food restrictions. You can overcome these by simply removing your veneers until after you’ve finished eating or drinking.
TruSmile veneers can be worth it for people looking for a convenient, affordable solution to mask imperfect teeth without committing to permanent veneers.
These veneers, however, still require an investment. But the entire process is less imposing than permanent veneers, albeit with similar results. In our research, we’ve found that most customers prefer an at-home experience that’s less invasive and brings an element of fun to the table.
TruSmile offers a 30-day warranty for fractures from when you receive the veneers. The company also covers one remake of your snap-on veneers at no additional cost if they don’t fit your teeth. Our research shows that making quality impressions can help you avoid fitment issues, but having this option can be a welcome safety net for many customers.
However, TruSmile does not offer any returns or refunds. This is due to the costly process required for these custom-made veneers.7
TruSmile veneers has a 4.81-star rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB).8 Trustpilot reveals similar ratings at 4.7 stars.9
However, in reading through hundreds of TruSmile Veneers reviews, many customers’ remarks vary greatly in terms of overall experience and validity. Each TruSmile Veneers review varies from “customer service is amazing” to “I’ve asked for a refund and haven’t received it yet.”
Multiple reviews we encountered mentioned rumors that TruSmile paid for 5-star fake reviews in the past. Our findings and the contrast between the number of 5-star and 1-star reviews supports this. Reviews were either extremely high or low. But the lack of in-between reviews has concerned some customers.
Whether or not the rumors are true, TruSmile’s customer service tends to leave people wanting more. This is especially true given how much they’ve spent on a snap-on veneer that’s supposed to improve their self-confidence.
In reviewing hundreds of reviews, here are other concerns people expressed about TruSmile Veneers:
One customer compared her snap-on veneers to something from a costume shop. Another said a color chart would have been helpful to include. We at Newmouth agree, especially given these veneers are meant to look natural and the wrong color can drastically alter their appearance.
Because TruSmile doesn’t offer many customizable features on its snap-on veneers, this is one area where people tend to struggle with choosing the right shade.
For every negative review, there tends to be a positive review. Happy customers are relieved they can go out in public without worrying about how their smile looks. In our research many reviews also praise TruSmile’s customer service.
And though some people experienced an adjustment period (normal for wearing veneers), the overall fit was comfortable and pleasing to most.
The discrepancy between polarized reviews could stem from a lack of customer service, which TruSmile recently addressed.
TruSmile Veneers are an affordable, temporary solution to many common dental imperfections, including chipped, broken, or missing teeth. These custom snap-on veneers are made to your specifications with 3D technology and German co-polyester material.
You can choose from several payment plans and select which shade best fits your teeth. TruSmile offers free video consultations to help you pick out the best snap-on veneer for you.
TruSmile Veneers cost $499 if you pay in a single payment. You can also choose between two payment plans to pay $518 or $536 for your TruSmile Veneers.
It’s not recommended that you eat with TruSmile Veneers. While you can drink with your TruSmile Veneers in place, you’ll want to avoid hot and cold drinks.
TruSmile Veneers can last anywhere from 1 to 5 years, depending on how often you use and clean them. Proper care of your affordable veneers can extend their lifespan.
Yes, you can wear TruSmile Veneers if you have missing teeth. However, TruSmile recommends you have at least five teeth to properly and comfortably wear your snap-on veneers.
No, TruSmile does not offer a return or refund policy. This is due to the costly process required for these custom-made veneers.
