Instasmile Review.

Smile like never before
Instasmile is an affordable solution to the smile of your dreams

Instant smile makeover
The power of being able to smile again for our customers is often overwhelming, and changing people’s lives & improving their confidence is why we are so passionate about what we do. Rediscover your youth, cover gaps, hide stained, chipped or crooked teeth or simply whiten your smile with instasmile.

If you need any help along your journey our customer experience team are on hand to help, and they know what it’s like to wear the product as they are all proud owners of their own instasmile.

Affordable custom-made solution
Alongside our customer-first approach & unsurpassed attention to detail, one of the biggest achievements as a team has been creating a more affordable alternative to traditional veneers. We also offer payment plans in order to make the product more financially accessible to the wider population, because we wholeheartedly believe that every single person should have the confidence to smile.

A revolution in smile design
instasmile clip-on veneers are a convenient and comfortable choice. Carefully crafted to match your dental profile, they are designed to easily clip on over your natural teeth, with no need for adhesives.

Using our unique patent pending technology, you have the option to have a smile makeover, hide stained, missing or damaged teeth and cover gaps without having to visit a dentist.

Trusted technology
Our technicians are skilled in creating slimline and natural-looking custom-made veneers to fit your teeth, so they’re easy to put on and comfortable, leaving you smiling all day.

Independent tests, conducted by a leading university on the materials used have shown they are both durable and have good color stability – even after extended exposure to black coffee, red wine or cola there were negligible changes to the naked eye.

My Thoughts:

Like many people out there, I have had dental insecurities for many years. Growing up, I have seen countless dentists and orthodontists about ways to improve my smile. Some would recommend braces for six months to even three years at one point. Others said my teeth were great and a couple small procedures or veneers would fix them, but they were very pricey and braces would be off the table if I ever did want them. As I got older and decided to go to college, I did not have the time or extra expenses to invest in the process of fixing my smile, yet I still dreamed of my perfect , whiter and more professional looking smile being a reality someday.

My Smile before Instasmile.

My biggest insecurities with my smile had to do with the spacing between my two front teeth. I also had a small fang tooth at the top, a generational tooth passed down to many of us that didn't match the other side. When I heard of Instasmile's clip in veneers via social media, I knew I needed to check out the company. With graduate school coming my way in the next couple of years, it seemed like the best time to look into improving my smile.

I was thrilled to be able to review Instasmile. I placed my order for the upper and lower sets in Classic A1 through the phone and the customer service team explained that first, an impressions kit would be sent to my home. Once received, I could make a webcam appointment, and they would walk me through it. The impression process was a lot easier than expected. Included in my kit was the putty to mix and the trays to take the impressions. The customer service representative walked me through each step from mixing the putty to holding the trays for as long as needed. Once the impressions were approved they were sent off in the box included for the free re-delivery to Instasmile. Once my impressions were received, an email was sent to me with the expected shipping date of my completed veneers.

My Smile after Instasmile.

Once my veneers arrived I was shocked at how beautiful the coloring was and how perfectly shaped they were to my teeth. They were packed safely with an included case with a mirror inside for easy storage after use. I put them in and they fit with no problems. It was amazing to see myself with a new smile for the first time. It was such a special moment! Immediately I began showing them off to family and friends and they too were thrilled with my results.

The only side affects I have had thus far is minor pain at the bottom of my teeth and a small lisp for the first couple of days I used Instasmile. The lisp is slight and lasts a couple of minutes until my mouth begins to adjust to having my teeth straight. The most common questions people have asked me so far is if I can eat and drink with them and the answer is yes! I have already done both and my teeth look perfect without any staining. It takes a little getting used to at first because like with talking, you are learning how to move your mouth and tongue around the veneers. Once you find your rhythm, you'll be good to go!

My smile hasn't been more beautiful since Instasmile! I truly can't recommend them enough. If you are someone interested in improving the color, appearance, or your overall confidence in your smile, check out the links in this review to the Instasmile website. Their dedication to customer service is wonderful, and the process is so much smoother, less time consuming, and more affordable than the traditional way of veneers or braces. I'm so grateful to the Instasmile team for assisting me through this process and I know you will be too!

An inheritance from a frenemy leaves her with the means to meddle and spy on the lives of mutual acquaintances.
In an attempt to run from her reality Anne becomes engrossed in a game of fun and flirtation with her friend and fellow sufferer Connie.
Their fun games turn into a deadly reality. It is no longer a game. Life, death and not even a defining word can stop the reality of manipulation.

Catalina was born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1959, the sixth of eight children, in a traditional Catholic family. Communication in such a large family fueled her desire and need to find a voice and write. She spent her childhood in Mexico. Her father became an employee of The World Bank in Washington D.C. In the early 1970s at the age of 12 she moved with her entire family to the United States. Catalina was already fluent in Southern English as she had spent one school year in the town of Pineville, Louisiana with her grandparents. There, she won the English award; ironically being the only one who had English as a second language in her class.

She attended Montgomery Community College, where she changed majors every semester. She also studied in Lyons, France at the Catholic University for two years. In 1981, due to an impulsive young marriage to a Viking (the Swedish, not the football player kind) Catalina moved to Sweden where she resided for five years and taught at a language school for Swedish, Danish, and Finnish business people. She returned to the USA in the late 1980s where she has been living ever since. She is fluent in Spanish, English, French and Swedish.

In Focus Chakra Healing Your Personal Guide

In Focus Chakra Healing is an essential guide providing in-depth summaries about all six chakras, followed by expert advice from Roberta Vernon on how to identify and restore blocked, weak, or closed chakras. Through the various healing practices covered, chakras can be corrected. Common ailments addressed include overeating, fatigue, stress, headaches, digestive disorders, and allergies. Includes an 18x24” wall chart!

My Thoughts

The In Focus Chakra Healing  is a great book to get you started with chakra work. If you aren't familiar with chakras, they are the seven energy points on the body. Each one is represented by a specific color and each one contributes to a different aspect of your personality and your health. For example, your root chakra is located at the base of your spine. It represents your survival instincts. If you are worried about your finances, your root chakra could be out of alignment, which could lead to health issues such as back trouble. 

In this book, the author takes you through each chakra, giving you suggestions for oils, gemstones, herbs, and more that you can use to balance your energy and clear blocks.  Each chapter is filled with healing suggestions, meditations, and other helpful tips that will help you unblock each chakra, which will raise your vibration and bring positive things into your life. 

I have been doing chakra work for years, and wouldn't classify myself as a beginner, but I still got a lot from this work. It taught me some new tricks and recipes I wasn't using yet. For someone who is new to chakra work, this is probably the most detailed and comprehensive book you'll find. It's interesting and gives you hands-on suggestions that makes it fun to read.  You'll find yourself excited about trying all their suggestions. I've read dozens of chakra books in my life, but this is one of my favorites.
