I have three missing teeth with one more that looks like it is going to have to come out. I cannot afford to get either implants or dentures. this seems like my last good option, but I don’t know if it works with missing teeth. What do you think?

It sounds like you could have periodontal disease that is causing you to lose teeth. If that is the case then snap-on smile will put additional pressure on your remaining teeth and accelerate the problem. My suggestion would be to get a dental flipper for your missing teeth. It is a relatively inexpensive procedure that will put a plastic tooth in place of each missing tooth. It will not be able to cover up any smile defects, but it will handle your missing teeth issue and allow you to focus on healing your gums.
