Why would you want to do this? According to SM, disposable addresses are "a highly used feature." Yeah, for the 0.1% of users who are into porn :)
Actually, I totally agree with you. This feature should just be eliminated. I can't think of another email system that even offers it.
This thread has reasons for turning it off. Supposedly it's under consideration. Go here to place your vote: https://portal.smartertools.com/community/a88945/sm16-ui-less-emphasis-on-disposable-address.aspx

Disposable addresses are a core part of the product, so it can't be disabled. However, disposable addresses have many uses. I use them for things like signing up for trials of software and services, for downloading eBooks on coding and marketing, downloading industry white papers, etc. I use it at least a couple of times a month, and sometimes more. I find it easier than creating a content filter or using a plus address as a) it's quicker, and b) it has a strict time limit so I don't need to worry about going in and disabling it/deleting it/managing folders. That said, some will use them for other reasons and some won't use them at all. SmarterMail is a product with a set of features that can accommodate a ton of users and use cases. 
As for the thread mentioned, the re-organization of the button bar/folders list was the part that was "under consideration." As we've made that change, I marked that thread as completed.
