If you have officially entered the world of cosmetic dentistry, then you will notice that there is a wide price range associated with almost all procedures. Porcelain veneers are among the more popular procedure treatments that patients opt for to have a total smile transformation that is easy and painless. Porcelain veneers can last the patient upwards of 15 years if they are done well and cared for properly. However, the initial investment for porcelain veneers can either be a small price or an extremely high one depending on many different variables. If you’re looking for the right tools to help save you money and yet still have a quality outcome, check out our tips below for finding out the cost of porcelain veneers.
Veneers can be made from many different types of materials. If the patient decides to go for porcelain veneers, they are often double the cost of what composite resin veneers may cost. Veneers can cost anywhere from $250-$3500 per tooth. This may seem like an extremely wide range cost per tooth, however, this also depends on whether the veneer is made out of composite resin or porcelain. This cost can also depend on who your dentist is, the location, the level of experience, and whether there was a discount applied.
The location of where the veneers are applied also counts as a variable to the overall cost. The front 6 teeth on the top or bottom of a patients mouth will cost six times more than a single tooth. However, the material of the veneer you choose will affect the price much more than any other factor listed above.
The veneers that cost much less than any other material will be composite resin. Composite veneers can cost anywhere from $250 to $1500 per tooth. Although this also seems like a wide range we are also factoring the dental practice into the price, however, you can be rest assured the composite veneers will always be about half the price of porcelain veneers. The reason why composite resin material veneers are so cheap is that they can be created on the spot in the dental office. The resin can be sculpted on each tooth by the dentist during one appointment. The teeth themselves don’t actually have to be trimmed to receive the material. This may sound like an overall greater advantage and reason to opt for this material, however, composite veneers last three times shorter than how long a porcelain material can lots. Resin veneers can last from 5-7 years.
This is the much more famous option when choosing the right material for your veneers. Porcelain veneers can cost from $500-$3500 per tooth well this may seem like much more then composite resin, however, porcelain veneers can last a patient upwards of 15 years depending on how well they’re taken
care of. This material also mimics the look of natural teeth because of its shiny bright texture and also the strength that can withstand the strength of a bite. It’s an overall better choice when picking materials!
Choosing from these options can be tough, however, remember your initial investment will give you better quality in the future!
