What Are Some Factors To Consider?
No doubt you’ll have questions about porcelain veneers. The color of your smile, the health of your teeth, and the flaws that need to be fixed, will all play a part in the overall cost of porcelain veneers. A big portion of the cost is the quality of veneers used. In the past, all veneers were made of porcelain. These days, though we still call them porcelain veneers, they’re usually made of a more advanced material. The material used will affect the appearance of the veneers, including their ability to look natural and mask flaws in your natural teeth. The material used will also affect the durability of the veneer. Some materials are weak, and susceptible to chipping. Others are many times stronger than natural tooth enamel, and can last a very long time. Of course, the material used in your veneer will make a difference in the cost–getting veneers that are both attractive and durable can be very expensive.
Remember, porcelain veneers are considered by dental insurance companies to be a strictly cosmetic procedure, so dental insurance rarely covers any portion of the cost of porcelain veneers. Dentists are free to set their fees at any level that they feel is fair for the quality of their services, though most cosmetic dentists will usually try to provide competitive prices for porcelain veneers. During your consultation, we can talk about options for controlling the cost of your veneers while achieving the results you desire. We might recommend less expensive alternatives like dental bonding. Sometimes, phased treatment can be used to keep veneers in your budget: we place only a few veneers at a time, always keeping within the cost you can afford. We also offer financing to help make your veneers more affordable.
