Costs of Porcelain Veneers
The cost of you getting porcelain veneers can be very similar to deciding what you will pay to have your home painted, or your car serviced. Many factors go into the final price when it comes to a service provided. A good benchmark, a good average, should be around $1,500 per veneer per tooth. A range then to operate within should be around $925 to $2,500 per veneer. Let’s address the elements that go into the creation of porcelain veneers for you.
Each of us is Unique
The baseline contributor starts with yourself. The condition of your teeth and the objective in covering those teeth with veneers. The next contributing factor, still dealing with you, the patient, is the number of veneers necessary to achieve the ultimate finished product of a fantastic SMILE. How many do you count versus how many the cosmetic dentist may recommend.
The Cosmetic Dentist
Now we will shift the assessment process to your provider. Let us first strongly suggest you spend some time in qualifying your cosmetic dentist. What he/she is about to do for you may change your life dramatically. Review their qualifications and see photographic examples of other work that has been completed. We would also suggest you see both the successful and those veneers that did not achieve a great result. The fees this dentist will charge then is a contributor. Where your dentist is located can make a big difference. Fees differ from geographic regions to urban markets.
The Lab and Ceramist
Once your dentist has done the initial prep work and created proper impressions those are sent to a lab of choice and the effort begins there. The contributing factors here are the skill of the ceramist and the fees associated with their work. They play a huge role from an artistic and creative view. The product or material this ceramist works with is also a huge factor. What quality of porcelain does he/she use? Some labs have now introduced the technology of a CAD/CAM system. This may be factored into your final product.
If it has been decided that the veneers are essential in your oral health care it may be possible for the insurance company to cover some of your veneer costs. Most likely this procedure is considered elective and you will bear the cost yourself.
Think of this?
We seldom take an expense we encounter in live and break it down or extrapolate it over a longer period. Let’s try that now to rationalize this life changing opportunity. If you need eight veneers at $1,500 each that is a total out of pocket expense of $12,000. The life expectancy is easily over 10 years. Let’s use 12 in this case. $1,000 a year for a much better smile. That seems pretty palatable. And many cosmetic dentists will be able to provide financing for your porcelain veneers. Haven’t you spent money in far worse manners…!
