Do you want to enhance your smile and gain confidence? Dental veneers offer a great solution! Repair problems with your teeth, like chips, stains, gaps, or misshapen teeth.
Veneers are an investment in your smile. Typically, each veneer costs around $2,000, but the cost varies based on each patient’s unique treatment plan. At Atlanta Smiles, we provide a custom quote and treatment plan for each patient.
What Factors Influence the Cost for Veneers?
Like with most dental procedures, the cost ties to the specific condition of your teeth and oral health. For example, teeth must be healthy to add a veneer. If you have a cavity in a tooth where you wish to add a veneer, you must first repair the decay.
Other factors include:
- The number of veneers applied
- Type of veneer used
- The amount of contouring needed
- The number of appointments required
Before we schedule the procedure, we schedule a consultation to review your teeth and discuss the specifics of your treatment. We always ensure our patients understand the cost involved so they can make an informed and confident decision.
How Does the Type of Veneer Impact Cost?
The quality of the material used and the skill needed to apply the veneer factor into the cost. For example, porcelain veneers cost more per veneer than composite resin veneers. Yet, we typically recommend porcelain veneers because they offer more durability and last longer.
Composite Resin Veneers
With composite resin veneers, the dentist applies the composite material directly to the teeth. Because the veneers don’t require fabrication, the procedure usually happens in one visit.
The overall cost for composite resin veneers is much lower than porcelain veneers. Yet, composite resin veneers only last five to seven years. Also, they don’t offer the durability of porcelain veneers.
While higher in cost, porcelain veneers offer a more natural appearance. Plus, they have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years or double the lifespan of composite resin veneers.
The most significant advantage is the durability of porcelain veneers. They hold up better to the daily use of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are crafted specifically for your teeth and bonded to the surface of the teeth. The expert craftsmanship of the veneer and the skill needed for accurate and lasting results impact the cost. But, patients experience outstanding results.
Are Veneers Worth It?
We think so! However, we understand each patient must make the right decision for their needs, budget, and smile. With over 30 years of cosmetic dentistry experience, we’ve seen countless patients love the results of porcelain veneers.
Your smile influences confidence and how the world sees you. Veneers give you a quick but lasting solution to correct your smile. We are always happy to discuss the pros and cons of veneers related to your specific smile and health.
Does Insurance cover veneers?
Most dental insurance plans do not cover the cost of veneers because they are considered a cosmetic procedure. However, if you need dental work before applying the veneers, like a filling, dental insurance should cover part or all that procedure.
Dental insurance policies offer varied coverage. Check with your insurance provider to determine if the policy covers veneers.
Financing Your Dental Procedure
Quality dental care matters for your health and appearance. If you need extra help budgeting for dental care, consider Care Credit or Capital One Healthcare Finance. Both offer trusted financing options.
Invest in Your Smile
If you are considering dental veneers, think of it as an investment in your smile. Porcelain veneers last for many years. So while the cost for veneers can feel significant, the results are priceless.
