Dental veneers represent the best procedure through which all the imperfections of the teeth can be treated successfully.
It doesn’t matter if you have a chipped tooth, or misaligned teeth, dental veneers are the best solution.
However, one little downside of this cosmetic dentistry procedure is its cost.
Below you will find some general price ranges for dental veneers that are charged by cosmetic dentists all throughout the US:
For one single tooth veneer expect to pay anything between $650 and $2,100
For 6 upper tooth veneers – the costs range between $4,000 and $12,500
For 8 upper teeth porcelain veneers you could pay anything between $6,000 and $16,000
The cost for 10 upper teeth veneers ranges between $7,500 and $21,000
For 8 upper tooth veneers +8 lower teeth veneers the cost typically ranges between $12,000 and $33.500
Keep in mind that the above-mentioned prices are only statistical, and they vary greatly from one dentist to the other. Moreover, the cost of the dental veneers is generally influenced by many external factors such as:
- the extra charges and fees of the cosmetic dentist who performs the procedure
- whether it is a general dentist or a cosmetic dentist who places the veneers
- the location and reputation of the dental office or dental clinic
- the materials used for the fabrication of your veneers. The most expensive types of veneers are the ones made of porcelain, but there are also the composite resin veneers available, which are much cheaper. In order to apply composite resin veneers to the teeth, the dentist does not have to send impressions to the lab, but he can start applying the veneers on the spot.
- whether or not your cosmetic dentist offers you a warranty. Generally, your dentist should offer you anything between 5 and 10 years guarantee for the work performed. In case anything happens to your veneers in the meantime, he will replace/repair them for free.
There are many people who choose veneers even though their teeth are healthy.
Remember that in order to apply the veneers, the dentist will have to scratch the natural surface of your tooth in order for the veneers to bond efficiently.
Therefore, you should turn to this method only if you indeed need to go through these changes, if your teeth are indeed damaged and unaesthetic.
