The Cost of Porcelain Veneers
By Dr. Tim Simpson on May 24, 2013
Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures offered at Abilene Aesthetic and Cosmetic Dentistry. With the application of porcelain veneers, Dr. Tim Simpson is able to perfect patients’ smile. Teeth appear whiter, straighter, and more uniform. While many patients are eager to experience the cosmetic benefits of porcelain veneers, it is understandable that they must first consider the cost. Because the fabrication and application of porcelain veneers is customized to the individual patient, Snyder patients will be informed of the specific porcelain veneers costs for their unique treatment plan at an initial consultation with Dr. Simpson. However, patients can read on to learn about the general costs that can be expected for a porcelain veneers procedure.
Because there are so many factors that can affect the cost of porcelain veneers, it is not possible to determine the exact cost of porcelain veneers treatment without a consultation with Dr. Simpson. For patients in Snyder, TX, porcelain veneers costs can be affected by any of the following:
- The number of teeth being treated: Porcelain veneers can be applied to any number of teeth. Depending on the extent of cosmetic flaws and where they are present, porcelain veneers can be applied to as few as one tooth or up to an entire set of visible teeth.
- The material used to create the veneers: While Dr. Simpson recommends porcelain veneers to patients for their natural look and superior strength and durability, there are other materials that may be used to fabricate the veneers. The material used for the veneers is one factor that plays a role in the cost of treatment.
- The steps required to complete porcelain veneers treatment: For traditional porcelain veneers, the teeth will need to be filed down slightly in order to make room for the veneers. Some patients may be candidates for CERINATE® LUMINEERS™, an extremely thin type of veneers that can usually be applied directly to teeth (even those with existing dental work) without extensive preparation.
Because there are so many variables that can affect the cost of porcelain veneers, there is a wide price range to consider. Porcelain veneers may cost anywhere from $900 to $2500 per tooth. Fortunately, porcelain veneers are extremely durable and can be expected to last between 10 and 15 years before needing to be replaced.
At Abilene Aesthetic and Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Simpson wants all patients to be able to receive the dental care they require; as such, various financing and payment options are available. Medical credit cards such as those offered by CareCredit help patients receive the care they need at a monthly cost they can afford. Dr. Simpson’s staff is happy to discuss these options in more detail.
