Dental veneers are custom made “prosthetic teeth” that are made of thin shells of either porcelain or composite resin. They are used to fix a tooth that’s been chipped, discolored, worn down and misaligned. They are an easier and quicker option than a dental crown. Although a dental crown encases a tooth, a veneer is merely bonded to the front side of the tooth. The cost of veneer teeth varies on the material used and the kind of aesthetic technique to make it.
Here is a quick overview of the types and cost of veneer teeth Thornhill:
This is the most common type of veneer as it is easy to install and can be done with one visit to your dentist in Thornhill Ontario. The longevity lasts from 5-7 years, and may not necessarily last as long as porcelain veneers. Although they may not be as resistant to staining and discoloration, they come at a much lower cost of $100 – $300 per tooth.
Unlike composite veneers, porcelain veneers take multiple dentist visits to be completed because your dentist takes impressions of your teeth and has it custom made for you. These veneers last longer and have the closest resemblance to the partially translucent color of natural teeth. Each porcelain veneer costs about $800-$3,000 per tooth. It is multiple times more expensive than other veneers but this could last you about 20 years maximum.
Also known as instant veneers, is another inexpensive option due to the lack of intricate laboratory work. This can also be done in a single visit, as it is already ready-made, and all your dentist has to do is pick the color closest to your teeth and do some polishing. This kind starts at $370-$620 per tooth.
They’re quite similar to false teeth, minus the dental crowns. AKA “snap-on” veneers because you can literally just fasten or clip them onto your teeth. It’s a very convenient way to use veneers, but may not necessarily last long and may not be chip/stain resistant. Each veneer cost $60 per tooth.
