Dental veneers cost and information can be somewhat confusing depending on where you live. We are going to give you the basics information on veneers and the costs.
What Are Veneers
Veneers help protect the tooth or teeth that have been damaged by decay or injured so that you can keep your real tooth. The simple fit over your tooth or bonded over your natural tooth to prevent further decay and injury to that tooth or teeth.
What Are Veneers Made Of
Veneers are made either of a composite resin that is colored like your tooth or porcelain. Which one of these materials you choose will help decide the price of your veneers. Porcelain looks more like a natural tooth and people who do not know which tooth has the veneer on will not be able to pick it out. Porcelain cost more than the resin but it also resists stains better than the resin material.
How Are Veneers Made
How veneers are made add to the cost as well. If they are made in a lab, then you will have lab costs. If however, they are done in the dentist office then you are paying for the labor-intensive prep work and veneer bonding work that has to be done.
The Number Of Teeth That Need Veneers
Another cost is the number of veneers you will need. On top of the number to veneers, there is the cost of the dentist or lab, and any future visits regarding your veneers all figure into the cost along with the material the veneers are made of. You can shop around but do not take the lowest price as the lowest price isn’t always a good choice of materials or workmanship. They can also stain quicker and darker.
