Think of veneers like costumes for your teeth. They can radically change the appearance of your teeth and smile. They just don’t change what’s behind them.
Veneers are a popular option because they cost less than other cosmetic dentistry options like implants. Not that they’re cheap. Just depends on things like:
- The type of material the veneers are made of
- Where in the country you’re located
- The experience level of the cosmetic dentist you choose
Porcelain Veneers Cost
Cost: $800 – $3000 per tooth
Yep, that’s quite a big price range. But, again, the factors listed above can significantly impact the cost of veneers. Porcelain veneers are kind of like the Cadillacs of veneers because of their strength, realistic appearance and durability (they often can last 10 – 15 years). That’s why they can be so expensive.
Composite Veneers Cost
Cost: $250 – $1500 per tooth
If you want a cheaper option, go with composite veneers. If porelain is the Cadillac of veneers, let’s call composites the Ford of veneers. They’ll get the job done at a lower cost. Composite veneers will typically last between 5-7 years. Hopefully your Ford lasts longer.
