How much do veneers cost.
Dental veneers is quite a common treatment to reshape teeth; it is usually done as a cosmetic treatment to improve the shape and the colour of the teeth, but it can also be helpful to correct oral issues such as uneven teeth allignement or spacing or to repair worn enamel, chips or cracks.
The treatment is not very cheap, the price varies depending on different factors.
First of all, it seems that the cost depends on the Country, or even on the location, so that the procedure is more expensive in a big city than in a small rural city or a town.
Then it is very important to consider the material the veneers are made of and the number of teeth that requires the work. It is possible to cover one or more teeth or all of them.
Porcelain veneers cost.
Usually porcelain veneers are the best choice, but also the more expensive: the cost is beteween $ 925 to $ 2.500 $ for tooth or between 30-70 K for the full mouth; porcelain is more durable, could last 12-25 years and requires a few maintenance.
Otherwise there are composite resin veneers, that could cost between $ 250 to $ 1500 for tooth but last 4-8 years and need more maintenance; no dental restoration can be expected to last for ever.
The price also varies depending on other particular conditions, because elements like occlusions, periodontal issues or diseases, missing teeth, placement of bone grafts or gum contouring could change the cost.
Doctors say also that it is important to find not only a dentist with a more than good reputation but also someone who know about head and neck pain treatment.
Dental veneers are not usually covered by dental insurance, this kind of treatment having an aestethic purpouse, but there are occasions on which the dentist can demonstrate that the need is based on the correction of a dental health issues.
Otherwise patients have to ask the dentist for different financing options.
We have to remember that there are many case in which dental veneers treatment can be considered an investment for the future because benefits and satisfaction could outweigh the cost: teeth whitening and restored with lifelike results could improve self confidence and life quality, as many patients state.
