Understanding the Cost of Porcelain Veneers
During a consultation at his Red Bank, NJ, practice, Dr. Michael J. Bixby will thoroughly explain the cost of veneers and their benefits compared to other aesthetic procedures. The cost of porcelain veneers can range anywhere from $1,200 to $2,500 per unit. The price is dependent on several factors including materials used and the number of veneers required. Although the cost of veneers is higher than that of other procedures, the results are lifelike, long-lasting with proper care, and can give you an increased confidence in yourself and in your smile.
Important Factors to Consider
Because no two smiles are alike, veneers cost is completely personalized. However, general factors to consider include:
Dental materials range in quality and related costs. Our office uses IPS Empress® veneers made of carefully pressed ceramic. We combine our personalized procedure with lifelike materials to create translucency and color similar to that of your natural smile.
Number of Veneers
In addition to the materials used, the cost of veneers is also dependent on the number of veneers you decide to include in your procedure. A single veneer is more difficult to accurately match to surrounding teeth, so the cost of a single veneer can be much higher than the price per tooth if you treat multiple teeth.
Veneers can achieve stunning effects on their own, but total treatment cost will be higher if the treatment is part of a smile makeover or is combined with another procedure like gum contouring.
Porcelain Veneers vs. Alternatives
Porcelain veneers are more expensive than other aesthetic procedures because they can address multiple cosmetic issues during a single treatment.
Our team will work with your insurance provider to maximize your dental benefits or find a payment plan that works for you.
If you have stains, chips, cracks, or misshapen teeth, veneers can help you whiten and align your smile. Porcelain veneers can also provide light orthodontic treatment without undergoing the costly, lengthy option of braces. Although patients seeking a more cost-friendly option may opt for dental bonding, the high-quality porcelain used in veneers reflects light similarly to your natural smile and provides a stronger, more natural-looking smile.
Flexible Financing Available
Veneers are considered an elective aesthetic procedure, which means they are not typically covered by insurance. Dr. Bixby and his team will be happy to assist you with your dental claim paperwork. We also offer several payment options to help you meet your expectations without compromising on your goals for your procedure. In addition to accepting all major credit cards and personal checks, our office can assist you with securing a financing plan through CareCredit®. Our financing partner offers flexible plans that can help you get started on your procedure as soon as possible.
Investing in Your Confidence
If you hide your smile due to misshapen, discolored, or damaged teeth, veneers can increase your confidence. Although the cost of veneers is higher than that of other aesthetic procedures such as bonding, veneers provide comprehensive treatment by addressing multiple issues at once and can provide several other benefits that rationalize the cost.
