Dental Veneers are used to restore the beauty of a tooth if the tooth is:
Since dental insurance companies consider Dental Veneers a cosmetic procedure, they do not usually pay for veneers.
Some dental insurance companies will pay for 30%-50% of the cost if it can be demonstrated that the need for Dental Veneers is based on the need to restore the structure of the tooth or of there is a dental health issue that places the tooth at risk for deterioration or decay.
How Much Do Dental Veneers Cost?
The cost of Dental Veneers vary, due to factors like:
- geography (they’re more expensive in large cities than in rural areas)
- the type of material used (porcelain is more expensive than a resin composite Dental Veneer)
- the skill and expertise of the dentist placing the Dental Veneer
How Cost Effective are Dental Veneers?
The success of Dental Veneers is very high. Dental Veneers last an average of ten to twenty years, or more. Porcelain Veneers don’t stain, so it’s advisable to get your teeth cleaned and whitened before having Dental Veneers made, so that your teeth are as bright as possible.
Dental Veneers are cared for with the same good daily oral hygiene that you perform to care for your natural teeth. Although Dental Veneers are strong, it’s advisable to resist the urge to crack open pistachio nuts with your teeth, crunch on hard candy or chew on ice. If a Dental Veneer does crack or become loose, it can be replaced.
The procedure to place Dental Veneers is simple and usually requires only two or three office visits to complete the entire procedure.
How to Get the Best Dental Veneers
Dental Veneers are about 0.5 mm thin, about as thin as a rose petal. A small amount of the surface of the tooth, on which the Dental Veneer is placed, will be removed to create a rough surface onto which the Dental Veneer will be bonded. Because of this process, having Dental Veneers placed is not a reversible procedure.
