Whether you’re looking to fix discoloration, chipping, or crooked front teeth, dental veneers are one of the best cosmetic treatments to improve their appearance. The suitability of this treatment depends will be determined by an examination of your teeth, and the extent of the damage.
Veneers are generally used to treat mild to moderate cases, which makes the treatment a purely cosmetic one. As a result, dental veneers are usually not covered in your insurance plan. A beautiful smile is important as it gives you confidence in your day to day activities and interactions. But you should also take your budget into account before proceeding with the treatment.
Here are some factors that affect the cost of treatment with dental veneers:
Choice of Dental Material
Porcelain is a popular material for dental veneers, though it’s more expensive than composite resin materials. Another popular material for dental veneers are Lumineers, which is even more expensive than the standard materials.
The Number of Teeth That Will Be Repaired Using Veneers
Veneers should only be used to improve the appearance of teeth with visible damage, rather than all visible teeth to reduce the cost of treatment. You should pay less per tooth if you’re getting two or more teeth repaired using veneers. You’re likely to get bigger discounts for more teeth, so make sure to shop around and choose the most cost-effective option for you.
Experience of Your Dentist
Make sure that your dentist gives you a few photos of previous clients who have repaired their teeth using the materials of your choice. An experienced dentist may ask for more money, but this is preferable to choosing an inexperienced dentist who places the veneer poorly, resulting in multiple trips for repairs that will cost you more time and money in the long run, even if the repairs are free.
Please discuss with your dentist in San Francisco about the suitability of veneers for your case, and other good treatments that fit your budget.
