Cost of Porcelain Veneers

Friday, December 27, 2013 by Malisano Dental

porcelain veneers cost
Porcelain veneers are thin tooth coloured coverings that are bonded to the visible part of the tooth to whiten discoloured teeth, to straighten crooked teeth, to fix chipped worn teeth and for closing gaps.

There are many types of porcelain veneers to choose from and they differ in quality and how they are made. Cheaper porcelain veneers take less time to make, are made from cheap weaker porcelain, do not have the quality control through construction and do not have much consideration in custom smile design. They are often a branded product where one product suits all. This doesn't mean that they do not serve a purpose.

There are many choices to porcelain veneers and people’s decisions are made for varying reasons. For some the best option is the lowest price while for others, it’s what will last the longest or what looks the best. The choice is up to you as it is all elective.

Primarily the difference lies in how they’re made, the skill and experience of the dentist and her team. The longest lasting and best looking porcelain veneers are premium and expensive. They definitely take more time and skill.

Steps for making PREMIUM porcelain veneers:

  1. Porcelain veneer assessment and diagnosis by dentist.
  2. Record taking for porcelain veneer discussion and planning from dentist with master ceramist.
  3. Diagnostic wax ups (mock ups) and construction of guides to assist dentist on preparation.
  4. Preparation and record taking for construction of porcelain veneers.
  5. Preparation of accurate intermediate coverings of prepared teeth.
  6. Dentist consultation with Master Ceramist.
  7. Patient consultation with Master Ceramist.
  8. Dentist review appointment with patient prior to placing premium porcelain veneers.
  9. Seating and placement of premium porcelain veneers with Master ceramist being available at this appointment.
  10. Review of veneers and cosmetic contouring

It simply comes down to "you get what you pay for"

If aesthetics and the risk to decay and gum infection from poor fitting veneers is not a major concern, then cheap veneers may suit you.

The most affordable and value for money is to do them right the first time.
