📊 Factors that influence the Price of Dental Veneers
As you have seen, the prices of dental veneers can fluctuate a lot. Remember that the above prices are only indicative and refer to the price per unit of each individual veneer.
Obviously, the final price of the treatment is another matter. But what determines that treatment with veneers costs more or less money? Basically the following points:
State of your teeth
Although it is a mainly aesthetic treatment, we cannot forget that this is a dental procedure. Your teeth must be in good condition and in favorable conditions to be able to carry out this treatment.
Therefore, if before you can get dental veneers your teeth need some added treatment, the final price will inevitably increase. These treatments can be dental cleanings, orthodontics, fillings, etc.
Type of dental veneers chosen
The prices are determined mainly depending on the material in which they are built (composite or porcelain). It also influences the difficulty of placement in the tooth and the participation or not of a laboratory for the manufacture of the veneers.
In this sense, porcelain is more expensive than composite. And if a laboratory intervenes, the cost of the treatment will increase, since they also have to charge for their work.
Number of teeth to be treated
Aesthetic veneers have individual prices, so obviously, the more teeth you want to cover with veneers, the more expensive the treatment will be.
For example, placing one or two veneers to correct defects in specific teeth is not the same as creating a totally new smile covering most of the teeth.
This point also varies from clinic to clinic. And it is that it is usual to make a discount or special prices when several teeth are going to be treated, and each clinic does it in a different way.
The clinic is the decisive factor that can raise or lower the price of veneer treatment. You can find quite large differences in the price of aesthetic veneers between one clinic and another.
Among the reasons for this variety are the experience of the dentist and his team, the fame of the clinic, its specialty, the city where the clinic is located, even the neighborhood in which it is located, etc.
In the end, we cannot forget that clinics need to cover their costs so that it is profitable for them to be open. That is why each clinic offers prices, like any other company.
Tips to SAVE on your Dental Veneers
If you want to get dental veneers but you see a problem with the price, here we are going to give you 5 tips to save on your treatment and reduce its cost to the maximum:
Put them only on the upper teeth
As a general rule, the teeth that you are going to show the most when smiling and speaking will be those of the upper arch. This will depend on each patient and obviously, your dentist will advise you in this regard when assessing your case.
To find out if this could be the case for you, stand in front of a mirror and smile and speak naturally. If you see that because of the way you smile you barely show your lower teeth (less than half) you can consider the option of not putting veneers on them.
If you show more than half of your lower teeth when you talk or smile, you may still not need veneers.
In the end, the most important thing is to achieve a natural result in all of your teeth. So, as long as you don’t choose too white a color for your veneers that makes too much of a difference to the shade of your lower teeth, you can save yourself this point.
“Forget” about the teeth
In line with the previous advice, the teeth are usually hidden from view, and therefore it is not necessary to put dental veneers on them. Observe the following image:
Veneers are usually placed on the incisors, canines, and premolars. If you want to reduce the price of your treatment, you can choose to place veneers only on the first premolars (the outermost ones).
All this will always depend on your teeth, your smile, and how exposed the premolars are. But by saving two dental veneers on your treatment, you will surely notice a big difference in the final price.
Combine Composite and Porcelain materials
As you have already seen above, porcelain veneers cost more than composite veneers. Logically the cheapest would be to put all the composite veneers, but if you want, you can combine the materials.
For example, You can place porcelain veneers on the incisors and canines, which are the most frontal and most visible teeth. And put composite veneers on the premolar teeth. In this way, you would also further reduce the final budget.
Maintain good health and dental hygiene
This point is key. Veneers only serve to fix a tooth, but that tooth has to be in good health. For example, if you have cavities or tartar buildup on your gums, the veneer will just cover it up, but it won’t fix the problem.
In the event of such a problem, the teeth would have to be treated before the veneers could be placed, and these treatments would increase the cost.
Consult several Clinics
This is the final advice. If you have the opportunity to consult several clinics you will be able to compare. As a general rule, clinics in larger cities and located in more central areas tend to be somewhat more expensive because they have higher expenses.
But we can not generalize because there is everything and you never know what you can find in your area. Therefore, the best advice is to select two or three clinics and consult the prices for your treatment directly with your professionals.
