We know you probably even skipped one chapter or two before coming here! We don’t advise that but we understand.

The veneer cost depends on many factors. From the country you undergo the procedure, to the materials, to the place you get them (hospital, private clinic, etc). Usually, the price refers to a single dental veneer, so a veneer for one single tooth.

How much do partial veneers cost?

Partial Veneers are one of the types of veneers a few people know about. They only cover part of the natural tooth and this is why they’re cheaper than the full veneer on the entire tooth. They can cost from 80$ to 1500$. Not everyone offers this treatment and most people just prefer getting the full veneer applied.

Why are veneers so expensive?

You may be wondering why veneers are not the cheapest of treatments and why they may be expensive. There’s not just one answer to that. There are many. Also, you should avoid picking the cheapest clinic and the permanent problems you might face after this choice. So let us go into detail for you:

  • Veneer materials
  • The dental labs
  • Teeth preparations
  • A doctor’s experience

Veneer material plays a big role in how much your veneer is going to cost. Dentists and labs need to create something incredibly thin, wafer-thin, and extremely strong at the same time. The most aesthetic and long-lasting materials tend to also be the most expensive. Cheaper materials will crack easily so you would have to replace them often and end up paying twice, thrice!

The dental labs and the technology they use get a part of the action as well when you pay for dental veneers. Dental labs spend a lot of time and money to create your veneers which will be included in the cost of veneers. This doesn’t count if there’s an in-house lab but this is highly unlikely.

Teeth preparations take two appointments and a lot of work from your dentist. This takes time and it’s part of why the veneers may seem to be expensive.

Products used in making the veneers starting from disinfectants, to dental cement used, to every material or tool needed are expensive.

A doctor’s experience is an important part of the pricing as well. The more experienced and qualified your dentist the more you have to pay. This is mostly true in every single field, so if you want a quality, safe experience and a good doctor in cosmetic dentistry you may notice an increase in price.

3 factors affecting the prices of veneers the most

The main 3 factors affecting the price of veneers are: Countrymaterial and a in-house or third-party lab. Your geographical location will immensely affect the final price of your veneers, reason why so many people pick cheaper countries to get them. Moreover, the better the material, the higher the price tag of your veneers. Lastly, if your dentist has an in-house lab creating the veneers you may save up on the final price as third parties labs are usually more expensive.

Are veneers worth the cost?

How much is a beautiful perfect smile worth? That’s up to you to say but we can say for sure that if you want a dream smile it’s going to cost money.

If you want to know if a smile makeover is worth it you need to consider these factors:

Durability

Good veneers will be with you for a long enough time, so you won’t need to repay the same amount of money yearly. Usually, you won’t need to replace them for at least 10-15 years, sometimes even 20+. This makes it an investment in yourself and in your happiness and confidence.

Quality

Veneers are mostly expensive because of the quality of materials used to make them last for a long time. Of course, higher quality materials will cost you more but will also assure you of no need to go to the dentist every few months for replacements and go through another dental veneer treatment.

Investment

You should consider veneers a long-time investment in yourself, your oral health, and your teeth. You won’t need to go every 4-5 months for whitening your teeth, for fillings, for checkups on damaged teeth, or for cavities. You will need some cleaning once or twice a year, but that’s it! And, you know, you need those anyway.

So is a confident smile worth it? We say it definitely is, but in the end, it is up to you to decide.

Does insurance pay for veneers?

In most cases insurance does not cover cosmetic procedures such as veneers. The dental facet treatment is considered an elective or cosmetic treatment. So therefore it is not a medical necessity for you to get it. But for a better understanding of your dental insurance you may want to get in touch with your insurance.

Can you get veneers on NHS?

You may get veneers on the NHS partially if you can find a clinical or a restorative reason, to prevent for example further dental health issues. If you need veneers for a cosmetic issues, the NHS won’t cover – even partially – your veneers.

Does Medicaid cover dental veneer treatment? 

No, Medicaid does not pay for veneers treatments, even partially. Veneers are considered a cosmetic procedure and as such are not covered by Medicaid.

Does Medicare cover veneers?

No, Medicare will not pay for veneers, even partially. This is because veneers are still considered only a cosmetic treatment. Any cosmetic dental treatment doesn’t fall under Medicare coverage.

How much do veneers cost with insurance?

Let’s say you are lucky enough to convince your insurance to cover the cost of veneers. How much will veneers cost you with insurance? Usually, when this happens your insurance will only cover a small part of the total cost, rarely reaching 50% of this cost. But the chances of your insurance covering even part of the costs is very slim.

Frequently asked questions for veneers prices

Can you pay veneers monthly?

If you feel like you can’t pay for your veneers all in one session you may be wondering if you can pay for veneers monthly. There are two distinct answers to this question.

If you get veneers in your own country, you may ask your dentist if they offer an option to pay monthly. This is not unheard of, especially if the dentist is part of a big group, a chain of dental clinics, or if he’s friendly with you.

If you decide to travel abroad for veneers with veneers in Turkey with dental medical tourism, this may be more difficult. Foreign clinics can’t offer you a monthly veneers payment plan because of different countries, different banks, and the gigantic commission you’d have to pay to transfer monthly money to another country. You may however ask for a loan in your country.

Can you get veneers for free?
