Dental veneers, which are typically constructed from porcelain, help to conceal minor imperfections of the teeth. These may include gaps, chips, cracks, tooth decay, or permanent stains from plaque or other sources. Dr. Vanama of Discovery Dental in Issaquah adheres a thin piece of ceramic to the front of the tooth for cosmetic purposes. Some patients also inquire about veneers after sustaining injury to their mouth during an accident. No matter what your reason for wanting to undergo the procedure, you likely want to know “How much do veneers costs?”

Costs Associated with Receiving a Veneer

It’s difficult to state one price for the procedure because there are so many variables to consider. The most common ones include how many veneers you desire, the condition of your teeth, and whether the veneers are made of porcelain or another material. There is the cost per tooth to consider as well as other services Dr. Vanama completes during the procedure. For most people, the cost per tooth ranges from $750 to $1,500.

Additional costs that you may incur include teeth whitening after receiving the veneer, dental x-rays, and temporary veneers if you choose to receive them. The cost of the entire procedure ranges from $1,500 on the low end to $20,000 on the high end.

Insurance Considerations

Most dental insurance companies consider veneers a cosmetic enhancement and therefore don’t provide coverage for them. However, exceptions sometimes exist if you are requesting the veneers to preserve the health of your teeth after experiencing facial trauma. Since every company has its own policies, we encourage you to check with your insurance provider in advance of scheduling an appointment to receive veneers. Discovery Dental can also provide you with resources for financing the procedure if you’re interested.
