Dental veneers and lumineers are natural looking shells that are attached to teeth to improve their aesthetic appeal. They are commonly made up from materials such as porcelain and composite resin which can offer more whitening capability than traditional teeth whitening treatments do.
Cost of Getting Dental Veneers
As an optional cosmetic dental treatment, veneers & lumineers are not typically covered by dental insurance & their cost is often paid for out of pocket. So, how affordable are they?
Types of Veneer Materials
The average cost of veneers varies depending on the type of material used in their construction.
- Porcelain Veneers are the most common type of veneer used in cosmetic dentistry. On average, this type of veneer material costs between $600-$1,800 per tooth & has a lifespan between 10-20 years. The downside is that the construction of porcelain veneers takes longer than lumineers or composite resin.
- Composite Resin Veneers are another type of commonly available veneer. These type of veneers typically costs between $500-$1,500 per tooth, but are also less durable than the porcelain material with an average lifespan of 5-10 years. The convenience is that composite resin veneers can be built and added to your smile within the same day.
- Lumineers are a much thinner form of veneers that require less removal of the enamel layer to be installed. This newer technology is easier to install & costs around the same or a little more than normal veneers at $600-$2,000 per tooth, but also has a shorter average lifespan between 5-10 years.
- Clip-On Veneers offer an affordable solution with removable pairs that cost between $300-$700 on average.
