How Much are Veneers?

To achieve a perfect smile, many decide to go down the route of having veneers. However, understanding what type of veneers are best for you and the costs are key factors in deciding on whether they are the right choice for you.

Composite Veneers

If you are looking to get composite veneers, it is important to know how much it is going to cost you. For a single tooth, you are looking at around £150-£400, however it all depends on how many you need. The price can also vary on what dentist you visit as well as the dental laboratory fee so ensure you do thorough research beforehand to get the best deal possible. As composite veneers are the cheaper option, be sure to weigh up on whether the veneers will be sustainable enough for you.

Composite veneers will require more maintenance over the long term than porcelain as they will stain, wear, chip, discolour and possibly fracture.

It is usual for any issues to be covered for the first year after placement but fees will apply after this period. However, composite is easy to repair and therefore any maintenance fee is usually much less than the cost of the veneer.

It is important to remember that composite has limitations in terms of aesthetics. The material is excellent but cannot provide the same level of shine, characterisation, light reflection, ability to change shape and colour as much as porcelain.

Your dentist will be able to advise you on which is best for you.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are another route to consider, however with a single tooth costing between £500-£1500, there is a remarkable difference in price when comparing to composite veneers. Although more expensive, many choose porcelain veneers for their natural and authentic look. Also, providing you practice good oral hygiene, porcelain veneers can last much longer than composites, ensuring you receive good value for money.

As mentioned above, porcelain veneers can look amazing and truly transform your smile. This is often a price worth paying for.

Durathin and Lumineers Veneers

Whilst the most common veneers are composite and porcelain, there are also several other types to investigate such as Durathin veneers. Many choose this option as it requires minimal treatment beforehand as well as no need for any drilling or anaesthetic. However, the price can vary between £900-£1100 so it is essential to do research to consider whether this is the right option for you. Another option to look at is Lumineers veneers. Whilst these are a little thicker than Durathin, Lumineers veneers are suited to those who suffer from tooth discolouration. For Lumineers veneers, the typical cost for one tooth starts at £700 so again, be sure to weigh up all your options to ensure you make the right decision.

For both systems, your teeth do need to be straight and not too dark. Regardless of what the brand says, if you have crooked teeth, this system will not work for you!

Factors to Consider

The cost of your veneers can be significantly different when looking at the variety of factors that need to be considered before choosing. Whilst dentists may charge different prices, it is important to check out their level of experience as well as what they specialise in as the price may vary on whether they are in training. Also, check to see whether there are any promotional offers or discounts that can help save you money. Another factor to consider is how many veneers you will need. Depending on how many teeth are visible when you smile may determine how many you need to purchase to complete your look.

If you require more information, make sure you conduct thorough research into the types of veneers available as well as reading reviews from users who have had the procedure already. It is also worth speaking to your dentist to see their body of work to ensure you are in the best hands when having your veneers fitted.
