Porcelain veneers are an excellent way to improve the appearance of the teeth that show when you smile and speak. By providing your teeth with a brand-new surface, this popular cosmetic dentistry treatment can give you the confidence to love your smile again. The cost of porcelain veneers can vary dramatically and is based on the number of veneers you choose, the materials used, and the experience of the dentist placing them. During an in-depth consultation at our Kansas City, MO, office we can provide a personalized estimate and help you plan and budget for treatment. Since your total porcelain veneers cost may be more than you can pay all at once, John Goodman, D.D.S. also accepts CareCredit® financing to make cosmetic treatments more affordable.
Factors that Affect Cost
There are a range of considerations that can affect your overall treatment expense.
Type of Veneers
Perhaps the most significant factor to affect the cost of your porcelain veneers will be the type of veneers you choose. All veneers use high-quality dental porcelain to ensure a strong and long-lasting improvement to your smile, but different types of veneers will vary in how and where they are crafted, factors which can influence price. For example, LUMINEERS® dental veneers use proprietary technology to create a veneer that is as thin as a contact lens. While this brand can be more expensive, patients who are concerned about veneers adding bulk to the thickness of their teeth often prefer to receive LUMINEERS.
Traditional dental veneers are created in an off-site dental laboratory, which can be more affordable. Dr. Goodman also offers same-day veneers, which can be as little as half the cost of other options. During your consultation, Dr. Goodman will discuss all your treatment options, and make sure you understand the benefits of each type of veneer available to you.
Amount of Veneers
Another factor that affects patient cost is the number of veneers you receive. When you come in for your initial consultation, Dr. Goodman will discuss your aesthetic concerns and make recommendations for the number of veneers best suited to achieving your goals. Some patients like the unique features that make their smiles individual and wish only to change one or two teeth to better fit with their overall smile. Other patients may wish for an entirely new appearance to all the teeth that show when they smile.
Dr. Goodman can also provide unique solutions, such as providing veneers as a cost-effective alternative to Invisalign®.
Choosing the Right Dentist
The skill level and experience of the cosmetic dentist you choose will also affect the cost of your veneers. Other dentists may offer lower prices, but inexperienced work and cheaper materials can require earlier replacement and revisional procedures for your veneers. Dr. Goodman has over two decades of experience helping his patients transform their smiles. With his significant experience, he can tailor treatment to your unique needs, creating highly detailed plans that enable him to remove less tissue and preserve more of your natural smile.
