Porcelain veneers are among the most elegant and natural-looking options for making over a smile. They are also among the most durable; with proper maintenance, porcelain veneers can last for a decade or longer, providing years of pristine, radiant smiles. However, many people are hesitant to even inquire about cosmetic dentistry treatments, fearing that the cost of options such as porcelain veneers and other smile makeover treatments may be prohibitive. However, at Artistic Expressions Dentistry, the Philadelphia-area cosmetic and restorative dentistry practice of Dr. Bruce Wilderman, we work with patients to ensure that porcelain veneers cost is manageable and within the reach of most budgets.
The precise cost of porcelain veneers depends on several factors; in particular, it depends on the number of teeth in need of treatment. A single veneer may be placed if only one tooth is aesthetically flawed; however, most people require multiple veneers. Indeed, to ensure the most transformative and uniform results, it is likely that a set of veneers will need to be crafted. The cost of multiple veneers will run into the thousands of dollars; however, the results of treatment justify the cost for most patients. The porcelain we use in our veneers is the highest-grade available, and Dr. Wilderman provides veneers that are customized to perfectly complement the size, shape, texture, and color of surrounding teeth.
The cost of veneers is generally not covered by dental insurance; however, for patients who wish to finance their veneers, CareCreditÂ® provides a potentially attractive option. Our practice also accepts credit card payments. There are also less expensive alternatives to porcelain veneers, including dental bonding. In terms of appearance and durability, however, porcelain veneers remain the gold standard of smile makeover treatments.
