One of the first things you notice when you meet somebody is their smile, and when it is a pearly-white, dazzling smile it makes a lasting impression. Who doesn’t want straight, white, spotless teeth, and the confidence that comes with them?
Veneers have become an increasingly popular option for people with small, blemished, or cracked teeth. And now, they can be affordable too! If you suffer from low self-confidence about your teeth, veneers could change your life.
Considering factors of price, quality, and differing methods of application, you can choose the type of veneer that best suits your needs. With a new boost of self-assurance and a winning smile, the only way is up.
This more cost-effective veneer option will provide you with the end results of your dreams, covering up a range of flaws, such as misshapen teeth and discoloration, while remaining affordable.
However, resin veneers are less resistant to stains and damage and often need to be replaced before porcelain veneers would.
The application of resin veneers is a relatively quick and non-invasive procedure. No enamel needs to be removed from the teeth in this procedure. Instead, the resin veneers are stuck onto the surface of your teeth. The veneers are filed down to match the shape of your teeth for a natural finish.
Porcelain veneers cost a little more than resin, but for good reason. Not only are they more resistant to stains, but porcelain veneers are stronger and more durable, and can last up to twenty years. These veneers are custom-made for you and can cover darker stained teeth, as well as provide a more natural appearance.
These veneers are customized to your mouth. First, you will need to have the natural enamel on your teeth shaved down for the application of porcelain veneers. Then your dentist will make a mold of your teeth and make your porcelain veneers to fit you.
It is worth weighing up all of the pros and cons of both types of veneers before you decide which to go for - find the smile that suits your needs best.
Cost of Veneers
When choosing which type of veneers to get you will consider the quality of the materials and the work. If you are going to make this life-changing decision, you might as well go all out and get your perfect, high-quality smile. However, this leads to another consideration…
The process of getting veneers is known for being expensive, and the last thing you want to do is compromise on price and end up with teeth that don’t live up to your hopes. However, you do not need to be discouraged by the cost, when there are measures you can take to make the veneers price accessible. With the help of a good dental plan that makes your new and improved smile affordable, you can have your cake and eat it too.
The cost of your veneers will depend on these factors:
- Material: Resin or porcelain? Porcelain is the more expensive option but will last longer, so it is important to weigh up the benefits and long-term costs too.
- The number of teeth: Veneers are priced per tooth and will cost upwards of $450, so depending on how many teeth you want to have done, this price will add up pretty quickly.
- The dentist: Some dentists will charge extra for x-rays, molds, and the installation process.
In the end, it is common to spend considerably more than $4000 on a set of veneers. On top of that, it is recommendable to get long-term veneer care to avoid cavities or damage. However, as they say at Group Enroll, healthcare can be complicated but insurance coverage doesn’t need to be!
When there’s a will to have the perfect smile, there is certainly a way. With this in mind, we can redefine veneers as an affordable and realistic option for those who need that extra confidence boost.
Having weighed up the options of material, method, and results, you will now have an idea of which type of veneer is right for you. You are one step closer to the set of pearly whites that will change your life. It’s time to live that dream and with the right coverage, it can become a reality.
Whether you opt for the less expensive, noninvasive resin veneers, or the more durable and long-lasting porcelain variety, your beautiful new teeth will redefine how you live your life. With your newfound confidence, a brighter smile, and the confidence that you got a good price, you will radiate joy! What are you waiting for?
