Porcelain Dental Veneers - Average Cost / Monthly Payment OptionsSince not everyone is born with a great smile, they often turn to aesthetic dentistry treatment in order to look their very best. One especially effective treatment for aesthetic dental care is the use of porcelain dental veneers.

About Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers (aka dental veneers) are thin shells of specially crafted dental porcelain. These thin shells of dental ceramic are adhered to the front portions of the patient's teeth, masking a wide array of aesthetic dental problems such as:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Tooth stains/discoloration
  • Uneven teeth
  • Tooth gaps

When in place, porcelain veneers are totally indistinguishable from a patient's natural teeth.

The Average Cost of Porcelain Veneers

The average cost of porcelain veneers can vary greatly from practice to practice. This is particularly problematic when a patient needs multiple porcelain veneers, for instance. Because of this, we feel that providing an exact price or even a price range will not convey the full story of porcelain veneers treatment.

As such, we recommend that patients stop in for a cosmetic dentistry consultation so that they can receive a price estimate from our team that reflects the patient's needs.

Factors That Affect Total Cost of Porcelain Veneers Treatment

Some factors that affect the total cost of porcelain veneers treatment include:

  • The geographic location of the dental care practice
  • The training/certifications of the dentists at the practice
  • The complexity of the patient's case
  • The need for multiple porcelain veneers
  • Special discounts and/or promotions unique to a practice

Financing Options for Porcelain Veneers

Since the cost of porcelain veneers can vary greatly and place a financial burden on some households, some patients turn to financing options and payment plans in order to pay for the total cost of their smile makeover treatment. These financing options involve a trusted third-party lender who will pay for the total cost of the porcelain veneers up front. The patient will then be responsible for paying back the third party on a monthly basis. A reasonable interest rate will apply.

Do these financing plans apply to other cosmetic dentistry treatments?

Yes. The financing options for dental care can be used for cosmetic and restorative/general dentistry procedures, allowing patients to pay for extensive treatments that they may not be able to afford at the moment.
