A dental veneer is a thin piece of ceramic that Dr. Mashnouk of Cass Family Dental attaches to the front of your tooth to disguise minor cosmetic issues. If you have stained, cracked, or misshapen teeth, you may not feel completely satisfied with the appearance of your smile. The same is true when you have a noticeable gap between teeth. Since some or all of the cost of dental veneers is out-of-pocket, many patients want to know “How much do veneers cost?” before agreeing to get them.
Estimates for Dental Veneers
Many factors determine how much you end up paying for your dental veneers, such as how many you want Dr. Mashnouk to install and the overall condition of your teeth. The materials you choose for the veneers makes a difference as well. Porcelain and resin composite materials are the most common. According to the Consumer Guide to Dentistry, most people pay between $750 and $1,500 per tooth for dental veneers. This is in addition to miscellaneous costs such as dental x-rays, temporary veneers, and optional teeth whitening. If you need all of these services and have several teeth treated, your cost may come close to $20,000.
Check with Your Insurance Company Regarding Coverage
It’s common for dental insurance carriers to classify dental veneers as a cosmetic enhancement and, therefore, refuse to pay claims for them. This is usually not the case if you choose to get dental veneers after an accident or trauma to the face. Although we accept many types of insurance, we are unable to tell you whether your insurance company will pay for this procedure. We encourage you to contact your carrier in advance of the procedure to determine this. Cass Family Dental accepts all major credit cards as well as Care Credit.
