How Much Do Dental Veneers Cost?

Read more to learn about the different types dental veneers, how much they cost, and where to go for affordable dental work near you.

Types of Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells that cover the teeth in order to improve appearance. They can be made from either porcelain or resin composite materials.

Porcelain veneers are more stain resistant and look more like natural teeth than resin veneers. However, resin veneers require less preparation before they are applied.

What Is the Price of Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers can cost anywhere from $250 to $2500 per tooth. However, there are multiple factors that can affect their price, such as:

  • Location—Dental procedure costs often vary from state to state. 
  • Materials—Porcelain veneers are typically cheaper than resin veneers.
  • Number of teeth—The cost of dental veneers will increase with each tooth you have fixed.
  • Dentist fees—Dental care costs vary by dentist.

Why Get Veneers?

Dental veneers can be used to improve the appearance of teeth that are:

  • Chipped
  • Crooked
  • Discolored
  • Worn down

Dental veneers are a permanent solution to damaged teeth. In order to place veneers on your child’s teeth, a dentist must first remove some of the enamel on the current teeth to help the veneers stay in place.
