How much are Lumineers, and what payment options are available to cover the cost?
Lumineers, or veneers, are a type of cosmetic procedure that cover an existing tooth to either improve its appearance or protect it from damage. Keep reading to learn how the cost of Lumineers can vary depending on a variety of factors.
Typically, the cost of Lumineers is between $800 to $2,000 per tooth, depending on each individual and his or her needs.
Cost can increase depending on the difficulty of the job, the size of the tooth, and the location of the dentist. For an accurate cost, it is best to call an office with a certified Lumineers dentist.
Typically made of porcelain, Lumineers cover existing teeth. They usually require preparation work—a small layer of the tooth is removed so the covering will fit and stick. This allows them to fit tighter and save important enamel underneath.
Although Lumineers may cost more than veneers, they typically last up to 20 years.
Cosmetic dental treatments such as Lumineers aren’t usually covered by private dental health insurance or Medicaid. However, there are options for those who do not have the cash up front.
For instance, CareCredit is available to pay for dental procedures like Lumineers. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card that allows you to pay for the procedure up front and then make monthly payments on your balance.
Take your child to the dentist to determine if he or she needs Lumineers or an entirely different treatment.
