Do you want whiter, straighter, more evenly shaped teeth? Porcelain veneers can help you achieve a more attractive smile in just two dental appointments.
At Dr. Steven Hochfelder’s dental practice in Lake Mary, FL, we place high quality porcelain veneers to mask a full range of cosmetic flaws. Of course, we understand that patients want to have an idea of what porcelain veneers treatment will cost. Here, we discuss the top factors that affect the cost of porcelain veneers.
1. The Material
There are different types of dental porcelain, with the highest quality being the best option. At our practice, we use e.max® porcelain, which offers beautiful and natural results. When it comes to fabricating veneers, we want to use the best materials so you are happy with the results. Since the veneers are placed on the front facing teeth and highly visible, it is important that they look as natural as possible.
2. The Quality of the Dental Lab
We have worked with a trusted dental lab for 27 years. Their technicians produce exceptional work and play an important role in helping us achieve the best possible results for our patients.
3. Traditional vs. No-prep Veneers
At our practice in Lake Mary, we offer the option of traditional vs. non-prep veneers.
With traditional veneers, we will remove a minimal amount of tooth enamel to address flaws and create room for the veneers. This option requires additional work and may have a higher cost.
No-prep veneers are great for patients with minor aesthetic flaws. This option is ideal because it is reversible and does not require the long-term costs of porcelain veneers replacement.
4. The Number of Veneers
Some patients just need one porcelain veneer placed to address a cosmetic flaw such as a chipped tooth. Other patients want to have veneers placed on all of their lower and upper front facing teeth for a complete smile makeover.
The cost of a single porcelain veneer will cost less than a full set of veneers.
5. The Experience of the Dentist
A new dentist that needs more experience placing veneers may charge less for treatment. However, patients may not be as happy with their results.
For patients that wish to undergo treatment with an experienced dentist, Dr. Hochfelder is a good choice. Whether you need a single veneer placed or a full set of veneers, he can help you achieve the results you desire.
He will also provide you with a detailed wax-up so you can see what your results will look like before the lab fabricates your veneers.
6. The Practice Location
The location of the practice does play a role in the cost of treatment. For example, a dentist in a bigger city such as Miami may charge more because the cost of operating a business there is higher.
