Whether you just can’t seem to achieve the brightness you’d like through professional tooth whitening, your teeth have suffered cosmetic damage, or you want to bring symmetry to your smile, dental veneers are an excellent option. A cosmetic treatment, veneers improve your aesthetic, correcting cracked, chipped, broken, discolored, uneven, overlapping, and even under- or over-sized teeth. But, how much are veneers in Miami? Are they affordable?
It depends. There is a wide range when it comes to the cost of dental veneers, with many factors at play. The location of the treated tooth / teeth, severity of your concern, your dentist’s skill and experience, and other details affect the cost. One of the biggest is the type of veneers you choose: porcelain or composite.
Porcelain veneers typically cost between $900 and $2,500 per tooth. A full set can cost up to $20,000. With proper care, they can last 10 to 15 years or longer.
Resin composite veneers are more cost effective than porcelain, typically costing between $250 and $1,500 per tooth. However, they aren’t as durable and may need to be reapplied every four to eight years.
Your initial investment is less with composite, so that is a major advantage. However, it’s not as convenient in the long run and may cost more if your veneer(s) needs to be reapplied every few years.
Another factor to consider is that porcelain veneers take two or more visits, as they are custom fitted after impressions are made and the teeth are prepped through removal of dental material. Composite veneers are typically applied in just one session, and no tooth enamel needs to be removed for application.
Porcelain veneers are more stain resistant and typically look more natural than composite. So, how do you know which one is better? It comes down to personal choice after a consultation with your dentist, who can help you make an informed decision.
