Dental Veneers are incredibly thin shells that are applied on the front surfaces of a person’s teeth. Depending on the style of veneers, the teeth may be prepped first by removing a small amount of enamel. Once installed, the veneers can cover noticeable flaws to make adjustments to alignment. They can also adjust the thickness of the to improve spacing.
They are very easy to apply, requiring preparation of the teeth and then securing in place with a strong dental adhesive.
There are two main types of dental veneers, composite veneers and porcelain veneers. Composite veneers are manufactured at your dentist office and applied directly to the teeth. Porcelain veneers are made in a laboratory to ensure they fit your teeth and then applied to the tooth’s surface.
Veneers typically are not covered by insurance since they are considered a cosmetic procedure. However, costs can range depending on your dentist. As an average, traditional dental veneers range from $925 to $2,500 per tooth and no-prep dental veneers cost around $800 to $2000 per tooth.
