Cost of Porcelain Veneers
All veneers are not created equal, and the old adage, “you get what you pay for” essential holds true when it comes to porcelain veneers. Choosing an experienced cosmetic dentist who uses the best materials and porcelain will likely provide you with an optimal cosmetic outcome and long-lasting results. Just like shopping for a car, one that is made by hand, like a Ferrari, costs more than a Ford manufactured on an assembly line; they may both get you from point A to point B, but one is made better and will last longer. Veneers are very similar. If you desire a natural-looking smile that can maintain its color and last for decades, then custom, handmade layered e.max® veneers may be the best option for you. These wafer-thin shells of porcelain won’t stain, and when properly bonded, are just as strong as your natural teeth.
Generally, the more veneers you need, the more of an investment you’ll have to make. Many dentist will charge more to make a single veneer or pair of veneers, as its can be very difficult to color match the porcelain to the surrounding teeth. It usually takes a couple of weeks to get a set of custom veneers made. Many times, for an additional cost, we expedite the process and can custom make your new smile in just a few days. This is especially beneficial for our patients who travel from other countries to see us. Lastly, if your case involves extensive rehabilitation, including major changes to the appearance of your teeth, a diagnostic wax-up maybe required, thus increasing the overall cost.
Whether you are looking to achieve a complete smile makeover, or are concerned with improving the appearance of a single tooth, Dr. Michael Kosdon can design a customized porcelain veneers procedure for meeting your specific dental needs and aesthetic goals.

- Any additional dental work that may be necessary to ensure the success of the veneers procedure
- Training and experience of the dentist
