Are you looking to significantly improve the appearance of your smile without the discomfort and time it takes to straighten your teeth with braces? Then veneers may be a good solution for you! However, they do come with a cost that leaves some individuals thinking twice. In this blog post, we will evaluate whether or not veneers are worth it.
What Are Veneers?
Dental veneers are quite simple. They are thin coverings placed over the front of your teeth giving a natural appearance. Veneers can be used to correct many dental issues including
- Stained teeth that are unable to be whitened by bleaching
- Chipped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth, or uneven spacing
Veneers are made to resemble the desired color of your teeth and are typically made of porcelain or a resin material.
Cost of Veneers
The cost of veneers is determined by several factors. If you are looking to obtain veneers purely for cosmetic reasons, your insurance will not contribute to the cost. In this instance, you should be prepared to spend at least a thousand dollars per tooth, and they will typically need to be replaced about every 10 to 15 years.
Another factor that plays a role in the cost of veneers is the brand that you choose. You’ll also pay more to have veneers installed by a dentist with extensive experience. Like most other things, you get what you pay for when having veneers made and placed.
Are Veneers Worth It?
Veneers can help you to feel confident about your smile, making a huge difference in the quality of your everyday life. However, they are costly and difficult to apply. With this in mind, is it worth it to get veneers?
Many argue, yes, it is worth it. The ability to keep your veneers for 10 years or more allows individuals to feel confident about the cost of investment. But, what do you think? Are you still considering veneers as a possible treatment solution?
