If you have been looking into getting dental veneers, you have probably wondered how much they cost. Will dental insurance help burden some of the costs of Porcelain Veneers? In this article, we will go over costs of dental veneers in the greater Houston, TX area, as well as answer other lingering questions that you may have.
How much do dental veneers cost in Houston, TX?
The average cost of dental veneers in Houston, TX, is $1,200. That is the cost of a single Porcelain veneer. Other factors may be included in the price, which include:
- How many of your teeth need Porcelain Veneers. If you need veneers on most of your teeth expect to pay between $10,000 and $25,000.
- If your teeth need any additional work before dental veneer treatment, such as root canals or build-ups.
- The lab costs associated with your dental veneer treatment.
- The geographic area in and around Houston where you get your veneers. Some areas are more expensive than others.
The last point needs to be emphasized. Areas such as The Woodlands and Sugar Land tend to have cosmetic dental offices that charge more for their dental veneers. Below is a chart of the cost of veneers in and around the Houston area.
Will Dental Insurance Lower My Costs for Veneers?
Unfortunately, your dental insurance plan will not help you with the burden of the costs of getting your dental veneers. Since veneers are purely a cosmetic dental procedure, most insurance companies will not cover them.
There are many plans out there when it comes to dental insurance. Some may cover a small portion of the costs, while most won’t cover any of them. Check with your cosmetic dentist to see exactly what your plan covers and your out-of-pocket expenses.
Other Factors That Determine Dental Veneer Costs
Type of material used.
Perhaps the number one determining factor in Dental Veneer costs is the types of materials used to construct the dental veneer. There are a variety of different materials that are used in today’s age to make dental veneers. Some materials are better than others depending on how your mouth functions and how exactly your jaw dictates your tooth shape. Therefore, a highly qualified cosmetic dentist needs to pick out the material based on their experience. Unfortunately, choosing just any dentist may lead to a cosmetic result that is not to your satisfaction.
- Porcelain Veneers: As its name suggests, this is the top-of-the-line material used today to construct dental veneers. A thin shell of Porcelain is fabricated and bonded on top of your natural tooth structure to help you regain your beautiful smile.
- Composite Veneers: These veneers are made of a filling material called composite. Unlike Porcelain Veneers that are constructed in a laboratory, these veneers are made chair-side by your actual dentist. The advantage is that these veneers are less expensive; however, they are not as cosmetically engaging as their Porcelain counterpart.
The dental laboratory used.
Another significant determining factor in costs is which laboratory the dentist uses to help them construct the dental veneer. Not all labs are equal; some produce better, stronger, and more aesthetic dental veneers than others. These labs tend to be more expensive, which usually means your dental veneer will turn out to cost more as well. It’s very similar to buying a car. Some cars are better than others, and hence they are more expensive. The same principle applies to dental veneers.
Fortunately, at Best Dental, we work with some of the best labs in the country, producing amazing results that you have to see for yourself. At the same time, our dental veneers prices can’t be matched anywhere in the Houston area.
Your geographic location.
Cosmetic dentistry will cost more in major metropolitan cities like Los Angeles, New York, and Houston. Dental veneers will cost less in smaller rural towns as most dentists have a lower overhead on the treatment in those areas.
Whether a cosmetic or family dentist performs your case.
Some dentists across town will be well-known for the number of cosmetic cases that they perform. These dentists specialize in cosmetic dentistry and tend to charge more than your traditional family dentist. Usually, you will see a better-quality end product when you use a qualified cosmetic specialist.
