Dental veneers are a fantastic way to rejuvenate and restore your smile. Ideal for patients who have healthy teeth with cosmetic imperfections, porcelain veneers are a long-lasting solution that allows us to create the perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of. Even a single veneer on a tooth that is chipped or deeply stained can make a dramatic difference in your overall appearance. Despite these benefits, many of our patients have concerns about the costs of veneers in NYC, which is understandable—veneers are a significant investment. Here’s what you should know.
What do porcelain veneers cost in NYC?
The average cost of porcelain veneers is $2,000 to $4,500 per tooth. These veneers can last up to 15 years, and sometimes even longer with good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Because veneers are meant to last a decade or more, it’s important to invest in a skilled cosmetic dentist who takes the time to create custom porcelain veneers that fit your facial features and proportions. Poorly done veneers call unwanted attention to your smile, while veneers that are customized to your needs simply make you look like an improved version of yourself.
How much does a full set of veneers cost?
Many patients request a “full set of veneers,” but realistically, there’s no need to put veneers on all of your teeth. Only teeth that show when you smile need veneers and the number of teeth required for this varies from patient to patient, depending on the size of your smile. We do offer discounts when multiple veneers are needed; we can provide you with an exact cost during your consultation appointment.
Will my dental insurance plan cover the cost of veneers?
Because dental veneers are used to correct aesthetic imperfections in your smile, they are not usually covered by dental insurance.
Can you pay monthly for veneers?
Yes, we are pleased to offer flexible monthly payment plans for porcelain veneers, with 12 months of interest-free financing for patients with approved credit. We work with CareCredit to make veneers and other dental procedures fit into your budget so you can feel confident in your smile.
Are there cheaper alternatives to porcelain veneers?
Yes, there are cheaper alternatives to porcelain veneers, but they’re usually only cheaper in the short-term. While the upfront costs for these veneers may be less, they also have a much shorter lifespan, so in the long-term, you’ll save money by choosing porcelain veneers. Not only do these veneers not last as long, they also don’t look as realistic, as they’re made with a lower quality material. Many inexpensive veneers are not customized for each patient, resulting in a boxy, cookie-cutter appearance.
Why are veneers so expensive?
Porcelain veneers are designed to stand the test of time and to look completely natural. To achieve this, they are carefully fabricated by expert ceramists in a dental laboratory. Just like a natural tooth is made with layers of enamel, a veneer is made with thin layers of porcelain. This painstaking process produces highly realistic results, but it also requires an investment.
Are porcelain veneers worth it?
Yes, porcelain veneers are worth the cost—our patients are thrilled with their new smiles! If you’ve felt self-conscious about your teeth for years or even decades, your veneers will make you proud to share your smile with the world.
