How do veneers work and how much do they cost?

So, veneers, they’re basically like false
fingernails that fit over the front and the edge of the teeth. They are designed basically
to enhance and improve the colour of the teeth, the size of the teeth, the shape of the teeth,
and they’re one of the most commonly used cosmetic dentistry materials. Veneers are
basically made of two materials. One is porcelain and the other is composite resin. And the
veneer basically is designed to fit over the front of the teeth and just slightly over
the edge as you can see on this little model. So, this is a design that we’re making for
an enhancement of teeth. So, porcelain is like a glass-like substance often called ceramic.
And porcelain veneers are the most lifelike, the most durable and the prettiest form of
veneer. And they generally have to be made in the dental laboratory by one of our master
ceramic technicians. The other method is to use a composite resin. And again, they can
also be made in the laboratory, but very often they’re done by the dentist chair side. And
the dentist uses his artistry and his skill to build the veneer up directly onto the patient’s
tooth. If veneers are made with a very skilled pair
of hands either the dentist’s hands, for example, making composite veneers often called bonding
or the master ceramic technicians that make porcelain veneers. In essence, the skill of
the craftsman making those two things is the most important factor in having them look
natural. The second most important factor is the desire of the patient. Some of our
patients want very natural, very aesthetic results. So, enhancement of their teeth, but
not necessarily to make them look fake and that aesthetic choice is a personal choice.
And some patients come and they want the Hollywood smile, or the most perfect set of white teeth.
And they can look less natural, more cosmetic. But again, that’s down to the choice of the
patient and the desire, you know, for what they want to look like. But a lot of it comes
down to the skill of the craftsman that make the veneers. And they can look as natural
as the patient wants them to look. So, veneers and caps are generally not referring
to the same thing. The traditional term cap is usually referring to a crown. And a crown
in the dental profession terminology is something that completely envelops the whole tooth.
It’s a 360-degree wrap, complete enclosure of the tooth. And a cap is very often done
when the tooth is completely broken down and needs a major reconstruction. Whereas, a veneer
like the term suggests is a very thin layer that fits just over the front of the tooth,
almost like a false fingernail and it overlaps the edge of the tooth. So, in essence, the
bulk of the tooth structure is still intact. And veneers sometimes require very, very little
or and in some cases no tooth reduction or tooth preparation, but in most cases a very
minimal tooth reduction, whereas a cap very often requires a lot of tooth structure to be
removed. So, the cost of veneers depends on a lot of
factors. There are quite a few variables. There are two main types of veneers. Those
that are made by porcelain and they’re made in a dental laboratory with a dental technician,
and then there are veneers that are made chairside using composite resin often done purely by
the dentist directly on the tooth. So, laboratory made veneers will carry an extra cost because
of the fee that the dental technician will charge, whereas composite resin veneers often
don’t carry that fee and are usually about 50% of the cost of the porcelain veneers.
The composite veneers can also be done in one visit usually. So, you’re not paying for
as much of the dentist type. Cost will also depend very much on quality. That might be
the quality of the craftsmanship. So that could be the dentist, their skill and their
experience in doing that particular treatment, or the craftsmanship and quality of the dental
technician or the ceramist who makes the porcelain veneers. And as in all professions, there
are very highly skilled masters in those fields and those that are less experienced. The desire
of the patient to look as perfect as possible, the complexity or the difficulty of the case
for that particular patient will also have a bearing on cost. And often the number of
veneers done per procedure will have some bearing on cost. So, for example, if you’re
having multiple teeth veneer, usually the individual cost of the veneer comes down.
And the single tooth that has to be matched perfectly to a natural tooth next to it can
be almost as costly as having two teeth done because of the difficulty in doing that procedure.
So, it really varies and it will vary from person to person. As a ballpark in southern
England and London, composite veneer will cost anywhere from 300 to 500 pounds currently
and you may pay anywhere from 700 to 1500 pounds per tooth for a porcelain veneer. But
it will vary.

  17. Rob G says:

    You want a laugh I went to a recommended dentist in UK said I needed a filling, was quoted £500 for 1 filling, this wasnt a root canal but a simple filling. They charged me £185 for the consultation and 1 cbct they did at the end that I have to go back for to get checked at £95. I asked if they had a price list they didn't i though they had to, this is meant to be a top practice but I guess if you have to ask the price you can't afford it.

  18. Dapper Dan Man! says:

    I can personally vouch for this man, he done my teeth, completely professional and excellent work.

  19. rlh125 says:

    I appreciate the video. One thing that I have noticed, though, is that so few dental professionals – even those who specialize in veneers – seem to HAVE veneers themselves. They can certainly afford them. I can’t help but wonder if it is because they think it is unwise to destroy your actual teeth for a temporary cosmetic replacement.

  20. citticat2 says:

    Please people don't ever get vaneers. I had one front tooth that was yellow and my dentist suggested 2 veneers (to match) and I ended up getting both teeth extracted. The dentist never told me that decay sets in between the two spaces – the tooth and the veneer) and decay sets in and the rest is history.

  21. Mheartshape says:

    an one use braces to heighten the teeth caausing gaps in between in stead of polishing the edges before gluing on a veneer
