Dental veneers and Lumineers are a thin cover of teeth. These are made from a tooth-colored material that covers the front side of the teeth. Dental veneers are also called porcelain dental laminates.
Dental veneers are permanently placed (glued) on the front surface of the teeth to correct the color, shape, size, and length of the teeth. Dental veneers are of three types: Dental Lumineers, Porcelain dental veneers, and Composite dental veneers.
Dental veneers are a permanent solution for teeth whitening, remove stains on teeth, remove teeth gaps, and fix broken teeth.
Dental veneers are of three types:
These are strong and require no trimming of teeth.
These are the strongest, but require a little trimming of teeth.
These are very weak and break very easily. These are not recommended.
Dental veneers and Lumineers are placed in 3-4 days in two parts.
First Visit: In the first visit, the dentist does a complete check-up and takes an impression of the mouth. In the case of dental veneers, the impression is taken after reducing the teeth, whereas for Lumineers, an impression is taken without tooth reduction. The first visit takes 30-60 minutes. Dental veneers are made in 2-3 days.
Second Visit: After a gap of 2-3 days, in the second visit, the dental veneers are permanently glued to the surface of the teeth using a very strong chemical.
The second visit takes a longer time because each dental veneer or Lumineer takes 20-30 minutes to apply on one tooth. So, if you need multiple dental veneers then it can take up to 7-8 hours to apply on all teeth.
A CAD / CAM (Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing) machine is used to manufacture tooth crown, dental veneers, Lumineers, and dental bridge from zirconia (ceramic) material. This machine has high accuracy and is completely automatic.
An intra-oral scanner takes a 3D image of the mouth. This 3D image is directly sent to the CAD / CAM machine that makes tooth crown, dental veneers, Lumineers, and dental bridge from zirconia (ceramic) material, that fits perfectly on the tooth.
Multiple dental veneers are used in the dental treatment. Each tooth requires one dental veneer. Therefore, the total cost of dental veneers is calculated by multiplying the cost of one dental veneer with the total number of dental veneers.
The average cost of dental veneers is $ 1260 per tooth in USA and $ 80 per tooth outside of USA at our clinic.
Total cost of dental veneers in USA = $ 1260 X total number of dental veneers
Total cost of dental veneers outside of USA = $ 80 X total number of dental veneers
Example, for 10 dental veneers, the cost will be:
Cost in USA
$ 1260 X 10
Cost outside of USA
$ 80 X 10
$ 1260 X 10
: $ 12600
$ 80 X 10
: $ 800
Dental veneers are very expensive in USA, but you can save a lot of money by traveling to an affordable location outside of USA for 3-4 days for the dental treatment.
For example, at our clinic, the cost of dental veneers is $ 80 per tooth which is 16 times lower
than the average cost of $ 1260 per tooth in USA. So, you can save a lot of money, and at the same time enjoy a free holiday trip.
