The Benefits vs. the Cost of Dental Veneers

Penn Dental Family Practice Is Philadelphia’s Trusted Source for Veneers

For patients with surface-damaged, discolored, or stained teeth, dental veneer treatment is one of the easiest and most effective treatments available. Rather than removing the affected tooth or installing a crown, applying a porcelain veneer instantly and painlessly restores the bright, natural appearance of your tooth.

It’s a great, simple treatment. But is it worth the cost?

The cost of dental veneers is a concern for many patients. While veneers can be expensive compared to other dental treatment options, they represent a long-term investment in your dental health and appearance.

Is the Cost of Dental Veneers Worthwhile? Pros and Cons

Are dental veneers the appropriate treatment option for you? At Penn Dental Family Practice, our dental veneer specialists are proud to offer elite porcelain veneer installations—as well as other treatment options for enamel damage.

Ultimately, your personal preference will be a major factor in determining whether or not dental veneers are the appropriate treatment option for your specific case . However, we are glad to help walk you through the pros and cons of veneers. We’ve listed a few key points below.

  • The-Cost-Of-Dental-VeneersPro: Enamel Replacement
    Your teeth are coated by protective enamel. Though highly durable, enamel can be damaged by acidic foods and drinks, as well as injuries to the teeth. Once eroded, enamel cannot grow back. Veneers provide an exceptional, functional replacement for lost enamel.
  • Con: Permanence
    Once installed, veneers are fused to your tooth for life. While this one time treatment is appealing for many patients, others find the permanent nature of the procedure somewhat daunting.
  • Pro: Whiter Teeth, Faster
    No other treatment for whitening teeth and eliminating surface stains works faster than veneers, which instantly replace discolored surfaces with bright, white porcelain that is indistinguishable from natural tooth.
  • Con: High Upfront Cost
    Veneers, as previously mentioned, are more expensive than many other dental surface treatments. However, the permanent status of veneers means that they are a long-term investment.
