How much do veneers cost?

If you are reading this article, then you are most likely interested in veneers to improve the aesthetics of your smile, and you are now looking to explore how much they will cost: a careful consideration, particularly after the pandemic has caused us all to consider spending more wisely. The Dental Room can assist in providing further information, plus offering an outcome that will be of excellent value and one that will be customised to you.

Cost of veneers

Each smile makeover journey starts with a consultation with myself – Dr Shawn Rama – for $170. The cost of veneers varies based on a number of factors: composite veneers (on average) cost between $250 and $650 per tooth.

Here at The Dental Room, we specialise in porcelain veneers, and we offer fully personalised prices depending on your needs, your smile goals and the complexity of each case. 

The great thing about porcelain veneers is that they can last up to 15 years (with the necessary maintenance and check-ups), whereas composite veneers last between just five and seven years, meaning you will be heading back to your clinic to pay for replacements. So, it’s worth factoring this into consideration. The key is to select the right cosmetic dentist for the procedure, and to book in a consultation to discuss your options. The best in aesthetic dentistry are always willing to take you through the pros and cons, and to work in partnership with you to design that winning smile.

Why porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers give you the most natural, tooth-like aesthetics, as they are individually hand-layered with at least five different shades of porcelain powder and artistically created to form a level of depth and translucent quality that is similar to the tooth enamel. They can be used to cover just one tooth, or multiple teeth for a more complete look, plus they are versatile enough to be customised to suit both teeth and budget.

The goal of any cosmetic treatment is to achieve that natural look, and the fact we have our own master ceramist – Ms Chloe Park – who hand-creates each and every one of our veneers, means that they stand out from other dental clinics you may have visited.

We pride ourselves on delivering that customised smile – with face mapping techniques, we are able to work closely with the client to achieve the best outcome. Porcelain veneers also help protect your natural teeth and improve the function and feel of your smile at the same time.

With porcelain veneers, you are often required to wear temporaries while you wait for your veneers to be sculpted in our lab. However, the process is feedback-driven over a series of appointments with both myself and the master ceramist at The Dental Room, and therefore it gives you a chance to feel involved and have your input taken into account along the way, to help achieve the desired result.

You help to design a look that works for and suits YOU. At first glance you may consider the cost as a barrier, however, note that the value is second to none when you consider the longevity of porcelain veneers, and the quality that is provided by The Dental Room.

If you’re ready for veneers, we’re here to guide you with our expertise and experience. It’s your smile and the bespoke process that sets us apart from other cosmetic dentists.

Together with our in-house ceramist – Dr Chloe Park – our entire team will be right by your side from planning, creation, to execution. We can achieve every aspect of your veneer creation, from the accuracy of your tooth dimensions, its degree of translucency, to its unique contours and shape. We offer a unique experience and wide range of treatment options, meeting the needs of each individual at all stages of life.

Choosing the right dentist for you is also important. My 20 years of experience matched with my mission to change the stereotypes associated with dentistry by creating a space for clients outside the usual clinical experience, I hope provides clients with assurance that we’re what they’ve been looking for when it comes to porcelain veneers and creating that ‘perfect’ smile. And by that – I mean ‘perfect’ in terms of what is desired by the client, not the cookie-cutter ‘perfect’.

The comfort and wellbeing of my clients at The Dental Room is so important. We have a close-knit family here in our Melbourne clinic, with many travelling interstate from Sydney to begin their porcelain veneers journey with us.

No fear… there’s a payment plan for veneers

The Dental Room offers interest-free payment plans for eligible clients via ZipMoney. If you are considering investing in veneers, it’s best to enquire with one of our team members who can talk you through the options available to you.
