Veneers Before and After

How much do veneers cost?

The complexity of veneers treatments is reflected in the costs. Some patients will only require a single veneer to improve the look of one front tooth and ArtSmiles team will use their skill and superior porcelain veneers to ensure that this single veneer is a close match to the natural teeth.

Other patients with more discolouration or a set of front teeth that are displaying damage, chips or crookedness, may require a full set of veneers. These too will be matched with natural teeth but a certain level of increased ‘brightness’ can also be added to increase the sparkle in a smile.

At the end of your veneers treatment our aim is always to leave you with a smile of which you can be proud and relieve any concerns about damaged, crooked or discoloured teeth that may have been hampering your social or business life.

Our present veneers costs reflect the superior levels of satisfaction that our bespoke porcelain veneers provides, along with the level of expertise our team of cosmetic dentists have that carry out the treatment.

You can view some of our fantastic veneers before and after photos and read our frequently asked questions about veneers to help you decide if they’re for you.

Cost of Composite Veneers:

Composite veneers are less expensive than porcelain because they’re sculpted from special composite resin in a single visit to the dentist. This is different from two or three visits and the expensive lab-work required for porcelain.

Composite veneers are the veneers that are made out of a paste that hardens and is polished by your dentist.  Not every dentist does composite veneers because they are as much art as science. If you have cosmetic problems that need fixing and your teeth are not badly damaged or worn then composite veneers are the veneer of choice.

In Australia, composites cost between $300-600 per tooth and last 5-7 years.

Cost of Porcelain Veneers:

Porcelain veneers are more expensive than composite initially. The placement of porcelain takes more time, expertise and resources. The dental lab’s dentists work with are chosen very carefully and cost money to fabricate restorations. 

In Australia, the price of porcelain veneers can range from $700-$2000 per tooth. Despite being the more expensive option, porcelain veneers look more natural and are more durable than composites, and will typically last much longer. You can expect them to last 10-15 years with proper care, so the cost of porcelain veneers is often worthwhile.

If you break down costs by how often you would have to replace/repair composite verse porcelain though, the cost could come out even over time.

Designing Your Beautiful Veneers

Careful planning is provided along with extensive discussions to understand our patients expectations.

We work closely with our dental technicians who fabricate the veneers following to the approved smile design.

Our patients have the opportunity of visualizing what the veneers could look like and approve the appearance before any irreversible treatment is carried out.

We use wax ups on the models of the teeth which are then transferred to the mouth with a mock up made with temporary material that allows us and most importantly the patient, to see what the ideal size, shape and position is necessary. It also allows us to check the bite and make sure the final veneers need minimal adjustments.

Frequently Asked Questions About Costs of Veneers

Porcelain veneers are very thin covers that are put on top of your natural teeth to change the shape, size and color of the teeth. The material is shaped to bond to the front of your teeth, and as a result, enhances the shape and colour of teeth, to close gaps and improve alignment.

The overall purpose for veneers is to improve the appearance of a person’s smile to make them appear younger, healthier and more attractive. 

Porcelain is the most popular material at ArtSmiles. It gives a natural long-lasting look, which matches your natural teeth colour. It is highly resistant to staining and discolouring, which makes it better than other materials. 

What are the Advantages of composite veneers ?

  • Composite veneers can be accomplished in a single visit. Porcelain veneers are fabricated in a dental laboratory and therefore require at least two visits.
  •  While this is not a general rule, composite veneers need less tooth preparation.
  •  Composite veneers are more affordable; the cost is usually about half that of porcelain veneers.

What are the Disadvantages of composite veneers ?

  • Composite veneers are not as durable as porcelain veneers and more maintenance is required as they are more likely to chip.
  • Composite veneers tend to stain more easily (you might consider this especially if you smoke or drink coffee or red wine). Here is the reason: composite is a porous resin while porcelain is glazed and impervious.

What are the Advantages of porcelain veneers ?

  • Porcelain has a translucent, light-reflective quality similar to tooth enamel; as a result, it can mimic natural teeth in a way which is not possible to achieve with any other dental material.
  • Porcelain is colour stable because there is a glaze placed on the outside which makes it extremely resistant to staining.
  • Porcelain veneers are very durable and they rarely chip.

What are the Disadvantages of porcelain veneers ?

  • Porcelain veneers are fabricated in a dental laboratory and therefore require at least two visits.
  • Porcelain veneers are more expensive than composite veneers as their placement requires more time, expertise and resources.
  • Porcelain veneers cannot be repaired. If they break, porcelain veneers must be replaced.

With cosmetic dentistry you absolutely get what you pay for. It’s not unheard of to see people hocking $800 veneers, and it’s unfortunate how many times we’ve had to remove those cheap veneers because they’re uncomfortable, not cosmetically pleasing, or just downright unhealthy. Additionally, a lot of the preparations for those cheap veneers have removed way too much tooth structure because of the skill level and education of that dentist. The old adage is true – you get what you pay for.

In Australia, a Composite Veneer varies from $300 and $600, and the cost of each Ceramic Veneer varies from $660 to $1,825.

The cost of getting veneers can vary depending on the number of veneers, scale of treatment required as well as the type of veneers that you get. Our experts will recommend a treatment option best suited to you and give you an estimate of the price and payment options during your free consultation visit.

We offer a number of dental financing options that enable you to pay over time. This way, you can start enjoying your veneers as soon as they are placed. We accept a wide range of payment methods and have plenty of flexible pay later financial options including Afterpay, TLC, Humm and Access My Super.

Our current fee for porcelain veneers starts at $1,209 per tooth. A full breakdown of the cost – along with a comprehensive treatment plan – will be provided during your initial consultation.

Prices for dental veneers vary from clinic to clinic but, here at ArtSmiles, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional service at a competitive rate. When you take into account our vast level of experience and the fact that we expect our cosmetic dental veneers to last between 10- 15 years, our prices really do reflect excellent value for money.

With a wide range of choices available, including porcelain or composite veneers and replacement veneers – there’s sure to be an option to suit both your requirements and your budget.

Finance packages are available, and we also offer discounts for multiple veneers (6-20 teeth). 

Yes.

Your smile affects your whole appearance. Being unhappy or self-conscious about how it looks can have a real impact on your self-confidence. Here at ArtSmiles, we strive to make sure we offer competitive rates for all our services, but we understand that paying for cosmetic dental treatment can be a stretch on finances – we also don’t think you should have to wait! To help, we offer personalised finance plans, bringing you one step closer to your dream smile.

Applying for finance for our cosmetic dentistry procedures is quick and easy.  To discuss your veneers on finance options in more detail, please call 07 5588-3677 or email contact@artsmiles.com.au

Although many of our patients opt for dental veneers on just the most visible teeth, we also have a number of clients who are looking to get a full set of veneers fitted. If you’re considering this as an option, then you will need to decide on what type of veneers to have, as this will have a direct impact on the amount you pay. For instance, we only work with the highest quality porcelain veneers as these can last for 15 years or more, look natural and offer durable results. As a result, clients can expect to pay more than they would for other veneer alternatives such as composite veneers which are of much lower quality, and don’t last anywhere near as long.

If you’re looking for a full mouth of veneers, get in touch with us today and we can provide a bespoke quote for you.

So, are veneers covered by dental insurance? Like most topics involving insurance, the answer is “that depends on your coverage”. There are two major things to consider here.

First, most insurance plans cover medically necessary procedures. In general, medical treatments are those used to diagnose or treat a medical condition. For example, most locations do not consider overbites to be medical conditions, even though they are dental conditions.

Even if a dental insurance plan doesn’t cover a medical procedure, other insurance plans usually will.

Second, veneers are generally cosmetic. This is why dental insurance doesn’t typically cover them. If you only want them to whiten your smile or fix slightly crooked teeth, that’s not enough to satisfy the insurance companies, and they’ll ask you to pay for it yourself.

The good news is that dental veneers are relatively affordable even without insurance. Depending on your provider, veneers could cost as little as a few hundred dollars per tooth. Most dentists accept various payment plans, so you can pay off your procedure in instalments rather than all at once.

So, are veneers covered by dental insurance under your plan? The best way to find out is to contact your insurance provider. Some higher-quality plans do include cosmetic procedures, so you should check with your insurance provider instead of making any assumptions.

Dental veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment that a person ‘chooses’ to have rather than ‘needs’ to have. This means that it is not covered by Medicare. While some government-funded schemes assist eligible people with the cost of dental treatment, porcelain veneers are unlikely to be covered.

Much of the cost of veneers is to cover the high quality materials used in manufacturing your veneers. At ArtSmiles we work closer with the best master ceramists to create a personalised smile makeover.

Each individual veneer is custom-made from your 3D scan in a shade chosen by you. This highly individualised experience cannot be automated to save costs. The placement procedure is also a time consuming and delicate process, with many people involved. We also allow as many revisions as needed to achieve the desired result.

Dental Veneers are more expensive than other procedures because they require unique materials, highly specialized tools and advanced procedures. The experienced dentist needs custom moulding tools, which only dentists who underwent extensive training can use.

The cosmetic dentist must be well trained before providing dental veneer treatments to patients who want healthier looking teeth without going through complicated surgeries.

Veneers are generally placed by cosmetic dentists rather than general dentists. Moreover, since it’s considered cosmetic dentistry rather than a medical procedure, your private health insurance may not cover any of the cost, which can be stressful for people with a tight budget.
