Knoxville area residents ask about the cost of porcelain veneers
A popular cosmetic treatment requested at Sequoyah Dental Arts in Knoxville, Tennessee is that of porcelain veneers. These restorations are commonly used to cover imperfections of the smile. However, patients are often concerned about the cost of treatment.
What do porcelain veneers cost?
There are a variety of considerations that affect the cost of fabricating and bonding porcelain veneers. Complexity of design varies. Some patients require substantial preparation before veneers can be placed. Patients with dental insurance may receive some reimbursement under their plans, resulting in a lower cost. Those who require additional procedures will have higher overall expense. When giving patients an idea of the cost of treatment, the dentist must first see the individual and perform a thorough evaluation.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are ceramic facings that dentists can use to disguise flaws in the patient’s teeth, for improved smile aesthetics. This is an elective procedure that is typically done to enhance the appearance of the smile; not to address dental health concerns. Because of this, many dental insurance policies do not provide coverage for veneers. However, our front office staff is happy to assist in getting an estimate of coverage to determine if patients can reduce their out-of-pocket costs.
Alternatives to veneers
The primary alternative to porcelain veneers is dental bonding. Composite resin material is applied to teeth and shaped, before being hardened and polished to replicate natural tooth enamel. Bonding is relatively quick and economical.
