Cosmetic Dentist London
Veneers are a very popular cosmetic dental treatment, often used to improve the appearance of your visible teeth. A veneer is a small shell made of either porcelain or ceramic material, which covers the front surface of a tooth in order to change the size, shape and colour of the underlying tooth. Veneers coming in two types – porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Porcelain veneers are made of, as the name suggests, porcelain material, whereas composite veneers are made from composite resin material. Each type of veneer has its own advantages; we have discussed these in more detail in one of our other articles. In this article, we focus on the cost of different types of veneers, especially In London.
How much do Veneers Cost in London?
Cosmetic dentistry procedures no longer cost thousands and thousands of pounds. They have become increasingly more affordable as a result of new advances in cosmetic procedures and dental technology over the last many years. New dental tools are now available to cosmetic dentists, assisting them in speeding up treatment times; cosmetic dental procedures have come down in cost as well as a result. Veneers are a good example of how new dental techniques have led to a drop in cost of treatment. For example, composite veneers can cost as little as £450 per tooth to fix chips and make changes to the shape of a tooth. As the complexity of the change that’s required to the shape and size of the tooth increase, the cost of composite veneers can increase as well. Porcelain veneers typically cost more than composite veneers. The cost of porcelain veneers usually starts from £600 per tooth in London, going up to £800-£900 per tooth as well. The cost of dental veneers depends on mostly three factors. The first factor is the complexity of the change you are wanting to make to your smile. If you are looking to make major changes to your smile, the size and shape of individual teeth, the time it takes to complete the procedure will be longer. If the procedure takes longer, the cosmetic dentist needs to spend more time making the cosmetic changes, which in turn leads to a higher cost of treatment for the patient. The second factor that impacts the cost of the veneer procedure is the type of veneer you choose to have. Porcelain veneers usually cost more as compared to composite veneers. If you want to make changes to more teeth, the cost of the veneers will be more as well. The third factor driving the cost of veneers and other cosmetic treatments is the actual cosmetic dentist with whom you decide to take up treatment. Cost structures for cosmetic procedures such as veneers at different cosmetic dentists are typically quite different, often depending on what area of cosmetic dentistry the cosmetic dentist focuses on. Certain cosmetic dentists have a focus on porcelain veneers; they can therefore offer lower costs and larger discounts to their patients as a result of the high volume of porcelain veneer procedures they undertake. Other cosmetic dentists are often focused on composite veneers and composite bonding; these cosmetic dentists will often be able to offer composite veneers and bonding procedures at much lower costs. It is therefore useful to determine what area of cosmetic dentistry a cosmetic dentist focuses on and try to take up treatment from the dentist for a procedure that is part their focus area. More often than not, you will likely obtaining better pricing and costs for veneers and other cosmetic dental treatments by using this approach.
