Porcelain Veneers – Weighing Price Against Value
If you’ve been shopping around and are wondering what the cost of dental veneers is, you’ve probably noticed that the quoted cost of the veneers can vary a great deal. In Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, CA, prices for porcelain veneers can range from $1,000 per tooth to $3,500 per tooth depending on where you go. You may also hear that some dentists only want you to do 4 or 6 dental veneers for your smile makeover, and others think that you need 10 or 12 teeth done.
With these variables, it can be hard to accurately compare quotes from different cosmetic dentists on the ranges in cost of dental veneers. The key is to understand the value of what you are paying for. You must always ask the following questions:
Two of the biggest factors that impact the cost of porcelain veneers are 1) the materials that are used and 2) the skill, training and experience of the specialist doing the work.
As one of the top veneers dentists in Los Angeles & Beverly Hills, Dr. Maddahi has tested and used all types of dental veneers during the past 25 years. He selects the right material for each tooth based on the individual needs of the person involved. This is important because some people can be allergic to certain types of dental materials. Beyond that, some types of dental veneers are better for fixing crooked teeth, while others are better for adding volume to a smile.
It is not uncommon for Dr. Maddahi to use two or more different types of veneers for the same person to make sure they get the exact right look and feel for their mouth, while of course ensuring that the color is perfect throughout.
As for skill and experience, Dr. Maddahi has placed thousands of porcelain veneers for his patients, including makeovers done on camera for shows such as Extreme Makeover. Having worked under these conditions, he knows that there is no margin for error. He also knows what it takes to do it right the first time and create a smile that will last for years to come.
Consider the value of a good smile in your life. Having a smile you can be proud of can give you a renewed confidence in yourself and your appearance. People are likely to consider that you are more attractive, younger-looking, and even smarter or more successful because you have taken excellent care of your smile. Our patients often view a smile makeover as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – we do too. You’ll want to be sure that you get dental veneers made of high-quality material, that fit comfortably and perfectly, and that transform your smile in exactly the way that you envision.
High-quality dental work can be costly, but the greatest costs come from having to do the work more than once. We see patients every week who have started or completed treatment elsewhere, and who end up coming here to get the work repaired or re-done.
When considering cosmetic work such as porcelain veneers, the quality and longevity of the work performed is of the utmost importance. Here at Dr. Maddahi’s office in Los Angeles, we encourage our patients not to compromise when it comes to getting the high-quality dental care they deserve.
Beverly Hills Dentist, Dr. Maddahi offers a unique one-year guarantee on porcelain veneers. This means you’ll have the chance to live with your veneers for 12 months, to make sure they’re absolutely perfect, and you won’t have to worry about making costly changes or repairs, if for any reason you are unhappy with them.
