What are Veneers?

Veneers are very thin (0.3 to 1.0 millimeters) and transparent pieces of porcelain that are placed on top of a tooth’s enamel and look almost indistinguishable from the surface of a real tooth. Veneers consist of a very durable ceramic material that can also resist virtually any tooth discoloration due to its even and smooth surface.

Though veneers are proven options to correct tooth misalignments, most dentists would not recommend them to patients to whom one or more of the following apply:

* Diseased/damaged teeth and/or gums

* Nightly tooth grinding

* Strongly discolored teeth or teeth that have undergone a root canal treatment (crowns and bridges made out of metal or porcelain are better alternatives in these cases)

* Desire for brighter/whiter teeth (dental bleaching would be a more advisable first option)

In general, veneer placement requires 2 appointments:

Appointment 1: Following a detailed examination of a patient’s teeth, the dentist makes dental imprints, selects an optimal veneer color with the patient, and sends this information to the dental lab for the manufacturing of the custom-fitted porcelain veneers. Sometimes, it is necessary for the dentist to remove up to 1.0 millimeters of dental enamel to ensure the accuracy of the dental imprints. In such cases, the patient receives temporary veneers to protect the polished teeth until the second appointment.  

Appointment 2: The temporary veneers are removed and replaced by the finished permanent ones from the dental lab. Once the permanent porcelain veneers are placed on the teeth, they can only be removed via abrasion. Veneer placement usually takes up to 30 minutes per tooth.

The newest kind of veneer is the so-called “Non-Prep” or “Non-Invasive” veneer that can be placed on a tooth without the removal of any dental enamel. This new veneer type is merely 0.2 millimeters thick and can be installed more quickly which significantly lowers its cost (by up to 80%). On average, the durability of veneers lies between 5 and 15 years.  

When do I need veneers?

In most cases (90%+), veneers are used for purely cosmetic purposes such as to cover significant tooth discolorations or to correct visible tooth misalignments. For cosmetic purposes, veneers are usually placed along the so-called “smile line” (between the left and the right canine teeth) to ensure an even and symmetrical smile.

Sometimes, however, a medical reason requiring the use of veneers can arise – for example the need to repair a chipped or broken tooth. In such cases, veneers can be placed on individual teeth as well in order to, for example, correct a broken tooth edge.

How much do veneers cost?

While the costs associated with veneer manufacture and placement depend strongly on the amount of dentist effort required and on the quality of materials used, the following pricing guidelines can provide a solid estimate:

* Conventional Veneer: € 500 - 1.000 per tooth

* Non-Prep Veneer: € 600 - 900 per tooth
