Porcelain Veneers Costs and Payment Options
By Patrick Casey on December 18, 2012
At our dental practice in Montreal, cosmetic dentist Patrick Casey and his father and colleague Charles are proud to offer porcelain veneers of the most surpassing quality. Porcelain veneers are the most lifelike and transformative of the many fine cosmetic dentistry treatments available. The most dramatic smile makeovers generally feature porcelain veneers as their cornerstone.
While porcelain veneers may be responsible for many a “Hollywood smile,” that does not mean you have to be a famous celebrity to afford them. At Smile Montreal, we work with our patients to create treatment plans that work with their budgets. Don’t deprive yourself of the smile you deserve simply because you think you can’t afford it. You may be surprised by how accessible an extraordinary smile is, regardless of your income.
What Are Porcelain Veneers and What Makes Them So Great?
At our cosmetic dentistry practice in Montreal, porcelain veneers are custom crafted from the finest medical-grade porcelain to fit over the front surfaces of teeth affected by stains, chips, cracks, and flaws in shape and length. Once in place, porcelain veneers look incredibly realistic, blending seamlessly into the patient’s newly rejuvenated smile. This is because porcelain, like natural tooth enamel, is translucent. This means that some light is allowed to pass through its surface, rather than simply reflecting off of it.
Porcelain veneers are also highly stain resistant and can last for a decade or longer with proper oral hygiene. Even the most cosmetically flawed teeth can be transformed in an instant with porcelain veneers.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?
At Smile Montreal, porcelain veneers costs vary. Some people require a single veneer while others need multiple veneers as part of a more comprehensive smile makeover. Many patients elect to combine porcelain veneers with other treatments, such as teeth whitening and porcelain crowns. We make it a point never to discuss the cost of porcelain veneers before meeting with a patient and having the opportunity to evaluate his or her teeth. It is not possible even to estimate the cost of treatment without first getting to know a person and discussing his or her goals for treatment.
That said, it should be noted that there are alternatives to porcelain veneers that may be more cost effective for some patients. The most common alternative is dental bonding. Dental bonding is also effective at concealing cosmetic flaws; however, the bonding material is not translucent. The results are still aesthetically pleasing and very natural looking, if not quite as remarkable as the results generally achieved with porcelain veneers.
Financing Your Treatment
Many patients who wish to undergo treatment with porcelain veneers elect to finance their treatment. Medicard is Canada’s premier elective healthcare financing company. Medicard offers low interest rates with no down payment and no collateral. If approved, you can immediately finance your porcelain veneers and then make low monthly payments to Medicard. Most patients are approved, and you can decide whether to finance part or all of your treatment.
