What are veneers?
The English term veneers means facade or veneer. A veneer consists of ceramic or a plastic-ceramic mixture. The veneers are permanently glued to the visible side of your front teeth at the dentist. This simply hides your original discoloration or misaligned teeth. Since every tooth and smile is different, veneers are made individually at the dentist.
That is what veneers cost
Since veneers are not a medically necessary treatment, but an aesthetic option, there is usually no cost coverage by statutory health insurance or private insurers. Even if you have supplementary dental insurance, this cosmetic treatment is not always covered.
|Conventional veneers||€ 900 to € 1,500 per tooth|
|Lumineers / Non-Prep Veneers||€ 700 to € 1,000 per aperture|
|Veneers-to-go / instant veneers||€ 300 to € 400 per aperture|
Are the veneers costs covered by health insurance?
As a rule, the cost of veneers is not covered by your health insurance. The health insurance often regards the treatment as a cosmetic procedure. The aim is usually to beautify the front teeth or a single front tooth.
Treatment with a veneer is therefore a purely private service with no cost subsidy from the health insurance company.
Veneers costs: It all depends on the procedure
The cost of veneers is variable and varies in the type of procedure used.
Your dentist will decide which veneer procedure is used, depending on:
In addition, the materials used (ceramic, ceramic-plastic mixture) reduce or increase the costs for your veneers.
First procedure: conventional veneers
With conventional veneers, the dentist usually removes a certain layer (approx. 1mm) of the substance from the tooth of the upper jaw in order to give you a flawlessly white smile. A grinding of the teeth (preparation) in the lower jaw is less common. Because the lower jaw plays a subordinate role in the cosmetic desire for straight, white teeth.
This is followed by an impression of the prepared teeth and the production of the veneer in the laboratory. Your dentist will then stick the veneer permanently to your previously ground tooth with a special adhesive.
Second method: Non-Prep Veneers / Lumineers
If your visible tooth is minimal, superficial and light-colored, more modern non-prep veneers, also called Lumineers, are used. As the name suggests, your teeth are not prepared during this procedure, i.e. they are not ground down. After taking an impression, the dental technician forms the special ceramic for your teeth in the dental laboratory. Your dentist will then stick the Lumineers permanently to your teeth with a special adhesive.
These non-prep shells are even thinner (<0.3 mm) veneers than conventional veneers.This difference is reflected in a slightly higher cost.
Third method: veneers-to-go / instant veneers
The innovative procedure for instant veneers enables an adjustment in just one session. The dentist offers you instant veneers for your defective front teeth at relatively low costs.
Standardized veneer templates are adapted to your discolored front teeth or misaligned teeth in a one-time dentist session. This eliminates the costs for the laboratory and dental technician, which lowers the price of your new, beautiful smile.
