How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?
Porcelain veneers are an investment in your smile. The cost varies depending on a variety of factors, including the type of veneer, how many teeth you want to treat, and any other treatments you opt for. At our Kenilworth, IL, practice, our porcelain veneers cost about $1,500 per tooth. Dr. Art Carpenter and Dr. Sejal Jobalia offer both traditional and minimal-prep veneers, allowing us to find the solution most suited to your needs. During your initial consultation, our doctors can examine your teeth and design a treatment plan customized to your aesthetic goals and provide a cost estimate.
What Factors Affect the Cost of Veneers?
A wide range of factors can impact the final cost of your treatment.
Your Choice of Dentist
One of the main influences on the cost of your treatment is the dentist you choose. Typically, dentists with more experience charge more for porcelain veneers. However, it is important to keep in mind that veneer placement is a delicate and often permanent procedure which requires an advanced understanding of both cosmetic dentistry and the mechanics of your smile. Dr. Carpenter and Dr. Jobalia have spent many years performing cosmetic treatments and can ensure the placement of your veneers enhances the appearance of your smile while maintaining your oral health.
Type of Veneer
At our practice, we offer both traditional and minimal-prep veneers. The different materials used in each type of veneer affects the price of treatment. Traditional veneers are typically made with dental ceramic, which can realistically mimic the properties of natural teeth. Minimal-prep veneers are made with a thinner material, allowing Dr. Carpenter or Jobalia to place them without altering the structure of your teeth. The differences in price between these two material types can affect your final treatment cost.

Extent of Treatment
Some patients only want to change the appearance of a single tooth, while others want to enhance their entire smile. Typically, the more veneers we place, the higher the final cost of treatment.
Combining with Other Procedures
Porcelain veneers can dramatically enhance the appearance of your smile. However, in some cases, patients wish to enhance their results by adding other procedures into their treatment plans. At our practice, we can include veneers as part of a personalized smile makeover plan to address a wide range of cosmetic issues. Two of treatments most commonly combined with veneers are teeth whitening and gum contouring.
Invest in a Beautiful Smile
Porcelain veneers can help you feel confident about your smile, boosting your overall self-esteem. However, since veneers are a cosmetic procedure, they are generally not covered by insurance. Paying out of pocket for cosmetic treatment can feel out of reach for some patients. At our practice, we offer flexible, affordable third-party financing through CareCredit®. You can discuss your payment and financing options with our team during your initial consultation.

We have been coming to Dr. Carpenter for several years now after seeing dentists that lacked good patient relationships. Dr. Carpenter is patient with those who fear going to the dentist (that's me), explains what needs to be done and provides different options for treatment. Worth the trek from the city!Kelly B.
