Veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment that have rapidly grown in popularity in just the past couple of years. For people with crooked, discoloured, worn, or chipped teeth, veneers can be life changing. There are multiple options to choose from when thinking about veneers, each with a different price point – and slightly varying results.
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, you might be considering getting veneers. It’s a big decision to make, and then you have to think about the costs involved. Your dentist will be able to advise you on the best way to achieve the smile you’re looking for, taking into account your budget along the way.
So, how much are veneers in Manchester? We’ll compare the costs in this guide to different types of veneers and how much they are.
Composite veneers are the cheapest treatment option if you’re definitely set on getting veneers. Composite veneers start from £380 per tooth, and last around 5 to 7 years when looked after correctly.
The composite resin can stain, so you might want to avoid coffee, red wine, and smoking. They’re also not as durable as porcelain, so you might need visits to the dentist if they do eventually chip or wear down. Despite this, they’re the quickest option for transforming your teeth. Composite veneers can be applied in just one appointment!
Composite veneers use a resin material, shaped carefully by hand as your dentist works to sculpt the material over your entire teeth. It’s not usually an invasive process, and your natural teeth won’t need altering beforehand unless you have a misaligned smile.
Porcelain veneers are the more premium option. Due to the level of dental artistry and the materials involved, porcelain veneers start from £850 per tooth.
Porcelain veneers are cost-effective as they’re the most durable option for veneers. Done right, they should last 10 to 15 years with a consistent dental hygiene routine and check ups. They are great for maintaining a consistent smile over the years, as porcelain is unlikely to stain.
Porcelain veneers also offer a more natural look than composite veneers do, since porcelain has similar aesthetic qualities to our natural teeth. It’s slightly transparent, like bone, so it’s harder to tell when someone has porcelain veneers. If you’re looking for a natural finish, porcelain veneers are an ideal option.
Many dental surgeries offer financing options on their more costly treatments. At Ringway Dental, we offer a financing option with 0% interest up to 36 months. This has helped many of our patients achieve the smiles they’ve dreamed of, while being able to budget effectively and spread the cost. You can see if you’re eligible for our financing option at Ringway Dental now, and it only takes 2 minutes to apply.
If the cost of veneers still seems a bit much for your budget, you could also consider cheaper alternatives to veneers.
There are a couple of alternatives to veneers that can uplift your smile equally as effectively. Composite bonding uses the same material as composite veneers, but doesn’t cover the entire tooth. Dental crowns are another option if they are indicated clinically.
Composite bonding is less invasive than the process involved with getting veneers. It’s a popular alternative, as composite bonding treatments can enhance your teeth with a simple procedure. It’s a more subtle looking treatment than veneers, as it works around the edges of the teeth to even out your smile.
Our composite bonding treatments start from £250.00 per tooth, making them a much more affordable option in comparison to veneers. Despite the cheaper price point, they’re very similar procedures that often have an equally as impressive impact.
Dental crowns are used to fix damaged teeth, improving the appearance of your smile. Made using various materials including precious metals like gold, or porcelain, dental crowns offer the freedom to opt for the final look you’re going for. Dental crowns are great for really damaged teeth. You might only need one tooth restoring with a crown, while other treatments can work in conjunction to really elevate your appearance.
Crown treatments only require two appointments, so they can be completed relatively quickly. You might have a 2-week wait while your crown is prepared in our specialist lab. After this, you’ll be booked in for your fitting appointment. This can be a slightly more invasive procedure, as we’ll have to remove any decayed materials before your crown is cemented in place. You might feel some sensitivity for up to a week after your appointment.
Our dental crown treatments are available from £650.00. However, they last up to 15 years with decent care and dental upkeep. They’re also ideal for fixing and restoring damaged teeth, so you’re investing in your long-term dental health when you opt for a dental crown treatment.
Weighing up the pros and cons of each veneer treatment (and the alternatives to veneers), it really all comes down to the results you’re looking for – and the amount you’re prepared to spend on your smile. Here’s a quick overview of how much veneers cost.
Porcelain veneers are the most expensive from £850 per tooth. They last around 10 to 15 years, and offer durability with a natural-looking effect. Composite veneers are cheaper from £380 per tooth, though they’re less durable and don’t look as natural.
Composite bonding is a great alternative to composite veneers. From £250 per tooth, this alternative works if your teeth require less re-sculpting. Dental crowns are another alternative, but are usually best for restoring very damaged or teeth. Dental crowns cost from £650 and can be used alongside other treatments like a root canal (if needed) to optimise dental health and restore your smile.
