Dental veneers are possibly the best procedure in cosmetic dentistry. They look beautiful and natural, indistinguishable from natural teeth. They can do many things at once: straighten teeth, brighten teeth, lengthen teeth, and close gaps between teeth. Plus, they’re highly durable, lasting ten, even twenty years.
But for many people, the drawback is that veneers are relatively expensive. People may think that veneers won’t fit in their budget, but that’s not necessarily the case. Here are some tips for fitting veneers in your budget.
Get Only the Veneers You Need
Veneers are very flexible, as we noted above. They can do many things, and they can be used to treat just one tooth, your entire smile, and everything in between.
When you decide you want to remake your smile, you might immediately jump to the idea of getting a full set of veneers, but that isn’t always necessary. If you really have just one or a few teeth that look unattractive, veneers can be used on just those teeth to give you a beautiful smile.
Dislike your peg laterals? Veneers can give you attractive laterals. Unhappy because of a gap in your smile? Two veneers are all it takes to close the gap. Have a rotated snaggletooth? A single veneer can fix that.
And because veneers can look incredibly natural, they can be made to blend in perfectly with your other teeth. No one will be able to tell which teeth are veneered.
But what if you really are looking for a full smile makeover? In that case, you should consider our flexible payment options, including financing with CareCredit.
CareCredit financing allows you to schedule payments according to your budget. This includes interest-free payment plans. The payments are relatively large, but the terms are short and, as it says, there’s no interest if you make the payments on time. But you can also consider the longer-term financing that lets you make smaller payments over a longer period of time. This makes it easier to fit the payments into your budget and get your smile makeover now.
Always Invest in Quality Veneers
If you are having trouble fitting veneers in your budget, you might be tempted to consider cheap veneers that you see advertised online or even at some local dentists. But these veneers are often not worth. No matter how cheap they are, they’re often a bad buy at any price.
Many cheap veneers don’t look good at all. If they’re not going to make your smile look better, these veneers are just a complete waste of money. You’re better off putting that money away and saving for better veneers in the future.
Second, cheap veneers aren’t going to last as long. They might seem cheap now, but when you add up the cost of the multiple sets you’ll need to buy to maintain your smile, they’re likely much more expensive. Factor in the inconvenience of having to get your veneers replaced often and the embarrassment of chipped or loose veneers, and you’ll see that it’s better to just finance higher quality veneers.
Plus, some dentists may offer veneers at a low price because they don’t have experience placing them. Their low cost conceals the fact that you’re more likely to end up with a poor result, including complications that can permanently impact your smile. Never work with a dentist whose experience and expertise doesn’t give you full confidence in their ability to perform your procedure.
