The Cost of Lumineers

Lumineers® are an excellent option for patients who want to address chips, cracks, or other cosmetic flaws in their smile. These ultra thin, minimal prep porcelain veneers can dramatically enhance your smile without altering the structure of your teeth. On average, Lumineers cost between $800 and $2,000 per tooth. The price of your treatment will depend on a variety of factors, including the complexity and extent of your procedure, your dentist’s experience, and your geographical location.

The cost of treatment with Lumineers can vary dramatically based on the specifics of your case. 

Extent of Treatment

One major factor that affects how much your Lumineers will cost is how many teeth you want to treat. Placing a veneer on a single tooth is a much less expensive procedure than restoring all of your front teeth. The number of veneers you need will depend on your goals and your budget. Your dentist can make recommendations based on your desired results.

Treatment Complexity

Lumineers are a versatile treatment that can address a range of cosmetic issues, from minor chips to gaps and crooked teeth. When veneers are used to address more straightforward concerns such as discoloration, they will likely cost less than if they are used to conceal more complex issues. In addition, if you have underlying health issues like periodontal disease, you will need to undergo preliminary treatment. Additional procedures can increase your final treatment cost.

On average, Lumineers cost between $800 and $2,000 per tooth.

Lab Fees

In general, lab fees for Lumineers are slightly more expensive than traditional veneers. This price difference is due to the complex fabrication methods required to create ultra thin porcelain shells that can withstand daily wear and tear. However, the design of Lumineers allows your dentist to place them without making significant alterations to your teeth, saving you on tooth reshaping costs and anesthesia fees. 

Dentist Experience

As with all dentistry procedures, the skill and reputation of your dentist can affect your treatment price. Typically, more experienced practitioners will charge more for their procedures. However, choosing a dentist who has experience placing Lumineers can save you money in the future. Correct placement can help you avoid issues with your bite as well as future repair and replacement costs. You should always choose a reputable dentist for your cosmetic dentistry treatments. 

Practice Location

Your geographical location can also affect the overall cost of your treatment. In general, dental procedures cost more in major cities, especially urban areas on either coast. Higher overhead in these areas means dentists must charge more to maintain their practices. 

Why Invest in Lumineers

While treatment with Lumineers tends to cost slightly more than that of traditional porcelain veneers, it offers a unique set of advantages which can make the investment worthwhile. Since your dentist can place Lumineers without altering the structure of your teeth, the treatment is completely reversible. If your Lumineers break or you decide you no longer want them, your dentist can remove them without having to place a crown to protect the tooth from sensitivity. In addition, Lumineers can last up to 20 years, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of your new smile for years to come.
