Understanding the Cost of Porcelain Veneers
At Nordhus Dentistry in Wichita, KS, we are pleased to offer porcelain veneers for patients who are considering enhancing their smiles. This minimally-invasive cosmetic dentistry treatment is an excellent option to enhance the appearance of your smile. The total cost of porcelain veneers depends on multiple factors, including the extent of treatment required, the technology used, and the expertise of your doctor. Dr. Byron J. Nordhus can help you determine the most appropriate treatment for your goals during a comprehensive evaluation in our office.
Dramatic Aesthetic Results
Porcelain veneers can offer an immediate enhancement to the appearance of your smile. These thin porcelain shells are designed to fit over the front surface of your teeth to help improve their appearance by concealing any imperfections in color, shape, size, and minor misalignment.
The cost of porcelain veneers may be higher than other cosmetic treatments, such as teeth whitening or dental bonding, but can also provide a much more dramatic enhancement. The results from veneers treatment will also last much longer than those of other procedures.
Factors Affecting the Total Cost of Veneers
The materials and techniques used in your treatment can affect the total cost. Dental porcelain is a high-quality material that is used for its superior durability and natural appearance. Crafting these porcelain shells to the precise specifications of your teeth is a highly involved process that ensures a comfortable fit and beautiful appearance.

The total cost of veneers will also vary depending on the number of teeth you wish to enhance. Some patients may only wish to change the appearance of two teeth, such as the upper canines, while other patients choose to add veneers to all the teeth that are visible when they smile.
Although we can perform veneer treatment using only local anesthesia, we also offer different sedative options to ensure all of our patients comfort during the procedure. For those who suffer from dental anxiety or phobia, we can provide oral conscious or intravenous sedation, which can also increase the total cost of your treatment.
Paying for Your Veneers
As an elective cosmetic procedure, porcelain veneers are not typically covered by dental insurance, as they are not considered a medical necessity. However, at Nordhus Dentistry we want all our patients to be able to enhance their smiles on any budget, so we offer financing options to help make veneers more affordable. We are a proud partner of CareCredit, which allows patients to pay for their procedures over time.
If you decide that porcelain veneers are not ideal for your lifestyle, we also offer a number of other cosmetic alternatives that can help you achieve stunning results, such as dental bonding, whitening, laser gum reshaping, tooth-colored fillings, and Invisalign®.
