Cost VS Cosmetic Dentistry: What’s Right for Me?
While veneers are one of our most popular services, it’s important to keep in mind that there are plenty of cosmetic treatments to choose from. We’re proud to offer a variety of cosmetic services at different price points to help you achieve exactly what you’re looking for with your smile. Many other cosmetic treatments have a lower price tag than veneers, but they also don’t offer the same stunning, comprehensive results! Let’s review how the cost of other cosmetic procedures compares to that of veneers:
- Teeth Whitening – If you’re looking for a quick but noticeable boost to your pearly whites, teeth whitening is an excellent option. This cost-effective treatment can remove years of stains from your teeth, but naturally won’t change the shape or size of your teeth.
- Cosmetic Dental Bonding – Cosmetic dental bonding is a versatile treatment that can address many of the same issues that veneers can. Though it comes at a lower cost, it can only be used on minor flaws and will need to be touched up every few years.
- Invisalign – Invisalign can be quite expensive compared to other cosmetic services, but the results are well-worth it for patients with moderate orthodontic issues. However, if you only have minor misalignment, you may be able to get veneers as “instant orthodontics” instead!
- Gum Recontouring – This mid-range procedure can reveal your smile’s natural beauty without touching your teeth! Gum recontouring can make your teeth look longer by removing the excess tissue around them, but it won’t actually change the shape of your teeth.
- Veneers – Though veneers are by no means the least expensive cosmetic treatment, they offer practically unmatched results. This comprehensive solution can redesign the size, shape, and color of one or more teeth in just a few quick and easy appointments.

And while you look forward to the positive changes this cosmetic treatment brings, you probably have several questions about the process and what life will be like once your veneers are in place. This is why our team is here to answer your questions and provide as much clarity as possible.
Can you whiten veneers?
No, it is impossible to whiten veneers. The reason is that they are not made of the same porous material and natural tooth enamel. They cannot absorb stains like normal teeth, which is a good thing. However, what you need to be aware of is that should staining occur over time, the only way to fix it is to have them re-shaded or replaced. This is why it’s not uncommon for a cosmetic dentist to recommend teeth whitening before receiving veneers.
By pursuing professional teeth whitening, you ensure that all of your visible teeth are the same color. When receiving your veneers, their shade will match your newer, brighter smile.
What happens to teeth underneath veneers?
Many fall victim to the misconception that veneers prevent tooth decay and cavities. This is simply not true. Veneers only cover the front surfaces of teeth, leaving the backsides exposed. As a result, it is possible to develop tooth decay and cavities while wearing veneers. This is why we strongly recommend that you maintain a good oral hygiene routine. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing are essential if you want to keep your veneers in place as long as possible.
Should you develop a serious oral health problem while wearing your customized restorations, you’ll be at risk of spending more money to have them removed before undergoing treatment to fix the problem. You’ll then need to have them replaced, as veneers are considered a semi-permanent cosmetic solution.
Can I drink coffee with veneers?
You do have the option to drink coffee while wearing your veneers, but it is strongly recommended that you do it in moderation. Daily coffee drinking or sipping on it throughout the day is discouraged simply because your veneers can become discolored over time. Although not as likely to stain as real teeth, they are susceptible if exposed too often.
If you need to have your morning cup of coffee, use a straw, as this will limit the amount of exposure between your veneers and the dark-colored liquid.
Will dental insurance cover veneer treatment?
It is highly unlikely that your dental insurance company will agree to cover your veneer treatment. Because it is deemed a cosmetic procedure, they will not view it as medically necessary, so they’ll refuse to pay. However, there are alternative options to make veneers affordable. At Huckabee Dental, we offer flexible financing through CareCredit and an in-house membership plan that grants discounts on available services to eligible members.
