Worried about high cost of dental cosmetics? Porcelain Veneers Abroad can help you save a lot of money.
Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that hide any tooth defect. Tetracycline stains, chipped tooth or if there is a gaps between your front teeth, all these can be cosmetically repaired with veneers.
Therefore, veneers are a conservative way of improving a tooth’s color, size, or shape.
The cost of porcelain veneers in the USA, Canada and Australia ranges between $1800- $2500 per tooth. If this is a daunting cost, then crossing international borders to India, Thailand, Vietnam, Mexico, Costa Rica, or Colombia is a good option as the prices here range between $140-$600.
So, you will not only save 60-80% on cost, but you could also squeeze in an overseas vacation. Compare Porcelain Veneer abroad prices with the USA and Canada here.
This procedure can take from 1-2 hours, depending on how many teeth you are getting restored. After the first visit, your teeth will feel a bit rough and strange. But don’t worry, they will look just the same, even from very close up.
You can try out your veneers and have them bonded on two separate visits as both these processes can take time.
|Coverage||Covers visible tooth (front)||Covers entire tooth|
|Tooth Reduction||Less tooth reduction||More tooth reduction|
|Thickness||1 mm||2 mm or more|
|Usage||Cannot be used for broken tooth or tooth decay||Cover all types of tooth defect|
Lumineers are made of the same material as that of the Veneers. However, the lumineers are ultra-thin and may resemble a contact lens in thickness. On top of it, there is no need to prepare or remove any sensitive part of your tooth.
In spite of such advantages, lumineers are not always preferred. The major reason is that these are expensive. Also, due to their extremely thin surface, these are unable to hide severely deformed teeth.
Lumineers are advanced versions of the traditional porcelain veneers. Read along to find the difference between the two.
|Thickness||0.5 mm thick||Only 0.2 mm thick|
|Tooth Reduction||~0.5 mm enamel removed||Not required|
|Masking||Can mask any tooth defect||Cannot mask severe damage|
|Fit||Made-to-order, so fits perfectly||Difficult to fit|
