The Cost of Dental Veneers in Lincoln, NE
Many patients want a perfect smile, thus making dental veneers an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure. Whether you would like to have perfectly white teeth, want to correct chips or cover misshapen or misaligned teeth, dental veneers could be the perfect cosmetic solution for you.
Dental veneers are about the same thickness as a contact lens and cover the facial (front) surfaces of teeth, masking any imperfections. Unlike a crown, a veneer only wraps around the front of the tooth instead of encasing the entire tooth. To place dental veneers, less tooth structure is removed before bonding, making veneers a more conservative option versus full coverage crowns.

How do we place dental veneers? Dr. Kim Polley, Your Lincoln, NE Dentist Answers…
Dental veneers are usually a two-step process. After your initial cosmetic evaluation, we will prepare your teeth for dental veneers. At the beginning of this appointment, we’ll take an impression of your teeth and use this to fabricate your temporary veneers while you await the arrival of your permanent veneers from the dental lab. Once you are numb and comfortable, we will remove just enough tooth structure to allow the dental veneers to fit and look natural.
After our cosmetic dentists has reshaped your teeth, we will take another impression. This mold is sent to our dental laboratory where your permanent veneers will be made in approximately two weeks. After two weeks, we’ll remove the temporary veneers and replace them with your permanent veneers. Now, you’ll have a brand new smile!
What are Lumineers®?
Is the cost of Lumineers® different than dental veneers? Dr. Kim Polley, Your Lincoln, NE Dentist Answers…
Yes, Lumineers® are different than traditional veneers. They are thinner than a traditional veneer at only 0.2 mm and have a high translucency. Because of this they most resemble natural tooth enamel, and little to no tooth structure needs to be removed when they are placed because they are so thin.
For minor discoloration or changes to your smile, Lumineers® may be a great option for you. Unfortunately, Lumineers® are not a great option for fixing imperfections, such as gaps between teeth, crowding, or for any other significant cosmetic changes.
Other disadvantages of Lumineers® are:
- If no tooth structure is removed, some feel Lumineers can look “bulky”.
- Little room for adjustment because they are so thin.
The cost of Lumineers® in comparison to Dental Veneers?
Lumineers® can be more expensive than a traditional dental veneer. The cost of Lumineers® (per tooth) in Lincoln, NE is around $1200.
