To gain a beautiful smile, choosing veneers requires careful consideration and analysis, in order to take into account all the elements of calculation and get the best product at the best price. Not refunded by the health insurance system and often badly covered by personal health insurances, since it is considered as cosmetic dentistry, dental veneers offer a wide range of prices. Depending on the material chosen –porcelain or composite-, the prosthetist’s fees, the dentist’s fees and the dental clinic’s margin, the price of a dental veneer in the UK can vary from £275 up to £1000 per unit. And when a set of twelve veneers must be implemented, the bill can quickly become unbearable…
In the same way, considering the installation of veneers for aesthetic reasons should not mask the need to take care of deeper orthodontic problems, beforehand. Each patient is different, each dentition has its own specificities and solutions: dental implants, crowns or clear aligners may be necessary before adopting dental veneers. Don’t put the car before the horse ! Hence the importance of a precise estimate, taking all the parameters in consideration, in order to obtain a personalized diagnosis and to better compare prices, especially when a patient decides, in order to save money, to carry out his dental care abroad.
Thus, when asking for an estimate, and in order to better compare prices in the UK, the Netherlands, and the most competitive dental tourism destinations (Hungary, Spain and Turkey), it is imperative to take into account the possible orthodontic work, the type of materia and the brand, the fees of the prosthetist and those of the dentist, as well as the clinic fees, all of which vary. Choosing quality also means choosing the life span of your veneers, like a long-term investment on your smile. A gummy smile treatment may also be necessary (which is systematically done by Body Expert), in order to align your gums with your new teeth!
A first appointment with a practitioner in your country allows you to identify the problems, establish an initial estimate, and then compare the prices charged abroad.
Prices of dental veneers according to the type of material and the brand.
|Material||Average price per veneer in UK||Average price per veneer in Spain||Average price per veneer in Hungary||Average price per veneer in Turkey|
|Composite resin veneer||Between £275-£475||380€||350€||Not recommended
|Porcelain veneer with Emax finish||Between
|Lumineers||Between £850 to £950||900€||800€||Not recommended|
As this comparison table reveals, the price of dental veneers is subject to significant price variability, depending on the material chosen and the country where the patient will choose to have his operation. If each type of dental veneer has its advantages and disadvantages, the dental clinics selected by Body Expert in Istanbul, Turkey, advise against composite resin veneers, notably because of their faster degradation and their inevitable yellowing. Their preference is for ceramic veneers with porcelain finish, both for aesthetic reasons and for their durability. However, it is important to choose the best formula: Lumineers ceramic veneers are not recommended by Body Expert’s dental specialists because of their standardized look (the famous Hollywood smile)and the teeth whitening, their long manufacturing time and their production constraints. In fact, only patients with minor defects, without overlapping or deformation, can be eligible for Lumineers veneers, which do not require prior trimming of the teeth. Which concerns a very small proportion of cases!
Prices of Emax dental veneers depending on the country chosen
The dental specialists prescribed by Body Expert prefer to work with Emax porcelain veneers with a custom-made finishing, offering the widest range of shades on the market. With the Emax porcelain finish, the veneers will be identical as the patient’s natural teeth. These high-end veneers are slightly more expensive, but they can be adapted to each dentition and last much longer: from 15 to 20 years, or even longer, if the patient takes extra care of his teeth hygiene. The icing on the cake: Body Expert offers a two-year warranty on Emax veneers. The charts below compare the prices of Emax veneers performed in the UK with those offered in Hungary, Spain and Turkey, the three most competitive dental tourism destinations for European patients.
Between the UK and Turkey, the price difference -more than 70% savings on average- does not challenge the quality of the material used or the dental care expertise of Turkish professionals: the testimonies and the results before/after the implementation gathered from Body Expert’s patients tend to prove it. This difference can be explained by the price of labor, especially that of the dental prosthesists, who can produce very high quality prostheses, but are paid four times less than their colleagues in UK…
