Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
Cheap Veneers!! The price difference in veneers is dramatic in some cases. You can travel to Mexico and get a “great deal”. I’ve seen adverts for $400 each. Sounds great, but as the old saying goes “if it’s too good to be true it probably is”. What if one of your veneers broke or fell off just before a big presentation or special event?
Would the cost savings be worth it if your veneers started to stain or crack after just a few months? I had a new patient who came to see me as her New Mexican veneers fell off on the flight home. Yes on the flight home. You’re probably considering porcelain veneers because you want a fantastic smile, so it just doesn’t make sense to sacrifice quality. With some purchases, cost may be the most important factor. But veneers aren’t something like a TV or pair of jeans. If you buy a certain model Samsung TV it makes sense to shop around and find all the stores that sell that particular model and find the cheapest price. Each TV model is identical, made in the same factory etc., the only difference is the price. But veneers are different. Veneers are not picked out of a box, instead they are customized to you and your tooth. Each veneer in the same mouth is different and customized to the tooth it covers. Quality of porcelain veneers varies depending on:
Quality of the material: The technology used to manufacture porcelain veneers has advanced by leaps and bounds in recent years.
Skill of the ceramist: Each porcelain veneer is hand-made, and only a master ceramist will be able to craft you’re veneers so that they perfectly match the shape, size and color of your existing teeth.
Cost is a potential barrier to receiving the level of veneer you wish to create your smile, which is why we have financing options available. We will not begin your veneers procedure until you completely understand the costs involved. We offer financing options to help with costs. I also advise patients to wait and save if they need. If you’re in the Calgary area, we would love to help you review your veneers options with a free consultation and get you on the road to a stunning new smile. Call our office to arrange a free consultation.
