Does the shaping of teeth matter before getting veneers?
The preparation of the teeth is of vital importance. His philosophy of minimal preparation of the tooth, shaping teeth to preserve tooth structure and his unique bonding protocol increases the longevity of veneers 10 fold. Unfortunately, we have seen many patients disappointed when they hear they thought they got veneers when they actually got crowns!

Modern dental technology has made porcelain veneers more convenient for patients. They are more lifelike and stronger than enamel. Porcelain veneers also can resemble that of a natural dental enamel or bleach white.
With digital imaging systems, dentists can accomplish one-day restorations that are a near-perfect match to the natural color of your teeth, or alter the color of your teeth permanently.

Time always reveals the truth. Dental materials can alter the price of dental veneers. Other issues can affect the full cost of veneers, such as the complexity of your smile to be redesigned, the wear and tear on the existing teeth, the exposure of dentin, loss of enamel, the existing alignment of your teeth, the final custom color you desire, the architecture of the gums surrounding your teeth, your existing bite and occlusion.

Does porcelain veneer cost differ depending on the type of veneer?
Porcelain veneers can be made from various types of dental porcelain such as feldspathic ( stacking porcelain), Procera, Emax, empress, milled porcelain vs pressed porcelain, and many other types. The latest and most durable material would cost more than the cost of opting for older products.
Each has its benefits and pitfalls, the experience of the dentist to know when to use a specific type of porcelain is priceless. The placement procedures, such as the bonding protocol of the dentist can also impact the cost. For example, thin veneers can carry a higher cost due to dexterity and the choice of bonding material needed to make the veneer life-like, at the same time make it last for many years to come.
The type of porcelain combined with the design of the smile to mimic the shape, length, and width to match the desired personality for each smile by the dentist is priceless.

To have one front tooth done to match exactly the other teeth surrounding and opposing is one of the most challenging tasks for a cosmetic dentist and his master ceramist. Of course, it carries a higher price, due to the amount of work, custom coloring, and contouring it requires.
Prices for single front tooth restoration can go to $5000 and even higher, depending on the custom color required and the number of visits required.
