Cost of Crowns and Veneers
Most of the time both veneers and crowns average around $1,000 (depending on what they’re made out of). That’s not including insurance, which usually covers a portion of crowns (but not cosmetic veneers.) If you properly take care of your new teeth, then your restorations will likely last for many years before needing to be updated.
Caring for Crowns and Veneers
Having good home care will help ensure that your restoration and natural tooth underneath stay strong and healthy. Brushing twice daily is important, especially at the gumline where the tooth meets the porcelain. This area is called the margin, and it’s where plaque will sit and eventually decay your tooth if it’s not cleaned off properly. Flossing will help you remove food particles from between your teeth that you can’t reach when brushing.
