I dont have the veneers, but I have 4 porcelain bridges (whole teeth) - they were more expensive but the porcelain looks just likes real tooth! I would defo say porcelain looks best!
I had to have them as my childhood dentist removed 4 PERMANENT teeth in error - he was supposed to take out 4 baby teeth!

just had a quick google and price is ranged £300- £500 per veneer which sounds about right I suppose
or go on a dental holiday - they are £200 a tooth

My private dentist will charge anything from £500 up just for the veneers. You also will be charged possibly for initial consultation, xrays, moulds and fittings. They are not as expensive as some people think. I have heard of some new ones (can't remember name) that are more lightweight and supposed to not cause as much pain and sensitivity.
Ohhh let us know if you get them done, me and dh want to have them done for different reasons but don't know anyone who has done it.

why would you want porcelain veneers? to do a veneer, we have to drill into the tooth a little bit, you're taking away sound tooth if it's completely for cosmetic purpose, taking away sound teeth leaves a risk of nerve damage etc blah blah blah. if you do want cosmetic treatment done, porcelain is the best but here in the uk you will pay the price. note if you do go away, your dentist will most likely not do anything with that veneer, if you need something doing to it, it is not his reponsibility - if he touches it, he is then responsible for it and usually they won't do it as it wasn't their work in the first place. if the veneer fails, you then have to have a crown, taking away more of the tooth and leaving even more risk of nerve damage, if the nerve fails, that's the crown being taken off, you having a root canal treatment - which is not at all pleasant - and then having to pay for a new crown to be put back on. if that fails, you risk losing the tooth altogether. think about it, it's a lot of money and a lot of risk just to 'look good'. but like i said if you want to go ahead, porcelain is your best bet yes. x

Also ....don't they have a short life-span? I used to watch all those makeover shows when they were on 5 or 6 years ago. I'm sure that they said the veneers need replacing after 10 years. Has anyone else heard this? Sounds like it's not just the initial payout, you'll be paying again and again and again (depending on how old you are to start with!).
