Please note, the purpose of this email is not to go into detail about our office protocols during the current COVID- 19 response. We always have and will continue to maintain the highest level of aseptic and sterilization techniques. Regarding our office hours, we are presently closed as a result of recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the American Dental Association. For patients with upcoming appointments, trust that we will communicate directly with you via phone call to reschedule them as we learn more about our current situation.

For the time being, we want to extend to you, our patients, the helping hand you need during these times for all things dental. While we may be limited in terms of office hours and available services, Drs. Pinnix and Betancourt remain available to you via other modalities. For example, we ask that you please find and follow our social media pages, pinnixandbetancourt on Instagram, Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney on Facebook, and @BlakeneySmiles on Twitter. We will use these social media outlets as a means of communication and also a way to provide a Question & Answer forum for general questions anyone may have.

For personal/private needs related to ongoing treatment or your dental health, we will be available to schedule a virtual consultation. This may be accomplished via FaceTime, Zoom meeting or other platform whereby we may have a face to face encounter. These will be available to you, our patient, as a courtesy.

These are unprecedented times for us all. We strive to be on the front edge of the capabilities and service we provide our patients. Much of that depends on our availability and communication. We are here and we will, across any medium possible, provide the guidance you need during these difficult times. We ask that you please reach out to us either via email to the office (admin@blakeneysmiles.com), one of our social media platforms, or our phone line from which you can leave a message. We will make every effort possible to get back to you in a timely manner.

UNDERSTANDING THE COST OF PORCELAIN VENEERS

Many factors can impact the porcelain veneers cost, including the materials used, the number of veneers placed, and the experience of your dentist. At our Charlotte, NC, practice, we customize each treatment plan to the unique needs and goals of our patients, so costs vary on a case-by-case basis. During your consultation, Drs. John M. Pinnix and George A. Betancourt can evaluate your oral health and provide you with a cost estimate so you can budget accordingly. To make care more manageable, Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney accepts CareCredit® and Citi® Health Card financing to assist patients with any out-of-pocket costs. Porcelain veneers can address a variety of concerns simultaneously, making this treatment an excellent choice for smile makeovers or any patient who wishes to transform their smile.

The material of your veneers and the number of teeth being treated can affect the overall treatment cost.

Factors that Affect the Cost of Veneers

Veneers can range in cost from several hundred to a few thousand dollars per tooth. The overall cost is dependent on a variety of factors, including:

  • Type of Veneers: There are several different brands of porcelain veneers available, each featuring its own cost. At Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, we offer state-of-the-art IPS e.max® and IPS Empress® porcelain. Each option delivers stunning, realistic results and lasting durability. We can help you choose the most suitable material for your needs.
  • Number of Veneers: Patients who only require one to two veneers will typically have a lower treatment cost than patients who are addressing their entire smile.
  • Experience of the Doctor: The experience, training, and credibility of the dentist placing your veneers can also impact the overall cost. A doctor with decades of experience will typically charge more than a dentist new to the industry. However, an experienced dentist has a greater chance of delivering better results. When researching a cosmetic dentist to place your veneers, it is important to review their success rates and patient satisfaction. Both Dr. Pinnix and Dr. Betancourt are committed to providing the highest quality of care to our patients.

If you have additional questions about the cost of your unique treatment, our team would be happy to further assist you during your consultation.

At Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney we offer state-of-the-art IPS e.max® and IPS Empress® porcelain.

Veneers vs. Orthodontics

Deciding whether porcelain veneers or orthodontics is the right choice for you will depend on your budget, the complexity of your concerns, your time commitment, and your cosmetic goals. Patients who wish to maintain their natural teeth, but are struggling with dental misalignment and minor extrinsic stains can transform their smiles with Invisalign® and a professional teeth whitening treatment. Depending on the number of teeth that need to be repaired, this treatment may be more affordable than porcelain veneers. However, final results could take one to two years. Patients who have both damaged and misaligned teeth can transform their smile in less than one month with porcelain veneers.

Financing Your Veneers

Because porcelain veneers are considered a cosmetic dentistry treatment, they are generally not covered by dental insurance. However, we understand that having a straighter smile can boost your self-confidence and transform your appearance. To help make treatment more budget-friendly, we accept financing through CareCredit and Citi Health Card. 
With these financing plans, your treatment can be divided into affordable, monthly payments.

Schedule Your Consultation

If you wish to transform your smile in just two office visits, you may enjoy the benefits of porcelain veneers. To determine if you are a candidate and learn more about the cost of treatment, contact our office online or call (704) 543-1102 to schedule your consultation.
