Veneers are often associated with increasing the aesthetics of your teeth, but that’s not always the only reason people get them. While they do help the overall look of your smile, there are many instances in which veneers are used to restore damaged or crooked teeth.

How Much Do Veneers Cost in NJ?

One veneer will generally fall in the price range of $350-$2,000+. Since everyone is different, it’s impossible to say how much your veneers will cost without conducting an in-depth oral exam.

Several factors affect the total price of your procedure, including the type of anesthesia you need, your geographic location, how many veneers you need, and how much your insurance will cover.

What Affects the Cost of Veneers in NJ?

The cost of veneers in New Jersey is different for almost everyone. Here are some of the biggest determinants of veneer costs.


Depending on the dentist’s recommendations and your personal preference, you can get veneers under local anesthetics or sedation. Most patients go the local route if just one or two veneers are being replaced.

On the other hand, sedation is usually the preferred method if veneers need to extend beneath the gum line, you are getting several veneers, or you have a phobia of dental procedures.

Since sedation is a much more complicated process, it makes veneer procedures cost more.


Not all veneers are made of the same materials, and not all materials have the same prices. Here is how much each type of veneer costs.

Also, the materials used determine how many visits and prep work need to be done during the process.


Porcelain veneers are among the most popular veneer types. They’re versatile and are a great option for chipped, cracked, or misaligned teeth.

For the “full mouth” estimates below, we are using figures for eight veneers because that’s typically considered a full set for a moderately wide smile.

  • Single: $900-$2,500+
  • Full Mouth: $7,200-$20,000+
  • Lifespan of 10-15 years
  • Closely resemble natural teeth
  • Stain resistant
  • Long application process
  • Irreversible
  • 5-10 days to complete the process


E-Max veneers are made from lithium disilicate glass ceramic and are a fairly new type of veneer. They are becoming increasingly popular because of their strength and uncanny ability to match your natural teeth. As a result, they are a popular option when just one or two teeth need a veneer.

  • Single: $600-$1,800+
  • Full Mouth: $4,800-$14,400+
  • 10-15 year lifespan
  • Match teeth very well
  • Stain resistant
  • Can accurately be made into the perfect shape and size
  • Long application process
  • Can easily chip or crack
  • Irreversible
  • 5-10 days to complete the process


Zirconia is one of the strongest materials currently available for veneers. Because of their strength, they are perfect for repairing teeth with severe decay or damage.

  • Single: $1,000-$2,200+
  • Full Mouth: $8,000-$17,600+
  • 15+ year lifespan
  • Resistant to chipping and cracking
  • Can look unnatural
  • Hard to change
  • Best for full-mouth restoration
  • 5-10 days to complete the process


Composite veneers are the most affordable option but don’t stack up to other types in terms of their durability or looks.

  • Single: $250-$1,500
  • Full Mouth: $2,000-$1,200
  • Most affordable option
  • Same-day application process
  • Easy modification
  • Not stain-resistant
  • Lifespan of about five years
  • Unnatural look

Geographic Location

Like with most things, the cost of veneers is more expensive where income levels and cost of living are higher. People with lower incomes couldn’t afford the prices that are charged in places like Los Angeles or New York City. As a result, few dentists would be able to keep their doors open.

Experience of the Dentist

Most service industry professionals charge more based on experience and reputation. These usually go hand in hand, and you are paying for a lower level of risk when you choose an experienced cosmetic dentist.

Insurance Coverage

Insurance coverage can drastically affect the cost of veneers in NJ by taking some of the burden of payment off you.

Many insurance companies will partially cover medically necessary veneer procedures. However, if your teeth are not causing any problems and you want to get veneers solely for aesthetics, there’s a good chance you’ll be paying completely out of pocket for them.

To see what your insurance covers, check over your policy or call your agent to prevent surprises on the day of your procedure.
