How much does each veneer cost in Singapore?
Hi, I would like to do veneers for my upper set of teeth to even out the colour. However, as there is such a wide range of prices for veneers in Singapore, I would like to know what factors affect the cost of veneers, and also the approximate price I can expect to pay. Thank you!
Generally, the cost for veneers can range from $850- $2500 in Singapore.
This depends primarily on:
- The skills and training of the doctors
- The materials used
Like Dr Mak mentioned, veneers are typically done to enhance a patient's smile.
We will consider the ABC of your smile before considering veneers.
Alignment, Brightness and Contour of your teeth.
Since your main concern is the colour of your teeth, you can consider whitening. However, if whitening does not work well for you then you can consider veneers.
Depending on the type of veneers and aesthetic demand of the patient, veneers can be made from resin and ceramic. Ceramic type can be a single layer or multi layer with different colours.
Do shop around and go for a few consultations. Hope you can find someone who can cater to your needs and desire. Thank you.

Thanks for your enquiry regarding the cost of veneers.
Firstly, veneers are typically done to enhance a patient's smile via the following ways:
- Mask discolouration or to enhance colour
- Alter / restore tooth shape/ contour
- "Straighten" mild malocclusion of teeth (ie: gaps/ crowding)
Many factors affect the cost of veneers, such as materials used and case complexity.
When we refer to veneers, there are 2 main materials that can be used. They both have their own strengths and disadvantages as follows:
1) Tooth Coloured Materials
- Lower in cost (est $300-$500 per tooth)*
- Generally less tooth structure removal required
- Weaker in wear strength
- May discolour over time
- Higher in cost (est $900-$1200)*
- Possibly more tooth structure removal required
- Higher in wear strength
- More superior in aesthetics in general and stable in colour
*based on my own clinic charges
These are just some general insights that I can provide to you.
Due to the uniqueness and variations in every patient, there is a range of cost possible.
At the end of the day, your dentist will be able to provide you with a more detailed advice and quotation after the initial consultations and assessments are done.
Thanks once again.
