What is the price for Lumineers per tooth? Is it more or less than traditional porcelain veneers?
How Much Do Lumineers Cost?

As every patient is different, it is usually hard to give a flat fee cost for Lumineers (or any dental treatment, especially cosmetic work) without seeing the patient first. There are often many other factors present that need to be evaluated and addressed before cosmetic dental work can be performed (gum health, pre-existing condition of all of the teeth, what the bite is like, etc.). Final treatment cost depends on the number of teeth involved as well as the complexity of the individual case. Lab costs vary widely as does the expertise and training of the dentist.
If you are considering cosmetic dental work, you should find a dentist who has had extensive training in performing this kind of work. Ask how long has he/she been placing veneers, how much post-graduate training has he/she had in this type of treatment, how many patients has he/she treated, how complex were the cases, etc. Remember that this level of care is very technique sensitive and should last for many years, and most importantly, this is your body and your health you are talking about. Even in this economic climate, don't make your decisions based only on price.
Should cost about the same
Most of the fees associated with Lumineers or traditional veneers is about the same. Time in the chair is the same, lab fee is the same, etc, so it stands to reason that the final fee would be about the same.
There may be variations, but in essence the same.
As far as how much specifically, that really can vary widely. Plan on a range usually between $4000 and $20,000.
