Depends: It depends on the type of veneer. Composite veneers are chair side procedures and can be done in one appointment . Porcelain veneers on the other hand require an impression to be made and fabricated by the lab and requires two appointments.

Varies: It depends on wether they fit perfectly or have to be adjusted and how many are being delivered. Figure 15-20 per veneer. More veneers means more time.
Dr. David Duguid

It really depends: My typical porcelain veneer case involves 2 appointments, the preparation and one for delivery. If we prepare 10 - 20 teeth, which is customary, i schedule 2 three hour appts 2 wks apart. I do work with a ceramist that allows me to have beautiful custom veneers in one day utilizing the cerec system and they are still custom and exceptionally beautiful after he cuts them back and adds character.

It depends: It depends on how many you are having done. In a typical smile design, which is 8-10 veneers, it takes about 2 hours to prepare them and another 1-2 hours to bond them into place.

Variable cost: Depends on your provider. I have seen veneers range from about $500-$900 each and if you just want the gap closed you hopefully only need two. Call your dentist and find out.
