What is a dental veneers?
A dental veneer is a prosthetic device made to measure, made up of a fine ceramic particle which makes it possible to compensate for a defect in the structure of the teeth, the morphology of your teeth, the position or the color of the teeth when the bleaching is insufficient. . Veneers essentially concern only one side of the tooth: the vestibular side, the one we see when a person smiles, these veneers ensure a very natural and lasting result over time. Once in place, the dental veneers are an integral part of the teeth on which they are placed, this laying of the veneers often requires slightly cutting the teeth, generally between 0.2 and 0.3mm.
Who are dental veneers suitable for?
Veneers are for people who want to enhance their smile by modifying their visible teeth very slightly (canines, incisors, premolars). This can be by improving the color of the slightly damaged tooth (cracked, crooked, too short, etc.)

What is the E-max dental veneers?
Emax dental veneers are a type of porcelain veneer widely used today by many dental practices, these veneers are developed by Ivolar Vivadent, world leader in dental ceramics.
The Emax dental veneer is a very thin shell made to measure in lithium glass-ceramic, slightly translucent, which is glued to the patient’s teeth. Their lifespan of a dental veneer is 20 years and with us they are guaranteed for life, with good dental hygiene.
The veneers make it possible to correct the color, the shape (wear, broken or too short tooth…) or to hide an overlap or a space between the teeth. The function of these veneers being above all aesthetic, the veneers are reserved for the incisors and the canines, or even the premolars.
Other competing brands are River 8 “ready to wear” veneers, which do not fit all teeth; Zirconia Procera veneers, thicker and more opaque than Emax veneers.
What are the benefits of Emax dental veneers?
Considered the best porcelain-ceramic veneers available today, Emax veneers are thinner, more durable, and offer a natural appearance thanks to a slight translucency that brings them closest to organic tooth enamel.
Thanks to the fineness of these veneers, they are more flexible and more adaptable, these veneers requiring the tooth to be covered to be cut.
The main advantage of Emax veneers is the absence of metal inside the ceramic alloy, as in crowns made of metal porcelain, whose metal base must be hidden under the gum.
These Emax veneers have an aesthetic appearance very close to a natural tooth, the veneers also offer the patient a very satisfactory result, invisible to the smile.
The veneers fit very well into the gums, which cover the top of the veneers and spring back into place after a few days.
Composites, an alternative to ceramic veneers?
To further preserve the dental tissues, especially in the event of temporary repair (in children…) or light repair (broken angle…), it is possible to use composites. These materials, also used as alternatives to metal amalgams, come in the form of a malleable paste that adheres to the tooth with little or no cutting.
The paste is modeled until the desired shape is obtained, hardened under a halogen lamp, then polished.
Composites come in different shades. They avoid going through the laboratory stage and are therefore less expensive and better reimbursed by social security than the veneer. The rendering is however a little less aesthetic and their inexorable aging, with a lifespan of about five years (click here to see our treatments)
How much does a dental veneers cost?
The price of a dental veneer is mainly linked to 2 factors:
- The first is the quality of the materials with which the veneers are made, of course an Emax veneer will not have the same price as a zirconia veneer or a porcelain veneer, however the difference is not very tall. If we look from a value for money point of view, Emax veneers are the best investment we can make if we want to change our smile into a very natural smile for a very long time.
- The experience of the dentist obviously, you imagine that a dentist with little experience will not be able to refine the work and the laying of the veneers such as a doctor who has years of experience and who has already offered veneers on several occasions.
How many appointments should be scheduled for the E-max dental veneers?
A first appointment is first necessary to establish, with your dental surgeon, an aesthetic project, to make a dental check-up and to choose the type of material and the color of the facets corresponding to the wishes of the patient, as well as a precise estimate, without surprises (you can request your free consultation by clicking here)
The second appointment will be devoted to the size of the teeth, and the making of an impression of the teeth on which the veneers will be placed, each veneer being made to measure. Provisional veneers will be placed, the time to make the veneers before the last appointment.
During the third session, performed under local anesthesia, the final Emax veneers will be tried on, then your veneers will be bonded. This last treatment can last several hours, each dental veneer requiring about 20 minutes of exposure.
How are the veneers placed?
The practitioner then takes new impressions of the prepared teeth and then places temporary veneers to protect them and make them presentable while waiting for the final veneers.
An intermediate test is often scheduled before this last step. “The pose takes place under local anesthesia, with setting up of an operating field. It is a particularly long and delicate session, where it is essential to respect a precise protocol”
What is the lifespan of a dental veneer?
The lifespan of a dental veneer varies from one dentist to another, some can give you a guarantee of 10 or 15 years, others can go up to 20 years of guarantee, with us our veneers have a 20 year warranty and can be guaranteed for a lifetime if the patient has good oral hygiene. “Book Free Online Consultation With Us”
How long do dental veneers last? Do they wear out over time?
The answers to these questions depend on the type of dental veneer used:
- Porcelain dental veneers or ceramic veneers offer the best lifespan, 20 years, without color change or shape alteration.
- Composite dental veneers have a lower lifespan of about 5 years.
Good oral hygiene is also essential to ensure the longevity of dental veneers once placed.
How to maintain a dental veneer?
The veneers blend naturally with the rest of the dentition and are well accepted by the gums, which return to their place in a few days.
The veneers do not require any particular maintenance apart from impeccable oral hygiene (use of brushes and dental floss, regular scaling, etc.) and the wearing of a gutter for night protection for people prone to bruxism.
Can a dental veneer be removed?
In order not to break, the veneers must have sufficient height and thickness, which often requires cutting the teeth. In all cases, the enamel is partially removed to allow the glue to adhere, this step allows the veneers to be well bonded and avoid any risk that you will lose your veneers one day or another.
