Veneers are the art of dentistry. Pure ceramic veneer is a slight cover, a kind of small “sticker” which is used to recover injured, broken, discolored, or misshapen teeth. They help you achieve that dream Hollywood smile. Veneers allow you to correct multiple issues in just a single treatment.
At Allo Dental, we pride ourselves on producing the most natural veneers possible. We implement the techniques of bio-mimetization, which directly translate to the art of reproducing the biological. We are laser-focused on producing the transparency, opalescence, and balance of stratification of colors to ensure that your veneers are never detected amongst your natural teeth.
Veneers make it realistic for people to attain smiles that are glowing white, radiant, and youthful.
Ideal Candidates for Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are a great option for people who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth due to stains, cracks, chips, or small gaps.
You should not get veneers, however, if you have tooth decay or active gum disease, as veneers will prohibit proper treatment. The same applies if you habitually grind your teeth.
Veneers require the same level of care as natural teeth, and it is vital to continue your regular routine of cleaning, flossing and attending dental checkups if you want your veneers to last as long as possible.

Dental Veneer Options
You can get a veneer for just one problem tooth or many teeth. Usually people get veneers on the more visible front teeth.
Traditional veneers require grinding down the tooth for better fitting and adherence. This can be uncomfortable and requires local anesthetic.
You may have the option to choose between composite veneers and porcelain veneers. Composites can be applied in a single visit and only last five to seven years before needing replaced. Porcelain veneers must be custom-made after one appointment and then placed at a second appointment. These generally cost more but last as long as 15 years, if not longer.
What Is The Process For Fitting Veneers?
There are three main steps for fitting veneers.
Recovering From Veneers
If your veneers require filing down your teeth, you will experience some residual pain. Your dentist may prescribe a prescription painkiller, but over-the-counter medication is typically sufficient. The pain should not last more than a day or two.
The veneers themselves may take some getting used to as they will feel a little different than your natural teeth, but this adjustment should be easy and soon you won’t even notice a difference!
Benefits of Veneers
The benefits of veneers are mainly cosmetic. They are, however, a conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color and shape. In general, they don’t require extensive shaping as other procedures, like crowns, but are still a stronger and more aesthetic alternative.
Veneers benefits include:
- They provide a natural tooth appearance.
- Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well.
- Porcelain veneers are stain resistant.
- The color of a porcelain veneer can be selected such that it makes dark teeth appear whiter.
What Type Of Veneer Do You Recommend?
Veneers made using the Pressed Ceramic method (in which the veneer is molded from a single unit under heat and extreme pressure) offer unrivalled strength, versatility, and predictability.
E.max veneers represent one of the most reliable and high quality options on the market. Made from a single block of porcelain lithium disilicate method (a material renowned for its toughness and stability), using the pressed ceramic method E.max veneers combine durability with an unparalleled aesthetic.
For patients looking for a natural result, the E.max veneer offers one of the best solutions. We also have hybrid solutions that can provide different plays on opalescence, but this is something that the dentist will speak to you about if this is recommended for you.
Your dentist will talk you through the best and most suitable option for you during your initial consultation.
