What are Dental Veneers?
Dental Veneers are wafer-thin shells that are bonded to the surfaces of teeth. The veneers are matched to the patients tooth colour to give them a more natural and even smile. Veneers are a popular choice for patients as they can drastically improve the overall aesthetics of your smile.
I have always been conscious of my teeth however I am so happy with my veneers. The team at Ascent Dental explained everything in detail to me and were very thorough. They made me feel extremely relaxed. I love my new smile.
I recommend Ascent Dental to everyone!
Types of Porcelain Veneers
1st Visit – During the consultation visit, you will select the type of veneer you want. We will assess your teeth to determine whether any initial work must be done on your teeth before mounting the veneer. A mould will be taken of the affected tooth and will be used to create the Emax veneer.
2nd Visit – The Emax veneer will be bonded to your tooth.
Da Vinci Veneers
Da Vinci veneers are extremely thin veneers. These veneers have been in use for more than 25 years. They are strong and durable. Used to cover stains, gaps or fill the chipped portion of your tooth.
Normally it requires only three visits to get the Da Vinci veneer fitted on your tooth.
1st Visit – During the initial examination visit, you discuss what treatment you require for your teeth. The dentist will look at the general condition of your teeth and if required you may have to get some other treatment such as a cleaning or filling of a cavity before you are suitable for the cosmetic treatment.
2nd Visit – During this visit, the cast of your tooth requiring a veneer will be taken. It will be given to the technician who will prepare it for your tooth. During this session, a small layer of your existing tooth may be removed (if needed) in order to make place for the veneer.
3rd Visit – When your veneer will be ready, you will see your dentist for the final fitting. The dentist will make minor adjustments if required and then the final bonding with your existing tooth will be done.
MAC veneers are made of pressable ceramic. They are a very popular veneers.
They can be used to:
- Cover your stains, cracks and chips
- Replace tooth filling
- Replace the bridge
Procedure of fixing
1st visit – Select the type of veneer you are interested in.
2nd visit – We will make some space on your existing tooth by removing a very thin layer of enamel. A mould will then be taken of your tooth. It will be sent to the dental labs for preparation of the MAC veneer.
3rd visit – The MAC veneer will be bonded to your tooth.
DURAthin Porcelain Veneers
DURAthin are an amazing new form of porcelain veneer which are very thin. They surprisingly require no preparation at all, as they can be fixed to your teeth directly from the outside. They are safe, as no protective emulsion on your teeth is required to be removed prior to their bonding. The most amazing part is that if you want to get them removed, it can be done without any harm to your original teeth.
Lumineers are a special type of porcelain veneer that can only be be prepared specifically for the Cerinate Smile Design Studio. They are made with a porcelain and are thinner than other veneers, but still remain strong and durable.
Most veneer treatments require preparation of the tooth before the placement of the veneer. This invasive technique is not always beneficial to the tooth. It actually removes a very sensitive and protective layer off your tooth. This procedure is non-reversible.
With Lumineers, there is most often no need to conduct any initial preparation or tooth filing. For some, the pain of these initial preparations can be unbearable and most people require anaesthesia.
Before & After
Patient had extensive anterior tooth wear from night time grinding (bruxism) and a high dietary acid intake. He had multiple poorly restored teeth over the years and was very embarrassed about his smile.
Teeth Whitening & Replacing an Old Veneer
This patient had an old single veneer which was over 15 years old. We carried out Ascent Teeth Whitening in combination with replacing the single veneer with a natural looking restoration
Treatment with a Twist
Previous dental work from another dentist left Fiona with a twisted tooth and a worn crown. Shiv to the rescue—with stunning veneers.

I am no longer afraid to laugh or smile. AJ is amazing and kind and patient! The whole team are wonderful absolutely worth the money! Confidence is well and truly boosted! Thanks guys ❤️
So glad I chose Ascent Dental when looking around to improve my teeth/smile. The staff are just lovely, and they always take the time to check in during/after appointments. I really feel looked after, and the results have been everything I hoped for.
Fantastic dentist , managed to fit me in same day and extract wisdom tooth that previous dentist had made a real mess of . So happy and pain free at last .
Excellent service from the team at Ascent Dental Care. My daughter has come to the end of her treatment and her braces removed just over a week ago, the results and care she received has been outstanding. Many thanks especially to Cassandra.
I have just finished treatment at Ascent Dental Care and can only thank the team for their care and professionalism. I am a very nervous patient so opted for sedation and was glad I did as I now have a less traumatic memory of having a deep clean and treatment for 2 crowns. Thank you to the team and would recommend this surgery to anyone who is nervous and putting off having treatment. Lorraine
As someone who has a dreadful fear of the dentist chair, I would like to thank both Laura for sorting out my emergency tooth problem and Jaz for his kindness and for his approach to my fears. Thank you all for your professionalism and most of all your kindness to someone who has a huge fear of dentists
Brilliant , professional, competent & thoroughly deserved of a Top rate review. I have had a denture implant which is so comfortable & looks just stunning. The care and precision taken by Dr Faresh Desai, his wonderful team & technicians has been outstanding. Now I am having crowns & a partial denture so am qualified to leave a 5 Star plus review. I cannot recommend highly enough.

I had a great experience with Yasmin being my Dentist at Ascent. She reassured me every step of the way throughout my journey. I had my teeth whitened, a new crown fitted and some composite bonding. I was so happy with the final result. Thankyou! 🤍 …
Incredible customer service, a consistently professional team that manage your cosmetic dentistry course and all its aspects. I put off my improvements for years because of horror stories I had heard about cosmetic outcomes, but delighted I picked Ascent Dental Care Solihull to finally manage my treatment. So a big thank you to Laura the cosmetic dentician and Rose for holding my hand proverbaly as I went through my course. A special mention for Laura’s supporting technicians and the reception staff, an excellent team full stop.
