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.

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.
Very professional dental service, I’ve needed a lot of treatment over the past 6 or 7 months but have to say all the staff are extremely pleasant and welcoming, jas is a top dentist always explaining my options and always extremely professional in his work. Highly recommended
I would like to say big thank you for an amazing Dr Aneka and the entire team of Ascent Dental for their support in my journey to achieve my dream smile, you have really changed my life and made me the happiest person in the world!..
I had my two front crowns taken out and replaced with implants and a further crown fitted by Faresh and have nothing but praise for the whole team. The Surgery is welcoming and peaceful and the staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Faresh is not only extremely skilled in the mechanical and surgical sides of dentistry, he also has an excellent chair-side manner and makes you relaxed and confident. The process was long and at times painful but the treatment and support was first rate and the result was worth it. I am a very satisfied and happily smiling customer!! Thank you Ascent Dental
The care I received was exemplary from my dentist Mo he made me feel completely relaxed and exxplained the procedure every step of the way I would most definitely use Dorridge again for any root canal work.
As a nervous patient I can highly recommend this dentist. Jaz is very professional as well as being understanding and nothing is too much trouble.
All Staff are most friendly x
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.
Made me feel relaxed when I was feeling a bit anxious, really friendly & knowledgeable about what they are doing & sent me off feeling very confident. Followed up with a courtesy call the next day.
Really pleased with my treatment so far 👍👍 …
For many years I felt self conscious about my teeth which inhibits the ability to smile, so I eventually decided to get something done and approached Ascent Dental Care in Dorridge. From the initial visit they were professional and efficient. The treatment from Yasmine and the team at Ascent was excellent, perhaps a little uncomfortable at times but not painful. The results are fantastic and now I just have to get into the habit of smiling and showing my wonderful new teeth.
I have always been self-conscious about my smile and choosing Ascent Dental Care in Solihull was the best decision I’ve made. I’m currently undergoing a smile makeover treatment. I want to say a huge thank you to Devan for my fabulous gum lift procedure! Thank you to Yasmin and Jespal for putting a plan in place so I can FINALLY get my perfect smile. The whole team are very professional and supportive. I honestly can’t fault them.
I don’t normally leave reviews but I would 100% recommend Ascent Dental Care. I can’t wait to see the final results because I know I’m in good hands 🙂
Thank you so much!!!
Very impressed with Gursh and his team with regard to orthodontic treatment. Very attentive, efficient and friendly service, making the whole process really quick and easy. Appointments for wire changes are so fast, meaning I’m in and out in minutes. Can’t recommend them highly enough.
I first had dental treatment (implant & veneer) with Faresh in May 2013. It was a years worth of treatment and the end result was so natural looking. As my bottom teeth weren’t the straightest, I decided to have a brace fitted with Gursh. After just over 17 weeks, I had my brace removed yesterday (25/8/14) and for me, it was a Hollywood reveal. My TEETH ARE AMAZING!!!
