Porcelain Dental Veneers
Porcelain Veneers are a type of dental veneer that is bonded to the surfaces of your teeth to improve the overall aesthetics and sometimes the function of your tooth/teeth.
The principle of veneers is similar to that of placing false fingernails offering perfect shape and colour. Veneers are laboratory-constructed custom-made facings, which are mechanically bonded to the tooth surface.
Veneers provide excellent aesthetics because the lab can actually incorporate characteristics such as greater opacity and special stains and colours that allow an almost perfect match to your own tooth structure.
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 have just finished my treatment with Ascent Dental after 6 months of having Lingual braces to adjust crowding in my upper teeth. I have been very impressed with the service given to me, and would thoroughly recommend the practice to anyone looking to improve their smile. Dr Gursh Bajwa made the treatment comfortable, yet effective, and I am very happy with the results. I would like to thank all the staff at Ascent Dental for the high level of care and service they have given me.

I recently went to Ascent Dental Care for a scheduled cleaning and mentioned I had chipped a tooth and wanted some other work done. Doctor Coughlin arranged for my tooth to be repaired and for my other work to be done immediately after my cleaning, despite the practice being busy at the time.
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 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
Fabulous experience end to end with Ascent – lovely practice and lovely people who have done a fantastic job with my sons teeth which are now a beauty to behold!! Thank you to all of the team :-)
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.
