Dental Treatment and Services
At City Dental Lounge we’ll work with you to come up with solutions for your dental problems, that will not only suit your lifestyle but your budget also. You may need to prioritise your treatment over a period of time. Our team can help you by indicating the work that has a higher urgency and we can cater for any dental emergency or toothache straight away.
We work with you to create an individual dental treatment plan that works for you and your family. Our patients come and see us at regular 4-6 monthly intervals for a Hygienist cleaning, and 12 month intervals for their annual examination and maintenance appointment with the dentist.
Dental Emergency and Toothache
If you require urgent treatment, for example, you have a broken tooth or are in pain and have a dental emergency, call us and we will make every effort to see you ASAP.
Assessments and Treatment Planning, if you haven’t been for a while
Our team can help you by indicating the work that has a higher urgency with the latest 3D scanner treatment.
A written estimate will be provided either on the day, or shortly thereafter. I am happy to work with you in creating a dental treatment plan that works for you. We also offer 12 months Interest Free Treatments with the Q Mastercard.
- We use the latest knowledge in dental medicine to combat the diseases of dental caries (decay) and periodontal disease of the gums and jaw bone. We can provide a detailed prescription of products and instructions, to help treat and prevent these diseases that cause tooth loss and poor oral health. The best prevention is to visit us at regular intervals for your maintenance appointments so we can assess any issues early, saving you time and money.

Does your Smile need a Makeover?
Building a better smile can give you more confidence in your personal life and at work. People simply smile more often when they have nice looking teeth. We first assess your smile. We look at tooth shape, colour and the position of the teeth. Then we’ll work with you to find the right set of cosmetic treatments to design you new smile. We also offer a ‘Trial Smile’ service, where we mock up your new smile in your mouth, giving you the option of wearing it before committing to the real thing.
Get the smile you have always wanted with a Smile Makeover
Dr Harris has attended many cosmetic dentistry courses all over the world and uses the latest technology and her artistic talent, to create a
natural beautiful smile to replace worn, ageing, and broken down teeth.
Dr Harris provides a ‘Trial Smile‘ service our clients love. You will have a new smile to try out and see if you like the shape, colour and
appearance of your teeth before you proceed with the ‘real’ thing.
If you love what you see and proceed with treatment we will credit the cost of this back to you.
The temporary “mock up“ will show you what‘s possible and you can leave with it on or with a photograph to show your friends and family.

Hygienist Services & Teeth cleaning
What is a Dental Hygienist?
Dental Hygienists help to prevent and treat gum problems. Regular cleaning from the dental hygienist will remove plaque &
tartar build up. Brown stains from tea, coffee & smoking can be polished away, leaving your teeth sparkly and feeling great.
How Often should I visit a Hygienist?
It is recommended by the New Zealand Dental Association to visit a dental hygienist every 4-6 months to maintain
a healthy mouth. Regular Hygiene visits can help restore your gums to a healthy state.
Healthy Gums = Healthy Heart
Keeping your gums healthy has a positive influence not just in the mouth, but for your whole body.You are less likely to develop heart disease and other serious problems if you look after your gums. We can give you practical advice & teach you simple skills to keep gums in the best of health.
Sedation & Sleep Denistry
If you are terrified of going to the dentist, conscious sedation may be the answer. Prior to any treatment your medical and dental history will be reviewed and assessed for suitability. On the day of your appointment, you’ll take medication – as a pill or drink. A companion needs to escort you to and from your visit to us. We monitor you very closely while you are sedated. Most patients have little or no memory of the visit.
