City Quay Dental Clinic


Achieve a custom smile with veneers. These thin facings attach to the front of your teeth, granting you a bright and visually-perfect smile.

We Make Beautiful Smiles with Cosmetic Veneers

Bright, uniform Hollywood smiles are quite captivating, but many of those stunning grins are veneers. Veneers are thin shell-like coverings that resemble the shape of a natural tooth. Each is made uniquely by our dental lab to provide a perfect fit over the tooth’s front surface. We have veneers made to size, shape, and colour specifications so that we can deliver a smile made just for you.

Many patients choose veneers to improve the appearance of their teeth. They are an ideal way of hiding less-than-perfect teeth which have become discoloured, chipped, crooked, or misshapen. Veneers cover teeth imperfections, so all others see when they look at you is a first-class smile.

Veneers Come with Many Advantages

Veneers can help create your ideal smile in a single treatment. Patients love their veneers because they:

Choosing the Right Veneer for Each Individual

At City Quay, we pride ourselves on curating a patient experience that meets your needs and preferences. We provide our patients with options, high-quality dental care with every treatment and seamless results.
Every single one of our patients is unique, and your veneers should be as well. We design smiles exclusive to you, and in the treatment planning process, we discuss whether you would prefer composite or porcelain veneers and the pros and cons of each.

Composite Veneers

We make your bespoke composite veneers while you are in the dentist’s chair, and we often complete the treatment in one visit — immediately making your teeth more aesthetically pleasing. We use composite material and shape it directly on your tooth. Together we select a shade for the composite that is bright but still looks natural.

Composite veneers are a cost-effective way of changing the appearance of your teeth. When deciding whether composite veneers are right for you, it is important to note that they typically last up to five years before they need replacing.

An Overview of Composite Veneer Treatment
This type of veneer can often be done in one visit, immediately making your smile look more aesthetically pleasing. In this treatment, we do not have to remove any enamel, making it an almost fully reversible procedure that does not require local anaesthesia.
The dentist will:

Porcelain Veneers

Natural-looking, durable, and long-lasting porcelain veneers offer extravagant results. Each veneer is made with premium porcelain and precisely crafted in a laboratory; therefore, they take longer than their composite counterparts. We have these veneers made to our specifications, ensuring we provide you with a smile that fits just right and looks impeccable for years to come.

Porcelain veneers will last for decades with proper care, making them worthy of the investment.

An Overview of Porcelain Veneer Treatment

Unlike composite veneers, porcelain veneer treatment requires multiple appointments. It is important to note that there will be enamel removal, making porcelain veneers a permanent and lifelong commitment.

At your first porcelain veneer treatment, the dentist files down the front of your teeth, taking away some of your enamel. This removal is necessary, as it enables your future veneers to fit naturally into your smile rather than stick out.

Once complete, we take an impression of your teeth, which the dental laboratory uses as a blueprint for creating well-fitting veneers to your specifications. Until your permanent veneers are manufactured, we place temporary veneers to protect your teeth.

When your new veneers arrive, we will invite you back to the practice for placement. At this appointment (and subsequent appointments, if necessary), we clean your teeth and apply a solution to roughen up the front of your teeth. We use adhesive and accurately place the veneer. This process can take some time, as we need to ensure a precise fit for each veneer.

Once we apply your veneers, your new smile is ready to show off to others.

Are You a Candidate for Veneers?

Veneers — like any procedure — require the right framework for success. We must do our due diligence to ensure you are a good candidate for veneers. Before recommending veneers, we like to make sure that you:
Our practitioners can help improve the health of your teeth and gums before veneer treatment. However, if veneers are not an appropriate treatment for you, we can recommend other options to give you a stunning smile.

Caring for Your New Veneers

Veneers require upkeep to maintain their perfect condition and prolong their lifespan. We will book a follow-up appointment following veneer placement to ensure you are happy with the results.

Help keep your veneers looking better for longer by keeping them clean, brushing twice a day and flossing once daily as you would with natural teeth. If you chew hard objects like the ends of pens, bite your nails, or use your teeth to open containers, you will need to cease these habits. We also recommend a mouthguard at night in case you start clenching or grinding your teeth. Veneers can also become stained over time, so try to avoid coffee, tea, red wine, smoking, and other consumables that will cause staining.

If you have any questions or concerns about veneer care, please get in touch with the practice.

A Radiant Smile is One Treatment Away

Veneers are an excellent way to put your best foot forward and make a lasting impression. The smile you have now is not the smile you have to keep; elevate the appearance of your teeth with a cosmetic dental treatment, such as veneers.
