Veneers  Redwood City, CA

Dental veneers are a great option for patients who desire to improve and correct the appearance of chipped, gapped or misshapen teeth. Generally made of either porcelain or composite resin, veneers will serve as thin protective coverings that are placed over the front of your teeth. According to the needs of each individual patient, this treatment can be tailored to fix a variety of dental issues, including:

  • Heavily stained teeth
  • Worn or chipped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Unevenly spaced or gapped teeth

Often used to perfect and enhance your smile, veneers are either made of porcelain or resin to match your natural tooth color. Porcelain veneers are recommended for their stain-resistant material, which can preserve the appearance and brightness of your smile for many years. These veneers appear translucent, and their color is well suited to match the natural shade of your tooth enamel. Likewise, resin veneers can be customized to blend in with your other natural teeth.

Depending on your smile, our dentists can help determine which type of veneer is best for you. To learn more about receiving your own customized dental veneers, we invite you to contact us today. We look forward to hearing from you!

Porcelain Crowns  Redwood City, CA

Porcelain Crowns

Our dental team works diligently to provide you a smile that feels comfortable while still looking natural and healthy. With porcelain dental crowns in Redwood City, California, our team can provide you aesthetically pleasing restorations that repair the damaged portions of your teeth. If you would like to learn more about dental crowns, we welcome you to contact us today at 650-716-2500 and set up a visit with our dentists, Dr. Donald Hermansen and Dr. Derrell Washington.

Dental crowns are a highly recommended option of treatment for patients with significantly damaged or decayed teeth. A crown is made of a tooth-shaped cap that is customized to fit securely over the entire tooth and restore a natural-looking size and shape to the tooth. These crowns are commonly used for the following:

  • Treating tooth decay
  • Restoring broken or worn teeth
  • Holding dental bridges in place
  • Covering misshapen or discolored teeth
  • Covering dental implants or root canals

By covering your original tooth with a strong dental crown, you can achieve better protection for your tooth and also refine the appearance of your smile. Dental crowns are made with either metal, ceramic, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. Gold, among other types of metal, is often used to make metal crowns and is known for its long-lasting capabilities. For natural-looking restorations, porcelain crowns are more popular due to their tooth-colored appearance. Ceramic crowns are an option for patients seeking both durable and natural-looking restorations. They are often a viable choice for restorations to the front teeth.

You can learn more about the various types of dental crowns today by contacting us or scheduling a visit at our practice. We look forward to hearing from you!
