Is your smile beginning to look a little dull? Has its luster faded over the years? Maybe you’ve got a chipped tooth, or maybe a couple. You don’t have to live with these imperfections if you don’t want to. At Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City, porcelain veneers can mask these and other dental flaws, leaving you with a magnificent smile.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic or composite resin. We custom fit veneers to go over the front part of your teeth, giving your smile an attractive, completely natural appearance. You can use veneers to fix stained or chipped teeth, slightly crooked teeth, or abnormally spaced teeth.
Veneers are one of the most popular options available in modern cosmetic dentistry. They are very strong, look completely natural, and are made to match the color and shape of your teeth.
One caveat: a thin layer of enamel must be removed from the front of each tooth being covered with a veneer, in order for them to properly adhere. Once they’re cemented in place, they are permanent. But once they are in place, you’ll have the best-looking teeth of anyone you know.
