Tooth Whitening and Your Dentist

Daly City Teeth Whitening and Your Dentist

Tooth whitening has become one of the most popular dental procedures in California. It seems that everyone in Daly City is whitening their teeth to help their smiles look younger and brighter. Many consumers in the San Francisco area are turning to over-the-counter solutions to whiten their teeth, however their can be dangers and pitfalls to this approach.

Here is some basic advice on teeth whitening from Kenneth Hovden DDS:

First, we encourage you to visit our office in Daly City before starting a tooth whitening system. It is a good idea to have your teeth checked and analyzed before starting a tooth whitening program. Tooth whitening is not for everyone, and depends on your dental history.

Dr. Hovden at Kenneth Hovden DDS can help you determine whether your teeth can be whitened safely and effectively. We can also recommend tooth whitening solutions that will work best for you. Kenneth Hovden DDS is a good cosmetic dentist to start for this important decision.

There are many pitfalls to be aware of when whitening your teeth. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products available in the Daly City area will provide varying degrees of effectiveness on your teeth. If used improperly, tooth whitening solutions can cause problems including tooth sensitivity, over whitening, damage to your tooth enamel, and irregular coloration. Whitening too much can even have a reverse effect, making your teeth look gray.  Additionally some stains cannot be removed with whitening and need porcelain veneers.

Most tooth whitening product manufacturers recommend that you visit your local Daly City dentist when things go wrong with your over-the-counter tooth whitening solution. We recommend you begin with the professionals at Kenneth Hovden DDS to get started with a tooth whitening solution that will give you the best tooth whitening results.

Our office is located at 901 Campus Dr Ste 202, Daly City, California 94015. Please give us a call or stop by to make an appointment to discuss your tooth whitening plans. We are eager to help you make the best decision about your tooth whitening.

Our professional is available to discuss tooth whitening solutions, explain tooth whitening options, and check your teeth to make sure you will get the tooth whitening results you want.

I look forward to seeing your beautiful bright smile.

Remake Your South San Francisco Smile With Bonding And Shaping

Cosmetic Dentistry South San Francisco

Hello friends of Kenneth Hovden DDS! When you think about getting into shape, your teeth are probably not the first body parts that come to mind. But your South San Francisco dentist may be able to improve your smile with bonding and enamel shaping, and you won’t even have to join a local gym!

I’m Dr. Kenneth Hovden, an experienced general and cosmetic dentist, and today on my dental blog I want to explain a little more about these relatively conservative cosmetic dentistry procedures that can improve your smile without major remodeling.

Bonding is a great way to improve the appearance of teeth that are cracked, stained, broken, chipped, or have large spaces between them. When teeth are bonded, your South San Francisco dentist applies tooth-colored materials, and “bonds” them to the tooth surface.

Usually used in conjunction with bonding, enamel shaping is the process of modifying teeth by contouring or removing enamel. Something my South San Francisco area patients love about enamel shaping is that it’s quick, painless, and the often dramatic results are immediate.

If you are looking for quality, affordable South San Francisco dental care, give us a call at 650-755-6000. Our professional dental team would be happy to answer any questions you have about any of our cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers and tooth whitening. We would love to explain the latest advances in restorative dentistry, sleep apnea and snoring treatment, and TMJ treatment and let you see our gallery of before and after photos of smile makeovers.

If it has been a while since you have treated your teeth to a deep cleaning, call today to book an appointment with the most gentle yet thorough dental hygienists in South San Francisco!
