What Does A Missing Tooth Say About You?

San Mateo Dental Implants For Missing Teeth When you meet someone in San Francisco who is missing a front tooth, what does that say to you? Do you wonder if they were in an accident? Do you automatically start making assumptions about their income, level of education and overall physical health?

Though it is extremely unfair, we are often judged (and misjudged) by our appearance. Even if a person is impeccably dressed and groomed, a missing front tooth detracts from the overall pleasing impression.

Here is a personal story from a woman who lost a tooth:

I lost my job and along with it my dental insurance, then a month later, one of my front teeth. It has been very hard to find work…. and I know the missing tooth has cost me several jobs.”

A missing tooth can be a big deal.

Dental implants not only restore oral health, they restore self-confidence. Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. Studies have shown that after more than 20 years, the vast majority of dental implants placed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons continue to function at peak performance. If properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Dental implants are one of the procedures we routinely perform at Kenneth Hovden DDS to help our San Francisco clients regain the beautiful smile they once had. Not all cosmetic dental procedures are as extreme as teeth implants. There are many minimally-invasive remedies for unattractive smiles.

Porcelain veneers instantly provide a perfect, gleaming tooth surface for San Francisco clients with broken or discolored teeth. Tooth whitening is a quick and affordable dentistry procedure in San Mateo that achieves dramatic results without requiring the removal of any tooth structure. Call Kenneth Hovden DDS at 650-755-6000 for more information about smile design and restorative dentistry.

Are You Ready to Smile Again, South San Francisco?

Cosmetic Dentistry In South San Francisco Helps You Smile Again Most South San Francisco residents have plenty of things to smile about.

However, there are some Daly City and San Mateo County area folks who avoid smiling at all costs. Are you one of those people who cover their mouth when they laugh? Do you keep your mouth closed when someone takes a picture of you? Have you been hiding unsightly teeth for years?

It’s time to take care of those tooth problems and get a new lease on life.

Dr. Kenneth Hovden at Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City can make it happen!

If you are missing one or more teeth, and live in the South San Francisco area, talk to us about dental implants. A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that includes both root and crown. Because it is anchored into the jawbone, it looks and feels like a natural tooth.

Are your teeth yellow or gray? Try professional teeth whitening at our Daly City dental practice and experience an instant transformation.

Many of your South San Francisco area friends and neighbors have benefited from porcelain veneers. They correct several types of imperfections and can be applied in just one visit to our cosmetic dental office.

Missing Teeth In San Mateo County? Dentures And Implants Restore Smiles

Dental Implants San Mateo County

If you have had years of dental problems or are embarrassed by your teeth, our professional team at Kenneth Hovden DDS can help you find the restorative dentistry procedure right for you. You could be a candidate for complete or partial dentures or dental implants.

A removable replacement for missing teeth, dentures can be made in advance and positioned as soon as the natural teeth are removed. Our Kenneth Hovden DDS dental lab creates dentures that look just like natural teeth: attractive, healthy teeth.

If you still have some healthy, natural teeth, you can benefit from dentures without having your healthy teeth extracted.

Partial dentures fill in the gaps, replacing missing teeth to complete a smile. Partial dentures can prevent natural teeth from moving. Many San Mateo County dental practices can complete these procedures in one day.

Many dental insurance providers cover most or all of the cost of dentures. Call us at Kenneth Hovden DDS and we can help you find out if your dental insurance covers dentures.

Another alternative for San Mateo County people with missing teeth is to receive dental implants. A dental implant is a permanent tooth restoration that is anchored into the jawbone, actually replacing both the root and crown of the tooth. Dental implants have many advantages, such as preventing jaw bone recession which can occur when natural teeth are removed. However, not all Daly City area cosmetic dentistry patients are good candidates for implants. Call Kenneth Hovden DDS at 650-755-6000 for a dental implant consultation.

Dental implants can also be used to anchor a removable denture. The denture is ‘snapped on’ or attached to the implants for no-slip confidence.

The combination denture/implant smile restoration solution is being used successfully by many San Mateo County dentists. It is usually more affordable than dental implant replacements for several natural teeth.

Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health, improving your ability to eat and speak. If you are embarrassed to smile or laugh, it’s time to bring back your beautiful smile!

Wear A Crown In South San Francisco

Dental Crowns In South San Francisco

Some Daly City residents who have a weak or broken tooth may want to research dental crowns as a solution to improve their smile and overall oral health. A crown is really a cap or covering that is tooth-shaped and when it is in place, it will cover the portion of the covered tooth that is above the gum line.

Crowns can be made of metals, resin, ceramic, porcelain, or a porcelain-fused-to-metal material. Your Daly City area dentist will usually put in a temporary crown while a permanent crown is being created especially for your mouth in a dental laboratory.

Dental crowns have been used successfully in Daly City cosmetic dentistry for decades.

Many San Mateo County, South San Francisco, and Daly City dentists use crowns when performing smile makeovers to cover patient’s discolored or poorly shaped teeth. Strong, natural-looking crowns are also used with dental implants.

If you think a dental crown may be right for you, check with your South San Francisco dentist. Or, if you are searching for quality dental care in the South San Francisco area, call us here at Kenneth Hovden DDS. We are located in Daly City and have been serving the greater Daly City area since 1981. We are currently accepting new patients at our state-of-the art, yet warm and comfortable dental office.

Call us at 650-755-6000 and our professional staff can answer any questions you have about teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, enamel shaping, or any other cosmetic dental, general oral health, or dental financing questions.


Affordable Daly City Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry Daly City Will your dental insurance cover cosmetic dentistry services? Many Daly City dentistry clients assume their dental insurance won’t cover any cosmetic dental procedures. This is probably true for teeth whitening or first time dental bonding. However, many dental insurance plans and dental supplemental plans cover orthodontia and any treatment needed to repair damage from an injury. Medical insurance and worker’s compensation plans may also cover injury treatment.

Some dental insurance plans cover replacement porcelain veneers in certain circumstances. Check with your carrier for benefit specifics if you need replacement veneers due to deterioration. We can then discuss dental treatment options such as replacement veneers or porcelain crowns. When the work is completed, we may be able to help you submit your dental claim form if your plan requires one.

If you are in need of any kind of dental treatment; from a cleaning to major restorative dental treatment, come in to Kenneth Hovden DDS on 901 Campus Dr Ste 202 in Daly City. You can meet our professional team, undergo a thorough evaluation and discuss financing options. Even if you do not have dental insurance, let’s talk. Top quality Daly City dental treatment is a wise investment and may be more affordable than you think.

Dr. Kenneth Hovden of Kenneth Hovden DDS has been proudly serving Daly City and South San Francisco residents since 1981. Kenneth Hovden DDS is a network dental provider for many California dental insurance plans.

Kenneth Hovden DDS on Jaw Bone Deterioration

Dental Implants San Mateo County To remain dense, your jaw bone requires the continual stimulation and pressure of chewing, biting and talking. Each of your teeth has a root structure attached to the surrounding bone material. As each tooth absorbs the forces of everyday mouth function, it stimulates the bone to which the root is attached.

When a tooth is extracted, the jaw bone that previously surrounded the root structure begins to recede. Though tooth extraction is often the only possible treatment for our San Mateo County patients with tooth damage beyond repair, every effort should be made to preserve the root structure.

Fortunately, dental implants provide a new root which keeps the surrounding bone healthy and strong. A dental implant consists of a titanium post which is placed in the jaw bone. It replaces the original root and eventually integrates into the surrounding bone. After the implant has been placed and the surrounding bone has healed and meshed with the implant, a post is inserted into the implant. The new artificial teeth, or dental crowns, are then attached to the post. Implant restoration is a safe and effective treatment for tooth loss.

To learn more about dental implants, call Kenneth Hovden at 650-755-6000. The friendly professionals at Kenneth Hovden DDS provide world-class cosmetic dental treatment for patients in San Mateo County and the surrounding areas.

Dr. Kenneth Hovden’s experience, ability, and commitment to dental excellence result in successful outcomes daily for our dentistry clients. Each team member at Kenneth Hovden DDS shares Dr. Hovden’s passion for success.

For many San Mateo County dental patients, success is a routine check-up that reveals healthy teeth and no cavities. For our cosmetic dental clients, success is a stunning smile makeover using veneers, teeth whitening and tooth-colored fillings. For our San Mateo County patients with a missing tooth, dental implants are used to successfully restore their smile. It is exciting to see implant recipients smile for the first time after receiving their new tooth implant.

We also enjoy completing successful tooth-straightening procedures for youth and adults. Though these transformations take longer than one-visit smile re-designs, the results are no less incredible.

Daly City Cosmetic Dental Artistry

Cosmetic Dentistry Daly City Daly City cosmetic dentistry is part science and part art.

I’m Dr. Kenneth Hovden of Kenneth Hovden DDS and enjoy using my extensive dental training and specialized artistic skills to design treatment plans unique to each of my Daly City cosmetic dental clients.

In order to achieve an attractive, yet natural looking result, I do much more than recommend specific procedures. I consider the shape, alignment, color and condition of the teeth. In order to create a balanced look, the facial shape and coloring is taken into account. The restorative dentistry client’s age, health condition and lifestyle all influence the plan.

At Kenneth Hovden DDS, there is no one size fits all treatment plan.

My artistic abilities have been perfected over several years of creating smile transformations for my Daly City area cosmetic dentistry clients. I am constantly receiving the latest training in new techniques and materials.

Even fairly recent cosmetic dental procedures such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers have advanced considerably. Dental implants are a truly remarkable solution for our dental clients who have lost one or more teeth.

I would love to design a personalized smile makeover for you. When the work has been completed and you are enjoying your new look, it will only be obvious to those who see you all the time. Others will assume you have always been blessed with a naturally beautiful and healthy smile.
