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.

A New Reason To Eat More Fish In San Francisco

Your San Francisco Dentist Offers Dental Health And Diet Ideas Hello San Francisco cosmetic dental blog visitors, welcome to the Kenneth Hovden DDS blog. I am Dr. Kenneth Hovden.

I came across an interesting dental article on the Web MD Health News site the other day. The article is entitled ‘Fatty Fish, Nuts May Prevent Gum Disease.’ Author Jennifer Warner explains that a recent study links diets high in polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) with a lower risk of periodontitis.

Gum disease is a common dental issue for many San Francisco area folks. When gum tissue pulls away from a tooth, it forms a pocket. (You know what they say about Nature abhorring a vacuum.) This pocket is a warm, moist place for bacteria to flourish. If periodontitis goes untreated, the tooth and jaw bone are at risk. During dental examinations, I carefully measure gumline pockets and examine all teeth for gum disease.

“Researchers found that people whose diets were rich in PUFAs were as much as 30 percent less likely to have gum disease than those who ate little or none of this type of fat.”

Foods high in PUFAs include salmon, tuna, trout, mackerel, sardines, herring. Oils high in PUFAs include safflower oil, soybean oil, corn oil, sunflower oil, and margarines made with the previously mentioned oils. Almonds, pine nuts, walnuts, pecans, brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and flax seeds are high PUFA nuts/seeds.

I don’t know many families in the Daly City area that regularly eat mackerel and herring. Maybe some of us could benefit from becoming more adventurous when it comes to seafood.

The possible prevention of gum disease is not the only reason to eat high PUFA foods. These foods pack a nutritional punch and have myriad health benefits. The next time you are stocking up at Costco, you may want to add some salmon and walnuts to your list.

It is important to understand that diet alone will not treat or prevent gum disease, however it may be an additional tool for maintaining healthy teeth and gums.

If you have not been to your San Francisco dentist in a while, I urge you to schedule an examination and cleaning today. We are currently taking new San Francisco area cosmetic and restorative dentistry clients at Kenneth Hovden DDS.

If you are interested in teeth whitening, smile makeovers, tooth-colored fillings or invisible braces, call us today to schedule an appointment.

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.

Love Your Smile in Daly City

Cosmetic Dentistry - Love Your Daly City Smile There is nothing like bright white teeth that light up a person’s whole face when they smile and laugh. No one has to settle for dull, yellow teeth.

This is a great time for Daly City men, women and teens to get a deep teeth cleaning and tooth whitening at Kenneth Hovden DDS. With a deep cleaning followed by teeth bleaching, your teeth will feel as good as they look.

If you have an important upcoming event such as a wedding, party or formal family portrait sitting, a smile makeover will give you extra confidence as you pose for photos (even close-ups).

Daly City teeth whitening can whiten teeth beyond their natural shade. At our Daly City cosmetic dentistry practice, we don’t use a conventional shade chart for our whitening clients anymore. You have probably seen the porcelain tabs in graduated shades that cosmetic dentists use to determine appropriate, yet natural looking, shades for tooth restorations. We now use a shade guide with levels significantly whiter than the guides we have used in the past. Zoom whitening is not a gimmick; it is safe and incredibly effective. South San Francisco area tooth bleaching clients can maintain a white shade that equals the brightness of the ‘tooth’ models you see in dental marketing.

Daly City tooth whitening following twice-yearly cleanings is the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedure. Tooth bleaching in Daly City is comparable to the cost of a professional hair weaving and cut, but when you consider the transformation; there is no comparison! Flash your gorgeous, sparkling smile, and no one will even notice your hair.

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.

How Do You Measure Success in San Mateo County?

Cosmetic Dentistry San Mateo County At Kenneth Hovden DDS, we are all about success. 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. In fact, our San Mateo County Invisalign patients probably appreciate their straight teeth and beautiful smile more than any of our other patients.

Success sometimes means removing tetracycline stains for a San Mateo County teeth whitening patient who has been hiding his/her smile for years. Sometimes, success is as simple as helping a nervous patient feel relaxed and comfortable during their visit to our San Mateo County family dental office.

What do you desire for your smile? At Kenneth Hovden DDS, our success depends on your complete smile satisfaction.

Restoring Smiles at Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City

Restorative Dentistry Daly City A great smile is essential for putting your best face forward. At Kenneth Hovden DDS, we not only restore teeth to their original condition; we make many Daly City smiles better than they ever were before!

Some patients have only a few problems they wish to correct. Perhaps one or two teeth are misshapen and seem out of alignment. If the problem teeth are only superficially crooked—meaning they do not need to be moved into place with orthodontia—porcelain veneers are the answer. Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells that are attached to the front of one of more teeth. They are extremely versatile and can correct shape, color, or both.

Another plus: porcelain veneers are essentially non-invasive and do not affect healthy tooth structure.

Some of our Daly City area dental patients were happy with their smile in years past but now want to bring up the whiteness a notch or two. Teeth whitening is a popular procedure for our Daly City cosmetic dentistry clients. We provide a variety of teeth whitening options for every type of smile. If you are ready to brighten your smile, come on in; we’ll help you find the best tooth whitening system for your smile.
