All Tooth Stains Are Not Created Equal

Daly City Teeth Bleaching Will any of our locally advertised Daly City teeth whitening options remove the stains from your teeth?

The effectiveness of teeth bleaching in San Mateo depends partly on the types of stains.

Extrinsic tooth stains are the easiest to remove. These surface stains have not yet penetrated through the enamel into the dentin. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and beverages like blueberries, carrots, coffee, red wine, and cola. And nicotine is no better for your smile than it is for your lungs.

Unfortunately, even if you avoid these common teeth stainers, your teeth will become discolored over time. Like gray hair, wrinkles, and memory lapses, a dull smile is an inevitable part of aging for San Francisco men and women.

Intrinsic tooth stains develop from the inside out. Tooth injury and tetracycline are the usual culprits. Intrinsic stains are more difficult to remove completely, but it is possible to lighten them with professional tooth whitening available at your Pacifica cosmetic dental office.

If your teeth are stained, whether from coffee, tetracycline, or excessive fluoride, call Kenneth Hovden DDS at 650-755-6000. We have treated many Half Moon Bay patients with extreme tooth discoloration.

It is never too late or too early to brighten your smile.

Daly City seniors can take years off their appearance by restoring the youthful white smile they once enjoyed. San Francisco teens and young adults with surface stains can prevent them from becoming intrinsic stains with San Mateo tooth bleaching.

Speaking of the younger set, did you know that people who drink energy drinks are at risk for many dental problems?

Bright Smiles In San Francisco

Professional Teeth Whitening For Bright Smiles In San Francisco

Hello San Francisco! Do you want brighter, whiter teeth? Most San Francisco folks notice their teeth dulling as the years go by, but some foods, drinks, and even mouthwashes can stain teeth at any age.

OTC tooth whitening products like kits, strips, or toothpastes may slightly lighten stains, but for a truly brilliant smile Kenneth Hovden can help!

If you have dental veneers, bonding, or bridges, teeth whitening bleach will not lighten the stains and your whitened natural teeth will make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Kenneth Hovden DDS, we can recommend new dental work, including veneers or bondings, if these have aged and discolored.

Remember, anything that can stain a white tee shirt can stain teeth.

Fortunately, brushing after meals can keep stains at bay, however with acidic foods or drinks, just rinse your mouth with water. Brushing right away can erode enamel, causing thinner teeth as we age.

San Francisco in-office teeth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home whitening kits are also available at Kenneth Hovden DDS and can produce the best results over time.

For more information on getting a younger and brighter smile, contact our professional for a smile brightening consultation today!

Tooth Whitening Dentistry In Daly City

Tooth Whitening Dentistry In San Mateo

Tooth whitening has really taken off in Daly City. It has become a popular dental procedure and can provide excellent results if done properly.

There are a lot of options when it comes to teeth whitening. You can choose from a selection of over-the-counter options that you can get at your local pharmacy, or can go to a professional to get a complete tooth whitening solution.

It is a good idea to consult with your dentist before a tooth bleaching, regardless of whether you choose to use an over-the-counter product. Your dentist will be able to help you understand the results you can expect, and can help recommend a product that will work for you.

There are many variables when it comes to tooth whitening. The color of your teeth at the beginning of your treatment will make a difference for your ending result. Different tooth whitening treatments will each produce a different result. Your Daly City dentist has experience with tooth coloration and the types of treatments available.

In many cases, your Daly City dentist will be able to provide you with a tooth whitening solution that you can take home with you. In some cases, your Daly City dentist may recommend a professional treatment that is done at the dentist’s office.

Professional tooth whitening can produce dramatic results in a single treatment, and is often done over a few treatments.

Tooth whitening is less expensive than it was in the earlier days of tooth whitening technology. Today, tooth whitening treatments are very affordable, and don’t take the time they used to.

If you are interested in a tooth whitening consultation in the Daly City area, please call Kenneth Hovden DDS and make an appointment to see me. I will be happy to give you a check up, assess your tooth color, and recommend cosmetic dental tooth whitening treatments that may be right for you.

Daly City Whiter Smiles

San Francisco Teeth Whitening Wishing for a Daly City whiter smile but not sure how to get it? New to California smile tooth whitening lingo? At Kenneth Hovden DDS, we educate clients on the variety of San Francisco affordable teeth whiting treatments; from whitening trays to San Mateo teeth bleaching to San Francisco opalescence whitening. We do Daly City smile whitening every day.

Almost every toothpaste claims to whiten teeth, but as we age our teeth gradually turn yellow or gray, despite all the whitening toothpastes we use regularly. Tooth enamel, while one of the hardest substances in the body, is porous. Over time, the food and drinks that come in contact with our teeth cause staining and discoloration. You probably have already discovered that a toothbrush cannot clean these microscopic pores.

Carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide are the two main teeth whitening ingredients. They can penetrate the outer layer of your teeth to remove the build-up, and help restore whitening to teeth. Call Kenneth Hovden DDS at 650-755-6000 to schedule an appointment and we will explain the difference between these tooth bleaching ingredients and how they may affect your Daly City smile whitening results.

San Francisco at-home tooth bleaching products are probably not a good choice if you have crowns or veneers. You could end up with extremely uneven results or possible damage to your existing California cosmetic dentistry.

We know the best Daly City teeth bleaching options and can recommend the perfect white smile solution for you.

At Kenneth Hovden DDS, we hope to see you soon. Give us a call at 650-755-6000.
