4 Smile Boosters

Half Moon Bay cosmetic dental and tooth implants

Hi, my name is Dr. Kenneth Hovden. My dental practice, Kenneth Hovden DDS, has been serving the Daly City, California area since 1981. Today in my San Francisco dental blog, I would like to highlight four ways you can improve your smile.

1. Teeth Whitening is quick and non-invasive. External tooth whitening occurs when teeth whitening agents bleach the teeth directly. This can be done in your home or in the office of your dentist.

2. Dental Implants are another common procedure that many Daly City residents seek. A dental implant is secured into the jawbone to replace the roots of a lost tooth. A crown is then attached to the implant to replace the missing tooth. Along with improving appearance and restoring tooth function, the dental implant does double-duty by helping to keep bone support.

3. Dental Bonding can be done with various materials such as porcelains and composite resins. With recent advances in cosmetic dental care, these materials can more precisely replicate natural tooth structure and natural appearance. This procedure is commonly used to fix chipped or cracked teeth.

4. Periodontal Plastic Surgery is an outstanding solution for gum recession and cosmetic irregularities. Gum tissue is removed or added to give the appropriate framework to the teeth.

I hope this post has helped you to get better acquainted with some highly effective cosmetic dentistry treatments. A combination of procedures can be used to give Daly City dental patients a complete smile redesign.
