Here at Kenneth Hovden DDS, we approach all your oral care needs from two separate angles—what we can do in our dental practice and what you can do at home.
For example, tooth whitening and correcting discoloration can be treated in our office or at home. Here in the office there are safe and effective methods for bleaching yellowed or stained tooth enamel. At-home whitening methods are also safe and effective and sometimes less expensive.
Additionally, we guide you regarding food and drink choices that can influence your whitened smile. Be aware of staining agents such as coffee, tea, tobacco and soda. We understand that eliminating these items altogether is not an easy lifestyle change. Nor do we expect it.
Education and precaution can make a big difference. Rinsing your mouth out with water after drinking a dark or sugary beverage can cut down on the contact your teeth have with it and help neutralize the acids. Prolonged exposure to sugar can lead to buildup of plaque and tartar and prolonged exposure to staining substances can negate the results of teeth whitening.
If you are interested in making improvements to your smile and creating a more confident appearance for your professional career or personal relationships, please pick up the phone and contact the extraordinary staff at Kenneth Hovden DDS today 650-755-6000. Dr. Kenneth Hovden, DDS, takes pride in providing professional care and expertise when treating patients.
Come discover the personal attention with TMJ treatment, the patient and steady hand with Invisalign, the wise and thorough instruction relating to restorative dentistry. Once you’ve scheduled a consultation, expect expert guidance that will make your daily oral care and lifestyle choices productive and meaningful.
When it comes to hygiene and healthy teeth we are a practice that wants to see you as little as possible. (It’s not that we don’t love you—we just want you to have a healthy smile!) If we only see you twice a year for regular checkups then we’ve done our job.

Dr. Hovden provides the full spectrum of dental services from cosmetic dentistry to porcelain veneers to dental implants.
