Lighten Up!

Lighten Up In San Francisco

Do you think your teeth are too stained for teeth whitening to have any effect? Think again. At Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City, we whiten smiles for our patients every day.

There are two basic types of teeth stains: extrinstic, and intrinsic.

  • Extrinsic stains are on the surfaces of your teeth: discolorations caused by dark colored foods and drinks, smoking, and normal aging.
  • Intrinsic stains form on the inside but can be seen from the outside. Tetracycline, excessive fluoride, trauma, and aging can cause intrinsic staining. Though these stains are harder to remove, many patients with intrinsic staining can whiten their teeth with take-home whitening kits.

At Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City, we lighten up smiles with teeth whitening every day. People from San Mateo, Pacifica, and Half Moon Bay come to us for whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. Call our office to find out what we can  do for your smile!
