Many of our dental patients at Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City have experienced a boost in self-confidence, thanks to cosmetic dentistry. From teeth whitening to dental implants or porcelain veneers, we have procedures to correct just about any imperfection.
Teeth whitening is one of the most requested procedures we provide. Everyone seems ready to get the awesome smile that comes with white teeth. A simple stroll among the dental products at your grocery store gives you an idea of how many whitening products there are. But none of them can compare to the professional whitening you’ll get from the dentist.
We offer our patients Zoom! teeth whitening. It’s an in-office procedure that takes about an hour but produces dramatic results. With dental-grade hydrogen peroxide gels and LED lamps to activate them, it penetrates deeply into your teeth enamel to bleach out years of deep stains and discolorations.
Porcelain veneers are another option. They are thin shells that are custom-made for each patient, and attached to the front surfaces of the teeth. The result is immediate smile transformation, but veneers can also be used for slight orthodontic adjustments.
A dental implant is probably the most effective way to replacing a missing tooth. Unlike a bridge, the implant is attached directly to the patient’s jaw. It is a titanium post, upon which the tooth restoration sits. When the procedure is complete, it functions just like a natural tooth. And because they are implanted into the jaw, they prevent bone loss.
