At Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City, we create perfect smiles for our smile makeover patients.
Here are some of the cosmetic dental procedures we use in smile makeovers.
Dental implants are the ultimate tooth restoration. A dental implant consists of a metal post that is inserted into your jawbone. The post replaces the root of the missing tooth.
After a few months, it fuses with your jawbone to provide a stable foundation for an artificial tooth. For most patients it is the preferred restoration. Implants can also be used to attach dentures and partial dentures for innovative no-slip implant/denture combos.
A mainstay of cosmetic dentistry, dental crowns are more beautiful than ever. New fabrication technologies and materials have improved the aesthetics and durability of this restorative option.
A veneer is a more conservative treatment than a full crown. This is a good choice for men and women whose teeth are structurally sound but have unsightly issues such as discoloration, chips, cracks, or imperfect shape.
Inlays and onlays (indirect fillings) are designed and developed using dental CAD/CAM software. These fillings are strong, attractive, and precisely fitted to the cavity.
Teeth whitening is the crowning touch for a sensational smile. (It’s the only thing you need if you are fortunate enough to have perfectly-shaped and aligned teeth.)
