Hi, I’m Dr. Kenneth Hovden with Kenneth Hovden DDS located at 901 Campus Dr Ste 202 in Daly City. The truth is, practicing dentistry has been a rewarding decision for me.

Between restorative and cosmetic dentistry, I am able to create unforgettable smiles for patients throughout Half Moon Bay, San Mateo, and Pacifica that beautify as well as satisfy. I am amazed with the changes for good I see in a person’s life. Check out my site at https://www.cosmeticimplantdentistryca.com/dental-services/.

I’m able to meet and discuss what is required, what is desired and what is possible for your smile before we create an individualized plan of action. Call to find out about the cost of various dental services and to schedule a consultation at 650-755-6000. I aim for competitive costs when it comes to smile redesigns through cosmetic dental procedures and restorative dentistry. Big or small, the procedures are essential to our patients and their self confidence and are therefore of the utmost importance to myself and my staff.

We’ve been around since 1981. Over the years we have performed many, many procedures involving cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers, and dental implants as well as educating and guiding patients to better hygiene and understanding of their oral needs and possibilities. That freely revealed smile of childhood can be restored to you.

Restorative dentistry ranges from simple fillings to bridges to dental implant support to chipped tooth restoration. Tooth restoration has many caveats that require consideration and experience. I look forward to meeting your needs on your terms. I believe we will get along wonderfully. See you soon!

Artistic Smile Masterpieces At Kenneth Hovden DDS

Artistic Smile Masterpieces At Kenneth Hovden DDS

Hello Daly City friends of Kenneth Hovden DDS! Thanks for stopping by the ultimate cosmetic dentistry blog. Today we are talking about personal transformation. Many Daly City men and women want to reinvent themselves in at least one aspect of their life.

Some San Francisco people are training for a new career. Some San Mateo men and women have made a healthy lifestyle a priority by making better food choices and working out on a regular basis. Some Pacifica people are dedicating more attention to their personal relationships.

At Kenneth Hovden DDS, Dr. Hovden skillfully uses advanced cosmetic dentistry to transform lucky patients with complete smile makeovers.

A comprehensive smile redesign involves more than applying four or six porcelain veneers to the upper front teeth. Though veneers can dramatically improve a smile, a complete smile makeover is a total smile transformation.

Dr. Hovden evaluates the condition, size, shape, alignment, and color of the teeth. These elements are created, meticulously refined, and integrated in perfect harmony. The cosmetic dental treatments Dr. Hovden adeptly uses are dental crowns and bridges, inlays/onlays, short term braces, cosmetic bonding, crown lengthening, gum contouring, teeth whitening, and dental implants.

Like any artistic masterpiece, a perfect smile is far more than the sum of its parts.

If you have a vision for your unforgettable smile, it can become a reality at Kenneth Hovden DDS. Schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation today by calling 650-755-6000 or visiting https://www.cosmeticimplantdentistryca.com/dental-services/.

Some people don’t feel that their smile is an asset, so they do their best to keep it hidden. Pictures, funny movies, jokes, hilarious internet videos – none of these can coax a smile or laugh. If this person sounds familiar, then maybe you would like some information about complete smile makeovers.

Don’t be embarrassed! Plenty of San Mateo, Pacifica, and Half Moon Bay residents are hesitant to show their smile. The good news is that there is help.

Here at Kenneth Hovden DDS we provide cosmetic dentistry procedures for our San Francisco area patients who have issues such as a previous mouth injury, tooth discoloration, poor spacing, chipped teeth, tetracycline stains, crooked teeth, or missing teeth.

Now is the time to get the confident smile that you’ve always wanted!

Many patients start with teeth whitening. This gets them on their way to a brighter smile. It’s a simple procedure, but the results are truly dramatic.

Other procedures that improve the look of your teeth and/or your oral health include dental crowns, dental implants, veneers, enamel shaping, gum contouring, bonding, and more! We can also refer you to an experienced San Mateo, Pacifica, or Half Moon Bay orthodontist if necessary.

I’m Dr. Kenneth Hovden and I am passionate about helping my patients enjoy healthy mouths and beautiful smiles. If you would like to know more about smile makeovers in the San Francisco area, give us a call at 650-755-6000.

Can I Objectively Evaluate My Smile?

esthetic smile design San Mateo

It is no secret that a beautiful, pleasing, healthy smile can be your most highly regarded physical attribute. After all, people notice your smile first thing. How do you know if your smile is detracting from your appearance?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; if you look at your smile in the mirror and believe it is unattractive, it doesn’t really matter what anybody else thinks. But what if you are not sure?

There are many problems that are generally considered to detract from beautiful smiles. Missing teeth is a biggie. People who are missing teeth in the back of the mouth may mistakenly believe that the gap doesn’t show. They are usually wrong. When smiling, talking, laughing, or eating, a missing tooth definitely shows – even if the missing tooth is the very last molar.

Yellow or gray teeth diminish the appeal of a smile – even one that is perfectly healthy and aligned – and crooked teeth are frequently considered unattractive.

There are a few unique smile characteristics that some people proudly show off and others wish to change. For instance, a gap between the two front teeth can become your trademark. True Blood star Anna Paquin, actor Woody Harrelson, and singer Seal have retained their spaces. Perhaps the most famous gap-toothed smile belongs to seventy year-old model Lauren Hutton who has proudly flashed it throughout her fifty-year career. Other celebrities such as Zac Efron, Tom Cruise, and Keith Urban weren’t happy with gaps so they transformed their smiles with industry-leading cosmetic dentistry.

If you want an objective aesthetic evaluation of your smile, how can you do this? You can’t see your smile from every angle when you look in the mirror. If you want an expert opinion on the attractiveness of your smile, talk to a cosmetic dentist. There are a surprising number of design principals that are used in cosmetic dental smile makeovers. These include size, shape, alignment, proportion, color, and translucency. Furthermore, cosmetic dentists also consider the characteristics of the gums, lips, and facial features.

When you have a cosmetic dental consultation, you will be able to see how the vital elements work together to create a natural-looking, memorable smile. Bottom line? If you want to change your smile, you can! Schedule a consultation today by calling 650-755-6000.


The Gift Of Oral Health In San Francisco

The Gift Of Oral Health In San Francisco

Many dental patients in the San Mateo, Pacifica, and Half Moon Bay areas may wonder why, with all the advances in dental medicine, we still send you home with a complimentary toothbrush and roll of floss. It’s true, they do seem a little old-fashioned in our high-tech world, but don’t let their simple design fool you. These tools are the best bet to prevent tooth decay, plaque build-up, and gum disease for Daly City dental patients!

When done properly and consistently, brushing and flossing are an essential part of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing, which should be done at least twice a day, can be done effectively with any type of toothbrush. There is no need to pay a bundle for a fancy electric toothbrush from your San Francisco Wal-Mart, just brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2 to 3 minutes making sure to reach all the surfaces.

Flossing should be done once a day and is important for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at San Mateo, Pacifica, and Half Moon Bay drugstores, so find one you like.

I’m Dr. Kenneth Hovden, an experienced Daly City dentist, and I want to help you enjoy your dental visits and adore your smile.

Our professional staff loves sending our San Francisco and Pacifica area patients away with a new toothbrush and floss, but we also find it rewarding to see our patients gain renewed confidence with a smile makeover.

We’d love to answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry such as tooth whitening, veneers, dental implants, or any other dental health topic.

Give us a call today at 650-755-6000!

Choosing A Dentist In Daly City

perfect smile San FranciscoThe American Dental Association offers some welcome advice for choosing a dentist in Daly City. We have already talked about how word of mouth is an important factor for choosing a dentist. Here are some things you should look for:

Location is always a factor when choosing a dentist in Daly City. If you live in the San Francisco California area, there are many options, and most Daly City locations are not too far out of the way. While location plays an important role in convenience, many people are willing to drive a little farther for a better experience with their Daly City dentist.

Relationship is a strong factor. Your Daly City dentist should be approachable and should make you feel comfortable when you are in the dentist chair. After all, your Daly City dentist will be working very close with you to help you achieve a high level of oral health; you most certainly will want to have a good, professional, comfortable relationship with your Daly City dentist and the dental office staff.

Specialty is another important factor in choosing a dentist in Daly City. Some dentists specialize in cosmetic dentistry. Others specialize in corrective dentistry such as braces. Depending on your need, you may select a local Daly City dentist who can solve your immediate concern. Bear in mind, however, that it is good to have a general dentist who can maintain your dental history and provide general dental care through the years.

We are accepting new patients. Give us a call at 650-755-6000 to schedule a friendly consultation.

Are All Carbs Created Equal?

Diet Changes For Healthier Teeth In Daly City

Hello, I am Dr. Kenneth Hovden of Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City. Today, we are focusing on diet and oral health.

I’m sure you brush and floss regularly and hopefully visit your Daly City dental practice for needed cleanings, but did you know that making small but critical changes to your diet can improve your oral health?

Most Daly City residents are aware that the sugar found in candy, cookies, juices and sodas can harm your teeth; but some San Francisco people don’t realize that all carbohydrates can cause cavities. A handful of pretzels or a piece of pumpernickel bread can have the same effect on your teeth as a fudge brownie.

All carbohydrates break down into simple sugars, which are converted into plaque, which can then cause cavities and gum disease. Carbs are naturally sticky and adhere to your teeth. Eating carbs with meals is healthier than eating them as snacks because more saliva is generated at mealtime. Saliva helps prevent food particles from sticking to teeth.

At Kenneth Hovden DDS, I continue to see tooth damage caused by sodas and sports drinks. If you choose to drink them, sip them through a straw. By limiting the contact of these drinks on your teeth, you will help preserve your enamel.

Another vital way San Francisco residents can improve their oral health is to get 800mg of calcium a day for men and 1,000mg for women under 50. Calcium helps strengthen your jaw and secure your teeth firmly in the jaw bone.

Diet alone will not prevent cavities and harmful gum disease for Daly City dental patients; however, wise eating promotes healthy teeth and gums.

My staff and I at Kenneth Hovden DDS are accepting new Daly City general and cosmetic dental patients in the 94015 zip code area. I encourage you to call 650-755-6000 today to schedule an exam and cleaning, if required.

Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City offers a full menu of general and specialty dental services including cosmetic dentistry and porcelain veneers. For more details, call today to schedule an appointment or visit https://www.cosmeticimplantdentistryca.com/dental-services/.

In my San Francisco dental blog, I post informative articles about dentistry including new cosmetic dental treatments, preventative dental care, and news about my dental practice. Many of my patients visit my blog regularly and I hope you will also find useful dental information here.

Do you currently have a dentist? If you are in need of a dentist or are not happy with your current San Mateo dentist, I invite you to visit my Daly City office, meet my professional staff, and discuss your dental needs.

My approach to my profession emphasizes you, the patient.

My first priority is exceeding my patient’s expectations. Before I can provide dental treatment, however, I must become familiar with each patient. That is why your first consultation will take some time. We can’t get to know each other in five minutes.

How are you doing? What is the current condition of your teeth and gums? What are your fears and expectations about Daly City dental treatment? Do you have financial concerns regarding your dental needs? I recognize that each one of my patients has a unique set of circumstances.

At Kenneth Hovden DDS, we emphasize preventative dental care. When restorative dental treatment is necessary, I recommend the most conservative procedures. If you have pressing dental needs, let’s talk about your options and consider the long term consequences of each treatment. If I believe it is best to refer you to another specialist, I’ll do so without hesitation. I am committed to your well-being and want you to receive the best possible care.

If you are interested in San Francisco cosmetic dentistry, I can also help you. I pursue continual training in the latest cosmetic treatments and have extensive experience performing individual tooth restorations, complete smile makeovers and everything in between. Did you know that I can completely redesign your smile if that is what you desire? Miracles are possible with cosmetic dentistry.

Please call us at 650-755-6000 to book a consultation. I am confident you will feel good about choosing Kenneth Hovden DDS for your dental care.

Here at Kenneth Hovden DDS we use effective, cost sensitive, cutting-edge methods and tools as we create the best smile for each individual.

Many professionals and public figures in California are taking advantage of modern cosmetic dentistry to improve their appearances and enhance their natural attractiveness. Perhaps you have noticed men and women in the local media with smiles that seem extremely bright and beautiful for people of their age.

You, too, can have a smile that is extremely bright and beautiful, regardless of your age. Whether you are in your fifties, sixties, seventies or beyond, we can provide an anti-aging treatment that doesn’t offer empty promises. Our smile makeovers deliver dramatic results as promised!

You have probably heard of porcelain veneers, dental implants, orthodontics, crown restoration, and teeth whitening. Some lesser-known procedures include laser gum contouring, silver filling replacement, and implant anchored dentures. Gum countoring can remedy a gumline that is not aesthetically pleasing.
