At Kenneth Hovden DDS, we restore decayed teeth to create smiles that are both healthy and beautiful. Recent advances in both techniques and materials have made the ‘impossible’ not only possible, but affordable for everyone in Daly City as well.
Dr. Kenneth Hovden has been restoring teeth since 1981. Ongoing training is essential for staying on the cutting edge of the cosmetic dentistry industry.
Decay is the most common Daly City dental problem and the second most common disease in the nation (number one is the common cold). If you have one or more teeth with decay, it’s time to take care of them.
Fillings, inlays, onlays and crowns are used to restore teeth for our San Francisco cosmetic dental patients. Even the most basic procedure – filling a cavity – has evolved. There are several types of new materials available including porcelain and composite resin. Each has specific strengths and aesthetic considerations. Daly City patients who replace silver amalgam with tooth-colored fillings love getting the metal out of their smile.
Inlays and onlays are more extensive restorations. There are two types: direct or indirect. Direct inlays and onlays are made in your San Mateo cosmetic dental office on the spot and applied in one visit. Indirect inlays and onlays are fabricated in a San Mateo dental lab. They usually require a second visit but the results are well worth the extra trip.
When a San Francisco client has a tooth that cannot be restored with an inlay or an onlay, a natural-looking dental crown is the answer. At Kenneth Hovden DDS, we create crowns that blend in perfectly with the rest of your teeth. Let us show you some photos of patients who have received smile makeovers – you will not see any “Chiclet” crowns that stick out like a sore thumb. In fact, you won’t be able to tell which of our Daly City dental clients have crowns.
