Living with a missing tooth can cause feelings of self-consciousness and make eating and speaking difficult. Missing teeth also have a negative impact on your health. Our Kailua-Kona dentist can help you replace missing teeth with dental implants. Dental implants work just like natural tooth roots and provide unmatched stability for dental restorations such as bridges, crowns, or dentures.
Even patients with the best oral hygiene and great dental health can want whiter, brighter, or straighter teeth. Cosmetic dentistry by Dr. Oka can dramatically transform the look of your smile. We offer custom-designed cosmetic treatment plans to realize your goals. Treatments include porcelain veneers, dental bonding, and teeth whitening.
A broken tooth that has been compromised by trauma or decay can be restored with a dental crown. Treatment with a dental crown can protect a tooth from further damage and can help prevent the need for extraction. Also, the medical-grade materials in our dental crowns can be color-matched to blend seamlessly with the natural teeth in your smile. Our Kailua-Kona office features an advanced CEREC® machine that allows our dentist to create a custom-fitted crown in less than an hour.
With dental veneers, you can quickly and effectively achieve a picture-perfect smile. These ultra-thin porcelain shells can conceal misaligned teeth, gaps, chips, cracks, and intrinsic stains that don't respond to professional teeth whitening. The advanced ceramic used in porcelain veneers mimics the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel and can be color-matched to blend with your surrounding teeth.
The ClearCorrect® system is a great option for patients who would like straighter teeth but who are put off by the thought of wearing bulky metal braces. Using a series of removable clear aligner trays to gently adjust your bite, ClearCorrect provides all of the advantages of braces without the restrictions. Learn more about the advantages of this orthodontic option at our Kailua-Kona office.

Kailua-Kona, HI, Patients Recommend Us
"I have been going to Dr. Oka for over a decade. He is without doubt the best dentist on Hawaii Island. I have recommended numerous patients I've the years to his office and they are all pleased with Dr.Oka and his staff. I recently had an old gold crown that needed to be replaced. Not only did he explain the options and process, but he showed me the machine while the crown was being made in a very state of the art machine. The end result was perfection."
