Cosmetic Dentistry SmileFind out what cosmetic dentistry can do to enhance your appearance!

Did you know that smiling offers a host of amazing health benefits such as lowering blood pressure and boosting endorphins? Of course, if you are embarrassed by your teeth, you may find that you are less likely to smile than someone who feels confident in their appearance; fortunately, our Kailua Kona, HI, cosmetic dentist Dr. Garrett Oka can turn that frown upside down thanks to cosmetic dentistry!

You Want a Whiter Smile

Most people acquire some degree of yellowing in their teeth as they get older. Of course, this is a simple fix with the help of professional teeth whitening. Whether you want to let us do the whitening for you or you want to whiten from home, we offer in-office and at-home whitening systems that can give you more effective results than commercial whitening products from your local drugstore.

Not sure which option to choose? If you want to get a visibly whiter smile in about one hour, than in-office whitening is the option for you; however, if you are a bit more budget conscious and like the convenience of whitening from the comfort of your home, ask us about at-home whitening treatment.

You Want to Hide a Chipped Tooth

While more serious dental damage will require restorative treatments such as a dental crown or filling, if you are dealing with a minor chip or crack, then this is something that can be covered with dental bonding. During bonding, our Kailua Kona dentist applies a tooth-colored resin to the area, which will then be shaped over the chip to hide it completely. Once the resin has been shaped, it will be hardened with a dental laser.

You Want to Cover Several Imperfections

Maybe you don’t just have some discolorations to treat or a little chip to fix, but instead have several different cosmetic issues at once. If so, then you may want to turn to dental veneers. These thin, porcelain shells are affixed to the front of one or more teeth to improve the shape, size, color, and even symmetry of your smile. Imagine some of those beautiful Hollywood smiles—many of them are thanks to dental veneers.

You Want a Straighter Smile

You have two approaches. You could choose a nearly invisible orthodontic system like Invisalign to close gaps between teeth or to fix a crooked tooth or misaligned smile; however, if you are dealing with very minor misalignment issues even dental veneers could make your smile appear straighter without needing braces.
