What Can We Address With Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dental treatments and the smile makeover process are all about giving you the smile of your dreams. So take a good look at your teeth and note what you like and don't like about them, and imagine what a "perfect smile" would look like to you.  Some questions you can ask yourself are:

  • Are your teeth as white as you'd like them to be?
  • Are any teeth chipped, cracked, or worn?
  • Does your smile have a gummy appearance?
  • Do your teeth seem too large or small?
  • Do you like the alignment and spacing of your teeth?
  • Are you self-conscious about crookedness or gaps?

All of these concerns are treatable with cosmetic dental care at our Kailua-Kona practice!

Share Your Goals

Communication is an extremely important part of the process. Tell our cosmetic dentist about your insecurities, bring along pictures of smiles you like, and discuss your aesthetic preferences. 

Design a Plan

After learning about your goals, Dr. Oka will assess the condition of your teeth,  and create a plan to correct dental imperfections. The treatments we select are unique to your smile and are designed to improve your oral health as well as enhance your appearance as a whole. 

Preview the Results

Next, the dentist will create a mock-up of your new smile with digital imaging software, and 3-D models, so you can visualize the transformation before making any lasting changes. Patients can even "try on" their results with temporary restorations to better understand what the results will feel like.

A “trial smile” is a great way to eliminate unknowns in the makeover process. But when it's all done, there's still one thing you may not be prepared for: how great it feels to flash your new smile to the world! Maintain your results by practicing good dental hygiene and visiting our Kailua-Kona, office for regular check-ups.

Our Featured Cosmetic Procedures

​Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a great longterm solution for dental flaws such as cracks, chips, gaps, and discoloration. Our cosmetic dentist expertly designs your restorations to look proportional and natural-looking within your smile, expertly color matching the porcelain to blend in seamlessly with surrounding teeth. Veneers are incredibly durable and can last well over a decade with proper care and maintenance

Explore Veneers


Do you often wish for straighter teeth, but hesitate at the thought of wearing bulky metal braces? Dr. Oka has a solution for you with ​ClearCorrect® orthodontic aligners. These nearly invisible clear plastic trays fit snugly over your dental arches, gently pressuring the teeth to shift into alignment. Adults and teens alike love the discrete nature of ClearCorrect and the convenience of being able to remove the aligners for meals, pictures, and sports. Ask the dentist if you are a good candidate for ClearCorrect at your next appointment.

Before and after dental bonding

Dental Bonding

Bonding is an affordable way to correct minor dental flaws that distract from your smile. Our dentist will apply this enamel-colored composite resin to the surface of your teeth to fill in cracks, mask intrinsic stains, and even supplement a tooth that is poorly shaped or too small. While bonding is not as long-lasting as veneers, it is a great option for patients who prefer not to make permanent changes or want to test out if veneers are a good idea in the future. 

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is an effective way to remove surface stains, yellow hues, and color inconsistencies in your smile. This affordable procedure will correct years of discoloration in a single appointment. Our dentist applies the specially formulated whitening gel to the surface of your teeth and carefully monitors your enamel while the peroxide takes effect. Patients select their ideal tooth color before they begin treatment, so the results are exactly what they want. We also offer take-home whitening treatments so you can brighten or touch up your teeth conveniently at home.

Smile Makeover

Oftentimes, patients cannot find a single procedure to address all the areas of their smile they wish to change. If this describes you, then our dentist can combine several treatments into a custom smile makeover. A smile makeover is a comprehensive smile rejuvenation plan that's uniquely suited to your facial features, cosmetic goals, and budget. By bundling your dentistry into one streamlined procedure, you will save time and money, getting a better value for the same stunning results.  

Consider Dental Implants To Replace Missing Teeth 

If you have missing teeth or need an extraction, consider getting a restoration anchored by dental implants. Unlike traditional restorations, dental implants prevent jawbone atrophy. If left untreated, a shrinking jawbone can make your face appear sunken while your teeth shift and may even fall out. 

Whether you're missing one tooth, multiple teeth in a row, or need an entire arch of teeth replaced, implant-supported prosthetics from our Kailua-Kona, HI, office can fill in the gaps in your smile. Crowns, bridges, and dentures can all be anchored with dental implants. 

Talk to Dr. Oka if you're missing teeth and desire an option that's nearly as good as having natural teeth. During a consultation, Dr. Oka will check to see if you have the minimum amount of tissue required for dental implants to successfully fuse with your jawbone.

A 5-Star Review for Our Hawaii Practice

"The staff is always friendly, Dr. Oka is wonderful. Easy to get appointments. I would highly recommend Sweet Tooth Dental to everyone!" Carolyn Hocke

Will Dental Insurance Cover My Cosmetic Care?

Unfortunately, dentistry that isn't considered medically necessary, like veneers or teeth whitening, is generally not covered by insurance. However, if your cosmetic treatment also has a restorative purpose, like a crown that improves the look and function of a tooth, you may receive partial coverage.

Our practice in Kailua-Kona accepts most types of insurance, including Delta Dental® PPO, Hawaii Medical Service Association (HMSA) PPO, and Hawaii Medical Assurance Association (HMAA) plans.

Financing and Payment Options

If you need additional help covering your out-of-pocket expenses, we're here to help. We accept several forms of financing, including SpringStone℠ and CareCredit, third-party lenders that offer loans with little or no interest that are repayable through manageable monthly installments.

We also take payments through Visa, MasterCard, and Discover, and we offer a 5% discount for cash payments made in full at the start of treatment.
