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. Imagine what a "perfect smile" would look like to you. Some questions you can ask yourself are:

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

All of these concerns are treatable with cosmetic procedures at our Kailua-Kona dental office

Our Featured Cosmetic Procedures

​Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a great long-term solution for dental flaws such as cracks, chips, gaps, and discoloration. Our cosmetic dentist 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.

​Clear Aligners

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® or SureSmile® orthodontic aligners. These nearly invisible clear plastic trays fit snugly over your teeth, gently pressuring them into proper alignment. Adults and teens alike love the discreet nature of clear aligners and the convenience of being able to remove the aligners for meals, pictures, and sports. Ask our dentist if you are a good candidate for ClearCorrect or SureSmile at your next appointment.

Dental Bonding

Bonding is an affordable way to correct minor dental flaws that detract from your smile. Our dentist can apply an enamel-colored composite resin to the surface of your teeth to fill in chips, mask intrinsic stains, and even change the appearance of a tooth that is poorly shaped or too small. While bonding is not as long-lasting as veneers, it's a great option for patients who prefer not to make permanent changes to their teeth or want to determine if veneers would be a good fit.

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. The teeth whitening gel is removed and reapplied to teeth until the patient has achieved their ideal tooth color. 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 plan, you can save time and money, getting a better value for the same stunning results.

Will Dental Insurance Cover My Cosmetic Care?

Dentistry that isn't considered medically necessary, like veneers or teeth whitening, is 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 office 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 have options. 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.

Qualifying for Cosmetic Dentistry

Before undergoing cosmetic treatment from our dentist at our Kailua-Kona, HI, office, patients should be in good oral health. Conditions like gum disease and tooth decay will need to be treated before receiving cosmetic dentistry.

If you have a tooth that needs a root canal, an extraction, or other treatment, Sweet Tooth Dental can provide the necessary dental care before your cosmetic dentistry treatment.

Your Treatment Process

Treatment at our Kailua-Kona office is a collaborative process between the dentist and the patient. Take a look at the steps involved with cosmetic dentistry:

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, your dentist will create a mock-up of your new smile with digital imaging software or 3D 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 show your new smile to the world!

A 5-Star Review

for Our Hawaii Practice

"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."

Dental Implant Model

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, jawbone atrophy can make your face appear sunken and result in teeth shifting out of place or falling out entirely. 

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 can check to see if you have the minimum amount of tissue required for dental implants to successfully fuse with your jawbone.

Restorative Dentistry Procedures Improve Form and Function

Our cosmetic dentist can refine the appearance of your smile with procedures like teeth whitening and veneers, but he can also improve functional concerns like broken teeth and dental decay. Some common restorative dentistry procedures we perform include:

Dental Fillings

Cavities can cause pain and make your smile look unhealthy. When left untreated, they can also result in widespread damage. Dr. Oka can remove decayed dental tissue and place a tooth-colored filling for a healthier, more attractive smile.

Dental Crowns

Don't let a broken tooth change what you eat and how you smile. We can repair a broken tooth with a dental crown, sometimes on the same day as your appointment. We can also replace a single missing tooth with an implant-supported crown.

Dental Bridges

If you have a missing tooth or a few missing teeth in a row, we can place a dental bridge. We offer both traditional bridges and implant-supported bridges, depending on your needs. Traditional bridges require us to crown abutment teeth on each side of the gap in your smile. Implant-supported bridges use implants for superior stability.


Widespread tooth loss can impact your quality of life. We can create a custom traditional or implant-supported denture to restore your dental arches. If you're not a candidate for traditional implants, we can use the All-on-4® method to support a full-arch denture on just four strategically placed implants.

TMJ Treatment

Temporomandibular joint disorders can cause pain, headaches, and worn teeth. We offer noninvasive treatment in the form of an oral appliance to alleviate the symptoms of TMJ disorder and protect your teeth while you sleep.
