Cosmetic Dentistry Services and Treatments

We offer many different cosmetic dentistry services at our office in Honolulu. Dr. Yasuhara can recommend specific procedures or treatments to help you achieve the smile you desire. Some of the services provided by the dentist include:

Teeth Whitening — A treatment for eliminating stains and discolorations on teeth, as well as brightening a dull smile. Professional teeth whitening can be performed in the office or at home with a take-home kit. In-office whitening is the fastest way to achieve a whiter smile, but both options deliver professional results that last longer than those obtained using over-the-counter products.

Cosmetic Bonding — Procedure for repairing teeth with chipped or cracked areas. Cosmetic bonding can also close small gaps between teeth or conceal discolorations. The procedure involves the application of tooth-colored material to the problem area. Once dry, the bonding material is permanently bonded to the tooth and the problem area will no longer be noticeable.

Tooth-Colored Fillings — A type of dental filling that blends in with the natural teeth. Tooth-colored fillings are used to fill cavities like other fillings, but are more discreet. Since they are white, no one will know you have them.

Tooth Contouring and Reshaping — A procedure for giving oddly shaped teeth a more pleasing appearance. Small portions of enamel are carefully removed until the tooth has a more desirable shape the tooth. The procedure can also be used to create more space between overlapping teeth.

Porcelain Veneers — Extremely thin covers that can be bonded to the front of teeth create a flawless appearance by concealing imperfections, such as discolorations, chipped areas, or cracks.

Cosmetic Gum Surgery — The gums can affect the appearance of your smile by the way they frame your teeth. Cosmetic gum surgery can be performed to treat receding gums, an uneven gum line, or a gummy smile caused by excess gum tissue.
