Overview of Cosmetic Dentistry

Dr. Carter Yokoyama, DDS in Kailua-Kona, HI specializes in cosmetic dentistry, and offers our patients the chance to get a skillfully designed smile, but also one that is the actual portrait of health and wellness. We emphasize healthy teeth and gums as the foundation for the best smiles, and we work with you to meet your goals and needs.

As your dentist in Kailua-Kona, HI, Dr. Yokoyama is also your top cosmetic dentist too. Using only the latest innovations and technologies, he will meet with you to assess your smile and discuss your wishes. Getting you to a point where you like the looks of your smile is the ultimate goal of our cosmetic dentistry, and so we want to hear what it is that you feel needs to be improved upon.

We use your current dental condition, your personal opinions and goals, and the skills of Dr. Yokoyama, a top cosmetic dentist in Kailua-Kona, HI, to create an entirely customized treatment plan. Because no two people are alike, none of our cosmetic dentistry solutions are either.

Among the treatments we make available are:

Teeth whitening – This is a final touch to many smile makeovers or cosmetic solutions, and is a wonderful way to boost your self-confidence too.

Porcelain veneers – Able to remedy everything from deeply stained teeth that cannot be whitened to moderately gapped or misaligned teeth, chipped teeth or gummy smiles, they are a wonderful part of cosmetic dentistry.

Tooth-colored fillings – If you do not require a dental crown, this is the most aesthetic way to address decay in a tooth. Not only does it halt the progress of decay, but it gives an aesthetic finish.

Gum lifting – Also called cosmetic gum contouring, this can help those with gummy smiles or teeth that are too small.

Smile makeover – This is a total smile design plan that allows us to work with you to offer everything from restorative work (such as implants) to cosmetic remedies like whitening in order to give you an all new smile.
