A Smile Makeover can mean anything from a professional in office tooth whitening to porcelain veneers, dental crowns or dental implants. A Smile Makeover can also include restorative dental procedures such as root canals, fillings, dental bridges, or gum disease therapy.
When you schedule an appointment with Dr. Wynn Okuda, Honolulu’s most well known cosmetic and restorative dentist, your entire mouth will be checked to make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough before any restorative or cosmetic procedures can proceed. During your comprehensive dental exam Dr. Okuda will also clean your teeth and give you an oral cancer screening.
Porcelain Veneers are used for a multitude of applications including badly stained teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, or teeth that appear too short or too long. Dr. Okuda may also recommend porcelain veneers if you have a gap between your teeth.
Dental bonding is less permanent than porcelain veneers, but is a more affordable option. Cosmetic resin that has been chosen to match the color of your teeth will be bonded to the prepared tooth or teeth before the resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape. Once satisfied, Dr. Okuda will use a laser or light to cure or harden the material.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Porcelain and resin can be used to replace old silver amalgam fillings or to fill cavities in the front of your teeth. Tooth colored fillings are more aesthetically pleasing, and although not as sturdy as amalgam, extract and expand making fillings less likely to leak, chip, or break.
Missing teeth can affect more than your smile. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, regardless of its location, the rest of your teeth can suffer from it. Dr. Okuda can determine if dental implants are a good fit if you have a missing tooth or missing teeth.
