What You Need To Know About Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry in Honolulu, HI

Our dental clinic offers the best in cosmetic dentistry, but do you sometimes wonder what qualifies as cosmetic dentistry? A cosmetic procedure is generally defined as one that is not medically necessary and is done for aesthetic reasons. At our dental office, we think this definition fits certain procedures well, such as teeth whitening and replacing metal fillings with amalgam fillings.
However, you may be surprised at how many other procedures are also considered cosmetic, such as crowns, bridges, dentures, dental implants, bonding and orthodontia. Today, more insurance companies recognize it is important to have a full set of well-functioning teeth, and for this reason, they have begun paying a portion toward the cost of orthodontia and some other procedures.

We want you to look and feel your best. So we emphasize the aesthetic aspect in ALL our work because we know that when your smile looks good, you feel good!

Ask us what tooth crowns, dental bonding, and professional teeth whitening can do for YOUR smile!

A Crown Restores a Damaged Tooth

Sometimes a weak tooth can become broken or simply too worn for a dental filling to restore it to function. When that happens, a tooth crown will save and even add strength to the damaged or broken tooth. Our dental crowns are made of the most advanced materials available. The finished product will look so natural you won’t be able to distinguish it from a real tooth.

Teeth Whitening – Dazzling Results!

It’s natural to want brighter teeth! Whiter teeth appear healthier and are easier to accomplish than most people think. The best way to whiten your teeth is by using a professionally supervised bleaching process. Our cosmetic teeth whitening dentist, Dr. Ha offers custom teeth whitening trays made in his own lab. After the initial in-office treatment, with our supplies and instructions you will safely and effectively complete the dental whitening procedure at home. Results occur within 1 – 14 days.

An Affordable Alternative for Multiple Missing Teeth

If you have more than one missing tooth in an area of your mouth, a dental bridge treatment may be a suitable solution for filling the gap. Custom made with the same high-quality materials as our crowns, a bridge is anchored between crowns to span the gap, returning full function and comfort to your mouth, as well as restoring your smile.

No Mercury! No Metals! No Kidding!

The problem with the standard silver-mercury amalgam filling is the appearance. Most people just don’t want an ugly black plug in their teeth. While they are a reasonable restoration, still used by many practices, amalgams are also not the tightest bond available for repairing your tooth, so decay can and does eventually leak around the metal into your tooth. We offer modern restorations that are a natural-looking white, contain no metals, and can actually strengthen your teeth. These natural looking white composite fillings bond very tightly with the healthy part of your tooth, so there will be much less chance of tooth decay in the future.

Choose Invisalign for Straight Teeth

Braces have been around for a long time, but it was not until recently that patients had a choice — it was silver metal braces or nothing. Today, many of the patients at our Honolulu, Hawaii, dental clinic choose Invisalign. The Invisalign method uses clear plastic aligner trays to straighten teeth.
The major advantage of this method is that the aligners are nearly invisible — much less noticeable than metal brackets and wires. They’re much more comfortable too, because they are made of smooth plastic instead of bulky metal. You take them out when you eat, so you don’t have to give up foods like corn on the cob, popcorn, spinach, candy or apples. Because the aligners are removable, you can take them out for special occasions such as proms and graduations.

Dental Implants

Tooth implants are an ideal solution for missing teeth. Our dentist embeds a titanium post into your jaw, then after a period of healing, he attaches the abutment and the crown. The result is a strong, permanent tooth that looks exactly like all your other teeth. No one will know you have a tooth implant.
Dental implants are also considered better solutions for replacing teeth because they keep your jawbone healthy and strong.

'Smile Makeovers' in as Little as Two Visits!

Our porcelain veneers may offer the smile solution for which you’ve been looking. Veneers are thin, durable sheets of the most advanced dental ceramic available. They are bonded to natural teeth in a way that makes your teeth appear straight and uniform, creating an attractive smile. In no time, your crooked teeth can look like they’ve had years of teeth straightening. Veneers can also be applied to a tooth to completely conceal a chip or crack or to reshape a worn tooth or misshapen tooth. The veneer is made to match the color of the surrounding teeth, so your smile looks completely natural. If you have misshapen teeth, unsightly gaps, or deep discoloration, ask us if dental veneers procedure is right for you.

Bonding & Reshaping

For patients who are bothered by minor defects in their teeth, our dental clinic offers bonding and reshaping services. If one of your front teeth is chipped, it may be all you can see when you look in the mirror. Whether it’s a small chip or a large chip, if it’s in a prominent place, it can affect your self-esteem. Bonding is the answer. Our dentist bonds a composite resin to your tooth to restore its shape so your tooth will look just like it did before.
Bonding can also be used to fill gaps between teeth and to improve their color. Reshaping is a technique our dentist uses to correct teeth that are misshapen, pitted, crowded or overlapping.

Our Patient Say the Nicest Things

Here’s what our happy patients say about us.


I have been a patient of Dr. John HA for couple years now, and undergoing dental treatment in the pass has always been a unpleasant experience for me. This is mainly because I have often found myself on the receiving end of doctors’ conversations, where they would inform me that I need surgery to fix my teeth, but in a way that made me feel belittled and ashamed. However, after finally deciding to get dental implants, I chose to go with Dr. HA after reading positive reviews. I approached this decision with the mindset that if I felt judged or criticized about the condition of my teeth, I would seek treatment elsewhere. From my very first consultation to the permanent implantation of my implants, Dr. HA and his staff have truly made this surgery the best decision of my life. For nearly two years, I have been traveling from the Big Island to Oahu to receive my treatments. I understood that if I wanted to regain a sense of normalcy, and be able to eat and smile confidently, I had to trust that the staff would make the right decisions and guide me in the correct direction, as I had no knowledge of the process. The front office staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating, always being flexible with scheduling and accommodating my family when necessary. The dental assistants made me feel like a friend rather than just a customer, and Dr. HA himself took the time to explain the entire operation process from start to finish. He also discussed additional measures to ensure that I felt confident in achieving the results I desired. I cannot express enough gratitude to Dr. HA and his staff for their invaluable assistance throughout my procedures. Best dental establishment hands down!!.
Dr John Ha and his team were amazing. I’m from California and had a dental emergency in Waikiki. I contacted his office and they made time to see me. I only spent an hour and a half there and they did amazing. Allowed me to continue with my vacation with some peace of mind. Thank you so much.
Staff are always very friendly and dependable in their healthcare. Top of the line equipment and they know what they’re talking about.
From stepping into the office, it and the staff were very welcoming. Had an 11am appointment and there was no waiting. At 11, they were calling me in. Karen was very nice and professional taking pictures. During the exam, I suddenly felt very “out of sorts” and had to leave to get some air. Shawn came out to make sure I was OK and was very caring and we appreciated her kindness and understanding. Mahalo HSD!
There is no better dentist. I have never been to this location, but saw him at a previous practice. Dr. Ha is the perfect dentist. I had severe dental anxiety which caused me to neglect my teeth health, needed a root canal. He made me stop hating the dentist. He is caring, funny, has amazing banter and is just genuinely an awesome dude. Since he moved practices I’ve had no one that can possibly compare to him. Do yourself a favor and choose him for your dental care. I wish I still could.
We are a dental technology and continuing education provider for dental professionals on a global level. We have worked with over 15,000 dentists over the last 2 decades and intimately know the level of care Dr. Ha provides for his patients. He makes no compromises in delivering dentistry at the highest level possible. We had the privilege of hosting him at a recent event with dental professionals where he shared his vast knowledge and expertise with fellow like minded dental professionals. Everyone was thoroughly impressed with the amount of detail he pays attention to with every single patient. We can’t recommend him highly enough for your dental care.
