Dr. Ha believes in a team approach to dental care. One of the ways he accomplishes this is through the use of a high-tech intra-oral camera. This remarkable technology is a miniature video camera that presents a close-up picture of the inside of your mouth. Now you can see what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine, making you an active participant in each dental decision. You’ll love how this works!
3-D cone beam CT digital imaging technology is one of the latest advances in dentistry. We are excited to soon be one of the first practices in our area to provide this service. Think of this as a three-dimensional X-ray that is FAR more accurate than traditional X-ray equipment, taking much less time and doing it with far less radiation exposure. Ultra cone beam images present an outstanding advantage when diagnosing patients and evaluating treatment options. Dr. Ha’s ability to clearly see a patient’s anatomy in 3-D, as opposed to flat, two-dimensional images, will lead to much greater accuracy for all dental treatment but especially implant placement and any oral surgeries.
Isolite is a “brilliant” new technology that makes your dental care much more agreeable. A combination light and suction device, Isolite illuminates the oral cavity, eliminating shadows while also removing excess moisture and debris. What does this mean for you?
Modern dentistry requires a dry “field” for best results. The Isolite keeps your teeth and gums dry and often removes the need for a bulky rubber dam during procedures.

Laser dentistry at Honolulu Smile Designs employs focused light beams for precise and painless procedures. It minimizes discomfort, reduces healing time, and is used for treatments like gum disease therapy, cavity detection, and teeth whitening.
Our clinic uses digital impressions, eliminating messy molds. A 3D scan captures accurate tooth and gum images, aiding in creating custom restorations, aligners, and implants for a quicker, comfortable, and precise treatment process.
With our CEREC technology, damaged teeth can be restored in a single visit. Using 3D scans, we craft natural-looking crowns on-site, saving you time and providing durable, perfectly fitted solutions.
Our 3D Cone Beam Imaging system offers detailed views of your oral structures. This aids in precise implant planning, diagnosing complex cases, and delivering optimal treatment strategies for a safer and more efficient experience.
Air abrasion is a gentle alternative to traditional drilling. It uses compressed air and fine particles to remove decay without the heat, vibration, or noise of drills, preserving more of your natural tooth structure and reducing anxiety.
Digital X-rays use 75% less radiation than conventional X-rays. Using a digital sensor, an image is taken of your mouth and downloaded into our computer, where it is instantly available. No more waiting for images to develop and no more chemical waste to pollute the environment.
Additionally, digital X-rays eliminate the need for chemical processing, which is required in traditional film-based X-rays. This means no more hazardous chemicals or waste that can harm the environment. By adopting digital X-rays, we are taking an eco-friendly approach and reducing our carbon footprint.
