As the sole board-certified implantologist in Hawaii, Dr. Michael Nishime attracts a steady procession of patients seeking to have their flawed grins rebuilt. But that isn’t the only thing he does at The Center for Implant and Esthetic Dentistry. He also tends to smiles with other surgical procedures, including bone grafting, apicoectomy, and wisdom-teeth extraction, as well as general dentistry, Invisalign, and teeth whitening. No matter what treatment patients get, Dr. Nishime believes they should be comfortable, and so he offers nitrous oxide, pill sedation, and recordings of pan-flute music to quell anxiety.
Though they’re versed in tackling dental emergencies, the doctors and staff members at Aloha Dental Center bring the same sure-handed skills to less-urgent mouth mending, including preventive cleanings and teeth-whitening treatments. The team straightens crooked grins with personalized orthodontics, or restores dilapidated smiles with porcelain veneers. In addition to expert services, team members also practice their bedside manners with kid-friendly pediatric dentistry and Spanish-speaking employees ready to bridge language gaps. Dental dilemmas clear up during convenient weekend and evening appointments, which accommodate busy schedules and romantic teeth-whitening dates.
Only a short hairbrush toss from Aiea Bay, Beautiful Soul pampers the senses with a menu of indulgent spa services. Owner Leina Keomalu can rehab mugs with an exfoliating facial, or draw on her lash certification to outfit eyelids with elegant faux mink extensions. Clients can also solicit the spa’s waxing services to nix unwanted hair from eyebrows, upper lips, or cherished pet rocks.
Dr. Russell H. Masunaga keeps patients’ mouths in optimal health while ensuring a comfortable, virtually pain-free experience through the use of laser technology. With lasers, Dr. Masunaga can often avoid the use of anesthetics when removing tooth decay in a quicker, more precise manner than standard drilling procedures. He also fills cavities with tooth-colored composites for a unified, natural-looking smile. With office hours available Monday–Saturday, Dr. Masunaga makes scheduling a visit more accessible, as well.
Dr. Leialoha Leung’s team of dental deputies transforms drab mouths into gleaming smilescapes with a potent blend of light, heat, pressure, and peroxide. Teeth can sink comfortably into custom-tailored SpaWhite trays loaded with pH-balanced foam, then bask languidly as blue Daylight beams activate the elixir. Each 30-minute session eradicates wine, coffee, and tobacco stains without home-whitening formulas’ burning pangs or powdered donuts’ ephemeral results. Once SpaWhite has worked its magic, Dr. Leialoha graciously examines every inch of newly incandescent tusks to ensure their integrity. On their way out, freshly illuminated faces can pause in front of the clinic’s panoramic windows to catch peeps of Diamond Head and Kahala before palming personal whitening pens for touchups and writing grocery lists on a spouse's teeth.
