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.
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.
Dr. Bryant B. LaPorte has practiced a full range of cosmetic and restorative dentistry for more than a quarter of a century. For him, evaluations are key to helping patients make informed decisions. He has kept his office current with evaluation technology, such as intraoral cameras, which allow him to see teeth as though he were actually standing inside your mouth—which is impossible, no matter how hard he tries. Additionally, ultraviolet light illuminates soft tissue during oral-cancer screenings, revealing tumors invisible to the naked eye, and digital x-rays expose the mouth’s inner workings without exposing patients to the high levels of radiation that emit from traditional x-rays.
Within the sleek and stylish walls of Ala Moana Dental Care, Dr. Declan Devereux and his team of trained technicians focus their wealth of experience and advanced technology on the health and longevity of pearly, toothy grins. The mouthsperience includes a comprehensive examination, where the dentist will lay out his oral plan of attack, point out problem areas, and check for early signs of disease, and a set of x-rays ensure teeth and their corresponding spirit animals stay firmly rooted. Mouth bones also receive a thorough scrub down which employs thorough, yet gentle methods to remove cavity-causing debris and leftover confetti, leaving maws with glinty accessories to flash at friends and warn unsuspecting motorists of their broken headlights.
Armed with the latest technology, such as digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, Dr. Marlon C. Parato delves into the nooks and crannies of teeth and gums. His practice follows the philosophy "we inform before we perform," the same motto adopted by government spies disguised as lounge singers. Whether applying porcelain veneers or whitening teeth with Zoom! treatments, Dr. Parato and his staff make sure to arm their patients to the teeth with information about the procedure. In addition to tackling the plaque that plagues his regular patients’ teeth, Dr. Parato volunteers at the Aloha Medical Mission clinic, a pastime that echoes his earlier work at nonprofit health centers.
