Did you know you can rebuild your smile? It’s easier than you think, thanks to dental bonding. If your smile is suffering because of chips, cracks, or other signs of damage, dental bonding can help. Dr. Kern Agader at Dental Perfections serving the Kapolei and Ewa Beach areas, offers dental bonding to rebuild and enhance your smile.

Bonding uses a liquid material called composite, which has unique properties. The composite can be matched to the color of your teeth and sculpted to harmonize with the contours of your teeth. Once the liquid composite is placed, it’s hardened with a blue light, giving you a restorative treatment that enhances the beauty of your smile.

A bonding treatment isn't just beautiful; it's also strong. That's because the composite is chemically bonded to your tooth structure, so your bonding treatment will stand up to the most vigorous chewing. Dental bonding is a lasting way to enhance and strengthen your smile.

Dental bonding is one of the most versatile cosmetic dental services available. You can hide aesthetic problems like these:

  • Cracks and fracture lines from trauma
  • Lost tooth structure from an injury
  • Chips and erosion from aging or wear-and-tear
  • Enamel defects and discolorations from genetics

Dental bonding allows you to change the size, color and shape your teeth to provide a more harmonious smile. Dental bonding isn’t just versatile; it’s popular too, because it is natural-looking and blends with your smile.

Dental bonding is often combined with reshaping and recontouring, to sculpt and enhance your smile. Thanks to dental bonding, your smile can be uniquely beautiful, and uniquely yours. To find out more about dental bonding talk with an expert. Call Dr. Kern Agader at Dental Perfections serving patients in the Kapolei and Ewa Beach areas today.

Porcelain dental veneers are commonly used to give patients whole smile makeovers. You may be surprised by just how different your smile can look with just a few strategically placed veneers and regular dental maintenance. Get more information about dental veneers so that you can confidently discuss this tooth treatment with our cosmetic dentist Dr. Kern Agader at Dental Perfections serving the Kapolei and Ewa Beach areas.

Why Dental Veneers?
If you’re dealing with major tooth damage or discoloration, veneers may be the best cosmetic solution to consider. Although your teeth may look broken and worn down on the outside, they could be strong and healthy on the inside. That’s an ideal case for veneers. You should ask for veneers if you are unhappy with the outer appearance of your teeth and want a smile boost.

How Will Veneers Look and Feel?
Most modern veneers are made using white porcelain material so that they will look just like your natural tooth enamel. They are wafer-thin and translucent but also very durable. Dr. Kern will only need to remove a small amount of enamel from your front teeth to make room for your veneers. Once applied, they’ll look and feel smooth and polished—no more ridges, cracks, or stubborn stains.

How Long Will Veneers Hold and Look Good?
The answer to this question depends largely on how committed you are to maintaining good dental hygiene and keeping your veneers free from plaque buildup. It’s possible for veneers to last up to 20 years or more. They will stay white and well-formed throughout that time as long as you brush often, floss, and have them checked periodically.

Get All the Answers You Need
All of the pressing questions you have about veneers and cosmetic dentistry can be answered at your initial consultation with our cosmetic dentist Dr. Kern Agader at Dental Perfections serving patients in the Kapolei and Ewa Beach areas. Call (808) 674-8895 today for an appointment.

Cosmetic Dentistry SmileWho wouldn't want a great looking, healthy smile? However, many people suffer from poor self-images because their smiles lack that WOW factor in alignment, color and tooth shape. At Dental Perfections in Kapolei, Hawaii and serving the Kapolei and Ewa Beach areas your cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kern Agader, can provide the boost your smile requires to help you feel and look your best. His menu of aesthetic services can be customized to fit your particular needs, and he values your input in the makeover process.

Rejuvenating your smile

It begins with a consultation with your cosmetic dentist serving the Kapolei and Ewa Beach areas. He'll ensure your mouth is free of health problems, such as decay or periodontal disease; having established that, Dr. Agader will develop ways to make your smile bright, straight and even.

This is where your input comes in. Think about how you want your smile to change. Most teens and adults know what bothers them about their smiles, but be sure to verbalize those problems when you speak with your dentist. Be specific about tooth color, shape, arrangement, defects such as cracks, gaps and pits, and whatever else you feel is a persistent problem.

Together, you and Dr. Agader will put together a treatment plan. It will fit your lifestyle, budget, and best of all, the results you desire. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says that highly skilled dentists, such as Dr. Agader, have the tools and techniques to makeover any smile and to optimize its health, too.

Cosmetic treatments at Dental Perfections

Professional teeth whitening Better than retail products such as strips and rinses, professional whitening at Dental Perfections removes years of organic stains embedded in tooth enamel. Available as an in-office or an at-home treatment, teeth whitening brightens enamel by as much as eight shades, and because it's supervised by your dentist, you know your teeth and gums will be safe from sensitivity issues.

Composite resin bonding Using a tooth-colored material made of glass and acrylic, Dr. Agader repairs chips, cracks, gaps and other defects which mar healthy teeth. Applied in layers, shaped, cured and polished, this resin is durable and natural looking. Defects truly do disappear, and the process is quick, too.

Tooth-colored fillings Rather than amalgam fillings, your dentist can utilize composite resin to restore decayed teeth. Bonded with a special dental light, composite resin fillings are seamless, naturally-colored and durable. They require less enamel removal than their metal counterparts, too.

Porcelain crowns These tooth-shaped jackets of fine ceramic cover and support teeth marred by decay, injury and more. They boost smile aesthetics with their perfect color and sheen, and they avoid needless extractions, protect after root canal therapy and restore dental implants.

Porcelain veneers Thin, tooth-colored and resilient, veneers disguise flawed teeth, beautifying shape, shade, spacing and more. Bonded permanently on the front of selected teeth, laminates also add strength.

Teeth WhiteningThe season of white, sandy beaches is almost here - will you be ready? This summer, don't just focus on getting tanner or losing those last five pounds before heading out to enjoy all that Kapolei and Ewa Beach have to offer. Get yourself truly ready to shine by visiting your favorite cosmetic dentist, Kern K. Agader, DMD at Dental Perfections.

The Importance of Teeth Whitening

The truth is, if you aren't sporting a brilliant white smile, you simply aren't going to look and feel as amazing as you deserve to this summer. No matter how thin, tan and toned you are, if you're embarrassed by your smile, it will show. You won't smile and laugh as much, and you may even avoid social outings altogether if your teeth are bad enough. Visiting Dr. Agader, your Kapolei and Ewa Beach cosmetic dentist, is a great way to reclaim that beautiful, confident personality that is sure to make you shine.

Professional Vs. Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening

With over-the-counter tooth whitening creams, pastes and strips available at every drugstore in the Ewa Beach area, you may wonder if it is really necessary to visit a cosmetic dentist for professional teeth whitening at all. Can't you just get the same whitening from a store?

No, you cannot! Professional teeth whitening from Dr. Agader is fast, safe and very effective. Plus, you never have to worry about damaging your teeth or ending up with uneven whitening, as all our whitening treatments are custom made for your unique set of teeth. When you visit your Kapolei and Ewa Beach cosmetic dentist for teeth whitening, you get real, reliable results! Our Opalescence custom bleaching kits are easy to use, and allow you to whiten at home when it's convenient for you!

This summer, don't even think about heading to the beach without looking and feeling your best. Come on in to see Dr. Agader at Dental Perfections, serving Kapolei, Ewa Beach, and Makakilo. Make this summer your best one yet!

VeneersHas an accident, trauma or years of poor oral hygiene taken a toll on your smile? If so, you may feel like you are stuck with a damaged, discolored or embarrassing smile forever. Thankfully, nothing could be further than the truth when you visit Kapolei cosmetic dentist Kern Agader, DMD, serving Kapolei, Makakilo, and Ewa Beach.

Whether your teeth are discolored, misshapen, gapped, crooked or worn away, veneers from your Kapolei and Ewa Beach cosmetic dentist Dr. Agader may be just what you need! Unlike other dental treatments, such as fillings or tooth whitening treatments, which work with your teeth, veneers completely cover the front surface of your teeth, allowing you to have the re-do you've always wanted but never thought was possible!

Made out of very thin pieces of porcelain, veneers completely cover up a variety of dental imperfections. They can make your teeth longer, remove unsightly gaps between teeth, give you a pearly white smile or even completely change your tooth size and shape! No matter how bad your teeth look now, veneers can make them look like new.

Unfortunately, not all Kapolei and Makakilo residents who want veneers will automatically be a good candidate for the procedure. Therefore, if you are considering having this amazing procedure done, you will want to make an appointment with Dr. Agader to make sure that you qualify. He will need to check the current condition of your teeth and gums, assess your medical history and inquire about what benefits you are hoping to achieve.

If you are one of the many people who qualify for this procedure, however, get ready to be amazed. You won't believe how a beautiful, high-quality set of custom porcelain veneers can improve not only your looks, but also your confidence, your self-esteem, and your life! Call and set up an appointment for a consultation today.
