Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry has skyrocketed in popularity over the past few decades. At Michael Yokoyama, D.D.S, we specialize in several cosmetic services aimed at improving the appearance of your teeth and overall smile. From minor cosmetic changes to full-tooth restorations, we have got you covered!

Ridge Augmentation

Sometimes we have to take a tooth out because it is suffering from tooth decay, and it is so infected we can’t save it. We remove one infected tooth to save other teeth. If we do have to remove a tooth, we don’t like to leave an empty socket. Instead of leaving you with empty sockets after we remove a tooth, we can repair your jaw. One of the procedures that we do regularly to help our patients is called ridge augmentation. Let Michael Yokoyama, D.D.S give you more information about ridge augmentation.

"Dr. Yokoyama did an outstanding job on my gum graft procedure. My dental hygienist tried to guess which gum was grafted and she couldn’t because Dr. Y did such a great job. Highly recommend him and his considerate team." - Lucas K.
