At Michael Yokoyama, D.D.S, our goal is to help you maintain excellent oral health and improve your overall quality of life. Our services include preventive, restorative, cosmetic, and periodontal dentistry. If you are in need of any professional dental treatment, you have come to the right place!
A dental implant is an ideal solution if you are missing one or more teeth. As a periodontist, Dr. Yokoyama specializes in the treatment planning and placement of dental implants. Once in place, the implant will serve as the root component of a dental prosthesis. Because it becomes a part of you, an implant is the next best thing to your natural tooth.

Cosmetic dentistry has grown significantly over the past few decades thanks to advancements in technology and technique. Cutting-edge equipment allows us to improve the size, shape, color, and overall appearance of an unsightly tooth. The cosmetic services we provide include teeth whitening, porcelain crowns, dental sealants, and dental veneers & bonding. Teeth whitening treatment is one of the most common procedures we perform due to its effectiveness. We may recommend a porcelain crown for both restorative and cosmetic purposes. The same is true for dental veneers. Both restorations are fabricated using porcelain because of its unmatched aesthetic value.
