About smile makeovers

Over your lifetime, you may have had injuries, dental issues, and other complications that have made your smile less than perfect. A smile makeover at Patrick Yoshikane, D.D.S. is a unique treatment plan of restorative and cosmetic procedures that can aid in improving the appearance of your smile and overall oral health. A smile makeover may consist of tooth whitening (in-office or at-home treatments), cosmetic bonding, and replacing metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings. Your smile makeover may also include restorations, such as bridges or crowns, to fill in gaps in your smile. If you want to know more about making over your smile so that it's healthy and beautiful, make an appointment with Dr. Patrick Yoshikane at his practice in Orange, CA to receive your custom treatment plan.

Best Candidates

A smile makeover may be helpful if you would like to enhance the look of your teeth, or if you desire multiple cosmetic or restorative procedures. Dr. Yoshikane will personalize your smile makeover treatment plan to fit your goals and address your concerns, but it may include whitening to address discoloration and stains on your enamel. Other cosmetic procedures that may be included in your plan are bonding and contouring to correct the length and shape of your teeth, and to mask minor openings between teeth. Restorations (bridges and crowns) may be used to replace a lost tooth or teeth. At Patrick Yoshikane, D.D.S., we offer custom restorations to ensure they match your natural teeth for a seamless look.

Prior to performing any cosmetic treatments, Dr. Yoshikane will have to ensure that your gums and teeth are healthy. If you have any restrictive oral health issues, such as a dental malocclusion or periodontal disease, then this will have to be treated first.

What To Expect

Each smile makeover is unique so Dr. Yoshikane will discuss exactly what to expect throughout your treatment, such as the number of visits you might require. He can work with you to plan out your appointment(s) to complete all of the steps in your makeover. Local anesthesia will be needed before a few of your treatments, but other sedation options may be suggested if you need help relaxing due to dental worries or anxieties. During your smile makeover, Dr. Yoshikane, along with his team, will be available to answer any questions or help you feel more comfortable.

Follow-Up

As soon as your smile makeover is complete, you should maintain the health and brilliance of your smile with an ideal home oral care regimen (both flossing and brushing daily). Along with daily maintenance, you need to schedule dental examinations and cleanings at Patrick Yoshikane, D.D.S. so Dr. Yoshikane can monitor your progress. With proper care, the outcomes of your smile makeover should last for several years. Touch-up procedures every couple of years, such as teeth whitening, might help to refresh your smile. Restorations and veneers might also have to be replaced or repaired, which will all be discussed with Dr. Yoshikane during your visits.

anticipated costs

During your initial consultation, Dr. Yoshikane can help create a smile makeover plan that matches both your goals and budget. He can estimate the price of your treatment program and go over payment options we take, like low-interest dental financing. The cosmetic treatments in a smile makeover are usually not covered by dental insurance, although some restorations may be partly insured. Our office will contact your insurance carrier to ascertain your exact coverage and personal expenses.
