"Dr. Yoshikane and his staff are awesome. They have been my wife and her families dentist forever and have been my dentist for the last two years. They helped me out recently at the last minute with my wisdom teeth. I had been putting it off for 20 plus years because they never hurt and out of the blue the one on my upper left jaw became inflamed and began causing me pretty bad pain. I gave them a call and they got me in to check it out and after seeing the inflammation the set me up to get them out. Dr. Yoshikane asked me if I wanted sedation or local and I said local. I am not a big fan of sedation and dental work doesn't weird me out. The procedure went great and Dr. Yoshikane and his assistant checked on my pain level throughout the whole procedure to make sure I was not in pain. It was a great experience and I would recommend him to anyone local looking for a great dental office who does everything they can to help their patients as quickly as they can."- G.S. / Yelp / Nov 09, 2018
"Dr. Yoshikane is amazing! I can tell you from my very first visit. I have found my forever Dentist.I had prior dental work done and I was totally unhappy with my results. I really didn't like to smile much. I had a cap on my front tooth and the post underneath was black and my prior dentist didn't clean it up so you were able to see it through the cap Dr. Yoshikane was able to clean up the post and made a cap that looks so real that you cannot tell it is fake. From my experience this man will not let you walk out of his office unless he is happy with his work and you're happy. I recommend Dr. Yoshikane and his staff for all your dental wants and needs."- F.O. / Yelp / Oct 04, 2019
"I'm new to the OC area, and found this place.. thank God I did!! They took care of me from the second I walked into the door. I came in to fix a chipped tooth, and now it looks better than it ever did! The ladies at the front desk are angels on earth.. they sent me off with FRESHLY BAKED COOKIES. Wow, it is so rare to walk into a business and be surrounded by such genuine and caring people like this!! I will be back in December for a good ol' cleaning. I've never said this before in my life- IM EXCITED FOR MY NEXT TRIP TO THE DENTIST! Thank y'all for everything Update: I went back to Dr. Yoshikane for 3 cavities.. he filled them all in under an hour! I had no pain, and was even laughing while he did it because he is so good at making you feel calm and comfortable. His assistant is so sweet (just like everyone else in the office), she even gave me a blanket because I was nervous. Turns out, I had nothing to be nervous about! THANK YOU"- L.P. / Yelp / Sep 09, 2019
"Dr. Yoshikane is a true artist! He does such beautiful work and is 100% committed to his clients and the quality of his work. He really makes you feel comfortable and has a wonderful and supportive staff. When you have dental work done, you want it done by a perfectionist. That’s is Mr. Yoshikane."- J.M. / Google / Sep 30, 2019
"I have been going to Dr Yoshikane for several years now. He provides excellent care with the most advanced technology. If you ask him "how does this work", or "how are you going to do that", he will patiently explain. I have had a lot of dental work done (fillings, crowns, extractions, root canals and an implant) and I have always had the best outcome with Dr Yoshikane! The front staff are wonderful, as well as the hygienist. Pricing is not any higher than any other dentists I have been to and.... THEY HAVE COFFEE AND FRESH BAKED COOKIES!!!! So I leave with a coffee and a cookie! Can't get better than that!"- H.A. / Yelp / Aug 28, 2019
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.
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.
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.
