"I recently was involved in a Bike accident where I sustained many injuries, one of those injuries being my front teeth being knocked out. I was worried, depressed, stressed about finances & in a lot of pain. Luckily after making some calls I was referred to the offices of Dr. Patrick Yoshikane, & I am so fortunate I was. The offices knew my emergency & they were able to fit me in first thing in the morning to make sure I was okay & to fix my issue with my teeth. Upon arrival I was greeted by a wonderful staff who were so attentive, professional, & kind. My injuries were painful, I was upset, hurt & in shock still from the trauma & they did everything they could to make me relaxed, comfortable & at ease. The staff even took time to go over billing options so that I would be able to make it work with my finances which really was amazing to see them go above and beyond to breakdown & explain everything vs most places that just send you home with forms. After meeting with Dr. Yoshikane he reassured me I was in good hands & they were going to help me..... & they did! I left feeling like a new person, able to smile again & feel this burden of depression and stress lifted from shoulders. Every moment spent there was great, each person from their staff was so attentive & caring & answered all my questions, helped me, & made me comfortable. Also their follow up after my appointment has been so impressive & leaving the office I knew I found my new permanent Dentist office. Thank you so much again Dr. Yoshikane & Staff!!! Each of you helped me in my recovery so much & I look forward to seeing you all again & calling your offices my permanent Dentist home."- C.M. / Yelp / Nov 08, 2019
"I can't sing enough praises for Dr. Patrick Yoshikane and his team! Of all the dentists I have ever had, there is no other that can hold a candle to Dr. Yoshikane. I have been going to him for almost 2 years. Every time I go there, I always feel like I am at home with an on-call, personal dentist. I consider them like family that I could trust. I always have a great time, filled with laughter. Dr. Yoshikane's work is high quality, and every details, from their use of technology, super friendly knowledgeable, fun staff, to the ambiance. The best part is that my mouth is not swolen or feel that my face got punched from a couple of root canals. He is very gentle. He takes great pride in his work and treats his patients like the way he wants to be treat as a patient himself, with the utmost care. I trust him a ne his staff completely! They also work with me on prioritizing of what needs work on my teeth. Dr. Yoshikane and his team are a diamond in a ruff. Precious!"- J.S. / Yelp / Dec 08, 2019
"Dr. Yoshikane is amazing! I went in Friday morning to my dentist in south Orange County and found out that I needed a root canal. Since my general dentist does not do them. I was referred out to an endodontist who was very pushy and way overpriced. I called my husband in tears and he reached out to Dr. Yoshikane who totally took care of me. First of all it was Friday his day off and he said how quick can you get to my office. I went straight in. The office staff was warm and kind and did everything they could to help me be comfortable. Even when Dr. Yoshikane gave me shots to numb me I could barely feel it. I was in and out within 40 minutes. His service , dedication, perfectionism and commitment was amazing. He even reached out to me over the weekend to make sure I was doing okay. I would highly recommend him to any friends and family."- S.H. / Yelp / Oct 14, 2019
"From the moment I walked into the office I knew that I had made the right choice. The ladies up front were so helpful and kind. Anyone I came in contact with were friendly and welcoming. Thank you Dr. Yoshikane for keeping me at ease during my appointment. You took the time to review the recommended treatment to ensure and mitigate any additional problems. It is very evident that Dr. Yoshikane is committed to providing the best patient care. I am glad I took the leap of faith to seek dental care with Dr. Yoshikane. Not only was I happy with my care, I also left with a thank you gift. So kind! Amazing dentist, dental hygienist, dental assistants and office staff!"- A.C. / Yelp / May 05, 2023
"Dr. Yoshikane provided my treatment for my fillings and I can honestly say I’ve never felt more comfortable in a dentist’s chair. After being treated at his office, I feel very confident in my teeth and will continue to turn to him for all my dental needs in the future as I would recommend to anyone else! The practice also has the kindest staff that make you feel so welcome the moment you walk in the door and are also generous enough to give out complimentary cookies and coffee after my appointment was done. 12/10 service:)"- M.R. / Yelp / Dec 05, 2022
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.
