An array of cosmetic dental procedures is available at Leo Arellano DDS PC

TV, magazines, advertisements, billboards, and other media offer a never-ending stream of stunning smiles, demonstrating the importance of oral beauty in today’s image conscious society. Smile enhancement can have a dramatic effect on appearance. From subtle changes to major repairs, beautiful smiles are more accessible than ever; they are no longer just for the rich and famous. Even simple cosmetic dental procedures can result in a smile that boosts confidence and increases self-esteem.

Dr. Leo Arellano can use one, two, or a combination of several of the following procedures to restore function, structure, and form and create naturally beautiful smiles in San Francisco CA:

  • Teeth Whitening – Discolored, stained teeth can sparkle again in as little as an hour with our in-office whitening. At-home kits are available as well for patients who would prefer to brighten their teeth gradually. We have different systems such as Brite Smile® and Opalescence® to meet the needs of our patients.
  • Bonding – Dental bonding with composite resin can fill cavities, reshape teeth, fill gaps, and cover chips, with little to no tooth shaping required.
  • Inlays and Onlays – Porcelain inlays and onlays can repair large cavities without significant tooth reduction.
  • Crowns – We strive to save natural teeth whenever possible; dental crowns can preserve teeth that are too weak to remain functional. Even though the tooth must be reduced for placement, this treatment is preferable to extraction.
  • Bridges – A dental bridge can replace a missing tooth while remaining undetectable in the smile.
  • Invisalign – Discreet orthodontics can correct misalignment for a beautifully straight smile.
  • Porcelain Veneers – Thin shells of lustrous porcelain can cover many esthetic flaws such as chips, pits, discoloration, and shape, to name just a few.
  • Dental Implants – Implants can fill spaces caused by missing teeth without affecting any of the existing teeth.
We are here to help Call us at 415-881-4343 or Schedule an Appointment today

Whatever the perceived flaws in a smile may be, we treat them with the healthiest, most conservative and effective procedures possible. A healthy mouth is the foundation for a naturally beautiful smile. We will develop a treatment plan that restores oral health, preserves natural tooth structure, and provides stunning results.

I've been going to Dr. Arellano for about 20 years and I continue because of the excellent care and treatment I get with him and his whole office team. He is both professional and personable.
Recently I had a newer technique of gum surgery/grafting at his office called, "Pinhole Surgical Technique of gum grafting." I personally found this to be much easier to handle than the other style of gum grafting that I received years ago for the other side of my mouth. That worked, it was where part of my roof of my mouth was cut and surgically sewn onto the gum. However, I much prefer the pinhole technique. It was actually the easiest dental work I've had (beyond regular cleaning.) It didn't take too long and it didn't feel uncomfortable getting it done. I was swollen, but I think that happens regardless of what kind of gum grafting is done. I needed ibuprofin for a few days, no major pain. It healed well and just felt easy. I am not a fan of having any work done in my mouth because that's me, but this was the easiest work I've ever had done.
So, if you are debating which kind of surgery to do I personally would recommend the pinhole surgery.

We've gone to Dr Arellano for many years and have never been disappointed with any of the work he's done. Recently my husband broke a tooth and Leo got him in and had the tooth repaired within a few short hours. Service like that is very hard to finds these days. His office staff is fantastic. Nice people you are always glad to see. I would highly recommend Dr Arellano to anyone who is searching for an honest, competent, well trained dentist.
