Daly City enjoys enhanced oral health and beauty with cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry in Daly City from Dr. Leo Arellano

The term “cosmetic dentistry” is used to describe dental services intended to improve the appearance of smiles. However, many cosmetic treatments are beneficial to oral health as well as beauty. Dr. Leo Arellano helps patients from Daly City and across the Bay Area have the best of both worlds. Some of the options offered by the Doctor and his skilled team include:

  • Bonding – Composite resin bonding can repair a chipped, broken, or stained tooth and make it look like new again. It can also be used to fill gaps between teeth that are spaced too far apart.
  • Fillings – Tooth colored materials can be used to repair cavities and replace damaged or unsightly fillings, leaving the smile looking flawless and natural.
  • Inlays and onlays – When a tooth has an area of decay too large to be repaired with a simple filling, a porcelain inlay or onlay can effectively repair it discreetly and conservatively.
  • Veneers – Although primarily used for cosmetic improvement, porcelain veneers can also be used to protect and enhance a pitted, chipped, or fractured anterior tooth.
  • Invisalign – Discreet, virtually invisible Invisalign aligners create beautifully straight smiles. Straight teeth are easier to clean effectively, reducing the risk for periodontal disease.
  • Crowns – Beautiful porcelain dental crowns can provide strength and protection to damaged teeth as well as cover teeth that have esthetic imperfections.
  • Implants – Missing teeth can ruin the appearance of a smile as well as cause misalignment, jaw stress, jawbone resorption, and other problems. A dental implant covered with a porcelain crown can restore the appearance of the smile, prevent existing teeth from drifting into the empty space, and help maintain the jawbone.

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.
