Enhance a smile with cosmetic dentistry services near Daly City

Enhance a smile with cosmetic dentistry services by Dr. Leo Arellano

From major changes to minor repairs, Dr. Leo Arellano and his talented team offer cosmetic dentistry services that transform smiles in Daly City and across the Bay Area. Whether teeth are discolored, misaligned, misshapen, chipped, decayed, fractured, or missing, we can help. They can change the shape, size, or color of teeth, lengthen short teeth, close gaps, align them, or replace them if they are missing.

The services offered to enhance smiles include, but are not limited to:

  • Gum disease treatment – A healthy mouth is an essential foundation for a beautiful smile. If gum disease is present, we will address it before commencing cosmetic treatment.
  • Teeth whitening – Both one hour in-office bleaching and take-home kits are offered to meet the needs of their patients. Teeth whitening is a small step that can make a big difference in the beauty of a smile. Often, this treatment is all that is needed to transform a smile.
  • Invisalign – This option is a terrific alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign’s clear aligner trays are discreet, comfortable, and convenient.
  • Veneers – Thin, lustrous porcelain shells can be placed on the front surfaces of the visible teeth for a complete smile makeover in just two or three weeks.
  • Cosmetic fillings – Composite resin can be used for tooth colored fillings rather than unsightly dental amalgam that leaves dark spots in the treated teeth.
  • Porcelain inlays and onlays – These beautiful porcelain restorations blend in beautifully with natural tooth enamel. They can be used to repair large cavities while retaining the healthy portion of the tooth structure.
  • Dental bonding – The composite resin used in tooth colored fillings can also be used to lengthen short teeth, fill gaps between teeth, cover chips or cracks, or change the shape of teeth.
  • Gum shaping – When too much gum tissue is covering the teeth, it can make them appear short and result in a “gummy smile.” Gum contouring can remove excess tissue creating beautiful pink frames for the teeth, truly highlighting the smile. Alternatively, gum grafts can replace tissue lost to gum recession and cover any exposed roots.

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.
