Some of the services that may be used for a smile makeover in San Francisco

Smile makeover in San Francisco by Dr. Leo Arellano

A beautiful smile radiates happiness, health, vitality, and warmth. People in San Francisco and around the world are realizing the social and emotional value of a beautiful, healthy smile, and they are seeking ways to enhance their oral health and beauty. A smile makeover can improve the functional and aesthetic aspects of the teeth and gums using a variety of restorative and cosmetic dental services.

  • Teeth Whitening – Whether done in an hour in the dental office, or over a couple of weeks at home, this is one of the most popular, fastest, and most affordable ways to enhance a smile.
  • Bonding and tooth colored fillings – Cosmetic resin fillings can repair decay without leaving dark spots on the teeth as amalgam fillings do. The bonding material can also be used to repair chips, close gaps between teeth, and improve misshapen teeth, among other uses.
  • Porcelain Veneers – This treatment alone can change the appearance of the smile by covering issues such as permanent discoloration, mild misalignment, misshapen teeth, flaws in the enamel, and more.
  • Bridges or dental implants – A gap in the smile from a missing tooth can ruin the appearance of the smile and increase the risk of serious issues such as misalignment and gum disease. A dental bridge or an implant topped with a porcelain crown can fill the gap and look just like a beautiful natural tooth.
  • Porcelain inlays or onlays – When a tooth has decay that is too extensive for a filling, an inlay or onlay can restore the function and beauty of the tooth without significant alteration of healthy tooth structure. When made of porcelain, the repair is virtually imperceptible from the natural tooth.
  • Crowns – A porcelain crown, which looks just like a natural tooth, can strengthen and protect a tooth damaged by trauma or decay, or it can be used cosmetically to cover a misshapen tooth.
  • Invisalign – Misalignment can be corrected discreetly without the adolescent, metal-mouth stigma of traditional braces. The crystal-clear, smooth, comfortable aligners are barely perceptible when worn.

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.
