I am very glad to have found Dr. Castaneda. I have waited my entire life to have my lower teeth fixed and she performed an exceptional job on the procedure. Dr. Castaneda took her time and worked with precision. She made it look natural and enhanced my beautiful smile! Her staff is very friendly especially, Theresa. Office is clean and overlooking downtown San Francisco.

Nine years ago I researched many cosmetic dentists to replace my 18 year old porcelain veneers . It was obvious that Dr Castaneda was one of the best. She replaced my old of veneers with new ones and gave me an incredibly beautiful smile. I have referred friends to her with successful results over the years. She has been my primay [sic] dentist ever since.

About Hygienist: Sonya has been my dental hygienist for many years. I follow her health and dental hygiene recommendations and have a great smile. She is very knowledgeable and is able to track subtle changes in my mouth over the years. She provides at home oral hygiene techniques that have improved my gum and teeth health.

About Front Desk: Georgette is always friendly, accommodating and very efficient. She is able to answer all questions regarding cost and payment methods. She is very knowledgeable about dental insurance plans.

25 years of continual excellence My fourth mouthguard dental appliance was fitted quickly, requiring only a few adjustments. Dr. Castaneda’s instructions, “Bite, hold, slide,” as she shaped the appliance were punctuated by our continual conversation about travel. She was quick, and the visit was a pleasure. As a veteran with severe grinding and severe occasional TMJ attacks, I was a challenge years ago. Dr Castaneda treated me, fully restored my bite, guided me through the implant process, referred me to helpful specialists, and given me excellent advice. While painkillers help, they aren’t the best long-term treatment. Her staff has been great, scheduling December – January treatments to maximize insurance. Dr. Castaneda is an excellent dentist with amazing hands, efficient and quick, and has been a career-saver for me. She earns my highest recommendations.

Response from Aesthetika Dental Center – Rebecca Castaneda, DDS:

Thank you David for your kind words. As you know, our practice relies on the word-of-mouth referrals by our happy patients. If you have a friend or family member that you think can benefit from our care, please do not hesitate to pass on our information!! — Dr.C

Dental Cleaning I’ve been a patient of Dr. Castaneda for two decades now, and I feel most fortunate to be a receipient [sic] of her good care and her genuine interest and concern that my dentition remain healthy and aesthetically pleasing. On my recent visit, Sonya cleaned my teeth. As always, she did a superb job in accomplishing that task. Sonya is adept at getting out all the stains and built up plaque without causing pain, especially around the gums. While Sonya is cleaning your teeth, she makes observations of your general dentition and offers suggestions and recommendations on how you might improve your caring for your teeth. If caring for your teeth and receiving the best possible care for them is a priority in you life, you would do well to seek Dr. Castaneda’s care and that of her staff.

Always a pleasant visit For someone who is so frightened of the dentist (even for cleanings) I always have the best experience. Everyone is so friendly, calming, and welcoming. My fear has gone down ever since I started to come here. They always make me feel at ease.

Five Star rating11/3/15

Perfect work and wonderful treatment I had to get crowns on 4 front teeth and I was really anxious about it. Dr. Castaneda and Georgette out my anxieties at ease and the procedure was surprisingly painless. Dr. Castaneda personally accompanied me to the lab that makes the crowns to custom match my tooth coloring. For now, I have temporaries until the final crowns are placed in 2 weeks, but even the temporaries look so much better than my teeth looked before. I feel more confident about my smile already. If the temporary work looks this good, I’m confident that the permanent crowns will give me the flawless smile I’ve always wanted. Thank you!!

I have been seeing Dr C for many years. In my younger years, lack of good dentistry left me with lots of problems .I am happy to say Dr C put a smile back on my face. And, now with her help I keep one each and every day. If you are looking for a great dentist with good aesthetic skills (a perfectionist is more accurate) Dr C is a great choice.

Dr. Rebecca Castaneda is an exceptionally capable and sensitive proctodontist; a true professional.

Since 2006, when my regular dentist retired, I’ve been treated by Dr. Castaneda. First, she prepared my Treatment Plan - a full mouth diagram with every tooth condition noted. Each of her recommendations was carefully explained to me, with their alternatives. Over the passing years, she updated my Treatment Plan diagram as problems were resolved and changes noted. I keep my current diagram near the bathroom mirror, to remember which teeth need careful flossing, etc. Dr. Castaneda is a respected professional; her prosthodontic skills are outstanding. She listens carefully to my concerns and thoughtfully explains alternative treatments until I thoroughly understand them. Dr. Castaneda is a perfectionist in everything she does - for me, the best dental procedures carried out flawlessly.

I found Dr. Castaneda's office by searching for dentists in the SF Bay Area. Her practice had a lot of of positive reviews, so I scheduled a complimentary consultation that I attended today. Dr. Castaneda definitely lived up to the positive reviews as she is both very knowledgeable and friendly. I will definitely be returning!

Five Star rating9/2015

Always a pleasure! I know, we're talking about dental work here, but Dr. Castaneda always takes great care and is concerned that my smile looks the best. Today was just cleaning, but over the years she has given me a new tooth implant, bleaching, invisalign, a crown. I put a high priority on the health and appearance of my mouth, so I will continue to turn to Dr. Castaneda.

Since 2006 I’ve been treated by Dr. Castaneda, an exceptionally capable prosthodontist.  First, she prepared my Treatment Plan - a full mouth diagram with every tooth condition noted.  She carefully explained each of her recommendations to me, and my alternatives.  Over the years, she updated my Treatment Plan diagram as problems were resolved.  My diagram is next to my bathroom mirror, to remember which teeth need careful flossing.

I have known Dr Castaneda for more that 10 years and not only she is a great person but an amazing dentist. My teeth look unbelievably beautiful because of her. She pays extra attention in detail and she will never let you go unless your teeth look perfect. Her artistic work with cosmetic dentistry is the best. She is a very good listener and she understands what the customer wants and with her extended knowledge & experience she delivers 100%. Her assistants are very helpful with very high standards. Dina who is her front office manager is very professional, super friendly, understanding and very organized. I highly recommend Dr Castaneda to anyone who needs dental work & wants to have the most beautiful smile.

No matter what challenges you are facing — oral health issues or a smile that you are unhappy with, Dr. Rebecca Castaneda works miracles. Her expertise is in transforming smiles that help you live a fuller life. She recognizes how important a smile can be in determining how you are perceived, personally and professionally. Her small skilled hands are quite adept at maneuvering in tight spaces. She has been my dentist for more than 20 years. Her professionalism and expertise work speak volumes.

I have had a significant renovation of my teeth done by Dr. Castaneda. I researched the possibilities before hand and concluded that her combination of background as an artist and decades of experience with cosmetic dentistry would be best for my needs. I was correct. The rest of the staff are great to deal with as well. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

Nadia F on Yelp
Five Star rating10/6/2014

Expert staff and very helpful. I’m an Italian student, I’ll be here in San Francisco for some months, so it’s difficult for me to understand everything, but Doctor Castaneda and her staff were very understanding and patient with me and helped me with everything, even to be in contact with a surgery studio to resolve my problem with wisdom tooth. Highly recommended.

Absolutely completely and totally recommend Dr.Castaneda! She was fabulous. After struggling for 8 years with my smile, she fixed it and has made it look perfect. The coloring, size and shape are amazing. If you need someone, she’s the best!

William G on Yelp
Four Star rating7/28/2014

I have been seeing Dr. Castanada for well over five years, both for some serious issues I had, as well as routine cleanings.  I have found her and her staff to be excellent in all respects.  In fact, last year when I moved to the East Bay, I decided to stay with her for my dental needs even though it’s a hassle to come over to the City. I think the occasional negative review is the exception.  In fact, as shrill and  hysterical as one of them sounds, it seems that person has some issues that have little or nothing to do with the quality of the service.

My last dental check up and cleaning at Dr. Castaneda’s office was professional and comfortable as always. I highly recommend coming this office and the atmosphere is way cool!

Dr. Castaneda is one of the best dentist I have met!!! And I can tell you from experience is not easy to find dentist that are honest as she is and more important a doctor who really cares for her patients and is not there to just make money. I have gone to see many other dentist after I felt the need to stop seeing my destiny who had been treating me for more than 7yrs ( since I was a teen)... Somehow my old dentist became very dishonest with his treatment plan that I decided to look around in hope to find some one better! From the very fist day I saw Dr. Castaneda, she treated me with respect and honesty. She took the time to listen to my story and studied my case before recommending the treatment --- she knows so much about the latest technology and up to date treatment that I can honestly tell you that you will NOT find some one better than D. Casteneda!!! Dina, her office Manager is the most friendly person you can ever picture! She is always ready to help you with any of your questions and she takes the time to work with you to understand your insurance benefits before making any commitments. They both r just far the BEST!!! They both have all the best qualities and skills sets you can ever ask from a dentist experience and most important the human touch that is hard to find in a doctor at times! I’m very lucky to have found them!

I have been a patient of Dr. Castaneda for many years. She is truly an artist and master technician. She not only fixes whatever dental issues you may have, but also treats you with love and respect. She loves being a prosthodontist and it shows in her dedication to the perfection of her work. You only get one set of teeth therefore, it’s important that you have “the best” to make sure you keep them at their best. Dr. Castaneda and her staff does that.

“Dina, Dr Rebecca Castaneda, and Natasha are so great here that I have to write a review. They provide such great service when accommodating my dental needs. I came as a new client a year ago and found them on yelp for clear braces service and so far I can definitely see results fast. You can tell that they really listen and care about your needs and your overall goal for your teeth. They are my very first favorite dentist location that I actually enjoy coming to when you think of the dental office. I would continue to refer and recommend friends and family here, just so they can receive that great experience and service from a great knowledgable team too.”

“Rebecca is my sweet sweet dentist. She’s gentle, warm, always understanding of your needs, and ready to answer your questions. If you’re looking for bright smiles to go with your style, she’s your doctor! hope you have a sense of humor, because Dina certainly does! She’ll greet you with a smile, make sure you’re entertained, and above all, brought up to speed with your treatment plan. Natasha is funny, warm, and very understanding of my needs when I’m in the chair - and out of it! She’s very understanding of patients with a sensitive mouth or low pain threshold! Sonia turns teeth cleaning into fun! Great conversation, warm personality - she’s a joy to work with!”

I came here to do one thing. To have my teeth whitened. I figured, I should give these babies a nice whitening job before I gunk it up again with coffee stains and what not from my business meetings. I had received recommendation to come to Aesthetika Dental Center and I must say, the service was wonderful. Dr. Castaneda was very professional and .. as all the reviews state, she is a very glamorous dentist!

I fully enjoyed my time here. Everyone was very friendly and I recommend Dr. Castaneda for your dentistry needs.

My dental work has been in the hands of Dr. Castaneda (and Dr. Berkovich) for about 2 1/2 years. Dr. Castaneda has made sure that the end result is PERFECT - and it is. She is more than a prosthedontist. She’s a artist, a scientist, a perfectionist, and mostly, a caring physician

I never thought a dentist could be glamorous until I met Dr. Castaneda. She also has a mellow, maternal vibe that puts you instantly at ease-- helpful when you’re trying not to drown on your own saliva while having all of your fillings removed and replaced.

Her dental hygienists and front desk staff are also great. They’ve been oh-so-patient with my constant rescheduling. Dr. Diamond is wonderful for twice-yearly cleanings-- a warm-hearted, avuncular tsk, tsk-er (I promise I’ll buy that Sonicare!)
