A four star review means to me that you had a good experience but something could go wrong in the future. I’m happy to report that I have been to see Dr. C, Sonya the hygienist, and Georgette the dental assistant on several occasions and nothing has gone wrong! No aching teeth, stabbed tongue or funny after taste. Everything feels great and I’m happy with the way I was treated.
I’ll be back next year...

I really enjoyed my visit with them. How often can you say that about your dentist? And, it was a painless experience...Georgette really took her time to make sure she didn’t kill me in the mold process.
However, maybe they could replenish their cookie jar with a fresh supply of chocolate cookies?

Dentophobia can sometimes strike fear into the hearts of the unbelievers, but thanks to offices like The Aesthetika Dental Center you can leave your fears at home. Once you enter their office you are greeted with such beautiful smiles you know you are in the right place, and I am talking about Rebecca and Dina of course. Dr. Rebecca Castaneda carries herself with such poise and confidence, she leaves no stone unturned. And when she tells you she is going to do something she delivers on that promise. They make you feel at ease and explain everything to you, over communicating in a fashion that I expect and feel necessary. Dina will track appointments and keep you up-to-date with accurate emails and messages. They will make you beautiful in no time!!!! Thank you Aesthetika!

Dr. Castaneda Is an outstanding dentist and really helped me a great deal with my reconstruction work after getting a not so great implant from a Dr. in Marin. Dr. C took her time to carefully create a bridge that is so beautiful and natural you would think it was natural. I like going to the office for cleanings and I feel assured that I will always get excellent work. I highly recommend Dr. C for teeth reconstruction or any other dentistry procedures. I would also like to add that, HAD I KNOWN to do my homework about implants and the wide range of quality that you could end up with, I would have gone immediately to Dr. C.. Although it cost me 2+ years to complete my reconstruction, it was SO worth it.

I have been going to Dr. Castaneda for 16 years. She is a wonderful dentist and very compassionate. A friend referred her to me because of a bad experience I had with another dentist. She has been gentle and sincere and I highly recommend her work.

Yes, I highly recommend Dr. Castaneda and her team. She is still my dentist, and I have never regretted the restorative work I had done with her many years ago. I first met her when she was part of the team that worked on my son after a sporting accident which knocked out his front teeth. I can attest that she was highly recommended by her peers and she did beautiful work with one of them to use crown-lengethening surgery to save the root of a tooth and affix a crown. That work has held up. Her hygienists are also excellent and I feel that I am getting excellent all-around care. Thank you to Dr. Castaneda and her team.

Dina, Sonia and Dr.C have striven to make the experience as professional and patient-centered as possible. Many thanks to them for doing such a good job.

A dentist office has never been so good. Attention to quality care with a knack for good esthetics and outcomes. I would highly recommend.
"Dr. Rebecca Castaneda has been my general dentist and prosthodonist for over a decade, and I couldn’t be any happier with her work. She has dealt with some very complex restoration challenges, including multiple implant crowns, with patience and perseverance. And always with the goal of achieving perfection. Simply put, Dr. C is an artiste. The staff is a professional and supportive, and Sonja is a welcome addition as a dedicated and very competent hygienist. Dr. Castaneda’s work is of the highest quality, and I highly recommend the Aesthetika office."
"Dr. Castaneda gave me the smile I’ve always dreamed of having! I couldn’t be happier with my beautiful smile and the kindness I always receive from Dr. Castaneda and her staff. My treatment included implants and veneers on my front teeth and the results are exceptional. Dr. Castaneda is a true artist and her staff is very attentive to all of my needs. I will continue to be a loyal patient of Dr. Castaneda’s and highly recommend her. About Hygienists: Sonia is so wonderful! She lights up a room and is very thorough with my cleanings."
"Just a few words… experience professionalism, true artistry. If you are looking for amazing results, look no further. It seems to me that Dr. Castaneda looks at each of her patients like a sculptor looking at clay before turning him/her into a work of art. Incredible attention to detail and perfection, I’ve been coming here for 7 years now and she never ceases to amaze me."
Pros: Simply the best. Cons: none.
"My dental work has been in the hands of Dr. Castenada (and Dr. Berkovich) for about 2 ½ years. Dr Castenada has made sure the end result is PERFECT – and it is. She is more than a prosthedontist. She’s an artist, a scientist, a perfectionist and mostly, a caring physician who designed my beautiful smile". Sherri H San Jose California
“Simply the best! She did a cosmetic dental makeover for me, my teeth look beautiful, and no one knows that hey are not real. I highly recommend her to everybody.”
“Fear of Dentists eased, two thumbs up!”
“Dr. Castaneda was able to get me past my age-old fear of dentists and started treating me in 2003. I had let my fears keep me away far too long, and therefore needed quite a bit of work. She was professional, soothing, and her expertise was apparent from the start."
"Her staff made sure that I didn’t make too many escapes and worked with me on insurance concerns. Now, in May 2005 after cleanings, general work, replaced silver crowns with porcelain, inlays, and no more silver fillings I finally feel that I have I have a “healthy” mouth. Further, she talked me into Invisalign. I wore these clear, plastic, removable braces for a year or so and am ecstatic with my new smile. In fact, I can’t stop smiling. A little BriteSmile ® along the way didn’t hurt."
“Damaged teeth, Dental makeover”
“I had VERY badly damaged teeth from years of grinding. Rebecca provided me with a few treatment options, and we ultimately agreed to 13 crowns/veneers (7 top and 6 down) along with some other ancillary treatments. I am extremely pleased with the result, although the process was not without some pain.
Pros: The new teeth look and feel great, which was my ultimate goal. Rebecca and her staff, (Kiki and Sonia) were helpful and responsive.
They all try hard to minimize the discomfort of the process.
Cons: The dental makeover process was long and expensive. On most of my visits, my appointment started a little late (a minor inconvenience, even for someone as high-strung as I am.)”
“Great Hygiene experience”
“I had a cleaning done at Dr. Castaneda’s office and that was a pleasant experience. The staff offered many accommodations and that was a delight. I like the fact that they did a follow up on me.”
“General Raving review”
“I look amazing! Everyone at work can’t believe the difference. I light up a room now!”
“Lost tooth replacement, comprehensive mouth reconstruction”
“Years ago I lost my front teeth to a motorcycle accident. For years I lived with a fixed bridge replacing those lost teeth. The bridge looked like a row of Chiclets. Additionally, my dentition was a plethora of silver fillings sprinkled with a few gold crowns that were like giant boxcars, ill fitting at the gum line causing soreness and gum bleeding. Finally, with age my teeth were simply worn down and discolored.
After a thorough exam, Dr. C orchestrated a comprehensive dental make-over plan that would include orthodontics and an anterior gum augmentation as I had lost bone tissue with the loss of my front teeth. With these interventions accomplished, Dr. C began the process of replacing almost all of my teeth with porcelain crowns and two fixed bridges. The results were a monument to the dental arts! Dr. C’s biggest challenge was the anterior bridge.
Through her artistic ability and clinical skills she was able to make the fixed, artificial front bridge appear as individual teeth actually emerging from the gum margin with each tooth having the half-moon shape presentation at the gum margin as with natural teeth. The color, texture, and translucence of the bridge matched the adjacent crowns perfectly. Dr. C gave me a healthy, happy smile.”
“Whitening and Oral evaluation”
“I came to Aesthetika Center for teeth whitening and cleaning and an assessment of my overall dental health and what can be done to improve my smile. I was treated like a celebrity from the moment I entered the office. The staff is friendly and attentive, the hygenist, Dr. Clarinda Valderrama was gentle and thorough. I got some great input on what can be done for the flaws in my mouth and I fully intend to do everything I can to acquire a winning smile. I am certain that Dr. Castaneda has what it takes to fix my teeth and make them beautiful. She won me over with her adept explanations, dental imaging simulation, and with the spa-like treatment I received. I’ve never been so relaxed at a dental office!”
“Perfection in Dentistry”
“I have seen Dr. Castaneda on several occasions over the past 10 years and found her to be an extremely proficient perfectionist. She won me over when she did a challenging procedure which involved the placement of a veneer on ONE of my front teeth (after a root canal). She was able to match the varying degrees of whiteness and translucency of this ONE tooth to the rest of my smile. Dr. ‘C’ also successfully replaced all of my silver fillings with porcelain. I can’t tell you how nice it is to be able to laugh without a mouth full of glaring metal.
"Her petite hands maneuver in your mouth with amazing dexterity and craftpersonship. I recently found out that she used to be a sculptress, which enhances her refined movements for building amazing smiles. She also has a knack for making patients very comfortable with her warm chair-side manner and offers various pain management accoutrements. I like her pina colada, banana flavored, etc, pre-anesthesia so you never feel the stick of a needle. Yes, her services cost a bit, but you get what you pay for and she is worth it if you want a smile for life.”
“Realistic crowns, pleasing result with dental inlay”
“I am thrilled that I found Dr. Castaneda. Her specialty is creating beautiful natural smiles; although I will continue to see her for my routine care. The temporary crown that she made for my front tooth looks better and more natural than the permanent one that another doctor had done. On another tooth, she did an inlay as opposed to a crown. I am extremely pleased with the result. None of my prior dentists had ever offered this option. Even though my treatment is not complete, I have seen her other work, and it is outstanding. I trust her recommendations and I feel comfortable when she is performing work on me. Doctor Castaneda is a trained artist and works closely with an expert ceramiscist. Her staff is professional and friendly as well.”
