I need a recommendation for an expert cosmetic dentist for porcelain veneer in
Berkeley. Expert, experienced and ideally, affordable...
Many thanks for any advice
I'm not sure what counts as affordable to you, but Dr.
Brian Assael in Berkeley is an excellent cosmetic
dentist. He gave me four porcelin veneers on my top front
center teeth, and they are beautiful! He is meticulous
and will sit and talk details of teeth shape, color, size
etc. endlessly with you if you want. He enjoys cosmetic
dentistry and it shows. He's very good at it, and has a
big book of photos to prove it. Check him ou:

though...don't go by that.)
has been my dentist for over 20 years, and is both an affordable and
expert cosmetic dentist. Although I do not have veneers, I have seen the results
of his work with other patients, and it is both meticulous and natural-looking.
Dr. Sidi has done bonding on the tops of a couple of my teeth, as I have
problems with wearing; you would never know by looking at them. I still
commute to SF to see him and would not think of going to anyone else. Dr.
Sidi's offices are located in the 450 Sutter building--an easy ride on BART to the
Powell Street station with a nice 10-minute walk. Also, you won't meet a warmer
or more interesting fellow; he's just a lovely person and his staff is exceptional.
Can someone recommend a good dentist in the East Bay that does
good veneers at a reasonable price. I have a chip in my front
tooth and fillings don't stay. My dentist quoted me something
like $1200 per veneer. I don't know what reasonable is, but he
seems a bit like a wheeler dealer and I am not comfortable just
going for it. Advice would be much appreciated.
I am looking for a great cosmetic dentist. Someone who does
porcelain veneers and won't make me look like I've just aquired
a set of false teeth. I don't smile much as I don't like my
teeth; they are discolored from antibiotic use as a child;
misshapen with an overbite, and I have too few apparently,
which causes other problems. In short, my teeth have lots of
cosmetic failings! I saw a DDS in SF by the name of Castaneda
who quoted me 43K for upper and lower teeth. It seems awfully
high to me, but i have nothing to compare it to. In any case,
it is out of my reach entirely. Does anyone have a
recommendation for someone competent, well regarded, and
artistic? I am willing to travel, even out of the country as
I've heard you can do this stuff for less elsewhere. However,
my first priority is to get the best job done. Thank you.
