I hadn't been to a dentist in about 3 years and when I came to see Dr. Nishimori my teeth weren't in the best of shape. I had a very deep cavity and I was worried it had hit the nerve but he was able to save the tooth. He is very professional and friendly. He always makes sure that you are comfortable and he is very gentle. The office is modern and beautiful. The rest of the staff is very helpful and very nice throughout x-rays, cleaning, etc. I highly recommend Dental Aesthetica and Dr. Nishimori.
I recently moved out of the city to the East Bay, but continue going to Dental Aesthetica for my dental work. I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my teeth, and I trust no one other than the dentist here. I was having sensitivity and it turns out one of my old fillings I've had since a child fell out. Dr. Nishimori was very thorough in explaining my condition and showed me pictures of the tooth with the missing filling. They were able to reduce the filling the same day, and I no longer have sensitivity. I've never had an issue with insurance or billing @ this office. We all know understanding insurance can be very confusing, but Mari does a great job answering any questions I have and clearly explains what is covered and what is out-of-pocket. It is a far commute for me, but definitely worth the quality dentistry done here.
I moved to SF recently & needed to find a new dentist. A friend recommended Dental Aesthetica & I'm so happy I found this place. Their beautiful modern office is located near my office in the financial district. I was seen on time and the assistant, Melissa, was very friendly & gentle when she took my x rays. My cleaning & exam were done by Dr. Nishimori, it went very smoothly. He recommended a night guard due to signs of grinding & it really helped me. My partner says he doesn't hear me grinding my teeth @ night and I no longer wake up with jaw soreness anymore. I would highly recommend Dental Aesthetica to anyone looking for great dental care.
I have been coming to Dental Aesthetica for the last several years, and I've had nothing but great experiences. Joanna, who works the front desk, is very friendly and does a great job scheduling me around my work. This past visit, I had a crown done by Dr. Nishimori. The procedure was done in a timely manner and I had no pain or sensitivity after. The crown looks great, and I can finally chew on both sides comfortably. I trust the advise and work.
I recently had general crowns done by Dr. Nishimori, & I am extremely satisfied with the work he did. First he was very thorough in explaining the condition of my teeth & gave me an honest opinion on the necessary dental treatment. I'm usually a nervous wreck when it comes to dental work, but Dr. Nishimori and his wonderful assistants made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire appointment. The crowns turned out amazing! The color matched perfectly with the rest of my teeth and they feel great. I would recommend Dr. Nishimori to anyone hoking for a trustworthy dentist.
I had a wonderful experience at Dental Aesthetica, and I could tell these people go above & beyond to make sure their patients get treated right. I had a bad toothache that kept me up at night & some co-workers recommended this office. They were kind enough to fit me into their busy schedule. I saw Dr. Nishimori and he was very few professional, honest and patient from the start. He did a thorough exam & gave me several options to treat my aching tooth. We decided to do a root canal, which he was able to complete that day. Throughout the appointment Dr. Nishimori was very gentle, meticulous & explained each step so I know what was going on. After the procedure, the pain was gone and I was able to sleep without my tooth waking me. I'm finally serious without taking care of my teeth and I will be returning to Dr. Nishimori. Thank You again.
