The California Center for Aesthetic Dentistry - the office of Dr. Nick Levi - is a state of the art facility dedicated to excellence in a wide range of services - cosmetic and general dentistry, dental surgery as well as laser skin treatments, botox and cosmetic dermal fillers.
Dr. Levi's office is San Francisco's prime hub for INVISALIGN treatment - with hundreds of patients treated it was the first recognized GP Premier Invisalign Provider office in 2005 and has kept this status since.
The CCAD was also the first office in San Francisco to utilize the use of the Waterlase hard tissue laser - tool enabling us to place fillings without the need for anesthetic or the conventional drill. Currently we use a broad array of lasers for different aspects of the diagnostics and treatment of the gum tissue or cavities. Recently we expanded our office to incorporate the use of medical lasers for skin treatments and laser hair removal under the supervision of our plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Macdonald.
Our latest achievement was becoming the first certified office in California to use the recently FDA approved Metal Free Zirconia Dental Implant. This is the first FDA aproved white non-metal implant for use in the USA.
