Do I Have To Come In Every Six Months?
Cavities, toothaches and even bad breath and gum disease are common culprits affecting oral health today. Although you may not see or feel the effects of tooth decay right away, a dentist has the unique skills and tools to save you the hassle of finding out the hard way. By practicing preventive care (such as with dental sealants, fillings and gentle cleanings) your dentist can reduce the chances that you may need complex or expensive dental care down the road. Timely checkups, paired with regular brushing and flossing, is a recipe for positive oral health.
What Is CareCredit?
For patients without dental insurance, CareCredit can be a convenient and versatile option. Under CareCredit, patients can make small payments over time, rather than all at once. CareCredit has no up-front costs, no pre-payment penalties and no annual fees. It also offers no-interest financing if paid within 12 months (additional plans may be available). Your CareCredit card can be used again and again for additional treatment for yourself or your family in any CareCredit practice, and members can sign up for it online.
Do I Need A Dental X-Ray?
Dental X-rays are an important part of the diagnostic process at the dentist and should be used only when necessary. At Westlake Dental Associates, our team uses digital dentistry and 3D Cone Beam imaging to create highly comprehensive virtual roadmaps of the mouth, bone, joints, gums and teeth, with up to 90% less exposure to radiation than traditional dental film. These images reveal changes in dental health in cutting edge detail, offering dentists the ability to provide the best forms of treatments, treatment planning and advice.
What Is A Cosmetic Dentist?
Cosmetic dentistry involves achieving more than just a beautiful smile. At Westlake Dental Associates, cosmetic dentistry includes services such as porcelain veneers, same-day CEREC crowns, contouring and bonding, teeth whitening, orthodontic dentistry with Invisalign and more. Smile makeovers have a dramatic effect on a patient’s sense of confidence and self-esteem, but an improved smile may also feel more comfortable and easy to care for and offer better functionality and overall health. Thinking of improving your smile? Contact our office to set up a consultation for cosmetic dentistry in Westlake Village.
"Our family has been going to Westlake Dental for over 30 years, and the kindness and professionalism has never changed. Everyone there is genuine and great! Thank you all for taking care of us!"
"I’m really happy here. I’ve been going here for about 3 years and was referred by a friend. First dentist I’ve found in a long time that I feel really cares about my teeth. My cleanings are timely and lots of attention to detail. I recently also got a new retainer and the mold was a perfect fit. Everyone is so pleasant and I’m very happy I’ve found a dentist I can trust."
"Excellent service. Friendly and kind, especially Dr. Lundy. My daughter was very frightened about getting her tooth pulled and he calmed her worries and had it out before she knew what was going on. The hygienist was excellent as well- for both myself and my daughter. Her kind smile and great stories pass the time quickly. Thank you, June and Dr. Lundy!"
"Let’s face it, going to the dentist isn’t something most of us look forward to but I have to say, I really don’t dread it anymore. Kathy is always on time and does a great job cleaning my teeth and I feel like I’ve just had a great visit with a good friend when I leave."
"I've been a patient here for over 15 years and actually enjoy going to this office for care and treatment. Very professional, caring, friendly and helpful. Feels like a family and they seem to enjoy working there. Technically adept both in the front office and with the latest in dental care and treatment (crowns while you wait!)."
"I've been happily using Westlake Dental Associates for several years. The staff is very friendly and I am always greeted by name and a smile. Drs. Wuesthoff and Lundy provide first class service and are quick to respond on those occasional after hours emergency calls. They use the latest high-tech dentistry equipment and techniques. They are truly the best!"
"I came to Dr. Lundy based on a friend's recommendation. I had not seen a dentist in over ten years. I found the whole experience to be amazing. I was initially greeted in a comfortable setting where Dr. Lundy got to know me and my concerns and/or fears. He was very reassuring. The whole process of getting x-rays, to a cleaning, and then having a cavity filled was great. I was never in any pain or even uncomfortable and he explained every step as he was going through the procedures. I will definitely be back in less than ten years!"
"This was my first visit to Westlake Dental Associates and it was such a friendly and welcoming environment that I felt at ease right away. My hygienist, Cathy, was patient and careful and Dr. Lundy was very thorough and took time to talk to me and answer my questions. It was a great overall experience. If you are at all dissatisfied with your current dental facility, I highly recommend giving Dr. Lundy and his office a try!"
