Preventative dentistry encompasses a wide variety of concepts and techniques.

From regular six-month cleanings to dental fillings and everything in between, you can rest assured we’ll take care of you and your dental health.

An orthodontist specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of jaw, face and bite irregularities (known as malocclusions). Beyond correcting crooked teeth or gaps between the teeth, orthodontic dentistry focuses on correcting the bite alignment to support the proper comfort and function of the mouth and jaw. Whether you have a crooked tooth, poor bite alignment, sleep apnea, jaw pain (TMJ) or need a mouthguard before sports season, we offer orthodontic dentistry for a variety of dental needs. Ask us about our services in six month smiles, braces, Invisalign, tooth extraction, wisdom teeth, mouthguards or give us a call to schedule a consultation for orthodontic dentistry.
At Westlake Dental Associates we’re raising the bar of modern dentistry with services that are more efficient, versatile and reliable. Do you have a problem tooth or need to replace one or more missing teeth? Our custom one-day crowns are made of beautiful, tooth-colored porcelain to look and feel just like natural teeth. You may desire a crown to seal a tooth after root canal treatment, repair a damaged, chipped or broken tooth, or to replace one or more missing teeth with a dental crown and bridge or dental implant. Using state of the art CEREC technology, we’re able to individually design and craft the ideal size, shape and color of your crown without having to wait on a dental lab. Give us a call for a consultation!
Has a sudden or chronic toothache been keeping you up at night? Tooth sensitivity or dental pain may indicate dental issues you can’t see in the bathroom mirror. Oftentimes a cavity, broken tooth or fractured tooth that is left untreated can result in an inflamed inner pulp of the tooth. In this case, root canal therapy is advised to reduce risks of tooth loss and alleviate dental pain. Thanks to advancements in dental treatment methods, root canal therapy may feel no more invasive than a simple dental filling. For patients who require root canal therapy but have dental fear or anxiety, sedation dentistry may be recommended to help provide an extra sense of calm and support throughout treatment.
A dental implant is the only form of modern tooth replacement to be carefully secured into the jawbone and behave just like a strong tooth root. Unlike bridges or dentures, dental implants can last as long as a lifetime and won’t affect adjacent teeth. Because they are fixed into place, they also won’t slip or fall out during regular activities and require little to no change in a good dental hygiene routine. After tooth loss, dental implants have the benefit of reducing or preventing rapid bone loss in the jaw and can restore a sunken or aged face shape for a more beautiful and natural looking appearance. Dental implants are so revolutionary and successful that you may forget they are not your natural teeth.
Have you or a loved one suffered from a dental injury such as a chipped tooth, dislodged crown or knocked out baby tooth? Dental accidents happen more frequently than you may think, and when they do it’s important to know that your local dentist is nearby to help. That is why we offer same day dental care and emergency dentistry to quickly alleviate dental pain and restore smiles with gentle, conservative treatment. Don’t wait on a toothache or dental pain to worsen over time. Make a phone call to your local dentist in Westlake Village for emergency dental care–it could make the difference in saving your teeth.
"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!"
