Our High-Quality Dental Services

When you visit our La Canada Flintridge dental office for the first time, we'll begin by conducting an extensive oral exam. By looking at the condition of your smile, we can determine if it's being affected by dental complications like cavities and weakened jawbones. From there, we'll create your personalized treatment plan. Our team is more than happy to answer any questions you may have about treatments and procedures, including what materials we use.

Our comprehensive dental services include, but are not limited to:

Leveraging State-of-the-Art Technology

La Canada Flintridge dental officeYour La Canada Flintridge dentist strives to improve the efficiency of our services and your overall comfort during visits. Luckily, cutting-edge technology helps us achieve both goals. Some of the technology our office uses includes:

  • Intraoral Cameras: This piece of technology is designed to capture and display in-depth images of your smile. Our dentist can use an intraoral camera to closely examine your teeth and gums in a way that traditional x-rays cannot. We can also show you the images we see in real-time.
  • CEREC Technology: Using a specially designed CEREC machine, we can craft durable and beautiful crowns in one office visit. This reduces the time you'd have to wait for your crown while eliminating the need for a temporary crown altogether. Additionally, we can make any necessary adjustments in our office for a secure and comfortable fit.

Emphasizing Education

A hallmark of our dental practice is how highly we value education. From the moment you step through our doors, we'll take the time to show you to properly care for your smile at home. Whether we're showing you how to floss hard-to-reach areas or providing you with helpful dietary tips, our goal is to prevent serious dental complications. By caring for your smile at home and regularly visiting our office, you can reduce your chances of developing uncomfortable and costly dental problems.
