They say the perfect dentist doesn’t exist; they’ve never been to Gentle Care Dentistry. Dr. Luu is the best dental practitioner around. Scared of the dentist? Dr. Luu is so good you won’t even know she’s started, she once extracted my molar in two minutes flat. Want comprehensive care? Dr. Luu doesn’t just cover up cavities as they appear, she looks at the whole picture and takes proactive steps to ensure that your teeth are going to be healthy for years to come. In addition to just being the best at what she does, Dr. Luu is constantly improving. She always has a new gadget to improve my experience at her office and my overall health; she attends conferences and stays on top of advancements in her field. All in all, I can brag about Dr. Luu all day, but it comes down to this: if your teeth are important to you but you’re afraid of the dentist, stop looking and come to Gentle Care Dentistry where you will be cared for like you’re one of Dr. Luu’s kids.

After many different visits to many different doctors, and a raging fear of the dentist that was so bad we could barely get out of the car - this place is heaven. The staff is gentle, calm, funny, and willing to work with whatever fears you have. True professionals. Whether a dentist has hurt you in the past, it's been 10 years, or you can't stand the drilling - Gentle Care Dentistry will help.
They've been great about working in our budget, allowing payments, and helping keep our dental anxiety in check. I love this place.

If I can give 10 stars I would! I have had root canals before and each one was just an awful experience - 2 to 3 hour procedures and would feel the on and off pain of the drilling. This place is amazing!!! Words cannot express how happy I was to get my root canal treated here - 45 minute root canal and did not feel a thing!!! I definitely recommend this dentist.

I always dreaded smiling because my teeth were messed up. I never really went to the dentist. When I first came to this dentist I was nervous. After the work I got done I wanted to cry with happiness. I could smile again. She is not only caring and sweet but she takes her time. She did an amazing job and I'm so glad I chose this dentist.

I decided to come to this dentistry because Dr. Luu specializes in safe amalgam removals. She and her staff are very professional and kind. I never wait long and the doctors procedures is very unique, she uses a anesthetic wand that is painless and not frightening like the big painful needle you typically get when getting anesthesia in your mouth. Dr. Luu and her staff always make sure I’m comfortable and I’m happy with the service I’ve been receiving. I would recommend them to my friends and family.

Let me start off by saying they have the nicest staff and customer service of any dentistry I’ve come across. I chipped my tooth around 10pm and so I called them wanting to set up an appointment. Even though they were closed at the time by almost 4 hours they still managed to pick up the phone. Because it was an urgent repair they managed to fit me in after hours the NEXT DAY. When I went into the office they were just as nice in person as they were on the phone. They took my X-rays and fixed my tooth all in the same day for a reasonably inexpensive price. Making sure my tooth was as perfect as I wanted it to be the whole process was quick and painless. Thank you Gentle Care for making me feel comfortable.

I have WHITE teeth again...finally, thanks to Dr. Luu and her great staff recommending CORE Whitening system to me! After needing a new Dentist for some major work on my teeth, I chose Gentle Care Dentistry and have been nothing but pleased since; definitely smiling now!
De. Luu, Joanna and Ruth are fantastic and caring and always make me feel comfortable and despite the major work done, I am fine and don’t feel any pain or discomfort afterwards.
I would highly recommend Gentle Care Dentistry and Dr. Luu to anyone looking for the best dentist possible and take advantage of the CORE Whitening system too!


Dentist in the Azusa, CA area describes the benefits you can enjoy from getting dental porcelain veneers (CC 104)

Benefits You Can Enjoy From Getting Dental Veneers in Azusa CA area

When patients in the area of Azusa, CA visit their dentist and ask about cosmetic treatments to enhance their smiles, they may be introduced to the idea of placing porcelain dental veneers. These restorations, commonly thought of as personalized facings for the front teeth, are a popular choice for many reasons. You are welcome to ask about the benefits you can enjoy from getting porcelain veneers for dental enhancements by scheduling a visit at Gentle Care Dentistry and speaking with Dr. Brianne Luu about your smile’s needs.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are dental restorations that are commonly used for addressing imperfections that are present on the anterior teeth near the front of the smile. While celebrities have been using veneers for decades to get that picture-perfect smile, everyday patients can now achieve the same results without breaking the bank. These thin pieces of porcelain are created in a dental laboratory and are made to fit perfectly over the natural tooth to cover it and improve its appearance. In addition to porcelain, veneers may also be made of other materials such as composite resin. Regardless of the material used to create the veneer, the goal remains the same: change the size, color, shape, or overall appearance of a tooth near the front of the smile.

Dental veneers are commonly used for the following concerns:

  • Teeth that have become permanently stained and discolored from fillings or root canals
  • Teeth that are broken or chipped
  • Teeth that are irregularly shaped and an unusual size
  • Teeth that are spaced apart and have created gaps
  • Teeth that are imperfectly aligned and may result in a loss of self-confidence and pride

How long do dental veneers last?

Dental veneers are a long-lasting solution for most of our patients. The time they last will vary depending on the type of material that they are fabricated from. Patients who have composite resin veneers will not only benefit from a cheaper upfront cost, but they will notice that the resin may discolor over time and need to be replaced in the future. These resin veneers may last three to five years. However, for patients who want longer-lasting alternatives, they may want to choose veneers made of porcelain. Porcelain dental veneers can last up to fifteen years with proper care before they need to be replaced. Most dental insurance plans will not cover porcelain veneers, as they are often considered an elective procedure. However, our dental staff can work with patients to design a custom payment plan to make this and any other procedures more affordable for even the tightest of budgets!

What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?

There are many advantages to having veneers placed on the smile. First and foremost is the ability to increase a patient’s self-confidence and self-esteem as they can cover up imperfections on the smile that may make patients feel uncomfortable with laughing, talking, and smiling with others. Veneers can provide a flawless and attractive smile that patients will be excited to share with others! Veneers are custom-fabricated to fit the patient’s smile and to blend in with the existing teeth for seamless integration. Others often don’t even realize that patients have porcelain veneers in place. Additionally, because veneers are made just for patients, they are an appropriate fit that may require minor shaping before placing them on the natural tooth structure. These restorations do not require any special care or attention outside of traditional brushing and flossing and can address a wide range of imperfections that may impact the smile.

What are the disadvantages to dental veneers?

While dental veneers are a wonderful solution for many of our patients with a variety of benefits, there are some downfalls that patients may need to take into consideration when they are choosing a restoration for their smiles. Porcelain veneers do not change color once they have been placed, so if the rest of the smile yellows, it will stand out as a dental restoration that does not match. This also affects patients who are interested in whitening their smile with professional whitening treatments. However, composite resin bonding can change color but can do so in a way that makes them stand out as an unsightly restoration. This is why patients may choose to replace their veneers later on after treatment has initially been done.

Additionally, veneers made of porcelain are very thin and delicate. Because of this, they may be more prone to chips and cracks than other restorations such as dental fillings and dental crows. Patients who have bad habits such as clenching their teeth, chewing on ice, or biting their nails may not be good candidates for porcelain veneers because of their poor strength. However, if patients can correct these issues by either stopping them or by using a night guard to protect the teeth, veneers may still be an appropriate solution.

Last but not least, patients must understand that even though the veneer is covering the natural tooth, it is still susceptible to problems such as tooth decay and periodontal disease. Patients need to take good care of the smile with daily brushing and flossing and routine visits to the dentist every six months for a full dental cleaning and evaluation to monitor the health of the smile as a whole.
