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 Azusa, CA offers options for orthodontic care

Orthodontic model and dentist tool

At Gentle Care Dentistry, patients in the community of Azusa, CA interested in orthodontic options for their smiles can visit a dentist offering a variety of solutions to choose from. Dr. Brianne Luu is committed to providing not only traditional orthodontics, but also clear aligner therapy.

Understanding the purpose of orthodontia

Dr. Brianne Luu finds that some patients are unhappy with the alignment of their smiles. They may have teeth near the front of the mouth that are misaligned, resulting in gaps, overcrowding, or other concerns. Additionally, patients who have poor bite alignment may also be dealing with discomfort. Poor alignment of the smile is not just a cosmetic issue but can also impact the function and health of the smile. Teeth that do not line up properly can cause wear and tear on the enamel of the teeth, resulting in damaged restorations or weaker, thinner enamel. To avoid this, patients are urged to consider the benefits of orthodontic treatment that can enhance the appearance of the smile while ensuring the bite is aligned properly for the best functionality.

Types of orthodontia

Patients are excited to learn that they have options to choose from when it comes to orthodontic treatment. Below are the two types of orthodontic treatment available from Dr. Brianne Luu of Gentle Care Dentistry:

  • Traditional orthodontics – the most common way of addressing misalignment is with the use of traditional orthodontics. This treatment requires the use of brackets that are glued to the teeth and connected with wires. The wires help in repositioning the teeth over time, ensuring that the bite alignment is proper, and imperfections of the smile are addressed. Traditional orthodontics can be used for children, teenagers, and adults, and can help patients who have mild to severe misalignment of the smile. To achieve results, patients may need to have their braces for months or years, depending on the condition of their smile when they begin treatments.

  • Clear aligner therapy – some patients are uneasy about the idea of treating their smile with brackets and wires and want to consider an alternative method to achieve their results. Dr. Brianne Luu is one of the proud providers of clear aligner therapy, another way for patients to get the smile of their dreams in a more discreet manner. Clear aligner therapy is a highly desirable option for our patients because it achieves their dream smile without having to wear obvious appliances. Using clear plastic aligner trays, the teeth are gradually moving to more attractive positions with proper patient compliance. This method of treatment is best for patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth and does require patients to wear their trays for at least 20 hours a day to see the results they expect.

Which treatment is right for me?

To determine which form of orthodontia is appropriate for a specific patient, we start with an evaluation. This evaluation is included with a patient’s consultation appointment, during which they discuss the concerns they have with their smiles and the methods available for improving them.Some patients also take into consideration the cost of treatment and the time in which they will achieve their results to make an educated decision regarding the orthodontic treatment they choose.

How does clear aligner therapy work?

Most patients understand the process of traditional orthodontics but are intrigued at the idea of using a clear tray to reposition the teeth. This treatment is highly desirable due to being a discreet option. The process starts with an evaluation, to determine if patients are a candidate, and then digital impressions, which are sent to specialized computer software and transferred electronically to a laboratory. The laboratory creates a digital version of the perfect smile alignment, and then creates a series of trays for each individual. The number of trays in the series will vary depending on the severity of the misalignment. More severe misalignment will require more trays, while mild misalignment will require fewer trays. The trays are sent to the dentist and the patient comes in for their educational appointment. Patients learn how to care for the trays and how to use them. The trays are used in a specific order, with each tray being worn over the dental arch day and night. The trays can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, but should be worn at all other times. They are difficult to discern from the natural smile, making them discreet, yet effective. Each tray is worn for two weeks before progressing to the next one, and by the end of the treatment, patients will have the smile they’ve always dreamed of! Patients can use the final tray as a retainer to wear at night to maintain the results, or they may ask about a metal and acrylic retainer instead. Retainers are best to ensure maintenance of the new smile, and to keep teeth from shifting out of place over time. Clear aligner therapy is highly desirable and can provide patients with a simple way of achieving a new smile without conventional metal brackets and wires.
