Your Best Dental Experience Here
Since identifying and filling cavities are two of the most important services we provide at West Hills Smiles, we use Diagnodent® laser technology. Diagnodent precisely detects tooth decay in its early stages, many times before it can be recognized by other means. Fillings for cavities that are caught sooner can often be smaller, which allows us to use minimally invasive filling techniques and preserve more of your natural tooth. Additionally, the low intensity Diagnodent laser enables us to monitor areas of concern without repeated x-rays.
Like digital x-rays, digital photographs taken with our intraoral cameras are a useful diagnostic and patient education tool. Intraoral cameras show you what we see during your exam and help us guide you through your diagnosis and treatment options. Intraoral cameras also allow us to visualize more and diagnose issues we might not have been able to see without the up-close view that they give us.
Digital x-rays are a fast and comfortable tool we use to assess your dental needs. With no chemical processing, no sharp pieces of x-ray film and significantly less radiation than conventional x-rays, digital x-rays are a smart choice for your smile and the environment. X-rays are commonly used in dental exams of patients of all ages, because many problems with the teeth and surrounding tissues cannot be seen by the naked eye.
Laser Assisted Cavity Detection
Unfortunately, cavities often go undetected until patients experience discomfort or severe dental damage. Laser-assisted cavity detection is a quick, accurate, and non-invasive way to reveal decay. The laser device will measure fluorescence inside your tooth. Areas of decay will reveal higher levels of fluorescence. The device can reveal cavities in the earliest stages, so we can treat decay before it causes discomfort and harms your full tooth. Additionally, the low intensity Diagnodent laser enables us to monitor areas of concern through cavity detection without repeated x-rays.
THE OVERALL QUALITY OF YOUR DENTAL EXPERIENCE IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US.
What Our Patients Think
This is THE place to go for your dental needs. You walk in and see their beautiful lobby that has a really big and soothing aquarium. They offer you snacks and drinks and the front desk girls always have a smile on their faces. The rooms are gorgeous! They even have those little cameras that take pictures of your teeth so you can see them (that was helpful because I had a crack on my tooth that I didn’t think it was a big deal until I saw it with the camera, ew!). The doctors are amazing. They didn’t try to sell me any treatment, but told me that their job was to educate me about oral health and my options, so I didn’t feel any pressure to proceed with anything I wasn’t comfortable with. I will come here for the rest of my life!
Just had work done by Dr. Mike Salekian today and was so impressed with how smoothly everything went!!!! I am usually terrified of the dentist (especially the numbing shots) but Dr. Mike was so gentle I honestly didn’t even feel him numbing me. He was very thorough at explaining everything so I felt comfortable the entire time. He is a very compassionate guy and truly cares about his patients. The assistant, Chris, is amazing too!! I highly recommend going to see them for any of your dental needs! You’ll be happy that you did! The front office is very accommodating when it comes to utilizing your insurance and making sure things are good on the financial side.
Recently, I was told I would be seeing a new dentist, Dr. Mike,by the excellent staff at West Hills Smile. After the first visit, I found Dr. Mike incredibly kind and very knowledgeable. We proceed with the treatment plan, and Dr. Mike continuously checked in while he was doing the procedure. Everything went fine, and it felt quick and painless. With the excellent care I received by Dr. Mike and continued support of the already great staff, I recommend this office. In my experience the staff is just as caring and willing to work with you as well. They go above and beyond, and really want to hear from you before a plan is in place, during your visit, and afterward if anything should pop up.
