Professional Teeth Whitening with Opalescence Boost
Even the most carefully treated white teeth can fade over time or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or aging. The Opalescence Boost system utilizes a powerful teeth-whitening gel to brighten your smile by several shades in a short amount of time. We also offer the option of using custom Take Home Trays for your whitening treatments. Depending on your needs and preferences, our dental team will help you choose whether to receive this treatment in our office or apply it yourself in the comfort and convenience of your own home with a teeth-whitening kit.
Invisalign and Invisalign Teen
Big Bend Dental Care is proud to be your Invisalign provider in Ballwin, Missouri. Invisalign is an innovative alternative to traditional metal braces for correcting dental misalignment or spacing problems. Your teeth are gradually shifted into their optimal position by a series of custom-made clear aligners that are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and easily removed to accommodate activities such as eating or sports. Working adults can maintain a professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious while Invisalign Teen is a program specially designed to complement your adolescent patient’s lifestyle.
It is quite normal to feel anxious about visiting the dentist, but you can relax as the gentle dental professionals here at Big Bend Dental Care assess your particular needs and take the time to discuss your best dental care options. You can count on our experience and expertise to provide care that is as pain-free as possible even if you have particularly sensitive teeth. Our goal is to relieve tooth pain, not cause it!
TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. If you have symptoms like pain or a clicking sound, you will be happy to know that these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. Early detection and treatment are important because some types of TMJ problems can lead to a misaligned bite, pain, clicking or grating noises when you open your mouth, or even more serious conditions.
Our Oral Surgeon is available to provide extractions and the removal of wisdom teeth. These procedures require only local anesthesia and are performed here at our dental clinic.
Are you experiencing a toothache? Have you chipped or broken a tooth? Do you need a professional dental examination to find the cause of your pain? At Big Bend Dental Care we offer a variety of restorative procedures from root canals to taking care of cracked teeth. These services do more than just improve the appearance of your smile. Our goal is to provide pain relief, restore function, and ensure future oral health.
Porcelain and Composite Resin Veneers / Lumineers
If you are unhappy with chipped, slightly crooked, misshapen, or discolored teeth, then veneers may be right for you. Dental veneers are an ideal alternative to minor orthodontic treatment and are permanently bonded to provide you with a beautiful smile for many years to come.
Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers are ultra-thin and require no grinding down of the original tooth, therefore the process is completely painless and reversible.
At Big Bend Dental Care, we apply a custom, natural-looking dental crown (or "cap") in cases where decay or trauma has done too much damage to completely restore the original tooth. Crowns are an excellent alternative to extraction that offer long-term durability, protection from decay or cracking, and an improved, natural appearance.
