Welcome to Ballwin Dental Care, the dental office of Dr. Kimberly Simonds, her father, Dr. Robert Schrameyer, and Dr. Dan Gennaoui where we offer comprehensive dental services to our patients in Ballwin, Missouri, and the surrounding areas. One of the services we are proud to offer is teeth whitening, and we use the EZ White® in-office system to make your smile bright in about 90 minutes, as well as at-home whitening systems for your convenience.

If your pearly whites lack the whiteness they used to have, you are not alone. Tooth discoloration is common, whether from wear and tear over time, from what you eat and what beverages you drink, medication you might be taking, or even because of your family tree.

Extrinsic Stains

Extrinsic stains are surface stains caused by factors on the outside of the tooth, which include eating or drinking tooth-staining foods such as coffee, tea, or wine, smoking or chewing tobacco, and poor oral hygiene habits.

Intrinsic Stains

Intrinsic stains stem from whatever is going on inside the tooth. Tooth decay, taking certain medications such as tetracycline, over fluoridation (known as fluorosis), a chipped or broken tooth which has darkened from deadened nerves, or having a dark amalgam filling in the tooth can all cause tooth staining.

No matter what the cause of your tooth staining, we can help! Our skilled dentists, Drs. Simonds, Gennaoui, and Schrameyer are pleased to offer the EZ White® in-office system as well as at-home whitening systems for our patients in Ballwin, Missouri. Tooth whitening is one of the easiest, fastest and simplest changes you can make to revitalize your smile. So if you would like to find out how our teeth whitening treatments can brighten your smile, or to schedule a visit with one of our dentists please give us a call at 636.552.9647 today!
