We believe that a healthy mouth sets the tone for a healthy body, which is why at Chi Family Dental, we emphasize the importance of regular dental check-ups and cleanings. Beyond what regular brushing and flossing can accomplish, we remove any built-up plaque and strengthen your teeth's defense against decay, followed by a thorough oral examination. We also strive to include your input during the process, so we can address any specific concerns you may have.
We want our youngest patients to feel safe and respected during their visit to our office. We perform gentle cleanings and make sure that your child's teeth are forming and emerging correctly, and can recommend orthodontic treatments when necessary. Furthermore, we keep your child informed of what to expect through each step of his or her visit, to alleviate the anxiety sometimes associated with seeing a dentist.
While regular check-ups and treatment are important for your oral health, the best advice we can give is to practice good oral hygiene every day, wherever you are. Let us show you how. Through honest and open discussion with your Missouri City dentist, we will help you come up with an oral hygiene routine that fits your schedule, with tips that range from which kind of toothpaste you should use to how to properly and thoroughly floss.
One of the most important tools a dentist has are dental x-rays. These allow for the early diagnosis of potential threats to your oral health, stopping small problems before they become big conditions. Our state-of-the-art imaging technology allow us to take the highest quality photos possible, revealing the smallest traces of decay, bone loss, or problems inside or around the tooth, all to ensure you receive the most comprehensive dental treatment you need.
At Chi Family Dental, we understand that the aesthetic appearance of your mouth can be affected by the discoloration that silver fillings bring. That's why we provide porcelain white fillings that match the natural white color of your teeth. The filling will be indistinguishable from your natural, healthy teeth, so only your dentist will know that you have had a cavity.
A dental sealant is a thin film that is placed over teeth to shield them from debris and decay. They are an inexpensive way to protect against cavities, since they cover hard-to-brush groves in the teeth where food pieces or bacteria would otherwise get trapped. They can be applied in a single visit, and provide protection for several years, saving your smile from tooth-eating bacteria and costly fillings.
If you are self-conscious about the color of your smile, or if you need to brighten your teeth for a special occasion, we can help! Our teeth whitening procedures are both fast and effective, and can redeem your smile from years of stains. Our dentists are trained professionals with years of experience in teeth whitening, so you can be sure that your experience will not only be safe, but will provide the highest quality results in Missouri City.
If you have one or more missing teeth, our durable dental bridges are a great choice to fill the gap in your bite. A bridge consists of a series of crowns placed over natural teeth, connected by a replacement tooth placed over the space left by a lost tooth. Beyond simply placing the bridge, we will show you the proper method for cleaning and maintaining your new teeth, so they will last for many years to come.
Dental crowns are the ideal way to restore the natural appearance of a broken or damaged tooth. We mold and model every crown specifically to fit your tooth, then skillfully apply it n our office for a long-lasting, beautiful smile. All done under pain-free sedation techniques, Chi Family Dental is the name to trust for the highest quality dental crowns in Missouri City, TX.
Veneers recreate the natural look of teeth without entirely reshaping the tooth for a crown. Comparable in appearance to healthy teeth and as strong as natural tooth enamel, they are great for changing a tooth's shape, size, color, or position in the mouth. If you would like to make an alteration to the appearance of your teeth, ask our dentists if veneers are the right choice for you.
We are Missouri City's provider of Invisalign® clear braces! Invisalign® is a new kind of orthodontic treatment comprised of a series of clear plastic aligners designed specifically to match your teeth. There are no wires or metal brackets like with traditional braces, and the aligners can be removed for eating and regular brushing. Over time, your teeth will shift and change their position in your mouth, transforming crooked or unevenly spaced teeth into the smile you've always dreamed of.
When you have missing teeth, it affects so much more than your smile. Your facial muscles sag, your speech is impaired, and your ability to bite and chew are impaired. Dentures, when professionally fitted and properly maintained, can restore your smile to former glory. Call today to set your appointment!
Many people avoid receiving dental treatment out of fear, but skipping your regular appointments can lead to even worse problems later on. For your comfort, we offer a range of oral and IV sedation options to help make your treatment a little more bearable. When you book your appointment with Chi Family Dental, be sure to ask which sedation choice is right for you and for the treatment you will receive.
At Chi Family Dental, we value the comfort of each of our patients while they are in our care. That's why we offer the administration of laughing gas during any of our procedures. Laughing gas is ideal for helping our patients relax in the dentist's chair. It blocks pain and relieves stress, and wears off within five minutes after your treatment is over, so you will not need someone else to drive you home.
If you are missing teeth, but your jawbone is otherwise strong and healthy, you may be a great candidate for long-lasting, natural looking dental implants. Implants replace a missing tooth and restore the look and functionality of your mouth. They look and feel just like your normal, living teeth, so you can smile brightly and feel confident in your appearance once again.
If you have multiple missing teeth in a row, implant dentures could be your ticket to a new and improved smile. Unlike traditional dentures, implant dentures are surgically embedded into the jaw, and with proper care and oral hygiene, they can last up to the longevity of your natural teeth. Call Dr. Mba and Chi Family Dental today to see if implant dentures are right for you.

When a tooth has decayed too far to be saved, or if its placement poses a risk for your other healthy teeth, it is sometimes better for the tooth to be entirely removed. At Chi Family Dental, we offer the safest tooth extractions in Missouri City, TX and the surrounding areas. We use the highest quality, surgical-grade tools and technology. Most of all, our caring staff are committed to making you feel safe and as comfortable as possible during the procedure.
For many patients, the idea of having a root canal treatment is a scary thought. They would rather endure the pain of an infected tooth or the permanent effects of an extraction than face a dreaded root canal. We strive to provide a different experience here at Chi Family Dental, by making the procedure as fast and comfortable as we can, and by keeping you informed through every step. When we are finished, your tooth will be restored to its fullest function to last for many years to come.
Gingivitis and periodontitis affect millions of Americans, but so few recognize the lasting impact that gum disease can have on your entire body. If you experience chronic toothaches and jaw aches, suffer from swollen, receding, or bleeding gums, or have a persistent unpleasant breath that you can't quite get rid of, it is important for you to talk to a dentist to determine whether you have periodontal disease, and how you can stop or reverse its effects.

With CEREC, there's usually no need for a temporary and return visit. Everything is done in one appointment, in about an hour – leaving more time for whatever is important to you.
