"I've been coming here for a couple years. I will NOT go anywhere else. The staff here are all so friendly, inviting, and always accommodating to your needs. On top of having great interpersonal skills, the doctor, hygienists, assistants, all have amazing work ethics and preform expertly while also taking into consideration and holding at high priority, your comfort level. And above all, they genuinely care. As for the facility itself, it's not your typical dentist office. You dont feel so much that you're sitting in a bland, emotionless doctor's office. The lobby accommodates with free tablets to use, magazines, comfortable furniture, free sunglasses to protect from the lights/splashing water, they even offer free bottled water. The 'office' where you're seated for your procedure is always clean and inviting. They provide you with headphones to listen to music and watch movies (headphones not required) and will even put on youtube if you'd rather. I definitely recommend MINT to anyone, especially those who may fear going to the dentist. MINT is definitely 100% a whole new experience that is far better than any I've had in the past."- J.H. / Google / Mar 04, 2021
"Mint is incredible! From the moment you walk in, you are warmly welcomed. They offered us water and lead us through the check in process. My 6yo and I had appointments one after the other. The entire staff was so kind, patient, and encouraging to him. They put on a movie for him while they did his dental work. He has sensory processing issues and were very flexible to find ways to help him through the process. The chairs also give a massage so that helped him feel comfortable. I was also satisfied by the overall experience. The only reason I took off one star was for the timing of our appointments. I have a feeling it was just a busy evening for the office, but we were there from 245-6 pm. And all we had done were xrays, pictures, deep cleaning and I got my permanent retainers out... which took maybe 15 minutes. I will definitely be returning! I’m super thankful for Jasmine, Alana and Olivia who all helped us as well as the lovely ladies at the front desk. The doctor was very good at explaining everything in detail and reassuring us that all will be well. Overall an incredible experience! Also, my husband had two fillings when they went with our daughter and he said it was the most pleasant filling experience he had ever had."- K.R. / Google / Mar 02, 2021
"The people that work here are just simply put great. Highly recommend this place to any one looking for a dentist."- O.S. / Google / Feb 05, 2021
Best Candidates for Dental Crowns
A crown can help in several different situations. Crowns can be used to keep a tooth (weakened by decay) from breaking or they can hold parts of a tooth together that have already cracked. Crowns can also be used to repair a tooth that is loose or extremely worn down. They can serve as support for a tooth with a cavity that is too large for a tooth-colored filling, to hold a dental bridge in place, and to protect a tooth that is misshapen or discolored. MINT dentistry crowns are made with top-quality porcelain and placed with state-of-the-art techniques to ensure a beautiful result that lasts a long time.
What to Expect
Once your treatment plan has been created, we will take impressions of your teeth that will be used to make your custom crown. If needed, a temporary restoration can be used to protect your tooth until your custom crown is ready. Once your custom crown is complete, we will contact you to schedule an appointment for placement. After settling into a massaging treatment chair, you will be offered a pair of Beats headphones and MINT sunglasses to help you feel at ease throughout your appointment. To begin, the area to be treated will be prepped with local anesthesia. More sedation options may be available if you have anxiety about the process. Once you are ready, a skilled dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and filing down the tooth to make room for the crown so it will fit snugly. The crown will be cemented onto the tooth or attached to the dental implant. After the crown is set, we will adjust the fit so it feels comfortable.
Unless you added sedation to your procedure, you should be able to leave after your crown is placed to continue your day. We will teach you the best way to care for your crown, including how to clean it and what food you need to avoid. Our team encourages patients schedule a follow-up appointment to get their bite checked following the placement of a crown to ensure their alignment is correct. Complications with your bite are difficult to avoid because local anesthesia is numbing your mouth; however, we can quickly fix it. If you notice a problem with your bite, contact our office to schedule a quick appointment. During your oral healthexam at MINT dentistry, we will assess your crown and adjust the fit as needed so it remains comfortable. We will let you know when the crown needs to be repaired or replaced, but with proper care, a crown should last for many years. If you experience any issues with your crown (for example, it falls out or feels loose), contact our office right away. Do not try to fix it or put it back in yourself since this can lead to an infection or bad fit.
The MINT Commitment
If you have dental insurance, a part of the cost of your crown may be covered. After speaking with your insurance company, our office can estimate your out-of-pocket expenses. During your consultation, we can help you determine the best options for your crown based on your goals and budget. We will also go over payment options, including the MINT discount plan, which can help make your treatment easier to afford. We are committed to helping each of our patients get sexy teeth. Our dental crowns are made with the highest quality porcelain material so they look great and last a long time.
