One of the many things that distinguishes MINT dentistry from other practices is that we are the first in the United States to offer completely free teeth whitening for patients using PPO dental insurance. While it may seem too good to be true, we do mean free. For patients with PPO dental insurance, our practice will make you complimentary custom dental trays and give you professional-strength whitening gel. If worn daily for several hours, it can brighten your smile as much as seven levels in less than one week. To keep up your whiter smile, our team will send you home with whitening gel refills after each visit and make you new dental trays when the old ones are lost or worn out.
Everyone is encouraged by the American Dental Association (ADA) to receive an in-depth cleaning every six months. A dental cleaning helps to reduce the formation of cavities because plaque that has built up on the enamel, which is the main cause of decay, is eliminated. A professional cleaning also removes stains and tartar on your teeth that make your smile appear dull and yellow. To improve the look of your teeth, keep your breath fresh, and stay proactive with your dental health, make an appointment for a dental cleaning for everyone in your family at MINT dentistry in Houston, TX.
What to Expect
Your dental cleaning appointment starts once you have gotten comfortable in a plush treatment chair with built-in massage features. We'll shield your eyes with a pair of stylish MINT sunglasses, then a member of our team will start by addressing the tartar and plaque that have accumulated on your enamel. Cutting-edge dental equipment and modern techniques are used to eliminate buildup without damaging your enamel or causing you distress. To start, an ultrasonic tool works away larger areas of tartar and plaque by softening them with a lubricating mist, then removing them with gentle vibrations. Next, a detailing tool like a scaler or curette will be needed to clean away the remaining tartar and plaque. Every tooth will be treated for ideal cleanliness. As soon as all of your teeth are clean, your enamel can be carefully polished to strengthen your teeth and remove stains. If requested or recommended, a professional fluoride treatment may be done following the cleaning process.
Throughout your whole dental cleaning, our team will ensure you are relaxed and comfortable. From massaging treatment chairs to Beats headphones and state-of-the-art equipment, visits to MINT dentistry are such a luxurious time you'll probably forget we are a dental practice! Our boutique practice was thoughtfully designed with our patients' wants in mind, creating a modern, upscale feeling for your best experience during every appointment to MINT dentistry.
A professional cleaning is recommended two times a year. Throughout your visit, we will help make sure you have a better home dental care routine by showing you the proper technique for brushing and flossing or suggesting products that can address your needs. A team member will also explain the instructions on how to get the best results from your home whitening gel and custom mouth trays, so your teeth will be gorgeous and fabulous. Another visit might be needed if a procedure is required for a pressing issue. If there are no problems, we suggest that you schedule cleanings every six months.
