At MINT dentistry, we offer dental crowns to treat large cavities, protect weak teeth, restore cracked teeth, and cover discolored teeth. Our team of board-certified dental professionals uses high-grade porcelain crowns that look natural and improve your overall smile. MINT dentistry patients have the most gorgeous smiles. To get your own sexy MINT smile, schedule a consultation at MINT dentistry and learn more about how a dental crown can improve the overall health and appearance of your smile.
Dental Crowns Reviews
"The doctors are AMAZING at the East Houston location!! Dr. Jordan is the best there is with wisdom teeth extractions and Dr. Jacocks is a true gem! She hands down does the best crowns and composites. You're cheating yourself if you don't see either one of them for your dental needs."- R.B. / Google / Feb 02, 2018
"My previous dentist of 15 years had to abruptly close her business, so I needed to find a new one. My wife had seen the founder on tv, so I went online to get more information. I was impressed by what I found and decided to make an appointment via a phone call rather than online as I had some questions.From the moment I walked in I felt very comfortable.I was greeted in an very friendly manner and since I had filled out my new client papers online all I had to do was show my drivers license and had a seat. In a few minutes I was greeted by Viola, who took all my necessary x-rays. She was very pleasant and answered all my questions with complete professionalism. Dr. Edson came in and went over the x-rays and informed of what needed to be done—two cavities that I knew I had from my previous dentist. I also found out I need two crowns and the Dr explained exactly why they were needed as opposed to doing a filling and I understood her reasoning and readily agreed.My teeth were then cleaned by Alysa, who was equally as pleasant and professional. After she was done, I met with Ebony to go over the treatment plan and costs and once again was highly impressed.I’m to return on Monday for my fillings and then schedule the remainder of my needed treatments.I am self pay so I cannot comment on insurance usage. Based on my initial experience at Mint, I can unreservedly recommend their services based on every aspect of my interactions with all involved."- D.M. / Google / Feb 28, 2019
"I’m a new patient at Mint and the staff was very professional and kind. They were thorough and I didn’t feel rushed. Very genuine vibe and overall a great experience. I’ll update this review after having the first round of cavities, crowns etc done. Today was just Teeth cleaning, x-rays and exams. Thanks y’all !"- L.D. / Google / Jan 09, 2019

"Where do I begin.?!? Bailey at the front desk, beautiful welcoming personality. Mary got my new insurance together and was nice and accommodating. Tarhea was a beautiful spirit she took my X-rays. Jenelle got my teeth nice and clean and she was fast. To top it off the “Dynamic Duo” Dr. Tum and Quinesha.....they spent so much time with me I feel like we are legit family. I got two crowns and a filing ?? they were patient and made sure I was comfortable. I owe them lunch or dinner. All and All I was there from 1pm to 6pm. Glad I got everything done with a beautiful encouraging group of women????"- P.L. / Google / Aug 27, 2018
Dental crowns may be needed in a variety of situations. They 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 fix a tooth that is loose or extremely worn down. They can serve as a covering and support for a tooth with a large cavity that cannot support a normal filling, to hold a dental bridge in place, and to cover misshapen or discolored teeth. MINT dentistry crowns are made of top-quality porcelain and are secured with state-of-the-art techniques and advanced technology to ensure a beautiful result.
What to Expect
During your consultation, one of MINT’s dental professionals will take impressions of your teeth so your crown can be custom made. If needed, a temporary crown can be placed over your tooth while your custom crown is in production. Once your crown is ready, our support staff will schedule an appointment for placement. After settling into one of our luxurious treatment chairs, you will be offered a pair of Beats headphones and MINT sunglasses to help you feel at ease during your procedure. Next, the area to be treated will be numbed with a local anesthetic. Other sedation options may be available to help you feel more comfortable during the procedure if you have any fears or anxieties. Once you are ready, a skilled dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any areas of decay, then 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 of the crown, so your bite is correct.
If only local anesthesia is used, you should be able to leave once your crown is placed, to continue your daily activities. A member of our team will go over the best way to care for your new crown, including foods to avoid and the best way to keep it clean. During your exams at MINT dentistry, a skilled dental professional 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 replaced, but with proper care, a crown should last for many years. If you experience any problems with your crown (for example, it becomes loose or falls out), contact our office for help. Do not try to fix it or put it back in yourself since this can lead to a bad fit or infection. We highly recommend all patients come back for a bite adjustment after getting a crown to ensure the bite is perfect. Bite complications are almost unavoidable because the patient’s mouth is numb but are easily fixed. Just call MINT.

We will also go over payment options, including the MINT discount plan for people without PPO dental as well medical financing to make your treatment more affordable.
