About Dental Crowns
When a tooth is worn down or damaged, it can be strengthened and protected by a custom crown. Sometimes called a cap, dental crowns are made custom to fit snugly over the needed tooth while matching the color of your natural teeth for a seamless look. MINT dentistry offers custom crowns to protect a weak tooth, treat a large cavity, cover discoloration, and restore a cracked tooth. We use high-quality porcelain crowns to keep your smile looking natural. We love that our patients have the sexiest teeth in Pasadena, TX. Contact us to schedule an appointment at our office to find out more about how a custom crown can help you get sexy teeth.
"My experience at mint dental in Pasadena was the best experience at a dentist office of my 57 years Dr.j.phan was very knowledgeable and professional. His assistant as well my blood pressure was high he taught me how to breath. To bring it down using ti chi techniques and meditation the whole prosecutor was painless I highly recommend this dentist to one and all my only regret is all I can rate him is 5 stars the office alone rates 5 the entire staff also rates5 and the whole music sunglass gift deal really is an extra perk .not to mention I would hang out there just for fun."- L.R. / Google / Nov 30, 2023

"I don't usually provide reviews on Google but I think this is worth mentioning. I originally saw a different dentist at the Pasadena location earlier this year. When my procedure was scheduled, it was with a different provider which made me nervous. Dr. Je and the staff at this location took extra precaution making sure I was comfortable moving forward with the procedure. Dr. Je showed patience and understanding ensuring I was informed during the entire procedure relieving my anxiety."- D.B. / Google / Jul 25, 2023

Best Candidates for Dental Crowns
A crown can help in several different cases. Crowns may be needed to prevent a tooth from breaking when it is weakened by decay or to hold together a cracked tooth. Dental crowns may also be needed to repair a tooth that is worn down or loose. Crowns can also serve as support when a dental cavity has become too big for a tooth-colored filling, as part of a dental bridge, and to protect a tooth that is misshapen or discolored. Our crowns are custom made with high-quality materials and placed using advanced technology to make sure you have a beautiful result that lasts a long time.
What to Expect
Once your treatment plan has been created, we will get digital x-rays and impressions of your mouth that will be used to make your custom crown. A temporary restoration will be used to protect your tooth until your custom crown is ready. When your custom crown is complete, we will contact you to make another appointment. After relaxing in a massaging treatment chair, you'll be given a pair of stylish MINT sunglasses and Beats headphones to help keep you comfortable throughout your appointment. To begin, the treatment area will be prepped with local anesthesia. More sedation methods are available if you have anxiety about the process. When you're comfortable, your dentist will prep your teeth by eliminating any decay and, if needed, filing down the tooth. Then, the restoration will be attached to the implanted post or cemented to your natural tooth. Once your crown is set in place, your dentist may adjust the fit so it feels comfortable.
Unless you added sedation to your procedure, you will be able to leave our office after your restoration is set to resume your day. We will teach you how to care for your custom 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 make sure their alignment is correct. Complications with your bite are difficult to avoid since 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 our office, we will check your restoration and make sure it feels comfortable. Your dentist will talk to you when your crown should be repaired or replaced; however, with good care, a restoration can last for a long time. If you have any issues with your crown (e.g., it falls out or feels loose), contact us right away. Don't attempt to put it back in or repair it on your own because this may cause an infection or bad fit.
The MINT Commitment
If you have dental insurance, a part of your costs might be paid for. Once we have contacted your insurance, we can calculate your remaining bill. In your consultation, we will help you select the best options for your crown based on your goals and budget. Your dentist will also discuss the payment methods we accept, including the MINT discount plan, which can help make your treatment easier to afford. We are dedicated to giving all our patients sexy teeth. Our custom crowns are crafted from high-quality materials so they look great and last a long time.
