"This place was amazing! From the moment you walk in till the moment I was walked up to the front, the staff continuously made sure I was doing fine. Every step of the appointment was explained to me so I knew exactly what to expect next. I was greeted with lots of smiles when I first walked in by the front desk Brandon. He gave me lots of mint goodies which I loved. Beats earphones, sunglasses, and an ipad. There was no wait time. Before I could even pick a movie on netflix I was already being brought back. The dental chair is a massage chair and it made me feel so relaxed. Catching up on my tv show and getting a massage while getting my teeth examined was so much fun. Dr. Tum did my exam, and she was quick and very knowledgeable. The assistants Carlos, Neta, Ashley, Areej were so quick and efficient with taking my xrays and whitening impressions. Lizzy the hygienist did my cleaning, and she was wonderful. She is very sweet, quick, and thorough. The office manager Jessica was fabulous right when you walked in she made me feel so important and comfortable. Jessica & Brandon the treatment coordinators was great! They were able to give me some great prices on my same day treatment! I had no choice but to stay for the same day treatment, bc the prices were unbeatable not to stay. The whole mint dentistry cypress team were amazing. They def exceeded my expectations, and I def recommend this dental office to anyone who is looking for a new dental home. Thank you Mint dentistry I can't wait to come back for my next routine visit!!! I'm glad I gave you guys a try. I left with whitening trays, sunglasses, chapstick, lipstick, and lots of oral hygiene tools...you can't beat that!"- J.N. / Google / Aug 14, 2019

Several factors will influence the alignment of your teeth: genetics, thumb sucking as a child, the loss of a tooth or teeth, or a traumatic accident to the face. Misaligned teeth can lead to other oral health problems, including a bad bite (dental malocclusion), ground-down enamel, difficulty chewing and speaking, plus toothaches and jaw pain. If a member of our MINT dentistry team sees signs or symptoms of one of these issues at your annual examination, we might suggest Invisalign®.
Invisalign® is great for teens and adults who would like to improve their smile but without the appearance and hassle of traditional metal orthodontics. While your aligners should be in at least 20 hours a day, Invisalign® can be removed so you can brush your teeth and eat, plus for playing sports and special events. More discreet than traditional braces, most people won't know that you're wearing your Invisalign® trays.
What to Expect
Your first set of Invisalign® trays will be made from the digital x-rays taken at MINT dentistry. You will return to get your first set of aligners and specific care instructions from your dentist. You will need to use your aligners at least 20 – 22 hours each day for the system to be effective, with the goal of removing them only for eating and cleaning. Over time, you should switch to your second set of aligners so they can continue to shift your bite into their proper position. You should plan to attend follow-up appointments as recommend by your dentist so we can check your progress and get more digital x-rays taken so new sets of aligners can be made. How long you will need to wear your aligners will depend on your starting bite and your specific goals. Most patients use Invisalign® for about 10 – 18 months.
Once your bite is aligned and you are done with your Invisalign® trays, it is crucial to keep your teeth in place while your gums and jaw adjust. Invisalign® Vivera® retainers are designed with the same comfortable materials as the aligner trays to help keep your teeth in place after your treatment is complete. Your retainer is custom made at the Invisalign® dental lab from digital x-rays taken once your treatment is complete. A member of the MINT dentistry team will speak with you about when to use your retainer and care instructions after it's sent back to our office. Our team will continuously monitor your teeth alignment and bite during your yearly dental examinations to ensure they remain straight.
The MINT Commitment
In many cases, at least a part of your costs for an Invisalign® treatment is paid by dental insurance. We will get more information on your specific policy coverage and then determine your personal cost. MINT dentistry accepts many different payments to cover your out-of-pocket expenses or if you aren't using insurance. At your initial consultation, MINT dentistry’s support staff can go over your estimated bill and how we can help make your Invisalign® treatment more affordable with low-interest medical financing and flexible payment plans. It's important to remember that a gorgeous smile is an invaluable asset. MINT dentistry is dedicated to helping you find an affordable way to get sexy teeth.
