Dental Cleanings Reviews
"I’ve been going here for years, and the care has not changed once. It’s been great every single time. I don’t have any issues with my teeth, so I’m usually in and out with my cleaning. Even waiting to be called back has never been very long, but it’s gotten even faster over the years. Everyone is very friendly, both on the phone and in person. It is always very clean, and they require masks and temperature checks for Covid. I’ve never had them tell me I need anything but my cleaning, and having my wisdom teeth out. Even with my wisdom teeth, I’ve never felt pressured to schedule, just advised it’s recommended and given a breakdown of the costs. My insurance covers most of the cleanings, and the most I’ve ever paid for a visit is $30. My mom also comes here and loves the care and low price. They do occasionally ask her if she wants Lumineers, but she’s never been pressed about it. Overall great place!"- J.B. / Yelp / Apr 09, 2021
"Everyone is so nice and helpful here! My husband got his veneers done here about 2 years ago and we are so happy with them! We both come every six months for routine cleanings and my hygienist Sonia is always so cheerful and positive. It’s also nice to see the employees all working together as a team, so even when it’s busy they are very efficient. I was 10 minutes late to my appointment due to unforeseen traffic, I figured I would have to wait a while but they still got me in and out quickly! 5 stars all around!"- K.M. / Google / Jul 02, 2022

Who Should Have a Dental Cleaning?
Everyone needs to have their teeth cleaned. Even dentists have their teeth professionally cleaned. Since everyone has plaque and tartar on their teeth, the best way to get rid of it is to have it removed by a dental hygienist. You and your family will benefit from routine dental cleanings because it will help ward off tooth decay, gum disease, and expensive restorative treatments to repair the damage. Having your teeth cleaned regularly will help you have a dazzling smile, but the health of your teeth and gums is the most important aspect of why these cleanings need to take place.
What Happens During a Dental Cleaning?
At your Made Ya Smile Dental cleaning, we will do our best to make you comfortable throughout every aspect of the cleaning. Using sterile, state-of-the-art dental instruments, your hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar buildup off of your teeth. We will even floss your teeth, too. Then, we will polish your teeth with the hopes of removing some surface stains and give your teeth a nice smooth finish for you to enjoy. Children and adults may need fluoride treatments at the end of the cleaning. We do this at the end because the fluoride varnish must sit on the teeth for at least 30 minutes (with no eating or drinking allowed) so that it can be absorbed.
You will need to brush and floss twice a day in order to help protect your teeth and gums in between dental cleanings. If you would like to see a demonstration on how to get the most out of brushing and flossing your teeth, we can demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques.

What happens if I don’t get my teeth cleaned?
Without getting your teeth cleaned routinely by a dentist, you may begin to experience tooth decay, discoloration of the teeth, gum disease, and, in some cases, lost teeth. Dental cleanings are vital for plaque removal and tartar removal, which can be hard to get rid of completely with at-home brushing. Buildup of these can lead to bacteria that causes enamel erosion and inflammation of the gums.
