"My first visit at Made Ya Smile Kingwood could not have went better. The check in process was fast and easy and the front desk staff were friendly. Everyone in the back office was amazing including the staff that took my X-rays and the dental hygienist. They were super friendly and professional and put my anxiousness at ease. The dentist came in at the end and he was very personable and explained everything in detail. I feel like each person who saw me that day played an important role in making my experience so special and they made me feel important and heard. I will definitely be back and highly recommend them to family and friends. My only regret was not going there sooner!"- S.R. / Google / Nov 22, 2023

Who Is a Good Candidate For Digital X-rays?
Once a year, every patient should have a set of digital teeth x-rays performed — not just when something hurts. If you are a female patient, we will ask you if you are or could be pregnant at the time of your teeth scan. We want to take the extra precautions necessary if you are with child. Otherwise, our digital x-rays are made with low-radiation imaging for all ages. We feel that less is more when it comes to x-ray exposure and will only take them if necessary for preventive or restorative purposes.
How Do We Perform Digital X-rays?
The digital x-ray process is very fast and will not take up much time during your appointment. Before a cleaning or dental exam, we will take you to the area where we perform digital x-rays safely. With a sensor next to your teeth at various angles and sides, images are made and saved to your patient record. Our Made Ya Smile Dental team will use the x-rays to show you concerning areas and make treatment recommendations based on the findings.
What Happens After Digital X-rays?
X-rays do not need to have follow-up appointments. However, if you have a dental condition that your dentist is observing, then you may need to come back for x-rays as requested. Full panoramic x-rays will only be needed every 3 – 5 years, but bitewing x-rays are taken annually at your check-up appointment.
Does My Dental Insurance Cover a Digital X-rays?
Our billing department will want your insurance information to see what x-rays are covered under your current policy before the imaging takes place. If there are out-of-pocket expenses for x-rays we would like to perform, we will notify you before proceeding. We have multiple ways to make a payment at Made Ya Smile Dental, which can include payment plans through CareCredit® financing.
