Professional teeth whitening is a fast cosmetic dentistry procedure that can dramatically brighten your enamel by several shades in one appointment.

Is Teeth Whitening Right for Me?

If you desire a brighter smile in a short period of time, teeth whitening can be an ideal option. Prior to getting professional teeth whitening, an experienced member of our team will assess your teeth and gums to determine that they are healthy enough for the treatment. Then, we will recommend a treatment plan based on your concerns and goals. Professional teeth whitening can give you fast, dramatic results by reducing discoloration deep within your natural enamel. Considered an advantage compared to over-the-counter whitening treatments, your teeth whitening treatment at MINT dentistry will be personalized, so you'll get the results you want.

How Does In-Office Whitening Work?

You don’t have to undergo dental anesthesia with in-office teeth whitening at MINT dentistry. However, if you have a sensitive gag reflex or dental anxiety, various sedation options are available. Your teeth need to get cleaned and dried prior to the procedure so that the whitening solution can be applied evenly. Afterward, a protective covering will be placed over your soft tissues and your eyes will be protected with special glasses. A member of our Brentwood, MD team will place a professional-grade gel to your teeth and expose your teeth to our advanced teeth whitening lamp. The blend of this light and gel works to lessen the stain in the enamel. Depending upon your current enamel color and desirable result, this procedure could be repeated 2 – 3 more times. Once your procedure is finished, the rest of the gel and protective gum barrier is going to be removed before your mouth is rinsed.

Maintain Your Teeth Whitening Results

You’ll be able to leave following your procedure unless some form of dental sedation was used. However, you should stay away from products that will stain your teeth (coffee, lipstick, tobacco products) for at least two days following your treatment. You will encounter some sensitivity to hot and cold — this should only last for 3 – 5 days. To maintain your results, you must brush your teeth whenever possible after having staining food and drinks in addition to tobacco products. When at home, you must stick to a daily oral hygiene routine, including cleaning and flossing to avoid new stains. Dental cleanings twice a year at our Brentwood, MD office can also help minimize new stains to help keep your smile looking brilliant. If you want to refresh your results after a few years, you can schedule a second laser whitening procedure or ask a MINT dentistry staff member about other whitening choices.

The MINT Commitment

Because teeth whitening is considered a cosmetic dental procedure, it is usually not covered by your dental insurance policy. During your first appointment at our Brentwood, MD office, a member of our team will estimate your costs and tell you about your payment options. MINT dentistry is committed to making sure you have the beautiful smile you desire. Ask your dentist about our current specials, medical financing, or our MINT Discount Plan to make your aesthetic treatments more affordable.
