Free Whitening

MINT dentistry is the first in the United States to offer complimentary home teeth whitening treatments to patients with PPO dental insurance. While it may seem too good to be true, we mean completely free. Period. If you have PPO dental insurance, our team will create complimentary custom dental trays and provide you with professional-strength whitening gel to use during home whitening treatments. When applied every day for the recommended amount of time, this gel can brighten your teeth up to seven shades, often over the course of 4 – 5 days. To help maintain your teeth whitening results, MINT dentistry in Brentwood, MD will offer whitening gel refills during subsequent cleaning visits and replace your whitening trays when they are lost or worn out.

How Often Should I Get My Teeth Cleaned?

A prophylactic cleaning helps to minimize your risk of cavities by removing plaque accumulation on the teeth, which is the main cause of tooth decay. A cleaning also addresses tartar and stain accumulation on your enamel that can make your teeth appear darker in color. To improve the look of your teeth, freshen your breath, and boost your overall health, schedule an appointment for a cleaning at our Brentwood, MD MINT dentistry practice. The American Dental Association (ADA) encourages all patients to have a professional dental prophylaxis a minimum of twice a year.

What Happens During a Dental Cleaning?

When you arrive at MINT dentistry for your dental cleaning, we will seat you in one of our massaging treatment chairs. Our team will give you a pair of our signature MINT sunglasses to protect your eyes before a member of our team begins to gently remove the plaque and tartar deposits that have accumulated on your teeth. State-of-the-art dental technology and advanced techniques are used at MINT dentistry to eliminate plaque and tartar deposits without harming your tooth structure or causing you any distress. First, an ultrasonic scaler that emits high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist will be used to carefully clear away larger pieces of tartar and plaque. Next, a hand instrument, such as a scaler or curette, will be utilized to remove the remaining buildup. Every tooth will be individually treated for ideal hygienic results. Once your teeth are clean, your enamel will be carefully polished to reduce surface stains and brighten your teeth. If requested or recommended, a fluoride treatment may be performed following the cleaning process.

Throughout your cleaning visit, we will take steps to make certain you remain completely relaxed. With massage chairs, Beats headphones, and cutting-edge dental tools, we create such a positive experience, you may forget you are at the dentist! Our boutique dental practice in Brentwood, MD was designed with our patients in mind, creating a modern, upscale atmosphere for you to enjoy at every dental visit.

After Your Dental Cleaning

A MINT dentistry professional will also explain the steps on how to get the best possible results from your home whitening kit to help keep your smile bright and beautiful all year long.
