It has been said that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” and we believe that should start with you! If you are unhappy with your smile due to discoloration or stains, then Dr. Marwa Forest can help!
Daily eating habits or increased age can cause tooth stains, but they aren’t something you have to live with. Our team feels it is imperative you not only have healthier teeth, but you love to show them when taking a selfie, family photo, or even when you laugh.
At Mint Dental, we offer two forms of teeth whitening: in-office treatment and take-home kits. Both these offerings provide you with a safe and effective way to brighten your smile.
In-office Whitening: There really is no substitute for professional teeth whitening administered by our cosmetic dentists in Edina and Shakopee, MN. In fact, our dentists can brighten your smile by up to eight shades in a single visit. The procedure is super simple and adaptable to your preferences.
Take-home Kits: You can also whiten your teeth at home or use these kits to maintain the white smile obtained at our office. The kits are custom-made and consist of comfortably fitting trays and specialized whitening gel. The strength of the gel and instructions will be determined during your visit with Dr. Forest and her team.
Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Do you want to straighten your crooked smile but are too embarrassed to wear metal braces? It can seem daunting, especially as an adult, to wear metal hardware in your mouth for a few years. We understand the frustration this option can bring. What if you could feel the health and beauty benefits of an aligned smile, without any metal in sight?
At Mint Dental, we have the ideal alternative to traditional braces: Invisalign®. These virtually invisible aligners gradually move your teeth into the ideal position and are custom-made for your smile. They provide a more professional, discreet, and flexible solution to those with an overbite, overcrowding, or similar orthodontic issues.
Dr. Marwa Forest is certified in Invisalign® and can guide you through your treatment. In keeping with our mantra of personalized dental care, your Invisalign® journey will be fully customized to you!

Being unhappy with your smile can have a detrimental effect on both your health and your confidence. When you visit our Edina and Shakopee cosmetic dentist, you are in the hands of a true smile artist. She can completely makeover your smile with the help of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are artificially made shells that bond to the surface of a tooth or teeth to cover gaps, cracks, and chips. They can not only correct your smiles imperfections but improve the color of your smile, as well. Veneers function as your normal teeth and are strong and stain-resistant.
When placing veneers, Dr. Forest and our dental professionals will first evaluate your smile and then prepare your teeth. This may involve reshaping them to make space for the new veneers. We’ll send off accurate impressions to our partner dental lab with exact specifications for your new teeth’s shape and color. Once ready, the veneers are carefully placed, adjusted, and then bonded to your teeth.
You are left with a beautiful smile that blends into your facial features and skyrockets your confidence!
Staff is awesome! Very accommodating to my needs and preferences. I love all the new technology that’s been added since Mint Dental took over!! You have to try them out!

From the severely stained to badly damaged, we have seen all kinds of teeth at Mint Dental. Due to our dedication to expertise and technology, we can provide beautiful, aesthetic solutions that can hide these issues.
Cosmetic dental bonding is another useful service that not only hides the imperfections of your smile but promotes improved function too. Dental bonding involves the use of tooth-colored, composite material layered onto your desired tooth. The material is shaped to give your smile more alignment, hide stains, and add balance.
Dr. Forest uses her artistic flair to create your dream smile. As she layers on the composite material, she shapes it and regularly shows you the progress being made. Once the right shape and size have been achieved, our dentist will polish the teeth for a beautiful shine.
You’ll revel in your new look and feel confident when showing your smile on any occasion.
