Dental Cleaning Cost: Everything You Need To Know

Dental Cleaning Costs – Through the Roof! 

Have you or a member of your family skipped a visit to the dentist due to high dental cleaning cost? You’re not alone.  

More than 100 million Americans don’t visit the dentist because they can’t afford it. 

As hard as it is to afford a regular teeth cleaning, it’s even harder to afford that deep cleaning cost – ouch! 

At Brighter Image Lab, we know not many people have the spare time to call around and find the average dental cleaning cost. So, we did a nation-wide survey to find the average cost of a new patient dental cleaning in real time.

We made the calls, so you don’t have to.

Do Your Own Teeth Cleaning from Home!

As the cost of a dental cleaning rises and dental insurance coverage plummets, the average person is left with options that are unattractive at best, and discriminatory at worst. Because of this, many people don’t get their teeth professionally cleaned.

Fortunately, Brighter Image Lab offers affordable smile solutions for everyone looking to improve their smile. Brighter Image Lab’s revolutionary Smile-Care System challenges the ‘Dentist or Nothing’ mind set and empowers the average person to clean, bleach, and polish their own teeth at home.

For too long, state boards everywhere believed that dentists own a major piece of real estate in the human mouth. At Brighter Image Lab, we’re not afraid of trespassing.

Bil Watson, Brighter Image Lab Director:

“We believe that treatments like teeth bleaching aren’t just a luxury reserved only for the rich, and that monthly teeth polishing is undervalued as a preventative measure. I Believe that Dentists stand to profit too much by protecting the status quo and that’s why any real solution would have to come from outside the dental industry. When creating this system, we had to address every part of what is wrong with dental care, and fix it; access, cost, time, information, and effectiveness. We essentially had to challenge every dentist is the country for not coming to market with a comprehensive solution, before now.”

In 1997, we saw that cosmetic dentistry was not being made available to everyone. So, we began our fight to reclaim the mouth from the greed of modern dentistry. Only the people who could afford to pay the ever-rising rates of dental care were rewarded the right to a better smile.

For the past 23 years, we have been working to solve this problem. Inequality and misinformation run wild throughout the dental industry. Every day marginalized people are overcharged or turned away as a result of negligence and greed.

Brighter Image Lab combats this crisis on a daily basis by offering affordable solutions to a variety of dental needs. One of these affordable solutions is the Bilistic Smile-Care System. This unique one-of-a-kind system allows clients to take back what was always theirs — the right to bleach, clean, and polish their own teeth.


With the help of our revolutionary products, clients around the world are now able to perform many teeth cleaning routines from the comfort of their own homes.

No dentist, no office visits, no inflated fees. Just a smile solution at an affordable price. Each step in the Bilistic Smile-Care System ensures you receive the best results money can buy–at a price you can afford.

Bilistic Smile-Care System


Traditionally, dentists and hygienists use expensive tools for removing tartar and hardened calculus from teeth.

With our Tartar Softening Detox Serum, you don’t need the specialized scalers a dental hygienist uses to loosen and remove buildup, just the tools we offer at Brighter Image Lab!

Our Detox Serum is made of three ingredients, each sourced for its effectiveness:

  1. 1A concentrated tartar softener that removes even the toughest calculus buildup
  2. 2A re-mineralizing agent that helps strengthen the tooth and enamel
  3. 3A desensitizer that coats, rather than clogs, the pores of your teeth to reduce sensitivity

Brighter Image Lab’s revolutionary Detox Serum is the first of its kind, and so is our Black Infusion tray!

The Black Infusion treatment tray has a more precise fit than any bleaching tray before it.

It allows our treatment material to soak into the tooth without being compromised by the natural enzymes in saliva, penetrating the surface and accessing the tubular pores of the tooth. 

At Brighter Image Lab, we only give you the best. We offer the highest quality tools at a fair price, so you know you’re getting the best there is–at a price you can afford.

If you’re paying for professional teeth bleaching, you aren’t getting the consistently impressive results you’re paying for.

You are pointlessly bleaching invisible layers of bio-film, calculus, plaque and tartar  rather than your actual teeth. 

We think you deserve better. 

Brighter Image Lab’s Detoxing Serum dissolves bio-film, plaque, tartar and calculus. 

It provides direct, un-compromised access to the surface area of the tooth – making it possible to achieve a “full-curing” for the brightest teeth you’ve ever had. 

The Pure Bleach system delivers consistently impressive teeth whitening results you can’t find anywhere else. 

Stop settling for sub-par bleach treatments. Want to learn more about this revolutionary system? Read on!

Of everything we put into our Bilistic Cleaning System, our Bilistic Polisher has to be the piece we’re the most proud of.

Because a smooth surface collects less bacteria and accumulates less plaque, Micro Surface Polishing is one of the most underrated treatments for preventative oral care. It cleans hard to reach areas and helps prevent gum disease.

Bringing this tool out of the dentist office and into the hands of everyday people has created an unprecedented shift in personal dental hygiene.

When you see how the light reflects off your perfectly polished smile, you’ll demand an explanation as to why this wasn’t made available years ago.

Our National Survey

Once you try our Bilistic Smile-Care system, you’ll wonder why you even need  your teeth cleaned by a dentist, especially after you learn what they (over) charge. Continue reading to find out!

Over the course of two days, I called two dental offices from each state in the country at random to get a quote for a new patient cleaning without dental insurance. 

When I started this call list, I thought every call would take about a minute to complete. Just call, get the price, and move on to the next. 

Instead, I found the voice on the other end of the phone was often rude and reluctant to offer exact pricing. 

Of the 100 offices I called, five refused to give any quote over the phone. Even when pushed for a hypothetical guess, they refused.

Two offices called back numerous times with hounding sales pitches when I ended the call without making an appointment.

They tried constantly to get my name and information. 

Two offices that missed my call replied with an automated text message.

One Pennsylvania office returned my missed call three times in two minutes. 

Very few offices asked for X-rays from a previous dentist. Most were misleading and implied I needed to have a full workup.

Long story short, it was very hard to get an accurate price for a dental cleaning. 

With all the oral health struggles people face on a daily basis, offering transparent, upfront pricing is the least dentists can do. 

Nevertheless, dental professionals everywhere continue to mislead clients and offer little to no information on pricing.

Curious about how much you can expect to pay at the dentist?

Keep reading to learn just how much is a dental cleaning without insurance!

What does dental cleaning cost without insurance? 

With virtually no accurate quotes available online, it is harder than ever to determine the cost of a dental cleaning.

Not many people have the spare time to call around and find the best price for a dental cleaning. 

So, we took it upon ourselves to call two dentists from every state in the country at random. We said:

 “Hi, I’m calling to get the price for a new patient teeth cleaning.” 

Many offices offered a suspiciously small figure ($50-1$00) at first, but when pushed for more information, revealed that figure would only pay for the cleaning procedure.

The cost of the cleaning appointment would be hundreds more (up to $500). 

It concerned me to see that many people who call for a dental cleaning quote are often mislead.

They are given such small figures over the phone but receive after treatment bills that are three–or even four–times the price. 

Even more concerning was the inconsistency of teeth cleaning cost.

Prices for an all-inclusive new patient cleaning ranged from $70 to over $500.  That’s a $400+ difference!

This proves that every dentist in America has the ability to offer a $70 new patient cleaning. Instead, they use the $400+ upcharge as pocket change while many struggle to pay their bills. 

Over charging for dental services is wrong! Read on to learn about deep cleaning cost.

Deep Cleaning Cost

A dental deep cleaning is a treatment that cleans between the gums and teeth down to the roots.

Like a regular cleaning, deep cleaning teeth requires the hygienist to clean the tooth, gum line and sides of the teeth.

However, the process of deep cleaning teeth goes a step further, removing tartar buildup down below the gum line to the root of the tooth.

This process can also be referred to as a “root planing and scaling” and may require several visits in order to complete the treatment.

Deep cleaning teeth cost is more expensive than a standard cleaning.

It is often used to treat gum disease and to stop it from becoming worse.

It requires anesthesia and several follow up visits to make sure the infection has been cleared and your gums are healing.

Deep cleaning cost ranges from $140 to $300, depending on your location and your dentist. Your dental insurance may or may not cover it.

How to save money on teeth cleanings

If you’re worried about teeth cleaning costs, there are a few places you can find reduced dental cleaning costs: 

Brighter Image Lab

Brighter Image Lab reduces dental cleaning cost by cutting the dentist out of the equation.

Our Bilistic Detoxification Serum deep cleans, desensitizes, re-mineralizes, and works to dissolve tartar and calculus

This product will significantly reduce your dental cleaning cost by  deep cleaning teeth for a fraction of the average price.

Dental Schools

A dental school can be a great place to find a reduced deep cleaning teeth cost.

Most dental schools have clinics that allow dental students to gain experience by offering reduced deep cleaning cost.

All students are monitored by a professional with extensive experience in deep cleaning teeth.

Government Programs

Your government or local health department may offer programs that provide free or reduced deep cleaning teeth cost.

Contact your local or state health department to learn more about their dental assistance programs.

COVID-19 Related Dental Cleaning Cost

On top of their already inflated prices, some dentist offices are beginning to exploit the COVID-19 pandemic by charging an “infection control fee.

These fees have been reported to range between $15 and $150.

Charging an “infection control fee” on top of an already steep dental cleaning cost is wrong.

It makes patients accountable for their own safety, as it holds them responsible for sanitation cost.

To make matters worse, many people are hurting financially as a result of pandemic layoffs. 

Consequently, they are no longer covered by health insurance and are struggling as it is to pay out-of-pocket dental costs.

covid-19 infection control fee

The addition of an “infection control fee” or an “infectious disease fee” on top of the already inflated teeth cleaning cost is frankly obnoxious.

While the $15 charge may pale in comparison to the hundreds of dollars spent on a new patient cleaning, the fee remains unjustifiable.

Don’t let your dentist take advantage of you. 

Choose Brighter Image Lab today and achieve a perfect smile without the hidden fees!


Over 100 million Americans don’t visit the dentist because they can’t afford it. 

A nation-wide survey found that dental cleaning costs drastically differ from office to office, ranging from $70 to over $500.
