Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic or full mouth x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of decay between the posterior teeth.
Dental Implants are a great way to achieve a more natural looking smile. Implants can be used to replace a missing single tooth, multiple missing teeth, or placement of a removable appliance. Bethlehem Smiles works together with local implant specialist to place and restore dental impalnts
Bethlehem Smiles is pleased to announce the introduction of the new Trefoil™ implant retained denture system!

Teeth Whitening (Bleaching)
We provide several options for teeth whitening. The fastest method we offer is the ZOOM! WhiteSpeed LED bleaching system. With ZOOM! whitening you can get up to 8 shades whiter in about an hour. Other services are in the form of a take home procedure. All studies have show take-home methods to be as safe and effective as the in-office bleaching systems which are usually more expensive. With both our in-office and take-home systems you will be able to do touch-up procedures on your own schedule at home for years to come at minimal expense.
Dr. Jackie Owens is a certified Invisalign provider. Invisalign is an orthodontic technique which utilizes a series of clear, removable, virtually invisible retainers to straighten teeth. While Invisalign can not solve all orthodontic problems, it can solve many. Ask us if Invisalign is right for you.
Crowns and Veneers
You can have a new smile with all-porcelain crowns or veneers on the anterior teeth. For the posterior, we use a wide range of materials from porcelain fused to high noble metal and all ceramic.
Same Day Crowns
Using today's most innovative technologies we are happy to offer same day crowns. The Planmeca PlanMill 40 allows our office to create and place custom made crowns right here at the office, saving you both time and money. Watch this video to see how it works!
Light cured tooth colored resin fillings to match your teeth. We no long use silver colored amalgam restorations.
We perform root canals on anterior and premolar teeth. We also do some molar teeth. For more complex root canals or some emergency situations, we may refer to and endodontist or root canal specialist.
You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year. A periodontal treatment includes an Adult Prophy (basic cleaning). If it has been over a year since your last cleaning, possible treatment may include either Periodontal Scaling (deeper) or Root Planning and Scaling (requires anesthetic).
Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a night guard will help reduce the wear on your teeth and may reduce or eliminate the symptoms of TMJ discomfort. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials
Removable Dental Prosthesis
For missing teeth, we can make dentures or removable partials for you, when implants or implant retained prostheses are not an option.
