Achieve that Radiant Smile
within Days

The results are immediate and life-changing. Imagine getting pictures taken of your smile and each individual tooth by a porcelain lab photographer. Then imagine the perfect colors for your anterior teeth. This will be achieved with a scan of the images using a laser. At the lab, the master ceramists will analyze these images to create the perfect teeth to complement your natural smile. We can also change your smile according to your treatment plan.

Cosmetic dentistry is so easy with our modern approach to dental health and is just one of the many dental services offered.

Dental Service provided at Hillside Dental at Bethany include:

Natural Looking Fillings

Composites are an inexpensive, conservative way to restore a tooth. We use them as an alternative to mercury fillings.

Emergency Treatment

Sometimes emergencies arise. We will do our best to make you feel better. Once Dr. Forster has assessed the situation, we will be happy to assist you in making the very best choice regarding your treatment options.

Cleaning and Prevention

It is very important to maintain good oral hygiene. If your teeth are clean, you have a much greater chance of not having dental problems. Dr. Forster promotes regular brushing, flossing and dental cleanings as the best tools to avoid unnecessary discomfort.

Laser Cavity Removal

Typically, Waterlase Dentists use fewer shots and less anesthesia reducing patient anxiety and providing a more relaxing dental experience.

Removal of Problematic Teeth

One of the common dental services we perform is a tooth extraction, which means a simple or surgical removal of a tooth.

Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal therapy is a procedure used to save teeth that have been compromised by very, very deep cavities or trauma. The cavities and infected tissues in the tooth are cleaned out with antibacterial liquid, and as part of our dental services, we place “gutta percha” fillings within the canals.

What’s a “gutta percha” filling?

Gutta percha fillings are sterile, plastic materials that are secured with a sealer to prevent possible micro-leakage or re-infection. Root canal therapy can be completed in just one visit because the cleaning method is quicker by rotary hand pieces.

Relief for sensitive teeth

Of the dental services we provide, gutta percha fillings provide relief those who have suffered from sensitive teeth. After administering gutta percha fillings of root canal therapy, the affected tooth will have no sense of feeling to temperature or sweets!


Another dental service provided is the application of crowns, which are esthetic restorations to cover the entire surface of a tooth.

Here’s what a crown provides:
