The staff of Brite Dental Services looks forward to meeting you and working with you. Brite Dental Services has been providing care to patients in the Atlanta area for more than a decade. We pride ourselves on our friendliness and on the expertise of our personnel.
Dr. Janna Beck is the orthodontist at the center of our practice. She is a native of Atlanta and earned her Certificate of Orthodontics and Master of Science degree in Dentistry at the Dental College of Georgia at Augusta University. Dr. Beck is also an avid tennis and golf player.
Our staff is rounded out by our four expert dental technicians—Paula, Tiffany, Rosina, and Drake.

Never underestimate how important oral health is to your overall health and wellbeing.
At Brite Dental Services, we’ll make sure that you end up with an attractive smile, and also with a healthy mouth. Many different diseases show signs in our mouths. On each of your visits, our staff will not only check the alignment of your teeth and jaw to improve your bite and smile, but also look for. Bad breath Bad breath can be an indicator of many different illnesses.
Healthy saliva Saliva contains vital enzymes that destroy bacteria, proteins that inhibit fungus and antibodies that attack disease-causing organisms. Without sufficient healthy saliva, your mouth may become infected with oral thrush. Tooth decay Correcting and preventing tooth decay will allow you to keep your own teeth throughout your lifetime, and will protect against infections in your mouth. Plaque Did you know that more than 500 species of bacteria live in your mouth.
These bacteria are the source of plaque, a sticky film that clings to teeth. A buildup of plaque can lead to many other problems, including gum disease. Gum disease Gum disease is an infection, caused by a buildup of bacteria.
The mildest form is called gingivitis. A more serious gum infection is periodontitis. And the most dangerous kind of gum infection is acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis, commonly called trench mouth. Untreated gum disease can cause problems by spreading bacteria throughout your body.
In rare cases, gum disease may cause a heart attack or stroke, or in the case of pregnant women, premature labor and birth.
At Brite Dental Services, we care about your oral health, so although we specialize in orthodontic services, we do a routine oral exam every time we see a patient. However, we don’t perform general dental services such as checkups and cleanings, fillings and crowns. We can happily refer you to a dentist who can provide those services. In some cases, we may refer you to a specialist who can better handle a situation.
Whatever services you may need to keep your family’s mouths healthy, we can provide them.
Specialty Services Offered
In addition to the orthodontic services we offer see the Services Provided page for more information , we offer the following specialty services. Bridges For patients with missing teeth, a dental bridge consisting of one or more prosthetic teeth anchored to surrounding real teeth may be required. Dental implants Rather than using a bridge to fill in a gap caused by missing teeth, our patients often choose to have an implant, where a prosthetic tooth is anchored to the jawbone just like a natural tooth.
Custom Mouth Guards If you or your child needs a mouth guard for protection during sports, or if you need a night guard to prevent grinding or clenching while you sleep, our modern techniques will create a guard that comfortably fits your mouth. Laser Treatments When there is a buildup of bacteria around dental devices such as braces , we may choose to do a laser treatment to quickly improve the health of the area. At Brite Dental Services, we take your health seriously. All instruments are sterilized between patients, and disposable parts are thrown away after each use.
Our technicians are trained in modern hygienic techniques. You’ll notice that all of us will wear masks and gloves whenever we work with you. If a patient is allergic to latex, we will use vinyl gloves. Our equipment and water delivery and suction systems are routinely inspected and sterilized.
Our offices are cleaned on a nightly basis, or more often if needed, by personnel specially trained in cleaning health care offices. Hygiene is important at your home, too. Our staff will teach you how to care for your orthodontic appliances to keep them clean and attractive and keep your mouth healthy. We specialize in orthodontic services, including.
Invisible Straightening This is one of our most popular services. Instead of traditional wires and brackets, patients use a series of customized clear aligning appliances to straighten their teeth. Each aligning appliance is created by state-of-the-art computer technology to fit perfectly and move your teeth gradually into perfect alignment. Appliances must be removed for eating and drinking.
Orthodonture for Teens By age 12, most children have all permanent teeth in place, and if they are crooked, this is the perfect time to fix alignment. Many teens wear braces, so your child will not feel ostracized, and the high metabolic and growth rate of children at this age can shorten treatment time. Your child will emerge into adulthood with a confident smile. Orthodonture for Adults Tooth alignment can be accomplished at any age, and many adults now realize that gaps or crooked teeth can affect more than just your smile.
Alignment problems can affect your health by contributing to abnormal wear of teeth, gum disease and bone loss, jaw pain, and even headaches. SmileWire Straightening This high-tech service involves computerized mapping of your teeth and your alignment plan. After the map is complete, a robot accurately bends a wire that will help to gently force your teeth into alignment. Metal and Ceramic Braces Metal braces are stainless steel; ceramic braces have clear brackets.
As ceramic braces are more fragile than metal, we generally recommend them only for adult patients. Corrective Jaw Surgery If orthodontic treatment cannot remedy a problem can perform orthognathic surgery. We use only state-of-the-art techniques and materials to reduce recovery time and enhance results. Retainers We offer a variety of retention types to keep your teeth aligned after treatment.
The range varies from transparent trays similar to our invisible straightening devices, more sturdy metal and acrylic types, and even bonded retainers cemented to your teeth.
During your initial visit, we will take x-rays and discuss which methods are most likely to achieve the results you want.
