Look Good. Feel Great. Smile More.
At Bell Dental Studio, we combine our 40 years of experience with the newest technology to bring you quality dental care in Austin. We use the revolutionary guided biofilm therapy (GBT) to remove plaque more effectively when we perform teeth cleanings. Even with good brushing and flossing, plaque develops over time on both your teeth and gums, and it can lead to periodontal concerns and other health issues if left untreated.
“It feels like a warm sweet spray on your teeth and cleans better than traditional methods.” - Satisfied patient
Getting professional cleanings at least twice a year helps get rid of buildup. The GBT technology makes it easier to keep your teeth healthy and whiter. Our office is open Monday through Thursday, from 7.30am to 4pm for your convenience. Our team is available to address any questions or concerns you may have. When you visit us, we can also share practical tips to improve your daily oral hygiene routine.
How Does Guided Biofilm Therapy Work?
Dental biofilm, or plaque, is the sticky layer made of bacteria that coats your teeth and can lead to decay and gum disease if you don’t get it professionally removed. When you see us for a teeth cleaning, our hygienist first performs a thorough evaluation of your dental situation to identify any concerns that may require follow-up appointments or adjustments to your daily oral hygiene routine.
Guided biofilm therapy makes it easier for us to safely remove plaque thanks to a dye we apply to your teeth to make buildup visible. It also helps us share with you which areas may need additional treatment. To safely get rid of plaque, we use AirFlow technology and other non-metallic tools to keep the process efficient but gentle.
After removing the biofilm, we can apply a fluoride seal to protect your teeth. We usually recommend two checkups and cleanings per year, but we may choose a different schedule based on your specific needs.

At Bell Dental Studio, we want you to look good, feel great, and smile more. To make this a reality, we include the latest dentistry progresses into our services, such as GBT. This cleaning technology yields impressive results and is less abrasive than traditional cleanings.
Guided Biofilm Therapy offers many benefits, including:
- A faster procedure that is convenient to fit into your busy schedule
- Less invasive and gentler on your teeth and gums

GBT is an appropriate treatment for most patients of any age, but is an especially good option for those who have gum disease, sensitive teeth, braces, or veneers. GBT is safe to use on natural and artificial teeth.
With guided biofilm therapy, we can safely remove the biofilm and its bacteria to minimize your risk of tooth decay and other dental concerns. After this quick and easy treatment, your teeth will be whiter, and you can smile with confidence!
