We use this term to cover all procedures designed to perfect and beautify a patient's smile. Changes in technology, technique and materials has made cosmetic dentistry more affordable and accessible. Having a smile worth being proud of is no longer limited to the rich and famous.
Cooley Smiles has taken advantage of the changes in cosmetic dentistry, combining the new technologies and lower costs to deliver self confidence to our patients. We take great pride in the smiles we've created over the last 35 years and we want to add you to our list of great smiles.
Cosmetic Dental Procedures
A smile is one of the first things people notice. Casual conversation, business meetings, job interviews and intimate encounters become more awkward when a person is self conscious about their smile. Cooley Smiles offers the Kenmore area a full range of cosmetic dentistry services to improve smiles:
Invisalign® Invisible Braces
We offer Invisalign clear aligners as a discrete alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments, such as braces. Invisalign treatment involves a series of trays that gradually move your teeth to a more proper position. We often recommend Invisalign clear aligners for adult patients who do not want their treatment to get in the way of their personal or professional life.

Patients looking for a less-invasive and more cost-effective solution may benefit from dental bonding. Dental bonding involves the application of composite resin, a putty-like material, to the surface of an aesthetically displeasing tooth. For example, dental bonding is an excellent solution for minor chips or cracks. During the procedure, the composite resin will be color-matched to the existing shade of your enamel, making it virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.

Tooth Colored Fillings
Tooth colored fillings, also called composite fillings, offer an aesthetically pleasing, safe, and effective way to fill cavities. Metallic fillings are highly noticeable and can mar an otherwise attractive smile. Today, with advances in cosmetic dentistry, your old metallic fillings can be replaced with tooth colored fillings, restoring beauty and reducing the risk of adverse reactions.

Porcelain inlays and onlays are tooth colored fillings that can be placed on back teeth to repair mild decay or damage. They are matched exactly to the color of your surrounding teeth and offer an aesthetically pleasing, safe alternative to traditional amalgam fillings.

Aesthetic Gum Lift
When most people think of cosmetic dentistry, they think only about their teeth. However, a gummy smile can have just as much negative impact on your appearance. When you have excessive gum tissue, your teeth may seem short or uneven. This can mar an otherwise beautiful smile. A gum recontouring procedure is a quick, painless way to correct the aesthetic issues caused by a gummy smile and restore beauty to your mouth.

One of the most common complaints we receive involves the brightness of our patients' smiles. For this reason, we offer professional teeth whitening treatment. Teeth whitening is one of the most basic and cost-effective ways to improve your smile.
As we get older, our teeth pick up stains from certain foods, drinks, medications, and personal habits. These stains, also known as extrinsic stains, are easy to remove with a bleaching solution. However, many store-bought bleaching products leave people dissatisfied with the results. Because we are trained professionals, we use a bleaching agent with a much higher concentration than store-bought alternatives. Our whitening treatment could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just a single appointment!

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that completely covers the visible portion of a damaged or decayed tooth. In previous years, a dental crown was fabricated using a gold or silver amalgam. These days, porcelain is usually the material of choice. Porcelain is a ceramic compound that mimics the light-reflective properties of natural enamel. It can also be textured and color-matched to your existing teeth. Thanks to porcelain and other ceramics, crowns can also be used to fix the aesthetics of an unsightly tooth.
