Our Cosmetic Solutions
Northgate Invisalign® is the invisible alternative to metal braces. These clear aligners are virtually invisible as well as removable and are custom-made just for you. The aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth.
Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten – you simply pop them in. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
Staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth cause tooth discoloration. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful smile.

Brighten your teeth with smile boost or plump up your lips and erase those aging lines around your mouth with lip enhancement.
Bonding is a conservative way to repair slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth. During dental bonding, a white filling is placed onto your tooth to improve its appearance in just one visit.
The filling “bonds” with your tooth, and because it comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades, it closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth.

Dental implants are the ideal solution for those who have a missing tooth. The implants are tiny titanium posts placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Implants can hold a crown, bridge, or over-denture just like roots hold natural teeth in place.
Implants are very durable and can last a lifetime. They require the same maintenance as natural teeth. Your Seattle dentist, Dr. Bello, is specially trained with dental implants.
Root canals are performed by an endodontist. Endodontists are dental specialists with an additional two or more years of specialized training in how to care for the inside of your tooth.
Root canals are necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected by deep decay, repeated dental procedures on a tooth, faulty crowns, a crack or chip in the tooth, or trauma. Your endodontist will remove the infected pulp, clean the area, and look to save the tooth. Thanks to modern technology, we can perform this procedure with minimal discomfort.
As part of our commitment to your overall health and the environment, we are a mercury-free practice. Our tooth-colored fillings (composites) are used stop cavities or fix any that have developed.
These fillings are not only unnoticeable, but they also add strength to weakened teeth. The results are esthetically pleasing and very strong thanks to new bonding technologies.
Crowns are very versatile and can be used to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size. It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling, attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that’s already broken.
A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. Each crown is made in a dental lab to your specifications and is designed to fit perfectly. They are a great natural-looking and strong choice for tooth restoration.
