Dentistry involves more than just maintaining your oral health. At Spektor Dental, we also offer services in cosmetic dentistry, which is a specialization of dental science that seeks to improve the appearance of your smile. Dr. Wendy Spektor has built a reputation among the communities of Bellevue, Medina and Newcastle for creating beautiful, natural-looking smiles.
Let's learn more about our program of cosmetic dentistry.
What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?
Multiple studies and surveys have found that the first feature people are likely to notice when they meet you is your smile. Making a good first impression can impact your professional future, as well as your social life; for example, one study found that 40 percent of those polled would not take a second date with a potential partner with crooked teeth.
When you look in the mirror and smile, are you happy with what you see? If not, rest assured, you aren’t alone. Many of us have some aspect of our smile we’d like to improve. If you dislike your smile, this can affect your self-esteem and lower your self-confidence. Seeing celebrities on TV or in magazines flashing their perfect-looking teeth could magnify your perceived image of how you feel about your teeth.
The reality is that very few people naturally have beautiful smiles. Instead, they enhance their smiles with cosmetic dentistry.

What should you look for in a cosmetic dentist?
A top-rated cosmetic dentist has completed post-graduate education and training in this specialty, and Dr. Wendy Spektor is no exception to that rule. She completed her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Washington’s School of Dentistry and then pursued continuing education at the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. A member of several prestigious professional organizations for dentists, she has more than 30 years of total experience in the field of dentistry and is known for creating beautiful, natural smiles.
Technology and Materials
Ever heard the phrase that a craftsman is only as good as their tools? A state-of-the-art cosmetic dentist uses the latest advances in technology, combined with top-of-the-line materials, to produce beautiful results for their patients. In a single short visit, using the ICON technology, we can help stop the progression of early cavities and remove unsightly white spots. At Spektor Dental, our crowns and veneers are crafted from many tooth colored materials that are resistant to stains and have a translucent quality similar to real tooth enamel. Our Bellevue cosmetic dentist will match the dental porcelain to your natural teeth, allowing your restoration to blend seamlessly with your smile.
Possessing certifications or professional memberships does much more than just look good hanging on the wall of your dentist’s office. For patients, these professional qualifications provide peace of mind because you know you are being seen by an experienced and highly trained practitioner. At Spektor Dental, Dr. Spektor has received multiple honors from publications in the Seattle and Bellevue areas, including 425 Magazine, Seattle Metropolitan (SeattleMet), and the Bellevue Reporter.
