Many people think that cosmetic dentistry is just about the aesthetics of the smile. While it does help that, cosmetic problems are often caused by further underlying dental issues. Drs. Gregory Hillyard and Alexandra Hillyard Monroe offer a variety of cosmetic options in their dental office in Media, PA. We’re currently welcoming patients looking for cosmetic dentistry in Newtown Square, PA, and the surrounding areas.
Straightening Crooked Teeth
One of the most common cosmetic dental concerns is crooked teeth. Crooked teeth impact both the aesthetics and the function of your smile. Crooked teeth are harder to clean and lead to an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease. They can make it harder to eat and talk, and cause damage to the other teeth around them.
Invisible braces are the ideal way to straighten your smile. Patients love them because they’re discreet and often take less time to get results. Instead of metal brackets and wires, clear plastic aligners slowly shift your teeth into place. You take them out to eat or practice your oral healthcare routine.
As with all of our services, we create a personalized treatment plan so you know exactly what to expect. No two patients are the same, even if they have similar problems. The dentist does a full evaluation to determine how long you’ll need to wear the aligners to achieve your desired result.
Botox and Facial Fillers
Botox and dermal fillers may not be things you think of getting at your dentist office. But dentists are uniquely capable to administer injectables. Dentists study the musculoskeletal structure of the face and understand its makeup. Dentists also perform extremely precise maneuvers in difficult areas. These skills are ideal for someone working with facial esthetics.
Dr. Hillyard Monroe has trained extensively at the Academy of Facial Aesthetics to perfect the skills needed to administer injectables. We believe that Botox and facial fillers can accentuate the beautiful smile you want to show off. But Botox can also assist in treatment for TMJ disorders and other head and neck pain problems.
A Versatile Cosmetic Tool
One of the most versatile cosmetic treatment options our office provides is porcelain veneers. They’re suitable to treat just about any cosmetic problem you’re suffering from. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental ceramic that cover the front and sides of the teeth. The dentist color-matches them to blend in perfectly with the rest of your smile.
Discolored teeth are the most common cosmetic dental issue. Professional teeth whitening treats many cases. But not all stains are responsive to this kind of treatment. Porcelain veneers completely cover the visible surface of your tooth. We color-match them to the shade of white you desire for an even smile.
Veneers can also conceal a variety of other flaws. Misshapen and disfigured teeth are made uniform. Gaps between teeth are closed and chipped and broken teeth are fixed. Porcelain veneers are a permanent restoration that lasts for life.
