Are you embarrassed to smile? Does this hold you back from making the most of life? No one should ever feel timid to smile or laugh. If you want something to change about your smile to make yourself more confident in your everyday life, Philly Dentistry is the best place to get all your cosmetic and general dentistry needs. A smile makeover with Philly Dentistry creates a beautiful new smile that will make you look younger, happier, and healthier.

Smile Makeovers at Philly Dentistry
There are many different cosmetic dentistry procedures that you can get specifically for whatever your dental needs may be. Chipped teeth? Misaligned teeth? Stains? Gapped teeth? No problem at all! Most dental fixes can be corrected with porcelain veneers from Philly Dentistry. Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular procedures at our dentistry. Patients love the fact that in only two visits they can have a total smile makeover with natural looking, straight, white, and beautiful porcelain veneers.

How are porcelain veneers applied?
At your first appointment for porcelain veneers you will begin the process with either Dr. Cirka, Dr. Meier, or Dr. Jeon by making an impression of your teeth and then creating a mold of how your teeth will look with porcelain veneers. Next, your impressions will be sent over to our trusted dental lab where they customize the veneers to look perfect for your smile. This process typically takes a few weeks for the lab to create your porcelain veneers and then send them back to our office.

Once your veneers are the right shape, color, and size our doctors will then prep your teeth that are receiving the porcelain veneers. Prepping the teeth usually consists of a cleaning and some light sanding so the veneers fit perfectly to your teeth. After the prepping of your teeth the veneers will then be put in place. Once they are placed they will be formed to your mouth shape and face so your smile looks beautiful and most importantly, natural. When you and the dentist are completely satisfied with the appearance of your new smile makeover, a specialized light will be used to dry the cement and permanently bond the porcelain veneers to your teeth. Just like that in only two visits Philadelphia Dentistry could completely revamp your smile! Give us a call today and get that smile you always wanted 215-568-6222.

During the whole month of July, you can take advantage of our monthly special of $500 off your Invisalign treatment, plus free custom-made bleach whitening trays. Invisalign is the new convenient way of straightening your teeth for less money and time. Throughout, your Invisalign treatment it is very important that you follow the doctor’s instructions so that you can achieve that smile you always wanted. Here are some tips about Invisalign to help you get the most out of your treatment.

Adults Traveling - 3

1. Flossing.
Every day you should be brushing your teeth along with flossing too. Flossing is extremely important, especially during your Invisalign treatment because any left-over food particles can be held in your mouth when wearing your aligners. Be sure to floss thoroughly every day before wearing your aligners so you can get the most out of your treatment.

2. Wearing your aligner trays for at least 22 hours a day.
If you commit to wearing your aligners for 22 hours a day you will achieve the most from your Invisalign treatment. Invisalign only works if you’re willing to wear your aligners for most of the time. By wearing your aligners for at least 22 hours a day your treatment will take less time and your results will be very positive.

3. Changing your aligners in the right order and on time.
If Dr. Cirka, Dr. Meier, or Dr. Jeon let you know it’s time to change your aligner, it’s time to move on to the next set of trays. If the doctors tell you to keep the aligners in for a few extra days, let them in. Your treatment will not speed up if you’re not listening to your doctor by putting different trays in without being instructed first.

4. It may feel a little weird, but you’ll get used to it.
When you first start your Invisalign treatment it can feel a little weird because you are not used to wearing your trays, but don’t worry you will get used to it in no time. Most people say that they feel the aligners pushing against their teeth when they first start Invisalign. This feeling is not in any way painful unlike with metal braces after they’re adjusted. The best thing to do is to wear your aligners as much as possible so you’ll get used to them and eventually not even notice you have them in.

5. Knowing how to take care of your aligners.
Cleaning your trays is very important during your Invisalign treatment. The best way to clean your aligners is with antibacterial soap and some warm water. We do not recommend cleaning your trays with toothpaste because this can scratch the plastic, which in turn creates places for bacteria to get in.

6. Keeping your mouth clean.
It is important to keep your mouth very clean during your Invisalign treatment. It’s important because when you’re wearing your trays the plaque and bacteria you miss can be held against your teeth causing your teeth to become decayed or get cavities. Make sure every day that you are brushing at least twice and flossing at least once to ensure that your mouth stays healthy during your Invisalign treatment.

7. Using your retainer properly.
At the end of your treatment you will be instructed on wearing your retainer by one of our three outstanding doctors. Some patients make the mistake of not wearing their retainer after their Invisalign treatment, which means that their teeth may shift back and they’ll lose some of their progress they gained from Invisalign. Often times, the doctor will instruct you to wear your retainer for most of the day during the first few months and then to wear it only when you go to bed. It’s important to not miss any of your follow-up appointments so the doctors can track your progress and to see if you are doing everything correctly.
