One of the best ways to restore your smile to something that you are confident with is dental bonding. Dental bonding is one of the most popular services here at Philadelphia Dentistry because it is fast and affordable. If you are unfamiliar with dental bonding it is defined as placing a simple attachment of composite resin to the surface of your tooth or teeth that you want fixed to give it an all-natural, healthy look.

If you are dealing with issues like gaps or spaces between your teeth, teeth that are too short or chipped, tooth discoloration and even broken teeth, then dental bonding can change your life. At Philly Dentistry, we can almost always do same day treatment for dental bonding and get you that smile you’ve always wanted. When you come in to our Center City, Philadelphia office one of our excellent doctors will take a look and let you know exactly what the best option is for you to restore your smile. If it’s bonding then we will fix your smile as soon as possible! Your dental bonding has the strength to last up to 10 years as long as you take care of it just like your natural teeth. Patients should avoid chewing anything hard like candies, ice and other possibly harmful foods.

The process of dental bonding is very simple. Our doctors will show you a shade guide to make sure that the composite resin being used will match exactly to your natural teeth. They will then apply, mold and shape the resin to your teeth for a natural looking perfect smile. The composite resin is then hardened by a special light and then finally polished and smoothed for a flawless finish.
Give us a call today to see if you are a candidate for dental bonding and get that smile you have always wanted! 215-568-6222.

Did you know in the United Stated 1 in 4 people over the age of 65 have lost all their teeth? It’s mostly caused by gum disease, tooth decay and sometimes injury. It’s important to take care of your teeth because each tooth plays a vital role. Your teeth help you chew your food, speak clearly and of course show off your smile! When you lose your teeth and don’t replace them it can change the whole structure of your mouth, changing your appearance for the worse. Losing more than one tooth can cause your bite to shift onto your other teeth and over time will shift your teeth into where the missing teeth were. Not only will your teeth shift, but it will also be easier for plaque to build up in those missing spots which can result in gum infections that will lead to more missing teeth. Luckily, for you Philadelphia Dentistry has teeth replacement options so you can have an all-natural looking smile that you are proud to show off.

At Philadelphia Dentistry we offer several different options such as, implants, fixed bridges, full dentures and removable partial dentures. When you come in for your free new patient consultation one of our experienced doctors will give you a free exam and let you know which option, they think is best for your specific case.

1. Dental implants. Dental implants are a very popular option at Philly Dentistry for replacing missing teeth. Implants look and feel like your own teeth because we make sure we pick the best option that matches your natural teeth. Typically, implants are best used for replacing a single tooth, but can also be used to replace several teeth. The implant is a small titanium post that goes into the bone socket of the missing tooth and then the new tooth is securely placed on the post to give you a natural look so you can smile proud again.

2. Fixed bridges. Bridges are typically used to replace several missing teeth and are supported by implants or the teeth surrounding the gap. They are made from metal that is covered in porcelain and will give you a great natural smile.

3. Full Dentures. Known as conventional dentures they are an entire set of artificial upper and lower teeth. They are held in place by suction and may feel a bit awkward at first, but once you get used to wearing them you won’t even notice anything.

4. Removable partial dentures. Partial dentures are used to replace a limited number of teeth which are attached to a plastic base supported by the gums and your remaining teeth. These partial dentures can be taken out for cleaning and are usually less expensive than implants or bridges.

At Philly Dentistry our goal is to help Philly smile more, one patient at a time. If you have missing teeth or end up losing a tooth, have no fear because we have all the options to help you get that beautiful smile back. Don’t hesitate to call us today and schedule a free new patient consultation 215-568-6222.

We never want to damage our teeth on purpose, but unfortunately accidents happen. Chipping your teeth could leave you feeling embarrassed to talk, smile, and even cause you pain. The enamel on your teeth is one of the strongest materials in your body, but it does have its limits.

Some causes of chipped teeth
There are many ways you can chip your teeth, but here are a few of the most common causes:
*Biting down on something hard like candy or ice.
*Automobile accidents or falls.
*Playing sports without wearing a protective mouth guard.
*Grinding your teeth can cause chipping.

When you chip your teeth there are many risks that are involved such as, tooth decay and cavities that can wear down your enamel and weaken your teeth. This will cause more teeth to chip or crack. Anytime you wear down your enamel from grinding your teeth, eating acid-producing foods like fruit juices, coffee and even spicy foods will weaken the enamel and put you at a higher risk of chipping your teeth. The enamel wears down on your teeth as you age, so it is important to make sure you go to your routine checkups every 6 months so the dentist and hygienists can let you know what to do to protect your teeth from any chips or cracks.

Treatment Options for Chipped Teeth
Treatment for chipped teeth really depends on the location of the tooth. There are different options for chipped teeth and our great doctors will evaluate the problem and let you know what the best option is for your specific case.

The first option could be tooth reattachment. This option is if the fragment of the tooth has a clean break. If so, place the tooth in a glass of milk. The calcium from the milk will help the tooth stay alive. After that, it is important that you see the dentist right away so they could cement the broken piece back onto your tooth.

The next option for a chipped tooth is bonding. The porcelain composite is cemented onto the surface of the broken tooth and shaped to look natural. An ultraviolet light is then shined on the area to harden the material. The dentist will then again shape the material so that it fits perfectly with your other teeth to give it an all-natural look.

Another option will be a porcelain veneer. The first step with a porcelain veneer is that the dentist will smooth down some of your tooth’s enamel making room for the porcelain veneer. Typically, the dentist will smooth away about less than a millimeter of the tooth’s enamel. Next, an impression of your tooth will be made by our excellent dental assistants and then sent over to our trusted lab so they can create an all-natural looking veneer. In the meantime, when your veneer is being made at our lab we will place a temporary veneer on. When we receive your veneer back at our office the dentist will bond it to the chipped tooth making it look like nothing ever happened. Porcelain veneers can last up to 25 years will proper care!

Overall, chipped teeth are a very common dental injury, but in most cases, it doesn’t cause any great pain and can be easily treated at our Center City, Philadelphia office. Although, it is not considered a huge dental emergency the quicker you get treatment the less chance you may cause other dental complications.
