    Do you scroll through celebrities’ Instagram pages and find yourself wishing you had a perfect smile like them? Stop wishing and let’s make it happen. This month, we welcome all of our patients to take advantage of our May Veneer Special! When you buy 6 veneers, our office is offering 2 veneers for FREE! That is a total of 8 veneers. With this special, your smile would be transformed into one of the perfect smiles you see online.

    March Special Veneers

    One of the most eminent qualities of veneers is their sheer capacity to withstand everyday wear and tear despite the fact that they are made out of the most slender dental porcelain. The sturdiness of porcelain veneers can’t be contested, as the quality is the very best. Even though they are very thin, porcelain veneers are extremely strong. On average, porcelain veneers last up to 15+ years with the proper care.

    Porcelain veneers are a quick cosmetic fix. They will allow you to have your dream smile in only 2 visits. Come in for a free consultation and we can talk about a treatment plan that’s right for you. Give us a call at (215)-568-6222 to schedule your appointment. To see before and after photos, check us out on social media. We can be found on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

    Do you have discolored teeth? Are you tired of over-the-counter whitening strips not giving you the results you want? Stop wasting your money. Professional whitening is the most efficient whitening treatment as the results are almost instant. Offices normally charge up to $800 for whitening trays, but not us. For the entire month of May, we are offering $169 custom-made bleaching trays! This deal is too good to pass up, so take advantage of it while you can.

    Let’s talk about some important things to know about bleaching trays. To get the best results, your teeth need to be super clean. It is best to have a proper hygiene cleaning done before applying bleaching gel to your teeth. During your cleaning, your hygienist will remove any tartar or plaque that might be built up on your teeth. Removing all the bad stuff makes for the best whitening results!

    May whitening special
    In addition to your cleaning, one of our awesome team members will perform an oral health exam on you. Again, to get the best whitening results, we must ensure your oral health is up to par. During your exam, we will be looking for things like tooth decay or gum disease. If any signs are pointing to an oral health problem, we will get you healthy before the teeth whitening is done.
    Finally, the bleaching trays can be made! Your trays will be custom-made to fit perfectly to your bite. The trays and gel will then be given to you with easy instructions to take home. All of your questions can be answered by one of our team members. These trays are great because they allow patients to whiten their teeth in the privacy of their own home at their own pace. The bleaching gel should be applied for 10 minutes a day for 7-10 days. This will give you the best possible results as your teeth can jump up to 6 shades brighter! Also, this inexpensive treatment lasts up to 2 years. So, if you have ever felt self-conscious about the color of your smile, now is the time to make a change. Take advantage of this amazing deal and be confident with your smile again!

    We love our patients! There are hundreds of dental offices in center city Philadelphia, yet our patients continue to show their loyalty to us year after year. We take pride in creating long-lasting relationships with our patients. To spread the word, our patients have left reviews about their experiences with us on sites like Google, Yelp, and Facebook. Our patient’s feedback is very important to us as we are always trying to better ourselves. We appreciate all of the feedback, suggestions, and kind words. Seriously, our team starts every morning by reading a new online review. Hearing our patient’s reviews gets our team pumped for the next day! In this blog, we wanted to highlight some of our favorites. These reviews, in particular, brought big smiles to our team’s faces.

    5 Stars

    “I think I share the same sentiments with most of you…that dental work is one of the highest forms of torture this planet has to offer. The sounds of drilling, hands ceaselessly probing in your mouth, the smell and taste of fluoride, and all the while you’re sitting under the brightest most intrusive fluorescent lights. It’s like the 8th circle of hell.

    However, I must tell you I have never felt more comfortable in my life than I have sitting in this Dentist office. A chipped tooth necessitated a crown and lead me to meet Dr. Ridge, Stephen, Jenaya, and the wonderful ladies at the front desk. They were so pleasant, so concerned about my level of comfortability, and as I’m sure you all want to hear most, were very fast and efficient. The two hours I was there flew right by…Jenaya and Dr. Ridge seriously killed it.

    I NEVER leave reviews, but they gave me such a good feeling I’m not even dreading having to go back to get the actual crown put onto my tooth. This Office is comprised of nothing but dedicated and amazing professionals, who truly go out of their way to make sure you feel taken care of (even if you’re in your own version of hell).”

    -Savannah S. 5 Stars on Google

    “Philly Dentistry has been AMAZING! Their staff has made my visits friendly, comfortable, and worry-free. I have been lucky to get to work with Dr. Ridge, Jenaya, Jessica, and Rach while figuring out a plan to get my teeth looking healthy and great again! They have made the anxieties of dentist visits disappear for an enjoyable experience. While completing the work I have the need they have been great in care and education to help give a better understanding of future care.  In addition, Rich has been a great financial/ insurance resource answering all my questions to make sure money stresses are non-existing! Kiya and Jess at the front desk are always warm, welcoming, and helpful with any scheduling needs, and make sure all my check-in information is where it needs to be! Together this Group makes my Dentistry Dream Team! Can’t wait for my next visit!”

    -Rocio C. 5 Stars on Google

    “Today was my first visit at the office. The ladies at the front desk are very kind and welcoming!  Dr. Ridge was very nice and explained my treatment plan very thoroughly. He also answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable and excited to move forward with treatment. Stephen Ruiz, the treatment coordinator, is funny and has a great personality! He thoroughly explained my financing options and answered all my questions.

    I love the fact that I don’t have to wait long for appointments. I can be seen within a week or two and those multiple appointments can be set on the day of your visit. Other offices make you wait until you come back to set the next appointment, which results in longer treatment times. I also was seen quickly and wasn’t sitting in the waiting room forever. Great music in the office as well. I’m very happy I found this office!”

    Dr. Cirka had the pleasure of being a guest speaker at the Private Dental Association conference meeting. During his speech, he broke down the secrets to his success in the dental industry. Philadelphia Dentistry is the largest dental practice in Philadelphia, but Dr. Cirka’s success didn’t come overnight. In this blog post, we will be talking about the key points Dr. Cirka made during his speech.

    1. “Figure out what your vision is.”

    The first key to success Dr. Cirka spoke about was how important it is to know what your vision looks like. Essentially, this means figuring out what your overall goal is, not only for the practice but as an owner. Ask yourself questions like, “Where do you see yourself long-term?” “Do you want to expand or stay small?” “What kind of specialty are you going to offer?” and many more questions digging into your aspirations. If these questions aren’t addressed, you could find yourself jumping into a life that isn’t exactly what you wanted, which would result in negative energy. Pinpointing your vision is essential to being successful.

    1. “Now that you have your vision, share it.”

    Once you know what you want your vision to be, you have to share it. People are not mind readers. You must make your vision as specific as possible to your staff to ensure everyone is on the same page. “If part of your vision includes having 500 Google reviews, you need to make that clear to your team,” Dr. Cirka explained. If your vision isn’t explicitly specified you will never be satisfied.

    1. “Communication is the #1 key.”

    Keeping good communication with your team and patients is the most important factor in success. To keep good communication with your team there’s a ton of different things you can do. Most importantly, creating an open environment for your team will allow the most communication. “Staff meetings are a must,” says Dr. Cirka. The staff meetings allow everyone to get together and talk about different things going on. If there is something we are lacking, we can bring it up. On the flip side, staff meetings are great to commend team members for a job well done. To keep good communication with patients, you have to go the extra mile. “Make personal phone calls to patients after they’ve completed a large case or have had anesthesia,” Dr. Cirka advised. Making these phone calls not only will show patients you care but will give the patient an opportunity to ask any further questions they may have forgotten to bring up. In addition to phone calls, writing personal postcards are great. “Writing a patient just to say hello and have a great time on vacation will do more than you think,” Dr. Cirka shared. When writing these postcards, it is important to never write about a sale or anything involving money. It shows that we care about our patients, we listen to our patients, and we are just reaching out to keep a good relationship.

    Millions of people suffer from bad breath. In most cases, this problem stems from the tongue and gums. Bad breath can cause you to feel embarrassed, but it is a more common problem than you think. We are here to give you some tips about how to prevent bad breath. We want you to feel confident!

    images

    1. Make sure you are brushing.

    It is imperative to make sure you are brushing your teeth at least twice a day! You should brush in the morning when you wake up, and at night time before you go to bed. By doing this, you are ensuring the proper removal of plaque and debris stuck in your teeth. Getting rid of the yucky stuff will make it difficult for bacteria to grow in your mouth, which would eliminate bad breath.

    1. Floss daily.

    Flossing on a daily basis will remove the debris that your toothbrush can’t reach. Now, the toothbrush does a great job, but sometimes it just needs some extra help with floss. Flossing gets into the deeper parts of your smile, allowing you to remove all leftover debris.

    1. Don’t forget the tongue.

    Most people brush their teeth and think they are done. However, your teeth are only one part of your mouth. Scraping or brushing your tongue will remove any built-up residue that is hiding in the taste buds. Don’t forget to brush your tongue!

    1. Rinse your mouth.

    Remember that if a dental issue is a reason for constant bad breath, a mouth wash will just cover the smell and not fix it. However, it does help to use a mouth wash when completing your oral hygiene routine. Mouth wash gives you an instant fresh breath smell!

    1. Visit your dentist.

    You need to be visiting your dentist twice a year to maintain good oral health. When dealing with chronic bad breath, you should visit your dentist first to rule out any other dental issues. It is better to catch things early! Give us a call at (215) 568-6222 to schedule your FREE new patient consultation.

    It’s a brand-new year, which is the perfect time to reinvent yourself. Do you want to quit your bad smoking habit? If this sounds like you, then keep reading. In this article, we will be talking about dental hygiene tips for smokers that can help you turn your smoker’s teeth into healthy teeth!

    missing-teeth

    1. Stop smoking

    It might not be exactly what you want to hear, but this is something you need to do in order to get the best results for your teeth. Smoking causes a number of health problems, but a lot of time the effects it can have on your mouth are overlooked. When you are a smoker, you are twice as likely to get mouth infections compared to non-smokers. Additionally, as you know, smoking causes damage to your enamel and staining.

    1. See your dentist

    It is imperative for you to stay on top of your dental visits. Since being a smoker makes you more susceptible to oral health issues, you need to keep up with your bi-yearly dental visits. These visits are important because it will allow your dentist to scope out any issues earlier rather than later. These visits will also help possible staining and keeping your breath fresh.

    1. Brushing and flossing twice a day

    Brush and floss your teeth when you wake up in the morning and again before you go to sleep at night. By doing this, you are removing any debris that could wedge itself in your teeth throughout the day. Brushing and flossing at least twice a day is the rule of thumb, but if you can squeeze in brush and floss time after any meal, that would be ideal!

    1. Healthy eating

    Smoking isn’t the only thing that causes staining. Different foods and drinks cause teeth discoloration as well. To reduce the chance of staining, take up a healthy eating lifestyle. Eat and drink in moderation, but watch out for acidic treats like coffee, soda, and candy, as they can do the most damage.

    We want you to make 2021 the year you turn your smoker teeth into a brighter, healthier smile! Here at Philadelphia Dentistry, we will provide you with the best care and education to ensure that you optimize your oral health care. Check us out on social media to see all of our photos!

Let’s go through some of our favorite blog posts published this year, as they are timeless and always a good read!

    Oral and Mental Health

    When people think about their health it is normal to categorize it. We categorize our mental health with our feelings, our oral health with our mouth, our physical health with our body, etc. However, it is important to remember that all of these categories make up our overall health. They all work together to keep us healthy. Specifically, let’s dive into the correlation between our oral health and mental health…

    DIY Whitening vs. In-Office Whitening

Mostly everyone wants a nice white smile to give them better confidence in their everyday life. In this blog, you’ll learn the difference between DIY whitening and in-office whitening to decide which option is best for you…

    Celebrities with Veneers

    miley cyrus

    Not everyone is born with a perfect smile. We see all over the media celebrities who appear flawless. These celebrities seem to have it all, but that is far from the truth. It wasn’t until their dentists came and saved their teeth that they looked picture perfect. So, with the help of the right dentist, this means that you can have the same perfect smile that these celebrities have too. In this article, we will be diving into a list of celebrities who have gotten veneers. Some of these before and after comparisons will shock you…

    Why Get Invisalign?

    Invisalign is the modern way to straighten your teeth over those big metal embarrassing braces we all had as a kid or teenager. Invisalign’s custom-fitted, clear aligner trays are made specifically for you. Every 2-3 weeks you will receive a new set of trays until your treatment is finished and your teeth are perfect. Here are seven advantages for Invisalign over braces…

     Calling All Coffee Lovers

    It’s no secret that coffee means a lot to people. For some, having a morning coffee is the most important part of the day. The smells, warmth, and tastes that coffee releases are incomparable. I think it’s appropriate to say that most people value coffee as a necessity. Not to be a Debbie Downer, but coffee comes with a price. Teeth stains are the worst. The delicious drink can cause yellowing discolorations, so it is important to know how to prevent that. We are here to tell you that you can still enjoy your favorite drink AND keep your teeth healthy. Here are some ways you can prevent coffee from staining your smile…

    Christmas Tree With Baubles And Blurred Shiny Lights

    It’s the holiday season! Sometimes during the holidays, we shy away from our normal diet or self-care routine. That is completely normal as the holidays are a fun time to indulge with family and friends. However, it is important to still take care of ourselves. We are here to talk about some tips that will allow you to enjoy the holidays while still maintaining good health.

    Cravings

    When your mom makes her famous Jewish apple cakes, no one expects you to turn that down! All of our favorite dishes come out during the holidays and it is healthy to enjoy them. However, it is important to keep in mind the amount of sugar you are consuming. To ensure good oral health, try to floss and brush your teeth after enjoying holiday treats.

    Don’t Forget

    It can be easy to be forgetful in the midst of everything. It’s essential to brush your teeth when you wake up in the morning and before you go to bed. Especially if you have little ones, be sure to have them brush their teeth before running down the stairs on Christmas morning. They might be fussy and anxious to open presents, but maintaining their oral health will be worth it in the long run.

    Be Gentle

    Be careful with your teeth and remember that they are not to be used as tools. If you are having trouble opening a package, do not use your teeth to open it. If you can’t get a bottle open, do not use your teeth to open it. Save your teeth the torture and find a knife or bottle opener.

    Moderation

    Food oriented holidays such as Thanksgiving, Halloween, and Christmas keep us tempted with yummy treats. Try to remember that everything should be taken in moderation. Moderation when eating and drinking, paired with routinely oral care, will keep you on the right track. Regular dental visits are essential to a healthy smile. To book your dental checkup after the holidays, give us a call!

    If your smile is damaged or flawed, it is wise to consult with your dentist to find the right treatment plan for you. Whether it’s a chip, stain, or crowding issue, there’s always a way to fix it. At Philly Dentistry, we offer multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures. There is one treatment, in particular, that is the longest-lasting and will take your teeth from 0 to 100 in only 2 visits.

    watermarked veneers

    Porcelain veneers can fix any type of dental problem. This month, we are running a special too good to turn down. So, if you were on the fence about veneers, now is the time to jump on this incredible deal. We are offering $1,000 off 8 veneers! Now, let’s talk about some of the specific problems that veneers fix.

    Discolorations

    Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So many people start their breakfast off with a cup of coffee. Unfortunately, foods and drinks like coffee create stains on our teeth. As the years go on it is inevitable that these stains will only get worse. Fortunately, porcelain veneers can help you fight back against tooth discoloration. Porcelain veneers are resistant to stains and ensure protection against discoloration over time.

    Spacing

    Do you have gaps in your teeth that decrease your confidence? On the other hand, do you have crowded teeth that make you feel self-conscious? Both of these issues are typically thought to be fixed from braces. Braces or Invisalign can be great. However, they are not the fastest or best solution for everyone. In that case, consider porcelain veneers. They are proven to give your smile a complete makeover in just two dentist visits. You will look like you have been wearing braces for years after your veneers are delivered.

    Imperfections

    No one is perfect. Even our teeth aren’t perfect. Over time our teeth weaken and change. This is nothing to be ashamed or insecure about. However, this normal wear and tear can cause oral health issues such as cracks or chips. It’s important to get cracks and chips fixed so that bacteria don’t have the opportunity to create an infection. Porcelain veneers are a perfect remedy to fix your teeth’s appearance and health over the years.

    Life is too short to feel self-conscious. Give us a call and we will get you set up. Take advantage of our December Porcelain Veneer Special!
