Are you too embarrassed to smile because of your teeth? Are they crooked and misaligned? Well, there is a solution and it’s called Invisalign. During the whole month of April take full advantage of our monthly special of $500 off your Invisalign treatment along with free teeth whitening custom bleach trays! Invisalign is the best way to straighten your teeth without the hassle of those old fashion metal braces. Invisalign has clear aligners that align your teeth perfectly straight so you have a healthy bite and a beautiful smile. Here’s what our patients had to say about their Invisalign experience with our office.

“If you are thinking about getting Invisalign then get it at Philadelphia Dentistry. These folks are awesome. Super friendly, professional, and the results were amazing. I highly recommend them. Don’t even think about going to look anywhere else. Just do it. YOU will not be disappointed.” –Jeff S.

“This entire practice is phenomenal, from the front desk staff, to the hygienists, and of course Dr. Meier! If you would’ve told me five years ago that I’d be ENJOYING coming to the dentist, I would think you were crazy! But this whole practice, Eva, Malikah, Dani, and Dr. Meier especially, are the most caring, gentle, and knowledgeable people in the industry. I trust them implicitly and have never been happier with my smile and the health of my teeth. After several years as a dental patient here, I finally took the plunge and began Invisalign. I was afraid it would hurt, that it would be a pain in the neck socially, and that it would be unaffordable. Now that I’ve finished Invisilign I can say NONE of those things were an issue! A 3/10 in discomfort at most, socially was NBD at all, and with CareCredit I’m easily able to pay it off monthly. If you’re considering Invisalign, you must see Dr. Meier! Your only regret is that you hadn’t done it sooner!!” –Robyn B.

“I love love love this place. They are so welcoming and warm. They made me feel comfortable about getting Invisalign. The process was easy. I would recommend them any day.” –Rashida S.

“I have been going here for about 10 years. I have always been very, very happy with the service, friendliness and expertise. I’m finishing up my Invisalign, and things have gone extremely well with it.” Lynn R.

Is there an age limit on getting healthy straight teeth? A very common question our patients ask our staff is, “am I too old for Invisalign?” Some patients even said they never thought to bring Invisalign up at their appointment because they assumed they were too old to get it. If you never had braces when you were younger and now you think it may be too late to get them, have no fear! If you have healthy teeth there is NO age limit on getting Invisalign.

In fact, getting Invisalign to straighten your teeth benefits anyone at any age. Straight teeth are healthy teeth and healthy teeth never go out of style. Being in your 40s, 50s, and even 60s and wanting braces doesn’t seem very appealing to anyone, but with Invisalign your clear aligner trays are practically invisible. You can have the smile you’ve always dreamed of with Invisalign!

The Invisalign process starts with one of our great providers giving you an Invisalign scan with the iTero scanner. This scan will show you what your teeth will look like after Invisalign, before you even start your procedure. By having this scanner in our office, we can start your treatment sooner than any dental office in Philadelphia.

Every patient is a little bit different depending on how much straightening needs to be done. However, our excellent doctors and providers will work with you and let you know exactly what time frame you can except with your Invisalign treatment. Our goal at Philly Dentistry is to help you be more confident in your smile at any age.

Invisalign is affordable for all ages. It’s an investment in your smile, confidence, health and happiness. At Philadelphia Dentistry we are an Invisalign Gold+ Provider which means we have done the most Invisalign cases in Philadelphia. Since we have such great experience you can end up paying $1,500 to $2,000 less than what most orthodontists charge for the same exact treatment! We offer an all-inclusive cost which means you won’t have any surprises with additional charges like most other offices do. There are many different ways to pay for your treatment at Philly Dentistry. We have flexible payment plans including CareCredit and GreenSky to help you make Invisalign a reality for you.

Don’t hesitate any longer, give us a call today at 215-568-6222 and we can see if Invisalign is the right choice for you. As a new patient you’ll receive a free exam and x-rays along with a free Invisalign scan to see if Invisalign is the best option for your specific smile.

At Philadelphia Dentistry we are proud to say we are an Invisalign Gold+ Provider, which means we do a great amount of Invisalign cases each year. We are the largest dentistry in Philadelphia and we do the most Invisalign cases than any other dental office. By doing the most cases our doctors have the most experience when it comes to Invisalign. Take advantage of our office deal and take $500 off your Invisalign treatment. There are many reasons to get Invisalign, but here are few of the most important reasons Invisalign is the best new way to straighten your teeth.

The main reason orthodontics was invited was to give you a good bite and that is exactly what Invisalign will do for you. Invisalign’s goal is to improve your oral health so you don’t live with any pain or problems. By doing Invisalign you’ll improve your overall health along with creating a beautiful straight smile.

Invisalign can fix any jaw or neck pain you may be dealing with. Patients that are affected by grinding their teeth suffer with jaw and neck pain. By wearing the Invisalign aligners over the course of your treatment is a great way for patients to deprogram the muscles involved in grinding their teeth and relieve any symptoms.

When your teeth are straight, they are easier to clean. So, when your teeth are properly aligned from your Invisalign treatment you will get a better clean when you brush daily and go to your routine check- ups at Philly Dentistry. When your teeth are crowded, bacteria will get in-between your teeth and will be harder to remove which can lead to cavities and other dental problems. Remember straight teeth equals healthy teeth!

Invisalign aligners can double as a protective gear that you can wear the rest of your life. By wearing your aligners, you can prevent any grinding at night. Invisalign aligners can also be worn during any sporting events to protect your teeth from any accidents. Invisalign not only straightens your teeth for your overall health, it also gives you that beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. When you do Invisalign with us at Philly Dentistry we give you complementary custom-made bleach trays to whiten your smile whenever you want in the comfort of your own home. There’s no better time than now to get that perfect smile. Give us a call today to schedule your free new patient consultation and see if Invisalign is the best option for you. 215-568-6222.

From whitening your teeth to getting brand new veneers, there is something for everyone and our great doctors will evaluate your smile to let you know what the best option is specifically for you.

One of the most popular cosmetic treatments at our dentistry is teeth whitening. We offer two whitening treatments which are both quick and easy to do. The first option is custom-made bleach whitening trays. These trays are custom-made so that they fit perfectly to your teeth. The great thing about your bleach trays is that you can use them in the comfort of your own home. Just apply the bleaching gel for about ten minutes a day for ten days and your teeth can become up to six shades whiter. This option is great for people that have tooth sensitivity. The next whitening option is ZOOM! Whitening. This option is great for someone who wants their teeth whitened fast.

If you want to completely change your smile in just two visits, then porcelain veneers are the best option for you. Porcelain veneers can just about fix anything that is wrong with your smile. Stains, chips, crowding, gaps, short teeth, you name it and veneers will give you the best smile makeover. Our talented doctors will pick the best veneers that fit perfectly with your smile so that they look natural. Porcelain veneers are extremely strong and can last up to decades as long as you properly take care of them. Get that perfect smile you always wanted and see how a smile makeover could change your life.

Nowadays, people are embarrassed to get those old fashion metal braces, especially if you’re an adult. There is a solution now and it’s called Invisalign. Invisalign does the same thing metal braces will do, but on average in half the time. The best part is nobody will notice you have them in because of their clear aligners that shift your teeth into a straight beautiful smile.

Very similar to porcelain veneers, Cerinate Lumineers have the same results. Lumineers are different from veneers by the way the teeth are prepared. With Lumineers there is very little prep required because there is no need to sand away any tooth enamel like with veneers. Lumineers are a very thin layer of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your tooth and are made in any size, color, and shape that you want, which will give you an all-natural perfect looking smile.

Don’t wait any longer to have that perfect smile. Life is too short to not be completely happy with yourself. So, if there is something small or something big you want to change about your smile Philadelphia Dentistry is the best choice for any cosmetic or general dentist need. Give us a call at 215-568-6222 for a free new patient consultation and see how we can change your life!

25005138_152349512076052_4777900595652591616_nDo you have misaligned teeth? Are you too embarrassed to get those old fashion metal braces? Well, there is a solution for you and it’s called Invisalign. Often times, people ask how long does this treatment take? It is different for just about everyone because it is based on how much your teeth need to be shifted and how attentive you are to following directions and wearing your trays. As a patient of Invisalign you must be willing to commit and trust the process to achieve the best results.

The time that it takes you to complete your Invisalign treatment is almost cut in half compared to the old fashion metal braces. On average, most patients complete their treatment within a year, sometimes less.

When you decide to choose Invisalign to correct your smile, what you can expect from the first appointment, which is called the “records” appointment is for it to last about 50 minutes. At this appointment you will get detailed scans from our iTero Invisalign Outcome Simulator. This scan will be able to show you what your teeth will look like after your Invisalign treatment is finished…before you even start! Also, x-rays of your teeth will be taken during this appointment so that your Invisalign trays are customized perfectly just for you. Your next appointment will be in about 3 weeks from this initial visit.

When you come back in 3 weeks this appointment will last about 1 hour. At this appointment you will get your first set of Invisalign trays and one of our excellent doctors and dental assistants will show you how to properly insert and remove them, so no damage is done to your teeth. Attachments will then be placed on your teeth so that they fit well and are able to move properly. After this appointment you will then be seeing one of our accomplished doctors every 6 to 8 weeks to get your next set of trays.

Every 6 to 8 weeks when you come back to receive your next set of trays these visits will only last about 20 to 30 minutes. During this appointment the doctor will make sure your teeth are shifting as planned. If anything needs to be adjusted the doctors will make correction so that you are getting the best Invisalign treatment on the East Coast.

Some rules of time with Invisalign so that you are making the most of your treatment is that they should be worn for at least 22 hours a day. You may take out your trays when you eat, brush and floss your teeth.

Each of your trays should be worn for at least a 2-week period or directed otherwise by your doctor. Your set of trays need around 150-300 hours of wear so that your teeth can move and settle before moving to your next set of trays. By following these guidelines, you will utilize the most from your Invisalign treatment and achieve the best results. During the whole month of October take $500 off your Invisalign treatment plus free whitening and get that smile you’ve always wanted. Call Philly Dentistry today at 215-568-6222.

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.
veneers & whitening

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.

Give us a call today to schedule a free new patient consultation and see if you’re a candidate for Invisalign. While you’re here you can use our Invisalign Outcome Simulator to see what your smile will look like after Invisalign, before you even start your treatment! Call today 215-568-6222.
