If you are unhappy with your current smile, then you are most likely researching cosmetic dentistry procedures. At Philly Dentistry, we offer numerous cosmetic treatments to fix any problems you may be suffering with. Have you ever thought about getting porcelain veneers to fix your smile? During the whole month of March take advantage of our monthly special of buy 6 veneers and get 2 for free! That’s a saving of over $3,000! Here are the six most common signs that porcelain veneers are the right choice for you.

before & after

1. Do you have chipped, cracked or broken teeth?
There are a few options to fix problems like broken or chipped teeth. Porcelain veneers are a great option to fix this common dental problem. Our accomplished doctors will customize your veneers to match perfectly with your natural teeth to give you that perfect smile you’ve always wanted.

2. Are you unhappy with your smile?
If you’re reading this right now there’s a good chance, you’re unhappy with your smile. Whether it’s crooked, chipped, gap, or stained teeth to name a few common problems, our talented cosmetic dentists will get you smiling again! All you need to do to fix your smile is schedule a free new patient consultation and one of our doctors will give you an exam to see which cosmetic procedure would be best for your specific smile.

3. Do you have a gap or gaps between your teeth?
Having gaps big or small in between your teeth can leave you feeling embarrassed, while covering your mouth every time you smile. No one wants to feel that way and to fix these gaps you can choose to get porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers give you a natural looking smile that will make you proud to smile again. At your appointment our doctors will evaluate your smile to determine if veneers are the best option for you, instead of other treatments like tooth bonding and Invisalign to close your gaps.

4. Do you have extremely stained or discolored teeth?
Many patients try over-the-counter whitening methods without much success. Some patients report some slight changes in the whiteness of their teeth, but nothing too dramatic. When your teeth are extremely stained, sometimes even in-office professional whitening will not make much of a difference. For patients like this, we recommend porcelain veneers. Many patients get veneers for a whiter, more uniform smile to get completely rid of any type of stains.

5. Are your teeth misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped?
If you have some minor alignment issues with your teeth than veneers can resolve the problem easily. For more extreme alignment issues we recommend getting Invisalign to straighten your teeth. For patients who have uneven or irregularly shaped teeth, veneers can be the best option. Our doctors will work with you to customize the size, shape and color of your veneers to give you that smile you’ve always wanted.

6. Are your teeth worn down?
Over time your teeth can get worn down typically from teeth grinding or clenching, known as bruxism. When you grind or clench on a regular basis, the tops of your teeth can become flat and dull over time. This can result in more dental problems if not handled properly. For any patient who have worn down their teeth, porcelain veneers can restore the appearance of your teeth and provide more stability for your dental health.

So, give us a call at 215-568-6222 and schedule your free new patient consultation with one of our excellent doctors! With the most experience with veneers in Philadelphia, you won’t be disappointed. There’s a reason professional athletes, movie stars, musicians and many more trust us with their smile! We want to give you that perfect smile you have always dreamed about. Smile more with Philly Dentistry!

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.

LinkedIn Post

Here are seven advantages for Invisalign over braces.

1. Your clear aligners are so much less noticeable than traditional metal braces. Some people may not even notice you’re wearing them!

2. Unlike metal braces that are attached to your teeth, Invisalign trays can be removed whenever you want to eat or drink.

3. You can clean your teeth way easier with Invisalign, just simply remove the trays and brush and floss like you would normally do when you were not doing Invisalign.

4. There will be fewer appointments with visits to our Philly Dentistry office only every 4-6 weeks.

5. No food restrictions like you have with metal braces. You don’t need to worry about brackets coming off or getting loose and don’t worry about food being stuck between them.

6. Some people face metal allergies so if this happens to be you, Invisalign is the best choice for you because they’re metal-free.

7. Invisalign trays are more comfortable than metal brackets. I remember having metal braces cut the inside of my cheeks and gums and that was not fun. With Invisalign you don’t need to worry about any metal in your mouth at all. Your Invisalign trays will be smooth and comfortable for your specific smile.

If you believe Invisalign might be the best option for you give us a call at 215-568-6222 and we will set you up with a free new patient consultation. At this appointment our great doctors will determine if Invisalign is the best option for you. You can even get a free iTero scan, which allows you to see what your teeth will look like with Invisalign, before you even start your treatment.

Invisalign is the newest way of straightening your teeth without the hassle of metal braces and brackets. Invisalign on average takes less time than the old fashion braces and it costs less money as well. One of the best things about Invisalign is that they are removable retainers that you can hardly notice. When you decide to do Invisalign you are making a commitment because you will be wearing your clear aligners for the recommended time of 22 hours a day. It takes some getting used to, but is well worth it in the end. Here are 4 tips to help you with your first week of Invisalign.

invisalign

1. Treat your discomfort. When you wear your clear aligners at first, they can cause some discomfort. Your clear aligners are forcing your teeth into their ideal position. By doing this you may experience some pain in your teeth and jaw area. We recommend some chewing exercises a few times a day and every time you put your trays back in. This can help pain relief by acting as a massage effect for your gums, stimulating nutrient-rich blood flow to your mouth. The blood flow acts as a natural pain reliever.

2. Protect your tongue. The plastic edges of your aligners may aggravate you at first. Tongue sores are common in the early stages of your transformation. A great tip is to learn how to use dental wax to cover up any sharp edges or rough spots. Take a small pinch of wax, roll it up and place it on the area that is giving you problems. If it is still bothering you ask your dentist and they will be happy to help you get out of any discomfort.

3. Keep track of your daily wear time. It can be tough at first to adjust to your new lifestyle with your Invisalign trays, but it’s important to know how long you’re wearing your trays. You can extend your treatment if you don’t follow the dentists recommended time of wearing your trays 22 hours a day.

4. Keep your trays clean and clear. It’s easy to cheat when you’re in Invisalign. You can be drinking that coffee or enjoying a glass of white wine with your trays in. It isn’t the worst thing you can do, but if you make it a habit you can stain your teeth. When you notice your trays are getting a little funky looking you should clean them by lightly brushing them with your toothbrush or soaking them in water.

The most important thing with Invisalign is sticking to a routine. Use these tips when you start your Invisalign journey and then find what works best for your routine and stick with it until your treatment is finished. Good habits are crucial when relieving any Invisalign discomfort and achieving your perfect smile. If you are not happy with your smile and you think Invisalign can be the answer, give us a call at 215-568-6222 and we will be happy to give you a free new patient consultation to see if Invisalign is the best option for you. While you’re here we will even do a free iTero Invisalign scan so you can see what your teeth will look like after Invisalign, before you even start the process! Also take advantage of our January monthly special, free Apple AirPods and free teeth whitening with your purchase of Invisalign! It’s the start of a new year which means new beginnings so, get that smile you always wanted with Invisalign.

Invisalign Day One day $1000 savings

1. You will become healthier using Invisalign. Heath problems can occur if you have badly positioned teeth. When you have crooked teeth, it causes more food and bacteria to get trapped in between your teeth resulting in more cavities, gum disease, and infections. Patients with misaligned teeth will sometimes grind their teeth at night due to a poor bite, resulting in sensitivity and sore muscles. Studies by the ADA (American Dental Association) proved that oral infections can lead to more serious conditions, such as, diabetes, heart disease, pneumonia, and even a stroke. Which leads me to benefit number two.

2. Easy to clean. One of the most challenging things to do when you have braces is to clean in between the metal brackets and wires. With Invisalign you simply take out your trays to brush and floss as you normally would. This prevents plaque buildup that could result in gum disease, tooth decay, or infections.

3. It’s practically invisible! No more huge metal brackets, wires, and rubber bands sticking out of your mouth. Invisalign is made from clear plastic aligners so they are almost impossible to notice. You don’t have to feel embarrassed anymore to get braces because most people won’t even know you have them on. They’re easily removeable and extremely comfortable to wear. Just ask some of our patients.

4. It’s fast. Invisalign is quicker than traditional braces so you’ll get that smile you always wanted much faster. Every Invisalign case is different, but on average adult cases typically last 12 months.

5. It’s affordable. Invisalign compared to traditional metal braces cost less. With our easy finance options, it makes Invisalign that much easier to get without putting a dent in your pockets and with this one day offer of $1000 off Invisalign, this is our best offer ever!

6. In office scan. At Philadelphia Dentistry we can now scan patients right in our center city office with the iTero Scanner. This allows us to take state-of-the-art digital impressions without using that messy putty in your mouth to take a physical impression. With this technology it is sent instantly to the Invisalign lab and allows our office to start treatment 2-3 weeks faster than other Philadelphia dentists!

So, what are you waiting for? If you want that beautiful smile that is affordable, comfortable, and fast give us a call today 215-568-6222 to schedule an appointment with our amazing doctors. Remember not only are straight teeth beautiful they are healthy too.

Are you unhappy with the straightness of your teeth? Are you thinking about orthodontics to treat your misaligned teeth? A recent study prepared for Invisalign by Harris Poll stats that almost 80% of patients who finished orthodontic treatment felt that by straightening their teeth was one of the most life-changing decisions that they ever made. For most people the main reason to straighten their teeth is for improving their appearance and gaining more confidence, but there are also more significant health benefits that most people don’t realize. Here are the top 3 health benefits for straight teeth.

EB85A714-3496-43E2-B06D-D8141FFE38F9_pub_th

1. Straight teeth are easier to clean. When you brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day it is easier to clean your teeth when they are straight rather than crooked or crowded. When your teeth are crowded it’s more likely for bacteria to get caught in between and cause cavities. If the bacteria that builds between your teeth is not removed daily then plaque builds up in the gum line and can cause gum disease. Signs of gum disease are red, swollen or bleeding gums, receding gums, bad breath and eventual tooth loss. This is why it’s so important to maintain healthy oral hygiene habits.

2. Straight teeth create healthy bites. The purpose of getting orthodontics according to the ADA is to create a healthy bite. When your teeth don’t align properly it can cause oral health problems such as; tooth decay, impaired speech and chewing, uneven wear to the tooth enamel, jaw pain, chips or cracking of your teeth. At your next appointment ask your dentist how they can save your smile from any premature wear and prevent any future dental issues.

3. Straight teeth and a healthy smile contribute to your overall health. There are two main areas that contribute to your overall health and that’s your mental health and your physical health. When it comes to your mental health happiness is key and smiling makes you happy! When you have a beautiful straight smile, you’re more likely to smile which in turn will make you happier. By straightening your teeth, you will be more confident in your every day life. The next area is your physical health. Your oral health impacts your overall health. When you have bad oral health, it can lead to gum disease and allow oral bacteria to enter your bloodstream. Gum disease can also lead to heart disease, diabetes and other systemic diseases.

Now that you know the importance of having straight teeth it’s time to ask your dentist or orthodontist about Invisalign. Invisalign is the new faster way of straightening your teeth without the embarrassment of having bulky metal braces in your mouth. Give us a call today to set up a free new patient consultation and find out how Philly Dentistry can help your overall health and confidence 215-568-6222.

invisible braces invisalign pixYou want straight, healthy teeth? Here’s how to understand exactly what to ask your dentist!

When choosing a dentist or orthodontist to complete your clear aligner therapy, you want to make sure that they have a lot of experience with Invisalign. The more cases that have been completed by the dentist, the more knowledge the dentist has and the better they can help you and more predictably treat your case. When visiting a dentist and considering Invisalign, make sure to ask the following questions during your consultation:

  1. How long have you been certified as an Invisalign Dentist?
  2. How many Invisalign cases have you done? How many in the last 6 months? Do you have any awards from Invisalign?
  3. Can I see some before and after pictures of some of your Invisalign Patients that have the same or a similar situation as me?
  4. Are there any alternatives for my smile? Do you offer those alternatives?
  5. How many Invisalign patients did you see this week? This number should be at least 5 for a practice that is well-equipped and knowledgeable on Invisalign.
  6. Do you offer any sort of warranty or guarantee? In our office we stand behind our work 100%. We want you to be happy with the level of care, service, and dentistry that we provide and will work with you until you are satisfied.
  7. Is the dentist passionate about Invisalign? The enthusiasm a dentist and the staff have for his/her work will be evident throughout your entire consultation. Don’t settle for anything less than what you deserve. Go with your gut instinct.
  8. Are your fees comprehensive or should I expect other additional costs?
  9. Are retainers included at the end?
  10. Do your fees include X-rays that are necessary to be taken?
  11. Are refinement trays (extra trays to verify the teeth are straight) included or do I have to pay additional fees at the end?
  12. Am I a candidate for Invisalign Express treatment through Invisalign 5 or Invisalign 10 or am I a comprehensive case?
  13. Will I need to have attachment buttons placed on the front teeth? How noticeable will they be?
  14. Do you anticipate there to be a lot of Interproximal Reduction (slimming between the teeth) for my situation and will this increase my risk for cavities? Interproximal reduction is when the dentist creates space to help the teeth move. This is not painful and is necessary in many cases.

Make sure to do your research before choosing your provider. You should always feel comfortable in a dental setting and understand each step of the process.

During the whole month of July take advantage of our monthly special of $500 off Invisalign! Invisalign is the new way to straighten your teeth without the embarrassment of having metal braces. With Invisalign you have clear aligner trays that snap on and off of your teeth allowing you eat and drink whatever you please, when you please. The trays are made from a clear plastic- like material that most people hardly notice. Depending on how much your teeth needs to be straighten, each tray is worn up to 1-2 weeks. Each tray will slightly move your teeth closer to the end goal of a perfect smile. Before you decide to get Invisalign we will give you a free iTero Invisalign scan in our Center City, Philadelphia office. This scan will show what your smile will look like after Invisalign, before you even start your treatment.

Another common questions our patients ask is how long will Invisalign take? This is a case by case situation and will be different for each patient depending on how much straightening their teeth need and how good they are about wearing their trays for at least 22 hours a day. On average, a common patient can except the case to last a year. If your case includes bite correction then you can expect it to take a little longer than average.
You’re probably thinking now, what is it like wearing the trays? At first like anything new it takes some time to get used to. For the first week you can assume that you will speak with a little bit of a lisp. This is common for most patients because they are just getting used to wearing the trays and talking with them. In no time you’ll be used to wearing them and at times probably forget you have them in.

Todd L. Invisalign

When you are done with Invisalign and your teeth are looking perfect, your doctor will remove any attachments on your teeth and do another scan. After the scan they will make a clear removable retainer for you to wear at night only. This retainer will ensure that your teeth stay straight, as long as you continue to wear it each night. The great thing about Invisalign is that you are in charge of your success. The more compliant you are with your Invisalign treatment the faster you will finish and your results will look great!

Give us a call today and come in for a free new patient consultation. Don’t forget when you call to mention that you would like to get a complimentary iTero Invisalign scan and see for yourself just how perfect your teeth could be. 215-568-6222 and don’t forget to follow us on Instagram & Facebook to stay up to date on our office!

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. 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 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.” –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.

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.

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.

Adultmale-composite_12_8_2017_9_05_44_AM

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.
