    This month we are offering a deal that is every coffee lover’s dream. We get it, coffee gets you through the day. We want you to enjoy your favorite drink! However, do you know how coffee affects your teeth? Stains, stains, stains! Over time, your smile will become more and more stained due to enjoying drinks with color to them. Let us take your worries away and take advantage of our September special, Buy 8 Veneers and get a FREE Keurig K-Supreme® Welcome Bundle!

    This sounds too good to be true.

    You might be asking yourself, “Wait a minute, I thought coffee stains my teeth. Why would my dentist be giving away a coffee bundle?” Porcelain veneers do not stain. In fact, when you are planning your porcelain veneer treatment with our team, you will have the opportunity to pick the exact shade you want your veneers to be. Veneers are 100% customizable to whatever you want! You pick the shade, size, and shape. So, with this special, you will be able to enjoy as much coffee as you like all while keeping a perfect smile!

    Well, what else?

    What other benefits do veneers have? It’s fast. An entire smile can be changed in just 2 visits to our office! Crooked teeth can be corrected to provide a more appealing smile. Gaps between teeth can be easily closed with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can strengthen natural teeth weakened by old or broken fillings. Veneers are very strong as they can resist years of wear without being affected. Veneers never stain. Your smile will remain that pearly white color despite years of enjoying all of your favorite foods and drinks.

    Let’s do it!

    To schedule a free consultation, give us a call at (215) 568-6222. During your consultation, the doctors will examine your mouth and come up with a treatment plan that works for you. We are looking forward to seeing you soon and bringing all your smile goals to life!

    Tiktokers are shaving their teeth?! The app, TikTok, has been filled with users acting as DIY dentists. Tiktokers have become fixated on shaving their teeth to get their desired length. People are using metal nail files to shave down their enamel. The whole thing is super crazy and not safe for your teeth. ​If you try to file or shave your teeth at home, you can damage the enamel on your teeth, which can lead to a whole plethora of other problems.

    People often cut their own hair, do crazy makeup looks, etc. However, your hair grows back, and makeup is removable. Once you shave your teeth, they do not grow back. ​You can’t regrow tooth enamel, so any damage is irreversible.

    Possible outcomes from shaving your teeth on your own:

    – Need of a veneer or crown to fix over shaved teeth

    – Severe sensitivity/pain

    Nerve damage

    – Possible root canals or extractions

    Bleeding teeth

    This is why it is super important to leave your dental care to your dentist. Click on the photo below to view a video about the trend.

    We have the world’s best patients. Our office has been open for over 18 years and throughout time, our patients have chosen to come back to us again and again. We take pride in making our patients feel at home in our office. In return, our patients have shared their experiences throughout the years on review 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 kind words. So much so, that our team starts every morning by reading a new review. Hearing our patient’s feedback gets our team pumped for the next day! In this blog, we wanted to highlight some of our favorite reviews. These reviews, in particular, brought an ear to ear smile to all of our staff’s faces. 

    Brandon S. Review

    “Philadelphia Dentistry reconceptualizes and resets the paradigm for the holistic practice of dentistry. First and foremost, they operate with an unprecedented level of professionalism, subject matter expertise, compassion, and dedication to their clients’ needs. They put the client first and consciously try to seek an understanding of any issues, fears, or concerns their clients have so they can make them feel as comfortable as possible throughout the entirety of their visit. Further, their clarity of explanation provides the client with education concerning proper dental hygiene and a vision for maintaining healthy practices. They have not only built an environment that is friendly, energetic, comfortable, positive, and beautiful, but they celebrate diversity – of staff, clients, and perspective — since they place love central to their core values.

    What I love most about the office (besides their dental expertise and care they provide-) is how they genuinely attempt to create a lasting relationship with the client – they seek understanding of who you are, what you do, and create bonds of friendship that makes you feel like you are an extension of their dental family. Trust me when I say, not only are you going to receive the highest quality of service at this practice, but you are missing out if you don’t make this the home for all your dental needs!” -Brandon S.

    Nikki B. Review

    “I chose this office after my husband had a pleasant experience. I also had a great experience. All of the staff were welcoming and helpful. I enjoyed chatting with my hygienist, Alyssa! What stood out to me in terms of care was: they did an oral cancer exam. I have only had one other doctor in my life do this for me! This was also the most educational office I have ever been to where they show you exactly what is happening to your teeth and why. Then they have individualized recommendations for improving your oral health. I was impressed by the knowledge of Alyssa, she went over everything the doctor covered with me, so I got it twice!” -Nikki B.

    Billy C. Review

    “I’ve been a patient for over 2 years now. Always quick and efficient with their work. I had a filling crack in May and was able to get in the very next business day (a Friday). I had the filling replaced that following Monday by Dr. Ridge and the assistant. After fixing that, I realized I would be away for my cleaning date in August. They bumped me up this week with my go-to hygienist Jen. Jen did my Zoom well over a year ago which whitened my teeth 4 shades and the trays and whitening provided have kept my pearly whites nice and bright with light maintenance. Everyone at the office is friendly, helpful, and informative and they handle COVID-19 procedures with ease and care.” -Billy C.

    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.

    Do you love to laugh? We all know the saying, “Laughter is the best medicine.” Laughing is scientifically proven to benefit our mental health. It feels good to be surrounded by loved ones, hear a funny story, or to laugh all night. Another saying, “Laughter is contagious,” also holds. If you hear people laughing, you will at least smile, too. Our brains naturally respond to the sound of laughter and prepare our muscles to join in on the fun too.

    Laughing can improve your physical wellbeing by boosting your immunity, bringing down pressure hormones, diminishing pain, and loosening up your muscles. Also, laughing improves the function of veins and enhances your bloodstream. So, we can all agree laughter is one of the greatest joys in life? For most, yes. For others, not so much. People who are insecure with their smiles result in feeling self-conscious while laughing. When we laugh, our mouths are exposed. For someone with smile insecurities, this can be a nightmare, as it would affect someone emotionally and take tolls on interpersonal relationships.

    At Philly Dentistry, we don’t want any of our patients living in a nightmare. We want people to feel confident with their smiles and to live a healthy life. We are smile makeover professionals and can take any ‘OK’ smile and transform it into an amazing smile!

    Let the results speak for themselves. Our patients come into our office with all kinds of dental concerns. The great thing about our practice is that every visit is customized to meet the needs of each patient. Our number one priority is to give you your confidence back, so you can live a happy life full of laughter.

    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.

    “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!”

    This crazy year is finally coming to an end. There were many highs and some lows, but all in all 2020 gave us the privilege of getting our city healthy. In addition to getting our patients healthy, we enjoyed educating patients on good oral health care. 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

    porcelain-veneers-west-pennant-hills

    Nowadays, there are so many whitening options whether it’s doing it yourself whitening or 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

     coffee picture

    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…

    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!
