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!

Everyone is unique in the sense that we all have different styles and features. Whether we realize it or not, we make efforts to flatter ourselves. Haircuts can be cut to frame our face. Makeup can be used to contour our bone structure. We dress to complement our body’s curves. It’s human nature to desire being seen in the best light. These fashion/beauty tricks are as old as your great-grandmother’s grandmother, yet they are still relevant across the world. With all these tricks in mind, does it make you wonder if your smile complements your facial features?

If you are, then keep reading. When considering cosmetic dentistry, there are key factors to keep in mind. For instance, if you have a round face, you know that long layered hairstyles look best on you. Smiles have similar guidelines. If your face is smaller, it wouldn’t be flattering to get long, square-shaped veneers. That style can come off as too dominant and could throw off your facial proportions. If your face is round, you should go for those longer veneers, as they would create a slimming effect to your face. If your face is thin, you want to create a broader smile effect. You would avoid thin, long teeth, as they will only make your face look longer and thinner. Lastly, if your face is square-shaped, rounded teeth will help soften your smile.

Designing your smile is based on your personal preferences and what you want others to see. “When I sit down with a patient interested in cosmetic dentistry, I always ask them what their smile goals are,” Dr. Evan Ridge explained. Our doctors want the very best for our patients and for them to be 100% satisfied. That is why we value our patient’s wants and needs. With the help of our amazing doctors, we can transform your ‘OK’ smile into your dream smile.

Do you find yourself constantly smirking in photos because you don’t want to show your teeth? Are you not 100% happy with what you see in the mirror? You might be a good candidate for a Smile Makeover. What is a Smile Makeover? A Smile Makeover is a dental procedure that works to give you a healthier and more attractive smile. Say goodbye to all of your dental insecurities.

What’s so important about a smile?

Naturally, every human feels a sensation of positivity when they see others around them smile. Smiles make us feel comfortable. Smiling can also boost our own health. Studies show that simply smiling can boost moods, lower stress, and possibly prolong your life. Therefore, smiles are good for everyone!

What exactly do Smile Makeovers fix?

Smile Makeovers fix aesthetic issues and function issues. For instance, if your teeth are dull, chipped, worn, oddly shaped, or cracked, a smile makeover can fix that. Those are all aesthetic issues that can cause low confidence. You shouldn’t let your insecurities get the best of you though, especially when there are ways to fight back. If you are experiencing pain, tooth loss, decay, or infection, a smile makeover can fix that too. There is no reason anyone shouldn’t be able to go about daily tasks without any pain or issues. That’s where a smile makeover can come to the rescue.

Gain back your confidence.

Having problems with your teeth is the worst, especially if you are feeling discomfort. It’s time to stop overthinking pictures. The days of low self-confidence are over. It is now your time to take control and become confident again.

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!

Veneers are a very common dental procedure that can fix just about any dental problem you’re having. They are used to enhance someone’s smile so they are more confident with their appearance and of course so that they are healthy. If you have any dental problems such as, discoloration, fractures, chips, alignment issues and the list goes on you should continue reading this.

What are porcelain veneers? They are a thin layer of porcelain shaped tooth that is extremely strong and can last up to 20 years. Our trusted labs can create custom-made porcelain veneers to match your specific smile so that your veneers look and feel natural.

At Philadelphia Dentistry it takes only two appointments with us to change your smile and confidence completely. Our dentist will clean the tooth and determine the correct shade color for the veneer or veneers. Our dentist will then remove a very small amount of the enamel of the tooth so there is room to place the veneer on the tooth. After this an impression of the tooth will be made from our amazing laboratory and we will then place a temporary veneer on the tooth or teeth until the actual veneers are back from the lab. After we receive your custom-made veneers from the lab one of our dentists will remove the temporary veneers. The teeth are then cleaned with pumice and water. After that, the veneer is etched, rinsed thoroughly with water and air dried. Next, adhesive is placed on the preparation and then the cement and veneers are placed for exact fit and contour. Once that happens, a special light is cured for 60 seconds on all the surfaces so it attaches to the tooth structure. Finally, your dentist will make sure everything is perfect for you by removing any excess material and polish the margins of the veneers. We usually will schedule a follow up visit after this to check for comfort because a comfortable veneer is a lifelong veneer.

Taking care of your veneers are just like taking care of your natural teeth. So, make sure you are brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. It’s very important to see your dentist every 6 months for your regular cleanings and check-up to make sure that everything is healthy. By doing this you are ensuring that your veneers will last a very long time. Keep in mind that veneers will need to be replaced at some point in your life, no matter how well you take care of them. But with the proper oral care you will make sure that they last the maximum amount.

If you are considering porcelain veneers and you are not sure if they’re the right option for you then give us a call at 215-568-6222. We’ll give you a free new patient consultation and one of our amazing doctors will evaluate your smile to let you know what they think the best option is specially for you.

When you have teeth that are damaged or cosmetically flawed in more ways than one, the most effective and significant thing you can do is visit your dentist to find out what the best options are specially for your smile.

Jaelen Strong Veneers

Whether it’s a chip, stain, or not straight enough there’s always an option for correct your smile. At Philadelphia Dentistry we offer many different cosmetic procedures to correct any smile. The most effective procedure would be dental veneers. With porcelain veneers if you have any type of dental problem our amazing doctors will give you that smile you always wanted and deserve! The veneers are just about as thin as a contact lens, but extremely strong and durable and can last up to 25 years with the proper care by visiting your dentist every 6 months for your cleaning and checkup. Here are some specific problems and how porcelain veneers can hide these imperfections. During the whole month of December take advantage of our monthly special of $1000 off a set of 8 veneers!

Stains. Almost everyone you know can’t start their day off without at least one cup of coffee or you may enjoy some red wine with your meal every now and then for dinner. Whatever it may be you can’t resist it and it will eventually catch up to staining your teeth. The whiteness of your teeth will eventually fade as you age along with a host of other reasons such as, poor oral hygiene and even health complications to certain prescription medications. With porcelain veneers you don’t have to worry about any stains because the veneer itself can repel stains for years.

Gaps. If you have gaps between your teeth there are many ways to fix it like braces and bonding, but if you want the greatest results in the quickest time than porcelain veneers are your best option. Many times, people with gaps between their teeth are embarrassed to smile and are left covering their mouth every time they laugh. Nobody should have to feel this way. The same thing with people who have minor crooked or overlapping teeth. Everyone thinks braces are the best options for those cases and sometimes that’s right, but not always. Veneers are often times considered instant orthodontics. They hide spaces between teeth, as well as crooked teeth in just two visits to our office. When the procedure is finished it will look like you have been wearing braces for years with your perfect smile.

Imperfections. Nobody is perfect and unfortunately your teeth are no exception. Your teeth may be strong and pretty close to perfect when you’re young, but after years and years of wear and tear your teeth can start to look pretty imperfect. Over the years you’ll experience little cracks and chips because your tooth enamel isn’t as strong as it used to be. This can open the doors for harmful bacteria to get into those cracks and chips and cause cavities. Porcelain veneers hide as well as protect damaged teeth so your smile is safe and strong for years to come.

If you are too embarrassed to smile or are not completely happy with your smile, it’s time for a change. Give us a call at 215-568-6222 or email us at info@phillydentistry.com and we will set up a free new patient consultation to see if porcelain veneers are the right option for you. Life’s too short to be unhappy with your smile, get the confidence you deserve with porcelain veneers.

Often times patients will ask what is the best way for them to restore their smile into the smile they always wanted and the answer is typically porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can correct just about any dental problem you have. Whether it’s misaligned teeth, gaps, stains or spots, veneers will fix them while maintaining that natural look. You may have some questions about porcelain veneers and in this blog, I will answer the most common questions patients have.

veneers & whitening

First, what are porcelain veneers? Veneers are a thin (about the size of a contact lens) tooth- colored porcelain shell that is perfectly crafted to look like your natural teeth and bonded to cover the front of your tooth or teeth. Porcelain veneers are often times used as a different method to a crown and can be a better option if the underlying tooth is strong and healthy.

When are veneers best used? Veneers are best used for dental problems such as, chipped, misshaped, stained, or misaligned teeth and the list goes on. They are especially great if the tooth or teeth that are having problems are the visible or front teeth.

How long does the whole process take? At Philly Dentistry you can expect the whole process to be only two visits. The first visit we will discuss with you the type of veneers you would like and which look best for your natural smile. We will then take impressions to send to our trusted lab so they can craft your perfect smile. When you come back for your second visit one of our amazing doctors will deliver the veneers for you and give you that smile you always wanted.

The process of porcelain veneers starts by removing a very thin layer of your tooth enamel to prepare, so that it allows room for the veneer to be bonded into place. After that, we then take an impression of your teeth so the veneers fit and match perfectly to your unique smile. The veneers are then bonded into place and then we use a special light that activates the cement to make sure the veneers are firmly in place. After that process you have a brand-new, perfect smile!

Don’t wait any longer for the smile you always wanted and deserved. It’s time to trust the most experienced dental office in Philadelphia with porcelain veneer smile makeovers. Give us a call at 215-568-6222 or send us an email info@phillydentistry.com and don’t forget to follow us on Instagram to stay up to date with all the recent news. Thanks for reading.

During the whole month of September take advantage of our monthly special of buy 6 veneers and get 2 FREE! Veneers can help with many dental problems such as, gaps, shape, discoloration and so much more. If you are interested in having a perfect smile here are a few things you should know before getting porcelain veneers from Philadelphia Dentistry.

veneers & whitening

1. Your new smile will be made specifically for you. You decide all your specifications so we can give you the smile you always wanted. We customize the veneers to give you an all-natural look to get rid of any dental issues you want to change. Our great dentists will take into consideration the enamel thickness and your bite when helping you decide what looks best for your specific smile.

2. It’s important to know that your veneers will not be placed on you at your first visit. This is typically a two-appointment process at Philadelphia Dentistry. Our doctors want to also make sure that you are a good candidate for veneers or if they think there’s a better option for your smile. Like I mentioned above we want to make sure your smile is perfect before we send anything to our trusted lab.

3. Before your veneers are delivered you will have to wear temporary veneers. Your temporary veneers will look very similar to your porcelain veneers that are being made in our lab. This will give you an opportunity to see how your new smile will look without giving you a huge surprise after the real veneers are placed on your teeth. The temporary veneers will be placed on your teeth with temporary bonding cement so they can be removed when ready for the final step of the process, the veneer delivery.

4. The process is not too painful at all. There may be a little discomfort related to the placement of your veneers, but not a lot. Our patients should not feel any actual pain while this is being done. Our doctors are some of the gentlest dentists in Philly and will numb the area that is being worked on to ensure you feel nothing. The patient may experience a little bit of sensitivity on the gum line the day the veneers are delivered, but should go away in a few days.

5. Your natural teeth will still be there under the veneers, but they will be a little smaller and thinner so the veneer can go on top of the natural tooth. This is to ensure that the veneers will hold on to your natural teeth and fit properly. It varies patient to patient for how much the tooth needs to be shaved down. It’s important to keep in mind that the placement of your porcelain veneers is one that is permanent so be sure to pick a dentist office you can trust. Philadelphia Dentistry has done the most veneer cases in all of Philadelphia which means we have the most experience when it comes to giving you the smile you always wanted.

Give us a call today 215-568-6222 for a free new patient consultation to see if porcelain veneers are the best option to correct your smile. Our trusted doctors will give you a free exam and discuss your options with you. If porcelain veneers are the right choice you can take advantage of the September monthly special of buy 6 veneers and get 2 FREE! That’s a huge savings for something that will change your life.

Summer time is for smiling and if you are not satisfied with your smile, it’s time to come to Philly Dentistry! During the whole month of June take advantage of our monthly special of $1,000 off your set of 8 veneers. Porcelain veneers can completely change your smile for the best. If you have any dental problems like stains, chips, cracks, gaps, or even slightly misaligned teeth then veneers can take those imperfections and turn your smile into perfection!

First things first, what are porcelain veneers? Think about how thin a contact lens is and that is how thin your porcelain veneer will be. They are extremely thin, but extremely strong and can last up to 15 years, if you have good oral hygiene and make sure you’re getting your routine cleanings and check-ups every 6 months. Each veneer is custom-made to improve your specific smile so you have the best natural looking smile makeover. The thin porcelain veneers will go over your original teeth to improve any dental problem you may be suffering with, it’s that easy!

Are porcelain veneers right for me? If you are interested in treating your smile with a more permanent solution then veneers are a great choice for you. The only requirement a patient needs to get porcelain veneers is that they are healthy enough to support them. So, if a patient has any cavities or gum disease, they will need to be treated for that before they can get the porcelain veneers.

Check out what our patients had to say about us and their porcelain veneers, “I wanted to take a brief moment to express how happy your work has made my life. A few months ago, you outfitted my teeth with porcelain veneers in your dental office in Philadelphia. Getting porcelain veneers was undoubtedly the most important and rewarding decision I have ever made in my life. I was so unhappy with the appearance of my teeth and the first impression they made on people. Today, that has all changed. After the procedure, my family could not believe the difference and immediately noticed how much more I smile. My friends could not quite put their finger on what had changed but only that I looked great and always seemed happy…I do not believe that I could have made a great Best Man speech without the confidence I have been given having such a wonderful smile. I do not think I will ever truly be able to convey how happy I am and what you have been able to do for me. Eternally grateful.”
