    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).”

    “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!

    At Philadelphia Dentistry, we offer a plethora of cosmetic dental procedures. Cosmetic dentistry is a type of dentistry that generally is done to enhance the appearance of the teeth. It is not only limited to appearance though, as it also can improve oral health. Let’s talk about the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer at our center city office.

    Erik H. veneers

    1. Whitening

    Professional teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic treatment in dentistry. Haven’t we all looked at our smiles and wished it was brighter? In most whitening cases, patients don’t need any other work and simply just want whiter teeth. This treatment can be done at-home or in-office and is typically a more affordable cosmetic treatment for patients. Store-bought whitening gels or strips don’t always provide the results patients desire. Therefore, going directly for professional whitening will save you time and money.

    1. Dental Bonding

    Dental bonding is a low cost and simple procedure. The procedure is performed to improve the shade of teeth, close gaps, repair chips, and lengthen teeth. First, the dentist will review a shade guide with the patient. You will be able to select the desired color you want for your teeth. After that, the painless procedure takes place and the dentist will mold the dental resin to your teeth. This quick procedure will have you walking out with a brand-new smile in only one visit!

    1. Porcelain Veneers

    Porcelain veneers are simple and strong, while the results are immediate, dramatic, and long-lasting. Even more long-lasting than bleaching or bonding, porcelain veneers have a life expectancy for up to 20 years. They are resistant to stains and chips and won’t discolor over time. Porcelain veneers will give teeth a complete smile makeover in just two visits.

    1. Invisalign

    Say goodbye to traditional braces and consider Invisalign. Invisalign is the invisible version of braces that treats gaps, crowdedness, and crookedness. Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign is quicker and easier. At Philly Dentistry, we are Invisalign specialists, and because of that, we charge about $1,500-$2,000 less than other orthodontist specialists.

    Whether you want brighter, straighter, or made over teeth, Philly Dentistry has got you covered. Give us a call to book your new patient free consultation and we can start talking about a treatment plan that is right for you!

    veneers & whitening

    Is professional teeth whitening for everyone? If you are unsatisfied with the color of your teeth, you’ve probably tried a bunch of remedies. For example, buying whitening strips, whitening gels, whitening toothpaste, etc. If none of these have worked, you’ve probably started to consider professional whitening. Make an appointment with your dentist to find out if you are a good candidate. Unfortunately, not everyone is a good candidate for professional teeth whitening. Some people are born with naturally duller teeth. In this case, no whitening treatment can fix that. What you need to consider instead are porcelain veneers.

    Porcelain Veneers

    Porcelain veneers are known for being a quick solution to having a perfect smile. In just two visits, our doctors can take your smile from 0 to 100. If your teeth are crooked, porcelain veneers can fix that. Any gaps you have can be closed with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers give your teeth strength. Lastly, you can pick the shade you want for your veneers. Say goodbye to dull teeth and say hello to the bright smile you’ve been dreaming of.

    Longevity

    Porcelain veneers, with the proper care, last longer than bonding or whitening as they can last up to 15 to 20 years. Veneers are extremely natural-looking. Despite looking natural, they don’t undergo the same effects as natural teeth over time. Porcelain veneers are resistant to chips and stains and won’t discolor over time.

    Proper Care

    So, proper care is important, but what exactly does that mean? Porcelain veneers should be treated just like your natural teeth. Make sure you visit the dentist twice a year for a professional cleaning and dental exam. Your dentist is a professional and will keep your mouth healthy and on the right track. Be sure to brush and floss your teeth as well. It’s important to brush and floss every day to ensure a proper cleaning for your mouth. All in all, there is no special treatment needed for maintaining healthy veneers. All you have to do is act as if they were your natural teeth.

    So, what are you waiting for? Come in for a free new patient consultation and let’s work on a treatment plan. We want you to feel confident with your smile.

    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.

    Jaelen Strong Veneers

    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.
