    It has been a fun-filled year! Throughout 2021, our blog has educated you, made you laugh, or made you smile. We have hand-picked a few of our favorite posts from 2021. If you haven’t read them yet, check them out!

    Tiktokers are shaving their teeth?!

    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.

    Deep Cleaning Scaling and Root Planing

    Do you think you need a deep cleaning? What does a deep cleaning entail? Deep cleaning involves gum scaling and root planing. Scaling and root planing is a way that we treat gum infections. The symptoms that someone might experience when they need scaling and root planing could be bad breath, a bad taste in their mouth, bleeding, swelling, tender gums, and unfortunately, sometimes they don’t have any symptoms at all.

    What is plaque?

    You know that icky feeling on your teeth when you first wake up in the morning? That’s plaque! Plaque is a clear, sticky bacteria that is constantly forming on your teeth. When it’s not cleaned regularly, the plaque hardens and creates calculus, which is also known as tartar. Calculus cannot be removed with before-bed and in-the-morning brushing. When this occurs, you need to visit the dentist for a professional cleaning. 

    Should I wear a nightguard?

    Do you wake up with migraines in the morning? This could be a sign of clenching or grinding your teeth in your sleep. You might be a good candidate for a nightguard. You may not realize the clenching or grinding, but a lot of people do fall victim to it. Time after time, patients sit in the chair and say, “I don’t clench or grind.” However, they are clenching and grinding as they say that! Over time, the constant wear and tear of clenching or grinding take a toll on your teeth.

    Dental Smiles Month Patient Highlight

    June is Dental Smiles Month, so we thought it would only be appropriate to highlight one of our awesome patients showing off their fabulous smiles! Our patient Blanche first came to us and felt self-conscious with her smile. She told us how she takes pride in her appearance and has always made it a point to take care of herself. For instance, she has always practiced skin care and hair care. So much so, that she is accustomed to receiving compliments about her awesome skin daily. However, she never thought about the importance of dental care.

    Start the new year off right with a brand-new smile. For the entire month of January, we are offering $300 off Invisalign + FREE teeth whitening bleach! Invisalign is a simple, quick method of straightening teeth without the time and hassle of traditional metal braces. Invisalign is the invisible form of aligners that allows you to improve the appearance of your smile. It specifically can fix crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or teeth with gaps, quickly and efficiently!

    Why should you correct your smile?

    Straight teeth are easy to clean! With Invisalign, brushing at home is more efficient, easier, and quicker. Flossing is also easier. Sliding dental floss between straight teeth is quick, painless, and easy! You will have better dental cleanings. Your next check-up at the dentist will involve less scraping, less discomfort and the cleaning will be a lot faster. When your teeth are straight and healthy, you will get fewer cavities. Straight teeth have fewer hiding places for bacteria and food. Since it is easier to keep clean, the possibility of cavities is slim.

    Don’t wait.

    Give us a call at 215-568-6222 to schedule your FREE new patient consultation. During your free consultation, you will meet with one of our award-winning doctors to talk about your smile goals. We will also take a scan of your teeth with our Invisalign iTero Scanner. This scan will allow us to see a side-by-side comparison of your current smile and what your smile would look like after Invisalign. We also can look at a simulation video that shows the beginning to end movements of your teeth. You will only experience personalized VIP treatment at Philadelphia Dentistry.

    Looking for a new job can be one of the most stressful journeys. With unemployment at a high, still suffering from the effects of COVID-19, there has been a surplus of people job seeking. You need to make a killer resume, write a cover letter that expresses your interest in the position and keep your eyes peeled for new listings. That’s before you even get a job interview too. We’re exhausted thinking about it!

    Stressed for job interview?

    Once you finally hear back from an employer, you need to prep for the interview. The interview process can be nerve-wracking for many. Statistically speaking, you only have 7 seconds to make a good first impression. Your potential employer will make an assumption about you as soon as you walk into the room. Therefore, you want to make sure you make it a good one. Don’t worry though, here at Philly Dentistry, we’ve cracked the code that will help you land your dream job.

    Smile at your interview.

    Smiling gives you confidence! Walk into that room with a warm smile on your face. We promise that it will set the tone for the interview. Smiles are contagious so, if you put out that energy, your potential employer will inevitably start smiling too. Don’t be a part of the 39% of the candidates that get rejected due to low confidence level and lack of smile.

    Let’s make it happen.

    Do you feel like your smile needs some work? Give us a call. Whether you just want a cleaning to feel fresh, a whitening to brighten your teeth, or a smile makeover, our staff and doctors at Philly Dentistry can bring all of your smile goals to life.

    The Philly Dentistry Team is ready for you to land the job!

    Our patient got a job!

    Our new patient, Joshua K., found us on social media and knew that he needed to be our patient! In this video, he talks about how Philly Dentistry is the reason he got his new job. Check it out!

    Ted Y. – Porcelain Veneers

    Our patient first came to us after experiencing a bad car accident that left his front teeth damaged. The goal was to get him healthy again and to give him the smile he always wanted. Our hygiene team, EFDAS, and doctors all worked together to make it happen. Here is Ted’s before and after photos with whitening and porcelain veneers! Ted also shared some kind words with us, “Dr. Jeon and her staff of hygienists and assistants, Jen and Alyssa,  took my case and did a beautiful job on my restorations.  They worked meticulously and the end result absolutely blew my expectations out the water! I had really bad experiences in the past with dentists, but each visit, their bedside manner was above the line of duty.  I actually look forward to coming in and don t mind the commute to get the best dental care in Philly!”

    Are you looking to brighten your smile? We have the perfect special that will allow you to get the results you are looking for, all from the comfort of your own home! During the entire month of November, we invite our patients to take advantage of our $124 Custom-Made Bleach Tray Special!

    Let’s talk about the trays.

    Bleach tray patients will visit us for a quick appointment that allows us to make the trays for you. The trays are custom-made to fit your bite. We take impressions of your mouth and begin making your custom trays. A few days later, we will invite you back to the office to pick up your trays and bleaching gel. In addition, you will meet with a team member, who will explain in detail how to use the whitening bleach at home. We will answer any questions you have in person, and also give you a take-home sheet explaining the process as well!

    You control it.

    Since this is an at-home service, you are in control of your results. The results will depend on your dedication and willingness to follow the instructions. If done correctly, your teeth can jump about six shades whiter than they were. The whitening only needs to be done 15 minutes a day for seven to 10 days, and the results will last up to two years!

    The best!

    The customized bleaching trays are far more powerful than any over-the-counter whitening treatments. Only the bleaching trays from Philly Dentistry have the powerful whitening agents of carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide that will give you the brighter teeth you want. Professional teeth whitening is designed to separate stain molecules within your enamel and give you a long-lasting white smile. So, take advantage of this amazing deal and let’s see how bright your smile gets!

    Give us a call!

    Give us a call at (215) 568-6222 to get set up for an appointment. While you’re at it, follow us on social media @phillydentistry.

    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!

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.
