    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!

    ● Dark or stained teeth

    ● Chipped teeth

    ● Crooked teeth

    ● Missing teeth

    ● Cracked or worn teeth

    ● Gaps or crowdedness

    ● Cavities 

    ● Silver filings

Here at Philly Dentistry, we treat all of our patients with top-notch care and deliver only the best results. Check out these different smile makeovers we’ve done to see what type of cosmetic dentistry seems right for you.

    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.

    It’s been a crazy year. You deserve to treat yourself. That’s why for the first time ever, we’ve decided to offer a fun summer special. During the entire month of July, if you buy 6 porcelain veneers, we will gift you a FREE $200 gift card to Kári Skin!

    Who is Kári Skin?

    Kári brings a fresh and enlightening experience to luxury aesthetics with an eye toward healthful, inspired living. At Kári, they believe that beauty starts from beneath the surface, and their mission is to uncover the underlying beauty waiting to emerge from behind every face.

    Flawlessness

    Veneers can take your smile from 0 to 100 in just two dental visits. If you have any dental issues like stains, chips, breaks, holes, or even somewhat skewed teeth, porcelain veneers can take those blemishes and transform your smile into flawlessness!

    What are they like?

    First of all, what are veneers? They are thin, however incredibly solid, and can last as long as 15 years. For best results, you need to have great at-home oral hygiene and ensure that you’re getting your normal cleanings. Each veneer is uniquely designed to improve your desired smile. Does that mean that patients get to design their new smile? It sure does! Together, you and the doctor will come up with your veneer shades and sizes. This ensures you are getting EXACTLY what you want. The thin veneers will go over your teeth to improve any dental issue you might be enduring, it’s that simple!

    Book now

    Book your free new patient consultation with Philly Dentistry today to check whether you are a candidate for veneers. In only 2 simple visits you can totally change your smile into the smile you’ve always dreamed of. We are porcelain veneer specialists and have been treating patients for veneers for over 17 years!

    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 skincare 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.

    Blanche took selfies as soon as she got home from her appointment with us. She couldn’t wait to show off her smile!

    Blanche S. Smile

    From her first visit, Blanche was a ray of sunshine. Her positive energy radiated off of her and by the end of her appointment, everyone in the office felt like a friend of Blanche. After a few visits with our team, Blanche started feeling confident with her smile again. Below are a few words from Blanche about her smile makeover.

    Thank you for my smile

    “I first came to the Philadelphia Dentistry all screwed up so to speak as far as my teeth are concerned. Prior to my coming to Philadelphia Dentistry, I dared not to show my teeth while smiling because of the bad appearance of my teeth. I mean quite a few of my teeth were brown colored and full of backed-up decay, particularly the bottom front teeth. After saying all that, I hope you can understand the full picture as to why I didn’t show my teeth while smiling. I was absolutely ashamed.

    Thanks to Philadelphia Dentistry that has all changed. After about three visits to the Philadelphia Dentistry, I am no longer ashamed to show my teeth while I’m smiling, in fact, I make sure in every one of my smiles that my teeth are showing. Thank you, Philadelphia Dentistry, for putting a big smile on my face and allowing me to show my teeth with pride.” -Blanche S.

    Does this sound like you?

    If your story relates anyway to Blanche’s, please give us a call. We are here to help people get healthy and feel confident within themselves. It is our mission to make sure every patient walks out of our doors with a smile on their face ready to reach for the stars. Please contact us by calling (215) 568-6222 so we can schedule a FREE new patient consultation. During that first visit, you will meet with one of our awesome doctors and figure out what the best treatment plan is for you. We are all in this together and want only the best for you! We hope to see you soon.

    Do you feel nervous before going to a dental appointment? You’re not alone. Maybe your scared of possible pain, drill sounds, or even just the smell of the office. Dental anxiety is real and a lot of people suffer from it. At Philly Dentistry, we ensure that our patient’s dental health and mental health are both taken care of. In this blog, we will be going over some tips to help overcome dental anxiety. Use these strategies at your next dentist visit to help ease your anxiety.

    Fear of pain

    If you are feeling uncomfortable or anxious, it is important to make that known to the dentist. We all want to be on the same page and make accommodations to ensure the smoothest appointment possible. By voicing how you feel, the doctor will know exactly how to navigate the appointment. Try to be as specific as possible as that will make for the best communication. For example, if you are in fear of any pain, your doctor can be gentler or even sometimes administer medication to help ease potential pain.

    Loss of control

    If sitting in the chair with the bib wrapped around your neck makes you feel stuck, you’re not alone. This is a common feeling that stems from claustrophobia. If you can relate to this, let your doctor know at the beginning of the appointment. Together, you and the doctor can come up with some sort of break system that allows you to remain comfortable for the entire appointment.

    Stressed about cost

    Dental work can be costly. However, keeping up with regular visits with your hygienist will reduce the need for more expensive treatments later on. In the event that you do need a costly treatment, talk with the office’s financial coordinator. Together, a payment plan can be arranged that is most financially convenient for you.

    All in all, keeping high communication with your dentist and the office staff will be the most effective way to reduce any dental anxiety. Being clear with how you feel will allow the team to help you to make accommodations to make you feel as comfortable as possible. You are the patient and we are here to keep you healthy physically and mentally! Give us a call at (215) 568-6222 to book your next appointment.

    Are you trying to get back into the dating world? Whether you are going out on dates or swiping on dating apps, you are trying to make a good first impression. What is the first physical characteristic men and women are quick to judge one another for? Is it their profession? Could it be their height? People’s smiles are the first thing others notice when meeting for the first time. Therefore, if you are jumping back into the dating world, you want to make sure you have a nice smile!

    Here at Philly Dentistry, we’ve got you covered. We are smile professionals and can make any ‘smile dream’ come true. Stained teeth? Come in for a whitening that can make your smile jump up to 10 shades brighter! If that doesn’t sound good enough, we have another whitening option. We offer an at-home whitening treatment that will give you the same results. What’s the difference? The only difference is that you are in control of the treatment and perform it on yourself at home. Don’t worry though, our team will provide you with step by step directions to make the process super simple for you. (BTW, our at-home whitening trays are on sale this May for $169!)

    Are your teeth misaligned, gapped, or crowded? You might be a good candidate for Invisalign. Invisalign is the new and improved version of braces. When your dating, you don’t want wires and brackets in your mouth. Invisalign throws that old-fashioned concept out the window. Fix your smile with Invisalign’s invisible custom-made aligners. Check out this infographic for more about the treatment.

    Lastly, if you don’t have time to whiten or straighten your teeth with traditional methods, porcelain veneers could be the fix you’ve been looking for. Porcelain veneers are an excellent way to quickly and efficiently enhance your smile. In about two visits, our team of rockstar doctors can transform your smile. The best part about veneers is that you get to chose how you want your smile to look. You and the doctor will look through shapes and shades to decide what would look best for your smile.

    So, if you are getting back into the dating scene and really want to WOW your partners with an amazing smile, give us a call. One of our team members will get you set up with a FREE new patient consultation and from there we will come up with a treatment plan together. We can guarantee you will not want to stop smiling after completing a smile makeover with our Philly Dentistry team!

    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.
