One of the most popular cosmetic treatments at our dentistry is teeth whitening. We offer two whitening treatments which are both quick and easy to do. The first option is custom-made bleach whitening trays. These trays are custom-made so that they fit perfectly to your teeth. The great thing about your bleach trays is that you can use them in the comfort of your own home. Just apply the bleaching gel for about ten minutes a day for ten days and your teeth can become up to six shades whiter. This option is great for people that have tooth sensitivity. The next whitening option is ZOOM! Whitening. This option is great for someone who wants their teeth whitened fast. With ZOOM! your teeth can become up to ten shades whiter in just one hour at our office! Sit back, relax, listen to some music and let the ZOOM! do its magic.

If you want to completely change your smile in just two visits, then porcelain veneers are the best option for you. Porcelain veneers can just about fix anything that is wrong with your smile. Stains, chips, crowding, gaps, short teeth, you name it and veneers will give you the best smile makeover. Our talented doctors will pick the best veneers that fit perfectly with your smile so that they look natural. Porcelain veneers are extremely strong and can last up to decades as long as you properly take care of them. Get that perfect smile you always wanted and see how a smile makeover could change your life.

Nowadays, people are embarrassed to get those old fashion metal braces, especially if you’re an adult. There is a solution now and it’s called Invisalign. Invisalign does the same thing metal braces will do, but on average in half the time. The best part is nobody will notice you have them in because of their clear aligners that shift your teeth into a straight beautiful smile.

Very similar to porcelain veneers, Cerinate Lumineers have the same results. Lumineers are different from veneers by the way the teeth are prepared. With Lumineers there is very little prep required because there is no need to sand away any tooth enamel like with veneers. Lumineers are a very thin layer of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your tooth and are made in any size, color, and shape that you want, which will give you an all-natural perfect looking smile.

Don’t wait any longer to have that perfect smile. Life is too short to not be completely happy with yourself. So, if there is something small or something big you want to change about your smile Philadelphia Dentistry is the best choice for any cosmetic or general dentist need. Give us a call at 215-568-6222 for a free new patient consultation and see how we can change your life!

With the holiday’s right around the corner there is a lot to be smiling about. During the month of December take advantage of our amazing monthly special of $1000 off a set of 8 veneers. With porcelain veneers you can completely change your smile in just 2 visits to our Center City, Philadelphia office. There’s a reason we have done the most veneer procedures in all of Philadelphia, because when it comes to your smile we want nothing, but the best for you!

There are many benefits for getting porcelain veneers and like I mentioned above, it’s a really quick process and only takes two visits. Veneers can fix problems like crooked teeth, gaps, stains, and much more. If you have naturally weak teeth from old or damaged fillings, then veneers can strengthen your teeth to give you a healthier looking smile. Stains on the teeth are always a concern for patients especially, if they can’t get rid of them due to antibiotics from a young age. Porcelain veneers can instantly get rid of any stains you have because of the super thin, natural looking veneer that is placed over your original tooth.

Porcelain veneers, when taken care of can last up to 25 years! They are resistant to chips and stains and look just like your natural teeth. Even though, they are resistant to stains it is important to take care of them by brushing and flossing daily along with visiting your dentist every 6 months to maintain healthy teeth and gums for life!

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular services at any dentistry because people want a whiter smile and they want it right away! During the whole month of November take advantage of our monthly special of $169 custom-made take home bleach whitening trays. There are a few things that many people don’t realize when they ask for their teeth to be whitened.

It’s important to have your teeth cleaned before any whitening procedure. When your teeth are clean that makes the best surface for getting your teeth whiter. One of our great dental hygienists will clean and remove any build up of tartar or plaque so you can get the best possible results.

An oral exam is just as important as a cleaning because the dentist needs to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy before starting your whitening treatment. The oral exam is to confirm that you do not have any tooth decay, cracked teeth, gum disease, or any other oral risks that may cause problems with the whitening. If any problems show up during your oral exam you’ll need to get it treated before any teeth whitening can be started. This is very important to receive the best results and to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy for life!

The best part about your custom-made bleach trays is that you can do it in the privacy of your own home. When using your bleach trays the results depend solely on you. When done correctly your teeth can transform up to 6 shades whiter than before and last up to 2 years with proper care. The whole process is done for about 10 to 15 minutes a day for about 7 to 10 days and just like that you can have a great white smile, all in the comfort of your home.

When you have a whiter smile, it makes you feel more confident in your social and professional life. This will make you overall happier knowing that you have a great smile. Don’t hesitate, take advantage of this monthly special and take half off your custom-made bleach trays. Give us a call today to see if teeth whitening is the right choice for you! 215-568-6222.

25005138_152349512076052_4777900595652591616_nDo you have misaligned teeth? Are you too embarrassed to get those old fashion metal braces? Well, there is a solution for you and it’s called Invisalign. Often times, people ask how long does this treatment take? It is different for just about everyone because it is based on how much your teeth need to be shifted and how attentive you are to following directions and wearing your trays. As a patient of Invisalign you must be willing to commit and trust the process to achieve the best results.

The time that it takes you to complete your Invisalign treatment is almost cut in half compared to the old fashion metal braces. On average, most patients complete their treatment within a year, sometimes less.

When you decide to choose Invisalign to correct your smile, what you can expect from the first appointment, which is called the “records” appointment is for it to last about 50 minutes. At this appointment you will get detailed scans from our iTero Invisalign Outcome Simulator. This scan will be able to show you what your teeth will look like after your Invisalign treatment is finished…before you even start! Also, x-rays of your teeth will be taken during this appointment so that your Invisalign trays are customized perfectly just for you. Your next appointment will be in about 3 weeks from this initial visit.

When you come back in 3 weeks this appointment will last about 1 hour. At this appointment you will get your first set of Invisalign trays and one of our excellent doctors and dental assistants will show you how to properly insert and remove them, so no damage is done to your teeth. Attachments will then be placed on your teeth so that they fit well and are able to move properly. After this appointment you will then be seeing one of our accomplished doctors every 6 to 8 weeks to get your next set of trays.

Every 6 to 8 weeks when you come back to receive your next set of trays these visits will only last about 20 to 30 minutes. During this appointment the doctor will make sure your teeth are shifting as planned. If anything needs to be adjusted the doctors will make correction so that you are getting the best Invisalign treatment on the East Coast.

Some rules of time with Invisalign so that you are making the most of your treatment is that they should be worn for at least 22 hours a day. You may take out your trays when you eat, brush and floss your teeth.

Each of your trays should be worn for at least a 2-week period or directed otherwise by your doctor. Your set of trays need around 150-300 hours of wear so that your teeth can move and settle before moving to your next set of trays. By following these guidelines, you will utilize the most from your Invisalign treatment and achieve the best results. During the whole month of October take $500 off your Invisalign treatment plus free whitening and get that smile you’ve always wanted. Call Philly Dentistry today at 215-568-6222.

Porcelain veneers are one of the most effective ways to transform your smile into a brand new one within the shortest amount of time. Veneers can correct almost every dental problem such as, chips, stains, spaces between teeth, and even fanged teeth. Porcelain veneers are a beautiful, natural way to improve your smile.

Advantages of porcelain veneers at Philly Dentistry are that it’s a fast procedure! An entire smile can be changed in just 2 visits to our Center City office. Your crooked teeth can be corrected to give you a great smile makeover and give you the confidence you deserve. No more gaps between your teeth because veneers can close any gap you want closed. When your natural teeth are weakened by old or broken fillings, veneers can now strengthen them. Another advantage of porcelain veneers are that they preserve the natural tooth structure and the surrounding soft tissues remain untouched. Lasting longer than bleaching or bonding, porcelain veneers have the durability to last 12-25 years! They are even resistant to stains, chips, and are extremely natural looking.

Here are some frequently asked questions about porcelain veneers.

How are veneers placed on my teeth?
At Philadelphia Dentistry we carefully examine the position of your teeth and what you are seeking to achieve as a final result. Our accomplished doctors precisely reshape your teeth just enough to make a long-lasting, natural-looking new smile. Old-technique veneers required extensive drilling of your tooth structure. Nowadays, this is faster, easier and much more comfortable, which results in veneers that mimic your natural teeth.

How do I take care of my veneers?
Once applied to your teeth, you can treat them just like your natural teeth. You brush and floss daily and use no special toothpaste. You do not need to worry about stains or even discolor over time.

How long do veneers last?
Mentioned above your veneers have a life expectancy of 12-25 years. You will receive a 5-year warranty against chipping, cracking and any breakage in our office as long as you maintain a cleaning appointment with us every 6 months and wear a protective device called a nightguard after your veneers are placed.

During the month of September take advantage of our monthly special of buy 6 veneers and get 2 FREE! Offer valid until September 30th 2018.

Are you embarrassed to smile? Does this hold you back from making the most of life? No one should ever feel timid to smile or laugh. If you want something to change about your smile to make yourself more confident in your everyday life, Philly Dentistry is the best place to get all your cosmetic and general dentistry needs. A smile makeover with Philly Dentistry creates a beautiful new smile that will make you look younger, happier, and healthier.

Smile Makeovers at Philly Dentistry
There are many different cosmetic dentistry procedures that you can get specifically for whatever your dental needs may be. Chipped teeth? Misaligned teeth? Stains? Gapped teeth? No problem at all! Most dental fixes can be corrected with porcelain veneers from Philly Dentistry. Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular procedures at our dentistry. Patients love the fact that in only two visits they can have a total smile makeover with natural looking, straight, white, and beautiful porcelain veneers.

How are porcelain veneers applied?
At your first appointment for porcelain veneers you will begin the process with either Dr. Cirka, Dr. Meier, or Dr. Jeon by making an impression of your teeth and then creating a mold of how your teeth will look with porcelain veneers. Next, your impressions will be sent over to our trusted dental lab where they customize the veneers to look perfect for your smile. This process typically takes a few weeks for the lab to create your porcelain veneers and then send them back to our office.

Once your veneers are the right shape, color, and size our doctors will then prep your teeth that are receiving the porcelain veneers. Prepping the teeth usually consists of a cleaning and some light sanding so the veneers fit perfectly to your teeth. After the prepping of your teeth the veneers will then be put in place. Once they are placed they will be formed to your mouth shape and face so your smile looks beautiful and most importantly, natural. When you and the dentist are completely satisfied with the appearance of your new smile makeover, a specialized light will be used to dry the cement and permanently bond the porcelain veneers to your teeth. Just like that in only two visits Philadelphia Dentistry could completely revamp your smile! Give us a call today and get that smile you always wanted 215-568-6222.

During the whole month of July, you can take advantage of our monthly special of $500 off your Invisalign treatment, plus free custom-made bleach whitening trays. Invisalign is the new convenient way of straightening your teeth for less money and time. Throughout, your Invisalign treatment it is very important that you follow the doctor’s instructions so that you can achieve that smile you always wanted. Here are some tips about Invisalign to help you get the most out of your treatment.

Adults Traveling - 3

1. Flossing.
Every day you should be brushing your teeth along with flossing too. Flossing is extremely important, especially during your Invisalign treatment because any left-over food particles can be held in your mouth when wearing your aligners. Be sure to floss thoroughly every day before wearing your aligners so you can get the most out of your treatment.

2. Wearing your aligner trays for at least 22 hours a day.
If you commit to wearing your aligners for 22 hours a day you will achieve the most from your Invisalign treatment. Invisalign only works if you’re willing to wear your aligners for most of the time. By wearing your aligners for at least 22 hours a day your treatment will take less time and your results will be very positive.

3. Changing your aligners in the right order and on time.
If Dr. Cirka, Dr. Meier, or Dr. Jeon let you know it’s time to change your aligner, it’s time to move on to the next set of trays. If the doctors tell you to keep the aligners in for a few extra days, let them in. Your treatment will not speed up if you’re not listening to your doctor by putting different trays in without being instructed first.

4. It may feel a little weird, but you’ll get used to it.
When you first start your Invisalign treatment it can feel a little weird because you are not used to wearing your trays, but don’t worry you will get used to it in no time. Most people say that they feel the aligners pushing against their teeth when they first start Invisalign. This feeling is not in any way painful unlike with metal braces after they’re adjusted. The best thing to do is to wear your aligners as much as possible so you’ll get used to them and eventually not even notice you have them in.

5. Knowing how to take care of your aligners.
Cleaning your trays is very important during your Invisalign treatment. The best way to clean your aligners is with antibacterial soap and some warm water. We do not recommend cleaning your trays with toothpaste because this can scratch the plastic, which in turn creates places for bacteria to get in.

6. Keeping your mouth clean.
It is important to keep your mouth very clean during your Invisalign treatment. It’s important because when you’re wearing your trays the plaque and bacteria you miss can be held against your teeth causing your teeth to become decayed or get cavities. Make sure every day that you are brushing at least twice and flossing at least once to ensure that your mouth stays healthy during your Invisalign treatment.

7. Using your retainer properly.
At the end of your treatment you will be instructed on wearing your retainer by one of our three outstanding doctors. Some patients make the mistake of not wearing their retainer after their Invisalign treatment, which means that their teeth may shift back and they’ll lose some of their progress they gained from Invisalign. Often times, the doctor will instruct you to wear your retainer for most of the day during the first few months and then to wear it only when you go to bed. It’s important to not miss any of your follow-up appointments so the doctors can track your progress and to see if you are doing everything correctly.

Give us a call today to schedule a free new patient consultation and see if you’re a candidate for Invisalign. While you’re here you can use our Invisalign Outcome Simulator to see what your smile will look like after Invisalign, before you even start your treatment! Call today 215-568-6222.

Invisalign vs. Smile Direct Club
The only thing Invisalign and Smile Direct Club have in common is that they both have clear aligners for you to wear. There are no in person dentist visits that allow the dentist to monitor your treatment. A lot of times people that use Smile Direct Club end up going to the dentist to correct any problems they had while using Smile Direct Club. The most common problem is that attachments are not used, this could make your teeth move back and forth and not move the way they were originally planned.
