Prepping Your Smile for Your Big Day

It’s officially Fall, which means it’s officially wedding season! Your big day may only last 24 hours but the pictures last forever. This means you’ll want your smile to be in tip top shape. We at Chesterfield Family Dentistry are here to give you the best tips and tricks on how to get your wedding day grin looking radiant and bright.

Wear White to The Wedding!

I’m sure you’ve heard to never wear white to a wedding, but that saying isn’t about your teeth! One of the most common procedures to get done before a wedding is teeth whitening. This will give you a more confident smile, and give your photographer a break with less cosmetic edits to make!

Here at Chesterfield Family Dentistry we offer two different types of teeth whitening. We offer custom take-home trays, and professional teeth whitening in the office.

In-office whitening will give you a noticeably whiter smile in just one appointment, while take home trays may take a bit longer to see results. Schedule a consultation at Chesterfield Family Dentistry so we can ensure your whitening experience is great. Dr. Silva and his team will guide you through the custom take-home tray steps or the in-office whitening experience and make sure the results exceed your expectations.

Have Time? Invisalign!

Insecure about your crooked smile, or just a few teeth that are out-of-line? If you have time, get Invisalign! Invisalign is a nearly invisible option for teeth straightening. However, this will take a bit more time to see results.

Like braces, Invisalign straightens your teeth to get you the smile of your dreams. With Invisalign, you could see a straighter smile in as little as 6 months! Plus, the nearly invisible straightening trays allow you to live life as normal without the bulky look of braces on your teeth! This is the perfect option for adults who are wanting to perfect their smile, while going on with daily life as normal.

Perfect with Cosmetic Dentistry!

Some cosmetic dentistry procedure may take a bit more time to prep and recover, but if you plan ahead you may be able to perfect your smile with composite bonding, veneers, or custom crowns.

Composite bonding can be a relatively fast and non-invasive option for fixing gaps, chips, or just giving the appearance of a straighter smile. In this process, a type of dental material is shaped and molded to your teeth to fix these imperfections.
Veneers are a quick way to a radiant smile, and can be used to correct stained, chipped, or gapped teeth. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, a veneer is a “thin piece of porcelain used to re-create the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. Chesterfield Family Dentistry will custom make veneers to match the shape and color of your natural teeth!
Lastly, custom crowns are used to entirely cover or “cap” a damaged tooth, and can be used to improve appearance, shape, or alignment ( This process is also fairly non-invasive and perfect for fixing dental imperfections fairly quickly.
Unsure what type of technique will fix your dental concerns? Call us to schedule a consultation so we can go through your options, prices, and next steps! We want to make sure your smile is perfect for your big day!
