  • 5 Tools For Tooth Transformations

    porcelain veneers price Boise

    Too-small teeth. Misshapen teeth. Cracked teeth. Chipped teeth. Spacing irregularities. These problems are all-too-common. But you don’t have to live with them! With the advances in cosmetic dentistry, Blaisdell Family Dentistry offers fixes for these vexing tooth issues!

    1. Veneers. Also called dental laminates or porcelain veneers. These extremely thin shells are custom-made so the size, shape, and color are perfectly matched to your surrounding teeth. The veneers are securely cemented to the front of the teeth to dramatically upgrade your smile.

    2. Bonding. This procedure uses a strong tooth-colored resin to close spaces, correct chips and cracks, or change the shape. The resin is molded into place and then a light is applied to harden the material for secure adherence to the tooth.

    3. Recontouring. Minimally-invasive reshaping of a tooth by removing small bits of enamel to improve the shape or length. This cosmetic dentistry procedure is sometimes called odontoplasty or slenderizing.

    4. Crowns. Most people are familiar with this durable multi-purpose restoration. Natural-looking dental crowns are fabricated in the shape and color of the tooth and cemented into place to fully cover the part of the tooth visible above the gumline.

    5. Braces. Patients of all ages are transforming their smiles with state-of-the art orthodontia. Before you dismiss this option as too time-consuming or expensive, learn about the new braces now available. Braces are more convenient and discrete than ever before.

    Countless Boise dental patients have achieved beautiful smiles with a cosmetic dental smile makeover from Blaisdell Family Dentistry!

    We’re  Drs. Craig and Lynn Blaisdell of Blaisdell Family Dentistry in Boise. We’re dedicated to to helping our patients have optimum oral health and beautiful smiles. If you have any questions about veneers, bonding, recontouring, or crowns, I invite you call us at 208-922-6902 to make an appointment today.

  • A Ginormous Cavity?

    Boise Cosmetic Dentistry When Drs. Blaisdell of Blaisdell Family Dentistry in Boise repair a tooth that has dental caries or damage, the procedure chosen often depends on the location of the problem. (We’re talking tooth-specific locale here; it doesn’t matter whether you live in Boise, Meridian, or Sun Valley.)

    If there is a chip, crack, or cavities on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay or inlay is often created to restore the tooth.

    Inlays and onlays are a type of tooth restoration used successfully at Blaisdell Family Dentistry. They are usually bigger than a conventional filling yet smaller than a complete crown. An inlay is used to fill an area inside the cusp tips or bumps of a tooth. An onlay covers an area that includes more than one cusp.

    At Blaisdell Family Dentistry, the inlays and onlays we place for our patients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Drs. Lynn R. Blaisdell has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to design the restoration and create an exact match.

  • Do You Love Your Smile?

    Boise Cosmetic Dentistry The Eagle people who are most happy with their smiles have healthy, straight teeth that sparkle when they laugh. If nature didn’t bless you with attractive teeth, you are not alone. Most perfect smiles you come across in Sun Valley were not always that way. They are the result of cosmetic dentistry performed by an experienced Boise aesthetic dentist.

    At Blaisdell Family Dentistry in Boise, Lynn R. Blaisdell DDS provides the state-of-the-art procedures that deliver dazzling, flawless teeth for cosmetic dentistry patients. We treat patients from 2 to 102. You are never too young or too old to improve your smile; but it will definitely make you feel younger!

    Two common smile problems are yellow enamel and chipped teeth.

    Discolored Teeth

    Few Boise people have pearly white smiles that stay that way forever. Even with consistent brushing, flossing and regular dental cleanings, our teeth darken as we age. Fortunately, the most affordable Boise cosmetic dentistry procedure is tooth bleaching. Picture yourself with a celebrity-caliber smile. It is possible with safe and affordable teeth whitening at Blaisdell Family Dentistry.

    Damaged Teeth

    Our teeth work hard for us day after day, year after year. Sometimes they get chipped or cracked in the process. If you would like to fix your tooth flaws, schedule a consultation by calling Blaisdell Family Dentistry at 208-922-6902. We use porcelain veneers every day to remedy tooth trauma. Cosmetic bonding has been used with fabulous results for many years and bonding is usually a fraction of the price of a crown.

    Ask Dr. Blaisdell which of our Boise cosmetic dentistry procedures can be completed in one appointment. How about a same-day smile makeover?

    If you have never been eager to show your teeth when you smile or laugh, now is the time to change that. Call Blaisdell Family Dentistry today at 208-922-6902 to schedule a smile design consultation.

  • Missing Teeth? Don’t Miss Out On A Beautiful Smile

    Boise cosmetic dentistry

    If you have missing spaces in your smile due to cavities, injury or any other reason, there is hope. If your existing teeth are stained, decayed, or cracked, there is hope. If your teeth have always been misshapen, or crooked, there is hope. Cosmetic dentistry can fix all of those problems.

    Blaisdell Family Dentistry has the skill to handle the toughest cosmetic dental problems. Since 1981, Dr. Blaisdell has restored and improved smiles with advanced cosmetic dentistry.

    Regardless of the problem, it is usually preferable to retain your natural teeth. If this is not possible, and you have already lost teeth, we offer multiple ways for you to keep (or regain) your ability to eat, drink, speak, laugh, and smile with confidence.

    Dental Veneers
    If you still have your teeth, but are unhappy with them, these might be the best solution. Stunning porcelain veneers offer a relatively cost-effective approach to cosmetic adjustments – uneven color, size, or shape. These are very thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They upgrade unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.

    Dental Implant
    A dental implant is a tooth replacement that consists of an artificial tooth PLUS an artificial root (usually biocompatible titanium). With local anesthesia, the artificial root is actually inserted into the jaw bone where it integrates with the bone tissue. There are three parts to a dental implant: the artificial root, the connecting abutment, and the final crown or denture.

    A dental implant is often the best suited restoration as it offers beauty, strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession that often take places at the site of a missing tooth.

    Dentures
    Most Boise residents have heard of dentures: a plate holding artificial teeth that can be removed for cleaning. These are individually-constructed and can contain varying numbers of teeth. Sometimes the entire set of upper and lower teeth have to be pulled and a denture created. Modern dentistry offers a myriad of custom dental implant-denture combinations to restore missing teeth.

    There is no need to miss out on a beautiful smile. Schedule your initial consultation at 208-922-6902 to visit us at 8877 W Hackamore Dr in Boise, Idaho. We are perfectly situated for our neighbors throughout the Boise area.

  • Is Perfect Possible?

    Meridian Cosmetic Dentistry Are you thinking about a smile makeover? Are you skeptical of promises of a “perfect smile” or a “celebrity smile?” Let’s review the most popular cosmetic dental procedures and the results that can be expected.

    Composite Veneers
    The application of porcelain veneers at Blaisdell Family Dentistry can remedy numerous aesthetic dental problems and is typically a better solution than dental bonding.

    Veneers can correct chips, cracks, minor tooth misalignment, tooth discoloration, unattractive tooth shape, and disproportionate tooth size. Can a porcelain veneer create a perfect tooth? While a veneer cannot repair a decayed tooth, it can turn an unsightly tooth into an aesthetically perfect tooth.

    Tooth Bleaching
    Tooth whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that dramatically improves a smile. However, some tooth whitening dentists will guarantee incredible results for any patient that wants a whiter smile.

    At Blaisdell Family Dentistry in Boise, we only recommend tooth bleaching for patients that are good candidates for the process. If you have several crowns in the front of your mouth, or gums that have receded, conventional tooth-whitening may not beautify your smile.

    Call 208-922-6902 to schedule a tooth-whitening consultation.

    Tooth-Colored Fillings

    Would you like to turn back the clock to your pre-filling smile? It is possible with white fillings at Blaisdell Family Dentistry. To get an idea of how the inside of your mouth would look without unattractive metal amalgam fillings, have someone without any fillings open their mouth. Do you remember when your mouth looked like that?

    These are just a few of the cosmetic dental solutions that create stunning smiles for our patients. Call us today!

  • Is Your Smile Holding You Back?

    Sun Valley cosmetic smile makeover

    Have you ever taken an unanticipated trip to the supermarket looking completely unkempt in a rush to purchase an emergency item – say cough medicine or a must-have poster board for your child’s school assignment?

    On such an occasion you will inevitably bump into someone you know. How do you feel in your sloppy sweatpants and stained T-shirt? Or worse yet, your pajamas?

    Our outward appearance affects the way we feel inside. In professional situations, don’t you feel more self-assured when you are wearing flattering, pulled-together business clothes? Aren’t you more likely to state your opinion when you are comfortable in your own skin?

    When encountering someone for the first time, don’t you feel better when you are having a good hair day or have cleared up a recent bout of acne? Blind dates are brutal when you don’t feel at the top of your game.

    Attractive clothing, well-groomed hair, and a fit body boost self-esteem for most Boise folks. But do you know what people notice before any of these features? Your face. Specifically, your smile and eyes. Multiple studies have shown that beautiful teeth and eyes immediately capture attention. Now, it’s difficult to change your eyes unless you get colored contacts. But unforgettable smiles are within reach because Boise dentists can work miracles with revolutionary cosmetic dentistry.

    With specialized training, finely honed skills, modern equipment, and quality lab services, experienced dentists can turn unattractive smiles into stunning first-impressions using a variety of technologically-advanced cosmetic dental procedures. Blaisdell Family Dentistry patients who have received smile redesigns report feeling more confident, more attractive, more effective at work, and happier in their relationships. Some even say that they take more risks and observe more success.

    If you are unhappy with your smile, you are probably not aware of the impact it has had on your confidence and self-image. Don’t hide behind an unappealing smile any longer. Call Blaisdell Family Dentistry at 208-922-6902 today to schedule an informative cosmetic dental consultation.

  • How Bright Can You Shine?

    Bright Smiles In Meridian

    Hello Boise! Do you want brighter, whiter teeth? Most Meridian residents notice their teeth dulling as the years go by, but some foods, drinks, and even mouthwashes can stain teeth at any age.

    OTC tooth whitening products like kits, strips, or toothpastes may slightly lighten stains, but for a truly sensational smile, see Lynn R. Blaisdell!

    If you have dental veneers, bonding, or bridges, teeth whitening bleach will not impact the stains and your whitened natural teeth may make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Blaisdell Family Dentistry, we can advise you about new dental work, including veneers or bondings, if these have discolored with age.

    Remember, anything that can stain a white t-shirt can stain teeth.

    Fortunately, brushing after meals can keep stains at bay, however after consuming acidic foods or drinks, just rinse your mouth with water. Brushing right away can erode enamel.

    Boise in-office teeth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home whitening kits are also available at Blaisdell Family Dentistry and can produce remarkable results over time.

    For more specifics about a younger and brighter smile, contact our friendly dental team for a smile brightening consultation today!

    We provide the highest quality general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry including veneers, crowns, root canals, and teeth whitening. Ask us about financing options.
