  • 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.

(See http://www.aacd.com for complete survey results.)

    Our smile makeover patients who have undergone restorative and cosmetic dentistry at Blaisdell Family Dentistry in Boise have experienced this phenomenon firsthand. They have expressed that they not only feel great about their looks, they are more confident in professional and social situations. Another benefit: they also feel more appealing to the opposite gender.

We enjoy using our years of training and experience to provide premium cosmetic dentistry for our patients in the Nampa and Meridian area. We are passionate about developing a custom treatment plan for each Boise dental patient. Some of our Sun Valley patients had lived with misaligned or crooked teeth for years.

  • Beautiful Teeth Without Breaking The Bank

    affordable teeth whitening Boise

    At Blaisdell Family Dentistry in Boise, our smile makeover patients believe that life-changing cosmetic dentistry is a worthwhile investment. Indeed, for most people, the value of a healthy, attractive smile cannot be measured in dollars. We acknowledge, however, that cosmetic dentistry is not cheap.

    Do you have to spend thousands of dollars to upgrade your smile? Actually, no. Today’s post focuses on the most affordable cosmetic dental procedures.

    We offer the following services:

    porcelain veneers
    prepless veneers
    teeth whitening

    Dental Bonding
    In many cases, dental bonding can be used to correct a tooth that has been chipped.

    When Lynn R. Blaisdell repairs a tooth with dental bonding, a pliable resin material is applied to the tooth. Drs. Blaisdell expertly molds the material to create the desired shape. The resin is then hardened using a special light. After hardening, Drs. Blaisdell performs any necessary trimming and shaping followed by a final polishing.

    Dental bonding is typically less pricey than porcelain veneers or dental crowns. Call us at 208-922-6902 to discuss cosmetic dental financing options.

    Beware of brand-new Boise area practices that advertise uncommonly low prices for dental bonding, veneers, or dental implants. The skill and artistic ability necessary to attain minuscule tolerances should not be undertaken by a beginner. Thoroughly research any new cosmetic dentist you are considering for any cosmetic dental procedures or complete smile makeover.

    Tooth Whitening
    Most Boise people are aware that there are several different tooth whitening methods. Lynn R. Blaisdell recommends scheduling a tooth whitening consultation to discuss your options. Even inexpensive OTC tooth bleaching systems can be misused and result in tooth sensitivity, damage to tooth enamel, and irregular coloration.

    Regarding the cost of teeth whitening: if you decide on an at-home system from a drugstore, you may have to buy several packages to obtain even slight whitening. In-office whitening or a take home system from our office may be more affordable in the long run.

  • Affordable Boise Cosmetic Dentistry

    Affordable Boise Cosmetic Dentistry Will your Idaho dental insurance cover Boise cosmetic dental procedures? Many dentistry patients assume their dental insurance won’t cover any cosmetic dental procedures. This is probably true for tooth bleaching  or first time dental bonding. However, many dental insurance plans and dental supplemental plans cover orthodontia and any treatment needed to repair damage from an injury. Medical insurance and worker’s compensation plans may also cover injury treatment.

    Some dental insurance plans cover replacement porcelain veneers in certain circumstances. Check with your carrier for benefit specifics if you need replacement veneers due to deterioration. We can then discuss dental treatment options such as replacement veneers or porcelain crowns. When the work is completed, we may be able to help you submit your dental claim form if your plan requires one.

    If you are in need of any kind of dental treatment; from a cleaning to major restorative work, come in to Blaisdell Family Dentistry on 8877 W Hackamore Dr in Boise. You can meet our friendly team, undergo a thorough evaluation and discuss financing options. Even if you do not have Idaho dental insurance, let’s talk. Top quality Boise dental treatment is a wise investment and may be more affordable than you think.

    Blaisdell Family Dentistry has been proudly serving Boise and Meridian residents since 1981. Blaisdell Family Dentistry is a network dental provider for many Idaho dental insurance plans. We offer the following services:

    porcelain veneers
    prepless veneers
    teeth whitening
