  • Teeth Whitening In Boise, From Blaisdell Family Dentistry

    Whitening vs Bleaching At Blaisdell Family Dentistry In Boise

    Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental service at Blaisdell Family Dentistry in Boise, and indeed in the rest of the United States.

    Results vary, but most of our patients get significant lightening that lasts up to a year. They also say that a whiter smile elevates their self confidence and can take years of wear and discoloration away to reveal a brighter smile.

    Teeth whitening and teeth bleaching, however, describe two different things. Surface cracks and stains ensue on tooth enamel, exposing the yellower dentin below the surface. Discoloration can be the result of the natural aging process, illness, genetics, or dark colored food or drink. Foods and beverages that are both dark colored and acidic— like wine, coffee, and tomato sauce—have even stronger staining power.

    Teeth whitener can refer to any product used to remove stains from tooth enamel: toothpaste, DIY strips, and some mouthwashes are safe and affordable and can whiten teeth with continued, regular use. What they cannot do is match professional whitening treatment.

    The term “bleaching” means a teeth whitening product that contains a form of bleach, either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, in varying concentrations.

  • Crooked Teeth And Cavities: Clear Braces in Boise

    fast braces Boise

    Many dental patients in and around Boise believe that cosmetic dentists only change the look of your teeth. At Blaisdell Family Dentistry in Boise, we provide cosmetic dentistry, but are equally concerned with the dental health of our patients – maybe even more than the appearance of their teeth.

    Your ability to clean your teeth is enhanced when your teeth are straight and uncrowded. But even patients wearing traditional braces can be thoroughly cleaned with water flossing.

    When uneven teeth begin to crowd together, it becomes difficult to make vital daily cleanings effective. And, when your teeth aren’t cleaned properly, problems with plaque build-up, cavities, and gum disease generally ensue.

    For those patients who would benefit from a corrected bite, we offer Invisalign clear braces. Unlike traditional braces, they are removable. They come out when you brush your teeth, and come out at mealtime. And because they are clear, they are almost undetectable by those around you.

    If you are curious if your teeth are crowding or if your bite is not aligned, please visit Blaisdell Family Dentistry in Boise. We’ll see whether you’re a good candidate for Invisalign clear braces. We also provide a range of cosmetic dentistry services.
