  • Dental Veneers: 7 Fast Fixes For Boise Smiles

    Boise Affordable Dentistry

    Hi! Welcome to the Blaisdell Family Dentistry dental blog. Today we are focusing on fabulous veneers, which are used extensively in cosmetic dentistry.

    Dental veneers (also called laminates) are custom made to permanently cover the front part of one or more teeth. Wafer-thin, super-strong veneers can correct a variety of problems including:

    1. Chips
    2. Cracks
    3. Stains
    4. Teeth that are misshapen
    5. Teeth that are too short
    6. Teeth that are misaligned
    7. Gaps between teeth

    When you get veneers, your dentist will first make a model of your teeth. Then, a dental technician uses the model to create the veneers. In some veneer procedures, a small amount of the enamel from the face of the tooth has to be removed so the veneers can be placed. In such cases, the procedure is irreversible.

    If you are in the Sun Valley area and are looking for a family, general or cosmetic dentist, give Blaisdell Family Dentistry a call. My name is Dr. Lynn R. Blaisdell and I have been practicing advanced dentistry in Boise, Idaho since 1981. The art and science of cosmetic dentistry is my passion.

    Please call 208-922-6902 and a member of our friendly staff can answer any questions you have about veneers, teeth whitening, invisible braces, sedation dentistry, pediatric dentistry, general dental care, or smile makeovers.

  • What’s The Latest With Veneers?

    Boise Prepless Veneers One of the latest breakthroughs in Boise cosmetic dentistry is prepless veneers. Though thousands of Nampa and Meridian smile restoration patients who have received traditional veneers are happy with the results, some Idaho dental patients have delayed this procedure because they do not want to lose healthy tooth structure.

    Prepless veneers are a less-invasive procedure for transforming Boise smiles. New  prepless veneers at Blaisdell Family Dentistry are incredibly thin shells which adhere to the face of teeth and require no removal of tooth enamel. Most prepless veneers are about the thickness of two pieces of paper. Because the color is built into the veneers (instead of being applied after fabrication), they look like your natural teeth–only better!

    Our experienced Idaho ceramists are skilled artists. They create each custom veneer with the optimum shape, color and thickness for your new smile. Another great feature of the Blaisdell Family Dentistry prepless veneers application procedure is that it requires no anesthesia or drilling.

    If you are embarrassed by misaligned, discolored or broken teeth, prepless veneers may be a smile restoration solution that you can feel good about.

    Call Blaisdell Family Dentistry to learn more about prepless veneers. It is the first step toward your dazzling new smile!

  • Porcelain Veneers And Instant Orthodontics For Boise

    Boise Porcelain Veneers and Instant Orthodontics If you have been paying attention to the Boise orthodontics scene in recent years, you probably know about invisible braces and speed braces. These new teeth straightening procedures have been welcomed by many people, especially Boise adults who want an alternative to traditional metal braces.

    There’s more good news for Nampa residents who want to straighten their teeth. How about ‘instant orthodontics’?

    If you want immediate teeth straightening, you can get beautiful porcelain veneers from Blaisdell Family Dentistry!

    Lynn R. & Craig Blaisdell at Blaisdell Family Dentistry can help you determine if porcelain veneers are for you.

    In addition to correcting minor tooth misalignment, porcelain veneers are used to whiten teeth and restore chipped teeth in Meridian and Sun Valley. Porcelain veneers are attached to the front of teeth and often require no removal of healthy tooth structure. Another advantage? They are usually less expensive than complete crown restorations but look just as natural.

    To schedule a consultation, call Blaisdell Family Dentistry at 208-922-6902. Porcelain veneers may be the best way for you to receive a smile makeover at a fraction of the cost.
