Common Myths About Boise Family Cosmetic Dentistry

Common Myths about Boise Family Cosmetic Dentistry Myth #1: Cosmetic Dentistry is Never Necessary for a Healthy Smile

Many so-called Boise cosmetic dental procedures are not solely cosmetic. Nampa dental procedures such as tooth replacement prevent many potential problems such as tooth movement, bone loss and difficulty chewing and speaking.

Myth #2: A Meridian Dental Bridge is the Only Way to Replace a Missing Tooth

Dental bridges have been used for many years with success. However, dental implants are often a better choice for replacing one or more missing teeth. Dental implants have many critical advantages for Sun Valley dental patients. They feel like natural teeth, they are stronger, and they are easier to clean than dental bridges. Tooth implants can also be used to anchor dentures or partial dentures.

Myth #3: At-Home Kits are as Effective for Meridian Tooth Whitening Than a Professional Dental Solution

At Blaisdell Family Dentistry, we offer our Boise dental patients teeth whitening treatments that are often more effective than at-home kits. At-home kits may remove surface stains, but they do not provide optimum results and can often lead to uneven coloring.

Myth #4: Dental Bonding is the Best Way to Fix a Chipped Tooth.

Dental bonding can restore the shape of a tooth, but may not be the best long-term solution. If you have a damaged tooth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Call us at 208-377-9696 to set up an appointment to discuss veneers.

Myth #5: Nampa Braces are the Only Way to Correct Crooked Teeth

Braces are often part of a transforming dental makeover for our Boise teens and adults alike. However, if your teeth are only slightly crooked, lumineers can reshape your teeth and help you achieve a stunning smile. And the best thing about veneers? They offer quick results!
