Smiles marred by drinking coffee, tea, and wine or smoking brighten two to eight shades under the ministrations of Smile Labs of Boise, a center specializing in teeth whitening. There, patients paint their own smiles with Applia-Brush gel, a hydrogen peroxide-based formula that hydrates teeth more effectively than showering with an open mouth. Cold blue light from an LED lamp then activates the photosensitive gel, accelerating the whitening process so teeth can achieve the perfect snowy color in 15 minutes.
We have been creating beautiful smiles in the Treasure Valley for over 13 years! Our team is led by Dr. Laura Lineberry, who is a Specialist in Orthodontics. As a mother of two, we feel she provides an extra caring touch to our patients!
This practice’s duo of dentists, Drs. Garpetti and Elliott, draw on extensive experience to tend to smiles in need of both general and cosmetic services. Dr. Garpetti followed his dental school education with hospital-based training, gaining advanced knowledge in areas including oral surgery and wearing scrubs. His colleague Dr. Elliott graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine before being awarded an externship to work with special-needs patients.
Together, the professionals pool their resources to cater to patients of all ages with advanced technology such as laser cavity detection, digital x-rays, and intra-oral cameras that never require molars to say cheese. To ensure that visits are as comfortable as possible, the office’s satellite radio headphones pipe in tunes, and video glasses enable patients to watch cable television or movies during treatments.
