Cosmetic Dentistry

If you’ve ever wanted to make a change so your smile can be the best it can be, Humphries Dental can help. We offer multiple cosmetic options that will help boost your self-confidence!

Teeth Whitening

The smile is a precious gift that no one should be embarrassed to share. Natural staining and discoloration can dampen our willingness to share this gesture, and Humphries Dental wants to help you regain your smile with our professional teeth whitening treatments done in office.

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is quite simply the process of lightening the color of your teeth. Teeth naturally yellow over time and can become stained by certain foods, drinks, or medication, making professional whitening one of the more popular treatments provided by dentists.

What is Zoom!®  In-Office Whitening?

Zoom!® is a highly effective in-office whitening treatment that combines a gel-like whitening agent and the innovative Zoom!® light to produce dazzling smiles in a single treatment. The combination of these two components allows oxygen to penetrate deeper through the enamel and break down stains more effectively. As part of our commitment to improving the smile of our patients, our office is excited to offer complimentary custom-made trays for your Zoom!®  in-office whitening treatment.

What is an Opalescence® Take-Home Whitening Kit?

Opalescence® take-home kits are convenient appliances that hold a whitening gel and are temporarily adhered to your teeth. In short 30-minute treatments, you can start seeing brighter results after just a couple of applications-- all from the comfort of your own home.

What are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening Treatments?

Professional teeth whitening treatments are more reliably effective than over-the-counter alternatives. At Humphries Dental, we offer custom-made trays, which means you’ll receive an individualized treatment and not the same one-size-fits-all appliances you’d find at a store. When you come into our office for professional teeth whitening, you can enjoy:

  • Immediate results
  • Enhanced confidence and self-esteem
  • A safe and expertly supervised procedure

At Humphries Dental, we believe everyone should have a smile they can be proud of. Unfortunately, even if you brush and floss regularly, there are some dental conditions that just can’t be helped without assistance from professionals. Chipping and staining of the teeth can become a source of insecurity that keep you from smiling. Luckily, dental veneers offer the perfect solution for restoring the beauty of your natural smile.

What are Dental Veneers?

Think of a veneer as a tooth enhancer. These thin layers of porcelain or composite are placed directly onto the facial surface of the tooth to cover imperfections and even change the shape of your teeth.

What is the Process for Getting Dental Veneers?

Before you receive your veneers, the dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to make room for the veneers. Then, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth which will be sent to a lab where the veneers are fabricated. In the final visit, your veneers will be fitted and bonded to your teeth.

What are the Types of Dental Veneers?

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are made out of ceramic material that resembles the color of your tooth much closer than composite veneers. Although more expensive than the alternative, porcelain veneers are also more durable.

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are made of a mixed resin that can be colored to resemble a tooth. They are typically not as expensive and require less material to be removed from the tooth than porcelain veneers.
