If an unappealing smile has you feeling awkward in social situations, Dr. Steven Walker may recommend dental veneers to beautify your teeth. Our dentist at Steven P. Walker, DDS has the experience, training, and tools to create custom-made dental veneers to improve your smile’s overall appearance.

A dental veneer is a thin, porcelain shell designed to fit over the front of a tooth and cover unwanted cosmetic flaws such as chipped, stained, too short, or slightly crooked teeth. The greatest benefit of porcelain material is that it can be shaded to match your natural tooth structure or even make your teeth look whiter.

Your dental veneers are created in two separate appointments at Steven P. Walker, DDS. First, Dr. Steven Walker examines your smile and takes dental X-rays to determine if you have sufficient, healthy enamel to support the porcelain dental veneers. If a tooth lacks strong enamel or has been compromised by previous dental work, our dentist might recommend a dental crown instead.

Next, we will create an accurate impression of your smile, which we will submit to the dental lab to have your dental veneers custom fabricated. Once the dental lab has completed your veneers, we will contact you to schedule your second appointment. During this visit, Dr. Steven Walker will remove a tiny amount of tooth enamel from the front of each treated tooth and then cement your dental veneers in place.
