A smile that has cosmetic imperfections, pervasive dental stains and physical defects can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance. If your smile could stand some improvement, you should consider scheduling an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Ronald D. Walker.

After assessing the severity of the cosmetic imperfections and the general health of your teeth, he might suggest enhancing your front teeth with dental veneers. These are thin shells made from dental grade porcelain or a special composite resin. They will be designed and created in a professional dental lab to provide you with significantly whiter teeth.  

The treatment process starts with Dr. Ronald D. Walker creating a detailed impression of each tooth that will receive a veneer. A small amount of enamel will be removed from your tooth to help the cement hold the veneers in place. Keep in mind that veneers are not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, and can be damaged or stained. You will need to continue to brush and floss your teeth as always, and if your veneer should come off, your dentist can reattach or replace it.

If you live in the Oro Valley, Arizona area and you are struggling with an unattractive smile, you should call 520-297-2511 to set up a consultation with the dental office of Dr. Ronald D. Walker, DDS.
