Dental veneers provide an option for imperfect teeth
An imperfect smile can happen to anyone and gradually develops over many years, almost going unnoticeable until an unsightly selfie or group photo catches you off-guard. Staining foods, acid reflux, clenching, nervous chewing habits like finger nail-biting can impact the appearance of one or more teeth and cause patients to feel self-conscious about the way they look. A cosmetic and restorative dentist such as Dr. David Frank of Walden Dental can enhance and refurbish smiles to address these common dental problems like chipped, cracked, or stained teeth. Dental veneers are a great conservative treatment that preserves most of your tooth structure without excessive tooth removal resulting in an amazing natural look and feel. Walden Dental aims to create a smile that is authentic and looks like it was always a part of you. Your teeth and appearance are reflections of your facial expressions and personality. Dr. Frank and team will customize your smile with chairside artistry blending dentistry’s science with an artist’s canvas to distract the eye from anything other than a natural smile’s beauty.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are extremely thin layers of esthetic porcelain(ceramic) that cover the fronts of your teeth that show off when you smile.
How long do dental veneers last?
Dental veneers will last decades or longer with proper care and routine dental visits. Walden Dental encourages and reinforces the protection of natural enamel and porcelain veneers with nightguards to ensure veneers and teeth can have the best chance to last a lifetime.

What makes Walden Dental different from other dental offices with veneers
Dental veneers require a thin portion of natural enamel to be removed from the front of your tooth. Traditionally, goopy impressions are made and sent to an out-of-dental practice laboratory to create the veneer itself, which requires you to wait 3-4 weeks while wearing ill-fitting, non-color matched temporaries that scare many people that those temporaries may fall out at the worst time possible.
Those worries are totally removed at Walden Dental. Dr. Frank and team mastered the art and science of in-office same day cosmetic dentistry and veneer fabrication without ever needing to send your final treatment to a dental laboratory. Our CEREC in-office customization of your veneers and smile completely remove the pain and dread of interacting or eating in public with fragile temporaries, one bite away from coming apart. The relief and excitement of getting veneers and a new smile in one-day is what Walden Dental is best known for and all about.
Who is a good candidate for veneers?
The best candidates for veneers are those with straight teeth that aren’t satisfied with whitening results from in-office whitening and/or take home products. If permanent stain removal is your goal, porcelain veneers are the solution. The veneer will not stain, will never dull, and will always stay the original color you choose to make your smile truly ideal for you. Even if you grind/clench, you may be a candidate if you comply with the use of a nightguard to protect your natural teeth and veneers.
The team at Walden Dental encourages patients interested in transforming the appearance of their smile to consider the advantages that porcelain veneers provide. Book Online or call our office located in Austin, TX at (512) 883-8450, to learn more.
