Six Month Smiles® combines proven orthodontic treatment methods and state-of-the-art technology to move your teeth quickly, safely, and less visibly than traditional braces.

The Benefits of Six Month Smiles
- 6–9 Month Treatment Times
- Conservative & Predictable Results

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile but worried that metal braces are the only way to straighten your teeth, Dr. Walker has a solution for you! With Invisalign aligner therapy, those bars and brackets are a thing of the past. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made plastic trays, known as “aligners,” to gradually and comfortably reposition your teeth. There are no metal brackets or wires poking your mouth and no irritating rubber bands rubbing your cheeks.
Invisalign is the perfect orthodontic solution for adults and older teens. Important meeting coming up? Getting ready for a school dance? No problem! You can temporarily take out your aligners for special occasions without affecting your treatment results.
Schedule your Invisalign consultation today and let Dr. Walker determine if Invisalign can help you get the straight smile you’ve always wanted.
If you’re missing teeth, recovering from a dental injury, or struggling with a chronic dental condition, preventive care might not be enough to keep your smile looking and functioning its best. Dr. Walker provides a number of restorative treatments that will have you smiling, laughing, and eating your favorite foods again in no time!

- Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings
- Natural-Looking Crowns & Bridges

Advanced Technology for Exceptional Care
At Lumber River Dental, we know that using the most efficient and effective dental technologies makes your time with us more comfortable and affordable. This is why we employ state-of-the-art technology, modern amenities, and advanced diagnostic and treatment equipment in all areas of our practice.
Advanced Technology & Amenities
In addition to being faster than conventional X-rays, digital X-rays also emit significantly less radiation and require no sharp X-ray film. With just a few small digital sensors, our Lumberton dental team can get a clear and precise view of your teeth, sinuses, and upper and lower jaws.
The Diagnodent® laser precisely detects tooth decay in its early stages—often before it can be recognized by other means. Fillings for cavities that are caught early are usually smaller, which allows Dr. Walker to use minimally invasive filling techniques and preserve more of your natural tooth. Additionally, the low-intensity Diagnodent laser enables us to monitor areas of concern without repeated X-rays.
Our intraoral camera is a small diagnostic tool that allows us to give you a virtual tour of your mouth! Images of the interior of your mouth are transmitted instantly from the camera to the computer screen, so you can see what we see during your exam. We want you to feel informed every step of the way so you can make smart choices for your oral health.
The Isolite® system has a soft, flexible mouthpiece that allows you rest your jaw during treatment. Isolite also illuminates your mouth from the inside, eliminating shadows and giving our Lumberton dental team a clearer view of our work. With this revolutionary system, long dental visits and the aching jaw that comes with them are a thing of the past!
The versatility of our soft laser gives Dr. Walker the ability to perform many complex soft tissue procedures right here in our Lumberton dental office, including cosmetic gum reshaping (for gummy smiles) and gum infection therapy. Your days of visiting dental specialists all over town are history!
