Are you embarrassed to smile because of imperfect teeth? Porcelain veneers can cover these teeth, masking cosmetic issues.
Our practice provides high-quality porcelain veneers for anyone who lives in or around Lake Charles, DeQuincy, Kinder, and Sulphur, LA.
How can Dr. Jeffery Hennigan and his team revamp your smile with veneers?
The Benefits of Dental Veneers
While dental bonding or teeth whitening can be great for touching up small blemishes, veneers allow our highly trained cosmetic dentists to completely transform your front-facing teeth.
Veneers are ultra-thin, tooth-colored porcelain shells (about the thickness of a fingernail) that are carefully cemented to the surface of teeth. Every veneer we provide is custom-designed, so these prosthetics can cover an incredibly wide range of cosmetic issues.
Our dentists plan every cosmetic procedure very carefully, ensuring that results are as lifelike as possible. In order to produce the most natural-looking smiles, Dr. Hennigan only works with a trusted dental laboratory that fabricates veneers from long-lasting, medical-grade porcelain.
How Do Veneers Work?
Do Porcelain Veneers Ruin Your Teeth?
No. Only a small amount of enamel needs to be removed to slide a porcelain veneer over a tooth. This does not affect the overall structure or integrity of a tooth or a patient's dental health.

Are You a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Be in Good Oral Health
In general, candidates should be in good dental health and be free of conditions like tooth decay or gum disease. If your teeth are severely decayed, you may need to seek an alternative restorative dentistry treatment. During your consultation, our doctors can examine your smile and recommend any procedures necessary to restore your candidacy.
Have Healthy Enamel
Placing a veneer also requires the removal of a small layer of enamel. If patients do not have enamel that can be safely removed, then their teeth cannot be prepared for this treatment. If you are found to not have sufficient enamel, common alternative treatments include dental bonding and dental crowns.
Does it Hurt to Get Veneers?
No. Thanks to modern anesthetic techniques, patients rarely experience pain when getting a custom set of veneers. Even though a little bit of tooth enamel is removed, placing a set of veneers is a non-invasive and virtually painless process.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
The cost of veneers can vary from person to person. On average, an individual dental veneer at our practice costs between $1,100 and $1,400.
Because they are an elective service, veneers are not covered by insurance. However, we offer CareCredit® financing to help patients afford cosmetic dentistry.

Caring for Veneers
Use Non-Abrasive Toothpaste
You should avoid using any type of abrasive toothpaste, as it can affect the look of your veneers.
Refrain from Opening Packages with Your Teeth
Veneers are strong, but the shells should never be used to pry open or tear packages or other objects.
Maintain a Healthy Smile
Maintaining good oral hygiene habits can ensure that your veneers do not become loose or dislodged due to underlying decay. Twice-a-year visits to our dental practice can also ensure that your teeth remain healthy and your veneers remain strong.
Plan for the Future
The shells will eventually need to be replaced. When they do, Dr. Hennigan can perform the replacement procedure at our Lake Charles, Sulphur, Kinder, or DeQuincy dental practices.
Do Veneers Feel Like Real Teeth?
When properly fitted and placed, porcelain veneers should look and feel just like your natural teeth. The porcelain material is quite convincing. In fact, the natural-looking results are one of the reasons veneers are such a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure.
