Are you embarrassed to smile because of imperfect teeth? Porcelain veneers can subtly conceal all manner of cosmetic issues.
Our practice provides high-quality porcelain veneers for anyone who lives in or around Lake Charles, DeQuincy, Kinder, and Sulphur, LA.
Find out how Dr. Jeffery Hennigan and his team can rejuvenate your smile with veneers starting at just $1,100 per tooth.
How Do Veneers Work?
Simply put, a veneer is a "shell" made to cover the entire visible portion of a tooth. Veneers are very thin, typically less than half a millimeter thick, and most commonly made from porcelain.
Because they can be used to conceal chips, cracks, stains, small gaps, and even more, veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment options available.
Though they aren't a permanent treatment, with good care and regular checkups at our dental office in Lake Charles, LA (or any of our other Louisiana offices), a set of veneers can beautify your smile for many years to come.
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 bonded to the surfaces 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.
Do Porcelain Veneers Ruin Your Teeth?
No. Only a small amount of enamel needs to be removed before a porcelain veneer can be bonded to a tooth. This does not affect the overall structure or integrity of the 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 free of conditions like tooth decay or gum disease. If your teeth are severely decayed, we can help you with an appropriate restorative dentistry treatment beforehand. 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 you don't have enough enamel for safe removal, your teeth cannot be prepared for this treatment. Fortunately, an alternative treatment like dental bonding or dental crowns could be a great choice for you.
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. However, if you have dental anxiety or an especially sensitive smile, we are more than happy to provide calming sedation during treatment.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
On average, an individual dental veneer at Lake Area Dentistry costs between $1,100 and $1,400.
Because they are an elective service, veneers are not covered by insurance. However, we accept 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. Take care when flossing with veneers as well. Rough movements can cause the veneer to dislodge from the surface of the tooth.
Refrain From Opening Packages With Your Teeth
Veneers are strong, but once you have them, you should never use your teeth 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.
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.
