A DDS and recipient of the 2015 New Dentist Award, Dr. Nick Rauber performs aesthetic procedures like veneers for patients interested in a better smile. A dentist active in his broader community, Dr. Nick Rauber established Swollfest Fishing Rodeo, a Louisiana-based not-for-profit organization that has raised over $1,200,000 for health-related causes.
When patients go to an oral health care provider like Dr. Nicholas Rauber and request veneers, it is usually because they have problems that negatively impact the appearance of their teeth. For instance, the surface of their teeth may be pitted, chipped, or discolored. Though the cost of veneers varies, patients can expect great results.
Veneers can help address tooth defects by replacing discolored or fractured enamel with a very thin layer of porcelain. In some situations, the procedure does not require anesthesia and involves a dentist carefully excising a portion of the natural tooth enamel in preparation for the placement of the veneers.
Following that, the dentist will make special tooth measurements and send those measurements to a lab, which in turn constructs the veneers. For the interim period while the lab does its work, patients are fitted with temporary veneers. When the final product is ready, the dentist bonds the veneers to teeth with a special adhesive.
