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.

In addition to serving patients at his practice, Aesthetic Dentistry Group, Dr. Nick Rauber also spearheads the annual Swollfest Fishing Rodeo, which he founded to raise support and awareness for the American Diabetes Association and Muscular Dystrophy Association. A graduate of the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry, Dr. Rauber recently received professional recognition from the Louisiana Dental Association (LDA).
In April 2015, the professional organization presented Dr. Rauber with its annual New Dentist Award at its 135th House of Delegates held at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. Each year, the LDA recognizes one outstanding dentist for his or her efforts to serve and enrich the wider community. The award program is open to dentists who have practiced for fewer than 10 years and highlights their achievements in the dental profession as well as their community service and civic involvement.
In addition to the quality of his work at Aesthetic Dentistry, the LDA honored Dr. Rauber for his service to organizations such as the LSU School of Dentistry and the Greater Baton Rouge Dental Association. His charitable activities have also supported Give Kids A Smile Day, the LA Mission of Mercy, and the Dental Lifeline Network, as well as numerous philanthropic initiatives beyond the dental sector.
