Dental Veneers Baton Rouge

Dental Veneers Baton Rouge Louisiana has produced some incredibly attractive faces, including Reese Witherspoon, Britney Spears, and Harry Connick, Jr. Celebrities like these are known for their gorgeous grins, yet many owe their smile perfection to dental veneers. Women and men in the Baton Rouge area can get the same star treatment from Dr. Kurt LeJeune.

What veneers can correct

Dental veneers are extremely versatile. This technique brings amazing symmetry to the smile, by addressing:
  • Deep discoloration that does not respond to professional whitening.
  • Enamel chips, cracks, pits, or bumps.
  • Teeth that look too short, worn down, or have unusual shape.
  • Gaps, uneven spacing, or minor misalignment.

Direct veneers

In dentistry, the term “direct” refers to treatments completed in the dentist’s office.
Direct veneers are coverings shaped from composite resin bonding material, adhered to the front (visible) surfaces of “smile teeth.” The material is shaded to match your smile or improve upon it. Minimal preparation of teeth is needed for bonding, so this is a conservative, economical, efficient procedure.

Indirect veneers

Indirect veneers are designed by Dr. LeJeune, and fabricated at an off-site dental laboratory. They are made of strong, lustrous porcelain or pressed ceramic for an unsurpassed esthetic that resists stains.

This is a two-visit procedure. Teeth are shaped by removing a small amount of surface enamel, to allow veneers to fit snugly and look natural. Impressions are taken and provided to the lab, along with precise measurements and shading information. Prepped teeth are protected with a temporary covering. You return to Cypress Dental in two to three weeks. Interim veneers are removed, teeth are laser-sanitized, and final veneers bonded into place.

Veneers have an advantage over porcelain crowns – much less tooth structure must be removed for this minimally invasive technique.
