State-of-the-Art Technology For Stunning Smiles

Our Albuquerque, NM, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kelly, is committed to investing in the latest dental technology that allows us to provide top-of-the-line results. Here's just a few of the ways our practice provides patients with state-of-the-art dental care:

Hands-Free Fabrication

Our partner lab fabricates many of our crowns and other restorations digitally, removing the potential for human error. This also means a swift turnaround: your permanent restoration will be ready in just five to seven days. Technician-crafted restorations typically take up to three weeks. 

No Messy Impressions

We use an iTero® 3D scanner to capture detailed digital impressions of your mouth in seconds. This means there's no need for messy putty impressions that are uncomfortable and leave a bad taste in your mouth.

Precise Planning

We use cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) to create digital X-rays of your teeth, jaw, and facial structure. This allows Dr. Kelly to precisely plan advanced procedures, such as the location, angle, and position for dental implant placement. 

Nervous about the Dentist? We Offer Sedation Options

Are you excited about the prospect of a new smile, but hesitant because of a fear of the dentist? Dental anxiety is extremely common and something we often see at our Albuquerque, New Mexico, office. We strive to provide a calm, stress-free environment for all of our patients by offering sedation dentistry to ease any nerves you may have so you can get the dental care your need.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is administered through a mask and induces a relaxed, euphoric state. Once the procedure is over and the mask is removed, all effects wear off, and you'll be able to drive home on your own.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation consists of taking medication before the procedure. Patients feel drowsy and relaxed and may have trouble remembering their procedure. A friend or loved one is required to drive the patient home.

Find the Perfect Procedure For You

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can hide small chips and cracks, internal discoloration, inconsistent shaping, and slight misalignment issues, creating an appearance of symmetry and health. You could be astounded by the tremendous difference just one or two veneers can make in the overall appearance of your smile. Our veneers cost $1,200 to $1,500 per tooth.

Teeth Whitening

A number of factors can cause your teeth to become stained. Genetics, the aging process, and various foods and beverages can diminish the brightness of your smile. We offer both in-office and at-home whitening treatments that can eliminate these stains and accentuate everything you love about your smile.

Smile Makeover

Our cosmetic dentist can combine several cosmetic and restorative treatments to give you a bright, symmetrical smile that rejuvenates your entire appearance. In some cases, this approach can be incorporated into TMJ disorder treatment, giving you a smile that looks as good as it feels.

Learn More about Smile Makeovers

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is an effective solution for a missing, damaged, or decayed tooth. Through advanced dental technology, these restorations are stronger and more natural-looking than ever before. All-porcelain crowns can also be used to provide you with a more balanced smile. Many patients at our Albuquerque, New Mexico, office choose dental implants and crowns to treat missing teeth.

Learn More About Dental Crowns


Dr. Kelly has a deep understanding of the jaw compared to the typical dentist. He takes into account the entire mouth and joint system for orthodontics to help patients achieve a straighter smile and correct an improper bite or misalignment. His goal is to achieve lasting results that continue even after the braces are removed, showing his commitment to providing the highest level of dental care.

Learn More About Orthodontics


Invisalign is a special orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners instead of metal wires and brackets. This simplified route to a straight, healthy smile allows you to enjoy any and all foods, and you can continue to use your usual brushing and flossing techniques to keep your smile clean. If you have mild to moderate misalignment, you may be a candidate for Invisalign, which is designed to fit your lifestyle with the utmost comfort.

Patients Recommend Our Care

"Dr. Kelly is a wonderful dentist, he is the best I have ever had. I would recommend him to everyone." Patricia Ortiz, 5-Star Google Review

Dermal Fillers
and BOTOX Cosmetic

Say Goodbye to Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Woman receiving BOTOX injections

We most often use injectables to relieve the symptoms of bruxism and TMJ disorders. However, BOTOX Cosmetic® and dermal fillers can also help make wrinkles and lines disappear.

With special training in esthetic dentistry, Dr. Kelly can utilize these two treatments either individually or in a strategic combination to help you look your best. Combining injectables with cosmetic dental work such as whitening or veneers can enhance your appearance even more.

Injections can be completed in less than 15 minutes, making them a quick and easy way to rejuvenate your appearance. Our highly trained dentist has a thorough understanding of facial structure and anatomy, so you can expect beautiful results.

Financing and Payment Options

However, our dental office accepts financing through LendingPoint™ to help patients manage the cost of cosmetic dentistry treatments. Our Albuquerque dental practice also accepts Discover®, MasterCard®, and Visa® credit cards.

Restorative Treatment Options To Restore Your Oral Function

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance of your smile. If issues such as missing teeth affect your ability to eat or speak, restorative treatment options such as dental implants may be a better option for you.

Dr. Kelly is not just a skilled cosmetic dentist, but is also experienced with treatment options such as dental implants to restore your oral health and function. Combine implants with a dental crown to replace a single missing tooth, or dentures or dental bridges for multiple missing teeth.

Our Albuquerque dental practice offers a wide range of treatment options to fit all your dental care needs to give you a healthy and beautiful smile.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

Does insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?

Insurance covers treatments that meet practical needs, such as fillings and cleanings, but when it comes to services that just make your smile look better, you can expect to pay out of pocket. But don't let that discourage you—LendingPoint financing makes it possible to budget for the smile of your dreams on virtually any budget. We'll help determine if this option is right for you.

I have many oral health issues, but I want my smile to look better, too. Can Dr. Kelly meet my goals?

Yes! Because he leads a practice that does it all, from complex restorative work to complete smile makeovers, he can create and provide a treatment plan that not only benefits your oral health and function, but also gives you the winning smile you want. Your goals will steer the treatment, and Dr. Kelly will make sure the end result exceeds your expectations.

I've got an event coming up soon, and I want to look amazing. Can Dr. Kelly help me?

Yes! Whitening can be performed in one appointment, and veneers can be placed in just a couple of office visits. The main roadblock you may potentially face is any oral health issues that need attention before moving ahead with cosmetic work. As long as your smile is ready, Dr. Kelly can absolutely accommodate patients who need to look their best on an expedited timeline.
