Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Enhance Your Smile
Take pride in showing off your beautiful new teeth. Veneers are extremely versatile and can conceal a wide range of dental flaws at once, resulting in a dazzling, bright, and healthy-looking smile.
Improve Your Confidence
Your smile affects the impression you make on the world around you. People with nice teeth are less hesitant to smile for pictures, laugh out loud, and speak in public. By concealing your cosmetic concerns, you can enhance your smile and feel more confident!
Enjoy Long-Lasting Results
Porcelain veneers are made with ultra-strong, medical-grade porcelain, making them one of the longest-lasting cosmetic dentistry treatments. Porcelain is also stain-resistant, meaning that your veneers will retain their bright natural shade for their entire life-span. In some cases, veneers can last up to a decade before they require replacement.

Discuss Your Candidacy & Concerns with Our Team
We believe that proper planning is key to the success of your dental treatment. Even if you meet all of the candidacy requirements and simply want a nicer smile, there may be various treatments that are better suited to your needs.
During your consultation at our Albuquerque office, we will ask several questions to determine if this treatment is right for you:
- What do you dislike about your smile?

- Why are you seeking dental treatment?
Based on your responses, we will determine if veneers can truly meet your goals. Once we determine that veneers are the right choice, your new smile will be just one appointment away.

Maintaining Your Veneers
Practice Proper Oral Hygiene
Never underestimate the importance of practicing good oral hygiene and diligent brushing and flossing habits. Not only will you protect your natural teeth and extend the lifespan of your cosmetic treatments, but you will save yourself thousands of dollars in restorative work that can be needed to treat decay and infections.
Protect Your Tooth Enamel
Porcelain is less porous than tooth enamel and will not absorb the color from dark-colored beverages and tobacco products. While your porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, your natural teeth are not. To ensure your smile remains a bright consistent shade, refrain from consuming food and drinks that have the potential to stain your natural teeth.
Avoid Excessive Force
While porcelain is inherently strong and durable, we always recommend treating your dental veneer with care. It is best to avoid opening things with your teeth or biting your nails, as they can lead to erosion of both your veneers and natural teeth.
