Porcelain Veneers With Dr. Kelly
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Wish you could mask stains, chipping, or gaps? What about a combination of concerns? Our veneers are extremely versatile and can conceal a wide range of dental flaws at once, resulting in a dazzling, bright, and healthy-looking smile.
People that like their 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!
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, so your veneers will retain their bright natural shade for their entire life span. In some cases, they can last up to a decade.

How Our In-Office Veneers Are Made Dr. Kelly Explains the Process
"We design the fillings or crowns or veneers in the computer,
and then we have a CAD/CAM mill, or a technology that cuts
our veneers or crowns out of a solid block of porcelain. We do
that right in the office. The patient can watch it being done if they
like, and we get that done in about an hour or two depending on
the individual case." Dr. Kelly

How Long Will My Veneers Last?
Veneers are an immediate and incredibly long-lasting form of tooth enhancement. The average lifespan for a porcelain veneer is 10 to 15 years, but they can last even longer with proper maintenance and dental care.
Maintaining Your Veneers
Practicing 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.
Protecting 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 bright, refrain from consuming food and drinks that have the potential to stain your natural teeth.
Avoiding 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.

FAQs About Veneers At Our Albuquerque Office
Can I have a veneer made for just one tooth?
Yes, you can. The beauty of veneers is that they can be placed over one tooth, several teeth, or all of your front teeth.
Why is enamel shaving necessary?
Enamel shaving is another one of the crucial techniques we use to focus on details big and small. It allows our dentist to create a precise fit, and it also prevents your veneers from looking oversized.
Will my veneers blend in with my natural teeth?
Yes, they will. Thanks to our premium veneer materials and our dentist's careful eye, we will specifically match your veneers to the exact shades of your anterior teeth. This results in a seamless smile from all angles.
