Why are porcelain veneers such a popular cosmetic dentistry option?
Boost Your Confidence in Two Visits
Veneers are also a highly efficient cosmetic dentistry treatment. In some cases, they can be used to resolve minor misalignment issues, allowing patients to achieve their desired results in about two weeks as opposed to several months of orthodontic treatment. In addition, the treatment can also offer a significant boost in self-confidence. Many patients who undergo treatment are far more eager to laugh and smile.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Like dental crowns, porcelain veneers are custom-crafted restorations, designed to match the shade and fit of your surrounding teeth. However, rather than covering the entire tooth structure, a veneer covers only the front surface of the tooth. These restorations are ultra-thin for maximum comfort, but since they are fabricated from high-quality dental materials, they are also durable and long-lasting. The porcelain in dental veneers mirrors the shine of natural enamel, delivering an incredibly lifelike result. Best of all, veneers are stain-resistant and can be properly maintained with routine brushing and flossing, as well as regular check-ups and cleanings.
This patient's smile was transformed thanks to porcelain veneers.

Porcelain Veneers Candidacy Good candidates for this form of dentistry have...
Dental veneers require the removal of some tooth enamel. If for any reason you cannot afford to have enamel removed without threatening the health of your tooth, you will need to consider an alternative solution such as dental bonding.
Porcelain veneers are designed to cover imperfections that are cosmetic in nature. In addition, an issue such as pronounced misalignment might be better treated with orthodontics.
Excellent Oral Health
If you have tooth decay, gum disease, or other issues affecting your oral health, they must be resolved before receiving porcelain veneers or any other cosmetic procedure. A healthy foundation is essential for a long-lasting aesthetic upgrade.

What does it cost to upgrade my smile with veneers?
Determining the Cost of Porcelain Veneers
The three most significant cost variables are:
- The extent of treatment needed to meet your goals
- The amount of treatment you need before receiving veneers
- The type of material used to create your veneers
It is important to understand that because this is an elective procedure, it does not qualify for insurance coverage. However, Dr. Slaman offers in-office 90-day financing to help you budget for this treatment. The staff at our Albuquerque office can also help you coordinate low-interest and interest-free financing through CareCredit®.

Without a doubt the best dental practice in the Albuquerque area. Dr. Slaman is highly competent and personable. His staff is, without exception, kind, considerate and just plain nice! The whole experience is geared to putting the patient at ease knowing care is first rate. I felt like I was treated to the VIP level at all times. It is rare to find an entire organization where you can’t find a single suggestion for improvement, but the Dr. Slaman team is as near to perfect as you can get!
Dr. Slaman and his staff are so professional and caring. Dr. Slaman made time to fix a chip in a front tooth during a routine exam. He could have asked me to schedule another time to get this done, but instead he took care of this for me during the exam. I appreciated his respect for my time and left feeling, and looking so much better. Also want to thank his front staff for excellent communications regarding scheduling and billing. They are fabulous!View On Google
