The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

ArtboardCreated with Sketch.

Natural Appearance

The porcelain used to make veneers perfectly resembles natural enamel and can be color-matched to the shade of your smile. At any distance and in any light, dental veneers look like real teeth.

Durable Porcelain Material

Porcelain veneers are made to last, allowing you to eat almost anything without worrying about fractures. With good oral hygiene and proper care, veneers can last 10 years or more.

Dramatic Results

Porcelain veneers are incredibly popular in modern cosmetic dentistry. A single dental veneer can make a major difference, and a few porcelain veneers can create a totally renewed smile.

Placing Porcelain Veneers The Traditional Treatment Timeline

Placing traditional dental veneers takes two visits roughly two weeks apart. For patients who want quicker results, we also offer minimal-prep veneers, which require less alteration to the natural tooth structure.

The traditional veneer timeline looks something like this:

Your veneers will be hand-crafted in a local lab by experienced technicians.

Assessing Candidacy

During your initial consultation at our office in Albuquerque, NM, Dr. Ollason will take digital x-rays and scans, examine your teeth, and discuss your goals. We will also go over the cost of treatment and alternatives.

Prepping the Tooth

If you decide to upgrade your smile with dental veneers, we will begin by prepping your tooth. When prepping the tooth for a porcelain veneer, Dr. Ollason will remove a fraction of a millimeter of enamel. This will allow the thin porcelain shell to lay flush alongside your other teeth without looking bulky.


We will then take digital impressions that will be used to create your custom veneers. In some cases, a lab technician will meet with you in our office to take pictures and perform custom shading. We can also provide a wax-up of your veneers to allow you to preview your potential results. At this time, we can make small changes to ensure that you are satisfied with the size, shape, and fit of your prosthetics.


Your veneers will be hand-crafted in a local lab by experienced technicians. Typically, fabrication takes about two to three weeks, during which you will be provided with temporary veneers. These protect prepped teeth and prevent excessive sensitivity.

Placing Final Veneers

When the final porcelain veneers are complete, you will return to our practice. We will check the porcelain shells for fit one last time before our dentist adheres them in place with a dental cement.

Making the Procedure Comfortable Improving the Veneer Experience

Dr. Ollason and the New Mexico Smile Center team go the extra mile to make the veneers process positive. Your comfort and wellness are important to us.

Sedation and Amenities

We want patients to be in a relaxed state when getting dental veneers or undergoing any form of dentistry. We offer nitrous oxide sedation to help keep you calm while in the chair, and we also provide headphones so you can enjoy music or your favorite podcast during visits.

Patient Education

Uncertainty is a major cause of anxiety, especially when undergoing dental work. To reduce stress and fear, we will answer all of your questions and address all of your concerns about dental veneers. Knowing what to expect will do wonders for your sense of calm.
