"Dr. Wall and His Staff Are Outstanding!"
Meet Our Dentist Dr. Byron W. Wall
After earning his Bachelor of Science degree from The University of Iowa in 1978, Dr. Wall continued on to attend dental school at the University of Iowa, achieving his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1982. After completing his general practice residency at Illinois Masonic Medical Center in 1983, he opened his private practice in Albuquerque, NM, in August of that year.
Dr. Wall continues his education every year at the Las Vegas Institute Continuum, where he stays up-to-date with the latest technology and innovative techniques in modern dentistry so he can help patients maintain a healthy mouth and a stunning smile. He is affiliated with a number of professional dental groups and associations including:
- Albuquerque District Dental Society
- New Mexico Dental Association
- University of New Mexico
Dental lasers can eliminate periodontal bacteria and excess gum tissue. Laser treatment minimizes bleeding and discomfort while promoting a faster recovery.
DIAGNOdentThe DIAGNOdent™ system uses laser fluorescence technology to safely diagnose dental cavities in their earliest stages.
3D Panoramic Digital X-Rays
Our dentist uses advanced digital imaging (such as digital x-rays, which produce incredibly detailed images) for precise dental diagnoses and treatment planning.
Our in-office CEREC® system can generate same-day crowns, inlays, and onlays using digital impressions of your teeth.

To ensure patients at our Albuquerque, NM, dentist office receive the finest dental care, each member of our team strives to stay informed about the latest and most effective dental treatments.

"Friendly and Courteous"
I’ve been going here for about 15 years. Prior to that I had a pretty traumatic experience. I recommend Dr. Wall and Cosmetic Dentistry of New Mexico to anyone that mentions dental work in my presence. At this place you’ll learn that going to the dentist doesn’t have to be such an anxiety producing event. Give them a try! The rest of the staff is awesome too!View On Google
I get the usual friendly and courteous service. I do not have to wait for anything which I appreciate.
Monica is very efficient and kind and does a thorough job of my cleaning. She manages to be friendly and also efficient which is very good for me.
Top marks for service and ambience.
Vicki Discusses Her Smile Makeover
Patients who have received a traditional crown know that the experience can be less than ideal. The process involves messy impressions, uncomfortable and ill-fitting temporary restorations, and can take weeks for a dental lab to complete. At our Albuquerque, NM, dentist office, patients can take advantage of the cutting-edge CEREC system, which allows Dr. Wall to fabricate restorations in a single visit. We are able to save our patients from having to make multiple trips to the dentist by creating and placing a durable crown in about an hour so that you can get on with your busy schedule.
Chipped, slightly crooked, or worn teeth not only compromise your appearance–they can also have an impact on the way you perceive yourself. Using advanced dental ceramics that mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel, Dr. Wall can color-match veneers to the shade of your surrounding teeth for a seamless look. With proper care, veneers can last 10 years or more. Our Albuquerque, NM, dentist can conceal imperfections with ultra-thin, custom-crafted porcelain veneers, giving you a brilliant smile you can be proud to share.
Stained teeth can leave patients embarrassed with their appearance. While there are countless over-the-counter products, they cannot match the dramatic and transformative results provided by professional teeth whitening treatments. In just one visit to our Albuquerque, NM, dentist office, we can transform the appearance of your teeth. We offer various options to suit your needs, including Zoom!® and Sinsational Smile, so you can achieve optimal effects. Regain your confidence and enjoy the benefits of brighter teeth thanks to our attentive care and professional teeth whitening treatment.
Patients who suffer from TMJ disorder live each day with teeth grinding, jaw pain, and bite misalignment. The symptoms of TMJ disorder include clicking when opening and closing your mouth, a locked jaw, and headaches. Left untreated, TMJ disorder can lead to worn teeth, an increased risk of tooth decay, and joint damage. Dr. Wall can relieve these persistent and often debilitating symptoms that make patients constantly tired, moody, and in pain with the help of neuromuscular dentistry at our Albuquerque, NM, dentistry practice.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept insurance?
We do accept most major dental insurance plans. Our friendly office staff will be happy to file all the necessary paperwork with your provider to ensure you can take full advantage of your benefits. It is important to keep in mind that unlike procedures like dentures, insurance companies do not cover purely cosmetic procedures such as veneers and teeth whitening. We can answer any questions you have about your insurance coverage during your next visit to our Albuquerque cosmetic dentistry office.
Do you offer dental implants?
Dr. Wall does not place dental implants, but that doesn't mean we can't help restore your smile with implant dentistry. If you are interested in finding out if you're a good candidate for this method of tooth replacement, Dr. Wall can coordinate treatment with a qualified oral surgeon in the Albuquerque area. This allows our patients who are interested in an implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture to receive the care they need and deserve.
How is cosmetic dentistry different from general dentistry?
General dentistry is focused on maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. Cosmetic dentistry enhances the appearance of your smile. At Cosmetic Dentistry of New Mexico, Dr. Wall and his team of highly trained dental professionals combine the principles of general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry to provide our patients with smiles that are as healthy as they are attractive.
How long do cosmetic treatments take?
Many purely cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening and dental bonding can be completed in a single office visit. Thanks to the many technologically advanced tools at our Albuquerque dentistry practice, we can perform cosmetic and restorative treatments such as crowns and onlays in a single appointment. Since veneers require preparatory care and custom fabrication at a dental lab before they can be placed, the total treatment time can range from two to three weeks.
