I have a little problem. I am using the abntex2 package in my document, and I am using bibtex to make the bibliography. When I use, for instance, \cite{reis}, that gives me the name of the author and the year his article was published. In this case, (REIS, 2013.) However, I need the page in which the citation was found to be between those parenthesis as well. Is there any way I could keep using the \cite{} command and have the page appear in the document as well?

    Do you mean \cite[p. 25--31]{reis}?

If you want to include the page numbers used for the cited document, then you add them as option to command \cite. Say pages 25 until 31:


With ~ you can force LaTeX not to do a line breaking between p. and 25.
