Do you want a beautiful smile? If so, porcelain veneers by an expert cosmetic dentist like Dr. Arthur Chal can give you the smile of your dreams. But it is important to realize that creating beauty is more than putting technical training into action. It is rooted in the ability to listen.
Dr. Arthur Chal does beautiful porcelain veneers. This is mainly attributed to his inherent ability to interpret your individualized desires and translate them into a stunning new smile. He was the first dentist in the Phoenix area to be accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentist and he is also a past president of that academy, with numerous achievements and awards.
They’re made out of thin wafers of porcelain, often only two-one-hundredths of an inch thick. They can change the color and shape of your teeth. In the hands of an artist like Dr. Chal, they will not only be gorgeous, but will be healthy for your teeth and long-lasting.
Don’t ask just any dentist to do work like this. Doing stunning Phoenix porcelain veneers requires extensive training in the color properties of teeth and porcelain, bonding technology, and principles of facial beauty.
To do a porcelain veneer, Dr. Chal will usually shave a tiny amount from the front of your tooth, as is indicated in the diagram at the right. Currently, there is a lot of talk about DaVinci Veneers and other brands of porcelain veneers. Dr. Chal can help you know if any of these are right for you.
Most cases, however, in order to give you a superior result that will the the most beautiful and the most healthy for you over the long run, will require a small amount of shaving of the tooth. People worry that this may not be healthy for the teeth. Ironically, if there is no shaving of the tooth, it creates more of a health problem than if there is. Without reducing the tooth a small amount, that means that the veneer will have to be bonded on top of the tooth, and there will be a small ridge where it meets the tooth. This ridge or bump will tend to attract stain and plaque, and can not only cause the result to look unattractive after a period of time, but can also promote decay in that spot, or gum disease.
When combined with a “gum lift” procedure, this is an excellent way to improve the appearance of a gummy smile.
