It is easier than every before to get a wider smile and improve the bite at the same time. Cosmetic dentists will generally recommend porcelain veneers but veneers are very limited in how much they can widen a smile. The VENLAY® restoration can widen the smile much more than veneers and can correct the bite and improve the proportions of the entire face.
Many people live their lives with a bite that is unfavorable for their face and jaws and most of these patients are unaware that they suffer from this condition. As the years go by, tooth wear continues to worsen the bite, which eventually leads to bite collapse and facial shortening. Once this occurs, some people may develop “buck” teeth or teeth that are in front of the lower lip.
Nancy spent many years hiding her smile, but regained her confidence when she learned that her smile and entire face could be transformed in only two dental visits about 3 weeks apart. Within just a few weeks, Dr. Sam Muslin’s Face Lift Dentistry ® procedure provided her with the best bite for her individual characteristics and gave her stunning, life changing results.
30 Years Developing and Perfecting High Tech Dentistry
Each Face Lift Dentistry ® procedure is as unique as the patient; the treatment must be tailored to the individual so that the dentist may construct the best possible bite to enhance his or her health and appearance.
Reversing the Effects on Aging
This patient was unhappy with her bite and dental health and had the opportunity to enhance her professional career in the very near future. Previous dentists told her that she had to have jaw surgery. On her first visit she informed Dr. Muslin that she “needed a miracle.” Treatment was completed in just three weeks without jaw surgery. The patient’s expectations were exceeded and has given Dr. Muslin permission to show the photos of his work.
Bad Bites and Facial Collapse
When a patient has a bad bite, they tend to grind their teeth with greater force. The subsequent wear on the teeth results in bite and facial collapse. The teeth play a huge role in the shape and length of a patient’s face, so when the teeth get shorter, the face gets shorter too. A shortened face usually increases the appearance of facial wrinkles and makes the lips look thinner. Often times, the patient even looses clarity in speech. The tooth wear is gradual, so the patient usually has little knowledge of how much deterioration has occurred. Face Lift Dentistry® reverses years of wear, bite collapse and creates the ideal facial height that enhances each patient’s facial features. Within a few weeks, 10 to 20 years can be removed from a patient’s facial appearance for a younger look and a healthier bite. The entire face benefits from only working on a patient’s teeth.
Treatment for Bite Collapse
Gum disease, bad porcelain crowns, loose teeth, bad bites and facial collapse are improved in one well-organized treatment sequence. In one visit, all of the old crowns, cavities and gum infections are removed and temporary crowns, veneers and fillings are replaced. On the second visit, all of the new crowns, porcelain veneers and fillings are bonded to achieve a complete reversal of bite collapse and a permanent facial support and lengthening of the patient’s face. Treatment took about 3 weeks.
