Video Testimonial 5-Years After Overbite Correction

How long do VENLAY® Restorations last? This is a dramatic video of a patient explaining his results vs. expectations five years after treatment.

“Porcelain Veneers cannot correct overbites or jaw alignment, however, VENLAY® Restorations were invented for overbite, underbite and jaw alignment corrections.“

You cannot find Dr. Muslin’s non-invasive method anywhere other than at his office in Santa Monica, California.  This patient was happy and thankful to fly in from Arkansas because he believes, “if you want the best, you have to go to the best.” 

Why Does My Chin look so Small?

The reason that a chin appears small is that the bite forces the lower jaw back towards the ears.  The jaw position and the bite cause the chin to look smaller when it really is larger than it looks.   The main cause of why the chin looks so small are overbites and bad bites.  The best way to have a larger looking chin is to correct the bite with VENLAY® Bite Restorations.  But, first the jaw position needs to be located and JawTrac® can let the chin and lower jaw move to their natural position instead of the overbite position.

Misaligned Jaw Causes, Overbites and Weak-Looking Chins

Misaligned jaws due to overbites cause weak looking chins. When the patient has misaligned jaws, the chin is forced backwards and the lower jaw closes too far upwards.   The best treatment is the JawTrac® testing to align the lower and upper jaws which will improve the jaw position.  The best part of this treatment is that you can improve your facial profile, breathing ability, sleeping ability, chin size, and reduce the TMJ problems and get the best possible cosmetic dentistry with the Face Lift Dentistry® Method. 

How Can VENLAY® Bite Restoration Solve Deep Overbites?

The VENLAY® bite restoration solves overbite problems by three-dimensionally positioning the lower jaw into a more forward position which opens up the airway.  This method transforms your jaw position from a deep overbite position to a healthy bite position using VENLAY® Restorations.   If your natural teeth that are in an overbite position can make your chin look smaller, then by improving the shape of your existing teeth your jaw moves from a deep overbite position to a healthy bite position.  There are a host of health benefits as a bigger airway, sleeping better, less head and neck strain, less TMJ pain and fewer headaches.

Can Cosmetic Dentistry Correct Bites?

Cosmetic dentistry can improve your smile but it typically does not correct bites and it can and often does make your bite worse. Face Lift Dentistry® improves your entire face, facial profile and has health benefits that improve your life. One of the worst problems with cosmetic dentistry is that the dentist cuts down your healthy teeth.  We need to begin thinking long term because the consequence of cutting down healthy teeth unnecessarily has bad long-term effects.

Five Years After Treatment – “It’s Perfect!”

Crooked teeth, bad bite and misaligned jaw can affect a person’s self-confidence and today we have a solution that is much less painful and far less invasive than just surgery or cosmetic dentistry that cuts down your teeth.

Crooked Teeth, Overbite, And Small Chin

This patient received overbite, crooked teeth and misaligned jaw treatment that have permanently improved the rest of his life.  All of his problems were diagnosed and treated with one comprehensive treatment.  He received a non-invasive, non-surgical Bite correction and Jaw Realignment with VENLAY® Restorations and JawTrac®.  Now breathing better, sleeping deeper, clearly looking and feeling great, this patient says, “Dr. Muslin has transformed my life.” 

VENLAY® Bite Restoration After Porcelain Veneers

If you already have porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns or even a lot of fillings, you can still have the VENLAY® Bite Restoration treatment.  We usually replace all of your existing dentistry with all new matching and balanced porcelain restorations.  We do all of your teeth at the same time and we create new porcelain restorations that are designed to correct your bite, support your face and give you an unmatched Face Lift Dentistry® Smile.

This patient’s jaw is forced back towards his ears due to his teeth and bite forcing his jaw into this position. When he bites his teeth together, his bite forces his jaw back and makes his chin look too small and his face looks too short.

Can Cosmetic Dentistry Correct Misaligned Jaws?

This patient’s jaw is forced back towards his ears due to his teeth and bite forcing his jaw into this position. When he bites his teeth together, his bite forces his jaw back and makes his chin look too small and his face looks too short. 

When the overbite was corrected using JawTrac®, his jaw repositioned, his face now appears normal, his chin appears larger, and his airway and breathing ability improved significantly.

Cosmetic Dentistry is Patchwork Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry has limited goals, primarily centered on the smile.   Bite correction is far more complex and requires much greater expertise to deliver.  With Cosmetic Dentistry, bite correction is usually not even discussed.  The biggest negative about cosmetic dentists is that they usually drill down healthy teeth.  With our method a patient gets a Dental Facelift® using VENLAY® Bite Restoration with JawTrac® alignment and the Face Lift Dentistry® Method, without even getting a shot. 

Overbite Corrected using JawTrac® Alignment and VENLAY® Bite Restoration

This treatment uses JawTrac® to locate the right position for a misaligned jaw and VENLAY® Restorations can build the bite that holds the jaw position.

To treat his overbite with VENLAY® Restorations, JawTrac® repositioned his jaw. His face now appears proportional, his chin appears larger, and his airway and breathing ability improved significantly. The best part is that his healthy teeth were saved from the cosmetic dentist’s drill and he got his bite corrected, which he knew would not have happened, at his local cosmetic or neuromuscular dentist. He flew in from Arkansas and he says it was worth it.

Cosmetic Dentistry vs. VENLAY® Bite Restoration

Our patients keep telling us that their cosmetic dentist was very nice and said he or she said they were “very conservative” and they say, “I will not grind down very much tooth structure.”  Then they give you anesthetic and cut down your healthy teeth.  Many dentists claim a lot of things about how they will treat you or prep your teeth for treatment, saying they have a conservative approach– yet they will drill down your healthy teeth.  Once they numb you and start drilling, it’s game over, and before you know it, you are left with teeth cut down to little pegs.   

VENLAY® Restorations were invented and designed to be non-invasive, and require no surgery or surgical procedure whatsoever!  This means no shots, no surgery, no drilling down healthy teeth.  We see patients that are 70 years of age and have never had a filling.  They don’t even need any anesthetic.  We see younger teenage patients and patients in the 20’s and older that never had a filling and again, they don’t need a shot or any anesthetic because our method is nearly painless and much quicker than the other methods. 

Overbite Treatement: Before and After
Most patients don’t have a gum problem like this, but on his right side he needed gum treatment to balance the right and left side of his gum line. Dr. Muslin completes this treatment without stitches in about 30 minutes. The photo on the right was taken 5 years after the treatment was completed.

“Dentists looked at my teeth and recommend jaw surgery and braces, but Dr. Muslin looks at the entire structure of the face.” 

This is the key difference. A cosmetic dentist can improve the smile, but not the jawline, and not the facial profile and not the bite.  The VENLAY® Bite Correction is a much more complex method because in one treatment plan we can give an incredible smile, improve the entire shape of the face, improve the facial profile, relieve pain and stress yet give cosmetic dentistry beyond traditional cosmetic dentistry.

How Much is VENLAY® Overbite Correction?

Most patients don’t realize how much more one patient would have to pay then another patient because of the condition of the teeth.  We don’t want to quote a lower number, and then you come in needing all kinds of treatment.  We don’t want to quote a higher number and turn off patients that would spend less. 

What is the Average Cost?  Please remember, this is not cosmetic dentistry and 8 porcelain veneers that leave you with the same face, same bite, and same profile.  This is a treatment that does far more than normal cosmetic dentistry is designed to do.  Our treatment is health care that addresses how long we are going to live by saving our healthy teeth from the dental drill, our jaws from being surgically altered, years and years of braces or clear retainers and all of the time lost with those treatments.

Please refer to What Is the Cost of Face Lift Dentistry® on our FAQ page for cost estimates.

How Long Does This Treatment Take?

Our method usually requires a consultation that helps you learn a lot about yourself and how your treatment can proceed.  This takes about 10 to 20 minutes.  If the patient moves forward for JawTrac® testing and records, we need 3 hours and you will get a written estimate.  Then it is up to you to move forward and this takes two 5 day visits separated by three weeks for Dr. Muslin to custom design your VENLAY® Restorations, bond them and tune them to your normal functions. 

Calling our office and explaining your dental needs can help us give you some idea of cost. Just about everyone is a candidate for this method so booking a consultation with Dr. Muslin and his treatment staff is the best way to receive your treatment and cost options.   We really need to see you in person for you to see your new face during the very first visit.
