Should a patient have porcelain veneers, or wear braces? Should his work be handled by a cosmetic dentist, or by an orthodontist? For this patient, the best treatment for the gaps between his teeth and for his crooked teeth was non-invasive, required no grinding high tech porcelain veneers.
Grinding down your healthy teeth for bite correction or for porcelain veneers is not necessary. Because patients are living so much longer, they must consider the consequences of cosmetic dentistry over the long term. Cosmetic dentists that grind down your teeth are really making recommendations that are bad for your health.
The advantage of veneers is that the treatment can be completed in just one to three weeks and the teeth will be permanently whiter with out any pain. This patient would also have a narrow smile if he had worn braces to close the gaps between his teeth, while veneers enabled the patient to keep a big, wide smile.
Dr. Sam Muslin Explains Why Veneers, Not Braces, are Often the Best Choice for his Patients
This is a young man with full lips and a wonderful facial structure. The smile and size of the teeth when he is not smiling must support his lips and face. The design of the veneers can provide wonderful facial support to prevent premature aging and support his lips.
This is why Dr. Sam Muslin was chosen as LA’s Best Cosmetic Dentist for 2015. This award covers all of Los Angeles County including Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Brentwood, Malibu, Santa Monica and Hollywood. One of the biggest reasons that his porcelain veneers look so natural, yet still have the Hollywood Smile, is because he understands all types of porcelain veneer material and chooses the best type of porcelain veneer for each patient.
There is not one type of veneer that works best for everyone because each patient has different requirements and the best cosmetic dentistry utilizes the best type of porcelain veneer for each patient. Dr. Muslin works on every patient’s porcelain personally. His work does not take extra time because, in the long run, so much time is saved with patients who are thrilled with their dental results.
The dentist explains the porcelain veneers placed on this patient to close the gaps and keep a wide smile in only two weeks. This patient traveled a long distance to be treated by this particular dentist.
Porcelain Veneers vs. Braces
This patient’s case was one of the instances where braces would squeeze his teeth closer together. This was not a good approach in this case because his large upper arch would become much too narrow if an orthodontist squeezed his teeth together with braces.
With over 20 years of experience with braces and over 30 years of bite reconstruction experience, this is one dentist who understands which treatment would be best for his patients. He will give his honest opinion so that his patients can make a choice for themselves. He likes to explain his services as the ultimate information source for complex adult dentistry.
