  • Why do some people who are chronologically the same age look
    younger than others?
  • What causes TMJ problems, facial tension, headaches and neck pain?
  • Why do you snore?
  • Why are your porcelain veneers not helping you look younger?
  • Why are your lips getting thinner and squished?
  • Why does your face seem to be getting rounder or sunken in?

The answers to all of these questions can be found with one of the most innovative anti-aging dentistry health care treatments available called Face Lift Dentistry ®. The treatment is quick and easy and it does not require surgery, fillers or grinding down any of your healthy teeth! The Face Lift Dentistry ® treatment idealizes your bite and jaw position for unprecedented cosmetic and health benefits that reverse years of unnecessary aging.

No other treatment is available today that can permanently support your face, help you look years younger, improve your health and your smile.

- Dr. Sam Muslin

The treatment idealizes every facial characteristic to naturally improve your smile, profile, facial shape, jawline, and overall health. Thin lips can appear fuller without artificial fillers and implants because the teeth support the lips. Any receding gums are reversed with a gum loss treatment that is done without any gum grafting or stitches for easier healing and more natural results. The face is permanently lengthened to smooth out wrinkles and minimize fine lines.  The teeth and bite position begin to support the cheeks for a younger and healthier appearance. The jaw is in better position to balance the rest of your face so that your look is improved from every angle. This is the ultimate level of anti-aging Face Lift Dentistry ® and is available from Santa Monica cosmetic dentist, Sam Muslin DDS.

“I Cannot See My Upper Teeth Anymore”


Face Lift Dentistry - Restoring the aging face
Most senior patients have worn down their teeth and no longer show upper teeth. He went to a cosmetic dentist and had his upper teeth crowned but it did not work. In order to get the best smile and facial proportions, the bite needed to be corrected with Face Lift Dentistry®.

The aging face can appear naturally years younger by optimizing the teeth and coordinating the bite with the anti-aging Face Lift Dentistry ®. Patients who look older than their actual age appear angry because of short and worn down teeth can reverse these signs of aging caused by a bad bite. Other patients suffer with a lower jaw that appears forced back and too small because of a deep over-bite. The non-surgical Dental Face  ® offers an effective bite correction solution.

Beyond Cosmetic Anti-Aging Dentistry

There is no reason to have a superficial cosmetic result that only treats your smile. The shape of your face determines if you will suffer from premature aging. Your jaw position will determine if you will suffer from TMJ problems. The bite will determine if you will have trouble sleeping. In order to look younger, you must actually feel younger by improving your health. This treatment actually improves the health of your entire body by improving the clarity of your speech, reducing the number of times you wake up at night, improving your chewing efficiency, permanently supporting your face, reducing head and neck tension and optimizing the position of your jaw for the ultimate in total health.

Anti-Aging Benefits to Overbite Correction

Anti-Aging Dentistry - Before and After
She could have gone to the typical cosmetic dentist and gotten porcelain veneers but the shape of her face would look exactly the same. Her smile would improve but the key to looking younger is with bite correction and the Face Lift Dentistry® method.

Natural aging and tooth wear can lead to a shortened face, resulting in wrinkles and thin compressed lips that can make you look older than you are. The non-Surgical Dental Facelift ® is a non invasive dental treatment that can minimize wrinkles and sagging skin below the jawline or chin, and creates fuller lips simply by correcting the aging bite and allow the jaw to move to a more comfortable position.

Aging and tooth wear are normal processes that can leave your face rounder and older than it was in the past. Basically, as teeth wear and shorten, the distance between the tip of your nose and the bottom of your chin gets smaller.  This type of tooth wear and grinding throughout the first forty or fifty years of life can leave you looking older than you should with premature wrinkles.

Dr. Muslin's non-surgical Dental Face Lift ® reverses these effects, restoring a more youthful appearance without the need for painful cosmetic surgery or short-term cosmetic camouflage like Botox or Restylane. The results are long term and they can take 15 years of aging off of your face.

Short Round Faces and Small Looking Chins

This patient had a deep overbite, short yellow teeth that made him look older than he should. Porcelain veneers can’t achieve what was accomplished with Face Lift Dentistry®. The shape of his face improved and his chin looks more masculine.

Under Bite Correction Without Surgery

The new age of non-invasive and nonsurgical under bite correction dentistry can transform the lives of patients with surprising speed. This type of dentistry has been successful with patients from 19 to 93 years of age.

Using the only, non-surgical, bite correction restoration, called VENLAY®, none of the healthy teeth need to be ground down. The treatment is remarkably quick and painless because your natural teeth stay intact. VENLAY® bite correction can be completed in just a week or two.

These patients can now experience a life, full of possibilities because their bite is healthy and it was built to complement their faces. Unfortunately your overbite, under bite and bad bite cannot be corrected using just porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are nothing more than a cosmetic camouflage for your bite problem because they do not fix the actual health issues that are present.

The way to painlessly and comfortably reverse your bite problems so that you can look and feel your best is by choosing bite correction with Dr. Sam Muslin’s exclusive VENLAY® for non-surgical treatment using the Face Lift Dentistry® method.

Under Bite Correction without Surgery in 2 Weeks

Facelift Dentistry - Before and After
This patient had a significant improvement in her facial profile because Face Lift Dentistry ® treatment has the ability to quickly and painlessly allow the lower jaw to be more ideally positioned. She also has a wider smile, using the VENLAY® because you cannot get this type of result with porcelain veneers. Dr. Sam Muslin sincerely thanks her for allowing him to share the results of his work.

An under bite generally involves a difference in jaw size. In this case, the patient has an oversized lower jaw and an undersized upper jaw. Approximately 4 dentists or TMJ experts told her that the only solution was a very invasive surgery that would cut down the size of her lower jaw and also try to split the upper jaw to make it wider. She was very unhappy with this option, until she found Dr. Sam Muslin, a cosmetic dentist in Santa Monica, CA, who had a non-surgical under bite correction procedure.

No-Surgery Solution to Correct an Under Bite

Non-surgical underbite correction can deliver outstanding results as can be seen in this before after picture.

I was told that jaw surgery and years of braces was my only choice. Fortunately, I kept searching the Internet for several years, until i found this one dentist with an incredible underbite correction solution

Overbite Correction and the Shape of Our Faces

Teeth play a huge role in the support of the face. The shape of our faces and our bites were formed as we develop between ages 6 to 13. During that time we were growing and after that time we continued to grow. Our bites were formed randomly and without any precision. The shape of our faces is directly related to the type of bite that, by chance, we grew into.

No-Grinding Porcelain Veneers

This young man flew in from another country to be treated by Dr. Sam Muslin. His teeth were saved, no grinding, no shots and no pain to get his non-invasive porcelain veneers.

Deep Overbite Correction

Some of us have an overbite that contributes to a short lower face, while others have a short lower face attributed to years of grinding and the natural wear. The problem in both scenarios is that the tooth enamel and height is not sufficiently supporting our bites and our faces.  The Dental Face Lift ® restores the height of the teeth to rebuild the bite, resulting in better chewing ability, increased facial height, and a more youthful face.

The goal is to treat the entire face, the balance and function of the bite, and the overall health of the body.   By maximizing the potential of the patient's teeth to support the face, lips and cheeks a more refreshed and youthful appearance is restored.

Cosmetic Dentistry vs. The Dental Facelift ®


Cosmetic dental treatments, such as porcelain veneers or laminates, can make us look better when we smile but they generally do not address health concerns nor the shape of our faces. Yet, traditional mouth reconstruction or bite reconstruction methods generally do not improve the shape of the patient’s face. But when a full mouth reconstruction is combined with cosmetic treatment, TMJ or jaw joint alignment treatment , and Face Lift Dentistry  ® ,the results, can transform the entire face so that you look great when you are smiling but also when you are not.

Since conventional cosmetic treatments focus mainly on enhancing the appearance of a person's smile the results are not realized unless you are smiling.  In general, people smile only about two percent of the time, while the other 98% is spent speaking or at rest.  The Dental Facelift ® delivers results for your face and profile all of the time because the anti-aging benefits such as wrinkle reduction, fuller lips, a younger facial shape, and a more balanced profile are obvious whether you are smiling or not.

Treating Short Teeth from Clenching and Grinding

Facelift Dentistry - Before and After
His teeth were short and so was his face. With the VENLAY® method his teeth got a new high tech layer of porcelain built right over the top. He now has a new bite, a better-proportioned face, stronger jawline and a more masculine appearance.

Better Profile – Improving Weak Chins or Protruding Lower Jaws

Dr. Muslin's system of assessing and treating facial cosmetic issues goes far beyond "Just the Smile". The dental facelift treatment actually lifts and permanently lengthens the entire face while improving the profile and jawline. Cosmetic dentistry alone cannot offer this result.

Jaw Alignment Without Surgery

Some patients suffer from a weak chin while others feel that they have a protruding lower jaw.  The dental facelift treatment can improve the proportions of your entire face and profile without surgery. 

Jaw Alignment: The patient on the left needed her weak chin and jawline moved forward and strengthened.  The patient on the right needed her chin and jawline moved back to improve her facial profile!

The most important aspect is the geometrical, functional and three-dimensional analysis that Dr. Muslin develops for each patient.  A live motion camera system allows patients to observe themselves on an in-office television monitor from all angles including profile. This is one of many technological tools that Dr. Muslin utilizes to communicate with his patients.  We find that most patients are not aware of how they look while they are speaking, or which teeth even showing.  

The Best Cosmetic Dentist and More


The treatment requires highly specialized equipment, many years of experience and the ability to think "outside the box" which cannot be taught in dental school.  In order to achieve the very best results for the patient the dentist must have the vision of an artist along with the technical capacity to move accurately and quickly.

Each person presents a different set of health and aesthetic problems and every patient wants a unique look. With over 28 years of experience in Santa Monica Dr. Muslin offers his patients the latest technology and superior artistic skills for results that are natural looking and as functionally comfortable as possible.

Correcting a Narrow Smile and Warn Down Teeth

Ultra-thin Porcelain Veneers
Her teeth were short from years of wear and when the teeth wear down, the face gets shorter. As the face gets shorter the patient looks older and it can start when you are in the mid thirties. Early treatment improves your health and prevents premature aging. She now has a wide smile with a youthful appearance that resonates with her personality.

A Totally Custom Look For You

You will notice that every single one of Dr. Muslin’s patients looks different.  Each patient has a unique color, shape, and style to their smile and this is all by design.   Each of Dr. Muslin’s patients is a major participant in the aesthetic decisions that are made so that results are what the patient wants.

When you look through Dr. Muslin’s patients on this site you may think that one patient chose a color that is too white for your taste.  You may also prefer the shapes and style of one patients’ look over another and this is a good thing.  All of Dr. Muslin’s patients get their own unique look based upon their individual taste.  This level of customization is what you can count on to make sure that you can achieve the look you desire.

Sure we will offer you guidance and advice as to which color and shape would complement your facial features the best but ultimately the decision is all yours.  Some patients want a totally natural and subtle look while others are trying to achieve a brighter smile with more impact.  Take a look at the two patients below that clearly have different aesthetic goals.

Tetracycline Stain and an Overbite Correction

Non-Surgical Deep Overbite Correction - Before and After
This patient had a deep overbite, short yellow teeth that made him look older than he should. Porcelain veneers can’t achieve what was accomplished with Face Lift Dentistry ®. The shape of his face improved and his chin looks more masculine.
Correcting a Slanted Smile - Before and After
Both of these patients achieved the look that they desired!  He chose a very natural color and anatomically based shapes while she chose a more youthful and vibrant color in more idealized shapes.  Coming to Dr. Muslin gives you the opportunity to make these kinds of decisions for yourself.

How Is Non-Surgical Face Lift Dentistry ® Actually Done?


Mouth Reconstruction
Her bite was not balanced to her face so she only shows lower teeth when she talks and when she smiles.  Her face was also aging prematurely because her bite was not in harmony with her face.  With a healthy bite, she looks younger and she feels younger.

All of the old fillings, crowns and decay are removed and the teeth are cleaned. Any gum recessions or areas of gum loss are treated and reversed so that your oral health is optimized. With the specialized and customized non invasive VENLAY® for bite correction, the teeth and jaw are artistically crafted to function as an organized system.  This system is three dimensionally designed by Dr. Muslin to support your soft tissue, enhance your profile and optimize your facial shape.  Once the porcelain is bonded into place the results are evident and long term.

With biologically compatible dental materials and all infection removed, the health of the patient is improved. The porcelain can add color and luster to your teeth while still looking completely natural. Some porcelain technologies are better adapted to certain dental situations. The dentist has to understand the advantages and disadvantages of all of the porcelain systems available today in order to give the patient the best possible technology and durability.
