Anti-Aging Face Lift Dentistry ® with Venlay ® Non-Invasive Bite Correction
You will never look your best, feel your best or achieve maximum health unless your jaw position and bite are idealized.
- Dr. Sam Muslin
- 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.
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 they are supported by the teeth. 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 jawline is stronger or in better proportion to the rest of your face so that your look is improved from every angle. This anti-aging Face Lift Dentistry ® is available from Santa Monica cosmetic dentist, Sam Muslin DDS.
Natural Facial Optimization
The aging face can appear naturally years younger by optimizing the teeth and coordinating the bite with the anti-aging dental treatments. Patients who look older than their actual age or even 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.
The teeth are idealized in every dimension to improve speech and TMJ comfort as well. It enhances the patient's self-confidence, appearance and persona every single day for the rest of their lives. Dr. Muslin focuses on maximizing the health and appearance of his patients many of which will achieve their results without having to grind down their natural teeth.
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. Dr. Sam Muslin believes that, "You will never achieve your maximum health potential."
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 minimizes wrinkles and sagging skin below the jawline or chin, and creates fuller lips simply by returning aging teeth to their more ideal height and bite position.
Aging and tooth wear are normal processes that can leave your face rounder and fuller 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 injections like Botox or Restylane. The results are long term and they can take 15 years of aging off of your face.
Underbite 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 latest technology called a Venlay ® none of the healthy teeth need to be ground down. The treatment is remarkably quick and painless because your natural teeth stay intact. Old fillings, old dental crowns and old porcelain veneers are replaced with new biologically compatible high tech porcelain Venlays ® in just one or two weeks. These patients can now experience a life, full of possibilities because their bite is healthy and it was built to compliment 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 Venlays ®.
An Underbite generally involves a difference in jaw size. In this case, the patient has an oversized lower jaw and an undersized upper jaw. He was told by approximately 4 dentists or TMJ experts that the only solution was a very invasive surgery that would cut down the size of his lower jaw and also try to split the upper jaw to make it wider. He was very unhappy with this option, until he found Dr Sam Muslin, a cosmetic dentist in Santa Monica, CA, who had a non-surgical underbite correction procedure.
Overbite Correction and the Shape of Our Faces
Teeth play a huge role in the support of the our 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.
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, mouth reconstruction combined with cosmetic treatment and TMJ or jaw joint alignment, such as the Face Lift Dentistry ® treatment, can transform the entire face so that you look great when you are smiling but also when you are not.
Since conventional cosmetic treatments focuses 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.
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.
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 compliment 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.
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?
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. Then specialized and customized non invasive Venlays ® and only when necessary porcelain crowns 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.
