Beyond Veneers and Cosmetic Dentistry - No Drilling, No Surgery
The quality of life centers on how are we going to live and how healthy are we going to feel. Old worn down teeth contribute to physical stress and strain. Even if you are not aware of it, your body feels it. This man had taken the step to live the rest of his life to the fullest, from the best possible health perspective to the way he projects himself to others.
He could have said, “I’m old and don’t want to spend the money” but he realized that the quality of his life is significantly better with “optimization” dentistry.
Healthy teeth are preserved with a new high tech porcelain layer over the biting surfaces and out side surfaces to protect your remaining tooth structure. Your teeth will be less sensitive than ever before and have a new smooth surface with the color that you choose. It is all about gaining the greatest benefit without sacrificing your health.
Improving how you project yourself has a big impact on the quality of your life. Grandchildren have a tendency to shy away from things that are unappealing and we have had grand parents come in to our office to fix their teeth after their grand daughter asked why her teeth were too dark and crooked. We are living a lot longer than ever before and taking the time and money to invest in ourselves takes an effort that can increase the quality of our lives. Our grandchildren see the crooked yellow teeth and don’t really understand why. We have had grandparents come in the office a little humbled by a comment. The problem is when they avoid us and we don’t know why.
Most of us never looked in a mirror and watched ourselves talking. We may have smiled, combed our hair and washed our faces but what do our faces look like when we ourselves?
Too often patients only get partial treatment like a smile with porcelain veneers. The bite goes untreated and the patient continues their lives with a less than optimal jaw position for their faces and consequently are physically compromised without even knowing why.
When they are speaking only the lower teeth are visible. When they are sitting quietly we look like we are angry. This type of dental health care helps the patient look good all of the time. After treatment patients look younger when they are at rest because they have facial support. They now show upper teeth when they are speaking like that of a much younger person. VENLAY® restorations, have many advantages over porcelain veneers by helping patients look great all of the time in every position with overbite and under bite correction.
This patient had an overbite and now it is completely corrected. The key to the secret is determining where to position the lower jaw and then build the bite to support that position. Most dentists only increase the vertical dimension, which is only one dimension with a three-dimensional problem.
This patient needed the position of his jaw idealized and working only in one dimension doesn’t solve the problem. One of the problems is that older patients show only lower teeth when they are speaking. Younger patients show upper teeth. The goal of this treatment is to build a younger bite and a younger persons tooth display to help older patients look and feel younger all of the time, not just when they are smiling.
Dr. Muslin’s exclusive method allows him to quickly and easily determine the best three-dimensional position, test it before treatment starts to make sure he is correct and then build it quickly and accurately.
The most important element regarding the quality of his work is that he personally designs all of his patient’s teeth and he works on the porcelain personally to make sure the design he wants is the design he gets without wasting his patient’s valuable time. He spends extra time working on the results for the patient to decrease the chances of unacceptable results that was his patient’s time. He wants to get it right the first time.
Dr. Muslin’s work must be highly predictable in order to satisfy his international patients so they can receive his care and not have to make unnecessary trips back to the United States. He does everything possible to insure that his patient’s get his personal touch with his artistic skills built into their porcelain every time.
Dr. Muslin says, “Each person needs a little bit of what I call ‘biological variability’ so that everyone has their own unique smile, while preserving their natural facial features so the results look totally natural. Of course, his patients pick their own tooth color and choose a certain look for their teeth and he listens to them.
Dr. Muslin wishes to humbly thank this patient and all of the other patients that have given him written permission to show their faces for everyone to evaluate the quality of his work. He is trying to show the wide diverse types of problems that can be treated using his method.
If you are interested in receiving treatment that is fast and saves your own natural tooth structure along with getting a bite that reverses the effects of aging that is good for your health, give his office a call and speak with his treatment coordinators.
