Monaco. That is where Lorraine lives. She wanted straight teeth and decided porcelain veneers might be a good option.
However, she did not want her teeth to be grinded down (That is called non-invasive cosmetic dentistry). First, she checked out Lumineers – a type of porcelain veneer that is bonded over natural teeth using a non-invasive procedure.
Lorraine and her friends were cautious. They had heard that any kind of veneers could look fake. Her friends, in fact, advised her not to consider getting the veneers. And Lorraine had concerns about the health of her teeth and the possibility of grinding being done on them.
Bulky Tipped Crooked Teeth
Lorraine had missing teeth, gaps in the teeth, teeth that she considered too bulky and tipped and crooked teeth. She desired straight teeth, with no grinding and no pain.
Lorraine did some investigative work and came upon the website of Dr. Sam Muslin, DDS, MAGD. One the features of Dr. Muslin’s practice that convinced her he was the dentist she needed were the before and after patient photos on his website. She thought the results looked great!
Many of Dr. Muslin’s patients who visit him for treatment come from long distances. So, he has gotten used to performing complex cosmetic dentistry in a short period of time. That is one of the reasons why he maintains an on-site ceramist to create the dental restorations.
Cosmetic Dental Treatment
After a thorough examination of Lorraine’s mouth, Dr. Muslin suggested that Lorraine get her gums healthy first and come back in about six weeks for the “instant braces” treatment. The custom-made porcelain veneers would provide her with straight, white natural looking teeth in four days (well within the 14 days Lorraine had allotted for the trip from Monaco).
When she got back to Dr. Muslin’s office in Santa Monica, CA, the doctor and his ceramist began working together to make the veneers. They used computer images to measure the precise dimensions of her new teeth.
For Lorraine, only two of her teeth needed to be minimally grinded down. No shots, anesthesia or dental injections were necessary during the procedure. The veneers were bonded to her existing teeth using a super-strong bonding agent.
Another Flawless Procedure!
Lorraine ended up with the natural, straight, non-fake appearing teeth she was looking for. After she flew back home, Lorraine wrote a letter to Dr. Muslin expressing her appreciation of his work.
