Motivated by a Career Opportunity
Some individuals need an outside force to nudge them into doing what they wanted to do all along. This was the case with Nancy. She had a promising career situation to pursue. Nancy knew that to go for this opportunity, she had to be at full capacity in every way.
That included how she looked. And at the time, Nancy fretted about her looks. Her face and teeth made her feel self conscious resulting in a lack of confidence.
Nancy had a bite issue for years. The bite was decidedly unfavorable for her jaw and face. Without being treated, the wear on her teeth caused the bite to deteriorate further giving her an overbite.
To correct the bite, the dentist she consulted with claimed Nancy would need jaw surgery. This sounded a bit extreme. In fact, it made her nervous.
Dr. Muslin’s Diagnosis
Dr. Sam Muslin, DDS, M.A.G.D., has been performing Face Lift Dentistry ® since 1985. His approach is completely non-invasive. He said Nancy didn’t need surgery to obtain the results she wanted. Nancy was very glad to hear that! She was even more pleased when Dr. Muslin suggested that her bite could be fixed and her smile improved in just two visits.
A Dental Face Lift ® is blending art, skill and technology to create a perfect bite alignment. That’s where the technique of the dentist comes in. Dr. Muslin realizes that the teeth act as a significant structure in supporting the face. So, what happens over time is that through natural wear and teeth grinding, the teeth shorten. What do you think that does to the face?
It causes the bite to collapse, the face to appear smaller and premature wrinkles to show. In addition, bite collapse can cause discomfort and even pain as the patient adjusts to the incorrectly positioned bite.
Dental Face Lift ®
In general, this procedure can take as little as two visits. On the first visit all of the old dental work is removed and replaced with temporary veneers, crowns and fillings.
The second visit results in bonding of all of the dental work. This reverses the bite collapse and naturally realigns the facial support. This results are simply stunning as can be seen in the before and after pictures of Nancy.
Her smile is dazzling. Her face appears more contoured causing a more relaxed, confident look. Perfect for those career possibilities!
