Fixing a Severe Overbite
As we grow up, we have no control over how our bite will end up forming. In Diana’s case, the bite turned out to be what is called buck teeth. Some of the problems with that, if left untreated, include:
- Spaces begin to form between the teeth
- The spaces can alter the way you speak
- The teeth can look unattractive
- The appearance of the upper lip changes because the teeth push the lip upward
In addition to buck teeth, Diana had an infection in two of her teeth. It caused her teeth to move and also resulted in bone loss.
The Diagnosis and Face Lift Dentistry Treatment
Diana went to Dr. Sam Muslin. Dr. Muslin, DDS, MAGD, is a prominent cosmetic dentist practicing in Santa Monica, CA. After a thorough examination, he decided to remove her two infected teeth. This would allow the bones to shrink back so her lip could move to its natural position.
After that, the doctor did a bone graft and removed the infection. Right there, her health dramatically improved. He also provided Diana with temporary teeth. So, that in one visit, she left Dr. Muslin’s office with straight teeth (temporary as they might be) without gaps between them.
In the two months it took Diana to heal from the first visit, Dr. Muslin, created the permanent porcelain bridge. When it was time to apply it he precisely set it into the sockets.
Results after a Dental Face Lift
The results, as you can see by the photos, were quite transforming. Diana’s lips were positioned more naturally. Her speech regained its clarity. She looked much better. The entire process left her looking natural. The work Dr. Muslin did was virtually undetectable.
Diana was so please she said:
“I really appreciate the quality and am glad that there is someone that could provide this level of care so fast and pain free.”
