Teeth Ground Down to Stubs
You go to your cosmetic dentist in or near Beverly Hills and decide on getting a better smile. This dentist has been your dentist for several years and he or she finally talked you into porcelain veneers. The dentist said that he or she will need to grind down your teeth “just a little”. The very nice cosmetic dentist numbs your mouth and without understanding what is about to happen you then get your teeth ground down to small stubs.
Porcelain Veneers and Temperature Sensitivity
You wore the temporary veneers but you were immediately in pain after the anesthetic wore off. The teeth were beyond sensitive and you could not eat. If you drank anything cold the pain shot up your face. You took pain medication for three weeks while the veneers were being made and this threw off your digestion, sleep and family relationships to say the least. Then after three weeks of sensitivity and pain your cosmetic dentist bonds your porcelain veneers. You were miserable wearing the temporary veneers as your teeth ached and were very sensitive. You now have your new smile with porcelain veneers bonded to your teeth and you are still miserable. Your teeth are so sensitive you can’t eat. You have headaches, jaw pain and tooth pain. What happened?
Root Canals Needed After Porcelain Veneers
Your teeth are now so sensitive that you can’t drink anything cold. When you breathe you feel it. Ice cream is out of the question. Soft drinks send you through the roof. You are in pain all of the time and now taking the drugs that your “top quality” cosmetic dentist prescribed to you. This is not a discount dentist as you paid nearly $2,500 per tooth to be in this kind of pain. You got 8 veneers on your upper teeth and 8 veneers on your lower teeth. You cannot chew because something happened to your bite and you can’t understand it because a big name cosmetic dentist did this to you. You are mad. You aren’t sleeping well. You are taking prescription drugs for pain and your husband is furious because you keep talking about your pain everyday, which is now his pain and it has continued for the last several months. The husband is now also very upset. Your dentist refers you to an endodontist for root canals for some of the teeth.
TMJ Problems After Dental Veneers
Your whole life has changed and you have been miserable. So, your very expensive cosmetic dentist, is sending you to a root canal specialist to help stop the pain. He has been grinding on your new veneers to correct the bite to try to relieve you pain. You may ask, why did he mess up my bite? Your dentist is adjusting your bite with every visit and nothing is working . Finally, your dentist sends you to a TMJ dentist and you have had enough.
Correcting Bad Veneers by LA’s Best Dentist
You find a new dentist on the Internet in Santa Monica. Sam Muslin DDS, voted LA’s Best Dentist 2014. He sees you and in one visit you get some relief and on the second visit you get total relief. The pain is gone. The sensitivity is gone. You can chew again and sleep again. How could one dentist make such a difference? How could one dentist solve the problem in just two visits when your top cosmetic dentist could not solve the problems with nearly six months of visits?
The answer could be that the Santa Monica Dentist is a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry and the top cosmetic dentist is not. The Master dentist has extensive education and experience which makes a big difference in avoiding and solving cosmetic dentistry disasters. Also, the new dentist has been practicing for over 35 years and as he put it, “has seen it all”. He knew exactly what to do and solved the problem very quickly.
The Santa Monica dentist has a totally unique approach by NOT grinding down your healthy teeth. His version of cosmetic dentistry and anti-aging dentistry will save all of the healthy tooth structure and his porcelain veneers actually add a new layer to your teeth that makes them even less sensitive than they were before he started. Porcelain veneers that look natural and reduce the tooth sensitivity and none of the healthy tooth structure is ground down while at the same time, he is correcting the overbite and improving the shape of the patient’s face.
No Grinding VENLAY® Restorations
His approach (in his office) is to go beyond cosmetic dentistry and anti-aging dentistry with his non-invasive bite correction is to improve the health of the patient and the cosmetics at the same time. He does not sacrifice one to accomplish the other. The most important part of his no prep care is that you will not get porcelain veneers because you cannot make a significant overbite correction with porcelain veneers. Instead you will get his no grinding VENLAY® restorations that correct the bite and have cosmetic and functional potential far beyond anything that can be done with porcelain veneers. He can improve your chin position, smooth out wrinkles, help the neckline and improve your health at the same time. The negative part is that this treatment is expansive.
Don’t Compromise Your Health For Cosmetic Dentistry!
Technology has advanced in the area of bite correction so watch out for the cosmetic dentists that will “slaughter” your healthy tooth structure to give you Anti-Aging Dentistry or cosmetic dentistry. What is so anti-aging about having your healthy teeth ground down to stumps? Why sacrifice your health for cosmetics when you can improve your health with better cosmetic benefits.
The “new age of dentistry” is here and if you get it done right the first time you will not have the health of your teeth compromised, you won’t have to take narcotic pain medications, you won’t drive your husband, spouse, kids or significant other crazy, by being miserable for many months.
Dr. Sam Muslin says:
“Get it done right the first time by correcting your bite, improving the shape of your entire face with age reversing dentistry by saving all of your healthy tooth structure.”
