Kevin needed to improve her appearance. She felt it would help her not only personally but professionally. She began to seek ways to do that. She considered Lumineers, laser dentistry, porcelain crowns and other types of cosmetic dentistry.
She became intrigued when she came across the Face Lift Dentistry ® of Dr. Sam Muslin DDS, M.A.G.D, on the internet. She looked at the before and after pictures on his website. The dramatic photos suggested that his patients benefited greatly both cosmetically and in overall dental health from Dr. Muslin’s work.
After reading through the case studies about Dental Face Lifts, she decided to make an appointment.
The Shape of Her Face
Dr. Muslin focused the discussion on changing the shape of Kevin’s face. It became clear to Kevin that a dental procedure could change the shape of her face. Quite frankly, she was shocked and pleasantly surprised! Using state of the art equipment, Dr. Muslin simulated how her face would be lifted by simulating the bite lift on her teeth.
After seeing that, Kevin decided to go forward with the procedure.
Kevin’s Face Lift Dentistry ® Treatment
Every aspect of her treatment was customized from teeth angulation to the amount of bite opening to the jaw repositioning. The goal for Kevin was to totally restructure her bite and reposition her jaw. All of this and the other dental work would be completed without having to grind down her natural teeth. All of natural enamel would be preserved.
One plus was that Kevin had no existing dental work or crowns. She was happy that her natural teeth would be preserved in the process.
Kevin had been thinking about Lumineers as a treatment. However, Dr. Muslin did not create Lumineers for her teeth. She has her own ceramist. The ceramist developed the porcelain veneers and Dr. Muslin used her customized technique to bond the veneers. The results look natural and the material is very durable.
Dental Face Lift ® Results for Kevin
If you look at the before and after photos, you can see the results. Her face size increased over 6 mm. Her jaw had been aligned naturally forward and downward. Kevin’s wrinkles smoothed out. The teeth were used to support the facial soft tissue filling in the contours of her face nicely.
The treatment took four longer visits (and some short visits) over a period of six weeks. No stitches, surgery, pain medication, antibiotics or work down time was necessary.
Kevin was delighted with the results.
Dr. Sam Muslin has been practicing and perfecting Face Lift Dentistry® in the Los Angeles area since 1985.
