One of the biggest failures of cosmetic dentistry is that the dentist cuts or shaves down your healthy teeth with a dental drill for cosmetic purposes. This is entirely unnecessary with VENLAY® Restorations. You need to know that these restorations offer far more than the smile you will get from a cosmetic dentist and porcelain veneers.
When the cosmetic dentist drills down your healthy teeth, they become weaker and more vulnerable to decay, can make your bite worse, and the teeth can become very sensitive to temperature. Patients have had tooth sensitivity that lasted for years after getting their healthy teeth cut down for porcelain veneers. Some of those teeth even needed root canals, and some had to be extracted requiring dental implants. We need to think about how much longer we are living and get a type of dentistry that helps our teeth last our lifetime rather than drill them down to little pegs just for a cosmetic dentistry smile.
We keep seeing patients that have bite problems after getting cosmetic dentistry and porcelain veneers because the smile dentist made the bite worse. The cosmetic dentist recommended lengthening the teeth with veneers only to end up making the overbite deeper. The problem is that it is much easier to be a cosmetic dentist than a Face Lift Dentist. The Face Lift Dentistry® Method requires much more training, skills, and technology combined with many years of experience. We are saying that because we are living so much longer, porcelain veneers can be a huge mistake in the long term.
This treatment is healthcare at it’s finest. Patients can get relief from the physical imbalance between the bite, teeth and the jaw joints (TMJ). They are literally aging backward when their jaw position, TMJ and bite are synchronized with the Face Lift Dentistry® Method.
We need to take notice that we are living longer than any previous generation in the world. In the last forty years, we are living longer than ever, and we need to think about what happens to our faces and our bites. Our faces begin to collapse into shorter faces because our teeth are wearing down, making our faces age too quickly Cosmetic smile dentistry does nothing to address this issue most of the time.
We keep seeing patients that were treated by a “biological dentist” or a “neuromuscular dentist” or a cosmetic dentist that have bad bites, TMJ pain, aging faces, misaligned jaws, headaches, worn down teeth and instead of getting dental health care, they got cosmetic dentistry and porcelain veneers instead. It is time to take on the challenge of aging faces, ideal jaw positions, facial profiles, the airway and breathing better, sleeping better, the “crowded tongue syndrome,” misaligned jaws, premature aging faces, and TMJ pain.
VENLAY® Bite Restoration was designed to go past porcelain veneers and the cosmetic dentistry smile and move forward into dental health care that addresses our longer life expectancy. This method treats all aspects of dental health care and combines it with the ultimate level of cosmetic dentistry with a revolutionary non-invasive Face Lift Dentistry® method. Dentistry needs to recognize the damage that is being done to the health of the patient for aesthetic purposes instead of addressing bad bites, faces aging too quickly, TMJ pain, and head and neck stress and tension.
She has had porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers on almost every tooth, and she is left with migraine headaches, severe neck pain, sleeping difficulties, and breathing problems. Was it worth it? To live your life to it’s fullest, the jaws need to be aligned and the bite needs to be coordinated with the TMJ. Cosmetic dentistry simply is another form of patchwork dentistry that harms the patient’s health and teeth.
Migraine headaches can be caused by more than one thing, but most often; patients can get significant relief by correcting the bite. Lengthening the teeth with porcelain veneers causes “the cosmetic dentistry migraine headaches” because they increase the overbite and push the jaw back. The VENLAY® Bite Correction method corrects the bite and develops the shape of your face and profile and can reverse the effects of aging.
Porcelain veneers can be very damaging to the patient’s long-term health because healthy teeth are drilled down to stubs. The biggest problem with cosmetic dentistry and porcelain veneers is that they can make the bite worse because they focus on your smile and not your health.
She will explain that she is having health problems that are painful and is left with the cosmetic dentistry rollercoaster bite.
Cosmetic dentistry is really just smile dentistry when the patient needs much more than just a smile. The focus of VENLAY® Bite Restoration is on the physical function of the bite and TMJ and the coordination of all of the anatomical structures. This is not just about your smile; it is about your entire being. The shape of your face, your facial profile, pain relief, no drugs, no surgery, sleeping better, stress and tension relief, reverse the effects of aging and it is done without drilling away healthy teeth. This is health care with an incredible smile and a well-proportioned shape to the patient’s faces.
This patient is now able to sleep more soundly and longer because replacing all of the cosmetic dentistry with a new bite and new jaw position improves her health, relieved the stress and tension from the smile-type of cosmetic dentistry. We think it is time for dentistry to concentrate on the health of the patient instead of a patchwork smile.
"When I first came here my face was collapsed. I work for a chain of 7 dental offices and not one of the dentists could help me. I'm very happy that I came here. I couldn't be more happy."
Patient from Texas
"For the first time in years I do not have headaches or TMJ pain. I feel younger and happier and get a great response with my smile wherever I go."
Patient from Idaho
"I did not like my smile. Veneers could not do this as my jaw needed to change, not just my teeth. My niece is a patient of Dr. Muslin and the work she had done just blew me away. Face Lift Dentistry® gave me exactly what I need."
