Tooth Shaving and Veneers can Destroy your Bite and Health

Cosmetic Dentistry Failures can be Avoided with No-Drilling VENLAY® Restorations

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.

Cosmetic Dentistry and Veneers Can Make the Bite Worse

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.

Failed Cosmetic Dentistry Replaced with VENLAY® Restorations

In the before photo, she has a mouth full of cosmetic dentistry, porcelain crowns, worn down teeth, TMJ pain, neck pain, Migraine headaches, and sleeping problems with a bad bite.

Aging Backward with Face Lift Dentistry®

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.

VENLAY® Bite Restoration Offers Much More Than a Cosmetic Dentistry Smile

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.

Longer Life Expectancy Demands Better Dental Health Care

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.

Faces Aging Too Quickly

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.

Looking Younger and Healthier with VENLAY® Restorations

The Cosmetic Benefits of VENLAY, Before and After Photo

Look at her neck in both photos and also look at her chin position in both pictures. You may need to take a close look to see the differences between what cosmetic dentistry does in the before picture and what the VENLAY® Bite Restoration did in the after picture. She is out of pain, sleeping better, and so far has not had a migraine headache.

Constant Pain from Cosmetic Dentistry

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.

The Cosmetic Dentistry Migraine Headaches

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 Make the Bite Worse

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.

VENLAY® Bite Restoration Advantages

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.

Bad Bite Restored

A wider smile and aesthetic enhancement - before and after VENLAY

In the before photo on the right, she hides her misery and she suffers everyday from a bad bite and cosmetic dentistry. She needed help with pain; sleeping and she wanted a wider smile that was better than cosmetic dentistry could deliver. The VENLAY® Bite Restoration.

Sleeping Problems Helped by Venlay® Bite Correction

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.
