Facelift Dentistry® is a mouth and bite reconstruction that corrects problems or imperfections caused by the wrong jaw and bite position. By using no-prep VENLAY® Restorations, patients can have true bite correction without the need to drill down healthy teeth and with minimum discomfort. When weighing up the cost of Facelift Dentistry® you should also consider what it will cost you by not having a healthy bite and jaw position.
The traditional method for a full mouth reconstruction requires drilling down all of your healthy teeth, which is risky, painful, and may require root canals, which may cause severe pain and sensitivity to temperature and biting pressure.

Facelift Dentistry® is an advanced form of dental treatment that delivers results beyond porcelain veneers and cosmetic dentistry. Treatment cost depends on the desired outcome. See examples of actual cost.
The goal of Cosmetic Dentistry is to create a positive change to your smile and your teeth. This generally translates to Teeth Whitening and Porcelain Veneers. The goal of Face Lift Dentistry is to correct your bite and ensure that your jaw is in its most comfortable position in addition to a beautiful smile, the optimum dental health, as well as a better jawline.
Veneers do not correct bites. Typically only a few teeth need to be treated with veneers, so the cost of Cosmetic Dentistry is vastly less than the cost of Facelift Dentistry®, as it should be.
The Face Lift Dentistry® bite correction method treats all of the patient’s teeth and has benefits that go far beyond porcelain veneers and cosmetic dentistry to address problems such as jaw alignment, TMJ issues, profile correction, underbite correction, overbite correction, facial aging, small chins, large chins, breathing and chewing problems, sleep apnea, etc. Best of all, treatments with the Facelift Dentistry® method are predictable with little risk, requires no surgery, no braces or expanders, no drilling down of healthy tooth enamel, is almost pain-free, and can be completed in as little as one month without any downtime.
Evaluating cost is about a person’s perspective and knowledge of what is asked for and what is delivered. With Cosmetic Dentistry the patient is asking only for a better smile. With Face Lift Dentistry®, the patient is asking for 28 independently sculptured porcelain VENLAY® Restorations that works harmoniously with the TMJ for every minute of every day, seven days per week. They want to have the best shape to their faces, a better jawline, chew efficiently, speak clearly, sleep well and also have an incredible smile with facial support and a whole new sense of self-confidence.
Candidates want a transformation that is predictable, done quickly, saves their healthy teeth, is non-invasive, optimizes the jaw position and facial profile and delivers cosmetic perfection to each patient’s standards. Patients have said: “the results are priceless” and “I’ll do this again in a heartbeat.”
