The shapes of our faces are not idealized because most of us do not have the best bite position and jaw position for our facial structure. We could have a small looking chin or a short round aging face or head and neck stress all due to the wrong bite position. We are physically compromised for our entire lifetime because we are not aware that the problems we experience are directly related to having a less than optimal jaw position.
With “total optimization” using the Face Lift Dentistry® method, the patient has less bite strain, less neck tension, less facial tension, less jaw pain, whiter teeth, better facial proportions, a wider smile and an improved facial profile. In the before photo on the left, she already has porcelain veneers and “smile” type of cosmetic dentistry which did nothing for her face or health.
We suffer from premature aging, body stress, neck pain, headaches, jaw pain and a lot of other problems that actually cause us to appear tired or weak.
The idea of “total optimization” involves the treatment that gives the patient the ability to look their best and to feel their best in every position. Their lips can be closed and the shape of their face looks younger than others their age. They can have a stronger chin and improved facial profile without surgery and also feel more comfortable and have less tension and stress in their faces. The aging patient can have treatment that naturally addresses the aging process and improve their health at the same time. This treatment is about “totally optimizing” your health, your self-confidence and your life.
This is the only procedure that can improve the shape of your face without surgery, or without facial fillers. VENLAY® Restorations utilize a non-invasive method that does not require grinding down your teeth. In the photo on the left, she already has porcelain veneers with cosmetic dentistry and with anti-aging dentistry that did not improve the shape of her face. In the photo on the right, she has “total optimization” of her natural facial features with the Face-lift Dentistry® method. She is now the “person she was always meant to be”.
Almost every dentist does porcelain veneers and there are lots of dentists that call themselves “anti-aging dentists” but their treatment is the same type of cosmetic dentistry that has been done for the last 20 years. They only treat your smile while your jaw position and health is usually not improved. Your overbite gets worse because when they lengthen the upper teeth with veneers the overbite gets deeper. Most smile dentistry is cosmetic camouflage that only helps you when you smile. This is nice but it won’t improve your health, nor your facial proportions or your profile. Your bite is not corrected and the shape of your face is not improved with smile dentistry. Smile dentistry helps the patient only when they are smiling (about 5% of the time) while Face Lift Dentistry® helps the patient look their best 100% of the time even when they are not smiling.
The best way to look younger is to feel younger. The best way to feel younger is to “optimize” your health, your bite and lower your physical stress level. First of all, do not let an anti-aging dentist or a cosmetic dentist grind down your healthy teeth for porcelain veneers.
Consider idealizing the lower jaw using the non-invasive Face Lift Dentistry® method that is so simple and quick because you don’t have to grind down healthy teeth or need any kind of surgery. Many patients have told Dr. Muslin that the “photos on the Internet are so good that it is hard to believe”.
The VENLAY® restorations have cosmetic advantages over porcelain veneers because they can correct your bite and optimize the shape of your face and can make small chins look larger. It is actually treatment for the facial profile. Patients can have wider smiles, white teeth, improved facial profiles, reduced TMJ problems, look and feel years younger and have balanced facial proportions and the patient will still retain their own unique facial characteristics. This process helps the patient “Be the person they were meant to be.”
She is biting her teeth together in both photos. In the before photo her lips cover her teeth because her jaw closes too far. When the jaw is in the wrong position due to a bad bite, the shape of the face is compromised. These patients suffer with premature aging from a physical and mental perspective because they have a compromised bite.
She did not want to fly across the country for dentistry but after getting braces that caused her face to sink and her speech to get slurry (because there was no room for her tongue) she searched the Internet and found this unique website. Dr. Sam Muslin says, “Be the person you were meant to be without surgery, facial fillers or treatment that takes years”. The proportions of the face can be significantly improved using this method and there are no other non-invasive treatments available that can improve facial proportions and the profile. It only took two plane flights and she stayed about 3 days the first trip and about 4 days the second trip and all 28 of her teeth were completely restored. The part that made the plane flights worth it was that her good teeth were restored with VENLAY® restorations that did not require drilling them down. This makes the treatment much easier for the patient with much less pain and less tension.
Preventing premature aging is the goal of the Face Lift Dentistry® method. Looking years younger and having permanent facial support are also part of the treatment. She already has cosmetic dentistry and veneers in the photo on the left which do not prevent premature aging.
A few weeks after flying back to Florida, the patient called the office and said, “Dr. Muslin changed my life” because now she can speak clearly and “I feel like myself again”. The treatment required removing all of the porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns and fillings which only usually takes a morning and replacing everything with a matched set of teeth that corrected her bite and improved the proportions of her face. She was able to see her real porcelain VENLAY® restorations in her mouth before they were bonded. She was in total control of the results and the ability to see the results and change the results overnight really impressed her. There is no other method available today that allows the patient to see the results with their own faces by having the porcelain slid over the teeth before it is bonded. You cannot do this with surgery or with braces and you cannot do this with a Facelift.
Each patient can choose his or her own tooth color and participate in the design of her own teeth. She wanted her upper central incisors to be longer and square in shape which matches her facial features for a uniquely balanced appearance to her facial features.
There are several reasons why she looks younger. She looks younger because she feels younger. For the first time in her life, she has the “optimized” jaw position for her health and facial features. (Using Dr. Muslin’s method it is very quick and easy). She also has permanent facial support with fuller lips and a more youthful shape to her face. She has teeth that are shaped, sized and balanced to her facial features. The width of her smile is wider and she is glowing with confidence. But, most importantly, she can speak more clearly. She has room for her tongue and a healthy bite.
After treatment, she flew home and a week or two later called and said “Thank you so much, you truly changed my life and I am so happy”. “I feel younger like myself again”. This isn’t just a smile dentistry, or cosmetic dentistry or anti-aging dentistry, this is the “total optimization” of Dr. Sam Muslin’s exclusive Face Lift Dentistry® method.
