The best way to get an understanding of your treatment sequence, choices and cost is to come in for a consultation appointment for $100.
If you live in another country, we need to know more about you before we can answer questions such as cost or length of treatment time. If you are planning to come to Santa Monica California, send us the following photos, video and dental x-rays described below:
Photos - Have a friend take the following 6 photos of your face:
Video - Take a 15 to 20 second video of yourself telling us what you hope to achieve with Face Lift Dentistry®. We need to watch and hear you speak.
X-Rays – If possible, get a copy of your most recent full mouth set of x-rays.
Make an appointment to come into the office. During your initial visit Dr. Muslin will be able to show you how your new face will look with his treatment during the first five minutes of the appointment. You will see the future of your face with his treatment. Following the consultation, if you want to move forward we would like to take photos, models, dental x-rays, jaw tomography and make your JawTrac® appliance for you to wear and experience the new shape of your face.
When considering the cost of Face Lift Dentistry®, keep in mind that you are asking for an independent non-invasive porcelain restoration for every tooth in your mouth that must fit together to synchronize the functionality to the TMJ, to correct your bite and increase comfort. You expect this method to help you speak your words more clearly, chew effectively, improve breathing, correct the bite, get a new jaw position, improve sleeping, relieve TMJ pain and/or headaches, and improve your facial profile. Face Lift Dentistry® with JawTrac® Alignment and VENLAY® Restorations is far more comprehensive functionally and aesthetically than just cosmetic dentistry and porcelain veneers.
The cost for Face Lift Dentistry® varies from patient to patient. When patients only need either their upper or lower teeth treated to optimize their jaw position, the cost usually varies between $30,000 and $50,000. The level of the desired outcome, dental condition, and the severity of the problem, are all factors that will influence cost.
From the day you begin treatment, it will usually take about 2 to 4 weeks for Dr. Muslin and his ceramist to make your new porcelain restorations to correct your bite.
You will need to arrive in Santa Monica the day before your treatment begins, get a good night’s sleep, and eat a healthy breakfast. First you will have a consultation with Dr. Muslin, and then we will take our records and start your treatment the same day or the next day in most cases. The number of nights you need to stay depends upon your needs, and the complexity of your treatment. Don’t worry; our office is built to do this type of treatment in a highly organized manner that is surprisingly easy compared to most patient's dental experiences.
It takes about 2 to 3 weeks to make the porcelain restorations so you can fly home. Two to three weeks later, you will again need to arrive the day before treatment. We ask that you stay in the area for three to four days; again the number of nights may vary depending on your needs. Once treatment is completed you will then be ready to return home, comfortable, feeling great, and ready to amaze your friends who will wonder, “What did you have done?”
Let's examine your choices of dental treatment. Porcelain crowns require grinding down what is left of your teeth which could cause failure in a variety of ways. You may require root canal treatment from the grinding down of your healthy teeth which traumatized the nerve. Your crowns could fall off because there is not enough tooth remaining. Your teeth could be hot and cold sensitive. With Porcelain Veneers, you cannot correct bites. You cannot add back tooth structure that was lost or worn down with braces.
VENLAY® Restorations are the ideal choice of treatment today and they will last as long as any other dental restorations and add a new surface to your teeth which none of the previous choices can accomplish. Dr. Muslin feels that this is the best treatment available for you today as nothing else can compare.
We highly recommend a consultation with the doctor as you best start or you can send us the following photo views, a 15 second video of you explaining what you want done and if you could go to your dentists office and take a cell phone photo of your dental x-rays, it would also be helpful. Please fill out the contact request form to receive the most innovative treatment that has the incredible advantage of being non-invasive.
"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 form 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."
