This patient has teeth that were too large for her face so, in order for the teeth to fit inside the patient’s jaw, the teeth had to cross over each other causing crooked teeth.
Her front teeth are crooked and push her lips out too far. If she had her teeth straightened, her teeth would be on the outside edge of her jawbone, and that would cause extreme gum recession. Many patients experience the “long in the tooth” look due to gum recession, and VENLAY® Restorations are an excellent non-surgical solution.
Braces on crooked teeth and other forms of moving teeth can be successful but other times the patient has gum recession caused by the braces that was so extreme that gum grafting or cannot help because of the loss of bone on the root surfaces. The bone provides the blood supply and without a blood supply the gum recedes down the root and gum grafting is usually unsuccessful.
Porcelain veneers for crooked teeth can work sometimes but far too often the dentist grinds down the healthy teeth far too much causing sensitivity to temperature and discomfort. Teeth can be made to look perfectly straight without even getting a shot or needing temporary teeth using the Dental Face Lift® Method by Dr. Sam Muslin.
It is impossible to get results like this with porcelain veneers, or with braces or with Invisalign® but it is possible with his Face Lift Dentistry® method.
Under Bites, over bites, open bites, TMJ problems and bad bites can all be corrected using this method. Patients fly in from all over the world to get treatment that goes beyond cosmetic dentistry, anti-aging dentistry and traditional mouth reconstruction methods. JawTrac®, VENLAY® Restorations and the Dental Face Lift® are the high tech solutions and can eventually be the new “standard of care”.
This treatment has changed the lives of many patients and some have come from all over the world. May of your questions regarding treatment and cost are answered here.
