A Class II malocclusion is a deep overbite which is traditionally treated with braces, aligners, or jaw surgery. With VENLAY® Bite Restorations, malocclusions can be structurally corrected without jaw surgery or braces and it is usually completed in about a mouth.
Instead of surgically altering your jaws, moving the teeth, extracting teeth or drilling down your healthy teeth, the Face Lift Dentistry® method corrects the shapes of your teeth and optimizes your bite, jaw position and facial profile with a customized layer of bonded porcelain called VENLAY® Bite Correction Restorations. The most remarkable advantage to this method is that your healthy teeth are not drilled down. Most patients with healthy teeth don’t even need anesthetic.
Once bonded to each individual tooth, Venlay® restorations become part of your teeth and they improve the shape, size, color and angulations of your teeth. Your new teeth fit your new jaw position and improve the shape of your face and facial profile simultaneously. Instead of cutting your jaws to fit your teeth, we improve you’re the shapes of your teeth to fit your new jaw position without drilling them down.
Nothing speaks as credible as one of our patients explaining their problems, issues, and reasoning before the treatment and then sharing their actual results with you.
The worse part is that he was treated three times over several years using the clear aligner method. He was physically compromised by having bicuspid extractions, years of orthodontic care and now was told that jaw surgery and more years of braces was his only choice of treatment, and it may not be successful. This method is more predictable because it is tested for success before any work to the teeth begins.
We have treated patients that already had jaw surgery and years of braces. It may not have healed correctly, or maybe the patient did not wear the retainers, or it relapsed even though the patient wore the retainers. Face Lift Dentistry® is the ultimate alternative to jaw surgery because it corrects the bite, improves jaw functionality, improves the jaw position, the facial profile, and gives our patients a smile that is beyond porcelain veneers with cosmetic dentistry.
The Face Lift Dentistry® method improves the shapes of the teeth with VENLAY® Restorations, which adds a porcelain layer custom built by Dr. Sam Muslin and his ceramist for each individual tooth. This porcelain layer corrects the bite without cutting the jaws, and it does it in about a month. Your life can change dramatically in about four days for the first visit; you fly home for three weeks and return to finish in four days (for most patients.)
When teeth are extracted for braces, sometimes the patient's face also collapses because, over time, the treatment results in a deep bite, small-looking chins and a short bite. With these patients, the lower teeth erupt too much, and they sometimes touch the roof of the patient’s mouth. This is a common problem but not an easy fix. Every dentist this patient saw said the same thing. “Your only choice is jaw surgery and braces.” Today, there is an alternative treatment to jaw surgery, clear aligners, braces, orthotics, functional orthodontics and drilling down your healthy teeth for a full mouth reconstruction. Small teeth, a small chin and a posterior open bite are “optimized” in about a month.
When the teeth are not aligned properly the jaw can be forced back towards the throat, the chin can look very small, and the face becomes short and round. Malocclusions and misaligned jaws impact the shapes of our faces and our facial profiles. Most patients do not realize that aging too fast is the result of a bad bite, misaligned jaws and a malocclusion. Uneven tooth wear accelerates the aging process with some patients saying that they have “Roller coaster teeth.”
He had Invisalign 3-times and was very hopeful each time. The dentists believed that the clear aligner method could help with bite correction. Why did clear aligners fail multiple times?
Our experience is that clear aligners can make the teeth straighter but fall short of bite correction or jaw alignment at this level. This method improved the shape of his face, his bite, health, chewing functionality and has a masculine chiseled chin that was unmatched by all previous methods.
Jaw surgery has made some remarkable improvements for patients. The Jaw surgery techniques have improved over the years. However, even with the best jaw surgeon, the surgical option, can be very unpredictable. Many patients falsely assume that if they go through the pain, loss of work and loss of income with the surgical option, the bite will be corrected. We see patients that had jaw surgery years ago that still need better jaw alignment that was impossible to achieve with jaw surgery and braces.
You can get jaw surgery and years of braces or clear aligners that may not be successful. You can get your teeth drilled down to little pegs for a full mouth reconstruction and have porcelain veneers to help you look better but no real health benefits with veneers. Cutting down your healthy teeth presents long term health problems with lots of expensive treatment. Porcelain veneers do not fix bites. Veneers do not improve your jaw line and cannot correct your jaw position. The ultimate treatment needs to be done more quickly and have results that are more reliable. This method needs to be non-surgical, and non-invasive.
