A weak chin, also referred to as a receding chin, refers to a lower jaw bone that is either less developed (a congenital disability) or pushed back into the TMJ (chin recession), creating a chin and jawline that look like it leans inward toward the body. This makes the chin less pronounced, and it can create an unbalanced facial appearance.
Medical professionals sadly overlook the most sensical solution to correct a weak chin and overbite. Whereas they mostly recommend jaw surgery and braces, the correct solution is non-surgical overbite correction and jaw alignment without surgery or braces.
Other specialists offered this patient limited and invasive options requiring orthognathic jaw surgery and braces. However, Dr. Sam Muslin was able to fix this dental problem without jaw surgery and without years of braces. In the after picture below, you can see the remarkable results of Dr. Muslin’s high-tech and non-invasive solution that uses Face Lift Dentistry® with JawTrac® and VENLAY® restorations.
Before visiting Dr. Muslin, this patient saw five dental specialists, who all recommended jaw surgery and braces. Although jaw surgery may correct the bite, the outcome is not predictable. If Dr. Muslin believes that jaw surgery offers a better solution he will tell the patient. Nonetheless, most cases can be treated without surgery and without braces. Dr. Muslin is even able to provide his solution when surgery and braces have failed to help a patient.
The jaw surgery with braces route is not the best choices for most patients. There are numerous downsides to consider:
In this video, the patient talks about how an overbite and receding chin negatively affected his life. Other specialists were not able to help him, but he’ll tell you about how Dr. Muslin’s non-surgical treatments changed his life for the better.
The limited options other specialists suggested for correcting this patient’s weak chin and overbite didn’t feel right to him, so instead, he had porcelain veneers placed on his upper and lower teeth. However, the veneers did not solve the problem. Desperate for a solution he decided to see Dr. Muslin and learn about his non-invasive dentistry treatments.
Dr. Muslin will tell you that veneers cannot correct an overbite, underbite or misaligned jaw. Veneers are a type of cosmetic dentistry that does not improve your health, but only helps to change the smile. Plus, veneers require grinding down your healthy teeth, which is destructive and unnecessary to getting the results you want.
Dr. Muslin is able to offer a non-surgical overbite and receding chin treatment that is effective at correcting these problems. It goes deeper than cosmetic dentistry to improve dental health, while it also creates a beautiful smile. By using JawTrac® to align your jaw and VENLAY® Restorations with the Face Lift Dentistry® method to correct your overbite and receding chin you will have a balanced bite to compliment your face and have a more attractive and youthful appearance overall.
Dr. Muslin uses JawTrac® to find the correct placement for your jaw. It is a much more predictable and effective method for determining how the jaw should be moved than jaw surgery and neuromuscular dentistry.
While jaw surgery requires guesswork and the hope that the final placement will be correct, JawTrac® allows the patient to experience the new jaw position in advance through a temporary appliance the patient wears prior to treatment. You will already know how you will feel and how your speech will sound before you start receiving the treatment.
I would say do it, and do it now!
During the next part of the correction process, Dr. Muslin uses VENLAY® Restorations, which are not the same as veneers or merely a cosmetic solution. VENLAY® Restorations permanently move the jaw into the ideal position discovered with JawTrac®. They create whiter, straighter teeth that maintain the natural tooth structure without grinding.
This method comes with highly predictable results that can correct the bite even when jaw surgery and braces have failed.
He did not realize, until after receiving Dr. Muslin’s treatment, how much tension and difficulty with eating he had been experiencing before. The treatment took away the pain and made the bite feel better. After the treatment, he said about his jaw, “It actually feels like it’s where it’s supposed to be – it fits together.”
As a bonus, he now feels great about how his chin and his new look. This non-invasive, high-tech method is a confidence booster that changes lives for the better.
The cost of Face Lift Dentistry® with JawTrac® and VENLAY® Restorations seems high, but it’s absolutely worth it compared to the cost of jaw surgery. Surgery comes with drawbacks that can create hidden and unexpected costs. You might find that the benefits of Face Lift Dentistry® create a better value when every aspect is considered.
Face Lift Dentistry® generally takes up to a month to complete as it takes three weeks to make the VENLAY® Restorations. Most patients go home during the three-week period. The most remarkable benefit is that there is no healing and aftercare time. Compare this experience with jaw surgery, which requires extensive healing time which interferes with life responsibilities such as work and school.
Risks of surgery can result in added costs, and surgery doesn’t always entirely solve the problem. Many patients require additional surgery or braces, which increase the cost and add months or years to the correction period. Add up the many costs of surgery and other corrective procedures, and you may experience a hefty financial toll, as well as a physical and emotional one.
Plus, surgery ends up being a gamble on risks and uncertain results. But, with the Face Lift Dentistry® method and VENLAY® Restorations you get to try out and see the results prior to treatment.
After experiencing Dr. Muslin’s solution for a receding chin and overbite, this patient described the doctor as an artist with the technique and technology to back up his artistry. He is passionate about creating the best outcome for each patient, without cutting corners.
Dr. Muslin adjusted his specialty and his techniques over more than 40 years in dentistry to offer patients more advanced bite correction and jaw alignment options. While other dental specialists will continue to turn to surgery and braces, Dr. Muslin offers the painless and effective method of Face Lift Dentistry® with JawTrac® and VENLAY® Restorations.
"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."

"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 from 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."
