The shape of your face and facial profile, can now bring out your natural beauty by aligning the bite with the TMJ. It is safe, predictable and only takes a couple of visits to Santa Monica. No jaw surgery, no braces, no grinding down your healthy teeth.
This is the actual result of the non-invasive, non-surgical Face Lift Dentistry® bite correction method that changes lives without the risks, pain and time required with the old method.
The treatment on this patient was not cosmetic dentistry and it was not porcelain veneers because veneers cannot improve the shape of the face, or improve the facial profile. The overbite and underbite correction method discussed on this website is an exclusive non-invasive method that develops real beauty that the patient already possesses but it cannot be seen due to a bad bite. True beauty starts with the shape of your face and facial profile, which brings out the patient's natural beauty by aligning the bite to coordinate with the TMJ and her facial structures.
When multiple dental specialists tell you that jaw surgery and braces are your only choice to correct your underbite and you are just about to graduate college and start you first career job, the prospects of the pain, risks and time bring tears to your eyes. The patient has had braces earlier in her life, has congenitally missing teeth, open spaces and now she was told her only solution was to have jaw surgery, braces, possibly dental implants and a full mouth reconstruction too? The underbite correction alternative to jaw surgery eliminates surgery, braces, time and the risks associated with it. It is safer, faster and more predictable.
There are different types of treatment for under bite correction that use porcelain veneers and cosmetic dentistry that is just camouflage. These treatments don’t correct the bite and they don’t change the shape of your face. Underbite correction that’s better than jaw surgery can do more for the patient than just surgically align the jaw.
The treatment that this patient received brought out her natural beauty as the large jaw and large chin appearance was reduced as it corrected her under bite, improved her facial profile, replaced missing teeth, balanced the sizes of her front teeth and the treatment was done in just two to three weeks.
The shapes of her teeth are out of balance because of the results from orthodontics and dental bonding. The shapes of her teeth were balanced to improve her smile and the shape of her face.
Keep in mind; the reason that it takes two or three weeks is for the doctor and his ceramist to create the porcelain. The patient did not have to stay in Santa Monica California for three weeks. The patient flew in for a couple of days, flew home for three weeks and flew back for three days to bond the porcelain with his “patent pending” method that has results that are better than jaw surgery.
Beyond Cosmetic Dentistry – This treatment improves the shape of the patients face and facial profile. You cannot improve the shape of the patient’s face with traditional cosmetic dentistry and porcelain veneers. This is a true bite correction method that is safer and more predictable than jaw surgery in many cases. Some patients would gain a better benefit if they went through jaw surgery and if the treatment went as planned.
The secret to this treatment is the ability to show the improvement to the patient’s face on on the very first visit. No computer simulations are used because a simulation that can be manipulated. Instead, this dentist uses the patient’s own face and natural jaw movement to demonstrate the final shape of the face to the patient and to the grandmother in just the first five minutes of the visit. They both were shocked at how much better the patient looked immediately. But, the best part of the demonstration was the patient thought that the jaw also felt much better in the new jaw position.
When the jaw feels better and the patient looks better the treatment is good for the patient’s health and also good for the patient’s self-esteem. This means a lot as we go through all of the trials of life and this patient has a new prospective of her future and herself.
She has a balanced bite and the shape of her face has been idealized to her natural, beautiful facial structures. She did not need jaw surgery, and jaw surgery could not give her the bite and the balance to her tooth sizes. Many patients have this procedure done after jaw surgery to get the best possible results that modern dentistry has to offer.
Most dentists think that a good bite is determined by how the teeth fit together. But, the teeth can fit together very well but unfortunately the bite forces the jaw in the wrong position. Dentists can tell the patient “you have a good bite” when in fact; they have a bite that forces the lower jaw into a bad position.
Our patient’s jaw is in the wrong position when she bites her teeth together. Her lower jaw looks much larger than it really is because of the bite. But, when she has a bite that will allow the jaw to close into the proper position, the size of her lower jaw looks much smaller. The secret to this method is the ability to know where the improved jaw position is located rather than just guess. The health of the patient is greatly improved when the bite and the jaw position are in harmony.
Very few people will ever experience this ideal jaw position during their lifetime. If they have an ideal jaw position, they are one of the lucky few. Most of us never had the best jaw position for our facial structures and as we got older, the jaw position got worse.
This is a method developed by a dentist with nearly 40 years of experience in all areas of dentistry. He presently is the only dentist that understands this method and is working on a course that will be available to teach dentists all over the world. Presently, the wide variety of patients, and the difficulty required by the individual characteristics, health problems and TMJ problems of each patient require a dentist with the understanding of TMJ issues, jaw position skills, the technology and the skills to use them. This patient flew in to Santa Monica with her grandmother and both were very skeptical.
This method, transforms lives because it helps patients live their lives to the fullest. They are more comfortable. They have less head and neck pain and stress. They do not waste energy with a bad bite and jaw position. Instead these patients that get this treatment live better and healthier lives with better sleep, improved self-esteem and a new level of self-confidence everywhere they go.
“I always thought she was so sad as she never smiled but I guess it was because her underbite was so bad. Now, after her underbite has been corrected, she can’t stop smiling.”
"I have been to multiple dentists and orthodontists and everybody has told me that I have no option other than jaw surgery. Then I came across Dr. Muslin who offers a surgery-free and easy to implement solution. The results have been unbelievable.”
