When people with underbites view this website, their biggest concern is that the results they are seeing and the videos that they are watching are too good to be true. They find it hard to believe that an underbite and large chin can be reversed so easily without surgery or any downtime.
This patient had a bilateral crossbite and underbite. Braces did not fix his underbite. Jaw surgery was his next option; then he found this alternative solution which requires no surgery or braces. Three months after treatment, he willingly agreed to a post-treatment video testimonial. He explains living with his new bite and jawline, experiencing the VENLAY® Restorations and how the aesthetics have changed his life.
Dr. Muslin says, “bite correction is a lot easier with this method, which I developed over many years.” “I had to work on the porcelain personally to perfect this method and to get bite and jaw position results that are safer and more predictable than any other bite correction method.” Both his crossbite and underbite were corrected by using JawTrac® Alignment and VENLAY® restorations that are built over his healthy tooth enamel. No teeth had to be ground down, so no shots were necessary, and very little pain was involved.
This patient is smiling a lot more and feels much happier. His friends have noticed a remarkable difference and commented that his teeth look much better. They do not understand how such a radical transformation can take place in such a short period. He did not need large chin reduction surgery. Dr. Muslin’s method takes advantage of the patient’s natural biology to make a protruding chin look like a normal size chin by realigning the jaw position.
His bite was actually corrected by improving the position of the lower jaw using VENLAY® Restorations instead of jaw surgery. The problem with jaw surgery is that patient’s don’t always heal correctly. With the Face Lift Dentistry® method, the jaw position is tested in advance, which you cannot do with jaw surgery.
Look carefully at the two photos. Yes, we know that the beard is being used to try to hide his large looking chin. But, when his chin is moved to its ideal position, it is actually a much smaller chin. The chin is not really as large as it looks in the before photo on the left.
As long or longer than any other dental restorative method and it is much quicker, safer and is more predictable. The upper lip is moved forward to correct the middle part of his face with the VENLAY® restorations, his cross bite was also corrected and the tooth size matches the proportions of his face.
It usually costs more that jaw surgery and braces because it does more. You could not get the wide smile and whiter teeth with surgery. The cost is directly related to how many teeth need to be treated and how much dentistry the patient needs. We cannot quote an average because the cost varies widely.
Call the office and schedule an appointment is the best method if you can drive in. If you need to fly in, then call the office, discuss your needs and then you can get our email address so you can send us photos of yourself, a 15-second video and it is also very helpful if you could get a cell phone photo of your dental x-rays. We could give you some idea as to the cost you're your treatment once we know more about you.
Each restoration fits each tooth individually and they are permanently bonded to the teeth. They chew like teeth, they feel like teeth and they look better than most people’s teeth. They are strong and the patients eat, brush and floss normally. Each individual VENLAY® restoration is bonded, using Dr. Muslin’s unique method.
It usually takes only two plane flights a couple of weeks apart so we can make the VENLAY® restoration for each one of your teeth. Dr. Muslin works on every patient’s porcelain restorations personally to make sure his design is followed and the jaw simulators he uses are properly set.
