This case demonstrates a functional TMJ and cosmetic profile and facial proportion solution for an underbite and protruding chin. Without jaw surgery, this method improved her facial profile and gave her aesthetic benefits to her entire face and exuberant self-confidence benefits in a very short period of time.
This patient found an alternative treatment to jaw surgery and years of braces that did not require drilling down her healthy teeth like the other bite reconstruction methods. Her treatment only took about a month. She received a non-invasive treatment for a skeletal underbite correction that is safer than the surgical method and has benefits functionally and cosmetically that veneers cannot come close to matching.
I don’t want surgery, and I don’t want my teeth ground down.
Dentists claim that they can “fix” your underbite with porcelain veneers and that they are “minimally invasive”. Don’t be mislead into believing you’re getting an underbite correction because your are getting cosmetic camouflage that is not a bite correction and does little to improve your jaw position, profile or health. You won’t see an improvement in your facial profile because your jaw will still be sticking out too far with the veneer “fix.”
Our method saves your teeth from the drill, no surgery, no braces, no clear retainers because we use JawTrac®, VENLAY® Bite Restoration with the Face Lift Dentistry® Method.
Patients are being told that their only choice of treatment is jaw surgery and braces. This is no longer true. Most patients don’t have to have jaw surgery, and the magical part of this treatment is that they also don’t have to have their healthy teeth ground down for porcelain veneers and/or porcelain crowns.
Locate the new jaw position, test it to make sure that the patient loves the new shape to their face and facial profile. Note: You cannot test jaw surgery. Once satisfied, a VENLAY® Restoration is created for each individual tooth. They are bonded to your healthy teeth and become your teeth with new beautiful color and shape.
There is no doubt that even though it may sound “too good to be true”, this method is todays reality. Her large looking lower jaw now appears to be a normal size. Her facial profile has improved and the boost in self-esteem will change her life.
This underbite correction method uses JawTrac® to find the most natural and comfortable jaw position. Dr. Muslin says, “Jawtrac® can locate the jaw position that the patient was always meant to have but never experienced”. Most patients with underbites do not have a jaw as large as it looks. It looks large because it is a misaligned jaw in the wrong position. JawTrac® aligns the jaw painlessly and every patient gets to feel the difference between the old jaw position and the new jaw position. VENLAY® Bite Restoration correct the underbite by holding the lower jaw in the Jawtrac® position with a natural looking porcelain layer. it has enormous cosmetic benefits beyond veneers and cosmetic dentistry. This method is a comprehensive TMJ functional treatment with cosmetic benefits that are so incredible that it is hard to believe what you are seeing..
Having seen many other doctors about her possible treatment options, our patient learned that with jaw surgery, it is possible to lose taste, have nerve damage and facial paralysis, postoperative pain and complications, as well as the possibility of another surgery – just to name a few. You now have a high tech low-risk alternative to jaw surgery with a more predictable treatment.
JawTrac® alignment is designed to improve the jaw position. Once JawTrac® has proven itself to you, the creation of the VENLAY® Bite Restoration begins. It takes Dr. Muslin 3 weeks to design and build your porcelain. Bonding VENLAY® Bite Restoration is completed in just a morning or two. All of the patient’s teeth are treated with Individual VENLAY® Restorations that are bonded to the healthy tooth structure, and the porcelain becomes part of your teeth. You eat the same, brush and floss the same.
Patients chew well, speak clearly and feel “natural.” Most importantly, our patients have big cosmetic benefits not possible with veneers. The cosmetic dentistry element in perfecting the patient’s smile is actually a bonus to the mechanical and functional treatment goals of JawTrac® and VENLAY® Bite Restoration that jaw surgery and your “best jaw surgeon” cannot provide.
Porcelain veneers cannot correct the jaw position because they do not go over/cover/or change the biting surface(s). Veneers improve a smile but not your face, not your profile and not your bite. Most importantly, the underlying problem stays the same because cosmetic quick-fixes don’t address the cause. You will realize that only getting a better smile is a shallow patchwork approach.
VENLAY® Bite Restoration wrap over the biting surfaces of your existing teeth without harming you or your healthy teeth to collectively work together with the TMJ, bite and teeth to form a new bite and jaw position. This underbite correction method improves the skeletal imbalance and aligns misaligned jaws.
Patients are suffering from full mouth reconstructions, years of braces, teeth drilled down, Orthotic appliances, clear retainer type treatment, jaw surgeries, and patchwork veneers are not getting the comprehensive approach necessary for maximum function and aesthetics.
All of these treatments are less predictable and take a lot of time. Dr. Muslin has experience with all of them, and he realized that there has to be a much better way to correct bites, facial profiles, and facial proportions without all of the risks, time and unpredictability.
Dr. Muslin invented the VENLAY® Bite Restoration, combined it with JawTrac® Alignment, and the Face Lift Dentistry® Method to create the solution that avoids invasive, risky and painful dentistry that can actually harm the patient’s health.
First, Dr. Muslin uses JawTrac® to locate your ideal jaw position without force, pain, or surgery. Patients experience the comfort and pain relief and experience the feeling of their new jaw position with JawTrac®. VENLAY® Bite Restoration is used to build the cusps, ridges, angles, and sizes of your teeth to maintain your new bite and jaw position. With this technology, we can idealize your smile and facial proportioning and get your jaw in an ideal position simultaneously. This is a totally comprehensive method. You will see your new jaw position on your very first visit.

"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."
Patient from Texas
"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."
