Extreme Makeover & Face Lift Dentistry
Andrew, one of Dr. Sam Muslin’s patients, had his entire bite completely optimized, with every tooth in his mouth being treated with non-invasive porcelain veneers that also cover the tops of his teeth. This patient had his bite lifted, his teeth permanently whiter, his teeth permanently longer, his lips supported, his face lengthened with his jaw three dimensionally repositioned without having to grind down any of his good teeth! No surgery and it only took two visits per arch. The best cosmetic dentists in Los Angeles do not have to grind down your good teeth to place porcelain veneers.
Two Levels of Cosmetic Dentistry
This patient could have had his upper ten teeth treated with porcelain veneers. His smile would have been a little better but there would have been a huge difference in color between his upper and lower teeth. His bite would NOT be improved but he would have a little better smile. His lips and his face would look the same if only the 10 upper teeth were treated. However, he chose the best level of treatment that improved the health of his entire body by optimizing his bite. It is called Face Lift Dentistry. There is only one dentist that has developed this level of care and perfected its delivery.
Non-Invasive Porcelain Veneers
The advantage of getting non-invasive porcelain veneers is that the natural tooth structure is preserved. Considering how long people are living, it is far better to save the natural tooth structure. The porcelain veneers can be replaced 20 years from now using magnification dentistry without hurting or grinding down the natural teeth. The longest patient in the practice with porcelain veneers has had them over 25 years and his teeth still look far better with the aging porcelain veneers rather than his aging teeth. There is no need to replace them. Caution, some of the best cosmetic dentists in Los Angeles still grind down the natural tooth structure to do porcelain veneers.
Most people get their bite randomly at age 13. There is no real science behind how most of us got our bite. The teeth erupted one at a time until they hit and that is it. Some patients got their teeth straightened with braces but never achieved the best height to their bite. As the years go by, the bite gets worse and the level of facial collapse increases. Bite optimization creates the best bite for the patients face. The length and thickness of the lips, the jaw position, the sizes of the jaws, speech patterns, TMJ and neuromuscular problems and the cosmetic dentistry goals of the patient are all considered in order to develop the very best cosmetic dentistry and dental health for the patient. This level of care is considered the best cosmetic dentistry possible in Los Angeles, Los Angeles and Santa Monica and is call Face Lift Dentistry.
