Face Lift Dentistry ® – Anti Aging Dentistry
Improving Your Entire Face without surgery
Awarded LA’s Best Cosmetic Dentist for 2014
(This includes Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and Brentwood, Santa Monica, Malibu and the entire San Fernando Valley).
High Tech Dentistry is designed to reverse bite collapse, tooth foreshortening and the loss of vertical dimension in your face. In the past when people felt that their face was looking older or even sagging they assumed the solution was to find a plastic surgeon. Things like facelifts, facial implants, and injections that promised plumper lips or less wrinkles around the mouth were considered. Anti-Aging Dentistry in Dr. Muslin’s opinion is nothing more than cosmetic dentistry because nothing new and no new applications are accomplished. His treatment is designed to change the shape of your face and improve your jaw position using high tech dentistry instead of just cosmetic dentistry.
Some of these surgical procedures as face-lifts can be painful and require extensive healing time, stitches, and several days or weeks off from work. You may look different but not necessarily better because the shape of the aging face is the same. In addition, none of these options add length back to your face that you may have had in your younger years or that you have always needed to look and feel your best. There is another alternative to surgery, face-lifts and facial implants or fillers that is Dr. Muslin’s trademarked procedure Face Lift Dentistry ®.
Treatment for the Grumpy Old Man Face
Older people show lower teeth that are short yellow and worn while younger looking people show upper teeth. Older people have short round faces causing wrinkles in the face and neck. Younger people have egg shaped faces with upper teeth that show when they talk.
Only My Lower Teeth Show!
Age Reversing Dentistry
She only shows lower teeth when she talks and looks older and tired. After getting her bite optimized, she has permanent facial support and looks years younger and feels years younger.
Just Cosmetic Dentistry!
Many cosmetic dentists can improve your smile, which is just cosmetic camouflage, but very few even consider the bigger picture of your face and facial profile. Sure, having a beautiful smile is good for your self-esteem and when you are actually smiling you can look great. However, a little know statistic is that you are only smiling approximately 5% of the time. As such, the remaining 95% of the time you do not look any better. The shape of your face is the same with cosmetic dentistry and porcelain veneers. The jaw position and the bite is the same after getting whiter teeth or anti-aging dentistry. The good news is that the treatment is available that that can deliver an unbelievable smile while also improving your profile, facial shape, lip volume, jaw line, chin position, and significantly reduce the presence of fine lines and wrinkles. Why not have a great smile that also improves your entire face for the 95% of the time that you are not smiling?
Straight teeth and a Strained Face
Having straight teeth does not mean you have a good bite. This patient has straight teeth with headaches and neck strain plus she looks older. What she needed was to get her jaw in the right position for a younger appearance and a relaxed face. Treatment took two weeks, no pain, no drilling down good teeth and no surgery. The secret is with the Face Lift Dentistry ® treatment method.
Improve Your Facial Profile with Dentistry
This patient has facial collapse because of an overbite. Her overbite was corrected without braces or surgery using Dr. Sam Muslin’s exclusive VENLAY ® profile improving restorations removed years of aging, wrinkles, headaches and tension in just a couple of weeks.
Improve Your Profile and Chin Position
Whether you are looking for anti-aging dentistry or you wish your profile was better, Face Lift Dentistry® can address these concerns permanently and quickly. Some patients like their facial length and shape but wish their chin looked better in their profile. Some patients have difficulty chewing because they suffer from overbites or under bites and as a consequence their lips are thin and squished. Some patients experience headaches and jaw pain that keeps them up at night. Regardless of what your concerns and symptoms may be, high tech dentistry is a treatment plan that addresses your health issues and cosmetic goals specifically.
Patients From All Over The World
This patient traveled for hours even though she lived in a prominent city with dentists boasting that they are the best cosmetic dentists. After seeing the before and after photos of this dentist’s work, she knew that it would be well worth the effort. “I wanted to get it right the first time because too many people have had bad porcelain veneers that look fake”.
No Grinding, Non-Invasive Porcelain Veneers
This young man flew in from another country in order to get his veneers. He did not want to have his teeth ground down and he did not want bad veneers.
Untouched and Unaltered Photos
All of the photos shown on this site are untouched and unaltered photos of the results of this dentist. These patients have volunteered to let him show their photos without compensation. None of the images have been edited, touched up or altered in any way so that you can compare the before and after photos honestly.
Age Reversing Dentistry
Face Lift Dentistry ® can lengthen your entire face by giving it a younger more sculpted look. Some patients are simply born with short lower faces and some have eroded their bite through grinding which has caused the shortening. Generally speaking a bad bite continues to get worse with time until it is what many doctors call a “collapsed bite”. The facial length that you once had is eroded away and your face pays the price for your bad bite.
This patient was experiencing self-esteem problems and the effects of aging. He knew his dentist; although very nice could not get the kind of results that he felt he needed. He searched the Internet and transformed his life.
Younger Faces with Optimized Bites
After seeing him on TV, this patient knew he found his new dentist. His family kept telling him to go get treatment and he put if off. He made an appointment right after watching the news about the Dental Face Lift ®.
Dr. Muslin can permanently lengthen and idealized your face, profile, and bite for a more appealing and balanced look in one procedure. Many of us have always desired a more oval shape to our round face or a more sculpted jawline and this is now possible without surgery. The secret to the treatment is to analyze the face and bone structure along with how the patient talks and functions. Then using the best in artistry, technology, science and experience the bite is built to balance with the patients jaw for the first time in their lives. The results are relief from tension and strain along with cosmetics that remove years of aging.
Bad Bites and Sad Faces
As jaw optimization lengthens your face and positions your jaw more ideally, your lips are far less squished and confined. Allowing a more gracious space for your lips helps to reduce the fine lines that form when soft tissue is compressed. In many cases Dr. Muslin can provide your lips more support as well as more space and this makes for fuller plump lips. Likewise less wrinkling or fine lines occur in the lips and all around the mouth area.
Overbite Correction – No Tooth Grinding
This patient has the face of an older man in the before photo and his chin does not touch the line. He is biting his teeth together in both photos but in the after photo the shape of his face is improved, his lips are fuller and his chin looks more masculine. The only way to get this type of result is with overbite correction. His treatment was totally non invasive as none of his teeth had to be ground down and the only way this can be achieved is with Face Lift Dentistry ® treatment and Venlay ® bite correction.
Anti-Aging Dentistry at the Highest Level
She was suffering from facial collapse and jowls because of a bad bite. Her face is short and round in the before photo and her chin does not touch the line. In the after photo her chin touches the line because she had bite correction. She is biting her teeth together in both photos.
Smaller Chins look Larger
Normally, older people show more of their lower teeth when they talk and younger people show more of their upper teeth when they talk. As we get older we grind our teeth down and our chin gets closer to our nose. At the same time gravity is pulling our soft tissue south and the combination of these two effects is an older or even angry looking face. Sometimes the effect of gravity combined with a bad worn down bite can make our faces look sad and even make us appear angry. Face Lift Dentistry ® reverses worn down teeth and revitalizes the face by providing facial support, length and balance to the aging face. By getting the lower jaw in the best position, the chin looks much larger. Chins that look small because they are pushed back from an overbite. Older patients typically do not show enough of their upper teeth so Face Lift Dentistry ® lengthens all of the upper teeth and restores the shape of the patient’s face to a more youthful appearance.
This patient has short upper teeth and a deep overbite that has changed the shape of his entire face. His chin looks small and his face looks round. In the after photo, he has a masculine chiseled chin along with a balanced smile. His teeth are just the right shape and shape for his face and he looks years younger. The most important part of the treatment is the TMJ benefits to bite correction as he also feels younger.
My Grandson Asked Me If I Had Upper Teeth!
Look closely at the before photo, only her lower teeth can be seen. She would not smile and was embarrassed. She flew in from Singapore because no dentists could help her. The treatment gave her a new lease of life and her grandson thought she looked great but did not know why.
She shows very little of her lower teeth and she does not show any upper teeth at all! Face Lift Dentistry® took ten years off of her face.
Dr. Muslin has the ability to predictably change the occlusion so that the upper teeth are more visible when smiling and also when simply talking or at rest. The effect is a much younger and more refreshed appearance. We no longer look grumpy when we are not smiling and we can now have a younger appearance with Face Lift Dentistry.
Under Bite Correction Without Surgery
Some younger patients already have the symptoms of an older person in the sense that they show very little upper teeth. This can occur when their teeth are simply too short or undersized for their face. When they talk the majority of what shows is their lower teeth and this makes them look older. The bad news is that as they age they will grind down the teeth that are already too short and they will appear older even faster. If you have an overbite your face is already foreshortened because your teeth are not meeting properly and this too can make you look older or grumpy.
If you have an under bite, your lower jaw sticks out in front of your upper jaw. Every patient that we have met with an under bite, has been told that they have to have jaw surgery and a couple years of braces. This means many visits and hospitalization and it may not be successful.
Under Bite Correction From the Front View
This patient has an under bite and her lower lip is in front of her upper lip along with the shape of her face being shorter and she has a little soft tissue collapse. In the after photo, her under bite was corrected without surgery and without braces in a matter of weeks, which improved the shape of her face and her lips.
Under Bite Correction, Non-Surgical – Profile View
Too many patients are not being told that they have a non-surgical under bite correction choice as well as the surgical and braces choice. Most dentists are not aware that under bites can be treated with a faster and a much less invasive treatment. Sometimes the surgery would get better results and sometimes the non-surgical method gets better results. The fact is that just about every patient would choose the non-surgical route if they knew about it. The innovation to this treatment is the development of VENLAY ® when combined with Face Lift Dentistry® treatment. There is a high degree of training required and a lot of technical, scientific and artistic talent required that many dentists possess. This is the treatment of the future and may even be the standard of care in the future.
Getting surgery to her lower jaw and a couple years of braces can be unpredictable. What will she look like? How many visits to the dentist for the braces and how many hours will this treatment take considering appointment time and the time it would take driving to the dental office. How long will the recovery be from the surgery?
Do patients have the time to go through the braces and jaw surgery treatment? She saw Dr. Sam Muslin being featured on a nationally televised TV show and drove several hours just to see him. Her under bite was corrected quickly and painlessly without jaw surgery and without braces.
Face Lift Dentistry ® can also shorten a face that is too long or soften a chin and jawline that sticks out too far as seen in under bite corrections. All of the health issues and aesthetic goals of the patient are considered and a custom treatment plan is developed to enhance the individual characteristics of each patient. All patients has unique combinations of facial features accompanied with dental issues. The goal is to achieve facial esthetics that improve the patient’s health and appearance yet retain their unique facial features. YOU CANNOT DO THIS WITH PORCELAIN VENEERS!
Gum Disease and a Bad Bite
This patient had gum disease with a lot of bone loss. After getting the disease successfully treated, she now has the bite and the smile that has greatly improved her health and her self-esteem.
Improving Your Profile, Chin Position and Jaw line
One of the most exciting results of Face Lift Dentistry® is that it enhances your profile by adding volume to your lips, definition to your chin, and refinement of dips in your face. Often times patients considering surgical procedures like chin implants or “nose jobs” could be better served with non-surgical Face Lift Dentistry ® because the treatment permanently and naturally balances your profile. Some patients need a stronger chin and jawline while others would look best if their chin was not as prominent. Dr. Muslin custom designs your bite to create a jaw and chin position for each patient that yields the best aesthetic and health results possible.
How is Face Lift Dentistry ® Done?
This method painlessly and quickly locates the optimal jaw position for the patient’s face. Using advanced ultra low imaging exposure; the position of the patient’s jaw can be visualized for position accuracy. Otherwise, the dentist is just guessing. The patient can see how their face will look in a mirror with their new jaw position including their facial profile improvements. No computer errors with this method because it is a real life demonstration and test directly on the patients face. This new position is tested before treatment starts to ensure that the patient experiences greater comfort, less tension, pain relief and loves the esthetics.
This patient flew in from Dallas Texas because no dentist could treat her facial profile. They were good cosmetic dentists but they did not understand Face Lift Dentistry ® so she made the trip. The old “porcelain veneer type of smile dentistry” was removed and replaced with bite correcting, profile enhancing VENLAY ® restorations with the Face Lift Dentistry ® method.
TMJ, Headache, Facial Pain Relief, and Neuromuscular Dentistry
Patients that suffer TMJ related pains are treated with various methods that have been somewhat successful. However, many patients have not gotten relief and when they describe the multiple dentists, Prosthodontics specialists, TMJ specialists, Pain specialists and the time and costs, they are frustrated. Face Lift Dentistry ® reconstructs your bite using a mechanical approach that naturally establishes a new position for the patient’s lower jaw. This new position is tested before treatment is started. When the patient is satisfied, all of the old dentistry is replaced with a matching set of new porcelain restorations that establish the new bite.
The Patient is In Charge
The treatment is yielding far more that just an improved profile and chin position. The natural repositioning of the jaw can reduce headaches, migraines, and jaw pain or fatigue also called TMJ. Many patients who suffer with TMJ research neuromuscular dentistry, which is the practice of treating TMJ symptoms. Face Lift Dentistry ® establishes a new bite and the test appliance simulates a more healthy jaw position and allows us to track how much of your symptoms are directly related to your bite.
Many of our patients that experience extreme jaw and facial stress have called us after wearing the test appliance to say “I can sleep through the night”. Others tell us that their “face feels relaxed” and that their headaches are less severe and less frequent. Once the results of the test bite are completed then he custom designs the new bite in porcelain. Everyone is different and nobody is exactly symmetrical so each patient receives a totally unique bite development based upon their health and comfort needs along with their physical needs.
Over Bite Correction Without Braces
The shape of her face, her neck and her lips improved with over bite correction using non-invasive, no prep VENLAY ® restorations because you cannot do this with just porcelain veneers. This patient wanted a great smile but she needed bite correction to enhance her entire face.
This patient is a prominent surgeon and was always hiding his smile. He suffered with TMJ issues and dark stained tetracycline teeth. He would smile with his lips together like most people that don’t like their teeth. But, he was considering porcelain veneers which would help with his upper teeth but no with his lower teeth. Porcelain veneers would do nothing for his health or his bite. The dentists that he saw wanted to grind down his teeth for porcelain veneers and he just did not like the invasive nature of the treatment. After seeing Face Lift Dentistry® and Dr. Sam Muslin on “the Doctors” national TV program, he decided to fly to California to get it done. After his wife saw the potential results she decided that she would also get the treatment and both of them were happy with the results to such a degree that they signed the “release” form to allow Dr. Muslin to show the results of his work.
He did not want the Hollywood White Smile. He wanted a professional smile that was clean, white and believable. He has seen too many fake porcelain veneers in his home state and chose his own color for his VENLAY ® overbite correcting restorations. He never knew that an overbite could be corrected so fast without braces. He said that this is a huge improvement in technology.
Correcting Small Chins
Deep overbites and bite interferences can be corrected so that you look younger and more vibrant. Deep overbites cause the chin and the lower jaw to be pushed back and as a consequence your chin and jaw can appear too small. In profile, people with deep overbites sometimes suffer from what is commonly called a “weak chin” or “recessed chin” and the lower half of their face appear far shorter than it should be. Face Lift Dentistry ® can reduce or eliminate your overbite and permanently improve your facial length, chin size in one procedure. The reason the chin looks small (when it is not that small) is due to the overbite forcing the jaw in a recessed position. When the overbite is quickly and easily corrected, the chin position is in a healthy position and looks much larger.
Her overbite was eliminated and her jaw position was dramatically improved. The length of her face was permanently restored for a more appealing and youthful look.
Fast Treatment is Best for Most Patients
Speed is another positive of Face Lift Dentistry ®. Dr. Muslin has the most high tech equipment and truly unprecedented hand skill, which allow him to move quickly and accurately. One of the most critical but forgotten things to consider when picking a dentist is the dentist’s ability to use his hands. A dentist’s work can only be as good as his fine motor skills will allow. Dr. Muslin has an unbelievably refined ability with his hands that keeps the procedure time to a minimum. The entire procedure can be done in as few as two treatment visits about 2 weeks apart with a couple of short visits after completion the next day to “dial in the details”.
Bad or eroded bites can also restrict your ability to breathe. As your teeth are worn down shorter and shorter each year your tongue gets less room in your mouth. Face Lift Dentistry ® can create more space for your tongue that allows for better breathing during the day and at night. Better breathing is a huge health benefit that has improves the lives of many of our patients.
Buck Teeth Corrected in Two Weeks
Some patients simply need their teeth to have better proportions. Perhaps the front two teeth are too big or bucked out. Maybe the side teeth are too small and filled with gaps. Regardless of the condition porcelain veneers can be a great solution. However, there is an art to closing gaps re-proportioning teeth with veneers to picking the right dentist to do the work is crucial. Too often we see patients that have attempted to close gaps with veneers and they end up “horse teeth”. Dr. Muslin then has to remove all of the existing veneers done elsewhere and artistically design a proportioned look for the patient.
Non-Invasive Porcelain Veneers
Many of our patients that choose Face Lift Dentistry ® need little to no grinding on their natural teeth at all. Dr. Muslin has always strived to save as much healthy tooth enamel as possible and because of this belief he often creates natural looking porcelain veneers without drilling healthy tooth enamel. This means no shots and no pain!
Dr. Muslin’s veneers are totally custom designed for you and you are part of the aesthetic decisions. While we will offer you guidance in picking the color, ultimately the choice is yours. Likewise, we will walk you through the shapes and style that will best compliment your facial features but you are the final decision maker. This level of customization is why all of Dr. Muslin’s patients have a unique look. Otherwise, everyone’s porcelain veneers look the same. To achieve the best possible results, Dr. Muslin works on each patient’s porcelain veneers with his ceramist.
Your Totally Custom Look and Color
You will notice that every single one of Dr. Muslin’s patients has their own look. No two patients have exactly the same color or shape and this is because he does a custom design to meet each individual patients goals. We will offer you guidance and advice as to which color and shape would compliment your facial features the best but the ultimate decision is all yours. Some patients want a totally natural and subtle look while others are trying to achieve a brighter and more impactful smile. Take a look at the two patients below that clearly have different aesthetic goals. You may think that one of Dr. Muslin’s patients went too white or that one did not go white enough but this is the range of options you should have available to you as you make decisions for yourself.
