Teeth StraighteningTill The End Of The Month
Presently, your appearance is important and plays a vital role in either leaving a positive or negative first impression. It also affects your social life. The colour and appearance of your teeth contribute to your general appearance, so if you have crooked or misaligned teeth, it may be best to get them straightened. Straightening your teeth does not only improve your appearance but also enhances your oral health and function.
Straightening the teeth has several benefits, but here are a few of them.
There are different teeth straightening options to choose from. Most are effective, and choosing one would depend on how suitable the treatment is for you. In some cases, patients need to combine one or more treatments to get perfectly straight teeth. These teeth straightening options include:
Traditional braces consist of metal archwires and archwires, which gradually move the teeth into their perfect position. Treatment may take about 8 – 18 months, and you need to visit the dentist every 4 – 6 weeks to adjust the bracket and wire.
They are also known as lingual braces. They are similar to traditional metal braces but fitted at the back of the teeth, where the tongue lies. They are custom-made, and the treatment may last for about 6 – 24 months, depending on the severity of the misalignment.
Invisalign are a set of clear aligners. They straighten the teeth within 6 – 18 months, and you can remove them during your treatment to clean your teeth and eat. The Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear aligners, which you would change every two weeks. You need to wear the aligners for about 22 hours daily. The two hours left would be to floss, brush, drink and eat.
The aligners gradually move the teeth, and you would visit your dentist every 6 – 8 weeks to check how your treatment progresses.
Inman aligners are among the fastest teeth straightening options. You can use it if you straightened your teeth in the past and had a relapse. People no longer have limited teeth straightening options as this type of aligners work like fixed braces, although they are more expensive.
If you do not want to wear traditional braces for a long time but want to straighten your front teeth, you can have your perfect set of teeth within 6 – 16 weeks.
These are an alternative to traditional braces. They use the bracket and wire systems to move the teeth into their perfect positions, but the materials are either made of clear or tooth-coloured material. The treatment lasts for about 12 months, and the braces are not easily noticeable.
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of porcelain materials, fitted in front of the teeth. You can use veneers to close gaps, lighten your teeth' shade, fix crowded, protruding or misaligned teeth. You can get veneers fitted in two dental visits.

Highly recommend Museum Dental Suite. Their work is of the highest calibre, professional and friendly. I'm very thankful they for excellent aftercare advice and for making me relaxed and so well treated. I've recommended them to both my family and friends.
I have been undertaking a cosmetic treatment (Invisalign) for around eight months here, off the back of a recommendation of a friend who had the same treatment. The professionalism and perfectionism with which my treatment was delivered was outstanding, as was the general service and were all of the staff I encountered.
My dentist Dr. Wahab Shakir was particularly great, with a friendly, reassuring manner and an eye for detail. He always went above and beyond, without ever being asked.
I'm now almost at the end of my treatment and couldn't be more pleased with how treatment has gone. Given the service and end result I'd also consider it excellent value for money.
Keep up the good work Museum Dental Suites!
Firstly what a great dentist, all the staff were friendly and very helpful as this was my first time here.
I had called for an emergency appointment due to a sudden cracked tooth and Dr Wahab Shakir despite the end of day fast approaching (30 minutes till close) he said he would see me.
The treatment was not straight forward due to the crack but Dr Shakir after a lengthy time managed to save the tooth/restore it and prevent what I believe most dentists would have done which install a crown - Thank you!
Highly recommend this dentist and service and I am grateful for not only seeing me within an hour but also staying passed closing time and finally for doing a Stella job.
This is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.
Best dentist ever hands down. Least painful and least scary experiences here (I'm usually really scared of going to the dentist, and even find the initial anaesthetic injection painful) - they really care about the patient, and making sure you're comfortable, results are also fab. Seriously can't imagine a better dentist!
After lots of research I was very happy with the results and the service at Museum Dental. 100% I would recommend to a friend. I couldn't be more pleased.
