Dr Haidar is a Dentist that has an interest in orthodontics once he found a number of his patients required it and had nowhere to go. Many preferred their treatment to be in-house under one roof. Dr Haidar undertook years of extensive training and study to be able to provide some of the most cutting-edge treatment in digital orthodontics aligners and braces. As he didn’t want to give up his general practice he chose to stay as a general dentist that provides orthodontic treatment.

I don't like the look of my front teeth. What can I do?

This is one of the most common questions we get having been in the dental industry for a long time. Unfortunately many of us aren’t born with a perfect set, or have had an accident that could have impacted the way our teeth look.

We know having a good set of teeth can make you feel and look better and this can have many advantages in your personal and professional life. Often these issues are left for a long time and you may feel helpless, embarrassed, and might think they are going to stay this way for ever.

In our experience it’s best to talk to the experts about what the issues are and let us understand what are the problems and what approaches we can utilise to make things better for you. We are confident that we can have you feeling confident about your pearly whites.

Sometimes all you need is a clean and some whitening, sometimes it’s just a few small white fillings that can correct the issues, and some cases either some orthodontics or specialized ceramics.

Whatever the case is we would love to help you. We have invested in some of the most incredible equipment in dentistry enabling us to take 3D scans of your teeth and show you a 3D model to discuss how we can make things better. All without making you feel judged or pressured.
