Crooked teeth are usually the result of an overcrowded mouth, leading to teeth that are twisted, overlapped, angled, rotated, and misaligned. While crooked teeth can add unique character to a smile, it’s understandable to want straighter teeth. At TEETH @ Tiong Bahru in Singapore, we offer various orthodontic treatments to straighten crooked teeth, including Invisalign® clear aligners, and alternatives to braces for crooked teeth such as bonding and veneers.
Dental health and overall health go hand in hand.

Gingivitis is the most common form of periodontal disease and can be reversed if caught and treated early.
