Benefits of Straight Teeth

APPEARANCES MATTER

Having straighter teeth can improve your facial appearance and confidence. A person who is self conscious about their smile will tend to smile with lips closed together or with their hand covering the mouth, which can come across as awkward.

Speech and eating may be improved after braces treatment with straight teeth as braces not only straighten teeth, but improve how the teeth fit together as well.

EASIER CLEANING, LESS BACTERIA

Crooked teeth tend to trap more food and bacteria, as the toothbrush is unable to reach into the crevices. Flossing may be difficult or unable to completely clean. This can cause tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath.

Straight teeth are easier to keep clean and maintain, and usually have less chances of tooth decay, staining and gum inflammation.

IMPROVE YOUR FACIAL STRUCTURE

Apart from straightening teeth, we aim to improve your facial proportions.

Braces bring about a change in the position of the teeth and this can affect the facial structures. The dentist will check your facial skeleton and teeth position and plan to optimise your facial shape. Examples are correcting overbites and underbites which lead to enhanced appearance and symmetry, or expanding your dental arch for a wider smile.

ORTHODONTICS AND SLEEP APNEA

Your general health can be improved. Some patients with sleep apnea may benefit from treatment to expand their oral space and appliances to improve the airway function.

Recent studies have shown that children with narrow jaws, crowded teeth, enlarged adenoids can benefit from early treatment to improve airway and breathing. Symptoms of child sleep apnea include disrupted nocturnal sleep, snoring, fatigue, school difficulties, hyperactivity or inattention.

Is It Necessary to Extract Teeth for Braces?

“I heard that it is necessary to extract teeth for braces. ” “Can I straighten my teeth without extraction?” “Do I always need to pull out teeth for braces?”

NO. It is not always necessary to extract your teeth for braces. 9 out of 10 cases we straighten teeth without extraction. In some cases, extracting teeth for braces could result in an undesirable change in your face shape and facial profile.

At Dental Designs Clinic, our goal is for you to straighten your teeth as painlessly as possible and without losing your teeth. When you come to us to fix your teeth, our braces dentist will do a comprehensive assessment of your teeth, jaws and face. We will then advise you on all your options and how you can avoid teeth extraction for braces.

Types of Braces We Provide

INVISALIGN – CLEAR REMOVABLE BRACES
INVISALIGN – CLEAR REMOVABLE BRACES

Invisalign – Clear Removable Braces

In the past, only painful traditional metal braces were available to straighten crooked teeth.

We now have the luxury of modern technology such as Invisalign clear braces. Get straight teeth without braces (no metal!) to fix crooked teeth quickly, painlessly, and with you in control.

Invisalign uses a set of clear plastic retainers that are virtually invisible. Aligners are removable, which means for important social events, they can be taken out easily. You can eat whatever you like, and teeth are easily cleaned. This is usually a more comfortable option compared to fixed braces as there is less pain.

With invisalign, you can see how the teeth will move and adjust the final result to your liking, even before you start wearing them.

Damon self-ligating braces are a revolutionary shift in braces treatment, with many advantages over traditional braces, more comfortable, less pain and much shorter treatment time, even for complex cases.

Damon clear braces are also available that blend in to your tooth color.

Beautiful and friendly dental clinic, was recommended by my colleague. Been coming here for dental cleaning and fillings. Always a good visit!

J. Kho

This dental clinic has very good staff who are well trained and friendly. The dentists are also very good and will explain the treatment in detail before starting treatment. The equipment is very high tech and I believe they are able to do high quality work as I did my crown here and it looks much better than my colleague who also recently did his at another place. The waiting room is also very comfortable. good job!

C. Zheng De

This clinic is one of the best I have ever seen. I saw dr Justin for my implant which I did many years ago, the tooth was loose, and other drs told me to remove it as they could not find out what brand it was but dr Justin was able to take 3d xrays and locate the brand and specially ordered the part in. he saved me from having to do a surgery to remove and put a new implant which would have cost me a bomb. the tooth looks even better than the original thanks to the experieced dental technician Katsuya from Japan. 

Very happy and will keep coming back for my regular dental. 

G. Hock An

my workplace is close by and I had a problem with my tooth for a few days, so I made an appointment to come down. The receptionist who booked my appointment was very helpful and friendly to explain the way to the clinic from my office. I saw Dr Nicholas who was able to do a root canal treatment on the same visit so that I didn't need to come back. I felt safe and comfortable to do my dental treatment here as the dental picks are all wrapped up and sterilized and only opened before each treatment when im inside. 

P. Wendy

I had an amazing experience at this dental clinic. Dr. Justin Giam is a skilled dentist who explained everything thoroughly. The staff was friendly, and the clinic is conveniently located near my workplace. Highly recommended!

S. Goh

I am so glad I found Dental Designs, it was recommended to me by an expat friend. Dr Rares is the best dentist I have ever encountered. He is extremely conscientious and empathic in his work, with a great attention to detail. His work is stellar,  and he is always tuned in to the patient's needs. I have had multiple dentists in Oslo, Norway and in London, and although some of them have been excellent, I can truly say that not one of them has been of his caliber.

h. hjertenes

Great dental clinic! Dr Giam is very friend and his treatments are very gentle. He is good at explaining his treatment to his patients and a lot of great cafes nearby as well. Excellent customer service and helpful receptionist. Decent location too!

C. MichaelJr

My dental implant procedure here was top-notch. Dr Justin did the surgery for me and he was skillful.The team was patient and made sure I felt relaxed throughout. They even sent me a message to check up on me for post-surgery care. Thank you!

J. Florentyna

Dr. Tiffany Tan did an excellent job with my Invisalign treatment. My teeth are now perfectly aligned, and it was a comfortable process from start to finish. The clinic's hygienist, Kelly, is fantastic as well!

W Y

I can’t recommend this clinic enough, was so glad to have found it. Great facility, really enjoyed the ambience with radio music. But thats beside the point, Dr Tiffany is so terrific, they are so kind and really care about doing a good and meticulous job, and are so professional to share with me all x-rays of my teeth and explaining the issues and the process. I’ve never had any dentists that are so genuine and pro-active to help the patients be informed and understand the situations thoroughly. I feel very assured to be in such good hands. Thank you greatly!

T. Pham

I had a dental veneer procedure to fix my chipped front tooth, and the results exceeded my expectations. The clinic is conveniently close to my workplace, and the entire team was friendly and skilled. A great experience overall!

L. Chia Heng

Dr. Justin Giam and his team are exceptional. I had a replacement for my dental crown, and they made sure I felt comfortable and relaxed throughout. The clinic is just a short walk from the MRT station.

A. H.

I fell down and chipped my front teeth on holiday and came to doc Justin who is my usual dentist. he was able to fix it same day and by now I dont even remember which teeth was chipped. best doc in town!

l. pienkowski

I appreciate the professionalism and patience of the staff here. They did a fantastic job with my ceramic filling, which was much better shape and bite than the other one i had done previously at another clinic, and the clinic's location in the CBD is perfect for me.

R. Phua

The hygienist, Kelly, provided me with the best scaling and polishing I've ever had. The clinic is not only convenient but has friendly receptionists and great staff. I highly recommend it!

L. Josephine

I have been coming to this dental clinic for years and I bring all my family and recommend to my colleagues to come as well, because they are just so good. Especially Dr  Justin Giam, he is very skilled in crowns and veneers for me. My father's implant denture was able to be done smoothly, which was important because we have to fly in to Singapore to come for the dental treatment, so it saves us so much time here. The assistant doctors are also good to do the usual fillings and cleanings without any pain. The receptionists are friendly and helpful for making the appointment a pleasant one. Very good job dental design!

L. Winnie

I needed replacement retainers, and I found that dental designs provide clear retainers with same day pickup. its convienent as its close to my office and I could go out for a coffee while waiting.

E. Michael

My tooth has been hurting on and off for the past months and I ignored it as I was busy. i went to the dentist near my house and was told to extract it and do an implant as it was decayed and the cavity was too big. I didnt want to extract my tooth so i looked for other options and found Dental Designs where I was able to be seen and my tooth could have a root canal treatment and crown done instead of extraction. the tooth is functioning well and I can bite normally, there was no downtime. i strongly recommend Dental Designs as the dentist here is much more skillful and knowledgeable and the receptiontists are also very friendly.

J J

I did a whitening procedure here in the clinic and had good results, my friends commented it was much whiter and I'm happy with the results. there is a little sensitivity but it goes away after one day. highly recommend this clinic if you are looking for a dentist to do teeth whitening. the cleaning was also very comfortable and i didnt feel any pain or bleeding.

L. Kathleen

I read about Dental Designs as I wanted to do Invisalign treatment for a long time, and I chose Dr Tiffany Tan as she has good reviews. During the first consultation, she took time to listen to my concerns and also explained various options for me to suit my needs. There was also no hard selling even though I could not decide to do the treatment on the same day, the staff was also all smiles and very helpful. I came back again with my wife and Dr Tiffany was very patient in explaining my condition and the treatment options again, thus I decided to go with them. I completed my Invisalign treatment after about 18 months and the results are just as what Dr Tiffany promised. All my colleagues and friends are able to see the difference, I had an underbite which is completely resolved. The whole process was very smooth and the whole team was just so helpful and responsive throughout. Kudos to Dental Designs and Dr Tiffany Tan!

L. Ian Jun Jie

The dentists here are very skillful and do a good job, the staff is also very friendly and its easy to book appointments over whatsapp. I recently had to do a root canal and dental crowning for my tooth and the process was easy.

M. Hui Tan

Best experience I ever had at a dental clinic or medical clinic for that matter. I've been to many clinics in UK and Sydney and none of them are as good as Dr Tiffany. I have been using a specially prescribed mouthguard at night which cost me close to 3000 AUD from a specialist in Melbourne as otherwise I would have jaw pain when I woke up in the mornings. I went to a consultation with Dr Tiffany Tan as I wanted to straighten my front teeth which had shifted a little over the years.  Dr Tiffany was able to assess not only that my teeth could be straightened but that the bite was all wrong. I started on Invisalign treatment with her and 2 years later I am able to chew steak and peanuts without wincing, and I do not need the special mouthguard at all. Thanks to Dr Tiffany, I now have a normal life without pain and trust me it is unbelievable how much my bite affected my life prior to my Invisalign treatment. Thank you Dr Tiffany and the Dental Designs clinic team, you guys are amazing!

L. Mallory Alice

I saw Dr Justin to fix my teeth veneers which I had (stupidly) done at a dentist in Thailand as my friend brought me there during a holiday. He was able to check it and advise that my gums were badly infected due to the poor veneers which they did, which was causing a bad smell in my mouth. Dr Justin had to remove all the veneers and the hygienist Ms Kelly is also really gentle and I had the best clean in my life here with the air cleaning. Dr Justin was then able to give me new veneers which are properly fitted and which looked so natural compared to the other ones that were done and I feel like they are my real teeth. There is no more bad smell and my teeth and gums are healthy now!

S. Matthew Lucian

Firstly, I want to commend the dentist here Dr Justin as he is skilled in his work and delivers what he promises.

Additionally, I am seen within 15 minutes each time I come for my appointment, which is not the case when I attend other medical appointments in Singapore. 

The staff are also excellent. 

Z. Nael

Visited this clinic for the first time today after reading all the reviews. Indeed a dental clinic with very good service. The receptionist was very friendly. My appointment was at 12pm and I saw Dr  Justin at 12pm without any delay. He was very professional with his work and casual when talking. Made me feel comfortable. Took pics of my teeth to tell me what is wrong and what needs to be done. Not pushy at all asking me to do this and that. Price is pretty reasonable for where they are located. Thanks for the great service!

M. Yousuff

Popped into Dental Designs on Cecil street for the first time a couple of weeks ago and then a filling just yesterday. Staff are highly professional, from the front desk to the doctor and dental assistant.

Dr Peter Tang is fantastic at what he does. Really good bedside manners, explains the procedure in great detail to make sure I know what is going to be done and also removed my fear of having my teeth cleaned. Will definitely make this place my regular go-to for all dental matters!
