Our Fulham dentists are thoughtful, compassionate and skilled at what they do – so whether you’re maintaining your oral health or transforming your smile, we’ll support you through the whole process.
Our Principal Dentist at New Smile Fulham, Dr Omer Mustafa, is passionate about providing affordable, quality dentistry and listening to your needs. Dr Omer is a trained dentist who offers a broad range of dental treatments, although he has a special interest in transforming smiles with orthodontics.
Before we go any further, you may be asking yourself: what is orthodontics? Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that is concerned with straightening misaligned teeth. Whether you have an overbite, underbite, open bite, crowded teeth or any other kind of imperfection, orthodontic treatment could turn your smile from crooked to flawlessly straight in as little as six months.
As an experienced orthodontic dentist, Dr Omer offers a range of teeth-straightening solutions at New Smile Fulham, one of which is Invisalign. This advanced technology straightens teeth using a series of almost invisible, removable aligners that are tailor-made for your teeth. Treatment is discreet, convenient and comfortable; each aligner needs to be worn for 20-22 hours a day and should be replaced every two weeks as your teeth gradually move towards the desired position. Before you start Invisalign treatment, we will even take a 3D scan of your mouth to show you a simulation of what your smile could look like once complete!
Tooth-coloured braces are another discreet choice that may be more suitable for some orthodontic cases, such as crowding or spacing. Although they are more visible than Invisalign, the stain-resistant ceramic material and reflective wires keep things as subtle as possible. Treatment times can be faster with fixed braces, so they can be a good choice if you want to save time.
Lastly, traditional, metal ‘train track’ braces are an effective option for all patients – not just teenagers! Metal braces are a popular option for patients who can't access NHS treatment because the crowing is too mild. Invisalign and ceramic braces are a more costly option, so metal braces are the best option for a perfectly straight smile on a budget.
No matter your orthodontic problem, our Principal Dentist, Dr Omer, has a solution for you at New Smile Fulham.
