Teeth tells the tale of our pursuit of a pain-free mouth and the perfect smile.

From folk remedies and tooth fairies to barber-surgeons and professional dentists, this exhibition explores the history of all things teeth.

Discover over 150 objects, including ancient protective amulets and dental bling, dentures and drills, sketches and spittoons, tooth transplants and toothpaste ads.
