It is said that these celebrities had tried different types of dental treatments but still that desire for a perfect smile was elusive. The introduction of dental veneers was a glamorous game-changer not only for celebrities but for everyone who wanted a perfect smile.
Today, dental veneers are a popular choice amongst patients. In the previous year, Turkey welcomed over 300 000 foreign patients who wanted to have dental implants –dental veneers were among the sought after treatments.
Are you wondering why hundreds of thousands of patients prefer getting this treatment in Turkey? Read on to find out!
What are Dental Veneers?
You can think of dental veneers as wafer-thin, customizable shells of tooth designed to cover the front surface of the natural teeth so as to enhance your appearance. Simply put, these customizable shells are placed in the front of the teeth in a way that changes the teeth’s color, shape, size, or length.
This dental restorative process masks the visible dental surface of the tooth and it corrects any aesthetic problems that may have been caused by tooth fractures or decay.
Most dental veneers are either made from porcelain or from resin material. The former is the most preferred type of veneer because it can resist stains better than resin veneers. Your dentist will most likely help you decide on the best choice of veneer material to use.
No matter the type of veneer material that will be used on you, all types of veneers offer the following advantages:
- They give a natural tooth appearance. This means that people won't tell if you had dental surgery or not.
- They are not harmful, in fact, gum tissues tolerate porcelain very well.
- As mentioned earlier, veneers give a perfect smile.
- They come in different colors and they are easily customizable.
- Generally, veneers don't require extensive shaping prior to the procedure that dental crowns do.
Get a Beautiful Smile in a Country with Stunning Scenery
Turkey is a country rich in history and culture. Considering that Turkey was once home to the world’s three great empires – Byzantine, Roman and Ottoman – you can rest assured that the country has so much to offer. Before or after you get those perfect teeth you have always desired, you can tour the country and view amazing scenery from beaches to historical mountains. Did we tell you that you will have a meal in Europe while you enjoy a clear-cut view of Asia?
Turkey for Teeth? A Real Bargain
According to our own statistics, Turkey is bound to welcome close to 2 million foreign patients in 2023. At the present moment, the country receives close to a million foreign patients who come for different medical and cosmetic procedures.
But what makes Turkey this appealing to medical tourists, have you ever wondered about that?
Well, to answer you, medical tourists keep on flocking Turkey because of the quality treatment being offered at a reasonable price. Quality healthcare treatment, whether cosmetic or medical, doesn’t have to be expensive and reserved for the affluent only –everyone should be able to afford.
Veneers cost around €700 in the UK, $925 and $2,500 per tooth in the US, whereas they are priced at €300 in Turkey –this means that you can save up to 60% to 70%. Having low prices doesn’t mean that the quality is compromised. The prices are low because Turkey has a low cost of living and there are too many hospitals and clinics – this forces many medical institutions to lower their prices so to attract many clients/patients.
No Waitlist, Top Quality
Dental clinics around Turkey, from Istanbul to Izmir, use technologically advanced equipment to deliver treatment –this is one of the reasons why the success rate is sky-high. Most of these institutions are accredited by international organizations and so are their dentists. Medical education in Turkey is strictly regulated and this means that for you to qualify as a medical doctor or dentist, you really have to prove yourself. Many of the dentists have graduated from top universities around the world.
