It’s not just about the good hospitality of the locals or great food and nightlife. Istanbul is also a top city for dental care –and this is something that most people do not realize.
This Turkish city is home to thousands of dental clinics that provide quality treatments at an affordable price. But when it comes to the best dental clinic, there’s one that actually stands out.
Istanbul Dental Center is its name.
Besides being accredited by the Turkish Ministry of Health for Medical Health tourism, this dental center is also certified by ISO – 9001:2015 Quality Assurance Certificate From the United Kingdom.
Istanbul Dental Center is a state-of-the-art facility that has the most experienced team of dental professors, endodontists, and dentists. This dental center has found favor in the eyes of many international patients as it always welcomes a flock of medical tourists from countries such as the UK, France, Italy, Saudi Arabia and Germany.
With that said, now let's take a look at the most popular dental procedures performed at the Istanbul Dental Center.
Sometimes referred to as instant orthodontics, dental veneers are customizable shells of a tooth that can correct chips, stains, and even deeply discolored teeth giving one a beautiful smile. So you can actually think of dental veneers as a procedure that masks the visible dental surface of the tooth and it provides a highly conservative approach to esthetic smile makeovers.
While veneers provide a conservative way to repair damaged teeth, the procedure has to be performed by expert dentists, and this is why we always recommend Istanbul Dental Center.
This is one of the most common dental procedures performed at Istanbul Dental Center. Teeth whitening, as the name suggests, is meant to whiten darkened teeth. Smoking, drugs, tea, coffee or even berries are some of the things that can cause teeth staining.
There are other methods of teeth whitening, such as the over-the-counter products, but they are not reliable and they do not guarantee long-lasting whiteness like procedure performed at Istanbul Dental Center. In fact, bleaching products can cause more problems and end up damaging your teeth sometimes.
Thousands of patients who had stained teeth have left Istanbul Dental Center with new attractive smile design. It only takes a couple of hours to perform this procedure at the dental center, so you don't have to worry about spending the whole day in the clinic.
Istanbul Dental Center has a department of oral implantology –this is a dentistry field that focuses on dental implants. Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with damaged or missing teeth that look like real teeth and work with artificial teeth. Implants have the same appearance as natural teeth and they also function the same way. It’s actually difficult to tell the difference between a natural tooth and an implant.
The implanted tooth directly bonds with the jaw bone, protruding from the gum towards the oral cavity and acting as a buttress for the tooth crown. So this procedure is meant for people with damaged or missing teeth. Dental implants eliminate the need for constructing bridges and they also prevent the loose movements of dentures.
Istanbul Dental Center guarantees all of its patients a successful dental implant procedure. This can be evidenced by the clinic’s overall success rate of which is at 98%. It takes about 5 to 10 minutes to perform this procedure.
Porcelain veneers are one of the two types of dental veneers. This type of veneer is often confused with composite veneers, mainly because they serve the same purpose. The purpose of all types of veneers is to give you a pleasant smile by restoring teeth that are worn, stained, chipped, damaged or slightly misaligned, filling a gap between two teeth, or even alter the length and size of teeth.
Unlike the other types of veneers, porcelain veneers are manufactured in the laboratory. Istanbul Dental Center has a team of experienced dentists and professors who have mastered the art and science of customizing porcelain veneers that fit your smile.
The porcelain veneers procedure requires two appointments: one to prepare the tooth and take the impression that will serve to make the veneer in the lab; and a second to place the veneer onto the patient’s tooth.
Dental crowns also referred to as caps, are designed to support and maintain the functionality of a diseased or rather a damaged tooth-teeth. This painless procedure can help restore your original tooth-teeth appearance, size, strength and shape.
Dental crowns are placed over a damaged tooth so as to help improve its appearance. Dentists at Istanbul Dental Center perform this procedure customizing the crown according to the correct color and shape that is comfortable for you. In some instances, you may be advised to wear a temporary crown for a few days or weeks so as to see if it matches their shape and bite.
Metal, porcelain and stainless steel are the three materials usually used to make a dental crown. The durability of the crowns depends on how you take care of it. You have to treat it as if it were a normal tooth, this implies that you have to brush as you would do to other uncapped teeth. Dental crowns can last a lifetime, but you have to get a regular check-up from your dentist.
Root Canal Treatment
Istanbul Dental Center has a whole department dedicated to rooting canal treatment. This department is actually a field of dentistry known as endodontics. Root canal treatment or endodontics is the treatment of inflamed, infected or dead pulp without damaging other teeth, gums or nerves.
Most root canal treatments involve at least two visits to the dentist. In the first visit, the endodontist will take an X-ray to see the shape of the root canals and determine if there are any signs of the cavity within the center of the tooth. In the second visit, the endodontist will then numb the area near the tooth using local anesthesia and start cleaning the root canal.
Laser Teeth Whitening
This is an advanced way of whitening patients' teeth. This dental procedure is a convenient method for patients who have limited time. Laser teeth whitening provides effective cleaning in a short period of time. Your dentist will apply a whitening gel on the teeth and it is activated using a UV ray or laser and whitening continues for 50 to 60 minutes.
