Turkey Teeth- Is it Worth it?

‘Turkey teeth’ is a common phrase now, amongst both dentists and the public. But, are the huge savings you get from travelling abroad to get your ‘Turkey teeth’ really wort it?

What are the risks of having ‘Turkey Teeth’ done?

  • Cosmetic dentistry clinics in Turkey are removing the nerves out of young people’s teeth, and fitting crowns instead of veneers – all without the consent or knowledge of the client. This makes it a cheaper treatment but patients are left with massive amounts of damage to their natural teeth.
  • If you opt for cheaper veneers in Turkey, in the case of things going wrong, you are not covered in the same way and more often than not you can end up spending many more thousands of pounds trying to fix the problems. The initial savings presented when getting your ‘Turkey teeth’ may actually mean you end up spending way more in the end than if you’d have had your smile makeover done in the UK.
  • Unfortunately for every success, there is a horror story of dental tourism gone wrong, with the majority of cases leading to the following issues:
    • Intense long-lasting pain
    • Overly sensitive teeth making it difficult to eat or drink
    • Exposed nerves, leading to further invasive treatments
    • Ill-fitting veneers can be too big or too small for the size of the mouth
    • Infected gums, which can spread to the sinuses and even to the bone if left untreated
    • Rotting teeth
    • Excessive swelling
    • Poorly bonded veneers can fall off easily
Natural teeth are drilled down so much before Turkey teeth are fitted
This shows the drilling of the natural teeth done to prepare most smile makeover cases abroad.

 

How WE do Things Differently

Smile makeovers using veneers at Cheadle Hulme Dental require minimal preparation to the natural teeth, meaning they are hardly drilled down at all. You will also be fully insured meaning that if anything goes wrong we will fix it for you. We use the highest quality materials and spend a longer amount of time with our patients than they would do abroad. We only employ dentists with a wealth of knowledge and experience, meaning you are guaranteed to get the highest level of care possible. And, if the attractive price tags attached to Turkey teeth mean that is the only way you can afford to get your dream smile then please look into our finance options before deciding that travelling abroad for your smile makeover is your only option.
