Veneers are dental facets or fittings that a dentist places on your teeth to help you achieve a flawless smile.

They’re usually used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the aesthetic appeal of teeth and give people a brand-new Hollywood smile.

But how much do veneers cost in Turkey, and is it worth travelling for?

How to choose the best dental veneers for you

How Much Are Turkey Teeth In Their Entirety?

As more and more people look for smiles worthy of Instagram, some are choosing to get dental veneers in Turkey with the promise of cheaper costs.

The cost of veneers in UK dental clinics can be anywhere from 50% to 70% higher than their counterparts in Turkey, depending on the material, type of veneers, and the number of veneers needed.

However, such bargains may be more expensive and painful than getting your veneers in the UK.

The risk of something going wrong is high, and you’ll not have protection the same way as in the UK.

Risks include low standards of care, lack of care continuity, difficulties in making complaints or seeking redress, language barriers, and lack of communication between patients and practitioners.

The British Dental Association (BDA) findings show that many UK dentists pick up the pieces following botched cosmetic dentistry procedures abroad.

Unlike the UK, where all medical professionals and services are under NHS, not all cosmetic dentistry clinics in Turkey adhere to standards or have the skills and qualifications needed to perform cosmetic dentistry safely.

You’ll likely spend more to fix the damage to your teeth and oral health. BDA reports show over 65% of patients paid at least £500 for repairs, over 51% spent more than £1000, and one in five paid over £5000 to fix damaged teeth.

Travelling to Turkey

One main reason most people choose dental work in countries like Turkey is because of the cheaper costs.

Qualification standards are lower in Turkey compared to the UK, and the fewer operational costs in the lab and dental fees can drive down costs in clinics with high-quality, reputable services.

However, there will likely be a slip in standards, skills, and qualifications in clinics with highly competitive prices.

Shorter waiting times are another reason why people choose to get dental veneers abroad.

Many practices in the UK still deal with the after-effects of the pandemic, and you can wait extended periods.

Veneer procedures are completed much faster in Turkey, and you can have them fitted in 24 hours.

However, you must consider the consequences of such rushed procedures likely done by unqualified practitioners in a short time frame.

Cosmetic dentists with years of experience and a proven track record offer clients two or three appointments for the entire process of getting porcelain veneers.

Such services include detailed consultations, thorough dental health assessments, a trial design, and the final fitting.

You get more value and excellent aftercare from the best doctors in the comfort of your own country and closer to your home compared to opting for package deals abroad.

What Factors Can Affect Veneer Prices

Factors that can affect veneer prices include the cost of the veneers, materials, type of veneers you need, the cost of appointments with dentists and hygienists, or other procedures that may be necessary.

The process involves various steps and preparations to ensure you get veneers uniquely designed for your teeth, desires, and facial structure.

At Bespoke Smile, expert dentists and master ceramics take time to craft and hand design your veneers to guarantee a beautiful smile.

A lot of time is invested in ensuring you’re happy and comfortable with what you’re getting, and you’re allowed to make changes or adjustments to ensure the veneers are a perfect fit.

How Many Appointments Do I Need?

There are usually three to four appointments which include:

  • An initial consultation

A consultation before the treatment helps to get to know the patient, determine their needs and evaluate what will work best for them.

Unlike Turkey veneers, where you consult on the phone or at the time of treatment, Bespoke Smiles involves an unrushed one-on-one meeting with a qualified consultant.

You get to discuss your concerns, aesthetic worries and goals, and oral health concerns and worries.

  • Assessment and planning

Your oral health is thoroughly analysed to ensure you don’t need procedures before veneer fitting.

It includes scans and photographs to assess your gums, teeth, and bites.

  • 3-step treatment

The 3-step treatment journey at Bespoke Smile starts with a trial smile, ensuring you’re happy with the veneers before fitting.

The second step involves personalising the results and choosing desired features like feel, shape, angles, symmetry, texture, colour, and bite.

The final stage is fitting the permanent veneers after removing the trial smile.

It also involves comprehensively balancing your bite to ensure your mouth is stable and healthy.

If you choose to get veneers in Turkey, you’ll need to consider the costs of travel and accommodation, and the trip can last five to 2 weeks depending on the dentist’s availability.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are shells or sheaths that give your teeth a thin layer of coating and are attached to the surface of teeth to change or correct their shape, colour, location, length, or direction.

They help resolve various oral issues like discoloured teeth, worn teeth, crooked or chipped teeth, filled teeth, uneven teeth, or small and big teeth.

Types of Veneers Available at Bespoke Smile, Marlow

Bespoke Smile offers the following types of veneers:

Ultra-Thin Veneers

Ultra-thin veneers are porcelain, durable, and extremely thin.

They can give you great results with minimal tooth invasion that keeps most of your tooth tissue intact.

It’s a popular choice compared to other options like dental implants because it’s a minimally invasive treatment likely to last you a long time.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can correct chips, discolouration, and cracks.

Porcelain is the most effective and popular material for veneer manufacturing and is often the most expensive.

However, porcelain veneers are a worthwhile investment thanks to their teeth-resembling transparency, resistance to everyday staining from tea, coffee, wine, or cigarettes, and longer life span.

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers consist of tooth-coloured resin and cost less than porcelain.

They allow a quicker application process and can target various issues like chips, mishappen teeth, and discolouration.

They’re less durable than porcelain veneers, and the lifespan depends on aftercare.
