Teeth whitening in Turkey, especially in Istanbul, is becoming very popular nowadays. In fact, it is one of the most demanded procedures of cosmetic dentistry in Turkey, because it can greatly improve how your teeth look. Teeth naturally darken with age, and their appearance can be affected by the accumulation of surface stains acquired from the use of tobacco products and the consumption of certain foods or drinks.
However, tooth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. If applied properly, it doesn’t damage your teeth and you will get a much cleaner, white and eye-catching smile; and most importantly, the original dental integrity is completely preserved.
But, how much is teeth whitening in Turkey? Price of teeth whitening in Turkey is considerably lower compared to other countries, and the country has great professionals in this field.

Types of tooth bleaching
Tooth whiteness provided by brushing teeth twice a day, and cleaning done by regular dentist checks, is sufficient for some people. But, of course everyone wants to have a whiter and more striking smile. No matter how well you look at your teeth: serious colour changes will occur over the years.
There can be many reasons for discoloration. Thinning of the enamel depending on age, consumption of coffee or tea, smoking, high doses of fluoride, tetracycline group antibiotics, and discolorations caused by root canal treatments, are the most common reasons.
There are two main types of teeth bleaching: home teeth whitening, and in-office whitening. In home whitening, a specific dental tray is moulded based on patient’s measurements, so that he/she can use this tray and the bleaching material at home as instructed by the dentist.
Home teeth vs in-office whitening: which one is the best?
Home bleaching has the following advantages over other types of treatment:
- You spend very little time at the dentist.
- It is usually much more financially affordable.
- You are able to bleach your teeth at your own convenience.
By using in-office whitening, soft tissue isolations are used at clinical conditions to bleach teeth. Unlike home-use systems that incorporate low-dose bleaching agents, in-office bleaching takes place under carefully monitored conditions which allow for a safe, controlled, pain-free use of a relatively high concentration of bleaching gel, with yielding results that are visible immediately.
A combination of both methods is used in some patients to get better and more permanent outcomes. Besides for bleaching procedure, dental structure and personal habits play significant role in bleaching degree, and also in the duration of the results.
What is the best place in turkey for teeth whitening?
Whitening should be done only under a dentist’s supervision. It might not be suitable for every person. Bleaching is not recommended in children under the age of 15, in pregnant or lactating women, in individuals with sensitive teeth and gums, receding gums and/or defective restorations, and in individuals with gum disease or teeth with worn enamel.
Therefore, before every whitening procedure it is absolutely necessary to go through the control of your aesthetic dentist and determine whether you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.
