Cosmetic dentistry: dental treatment in Turkey
What is cosmetic dentistry? It's a very popular dental treatment in Turkey which aims to solve any problem related to oral health and with the aesthetic harmony of the mouth. And what are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry? It manages to improve not only dental aesthetics, but also the functions of teeth and the precision of jaws; at the same time, it enhances the overall appearance of face. At Clinicana we carry out any kind of dental treatment.
Cosmetic dentistry is usually part of a larger cosmetic intervention in which aesthetic imbalances are corrected in the face to eliminate congenital defects or malformations, either on the face or in the area around the mouth. Turkey has very good facilities and some of the best doctors to perform these treatments; also, cosmetic dentistry prices are lower in Istanbul compared with those in the UK or USA.
In cosmetic dentistry, veneers refers to certain type of manufactured dental cover made of thin sheets of dental composites or low-density porcelain, which are placed over the outside of teeth to give them a more attractive appearance. Like natural teeth, they are whitish in colour and are very effective to hide teeth defects (breaks, deviations, dents, stains, etc.) or to change their size.
The length of a dental veneer ranges from 0.2 to 0.7 centimetres, and normally it's placed on upper front teeth, as this is the most visible area of the mouth. Although they can be made of dental composite, those of best quality are made of porcelain, which is not just a more resistant material, but it also offers a more natural and teeth-like look.
The cost of a dental treatment in Turkey is cheaper than in countries of Western Europe or in the USA. Cosmetic dentistry prices in UK are high and not included in NHS. The cosmetic dentistry cost will depend on factors such as the area to be treated, the materials to be used, and of course the clinic chosen to get the treatment.
For example, a cosmetic dentistry in London to get dental veneers may cost up to £1000 per tooth if we choose porcelain veneers; however, a veneer cost in Turkey with the same material and quality, can be up to 4 times cheaper in comparison.

For this type of intervention, patient's teeth are evaluated by examining the baseline; then, the restoration and treatment options are chosen: this decision is made taking into consideration the best adaptation to the facial shape, to the colour of the skin, and to other characteristics of the patient.
The results to be achieved are established once the measurements have been made, and right before starting the treatment. The information from the previous study is used to define the design of the patient's three-dimensional smile; that is, the patient will be able to see how his/her smile will change, and will be able to get an idea of how he/she will feel with it before starting the intervention, thus guaranteeing that the final shape fits patient's preferences.
Our team will take several measurements, including tooth colour and shape, to make dental veneers look natural and fit perfectly with original teeth. At Clinicana we provide our patients with all kinds of dental treatments and dental aesthetics, with surprising results in the shortest time.
Veneers can be applied in the following cases:
- Discoloured teeth: because of neglecting dental care, smoking, excessive drinking of tea and coffee, stains from tetracycline, excessive use of fluoride, or teeth fillings, teeth colour may change.
- Erosion of teeth: Over time, the enamel will erode and change in colour; this is often the result from drinking sodas, tea, coffee, smoking, or the use of certain medications.
- Teeth that are cracked or broken
- Teeth with irregular shape.
- Teeth not aligned or consistent with each other.
- Teeth that have spaces between them (veneers are used to close these spaces).
- First of all, initial measurements are made and sent to the laboratory to design a temporary coating.
- Preparations are made to remove part of teeth surface (approximately 0.5 mm), equivalent to the same amount of coating that will be fixed on them. Should the teeth overlap or become too separated, they will be readjusted until the correct final appearance is achieved.
- The measurements of the teeth are taken through photos and sent to a laboratory.
- After 7-10 days, the veneers will be ready for placement in patient's mouth, in a quick and easy process.
- Between the preparation and placement of the veneers, a temporary plastic coating designed by computer will be placed to protect teeth from external agents, temperature changes, etc.
Many people ask us this question. The fact is that porcelain veneers are safe and offer multiple advantages, like the following:
Porcelain veneers give teeth a very natural look by replicating the way natural teeth reflect light, almost in the same way.
If they have been well manufactured and patient follows doctor's indications, porcelain veneers can last from 10 to 15 years.
Porcelain colour is very similar to that of natural teeth. Remember that in most cases it is not necessary to apply the veneers to all teeth, unless this is requested by the patient.
By using porcelain veneers, and after a very short intervention, the patient will notice an immediate improvement in his/her smile.
If you compare this method with others, such as dental crowns, veneers do not require parts of the teeth to be cut, making it a less harmful method. Also, porcelain does not cause problems with gums tissue.
Veneers get firmly attached to teeth, and in a short time you will be able to use your teeth as usual.
Porcelain resists pigmentation/staining caused by coffee, tea, smoking, or soft drinks. Patient will feel as having new teeth, even after several years, since the colour of dental veneers will remain unchanged.
Once this or any other dental treatment has been completed, minimal care is required. You just need to keep your mouth and teeth clean with a good brushing and regular flossing. Also avoid biting nails, ice, pens, or any other hard objects that can damage your teeth.
