Five Types of Cosmetic Dental Treatments in Turkey​

Dentistry has gone beyond simple check-ups, fillings and teeth extractions. Today, it offers people the opportunity to enhance their smile, correct misalignments and other flaws in the teeth and jaw, fill gaps left by missing teeth and generally improve oral health and wellbeing. You can have several types of cosmetic dental treatments in Turkey, ranging from dental implants and crowns to teeth whitening and smile design. These have the advantages of lower prices, as well as the chance to visit a truly beautiful part of the world.

It is wise to do plenty of research before choosing which dental clinic in Turkey to visit for your cosmetic dental treatment. You must check that the clinic actually offers your preferred treatment, and that the surgeons and medical team are fully qualified and competent. Check out third-party reviews and do your own due diligence to ensure a positive experience.

Here are some of the cosmetic dental treatments that you can undergo at dental clinics in Turkey.

Dental implants

Dental implants are used to support one or more false teeth that are inserted into gaps in the mouth. They are fitted into the jaw with a titanium screw. The screw goes deep into the jawbone to support a permanent replacement for a missing or damaged tooth. The implant is created for each individual person, with the false tooth colour, shape and size customised to look as natural as possible. Provided that you care for dental implants properly, they can last for many years. The feasibility of having dental implants fitted will depend on the state of your jaw bone. You may need a bone graft first to help keep the implant in place.

Dental crowns

Dental crowns fit over a damaged or unsightly tooth. They are artificially created to look as natural as possible and ensure a snug, permanent fit. They can also be known as caps. Dental crowns are also used to protect teeth that may have been weakened through impact, root canal work or fillings that have become unstable over time. They can also help hold a denture or bridge in place. Crowns are often made out of porcelain applied in layers over a metal base. However, other options can include100% porcelain, ceramic or glass.

Smile design / Hollywood smile

This is the ‘final word’ in cosmetic dentistry, where results can be stunning and you retain full control. Using shade guides and model impression technology, the dentist works with you to design the perfect smile for your mouth shape and size, your hair and skin colouring and more. Precise measurements are taken to ensure a safe, comfortable and aesthetically perfect result. The process takes place over a number of appointments, with a selection of processes used, including teeth whitening, veneers and final checks and monitoring. Patients who have significant issues with their teeth, such as untreated decay, cavities or cracks, will need to have these fully addressed before moving on to the cosmetic dental work.

Composite laminate

This clever cosmetic dentistry technique can dramatically improve the look of your teeth and smile. Wafer-thin, tooth-coloured laminates are bonded to the surface of the teeth to enhance colour, shape and size. They can also hide unsightly gaps or minor flaws. More serious misalignments, such as crooked teeth or severe underbites and overbites, are better corrected using orthodontic procedures. The composite laminate process is quick and easy and you will most likely not even need anaesthetic. Results can last for a long time afterwards, provided you take good care of the laminates and practise good overall oral hygiene.

Teeth whitening

It is amazing how much our smiles are affected by the whiteness of our teeth. Teeth whitening techniques can lighten enamel by several shades and boost confidence at the same time. The procedure can get rid of stains caused by dark coloured food and drink and tobacco. The procedure involves having bespoke trays made to fit the shape of the teeth in a similar way to a mouthguard. These trays are then filled with a whitening solution and worn for the prescribed time. Treatment can take up to four weeks. It will involve a number of dental clinic appointments to take measurements, fit the trays and check on progress to ensure perfect results.
