Dental Centre Turkey was established in 2005, that’s over 11 years of experience and 11 years of offering a legitimate guarantee. There are many cowboy clinics in the industry both at home and abroad that have been in business for 5 minutes and make huge claims which are nothing more than invented poppycock! Over the years we have obtained hundreds of real patient video testimonials as well as many written reviews on social media and hundreds of patient before and after examples. It takes time and effort to generate such statistics, for example: we only ask 2% of our patients for a video testimonial. We have done so to provide each new potential patient with transparent information so you can make an informed decision about the right clinic to provide your treatment. In recent years, we have been trusted to recreate the smiles of some well-known TV personalities which is a great addition to our expanding portfolio. Over 30% of the patients that visit us today are from a referral from a previous patient which is a statistic we are very proud of and strive to maintain.
In relation to timescales, In relation to timescales, it is usually the case that patients travel for 7 days to allow 5 days for the treatment itself discounting the flight arrival and departure days. During the 5 day period it is expected that you will have 3 dental appointments to complete your Crowns/ Full Veneers. In the case that you are planning CEREC® or e.max® Crowns/ Full Veneers using Cad Cam Technology we can complete your treatment in less time. In these cases, we recommend the travel time based on the number of Crowns/ Full Veneers required. In all our quotations, we will confirm the recommended travel time.
If you have a missing tooth or several teeth missing along the same row and you have a tooth on each side of the gap we can create a Dental Bridge using a unit of Dental Crowns/ Full Veneers. The Bridge is fixed in place to the teeth on each side of the gap so it is a long-term solution that is easy to maintain with daily brushing. The gap will be closed and the teeth will appear as individual teeth. If you would like to see examples, please get in touch and we can send you plenty of before and after examples.
In short, No! Teeth Whitening products do not work on any form of Cosmetic Dentistry and any websites selling whitening products that tell you they do are telling porky pies. It will take many years for your Crowns/ Full Veneers to discolour. Smoking is the main cause of discolouration however it will still take many years for the shade to darken if you maintain good oral hygiene.
We have over 30 tooth colours available as per the vita colour shade chart which is a universal tooth shading system. The whitest shade available is Hollywood White also known as BL1 (the whitest shade available in the world). We have all shade available ranging from Hollywood white to natural white to yellow and even brown. Hollywood White and Natural White are the most popular choices in the case of a Smile Makeover or a Dental Facelift. If you are planning Cosmetic Dentistry for a single tooth or only a few teeth we will match the colour of your new Crowns/ Full Veneers to the colour of your surrounding teeth. If you would like an overall brighter, whiter smile we can also apply Professional Teeth Whitening with laser to your surrounding teeth before your colour selection. Some of our patients like the fake look similar to Katie Price or Simon Cowell whilst other patients prefer a natural finish. In all cases, all options are discussed in detail during your consultation and the end decision is yours as to which colour you prefer. Eye, skin and hair colour should all be considered when choosing the most appropriate shade depending on the end result you would like to achieve. If we need to match a single Crown/ Full Veneer or a few Crowns/ Full Veneers to your surrounding teeth our Dental Technicians can also apply detailed tooth shading or shade layering to the interior or exterior porcelain ensuring the colour is ever so slightly graduated down the tooth with a slightly darker colour along the gum line, similar to that of a natural tooth. Examples of various tooth colours can also be provided upon request.
In the case of Dental Crowns/Full Veneers the guarantee is for a term of 5 years from the completion of the dental treatment however in reality they should last 15-20 years if good oral hygiene and health is maintained. We have had patients in the clinic to replace old Crowns/ Full Veneers that were placed over 35 years ago!
Dental Centre Turkey prides itself on a transparent guarantee showing you all the terms and conditions, written in a language that is easy to understand (no mumbo jumbo included). Our extensive guarantee is one of the best you can find from a medical tourism provider and probably the best you will find from a Turkish dental clinic. Our team of Dentists, Surgeons and Technicians ensure that your treatment is carried out to the highest possible standard. Not only do we offer one of the longest guarantee periods, in the event of any issue Dental Centre Turkey are the only company who will offer to pay for your return flights up to the value of €150*. In case of a failure of the laboratory works should you return to Turkey our clinics will cover all necessary dental and laboratory costs to rectify the problem. Dental Crowns/ Full Veneers are guaranteed against breakages, chipping or cement failure for a period of 5 years. Should you require minor repairs such as a white composite restoration or re-cementing of your Dental Crowns, Dental Centre Turkey will make a maximum single contribution of €100 towards you having the issue resolved in your home country
Many patients planning Cosmetic Dentistry consider travelling abroad for their Dental Crowns/ Full Veneers due to the cost savings but the skills and expertise also should not be ignored. All of our Dental Crowns/ Full Veneers are fabricated in an A Grade laboratory or in house by our skilled Dental Technicians. Your local Dentist may have experience of Cosmetic Dentistry but in most cases this experience is limited and only a few Crowns/ Full Veneers are placed each week. We manufacture and place approximately 450 Crowns/ Full Veneers each week and have made a huge investment in the acquisition of specialised 3D cad cam technology. This ensures you are in full control of your desired end result in terms of both tooth shape and smile design. Affording treatment in a clinic with this level of skills and technology locally is outside of the reach of most pockets. Our patients choose us for their Cosmetic Dentistry as we have a proven track record of providing high quality dentistry with optimum results for over 11 years.
Unlike many clinics, we do not charge for the removal of existing Crowns/ Full Veneers and the process is very simple, we remove the Crown, clean the natural tooth and create a new Crown/ Full Veneer.
Dental Crowns/ Full Veneers is a cosmetic dental treatment and not a surgical procedure. As such is not considered to be too invasive. In all cases your treatment is effected with local anaesthetic which numbs the area so that you will not feel the treatment.
On your initial appointment, you will undergo a full consultation in the clinic itself and we will take a Panoramic X-Ray to check the condition of the teeth under your gum line. Following your consultation, we will then prepare your teeth before taking your dental impressions. Temporary teeth will be provided before you leave the clinic so you can continue with daily life until you return a few days later for a trial fitting. At your next appointment, we will make a trial fitting of the Dental Crown/ Full Veneer and check if adjustments need to be made before the teeth are returned to the laboratory for the porcelain to be applied or final preparations to be made. On your final appointment, the new Crowns/ Full Veneers will be cemented into place. If you or the Cosmetic Dentist feels that further adjustments need to be made this can be done within 24 hours.
