Getting Dental Veneers Abroad: UK, Turkey and Croatia
Firstly, let’s talk about what veneers are, advantages, and the whole procedure itself. And then, we will discuss the costs of veneer in the UK, Croatia and Turkey. The normal appearance of teeth can be restored with dental veneers. Veneers are lightweight, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth. Ceramic (porcelain) or plastic resin fabrics are often used. Then, using a specially formulated dental adhesive cement, they are bonded to the teeth.
In recent years, veneers have become increasingly common. Veneers were once only reserved for actors, but due to low-cost overseas dental veneers, they are now more widely available. You can get your cheap dental veneers abroad such as in the country of Turkey. We will discuss why you should get your teeth done in Turkey.
What about the veneers treatment duration?
It takes 10-20 minutes to remove enamel.
If completed locally, construction could take 2-4 weeks. Veneers abroad are installed in less than a week.
It takes about 1-2 hours to bond a porcelain veneer to a tooth; it takes about 40 minutes to 1.5 hours to bond composite veneers to a tooth.
Return to the dentist for a check-up to ensure the veneer has bonded correctly if it was completed locally; if it was done overseas, the patient would have multiple fittings and a final check-up before returning home. So, the treatment time will last less.
Dental Tourism, Veneers Abroad: How Much Do They Cost?
Veneers have grown in prominence considerably in recent years. Unfortunately, there is no straightforward answer to the questions, “How much do veneers cost abroad, What is the price of veneers in the UK, How much for getting teeth done in Turkey, What does veneers cost in Croatia?”
Veneer prices can vary depending on the following factors:
How many veneers you need,
The kind of material you choose,
Regardless on whether you want to have veneers installed in the UK or overseas,
Choosing a certain clinic and dentist,
Any other additional procedures before getting veneers abroad.
We will give an example of the prices for eight porcelain veneer packages in Croatia, Turkey and the United Kingdom.
United Kingdom €6,500
You can see that the most expensive veneer price is in the UK while the lowest one is Turkey. One of the main reasons why Turkey provides cheap porcelain veneers is the cost of living is very low compared to other countries. You can have dinner in a restaurant by the sea and the average cost will be 10€. (Of course, it depends on where you are and what you are eating.) Or you can get a beer for only 1.5€. The grocery market, bazaar and store prices will also be lower because the value of Turkish Lira is low compared to the UK.
Since the United Kingdom is one of the most expensive places to visit or live, the cost of living will be higher. So, the laboratory and medical fees will also be higher. If you are living in the UK and thinking about a dental holiday abroad, Turkey would be a good choice. Turkey is one of the most popular destinations for health tourism and it was regarded as the sixth most beautiful destination for tourism in the world. If you are from the UK and want to get veneers in England, you need to pay thousands of money to a single procedure. So, why not spend your time in a new country and get your veneers in Turkey at the same time?
Your veneers holiday in Turkey will include so many advantages thanks to all inclusive veneers packages. Our prices include everything you may need such as accommodation, hotel privileges, VIP transportation from airport to hotel and clinic, free initial consultation, and all medical fees.
What Happens During a Veneer Procedure Abroad?
Veneer treatment procedure entails a number of phases. The process of getting veneers installed at your local dentist can take a few weeks, depending on the facilities available at your dental clinic. Also, you will have to wait for weeks, months to get an appointment at a local dentist.
1. Consultation with a dentist
To begin, you must send x-rays of your teeth to your dentist so that he or she can determine whether or not your teeth are appropriate for treatment. Once you come to the country, you’ll meet with your dentist for the first time. Your dentist will inspect your teeth for injury or deterioration, as well as address the translucency, light, and color of your veneers.
2. Teeth Cleaning and Preparation
The outer coating of enamel on the teeth being handled is removed using precision equipment. This is referred to as ‘shaving down,’ and it’s important to note that your dentist can just shave down enough enamel to ensure that your veneers don’t appear bulky once they are in place.
3. Making the Mould
Following the preparation of the teeth, the dentist will create a mould from which the veneers will be custom-made to match your teeth. After that, the mold will be sent to a dental laboratory, where it will be used to create identical replicas of the missing teeth.
If you have veneers installed locally, the process will take 2-4 weeks. Treatment in another country can be done in 5-7 days. However, the length of time you’ll need to spend overseas will depend on whether you can get your veneers made at a local dental clinic or whether you’ll have to go to an external partner dental lab.
As you wait for your permanent veneers, you’ll be given temporary ones to wear while they are being made.
4. Putting the Veneer Into Place
The bonding process follows the completion of the permanent veneers. To provide a good attachment site for the cement and the veneer, the teeth are polished and then engraved.
After that, the veneer is added and the dental plaster is applied to the teeth. A special concentrated light may be used by the dentist to closely bind the veneer to the tooth. It just takes a few minutes to complete this operation. Finally, any remaining powder can be scraped out, leaving the veneer in place and giving the teeth a more natural look.
Is it Better to Get Veneers at Home than Abroad?
Veneers from other countries such as Turkey and Croatia are becoming increasingly popular. There are some significant causes for this new increase in popularity.
Patients come from all over the world to get veneers in Turkey installed because:
Veneers in Turkey and Croatia are 50-70 percent less expensive than they are in the UK.
Many of the world’s most well-known and professional dentists are based in other countries.
Dental hospitals in other countries have cutting-edge technology.
The quality of treatment provided abroad is comparable to — and also exceeds — that provided at home.
Despite the growing popularity of getting veneers abroad, patients have a few common concerns before scheduling their appointment.
How long will I have to be away from home if I get teeth done abroad?
Dental hospitals in other countries are used to caring for overseas patients and have reliable itineraries so you don’t have to spend too much time away from home. The itinerary below is an example; however, it can differ depending on individual circumstances.
Day 1: Your holiday begins with your arrival at the airport and transition to your hotel.
Day 2: Consultation with the dentist and appointment preparation.
Day 3-4: Veneers are tested, fitted, and installed.
Day 5: Veneers are applied and a final check-up is performed.
Day 6: Return to the airport for your flight.
Will I need to return to my dentist for further treatment in the future?
Veneers are not deemed permanent and they will need to be replaced within 5-15 years, despite the fact that they are a long-lasting dental procedure. While the quality of the veneers can be primarily determined by the type of material used, it’s also important to ensure that you take careful care of them, which includes items like frequent dental appointments and a strong brushing routine. This will mean that you don’t have to return for further work as often in the future.
