The most populated city in Turkey, Istanbul is also the capital of this beautiful country whose culture embraces both Asian and European traditions comfortably. Full of historical sites, and ancient monuments. Istanbul has fascinated travelers and welcomed them since Constantine first visualized this successful city in the 4th century.
Today, it is still one of the most innovative countries in the world, and its economy is bringing prosperity to Turkey as one of the most go-to places for healthcare in the world with its state-of-the-art technology and internationally accredited clinics.
Strict regulations and excellent medical systems are attracting some of the best surgical doctors in the world to Istanbul, including those practicing cosmetic surgical and dental procedures. It offers the best-qualified doctors’ great conditions and world-class hospitals and clinics such as Dentakay where they can practice up-to-date techniques.
By affiliating their Istanbul clinics with other excellent hospitals and clinics around the world, including in the U.K., U.S.A., and Europe, clinics and hospitals, Istanbul surgeons can prepare dental packages for patients from those countries and this sort of partnership includes dental veneer costs and treatment packages.
Wondering what the Dental Veneers Cost in Istanbul?
You would be pleased to know it is estimated to be up to 70% cheaper than in your home country if you live in the U.K. or the U.S.A. Therefore, no need to panic when wondering about the dental veneer cost in Istanbul. Health tourists from both of these countries can obtain a visa on arrival in Turkey as long as their passports are valid for the duration of their stay, and an additional 60 days following.
In Istanbul, the dental veneer cost will depend on the type of dental veneers, your dentist, and what you decide is best for you. Most Istanbul dental specialists will offer both composite and porcelain veneers as well as other dental treatments. Composite-based ones can be fitted in a day, but porcelain ones will take a few days longer since they have to be specially made for you in a laboratory.
The benefits of having dental veneers include:
- Transforming your smile
- Natural-looking inconspicuous dentistry
- Can last from 7 to 15 years
- No recovery needed
The same treatment you receive in Istanbul will cost you far more in the U.S.A or U.K. where dental veneers cost between $925 and $2,000 per tooth for high-quality porcelain veneers, and between $400 and $2,000 per tooth for resin-based composite veneers, according to the American Dental Association.
Whereas, in Istanbul, dental veneers’ costs range in the $60 to $500 range per tooth, depending upon your choice of material used. This is even cheaper than Turkey’s neighboring countries for dental packages that include eight porcelain veneers which are quoted, for example, as:
- Croatia $2,385
- Hungary $2,200
- Istanbul $2,000
Because of their huge healthcare workforce, and a lower cost of living, Istanbul clinics can provide high-quality dental veneer treatment that is affordable.
What is involved in a Dental Veneer Treatment?
If you are a suitable candidate, the preparation undertaken will depend largely on the condition of your teeth and the type of veneers that you opt for. The two most popular choices are:
These are custom-made in a laboratory for your unique requirements. You will need at least two sessions of treatment with your dentist. In the first session, your teeth will be prepared for placement by removing enamel and a mold will be made. During the second session, your porcelain veneers will be fitted.
The resin-based do not require the same amount of preparation although you must still have good oral care to have them fitted. The dentist can make the resin-based on the same day of your visit, so one session with the dentist may be all that you require.
Enamel removal preparation can make your teeth more sensitive for about a week after so very hot, cold, or sticky foods and drinks are best avoided then, but otherwise, you can return to your everyday activities and enjoy your holiday in Istanbul.
Is There an Alternative to Veneers in Istanbul?
If you are not a suitable candidate, there are two main alternatives to them if your teeth are severely crooked, perhaps, or you have a malocclusion. These are:
The dentist will create these for you. Unlike veneers, these are placed all around your own teeth.
For patients with insufficient enamel, bonding treatment with composites may be recommended. Of course, you may have some additional costs added to your dental veneers cost in Istanbul, for extra treatments that you may consider necessary. For example, once your veneers are added to, say, eight of your top teeth, you can have your other teeth whitening to complete your new, fresh look.
Many clinics in Istanbul include this in their packages. Especially within their all-inclusive packages, which are also the most convenient way to travel to Istanbul because airport pick-ups and transfers, as well as your accommodation, are taken care of for you. Always check with your clinic about exactly what is included in your own package.
There are over 39 districts in Istanbul and more than 30 veneered dental clinics so in order to help you decide where or which clinic to go to, talk to your own dental clinic first, and search online for medical travel checking websites. Finding the best package may take time but will save you time and money in the long run.
Combining your dental treatment with a relaxing holiday in Istanbul will enhance the whole experience of achieving the amazing smile you are aiming for. Excellent restaurants, wine houses, and music festivals can be discovered amongst the city’s tourist sites, and you will see plenty of things to make you smile. Your veneer’s dental cost with an all-inclusive package in Istanbul will make both your holiday and your treatment so much more affordable, but also far easier and convenient.
