Why Should You Get Veneers in Turkey?

Getting veneers in the U.S or U.K is expensive; therefore, there is a need to get quality treatment at an affordable price. Turkey has highly qualified medical professionals, making it a choice destination for plastic and cosmetic surgery. Also, the costs of veneers in Turkey are significantly lower.

Because there are several dental clinics in Turkey, the cost of getting dental veneers installed varies. Fortunately, Dentakay is a luxurious dental clinic hosting Europe’s finest dentist. The clinic’s dental services are excellent, sophisticated, and affordable.

Who Qualifies for Dental Veneers?

Although dental veneers are suitable for covering different tooth imperfections, not everyone qualifies for the treatment—people with significant teeth stains that do not respond to teeth whitening qualify for veneers. In addition, you need to have enough enamel to qualify for veneers. Because dentists remove part of the tooth enamel to create room for the veneers, having sufficient enamel is crucial in achieving a solid bond.

Other people who qualify for veneers are those who do not clench or grind their teeth – teeth clenching can damage or chip the veneers. In addition, if you have numerous cosmetic dental flaws like chipped teeth, stained teeth, and mildly crooked teeth, dental veneers are ideal for you. Veneers are a one size fits all solution instead of going through multiple procedures to correct these flaws.
