WE all know someone who has flown abroad to get their teeth ready with dreams of their big transformation.

But while it might save a few pounds in the long run, what is the real cost of dental tourism? And could that dream quickly turn into a nightmare?

Now a dental expert has told Fabulous the ins and outs of “turkey teeth” — plus the telltale signs that you’ve gotten your teeth cheaply made.

dr Aneka Khaira, a cosmetic dentist and founder of Vogue Dental, gives us the lowdown.

regulations

The practice of dentistry is regulated here, so anything undertaken must conform to standards of conduct and ethics set by the governing body (General Dental Council) to protect the patient.

These stricter regulations do not apply to dentists abroad, resulting in higher risks.

There have been reports of patients becoming seriously ill or, sadly, even dying after treatment, which greatly worries the standard of dentistry and medicine practiced abroad.

There is an enormous biological risk of potentially losing your teeth as a result of heavy preparations.

This can start with a root canal (which is done quickly and has a high chance of failure). Once that fails and the crown (which is incorrectly advertised as veneers) you may need to get an implant.

Costs

It may be cheaper to have dental treatment in Turkey, but the cost is at the expense of your teeth and oral health.

Consequences are the risk of losing teeth and higher prices for remedies in the UK. While you might pay less in the beginning, you could end up paying a lot more in the long run.

lack of aesthetic details

A definite sign of cheap teeth is the lack of aesthetic details. High-quality dentistry is an art – high-quality veneers look natural.

Most of my clients want smile makers to look like beautiful teeth that they can pass off as their own, rather than gleaming white, one-dimensional teeth that look fake.

Smile makeovers in Turkey are done so quickly because they don’t use highly skilled technicians, instead using machine made veneers that lack detail.

Veneers made here in the UK are carefully hand finished by skilled laboratory technicians. This is a very complicated process and takes time, so my average turnaround time for veneers is 3 weeks from provisional to final fitting.

However, the total time from the consultation to the final examination can take up to 6 weeks.

More damage

As a result of cheap dental work, the bite can be uneven, which can lead to more problems like TMD, migraines, and more tooth fractures.

You may end up in more pain. This is often due to excessive preparation (exposing delicate dentin/nerves) or failure to place provisional crowns on the teeth.
