If you’ve been putting up with crooked, chipped, cracked, or discoloured teeth and you’ve decided it’s time to finally to do something about it, then you’ve no doubt found your way to veneers, and have been considering the wonders they could work for you and your smile. You’ve also probably come across the their cost too, and maybe found yourself wondering if it’s something you can actually afford.
The good news is you don’t have to wonder anymore, and you needn’t be put off by their hefty price tag. While the procedure can cost upward of £500 to £1,000 per tooth here in the UK—plus additional costs of consultations, medications, and post-operative aftercare—it doesn’t necessarily have to. What if we were to tell you that there’s an alternative to these high prices, and that millions of people from all over the world have already been taking advantage of it?
What we’re here to talk about today is cosmetic tourism, and more specifically cosmetic tourism in Turkey. With high prices for veneers like those above, more and more patients from all around the world have been looking outside their own borders for treatment, and time and time again people are choosing Turkey.
While this is all well and good, you may be starting to feel that this all sounds a bit too good to be true, or that there’s some kind of nasty catch waiting right around the corner. After all, it makes sense for there to be some kind of trade-off when it comes to the quality of treatment, patient care or medical standards when the overall cost is so much lower, right? Well, no, not at all actually. While there are several reasons why the cost of your veneers is so much lower in Turkey than in the UK, you’ll be pleased to know that none of it has anything to do with a low quality of treatment, patient care or medical standards.
For starters, the cost of labour alone is much lower in Turkey than it is in the UK. The same goes for the cost of medications too, which average at about 50% of their cost in the UK. As such, it’s much more viable for dental clinics in Turkey to run their businesses without being so profit driven, passing the savings down to the patient. In addition, thanks to Turkey’s cosmetic industry contributing such huge amounts of money each year to their economy, the Turkish government has been subsidising the industry to help encourage more and more travellers from all over the world to come for their cosmetic treatments. Add these to an already incredibly favourable exchange rate between the Lira and the Pound, and it’s no wonder prices for veneers Turkey are so much lower than in the UK or elsewhere.
It’s not all as simple as a matter of cost alone though. Turkey also boasts some of the world’s highest medical standards, which their Ministry of Health enforces thoroughly with frequent surprise on the spot visits to ensure all rules and regulations are being followed to the letter at all times, whether it’s relating to patient care, ensuring that all dentists and medical professionals are fully certified and licensed, or ensuring that all decontamination and sterilisation protocols are being adhered to when it comes to clinical environments, instruments, and other equipment.
Since becoming one of the world’s most popular destinations for all kinds of cosmetic procedures, increasing numbers of clinics have been opening their doors to customers, ready to make the most of the demand. To make sure the increasingly international patient base is as comfortable as possible with the care they’re receiving, more and more of Turkey’s clinics are seeking international accreditation, to prove that they adhere to only the highest of international standards.
And last but not least, when you decide to go to Turkey to get your veneers with an all-inclusive veneers Turkey treatment package, you’ll get to enjoy only the best possible hospitality throughout the duration of your stay.
