Overview

-        What is ''Hollywood Smile Makeover''?

 

A smile makeover is a general term to describe the dental treatments to recreate your smile line however it is usually used for cosmetic treatments like dental crowns, dental veneers, etc.

 

A smile makeover is not a single treatment. In fact, there is a number of treatment options available to restore smiles. Hollywood smile makeover is the transformation of the whole smile line to fix discolouration, alignment, proportional issues, missing teeth, misshapen gums or gummy smile, severely damaged teeth, gaps, or other spacing issues.

 -       Why the prices of dental treatments in Turkey are lower compared to my country?

 

Costs of dental treatments in Turkey are lower, mainly because operating a dental clinic in Turkey costs much lower compared to other parts of Europe and we pass down this advantage to our patients and offer the same high-quality dental products with much affordable cost.

 

-       Are the treatments painful?

 

No! Our dentist will provide the numbing injections at the start of your treatment and you will not feel any pain or sensitivity during your dental treatments, however, after the appointments, some patients might feel pain or sensitivity depending on the treatment they get.

 

For example, it is totally normal to feel pain after the application of the screw part of the dental implant(s) since there is an intervention into the jaw bone however our dentist will prescribe necessary medications and painkillers to ease your pain and sensitivity.

 

In the case of cosmetic treatments like dental veneers or dental crowns, there would not be any pain however having sensitivity for a while is totally normal. Some patients do not feel any sensitivity however some might have up to 2 months, depending on the case.

  

-       Do I have to wear braces before getting dental veneers?

 

There are two ways to realign teeth; 1. Orthodontic treatments like braces, retainers, Invisalign, etc., 2. Cosmetical treatments like dental veneers. Even though they are offered for the same purpose, these treatments are not substitutes for each other. Please do not hesitate to contact us to get further information regarding your treatment options. Our expert orthodontists and prosthodontists will offer you a personalised treatment plan based on your needs and expectations.

 

-       Which treatment is better for me? Laminate veneers or dental crowns?

Laminate veneers and dental crowns are similar since they both are offered to improve the appearance of the teeth, however, they are recommended for different conditions. Teeth need to be shaved down 0,5mm for the application of laminate veneers and since they are translucent and only cover the visible surface of teeth, reshaping is limited, therefore, we do not recommend laminate veneers if you have severe discolouration, misalignments, bite issues or have large gaps between your teeth etc.

 

For the application of dental crowns (also known as full veneers), teeth need to be shaved down around 1-1,5 mm in order to apply dental crowns (also known as full veneers) and since they cover teeth 360 degrees, we are able to close the gaps between teeth, reshape/realign teeth and cover the discolouration successfully.

 

Laminate veneers last for 10-15 years and they have a higher risk of chip or fall off compared to dental crowns. That is why you should avoid chewing tough substances with dental veneers. In addition, if you have bruxism (teeth grinding), we do not recommend dental veneers because you may break or chip them while you are asleep.

 

Dental crowns last for 15-20 years and they are less likely to chip or fall off unless you try to open bottle caps or crack nuts.


We offer 5 years of guarantee for our dental veneers. You can find our guarantee terms and conditions on our website. Please check the link below for further information;

-       Should I replace my old amalgam fillings with white composite fillings?

 

Many people want to replace their old metal fillings with white ones because of cosmetical concerns, however, if you do not have any metal allergy or discomforts like pain or sensitivity, we do not recommend replacing old huge amalgam fillings with white composite fillings since they may cause future pain or sensitivity.

 

-       Is root canal treatment necessary for the application of dental veneers?


No! Application of dental veneers is mainly for cosmetical concerns. There is a common misbelief that root canal treatment is requisite for the application of dental veneers or full veneers however this is not true. However, in some cases like extreme misalignment, we may need to shave down teeth more than usual in order to straighten the smile line, which may cause the nerves to expose, therefore, the dentist may recommend root canal treatment(s) for these teeth to avoid future pain/sensitivity. Our expert dentists will inform you before proceeding if there is any need for root canal treatments.

-       Is it possible to fix bite problems with dental crowns?

 

It depends on the case. Since it is not possible to move the roots of teeth or change jaw structure with cosmetic treatments like dental crowns, their application would not fix bite issues entirely, but “alleviate” the bite for a more aesthetical end result. If you would like to fix your malocclusion entirely, you may consider orthodontic treatments like braces or orthognathic surgery (jaw surgery) depending on your case. You can send us your dental photographs, so our patient coordinators would consult with our dental team regarding your treatment options and you can discuss accordingly.
