Whitening in Turkey

The Ultimate Guide to Whitening in Turkey

Get a dazzling smile while you’re on holiday with teeth whitening in Turkey . One of the easiest cosmetic procedures to produce noticeable results, the treatment will take only a few hours and you’ll save a little money compared to the prices at home.


Am I Suitable for Teeth Whitening?


While laser teeth whitening is a highly effective procedure, it is not suitable for everyone. For example, teeth whitening is only suitable or extrinsic stains (stains on the outside of the tooth) rather than intrinsic stains, like tetracyline staining, caused by exposure to this antibiotic while in the womb.


Don’t be fooled by the many do-it-yourself kits on the market. True teeth whitening can only be carried out at a dental clinic and is not recommended if you have other dental health problems, such as gum disease, as it may make the gums or teeth more sensitive.


What Teeth Whitening Treatments Are Available in Turkey?


  • Over-the-counter products, such as whitening toothpastes. However, they don’t have much of a whitening effect, even with regular use.


  • Take-home whitening kits from the dentist. These are reasonably effective and will lighten your teeth somewhat. You will need to have impressions taken of your teeth which are sent to the lab so the custom-made trays containing the lightening gel can be fitted over your teeth. Many people opt for this treatment as an adjunct to laser teeth whitening, to help keep their teeth whiter longer.


  • Laser teeth whitening at a dental office. Brands, such as the popular BriteSmile® and Zoom!® are available in Turkey, among many other reputable systems.


Is Teeth Whitening a Good Treatment for Dental Tourists?


Many dental patients typically have dental care abroad to save money on a procedure they may not be able to afford at home. While you won’t save masses with laser teeth whitening, it will cost less than having the work done at home.


Another reason you may want to get laser teeth whitening in Turkey while on holiday is because it is a quick procedure. You won’t take up too much of your holiday time, as there are few after-effects (although some people report sensitive teeth for a day or two after the treatment).


What’s Involved in the Laser Teeth Whitening Procedure at the Dentist?


You will only need one trip to the dentist, which generally takes about two hours. To see how much lighter your teeth are after the treatment, the dentist will hold a shade chart to your teeth to assess the colour before your procedure.


Your treatment begins with a thorough cleaning of your teeth to remove tartar and any obvious stains. The bleaching gel should only be applied to the teeth, so a rubber dam will be placed around your teeth to protect the gums and tongue. Protective goggles will be placed over your eyes to shield them from the bright light of the laser.


The bleaching gel is then applied and the laser beam directed at your teeth to activate the whitening agents in the gel. The gel is removed and the process may be carried out several more times, depending on the system your dentist uses. Some systems, for example, require just one application of gel, which is left on the teeth for 45 minutes.


Once all the gel is removed, the dentist cleans your teeth again to remove all the traces of the gel, and will hold the shade chart to your teeth to gauge how many shades different they are (up to 14). Even if you don’t max out, your teeth will be noticeably whiter.


What’s Involved Getting an At-Home Whitening Kit?


Two trips are required to the dentist. During your first visit, impressions are made and sent to the laboratory where trays are made to fit over your teeth.


At the second visit, you will pick up the trays and the bleaching gel. Your dentist will demonstrate how to use them. In brief, a little gel is squeezed along the length of both trays and you fit them over your teeth. Most people get a two-week supply and you apply the gel every night for two weeks, or until you are happy with the whitening effect. You can pick up more gel from your home town dentist.


Can I Trust the Quality of Teeth Whitening Treatments in Turkey?


Generally, yes. Dentists in Turkey are just as well-trained as dentists at home, adhering to world-recognized protocols on hygiene and safety . The instrumentation and materials used at our best dental clinics in Turkey are exactly the same as your dentist uses at home.
