One of the UK’s top cosmetic dentists is warning people against travelling abroad in the hope of a cheap fix after seeing a huge rise in ‘Turkey teeth.’
Dr Ken Harris, is urging people to think twice before agreeing to bargain price veneers, which can cause a huge amount of damage to teeth.
“We have seen a number of people who have gone to Turkey and then decided to have their teeth done, or booked a travel package which includes some kind of cosmetic treatment,” said Dr Harris.
“The results in some cases have been horrendous. The teeth are ground down to virtually nothing and then in some cases it is crowns, not veneers, which are being fitted and then the patient comes home and realises how many problems they now have.”
Dr Harris is also concerned at the “assembly line” approach of some clinics, where people are literally in and out in a few hours.
“To get this kind of treatment done takes time if it is done right,” he said. “It’s impossible for veneers to be fitted in a few hours and this is why people find they need a huge amount of work done to have them corrected, although in some cases their teeth are completely ruined.”
He advises anyone thinking about travelling for this kind of treatment to get proper advice and do their research before making the decision.
“While it may seem a very good deal, in the long run it can set people up for problems that they might never recover from,” said Dr Harris.
Dr Harris (BDS, MFGDP, FFGDP RCS (Eng), MSc Restorative and Aesthetic dentistry) one of only two Fellows of the British Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry (BACD) and a regular lecturer to dentists around the globe.
He is recognised as one of the leaders in the field of cosmetic dentistry, often being brought in by other practices to handle complex cases.
The strong team at Riveredge includes Dr Richard Coates BDS (UNcle) Pg Dip CID, who chairs The North East Private Dentists group, is a long standing member of The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and holds a diploma in implantology from Newcastle University.
For 2020 we would like to introduce some of our results we are proud to show you of what we are able to achieve with close patient participation as a dental team.
The challenge with this case is to hide dead discoloured teeth so that we can use full ceramic natural looking crowns with a perfect colour match, this way we do not need to over treat a patient to deliver confidence, usually we find patients do not want to have all their teeth compromised by crowning and veneering everything, our solution here was to change the metal bonded crowns to match what is nice in the mouth with an emphasis on being natural.
This patient had gone to a dentist and was sold many white fillings with no consideration for his bite leading to pain. After many hours and assessment we finally got there, this patient really wanted his look to be strong in his eyeteeth but still all look new and healthy after many months we have achieved this and this patient was frustrated due to his final comfort as he was eating anything! In addition, smiling at everything the first photo was 10 years before.
This patient was concerned about having an implant on her right upper lateral tooth. All her teeth were chipping and breaking, we found her bite was out and therefore caused the tooth wear. After TMJ therapy and healing, we were able to rectify what has been wrong with her bite. We only added white fillings onto the lower teeth and re-crowned the upper teeth with a bridge for the right hand side to make her teeth look natural and real again, this patient no longer has any of her facial pain and is so happy.
‘Just completed my treatment!
Love my new smile!!! AMAZING!
Thank you all – especially TJ & Vasile’
This patient was not sure how she wanted her teeth to look, she did not want full crowns and did not want it to look too white, but natural. Letting all the light through to all her natural colour, we decided to make very thin shells of glass and not trim anything underneath so we had to make them slightly bigger, this is what she wanted, and they made her smile look very natural and healthy.
This patient was sure her teeth were fine; she had attended all her NHS appointments over the years religiously. On arriving at our practice after a full biological and functional assessment we call a Dental MOT, at close inspection the damage could be reversed but it needed to be comprehensive. Two implants, infection removal and all teeth being restored to the right bite, we managed to save them. This patient is now dentally sound and over the moon, we used the latest in natural ceramics and made her teeth look 20 years younger.
“Few people can say that a visit to a new dental practice changes their life, but in my case this is true. I first visited the Implant and Ceramic Dental Studios in Miserden, Gloucestershire, for a dental check-up. On that day I was in extreme pain and suffering from severe migraine. It was not an option to reschedule my appointment as I had migraines almost every day and my life is completely blighted by them. Apart from terrible headaches, I also suffered with toothache, earache and intense jaw pain during an attack. To cut a long story short, I have been treated by this practice over two years; there have been several stages to my treatment which included adapting a tanner appliance to work with my particular dental peculiarities in order to create the correct bite.
Each stage has been carefully monitored to ensure that I do not suffer severe migraine. My treatment is still continuing, but Im delighted to say that my migraines are greatly reduced in number and severity and Ive been able to resume work and painting again. I would have no hesitation in recommending friends who have a migraine as I know it is extremely difficult to find dental professionals with their knowledge and dedication to their profession and patience.
They are situated in a beautiful old estate barn and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming with a knowledgeable and extremely conscientious professional team. The practice has obviously invested heavily in technical equipment to assist with the diagnostic procedures and to ensure that the high-class quality of their work is maintained.
Thank you again.”
