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.
6 Front Crowns, 4 Back Veneers, concentrating on tooth Preservation, Healing the Jaw Joint
This patient had her teeth crowned twice in the last decade with a different practice, she was not happy. The crowns were dense and bulky. She had a functional assessment and using diagnostics and temporaries she could take part in the design of her teeth.
The patients gum line was adjusted, she had all ceramic crowns fitted and decided to also veneer her posterior teeth.

5 Front Top Veneers as you can see the gums were very inflamed , so needed hygienist first
This patient had periodontal disease, he had to improve his gum health with regular hygienist visits before we could proceed with any cosmetic treatment.
After non-invasive preparation of his teeth, the patient had five all ceramic veneers fitted with our Same Day Treatment option.

Grey Gums from Grey Root Canals and Metal Crowns Covered in Old Porcelain
This patients’ right central incisor was failing, and he was going to lose the tooth. The patient decided to have a Same Day Implant placed as well as to change two of his old crowns. The aim was to achieve a healthier, more natural appearance as well as to reduce the grey colour to his gum caused by metal bonded restorations.
One implant and two all ceramic crowns placed on the same day.

Holistic Removal of Amalgams and New Four New Front Veneer Ceramic Crowns
The patients’ anterior teeth were mismatched in colour and the shape made her appear older.
She had her four front teeth crowned with all ceramic restorations to match her remaining teeth and the change would be so subtle that only she would notice it and was comfortable.
Tim May and the Technical Team
“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.”
