The cost of teeth whitening in Turkey can vary depending on several factors:

- Dentist: The cost of teeth whitening in Turkey can also vary depending on the qualifications and experience of the dentist in question, with prices being higher for dentists with specialized training or advanced technology.
- Materials Used: the cost can also be affected by the type of materials used, such as the strength and type of the whitening agent and the type of custom trays.
In general, teeth whitening in Turkey costs anywhere from $200 to $800 or more, depending on the factors above. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the cheapest option may not always provide the best results. It’s important to choose a reputable provider and opt for high-quality materials to ensure the best possible results.
Most people with healthy teeth and gums can receive teeth whitening. But this is not always the case. Here are the cases in which the procedure may not be advisable:
It’s important to discuss your dental health and goals with a dental professional before undergoing teeth whitening to determine if it’s right for you and to ensure the best possible results.
Teeth whitening in Turkey is a very safe procedure, but it is performed by humans, which are not infallible creatures. Hence the importance of choosing qualified dental professionals, even if it means a little price raise.
Here are some potential risks of the procedure:
- Gum Irritation: The whitening agent can irritate the gums, causing discomfort or even bleeding.
- Uneven Whitening: a uniform result may not happen, with some teeth appearing lighter than others.
- Damaged Dental Work: whitening can cause damage to dental work such as crowns, veneers, or fillings, leaving them discolored or mismatched with the surrounding teeth.
- Overuse: Overuse of whitening products or procedures can cause long-term damage to the tooth enamel, making the teeth more susceptible to decay and sensitivity.
- Ineffective Results: the procedure may not work for everyone, particularly if the discoloration is caused by intrinsic factors such as medications or genetics.
- Unqualified Providers: when performed by unqualified providers or with substandard materials, results can be poor or even harm teeth and gums.
Teeth whitening can be done in combination with other dental procedures or even cosmetic surgery. However, it’s important to discuss your goals and any potential interactions with your dental professional and cosmetic surgeon.
For example, teeth whitening may be performed before or after veneers or dental implants to achieve a more uniform or brighter smile. Similarly, teeth whitening can be performed in combination with cosmetic surgery procedures such as a face lift or rhinoplasty to enhance the overall appearance and improve facial symmetry.
