Sometimes, if the tooth misalignment is minor, you can "visually" straighten your teeth with porcelain veneers and crowns, something commonly referred to as "instant orthodontics". In cases where teeth have been previously heavily-filled and are darkly stained, patients will often select this option, since the colour and visual position of the teeth can be corrected at the same time.
Today, with the advancements in cosmetic dentistry you can achieve straightened teeth using some of the more popular cosmetic treatments such as "Laminate Veneers" and "Zirconium Crowns", as part of a smile makeover.
Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the study and treatment of improper bites, which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw improved bite (occlusion). During a typical orthodontics treatment, removable appliances, headgear, expansion appliances, and many other devices can be used to move the teeth.
There are many reasons why the teeth may be crooked. It may be caused by structural changes of the mouth due to aging, or due to tooth loss and the remaining teeth shifting, gum disease or they could be crooked simply because it is the natural formation of the teeth we are born with.
Teeth straightening can be achieved with orthodontic methods or with cosmetic dental treatments. The most common treatments are laminate veneer or Lumineer treatments and zirconium crown or porcelain crown treatments.
The procedure depends on the treatment. You can find more about these procedures on the following pages:
I am very very happy
My name is Antoinette from Dublin, I have a fear of the dentist and am a very nervous patient, but was so impressed by Tourmedical’s reviews and response to my enquiry, that I felt I could trust them. I made my enquiry via their website, and I was contacted by their Irish representative and guided the rest of the way. The whole procedure was made so easy, As I came just before the season started, so all I had to do was book my flight and I was collected from the airport and taken to my hotel, which was arranged by them. The dentist was so nice and friendly and she and her staff made me feel at ease. The dentist is a miracle worker, I never thought my smile would be as fantastic as it is. I am very very happy. Thank you.
I am very happy
I heard about Tourmedical from my family, who had treatment with the clinic and were very happy. I was very impressed with the attention to care on all stages of my treatment, from pick up, from the airport, assistance with arranging accommodation and that all my needs were taken care off. The clinic has a very warm atmosphere and is spotlessly clean, so I felt very confident & at ease with the lovely dentist and her team. I not only have my Hollywood smile, but also perfect functionality of my teeth. I would highly recommend the practice, so anyone with travelling in mind, I can re-assure you, don’t hesitate – take the plunge.
The clinic is outstanding
Id heard about Tourmedical when I was on holidays earlier this year. They had patients staying in the same hotel and I was watching the daily progress of how things were going for them, etc. I also know the staff of the hotel I was staying in well and they recommended Tourmedical to me also, so I had my decision made before I contacted them. I was very happy with the response I got from Majella , she was so helpful and re-assuring, as this was my life time dream and I wanted to be 100% sure of what I was doing and that they knew what I wanted and expected from the treatment.
Dr Elcin was so friendly and listened to me when I was explaining everything I wanted and also that I was soo soo nervous.
The clinic is outstanding, ive never been in a dentist with so much hi-tech equipment and the cleanliness was prestine, you could eat off the floor!!
Im here now after a week and had a fab holiday plus my dream has come true, I even had a meltdown on my checking day, when I saw my teeth, that this was the new me and new beginnings.
I now have the confidence I so wanted for so many years and its all down to the team at Tourmedical.
Thank you all so much.
My experience was fantastic
I was searching online and found Tourmedical, I liked what I saw on their website and social media pages, so I made contact with them and was talked through everything. I booked my trip and told Majella and she arranged the rest for me. As it was off season, I was picked up from the airport by Omer and he is a really nice man and gave me plenty of information on the area and history of Turkey. The next morning he collected me and I was taken to the clinic, my xray was taken and then the Cosmetic Dentist talked me through everything and what my options were. My plan was put in place and my treatment started, which was very efficient and pain free. I like my food and was a little worried about eating, but even with my Temporary crowns, I enjoyed the Turkish food and drink.
Im delighted with the outcome and will recommend Tourmedical to all my friends. My experience was fantastic from start to finish.
I have my beautiful smile
I found Tourmedical on line and am absolutely delighted I did. Im amazed about the whole process how easy and quick everything was from step 1. We made our enquiry, Majella was back to us immediately and asked me for photos to show her Cosmetic Dentist and to get advice on what was the best way forward for me, as had no idea. The whole procedure was so relaxed. Their driver picked us up from the hotel & he was so nice and made us feel totally at ease and took us to the clinic and thee we were met by a smiling team, who looked after us. My husband and daughter were given refreshments while I had my treatment carried out and the place is amazing, staff and Cosmetic dentist are so so nice, and now I have my beautiful smile.
Thank you so much.
