Why Do People Talk About “Turkey Veneers Gone Wrong”?
It seems that one of the most interesting and discussed topics when it comes to medical tourism, especially in Turkey, is the “danger” of going to Turkey for a medical procedure. European and American clinics speak extensively of these alleged risks, of potential plots to ruin the patient’s health, and of “too cheap” prices surely hide something scary and dangerous.
The cost of living in Turkey is clearly forgotten when speaking about these matters. Medical tourism clinics, perceived as affordable for international patients, are not as cheap and affordable for Turkish people who do not have the great advantage of exchanging currencies such as euros, dollars, or pounds. They also forget to look at great patient results just to highlight one or two examples of negative results – often without proving or disclosing where these photos of results really come from.
Furthermore, these accusations against Turkish clinics hide a – not too veiled – racist prejudice towards non-European countries as unsafe, full of impostors, backward. For years, Turkey has been at the forefront of the medical sector with modern, clean, safe medical centers equipped with cutting-edge technologies.
So when you see some “Turkey veneers gone wrong” article think “who’s really benefitting from these kinds of negative ideas?”.
How Much Do Veneers Cost in Turkey?
“How much do veneers cost in Turkey?” is the first question people ask when considering getting veneers in Turkey. Veneers in Turkey cost considerably less and this has always been a great advantage for international patients who turn to medical tourism and to a dental clinic in Turkey. The affordable price in Turkey is often two to three times lower than prices in America, the UK, or Europe. This allows a growing number of patients to afford high-quality dental veneers treatment and dental care without having to spend exorbitant amounts of money or avoid treatments due to prohibitive costs.
The cost of living, the currency exchange, and large investments that Turkey has made to implement and help the private healthcare sector allow for the incredible value for money and the cost of dental veneers in Turkey, without compromising on the quality in any way.
How much do dental veneers cost? The average veneers cost is:
|Types Of Veneers||Price Range in Turkey||Price Range in the UK||Price Range in Europe||Price Range in America|

Why so much difference? In the next paragraph, you will find the explanation. Why Turkey is one of the cheapest countries with the highest quality.
Why Are Veneers Cheaper In Turkey?
The first thought of those who have never turned to Turkey for medical treatments and want healthy teeth is: why are dental veneers so affordable in Turkey? What does such a low price hide? Scepticism and doubts are understandable, those who have already turned to the Turkish private national health system in the past know perfectly well its qualities, merits, and cutting-edge technologies offered. This includes excellence in dentistry.
The main reasons are:
- The Turkish Lira: The Turkish Lira, the currency of Turkey, has a much lower value than the Euro, Dollar or Pound. This means that it allows those with strong currencies to obtain extremely affordable prices thanks to the exchange.
- The Cost of Living: The cost of living in Turkey, due to the low value of the local currency, is extremely low compared to other European countries, America, Canada, UK, etc. This factor contributes to the final price of the service. Thanks to a lower cost of labor, lower cost of materials, structures and even the most advanced technologies.
- State Incentives: Turkey has always recognized the high potential of medical tourism and has therefore invested in the development and the quality of this sector. This is why excellence in dentistry can be achieved. Part of these investments include loans, tax reduction, monetary aids, facilitating the hiring of international staff, etc.
