Veneers are becoming increasingly popular to achieve a flawless smile. More Britons are turning towards dental tourism as a quick and cost-efficient solution to get the smile they’ve always wanted. Why not also combine it with a trip to one of Europe’s most visited cities, Prague?
First off, let’s take a closer look at the purpose of veneers and if you are a suitable candidate.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are thin layers of material that are placed over your teeth to conceal any flaws. They are usually made of porcelain, but they can also be made from composite resin. They are placed directly onto your natural teeth.
If you’ve tried traditional whitening or brackets without desired effects, or have flaws such as gaps, chips, or cracks veneers may be what you need. There are several reasons people elect to have veneers, let’s look at the primary ones.
- Gaps – Misalignment of your teeth often causes gaps. Typically, these would be fixed with several years of orthodontic treatment. Veneers can conveniently cover those gaps in a matter of a few hours.
- Discoloration – For more severe discoloration and staining veneers may be a good solution, especially if you’ve already tried simple whitening solutions. Veneers can actually give you a much brighter look overall.
- Cracks and Chips – If you have cracks or chips in your teeth, veneers can easily cover them up. Veneers are not only cosmetic, they can also keep cracks and chips from getting perpetually worse.
#1: Cheaper than at Home
Dental procedures are typically much cheaper abroad for the same quality at home. Cost savings are as high as 50% to over 75% by traveling to Central and Eastern Europe.
#2: Completed in 1-2 Days
A dentist specialised in cosmetic veneers abroad can tell by a few mobile photographs sent via email, whether a client is a right candidate for dental veneers or not. And recommend exactly how many veneers will be needed.
You’ll have the convenience of having the entire procedure completed within one to two days. Treatment may take place immediately after the consultation or for more complex procedures it is recommended to split the work into 2 days.
#3: Quality as Good, or Better than at Home
Dental clinics in Central and Eastern Europe have become extremely competitive with their high level of quality, technical equipment and modern settings. Dental tourism is a highly competitive industry, so clinics are striving to improve their facilities and services to give it a competitive advantage.
You’ll find technology and equipment in these clinics to be very similar or even better than at home. If the clinic offers an in-house laboratory, you’re in luck. This allows the skillful and experienced technician to be present during the dental procedure. By being on-site the technician can adjust veneers as much as need be in order to guarantee the best fit and look.
#4: Prague a Favourite Destination
Prague is one of the most popular destinations in Europe today, attracting about 4 million tourists each year. You’ll be amazed at its compact city centre, an intriguing history spanning centuries, with exquisite examples of Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance and Art Nouveau architecture.
