Dentistry in Turkey is among the highest-quality medical services in the world. Clinics in Turkey can perform even the most complicated dental treatments.
Compared to the UK, where dental treatments not on the NHS and without insurance can be prohibitively expensive, dental procedures in Turkey are both affordable and similar in quality. It makes Turkey the perfect destination for restoring your dental health.

Cost of Dental Implants in Turkey
On average, dental implants at Dentatur dental clinic in Turkey cost £ 250 for a single implant. If the patient is getting surgery requiring installing several implants, such as an All-on-4 procedure, the implants’ cost is included in the total price of the treatment.
Implants replace missing or very damaged teeth. The implant has a screw shape and is installed into the jawbone to act as an artificial root. After the implantation surgery, dentists can attach all kinds of tooth replacements to the implant, such as crowns, bridges or other prostheses.
BEFORE & AFTER
A distinguishing feature of dental implants, not present in removable tooth replacements, such as dentures, is the implants’ ability to osseointegrate. Osseointegration is the natural fusing process between the implant and the surrounding bone tissue. The patient’s organism treats the implant as a natural tooth root, and this helps to prevent jaw degradation. When a person has a missing tooth, the bone where the tooth’s root was located begins to degrade, as the organism treats it as redundant. It negatively impacts the surrounding teeth and the jaw, making it smaller and narrower.
At our clinic, patients can get both metal and porcelain dental implants in Turkey.
Metal implants, usually made of titanium, are durable and well-established in dentistry. Their properties are well-researched, and their long-term service is proven by numerous studies. Titanium does not react with food or surrounding tissues and is non-toxic.
Porcelain implants, usually made of zirconia, are a newer development. They, too, are non-reactive and non-toxic but, as opposed to titanium, also non-allergenic. In rare cases, people can have an allergic reaction to titanium-containing alloys or pure titanium metal, which makes zirconia veneers more suitable for such patients. Zirconium-containing ceramic is more expensive, but its aesthetic value is higher, as they are white and do not show under the prostheses if the patient’s gums recede. Zirconia implants are not as well tested as titanium, as they are a much newer type of implant.
Dental implants, in general, are among the most expensive dental treatments but are permanent and usually do not require replacement. While the price for an implant in Turkey is lower than in the UK, Turkish clinics use the same brands of implants, so they are of the same quality.

Cost of Dental Veneers and Dental Crowns in Turkey
Dental veneer installation is a cosmetic dental treatment often used for tooth whitening or shape correction. The veneers, also called laminates, are thin plates of ceramic or resin placed in front of the teeth to cover defects or gaps. The price of veneers depends on their material, with the average price of £100.
Ceramic veneers are usually made of dental porcelain. It is an opaque white material, often used in a so-called “Hollywood smile” procedure due to its brightness and natural appearance.
Veneers made of resin are usually called composite veneers. They are the cheapest type of veneers and are not very natural-looking, but they are often used as temporary prostheses before getting permanent veneers. Composite veneers stain easily, so if a patient wants to wear them for a prolonged time, they require professional cleaning at the dental clinic.
There are also many types of modern ceramic veneers, such as Emax. These veneers are even more natural-looking than regular dental porcelain veneers because of their translucency, though they are slightly less durable. Emax veneers are more expensive than regular porcelain ones and can’t cover significant tooth defects due to their semi-transparency.
Many modern veneers are designed using CAM/CAD technology to match the patient’s tooth shape. As a result, they align with the tooth with minimal adjustments.
A dental crown in Turkey is another popular prosthesis type that has both cosmetic and practical functions. They are also known as full veneers. Dental crowns are similar to veneers, but the crown is thicker and covers the whole tooth’s surface. A dental crown can restore even a highly damaged tooth if its root is healthy.
Dental crowns are usually made of the same materials as veneers. Because crowns are thicker, they can also be made of several combined materials, such as porcelain fused to metal crowns. Just like veneers, the price of the dental crown depends on its material and brand, with an average cost of £100.
The range of metals used for metal dental crowns is wider than for veneers, so even people with titanium allergies can have a metal crown. Metal crowns can also have a porcelain outer layer (porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns) to match the colour of the patient’s other teeth.

Other Popular Dental Treatments to Get in Turkey
As Turkish dentistry is a well-developed field, clinics in Tukey can offer medical tourists a wide range of medical services. The most popular of them are:
- teeth whitening;
- root canal
Teeth whitening is a procedure that uses a special whitening agent to remove the build-up tooth plaque and make the patient’s natural teeth whiter. It is only suitable for patients with healthy teeth who do not have any restorations. Patients who do not meet these conditions may install dental veneers in Turkey to make their teeth whiter.
Root canal treatment is used if the patient’s root is infected. Infected roots gradually decay and, if not treated in time, require removal to prevent serious complications such as dental abscesses. The only way to replace a removed root is dental implant installation. Root canal treatment allows the root to be left intact so that the patient can install a dental crown or bridge later. The infected tissues in the root are removed during the root canal treatment, and then the tooth is sealed to prevent the reintroduction of the infection.
Dentures are a type of removable prosthesis, but sometimes All-on-4 and other cemented bridges installed on implants are called permanent dentures. Removable dentures are used to replace several missing teeth and are attached using different types of attachments.
Why are Dental Treatments Cheaper in Turkey?
Dentistry and other types of healthcare are much cheaper in Turkey than in the UK, but Turkish clinics can offer treatments of the same quality. It’s possible due to the unique economic situation in Turkey.
Turkey, unlike the UK, is a major medical tourism destination. Patients from all over the world come to Turkey to get affordable yet high-quality medical services. This popularity urged the government of Turkey to provide subsidies to the country’s private clinics to secure its position as one of the leaders in medical tourism.
In addition to subsidies and other types of financial aid, the healthcare prices in Turkey reflect the country’s lower living costs. Lower living costs mean that the prices of all services and goods produced in Turkey are lower than in a county with higher living costs, such as the UK. Office rent and other expenses associated with running a business are also lower in Turkey. As a result of this combination of governmental aid and small business expenses, Turkish clinics can afford to install Western-made implants, veneers and other tooth prostheses for a much lower price than in the UK.
Furthermore, at Dentatur clinic, healthcare services for foreign customers are usually offered in dental package deals, which makes every service included in a package slightly less expensive.
What Factors Affect the Price of Dental Implants in Turkey?
The main factors affecting the price of a dental implant are its material and brand. The more well-known metal implants cost less on average than ceramic ones, as they are manufactured in large numbers, taking advantage of economies of scale. Titanium alloys are also generally cheaper, as titanium is not as rare as zirconium.
The implant brand also influences the price. Most implants come from Switzerland, Germany and the USA, and their prices reflect manufacturing costs in these countries.
Are There Any Hidden Costs?
There are no hidden costs when you get any procedure at Dentatur clinic. The only reason the total cost of all procedures may be higher than estimated before the check-up during the consultation is if you need additional treatments, such as tooth removal, bone graft or root canal treatment. Such procedures may be mandatory to get other ones. For example, a patient with low bone density will not be eligible for a dental implant without undergoing a bone graft, as the implants can pose a health risk otherwise.
