The reason behind these rumours, news, and defamation is to stop people from going to Turkey for their new teeth, hair, or other aesthetic purposes.People from all around the world choosing Turkey means that the doctors are not going to have a lot of patient in the UK, USA, or anywhere around the world.

    The quality of the dental implants in Turkey, dental veneers in Turkey, teeth implants in Turkey, and smile makeover in Turkey is known by thousands of people around the world. People are choosing Turkey because of affordable prices but the problem is that people are choosing clinics straightaway and they choose the cheapest dental clinics in Turkey.

Using Digital Dentistry means that the dental veneers in Turkey, dental crowns in Turkey, and dental laminate veneers in Turkey will be created perfectly and the patient will get to choose every part of their new teeth in Turkey. 

    Unlike the Turkey teeth people see on the news, here at Dentafly Dental Implants and Smile Studio, we are not sending our patients back to their hometowns with disappointing results.  We have our own laboratory team within our dental clinics in Turkey so that we can make as many adjustments as the patient wants in order to achieve perfection.

    How you can calculate cost of dental treatments in Turkey ?

    Calculating the cost of dental treatments in Turkey, like in many other countries, involves considering various factors. Here’s a general guide on how you can estimate these costs:

    1. Type of Dental Treatment
    The cost primarily depends on the type of dental treatment you need. Common treatments include teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, implants, and other procedures. Each has its price range.

    2. Clinic and Dentist’s Reputation
    The choice of clinic and the dentist’s expertise can significantly affect the price. High-end clinics in major cities or those with highly reputable dentists tend to charge more.

    3. Location of Dental Treatment
    The cost can vary depending on the city or region in Turkey. Istanbul, Antalya might have higher prices compared to smaller cities or towns due to higher operational costs and demand.

    4. Materials Used
    The materials used for treatments (e.g., ceramic, porcelain, composite for veneers, or the type of dental implant) can impact the cost. Higher quality or branded materials usually come at a higher price.

    5. Additional Procedures
    Sometimes, additional procedures are necessary (e.g., bone graft for an implant, root canal before crowning), which can add to the total cost.

    6. Insurance and Payment Plans
    Whether or not you have dental insurance that covers treatment abroad can affect your out-of-pocket expenses. Some clinics offer payment plans which can ease the financial burden.

    Steps to Calculate Cost:
    1. Identify the Treatment Needed: Research or consult with a dentist to understand the specific treatment you need.
    2. Get Quotes: Contact multiple clinics in Turkey for quotes. Many clinics offer online consultations and can provide estimates based on your case.
    3. Ask for Detailed Breakdowns: Request a detailed cost breakdown for each aspect of your treatment plan, including any additional procedures that might be necessary.
    4. Consider Travel Expenses: If you’re traveling from abroad, include travel, accommodation, and living expenses during your stay.
    5. Insurance and Discounts: Check if any part of the treatment can be covered by insurance or if the clinic offers any discounts for international patients.

    Online Tools and Resources
    Some websites and online platforms specialize in medical tourism and can provide estimates for dental treatments in Turkey based on your specific needs. They can also offer reviews and ratings of clinics and dentists, which can help in making an informed decision.

    Given the variability in individual cases and the dynamic nature of healthcare pricing, getting a direct consultation with the dental clinic remains the most accurate way to estimate costs. Dentafly launched an online All on Four Costs calculator tool for this reason. Patients can easily calculate their treatment costs in 2 steps.


    Every patient is different. This means that every treatment will be different. Most of All on System dental treatments in Antalya/Turkey at Dentafly progress is similar.

    On the first visit, after the consultation, the treatment for All on 4/5/6/7/8 will begin with:

    1. Extraction of teeth (if there is any)
    2. Placement of the implants
    1. The implants will be placed at the same day right after the teeth extraction

    And the first day is finished. We will take our patients back to their hotels for them to rest and enjoy the weather of Antalya however they wish. They can go outside to walk around and see what Antalya offers them or sit at the reception and talk with other friendly people. On the next day:

    1. 3D mouth impression via 3Shape Digital Dentistry System
      1. We are working with fully digital dentistry systems. We are not using dental mould to make an impression on our patients. Dental moulds are uncomfortable for the patient whereas the 3Shape system is extremely comfortable and quick. 

    The data from the 3Shape Digital Dentistry equipment is sent to the laboratory team for designers to start designing the rehearsal temporary teeth. This design will be custom for every patients’ mouth system such as the jaw position, gum position and gum length. On the next day:

     2. We will see our patient for the rehearsal of their fixed and aesthetic temporary teeth. 

    • 2.1. We will test the biting position and the patient will try them on to see if they are comfortable.
    • 2.2.If they are comfortable, the patient will give us the okay and we will start producing the fixed and aesthetic temporary teeth that the patient will use for the next 3-6 months.

    It is important that the patient is comfortable with the fixed and aesthetic temporary teeth. We are custom designing each one of the temporary teeth to fit for the patient’s mouth system and for them to be comfortable until they are back for their second visit to complete their treatment. On the next day: 

     3. We will put the fixed and aesthetic temporary teeth and our patient will go home with a temporary but an aesthetic smile. 

    On the first appointment of the  second visit

    1. We will remove the fixed and aesthetic temporary teeth and do another 3Shape digital scan to start the permanent teeth preparation. 
      1. The patient will choose their design, shape, and color of their permanent new teeth. 

    After the patient is satisfied with their choice, we will again prepare a rehearsal temporary teeth. On the next day:

    1. We will place the rehearsal temporary teeth for patients to see the design and the shape. 
      1. At this point, the color will not be shown because of the material of the temporary teeth.
      2. At this point, the patient can make adjustments to their design and shape.
      3. If any adjustments are made, we will see another rehearsal for the patients’ satisfaction and to check the biting position and occlusion for a healthy mouth system. 


    When the patient is happy with their design and shape, we will prepare the permanent teeth. On the next appointment:


    1. Patients will see their permanent new teeth in their mouth.
      1. We will not permanently place the new teeth because:
        1. Patient will check whether or not they are happy
        2. We will check the biting position and the occlusion
    2. If the patient is happy with the design, shape, and the color of their new teeth, we will permanently place their new teeth in Antalya/Turkey. 




    Dental Panoramic X-Rays and 3D X-Rays are extremely important for both dental prosthetic doctors and dental implant doctors. With Panoramic X-Ray and 3D X-Ray, we are able to see everything that the mouth of the patient has in terms of any problems, abscess, infection, bone quality, bone level, bone width, bone length, and plan the treatment that is best fit for the patient. After a certain plan is set, the patient will not have to go to a dentist anymore, especially with All on System dental implant patients.

    We are using Panoramic X-Ray and 3D X-Ray for consultation.The patient is accompanied by our examination doctor, dental implant surgeon, and a translator or their patient coordinator. Main focus of the consultation is to create the best and healthiest plan for the patient. After the best and the healthiest plan is set, we are asking the patients’ requests. If they are possible within the lines of mouth health and function, we can adjust the plan accordingly. If not, we will explain to the patient and adjust the plan close to the patients’ requests as much as it is possible within the lines of health and mouth function. 


    Antalya is the main attraction point of Turkey regarding dental treatment in Turkey. The reason behind this is the weather and the sightseeing opportunities. Antalya has beautiful hotels that are close to the sea and the rooms are all looking at the beautiful sea. 

    Other than the beautiful sea view, Antalya is extremely rich with ancient sites that our patients can see. Most famous of the ancient sites is the Old Town. It is now the centre of Antalya for entertainment, boat cruise, and many more activities that our patients can do.
