The enamel damage should not really come into it if done properly, you should be able to `google` for more info.
`false look` I dont think you can get your teeth whiter than they naturally were with lazer so what you are seeing is the difference between the two, a bit like when you clean paving slabs after years of dirt building up. It will depend on how much `staining` has accumulated over the years.

Days On The Beach in Side

My dentist is in Manavgat, near Side and Antalya - far from Bodrum - but she gave me excellent advice when I asked about whitening. DON'T DO IT!!! It only lasts up to 2 years and costs UK Pounds 200. I did, however, have 3 teeth capped in porcelain which came with a 5 year guarantee and cost UK Pounds 100 per tooth. I had been to 3 other Turkish dentists before I found Halile who is definitely the best. She is above Yapi Kredi bank (right of front door and up one flight of stairs). You must put blue plastic covers on your shoes when you enter before even sitting in the waiting area. The place looks like something out of James Bond - all silver and white and gleaming - and I'm very squeamish but it didn't hurt a bit. All done within a week. www dot kemdental dot com or phone 0090-242-746-5844

I also was given the same advice.Prior to moving here I asked my dentist in the UK. for a cost to rectify the problem.Answer was, you need 14 caps and a bridge.Price 3500 GBP's.I was recommended to a Turk Dentist and he told me the the same work required but the price was a little different at 600 GBP's I had the work done and NO REGRETS perfect after five years.I guess he is a little bit more expensive 5 years down the line but his workmanship is excellent.Our Danish friends use him and there Danish dentist tells them that the work is first class. This is in Antalya by the way.

I had my teeth laser whitened a couple of years ago.

They didn't come up really bright-white or look false.I was pleased with the end results

But it was bl***y painful !!!!!
Not while it's being done but for about 5 hours afterwards !!!!! Every nerve in every tooth jangling at the same time !!
I wont bother again.

Hi,
I also asked in the UK about whitening, but was told it was not suitable for me as I had several white fillings at the front, and these don't react the same as the rest of the tooth. I ended up getting 6 porcelain caps, and and black filling replaced with white. Total cost, 1050 lire. Price was over £3000 in the UK. My UK dentist checked them, and they are great. Best money I have spent on myself. Had this done in Milas.

Laser whitening is great if done correctly - I have referred lots of folks to Derya - dentist on the main Bodrum highway near the antik theatre ( ampitheatre )
If you would like her number please pm me - she speaks perfect english and is very gentle

Price of dental treatment might be higher in UK but I still think you can't beat NHS dental treatment however much we moan about the NHS. Just come back from a dentist in the UK this morning after having treatment in Turkey and I know which one I trust the most. Not so bad if your living in Turkey but if you return back to UK and have problems when you get back where do you end up going? I was advised to have veneers (obviously a quick money maker) fortunately I didn't have them. My dentist has told me today my teeth are perfectly healthy,nice teeth and no way should I go paying for this treatment. Just be careful and don't be talked into any treatment you don't need!

That sounds very good value for 6 porcelain veneers and amalgam fillings replaced with white for 1,050TL! Today I was quoted 1,700TL to replace my amalgam fillings with white (2 visits required) plus an additional 100TL for clean - 650TL for bleaching and 650TL per appointment for sedation. I don't think I need the bleaching but would like sedation for the first appointment when the larger fillings will be done as I am quite phobic - total 2,400TL. So far I have only decided to have the clean ......... partly because of the expense but also the fear factor lol!

I agree, One reason treatment takes longer in the uk (for certain treatments) is to let the tooth settle to see if there are any problems before moving to the next stage. (example root treatments)

Why do teeth have to be white to look acceptable?
If they are healthy and look good,why bother.
My dentist said teeth are naturally an ivory colour and its artificially changing them to comply with this image of bright teeth that blind the person looking at you!!
Unless your teeth are yellow from smoking I cant see the point at all.
A bit like all this cosmetic stuff!!
Have people such low self esteem that the little headstones have to be dead level, exactly the same and gleaming white so that everybody looks exactly the same?
What happened to a bit of individual character?
Probably because I am a bloke I guess and millions of women will argue the opposite Lol

Yes, my dentist in the UK told me white teeth are not always the healthiest - in fact, quite the opposite because a darker/ivory colour shows a higher density/level of calcium deposits? I really only want my amalgam fillings replacing because they are old and leaking and I heard can cause health problems - but 1,800TL (including the clean) is a lot of money to find .......

Derya at Clinic International opposite and just up from the Amthitheatre outside Bodrum is a top Dentist. Her work for us was far better than anything we ever had done in UK.

bicarbonate of soda, carrefour, 75 kurus for 50 grams. use for 10 days twice a day, same results, except also removes bacteria. for even better teeth n breath, after rinsing (bottled water, of course), you can gargle (don't swallow) with a capful of 3% oksijen su (hydrogen peroxide) and rinse again. (commercial mouthwashes actually destroy the mouth's ability to freshen itself ... they cause bad breath in long-term.) if you look at any tooth whitening product, its active ingredient is bicarbonate of soda. if used regularly, won't make any difference if you drink coffee or smoke, teeth still look great. tastes better than sweetened toothpastes (gross) and, the best bit, is no fluoride. (a big part of hitler's control of the german population was water fluoridisation ... it collects in the pineal gland and causes passivity ... funny how it was introduced in the US in 1946, same time as Operation Paperclip brought all the Nazi scientists to continue their work in the US. if fluoride is such a miracle, how come we don't all have great teeth? anyway, don't want to start a debate, google if you want to check, or just do what your grandparents did and use bicarbonate of soda. don't use baking powder - that's got other stuff in it ... for, erm ... baking. in turkey it's just called 'karbonat', at supermarket or eczane, costs pennies, works great.

That's where I went today and was quoted, for replacing amalgam fillings with white, 150TL large filling, 125TL medium filling and 100TL small filling, 100TL for clean and polish and 650TL for bleaching - I thought that was quite expensive?

Sorry,
I don't understand the bits about the porcelain veneers,
are those caps that are but over your teeth ?
And don't you have to do all your teeth then......otherwise you have 5 white teeth and the rest is less white
I asked my dentist in Belgium about whithening, he is against it.... says it damages the enamel

I know of a few people now who have been to Derya, and have received excellent service, it doesn't sound expensive Helen compared to prices here in the UK.
