#2 OPEN COMMUNICATION
"Consultation without any obligation"
We believe great results are only possible through open communication.

No hidden extras, no surprises; just full and frank consultation from start to finish.

TOP & BOTTOM
CROWNS & VENEERS
Full mouth crown/veneer solutions – also known as the “Hollywood” treatment - provides the patient with a dazzling smile. The procedure can include a minimum of eight top and eight bottom crowns and veneers – a number equal to the teeth you see in a mirror when you smile.
We use the best EU-approved materials available and digital dentistry solutions to provide the fastest, most comfortable and aesthetically-pleasing results.
There are three types of products used for full-mouth crowns/veneers:
· Ultra-translucent, multi-layered Zirconia veneers.
· Zirconium crowns
· Porcelain crowns.
Ultra Transculent Multi Layered Zirconia Veneers / Crowns
+ Less preparing (cutting/filing/shaving) is required on the enamel.
+ More translucent than Zirconium crowns which means a more natural look.
+ Natural teeth are actually layered and UTML Zirconia veneers are made to mimic them to provide a natural look.
+ Strong enough to last up to 15 years with proper care & maintenance and regular check-ups. (We provide free check-up for 5 years for our patients.)
If you are looking for the best of the best, these are what we would recommend
+ Zirconium crowns are also translucent for a natural look.
+ They are also strong enough to last up to 15 years with proper care and maintenance.
+ Zirconium crowns are the most popular among patients seeking a “Hollywood” smile.
+ Affordable and functional, porcelain crowns offer a smooth white finish at a reasonable cost and aesthetic.
- Porcelain is fused onto darker metal which stops the light so the crowns do not appear as natural as the more expensive options.

The treatment takes around a week to complete; in other words, if we begin the procedure on Monday, it will usually be completed by the Friday or Saturday of the same week. Both of the procedures usually require between two to three visits.
Your temporary teeth will be fitted just after the initial filing procedure.
First appointment (Day 1): Filing down the tooth/teeth, which takes between two to four hours, depending on the condition of the teeth involved.
Second appointment (Day 5 or 6): Fitting the crown/veneer, which usually takes between one and two hours. However, if necessary, our dentist may schedule an additional appointment to complete the work.
However, it’s important to emphasise that crowns can only be fitted over healthy or treated teeth. If there is any gum disease, infected roots or decay, it will need to be treated first. Therefore, it may need more time than planned before.
Our dentists will take the necessary X-rays required to establish the details of the recommended supporting emergency treatment. If the patient agrees the additional treatment, we recommend allowing a total of ten days for the procedure.
Colour is an option which patients can choose from a palette. Bleach white or the natural colour of your existing teeth? It's totally up to you.
Of course, the total cost depends on how many crowns/veneers the patient needs, as a general guide, the number of crowns includes the number of present and lost teeth.
· Ultra-translucent, multi-layered Zirconium crowns: £275 per tooth (in cash £250)
· Zirconium crowns: £220 per tooth (in cash £200)
· Metal-fused porcelain crowns: £160 per tooth (in cash £145)

#2 PRICING:"We only do the treatment you need"
In Holident, we never pushed the patients to the treatment that cost much than needed. If you need only 6 crowns you will never be offered for more, if there is a single possibility to save your natural tooth, we will effort for it. We are in Fethiye forever 15 years and we know that our relation is not just for a single visit.
If they are properly maintained and cared for, crowns and veneers can last more than 15 years. If you are not in the habit of grinding your teeth, if you brush them daily and floss regularly and visit us at least once a year, your crowns and veneers will last longer. We also provide free check-up for five years. Click here for a testimonial from one of our first patients who has benefited from crowns for over 15 years - and still without any problems.
WITH LASER WHITENING
Your top front teeth are the most visible part of your smile so it’s quite common for patients to concentrate on those at the beginning and to opt to have them crowned. However, there are options for your bottom teeth too:
Patients can opt to have their top teeth crowned and then choose laser whitening for the bottom ones to enhance their smile.
It is possible to complete the treatment in two visits. The bottom teeth can be completed during the second appointment.
The treatment can usually be completed during two (sometimes three) appointments booked over five days. The first appointment would normally last approximately three hours and the second to fit the crowns about an hour. If needed you will be called for third appointment in case of any small adjustment after 1-2 days.
Please visit our whitening page to find out more about our laser-whitening technology.
Total cost depends on how many crowns/veneers that you need. As a general guide, the number of crowns includes the number of present and lost teeth. For top teeth treatment between 8 to 12 crowns should be crowned. Here you can see costs for each material:
Ultra Transculent Multi Layered Zirconium Crowns: £275 per tooth (in cash £250)
Zirconium Crowns: £220 / per tooth (in cash £200)
Metal Fused Porcelain Crowns: £160 / per tooth (in cash £145)
Beyond Laser Whitening costs £125 / per jaw

CROCKED TEETH SOLUTIONS
Having crowns fitted usually involves damaged worn or broken teeth being filed and the crowns fitted over the top. This means crooked teeth can be repaired and you can see examples in these before and after images here
Details of procedures, costs and timescales are outlined above.
MISSING TEETH SOLUTIONS
There are two methods we use to replace missing teeth:
2. Implants (more information is available on our Implants page)
Implants are lifetime solution and are preferable if the following conditions can be met:
• You have enough healthy bone.
• You have enough space between the teeth and around the gap.
• You don’t have diabetes.
• You don't have anchor teeth for a bridge.
Bridges are another option to replace missing teeth and offer the following advantages:
• They are more affordable.
• A fitting can be completed in one visit.
Before and after images of bridges fitted by Holident Dental Hospital can be viewed below.
ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
ABOUT CROWNS AND VENEERS
I have small teeth. Would it be possible to lengthen them with crowns and veneers?
Crowns can be fitted over your existing teeth to elongate them from the level of the gum, providing the patient with larger teeth and a brighter smile. However, patients who tend to grind their teeth can damage newly-fitted crowns so the habit may need to be addressed first, perhaps through a night guard or Botox treatment on jaw muscles. There is always a risk of chipping. The best way of crown lengthening is to combine 'Gum Surgery' and 'Cosmetic Treatment'. When you visit us, your consultation will be done by our cosmetic dentist and periodontologist to decide what type of a 'Gummy Smile Treatment' you need. If there isn't any infectious of gum then 'Simple Gum Replacement' can be held via cauterisation and this is an immediate treatment. On the other hand, if you need a 'Complex Gum Replacement', it would be a surgical procedure in which bone and gum replacement is performed. And after this surgical procedure, there is a minimum three weeks of healing time. Go to our periodontology page to find out more.
Can a discolored crown be repaired?
A good crown should last up to 15 years with proper care and maintenance but can become discoloured over time. If so, a crown should be replaced even if it’s a single crown among several.
To prevent discoloring of the crown you can see the recommendations below;
1. Heavy smoking causes discolourisation
2. Coffee and wine should be consumed with a glass of water.
3. Daily 2-3 times brushing and flossing is essential.
4. Follow your free check-ups (for every six months) at least once a year.
What if they are broken?Crowns last over 15 years and they can be discolored due to maintainence and product life. Crowns can not be whitened If you are just unhappy about existing color of your old crowns only should be replaced.
I’m generally happy with the shape and colour of my teeth but I just want to adjust a few at the front. What would be the best option for me?
We always aim to protect and preserve natural teeth and, if you’re mostly happy with yours but considering minor improvements, bonding may be an option. However, we’d urge patients be sure they understand bonding treatment means putting composite fillings over your existing tooth layer by layer using a laser. We can shape a tooth aesthetically but bonding is not as durable as a crown and the filling may need to be replaced over time.
We would therefore only recommend bonding in the following circumstances:
• If you are resident in or visit the Fethiye area frequently so we can help with the maintenance of your bonding.
• If you are comfortable about bonding being applied in Turkey but maintained by a dentist elsewhere.
• If you are not in the habit of grinding your teeth.
You can see examples of bonding treatment completed by Holident Dental Hospital below:
