Hungary stands out as the most popular country for dental treatments, with many people combining their dental work with a city break to enjoy the sightseeing and the famous spa baths of Budapest
Recent research shows that nearly 75% of people are unhappy with their smile. If you dream of having beautiful, even, white teeth you’ve probably asked your dentist about having some cosmetic work done. But in the UK, the NHS doesn’t cover non essential dental work which means looking into the costs of a private dentist. With the average price of a single dental implant costing £2,000.00, it’s a dream many people can’t afford. But by looking a little further afield you can find good cosmetic dentistry abroad and discover that prices are a lot more reasonable.
The last decade has seen thousands of Brits travel overseas for dentistry. Often the treatment only requires one trip and European dentists are experienced in fixing crooked, chipped or broken teeth. Veneers or crowns are the answer and make a huge difference to your smile. If the problem is missing teeth, then dental implants are the most natural looking solution and are much more affordable overseas that in the UK. Having cosmetic dentistry abroad is very common and with the right research, it’s easy to find a reputable clinic who’ll charge considerably less than a UK cosmetic dentist.
Making up your mind to look further afield is only the first step; the next is to decide which country will offer the best quality dental work, for the best price. Europe is the obvious choice for anyone travelling from Britain, with fast journey times and good English spoken in most countries it’s the place to start looking. Hungary, Turkey, Poland and Bulgaria are all destinations for cosmetic dentistry abroad. But Hungary stands out as the most popular country for dental treatments, with many people combining their dental work with a city break to enjoy the sightseeing and the famous spa baths of Budapest. The cost savings are significant, for example a porcelain crown in the UK will cost around £550.00 whilst in Budapest it will be approximately £200.00.
In Hungary, the dentists have to continue their training throughout their career, keeping the standard of treatment very high, but living costs are low so dental services are much cheaper than in the UK. Finding a good clinic in Budapest involves more research and it’s best to look for recommendations from other Britons who have had treatment there. Going through a UK operator can add a level of comfort as you’ll be able to get all your questions answered before leaving home. When considering cosmetic dentistry abroad look for a company who has been operating for at least five years as they will have established themselves with the top clinics and best dentists. Reputable companies will offer UK consultations and a smile design service so you can see what the end result will look like. Once you’re happy, it’s just a question of booking flights and hotels. Don’t forget to allow some time in your itinerary for a little sightseeing which will make the trip feel even more worthwhile.
