Save and enjoy money in Hungary

Charlie Sheen and his teeth

I love the Daily Mail! They keep me entertained all the time, even with dental related news.

See the headlines I’m not crazy any more,’ insists Charlie Sheen (but his dental work is still a little haywire)” (Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2084322/Charlie-Sheen-shows-odd-looking-tooth-public-appearance-dentist-trip.html#ixzz1j3ZZ2znq)

 

No wonder he’d start his make-over at the dentist’s chair. A new set of teeth can take off up to 15 years, but I don’t see any changes on his smile yet…. Reading the comments, I am not alone. He seems to be in between dental appointments and I have no doubt his dentist will get few promotional mentions…. As we know, our celebs love saving on dental bills. So watch this space.

Charlie Sheen might be able to restore his public image, starting at the therapist and the dentist. But many dental patients just can not afford dental fees and unable to provide public mentions.

So what to do if somebody needs a new smile?

Well, there are several options, of course. The National Health Service can provide certain treatments for free or low cost, or taking out a dental insurance can work out in some cases. Many Eastern European dentists are offering consultations and treatments in the UK, Ireland and in the USA, but also travelling for dental treatments could be a very rewarding option.

Especially if dental patients want to experience a different culture and enjoy further savings on other services, like optician, beautician and spa treatments, as they are a lot cheaper in Hungary.

New Year’s Resolution: a beautiful smile in 2012 on the budget?

Many dental patients are looking to make that big step and invest into a brand new smile, part of a New Years Eve resolution.

The pressure is on. Every day there is some sort of news about celebrity dental makeovers, new types of dental veneers or miraculous dental implants.

Everybody wants to look good and according to several surveys a brilliant smile in on the top 5 when it comes to what men find attractive in women.

A nice smile can make a huge difference, make us look younger, give confidence back, increase our chances of getting a job. All in all, we are not really paying for our dental treatments; we are paying for the emotional feedback once we achieved the desired effect.

Dental patients considering aesthetic makeovers will often find dental veneers, crowns, teeth whitening systems and their combinations will be mostly on their treatment plan.

 


Those patients, looking for a functional fix will be most likely offered dental implants, dental crowns and bridges or in some cases denture stabilisation.


When it comes to New Years Eve’s resolutions, people tend to make a life-changing promise to themselves, some wishes to lose weight, pay off debts, get married, some long for the perfect smile. Travelling to Hungary for dental treatments can be a good alternative to paying the high prices private surgeries charge in England. Most clinics offer 0% deals, accept credit cards or offer alternative payment options.
You can find fairly big clinics in Hungary with all the latest equipments or small, more personal dental studios with only one or two dentists. The quality of dental work will not depend on the size of the surgery. Communication is also very important. Most dentists in Hungary speak perfect English and also many surgeries employ English speaking staff and customer relationship managers.
Dental treatment prices in Hungary can vary. Generally, it depends on the level of the dentist, as Senior dentists, with more experience charge more, but by using them you may reduce the risk of needing complex aftercare. Newly established dental surgeries also offer introductory prices and some offers promotional deals, especially if you are willing to recommend their work or participate in marketing research. The right dental technician can also charge a bit more, but it is really worth paying the extra, as you will be wearing their art work for a long time…
So, check out your options to get the best value for money and enjoy all the benefits Hungary can offer.

Happy New Year, happy new smiles!

Teeth Whitening…..What to expect!

Dentists in both Hungary and England agree that patient expectations for teeth whitening procedures are often unrealistic which can cause disappointment for the patient. Dentists are generally keen to avoid patient dissatisfaction when it comes to teeth whitening procedures and likewise patients don’t want to waste money on procedures that don’t have the desired effect.
Teeth Whitening procedures are often provided in Budapest for overseas dental patients but it is not a procedure whereby the British, Irish or American dental patient will have flown in especially for it. For those patients who require teeth whitening as a standalone procedure it is generally more cost effective to have it done with your local dentist at home. Teeth Whitening often compliments other treatments for the dental tourist rather than it being a standalone procedure. An example would be when a patient is having Bridgework on their upper jaw and they require teeth whitening on the lower jaw so that the upper and lower teeth blend in with each other.


Hungary has a reputation for providing high quality dental care at much lower prices than you would expect in your home country but teeth whitening is one of those procedures whereby the price is approximately the same both in Hungary and in your home country. The main reason is that the bulk of the cost is in the material with little labour involved.
Dental patients are often seduced by teeth whitening advertisements whereby the model has the perfect smile. This often leads to the patient having a greater expectation in the product which can lead to disappointment and perhaps even complaint.

Crooked Teeth
It may sound obvious but teeth whitening procedures do not fix crooked teeth. If you have crooked teeth then your teeth will still be crooked after the teeth whitening procedure. They will just be whiter crooked teeth. Advertising is very powerful and often patients will think that they will get the perfect smile just like the model in the teeth whitening advertisement.

Tetracycline Staining
Once again, teeth whitening procedures has its limitations when it comes to tetracycline staining. Teeth whitening may help but often it will not give you that perfect smile like the model in the advert or brochure.

A1 White Smile
Just because the model in the teeth whitening brochure has that perfect white smile it does not mean that the same can be achieved for your teeth. With claims that laser teeth whitening can take your back up to 10 shades whiter it is hard to ignore but in reality the dentist should only try to do what is realistic. In many cases teeth whitening is used to take your teeth back just a few shades as safety is important and the health of your tooth should not be compromised.

Lindsay Lohan’s Public torture over her deteriorating teeth

25/10/2011

stained teeth, teeth whitening, dentist Hungary, dentist Budapest,

During the last few weeks Lindsay Lohan was in the cross-fire over her teeth…

Well, looking at her photos made at the premiere of THQ’s Saints Row: The Third, I must say: time is ticking away fast. Or is it really just her teeth making her look a lot older?

The press and the public just could not get over the state of her teeth. Well, to me it is always disappointing to see damaged teeth. Especially, coming from the “rich and famous”, however her agent comments left many wondering if she actually had the funds for a smile makeover…. I thought, in this case she could always fly to Hungary to use a low cost but high quality dental surgery. Actually, we did come across few patients in the past, which travelled to Hungary for ultra thin veneers in secret, only to tell friends and family they went to Los Angeles to see a celebrity dentist….

Well, with Lindsay apparently refusing to pay her $90,000 limousine bill (reports on TMZ last week), she might should consider a quick fix dental trip to Budapest.

Lindsay Lohan’s Gone Full Hooker, Lindsay Lohan’s Teeth Are Rotting Away”, “Lindsay Lohan Needs a Toothbrush 

 

Headlines must have made her realise how important a great smile was, as a week later she turned up with a lot brighter shade of teeth…

I only hope, the bright smile is not just on the surface.
