A WOMAN has shared her Turkish teeth transformation – but people have warned her it’s only a short-term fix.
You may notice that more and more Brits are traveling abroad to have their smile corrected in Turkey, as the cosmetic procedures are typically half the price of the UK.
Among those who boarded a plane to get the phenomenon now dubbed “turkey teeth” was Kylie, a mom of three, who shared her journey on TikTok.
According to Kylie, who is “dying” to tell everyone about the experience, her pre-Turkey gnashers were “pretty crooked.”
Dissatisfied with her looks and “too impatient” to use Invisalign to even out her pearly whites, the mother made the decision to take to the sea.
There, she explained in a short video, Kylie paid a whopping £5,600 for the new smile, which will need to be replaced in 10 to 15 years.
The mother of pearl received at the Antalya clinic cost £3,600 and the hotel where she stayed for a week cost her £2,000.
But while she loved the results, the journey wasn’t easy — after her natural teeth were filled down to small posts, experts fitted Kylie with temporary teeth.
The mum shared a picture of herself lying in a bed and recalled being “completely stunned”.
”The temperature [temporary] Teeth are plastic version of your own teeth and [are] Pretty uncomfortable.”
Luckily, Kylie didn’t feel any pain in her mouth the next day after the preparation, although her face was still swollen.
Since getting her crooked teeth fixed, the mother has said she’s finally living “her best” life.

“I’m super happy with them and have had literally no issues — no sensitivity or anything.”
Although she was aware the pearly white needed replacing, the mom was “so happy” she did.
”No regrets at all!”
But while many, like Kylie, loved the final look, there were also many who pointed out that it was only a short-term fix.
“They look great, but these fixes are rarely effective in the long run. I hope yours are the exception,” one person wrote.
Another commented, “I think they’re a short-term fad but they look amazing.”
Another wrote: “My inner dental hygienist is crying.”
“Why are people still doing this? Amazing,” wondered a fourth.
