In recent years, Turkey has become a hotspot for those seeking more affordable cosmetic procedures.
While most patients return unscathed, some end up needing follow-up care due to avoidable complications from going under the knife abroad.
Last summer, it was revealed that a had left thousands of Britons facing painful complications.
The latest cosmetic fad, made popular by stars like Katie Price and Love Island’s Jack Fincham, involves filing down teeth to pegs then replacing them with crowns or veneers.
The procedure, which leaves patients with a Hollywood smile, is being fuelled on social media under the hashtag #Turkeyteeth which has been viewed more than 100million times.
But a new BBC documentary has looked at the fallout, asking whether the risks really outweigh the savings on having cheaper treatment, with UK dentists warning the complications can leave patients with huge medical bills to fix shoddy work.
A number of dentists surveyed on behalf of the BBC said some of the remedial work was provided by the NHS.
Meanwhile one private clinic has urged patients to be certain they know what they are getting after being contacted by clients who had been sold veneers but given the much more aggressive option of crowns.
The Harley Street Smile Clinic in London said they had been inundated by young people suffering from severe infections, intense long lasting pain, infected gums or rotting teeth due to the procedure.
Breast augmentation, where implants are inserted to increase the size of boobs, can cost £3,000 in Turkey, whereas going under the knife in a British clinic can be nearly double the price.
