I am have gaps, chips and discolouring of my teeth and I want to get a “smile makeover”. I have undertaken extensive research, set a budget of £3k to £5k and have earmarked a couple of practices in London where I reside.
However, I have recently located from London to Hong Kong for six months for work. I note that the price of cosmetic surgery in countries such as Thailand and Philippines are significantly cheaper than in the UK (e.g. Veneers more like £250 rather than £800). I’m now debating on getting the treatment in Asia as it would allow me to get more work done rather than five or six teeth treated.
I do have a couple of concerns:
– how do I know if it is a well regarded dentist (there are a couple on your website- do you recommend them?);
– how can I guarantee that the dentist will not be using cheaper materials that will not last as long; and
– I understand that cosmetic dentistry can be problematic, even with a good dentist. Is it possible to get insurance in case I encounter problems back in the UK and need to spend further money with UK dentist.
Advice would be greatly appreciated.
