A man has revealed how he spent 15 hours in the dentist chair in Turkey trying to perfect his teeth only to end up looking temporarily like Donkey from Shrek.
The person, believed to be from Yorkshire, is one of the many Brits travelling to the country for cosmetic procedures.
Dubbed ‘Tukey Teeth’, the new cosmetic fad involves travelling abroad to get drastic cut-price treatment.
It has been made popular by stars like Katie Price and Love Island’s Jack Fincham, and involves filing down teeth to pegs then replacing them with crowns or veneers.
Going by the TikTok name beeman920, the man revealed how he flew to Turkey for a new set of pearly white teeth, and showed off his temporary look while he awaited more treatment.

However, ‘beeman920’ was adamant: ‘Gonna be worth it in the end!’
He returned home at 20 minutes to one in the morning and said that he would be returning to the dentist later that day
Until his return to the dentist he was given a set of temporary large, bright pearly whites, making him look like Donkey from Shrek.
In the viral video, he said: ‘Or the house, for those of you that are older.’ He explained: ‘I had half broken teeth, I had teeth with holes in, I had fillings, I had fake teeth in the front already.
‘This is something I’ve wanted for years […]. That’s my choice – I’m not bothered about how I will look.’
