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.

A young man has documented his dentistry journey on TikTok. The user beeman920 went to Turkey to get cosmetic treatment for his teeth

Documenting the dentistry work, the TikTok user posed in front of the camera with his temporary teeth after spending 15 and a half hours at the dentist.  

The appointment started at 9am and he hadn’t left the clinic until 20 minutes to one in the morning, the following day. 

In the video he shows his followers his temporary teeth, which are covering his own that have been shaved down, ready for the crown to be placed. 

In the clip, he said: ‘I had eight root canals, all my teeth shaved down… I don’t know, just everything.’

And despite his obvious exhaustion, the TikToker said he was determined and would return to the dentist the same day to have 18 more extractions.

The procedure, which is supposed to leave patients with a Hollywood smile, is being fuelled on social media under the hashtag #Turkeyteeth which has been viewed more than 100million times. 

For the most part influencers and celebrities praise the results and show them off on their Instagram feeds – but not everyone’s been so lucky.

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.’ 

However, not everyone

Anyone who has experience with the healthcare system in the United States (and plenty of people who don’t have experience with it) knows that going to the doctor can be expensive. Going to the dentist, in particular, is notoriously costly because it’s not typically covered under a regular health insurance plan. So after one TikToker, Delia O’Malley, was quoted over $3000 for a root canal in the United States, she came up with the brilliant idea of going to Turkey to get it done there instead. Below, you can hear Delia’s full story, and maybe it’ll inspire you to consider taking a holiday the next time you’re quoted with an exorbitant medical bill. And if you’re looking for another Bored Panda story about the American healthcare system after reading this piece, we’ve got another for you right here.

After this TikToker was quoted over $3000 for a root canal in the United States, she decided to book a trip to Turkey and get it done there instead

@asdeliadoes My dentist wanted $3099 for a root canal so I booked a week in Turkey to get it done here! Came to less than $1200. So I get a root canal and a holiday now 😂🇹🇷❤️ #turkey #lastminutetrip #manifestation #dental #kusidasi #graitude ♬ original sound – Delia O’Malley

While Delia’s trip was a creative solution for her medical needs, she’s not the only one who has had to think outside the box for treatment. In fact, “dental tourism” is a real phenomenon among people trying to avoid paying extremely high dental prices. According to Forbes, in 2020 approximately 290,000 Americans traveled abroad for dental and medical procedures. Mexico is one popular destination, due to proximity and the price of treatment. For example, root canals in Mexico cost 80% less than they do in the US. However, Americans aren’t the only ones seeking treatment abroad. Sometimes even Britons and Irish people take short trips to Eastern Europe or India for affordable procedures. Other common countries to visit for dental work include Thailand, Turkey, Costa Rica, the Philippines and Spain. 

Although medical tourism is gaining popularity, it can still be overwhelming to navigate alone. Knowing where to go and how to communicate with treatment providers when you don’t speak their language is daunting, but that’s where companies like Beyond Borders Dental come in. Beyond Borders Dental works specifically with Americans looking for affordable dental care in Mexico and provides them with the resources and support needed to find treatment. Their website says that patients typically save 50-75% on dental care, and in their cost breakdown for various treatments in Mexico, root canals are listed at only $250. “We’ve carefully selected the best dental offices in Mexico for our dental referral program,” their site states. “With Beyond
