My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Overview

Laser teeth whitening is a type of dentistry procedure used to improve the colour and look of teeth, with instant results. Laser teeth whitening procedures have several advantages over traditional teeth whitening procedures, including the fact that they are less intrusive and offer better results with less discomfort for the patient. Patients love laser teeth whitening procedures because they can dramatically improve the look of their smile and boost their confidence with a short trip to the dentist.

Preparation

Patients who want to opt for this procedure are required to have a dental checkup beforehand in order to see if laser teeth whitening is the right solution for them. The dentist may advise other treatments before undergoing this procedure. It’s also important to clarify what results can be achieved and how many sessions will be required – some patients may require multiple sessions before achieving their goal. Patients with other dental issues such as cavities will be required to treat these first before undergoing laser teeth whitening.

How It Is Performed

Laser teeth whitening starts with the isolation of gums and lips (for protection reasons) followed by the application of a special gel on the surface of teeth. The professional gel will be activated with the laser’s light, giving a whitening effect. The laser technology allows the dentist to be very precise and save the bone structure of the teeth. The operation is pain free and it lasts around 60 minutes. If during the operation the teeth become too sensitive, the process can be continued in another session. At the end of the procedure, the patients will be able to see the effects immediately. 

Recovery

There is no recovery period associated with laser teeth whitening. The patients can go back to their routine activities immediately after the procedure is done. 

Risks

A laser teeth whitening is a safe and painless procedure but it can have some minor risks: 


  • Teeth sensitivity 
    Gums irritation or sensitivity 
    Touch-up sessions 

Side Effects

Laser teeth whitening can have some secondary effects but they will subside in a couple of days: 


  • Teeth sensitivity
