Angela went above and beyond my expectations. She is very friendly and you can always feel at ease contacting her. She made sure I was comfortable with our choice of surgeon Dr. Can Karaca and set up a video call for me. Always ready to help and answer any questions (she would always be available despite the 7 hour time difference)! I wasn’t really sure about traveling to Istanbul, Turkey for my procedure until I met Angela and she explained everything from start to finish and stood behind her words to always be of assistance. Mind you I have been researching for months now for a good doctor and went back and forth between waiting 2 years to get my surgery done in Canada or even traveling to Mexico for it! I was thinking Turkey would be a difficult route due to time difference and the distance but I’m very happy I chose to go to Turkey with Flymedi and I’m glad my agent was Angela Sabou! Do not hesitate to work with Flymedi and especially request Angela if you can!!! - a very satisfied client

Adonis Fertility International Caring Professionals

After trying IVF unsuccessfully in the US for many years Maria from Adonis Fertility International gave me hope. I was very impressed by her work ethic and I trusted she would work hard at helping us become parents. Her communication was top-notch. I choose Adonis because of Maria and then worked with Amy, Nancy, and Ivanna and ALL were Amazing. Everything is broken down for you in steps and very organized. There was always someone there to answer a question you may. Its been a very smooth process, with all the legal documents and made transporting the biomaterial stress-free. We are still in our beginning stages and I will give another review at the end but everything so far has been excellent and I would recommend Adonis to any US couple looking to try IVF and hopefully become parents.

Excellent service

Excellent service. I was really hesitant at first, because I’ve never done anything like this before, but Kirstie did a great job of answering all my questions & concerns, in a timely manner. I would highly recommend using this service.

At the beginning, I was very hesitant about having my surgeries, especially the idea of having them in Turkey, which is a country located across the ocean of where I come from, the United States of America. When I initially started my research, I came across Flymedi, and I strongly believe that connecting with them was the best decision I have made in regards of having my desired surgeries. After entering my contact information, I was contacted from Flymedi by an agent named Abud. On one hand, Abud has been a great assist and support to my journey, as he was involved in every step throughout the process. He was very responsive to all my concerns and inquiries before and after the operations. On the other hand, everyone at the clinic that I was referred to (EstEthica) was very nice and welcoming. The in-person consultant on site (Lamia) was extremely helpful and kind. She, along with the whole clinic staff, made me feel so comfortable and made the whole trip seem as smooth as possible, despite the discomfort after the surgeries. In terms of the results, I can not speak of this just yet as it has only been a week since I have had my operations. However, I will definitely come back within a couple of months to update my review and speak about the results and any other additional notes along the way. In a nutshell, all I can say that I am grateful for everything so far, and I truly appreciate everyone that was involved in this process! P.S. as a word of advice, if you are having a hair transplant operation, I highly recommend having it at least 3 - 4 days before your departure flight back home, as the post operation instructions are a bit intense and not being in a rush would significantly help with the recovery process.

Overview

Porcelain crowns are a very popular dental treatment used for both cosmetic and health reasons. A crown is a type of dental reconstruction used to treat the teeth for problems like: chips, cracks, decay or cavities. Dental crowns are highly adaptable solutions that can offer a natural look and protect the already severely damaged teeth from decay. Through this restorative and cosmetic procedure, the dentist can help you obtain a beautiful confident smile.

Preparation

Before going to their first dentist appointment, patients should prepare their dental records and a list of questions they may have for the dentist. Also it is recommended to have a clear image of their expectations and check with the dentist if they are attainable. An important aspect of preparation for dental crowns is to get informed about the costs of the procedure and to choose the type of treatment that is affordable for you.

Advantages, Disadvantages & Alternatives

Porcelain crowns are one of the most common types of dental restorations available for patients today, after tooth fillings. This solution is perfect for patients with decayed, damaged or darkened teeth, as crowns can be placed on virtually any tooth with a healthy root. The crowns themselves can be manufactured from a wide variety of materials but nowadays porcelain is the norm since it’s capable of offering great results in terms of survivability, strength and aesthetics. That being said, porcelain crowns may not be the best option for every patient – your dentist will put forward an alternative if that’s the case. Let’s take a look at a few porcelain crowns advantages, disadvantages and alternatives.

Advantages

  • Porcelain crowns are perhaps one of the most aesthetic solutions patients can opt for. The crowns themselves can be produced to match your existing teeth perfectly in terms of shape, size, colouring and translucence. Thus, the crown will be indistinguishable from your natural teeth, resulting in a natural looking smile.
  • Porcelain crowns can be fused to a metal cap for extra strength and durability, making them last much longer than traditional full-porcelain crowns.
  • All-porcelain crowns don’t have any dark lines or spots at the bottom, as is the case with porcelain fused to metal crowns, making them look much better.
  • Porcelain Fused to Metal crowns fit much better than all-porcelain crowns, ensuring better durability.
  • Porcelain crowns are biocompatible, meaning that there is no risk of allergic reactions to the materials or irritated gums.
  • Porcelain fused to metal crowns are a bit more affordable than all-porcelain crowns.

Disadvantages

  • All-porcelain crowns don’t have a lot of disadvantages, but they are worth mentioning none the less. The biggest disadvantage of porcelain fused to metal crowns is that the metal part can be seen through the porcelain, appearing like a dark line at the base of the tooth.
  • All-porcelain crowns offer less strength and durability compared to porcelain fused to metal crowns. They are also statistically more prone to chipping or cracks, especially for patients engaging in sports or eating hard foods.
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns require more material to be removed from the tooth before placement.
  • Porcelain crowns are more likely to cause sensitivity to very cold or hot foods.
  • All porcelain crowns are somewhat more expensive than other types of crowns.

Alternatives

Full Metal Crowns – these crowns require less material to be removed from the patient’s tooth before placement. They are also very strong and able to withstand lots of pressure, making them perfect for patients suffering from bruxism. Full metal crowns are also more affordable than other variants.

Zirconia Dental Crowns – zirconia crowns are white and translucent, making them very aesthetically pleasing and offering a natural looking smile. These crowns are perfect for the visible teeth, such as the front teeth.

Porcelain Fused to Metal – these crowns look natural but due to their metal substructure are not recommended for the front teeth for example.
