PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The demand for a perfect smile continues to rise in the UK, with brits seeking cheaper dental cosmetic procedures overseas in Turkey. Despite repeated warnings from the UK Government, the controversial Turkey teeth trend continues to gain popularity. While there are legitimate, accredited medical companies which provide care and proper treatment, the Foreign Office has warned of 17 deaths over the last three years due to botched procedures. Attracted by the promise of a Hollywood smile on the cheap, the booming industry has seen a rise in 'underground establishments' cropping up online that appear to be legitimate, but are actually not approved by Turkish authorities.

This puts them at major risk for problems later in life, as these treatments are intended for older people with damaged teeth. Deals for dental treatment in Turkey often come complete with flights, accommodation and transfers included in the pearly white package.

Katie Price took pictures for social media while having dental work (Image: Birmingham Live) One of the highest profile cases saw Katie Price fly to Turkey, which saw her document the experience. After her first session, the former glamour model shared a snap of her filed down fangs. Weeks later, she showed off her all new set of Turkey teeth with glee. They are likely to have cost thousands of pounds more if the procedure was done in the UK.

On average, dental veneers and crowns only last between five to 15 years depending on their quality. Don't miss the latest news from around Scotland and beyond - Sign up to our daily newsletter here.
