A WOMAN has revealed that she travelled all the way from Australia to Turkey for a set of new teeth.
Beauty fan Vanessa Knight explained that she spent £4,390 on a set of veneers and took to social media to open up on her dental journey.
She is just one of many who have jetted to Turkey to get their teeth done, in a trend that has been dubbed “Turkey teeth”.
The TikTok hashtag “#TurkeyTeeth” has reached more than 130 million views.
Several reality TV influencers and celebrities have also had crowns done, including former Love Island star Jack Fincham and Katie Price.
The procedure of having veneers done can be aggressive and invasive – as they require almost 70% of your teeth to be filed down.
Posting on the video sharing platform, the Australian woman explained that the veneers set her back $8,000 [Australian dollars, the equivalent of £4,390].
Vanessa posted a clip, in response to a comment that read “didn’t need veneers.”
She shared a variety of pictures of her smile, prior to the dental procedure, before then sharing a video of her smiling, proudly displaying her brand new white smile.
Vanessa revealed that she didn’t like her teeth prior to the procedure but was over the moon with her new teeth.
