FAQ

Although many people may have considered dental treatment abroad, they often have many doubts. Therefore, we have prepared a list based on the most common questions that we have been asked. If these do not provide the answer you have been looking for, please feel free to contact us.

Why is Dental Treatment in Poland Less Expensive as Compared Other European Countries?

Dental treatment in Poland, including flight and accommodation expenses, costs around 50% of the same dental treatment only in western European countries.

The reason for this is the fact that, in comparison to western Europe, business running costs in Poland are much lower. Additionally, Polish citizens earn less than other EU citizens and consequently services in Poland are generally cheaper. Nevertheless, quality and techniques are the same as in any other EU country. This is required of Poland since it joined the EU and the Polish Chamber of Physicians and Dentists became a member of the Council of European Dentists (CED).

Consequently, the total cost of dental treatment in Poland (incl. travel & accommodation) is 50-70% lower than the cost of the same treatment offered in western European countries.

How Long does the Dental Treatment Take?

It depends on the dental treatment you need. We propose that you stay for 5 nights / 6 days because most dental procedures can be carried out within the timeframe. If your stay is shorter, our dentists will do their best to get the required dental work done in the available time.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are an artificial tooth root (screw) that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth.

They are suitable for:

  • Replacing a missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth
  • Supporting a dental bridge and removing the need for partial dentures.
  • Providing support for dentures

How Long does Implant Treatment Take?

In case of dental implants, which require a bonding period (osseointegration) of 3 to 6 months between implant placement and the fitting of the abutment and crown/ bridge/ denture, two dental trips are necessary.

Am I a Suitable Candidate for Dental Implants?

Dental implants are suitable for patients of any age, assuming they have fully developed jawbones. Having sufficient bone tissue of a high enough quality is one of the determining factors in whether you are a suitable dental implant candidate. Assuming you are a healthy individual with good oral hygiene habits, you will be suitable for dental implant treatment.

What is the Best Way to Fix the Gaps in My Smile?

There is no one single way to fix gaps in one’s smile, however we usually recommend either porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers or a combination of both.

What are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over your tooth or dental implant. They help restore your tooth’s shape, size, strength and appearance. They are useful to protect a weak tooth, restore broken teeth, cover a large filling, hold a dental bridge in place, covered misshapen or discolored teeth and to cover a dental implant.

What are Dental Veneers?

Porcelain veneers, also known as dental veneers, are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of the teeth to enhance their appearance. Porcelain veneers are used both to make dark or stained teeth look whiter and sometimes to improve a patient’s bite. They are useful to correct uneven or crooked teeth, fix teeth that are out of proportion and enhance tetracycline stained teeth or yellow teeth.

    Treatment: Crowns
    Patient review:

    In the spring of 2022, I had comprehensive prosthetic work carried out at Smile clinic in Poland. 22 dental crowns and bite adjustment. The clinic is very aware of quality, thus several examinations Was done to get the best result. 22 dental crowns is a lot and I was a little nervous about such big changes. Now 3 months after the changes, I can only state that I have no discomfort or pain. My smile is so beautiful that other people praise my beautiful teeth. They can't tell the difference between dental crowns and it's really nice. My bite is correct and I can eat everything without problems. I can confidently recommend the clinic to anyone who wants or needs dental help. The most professional dental work I have ever witnessed.

    Treatment: Implants and crowns
    Patient review:

    I had my first treatment at the clinic about eight years ago at the age of 58. For many years I had several problems with my teeth. There were old bridges that were broken with inflammation, general tooth decay etc. I will give my best recommendation to Project Smile Dental Clinic. I could never get better dental treatment. It`s now almost nine years since I got my implants and I had no problem at all in all this years. The clinic is complete reliable and everything is transparent. You get all the information that you need about both treatment and prices. They take care of everything and the people you meet you can really trust. They even have a driver who can meet at your hotel and drive you to the clinic, and also meet you at he airport if you want. If you want to take contact with me for more information you can contact me directly. Patryk Baker at the clinic can give you my mail address and phone number.

    Patient review:

    I spent 5 yrs looking around europe for the right clinic, eventually found project smile in Gdansk. My patience proved to be the right ting to do. Now that mt treatment has finished I look back and am so grateful to the clinic for the quality of treatment and care taken including from the point of being collected from the airport by Peter (taxi driver) who I know look at as a friend. In summary going forward project smile is now my primmary dentist

    Treatment: Whole mouth crowns and implants
    Patient review:

    My experience was amazing. Dental professionals who truly care. I originally asked for a quote based on a US based team. The dental surgeon from Poland called and explained to why that was not the healthiest solution in the long-term! I ended up with fewer implants because they saved more of my original teeth. When it was all done, my neighbor said I looked ten years younger, my sister said I had such a beautiful smile, they hadn't seen it in such a long time. I do smile all the time now. The dentists in Poland were always checking to ensure I was not in pain. I never was. I have never been to a dentist as gentle and caring as Project Smile's. My brother in-law needed an implant. I told him to call Project Smile and take a vacation. The cost would be about the same.

    Treatment: Zirconium crowns, bite correction, flow injection
    Patient review:

    After noticing my teeth quickly degrading and fillings frequently breaking I decided to look at other options as I felt the NHS dentist I had attended for years paid lip service and did not identify the root cause of my issues. After ruling out private treatment in the UK as too expensive I looked at Poland and settled on practices in Gdansk. Following a number of consultations with different dentists in Poland I was most impressed with Project Smile for the professionalism of the initial consultation, the clarity of the explanation given and the bespoke and competitive treatment plan. I scheduled a number of appointments in advance for ease of booking accommodation and returned to start my treatment. I had my old fillings removed, new fillings fitted, a kois deprogrammer fitted to correct my bite, my teeth thoroughly deep-cleaned, flow injection on my lower jaw and zirconium crowns on every tooth in my top jaw. The results are magnificent. I am absolutely delighted with them. I found the skill and professionalism of the dentists to be outstanding, as well as their patience in answering questions and providing clear explanations. The reception staff respond very promptly to enquiries and the practice is very clean and modern, greatly in excess of UK standards. Highly recommended.

    Treatment: Implants, crowns
    Patient review:

    I cannot recommend Project Smile highly enough. I had implants and crowns put in and the result is fantastic. I was treated over a period of time due to the covid restrictions and also for the implants. Each time I was there, everything was explained to me and also the different options for my teeth that I could have chosen. The majority of the work was carried out by Dr Paulina and she took brilliant care with the treatment. I would also like to thank all other Doctors and staff that looked after me and made my treatment at Project smile a great experience.

    Treatment: All on four implants and dentures
    Patient review:

    I just finished my treatment with Project Smile Clinic in Gdansk a week ago and I am so so pleased with the results. The entire process over 3 visits was totally pain free. My first visit was in September 2020, and I was due to go back in January 2021 but due to lockdowns in Ireland I didn't get back until August 2021, with the final visit in September 2021 3/4 weeks later. Everything was stress free, we were collected at the airport and a taxi arranged to take me to appointments. My sister and brother have also been having treatment here and both are really happy with the excellent quality of the work. I would highly recommend this to anyone as the prices are only a fraction of what I would have paid in Ireland for implants. Gdansk is a beautiful city also helping in the process.

    Treatment: Replacement Veneers
    Patient review:

    I recently spent a week in Gdansk for 5 days of treatment at the clinic. I had been planning the visit for a couple of years but due to COVID it was slightly delayed. From Patryk at the very beginning of the process to the dentists that performed the work on me I could not be happier. I had 6 veneers replaced , gum surgery and teeth whitening. The result is fantastic. A big shout out to Peter the taxi driver too who picked me up from the airport on arrival and took me to and from the apartment to the dentist daily. He was a star. Once again thank you and I may see you in the future!
