Q. You have mentioned many interesting things at Charmfidence HK launch event last time. It was very impressive to see how celebrities can look so different after orthodontics treatments.
One of the most common cosmetic surgeries for Korean celebrities is two jaw surgery and facial contour surgery, which changes the shape of the face fundamentally by shaping the bones.
However, in the case of orthodontics, the entire face shape can be changed by altering part of the face below the nose without touching bones. Particularly, those who have protruded mouths could make a negative impression. In this case, extractions of teeth for braces can be helpful to make the impression look neat and refined.
For example, you can consider orthodontics if you want to correct further on protruded mouth even after two jaw surgery or without surgery to change the overall impression.
Laminate and zirconia also have the advantage to make the teeth neat easily in a relatively short time. Tooth whitening is used to restore yellowish discoloured teeth to their original color.
Q. The prices of treatments are expensive in foreign countries, how is the price for dentistry in Korea, and is it competitive for foreign patients?
A. In general, teeth whitening is about 150k ~ 200k KRW per time in Korea, about 5M~ 6M KRW for braces and about 40K~ 70K KRW per crown. Depending on various cases, the amount of treatment varies depending on the clinic.
