A man who had the so-called 'Turkey teeth' procedure was left unable to talk and eat properly as a result. He opens up about his horrifying ordeal below:
The trend of 'Turkey teeth' has been growing fast in recent years as a result of growing trends on social media and video platform apps such as TikTok.
You will often see nowadays some of the biggest TikTok creators boasting bright smiles, with many of those procedures done in Turkey - hence the name.
The reason why so many go to countries such as Turkey for the procedure is the decent price compared to the UK.
The procedure involves filing someone's natural tooth down and putting crowns or veneers on top.
After receiving 'Turkey teeth', the teeth are usually white, and will also be perfectly square in shape.
However, one man has now warned others of the dangers of it.
Back in August, Danny Bennett posted to TikTok a heartbreaking video where he showed the damaging impact the 'Turkey teeth' procedure did to him.
In this video, his teeth drop out just as he begins talking despite having work done in Birmingham that hadn't worked.
Overlaying the video, he wrote: "I've literally been living my worst nightmare for the last five months.
"I'm low, miserable and mentally drained from this journey."
Bennett went on to explain that it had been going on for four to five months, with no dentist able to help him out.
He then issued a public plea for help, saying: "If you can help or know someone can help, please get in touch.
"I feel like this is my last chance to get help, please share, like, tag... in hope someone can see this video who can help."
He ended the video by saying: "I can't live like this anymore; I can't do it."
But thankfully, Bennett was able to find someone that could help fix his teeth and help get his life back on track.
He recently reuploaded the clip to his TikTok account, adding: "Do you remember this video? I had such amazing people reach out to me."
Bennett revealed that he is now being treated by Harley Dental Sheffield, and in particular dentist TikTok star Dr Azizi, who works at the practice.
The new clip concludes with Bennett receiving dental treatment at the practice, which is great to see.
