Katie Price shows off bloody teeth during dental work
Katie Price likely has “no tooth tissue remaining” after years of dental work, according to a dental expert.
After years of surgery around the globe, the former glamour model has caused irreversible damage to her signature pearly whites.
The mum-of-five’s Turkey Teeth might look shiny from the outside, but an award-winning dental expert has told The Mirror they could cause long-lasting complications.
Her dental work has been well-documented and the reality TV star once famously invited the cameras into the operating room.
The 44-year-old gave fans a gruesome look into her mouth after surgeons filed down her teeth to pegs (again) for another set of crowns.

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped ‘cap’ placed over a tooth, covering it to “restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance”.
Pricey has had a combination of crowns and veneers during her lifetime – the latter being a less invasive option.
“Several re-dos of veneers and now crowns over the years would have left [Katie] with little or no tooth tissue remaining,” Dr Nilesh R. Parmar told The Mirror.
The award-winning dental implant surgeon added: “Remember each time veneers or crowns are re-done we have to remove more tooth tissue. As this gets closer and closer to the nerve, these teeth can need root canal work further reducing their lifespan.”
Dr Parmar says most patients who have had “aggressive crowns or veneers” are often left needing titanium dental implants screwed into their jaw bones.

“As with all treatments there are repercussions, the main issue is fracturing and breaking of the fragile tooth tissue left beneath these crowns,” he told us. “Once these break then the options become somewhat more invasive such as dental implants.
“These are where titanium screws are placed into the jaw bones with teeth inserted into them.
“These also have a shelf life and may become inevitable for patients who have had invasive dental treatment such as aggressive crowns or veneers.”
It comes amid a ‘Turkey Teeth’ trend across social media, with some sharing their horror stories of surgeries gone wrong over the years.
If these invasive and irreversible operations do go wrong they can leave you heavily out of pocket – costing thousands to fix the mistakes.

Speaking of people flying abroad for Turkey Teeth, Dr Parmar said: “Simply put. Don’t it!
“There is no quick fix when it comes to teeth, and these treatments need to be planned carefully with plenty of long-term maintenance.
“If the work is carried out abroad, many dentists in the UK will not entertain reparative treatment due to the added liability and quite frankly, the headache of fixing this kind of work.
“Speak to your regular dentist and if they are not able to provide you the cosmetic treatment you are after, they will recommend you to someone whom they trust who can meet your expectations.”
