What is Tooth Jewellery?
Tooth jewellery is an accessory which is placed on the front portion of your tooth. This style craze lets you express your individuality through your smile, making it more unique and fashionable. There are many different jewellery designs to choose from, and you can take your pick depending on your mood, or what you wish to express with your smile.
While clear braces are rising in popularity in the west, there is also a rising trend in tooth jewels. A small gem or precious metal charm can be adhered to a tooth and it can either be there temporarily or can last as long as you want it to. One of the pluses of having them applied with dental bonding material is that they don’t cause any permanent damage to your teeth. It is 100 % reversible. You can have your birth stone, your favourite colour, or a charm that represents a hobby or element of your personality.
How long will the tooth jewel last?
A Tooth jewel applied according to our instructions on a natural tooth will stay on until you decide to have it removed again. Based on our experience it will certainly stay on for 6 months up to a few years.
Can I feel the jewel on my tooth?
Jewels are only 0.4 mm or 0.9 mm thick and 1.8 mm to 3 mm in diameter. Initially something on your tooth will feel different, but a few days after the application you will get used to the new feeling.
Does the jewel impede brushing?
No, the presence of the gem will not make any difference regarding dental hygiene. However, it is recommended not to use an electric toothbrush for the first 24 hours after the jewel has been attached.
What if the jewel falls off and I swallow it?
The jewels are tiny acrylic or glass crystals or gold. They have no sharp edges. It will basically come out "the natural way" the same as it went inside your body.
Can I still have my teeth cleaned by my dentist/hygienist?
Yes, you can and should still have your teeth cleaned by a professional. Jewellery will not cause a problem for the hygienist cleaning your teeth. The area underneath the jewel is sealed like a filling and will not let in any bacteria. The hygienist can easily polish on top and around the jewel with a soft point.
