Tooth Jewellery

In recent years, the trend of adorning teeth with gems or jewels has gained popularity among people seeking to express their unique style and personality. While tooth gems can add a touch of sparkle to one’s smile, it’s essential to understand the potential risks and considerations associated with this dental trend.

Tooth jewellery or gems are small decorative ornaments, typically made of crystals or gold, that are attached to the surface of a tooth using dental adhesive. They come in various shapes, sizes, and colours, allowing you to customise your smile. 

One of the primary concerns regarding tooth gems is their safety and potential impact on dental health. When applied correctly by a qualified dental professional, tooth gems are generally considered safe. As improper placement or use of low-quality materials can pose risks such as tooth damage, enamel erosion, and increased plaque accumulation. At Renew Dental Lounge, we are experienced in cosmetic dental procedures to ensure safe and appropriate placement of tooth gems.

The application process for tooth gems is very simple and requires no drilling into the tooth surface. The surface of the tooth where the gem will be applied is cleaned to ensure proper adhesion. A dental adhesive specifically designed for oral use is applied to the back of the tooth gem and it is carefully positioned on the tooth surface according to the desired aesthetic effect. The adhesive is cured using a special light to ensure secure attachment of the tooth gem to the tooth surface.

Proper maintenance is essential to ensure the longevity of tooth gems and prevent potential complications, such as avoiding biting or chewing on hard objects that may dislodge or damage the tooth gem. Good oral hygiene habits, including regular brushing and flossing, to prevent plaque buildup around the tooth gem.Tooth gems can typically be removed by a dental professional using specialised tools and techniques without causing damage to the underlying tooth structure.
