Tooth Jewelry Now Available
Popularized by singers such as Pink, Tooth Jewelry is the latest in fashion accessories today. Tooth Jewels are glass crystals designed specifically for dental use. The crystals have a special coating on the back and their facet cut reflects the light and makes it sparkle like a diamond. Unlike earlier methods which involved drilling and setting the Jewel into the tooth, a little bit of dental composite material attaches the crystal onto the teeth (similar to braces) and lasts up to a year or longer.

How does the Jewel sparkle?
Our Crystal Teeth Jewels are glass crystals, made in Germany. Their flat back is surfaced with a special coating to create a sparkle and shine like a diamond.
How long will the tooth Jewel last?
A Tooth Jewel applied 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?
The Tooth Jewels are only 0.4mm or 0.9mm thick and 1.8mm to 3mm 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.
Will the Jewel harm my tooth?
No! The Jewel is bonded to the enamel like a orthodontic bracket (braces) or a filling to your front tooth, without any drilling or pain. The procedure and removal can be compared to the placement and removal of orthodontic brackets. When it is removed it it simply popped off and the tooth will be polished to remove any remaining bonding material.
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 tooth brush 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 glass crystals. 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. Teeth Jewelry 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.
Removing Tooth Jewelry
The jewel is removed the same way as an orthodontic bracket is and the enamel will not be harmed. After your dentist removes the gem, the tooth needs to be polished, which takes away any remaining bonding materials.
