Tooth Gems

Beauty is a category that humans have always been looking for. In the distant past, women used diamonds that were placed in their teeth for size and beauty, and today this issue has taken a new form and is of interest to women. Tooth gems, like all other jewelry, such as nose, ear, or nail jewelry, are placed on the teeth for beauty. In this article, we are going to examine this beauty method and dental gem implantation.

Types of tooth gems

Gems have different shapes. Some gems are crystal (white or colored). Such gems have a smooth surface below, which is attached to the surface of the tooth by special adhesives. Other types of gems are gold samples that are shaped into different shapes that are chosen according to personal taste. Some of them are gems with gold, in which there is a crystal gem in the middle of a special form of gold.

Gem tooth implantation

What should be known about gems is that a gem is a decorative item and its shelf life is limited, so it is better to use only special adhesives to stick it. Adhesion of gem does not require anesthetic injection. To stick, the surface of the tooth is first cleaned and without damaging the tooth, it is placed on the surface of the tooth with special adhesive materials.

  Under no circumstances should the surface of the tooth be trimmed because of the gem, because this will cause damage to the tooth enamel, and if the gem falls, it will not look good and must be repaired with restorative materials. After attaching the gem, it takes a few hours to get used to it.

Taking care

The most important issue in keeping a gem is good oral and dental hygiene, because around the gem is a suitable place for bacteria to accumulate and cause decay. Since gold metal is compatible with teeth, gold gems are more durable than simple crystal gems. However, the gem can be removed at any time without damaging the tooth. The principle of placing a gem on a tooth is a matter of taste, but it should be noted that it should not be placed on a tooth that has decayed.

Which teeth?

Usually, the most common tooth on which a gem is placed is the lateral incisor. If the gem is separated from the surface of the tooth, it can be reattached.

Complications of Gem tooth implantation

Only if the Gem tooth implantation is done by a non-specialist, there is a possibility of complications for the teeth. Dentists in Toronto usually do their best to prevent future complications. Care after a dental implant is very important. If you don’t take care of your teeth, i.e. don’t brush your teeth, use dental floss, in other words, if you don’t observe oral and dental hygiene in principle, the possibility of tooth decay or infection increases greatly.
