Dental Jewelry

In Europe, the tooth jewelry fashion has existed for quite some time, but in the US, it’s a relatively novel conception that is slowly gaining momentum regarding the application. The most prevalent form of dental jewelry involves the covering of teeth with gold or silver caps. However, it is salient to note that there are different viable materials which perform the same aesthetic function.
Dental jewels are affixed to the teeth’s enamel, with the latter being slightly roughened to get a strong grip between a bonding agent and the two subjects. The procedure is simple and utterly pain-free. The choice on the jewel type determines whether the process will be expensive or cheap.
Besides material classification, tooth jewelry also entails a variety of configurations, designs, and colors. The figures may include crosses, stars, hearts, skulls, etc. Rubies, Amethyst, and emeralds are some of the most common stone typologies used in the domain.
Dentists have nevertheless expressed concern with the practice, detailing that attaching metal/crystalline implements could result in bacteria/plaque build-up on the teeth and gums.
