What is a tooth gem?
A tooth gem is a small jewel that is attached to the surface of a tooth with safe bonding adhesive. The gems come in different sizes and colors, and are typically placed in the center of one of the top front teeth.
Will the tooth gem damage my tooth?
Tooth gems are a cosmetic dental procedure that leave minimal to no damage to the existing tooth. It is bonded to the tooth similar to an orthodontic bracket. As always, oral hygiene (brushing and flossing) must be maintained to keep the tooth healthy.
How long will the tooth gem last?
Longevity of tooth gems depends on multiple factors such as diet, oral hygiene, tooth shape, and the type of gem placed. Tooth gems can last anywhere from 1 year to 5+ years. When you are ready to remove the gem, it can be easily taken off by a dental professional.
