Tooth Jewelry

When you want to Accessorize Your Best Accessory or just add a little shine to your smile, your team at Credit River Dental Centre can definitely help you give your smile that extra sparkle.

Whether you want just a touch of sparkle or the brightness of a diamond paired with 22K yellow gold or 18K white gold, your Port Credit Dentist at Credit River Dental Centre can give you options you may not have even thought of.  Since the tooth gems are made of 18K white gold, 22K yellow gold or lead-free Swarovski crystals, allergic reactions are rare and they will maintain their brillance and shine as long as they are cared for well.

The Tooth Gems we have available are as follows:

  • Lead-free Swarovski Crystals in various colors and sizes

  • 18K white gold and 22K yellow gold designs

  • 18K white gold and 22K yellow gold designs with a 0.01ct diamond

  •  Zodiac signs in both 18K white gold and 22K yellow gold

  • Letters and Numbers in both 18K white gold and 22K yellow gold

The Procedure

Accessorizing Your Best Accessory with Tooth gems is a painless, simple procedure lasting only about 10 to 20 minutes in length depending on the number of stones and design selected.  The tooth is prepared to ensure that the surface is clean for maximum adhesion.  A bonding agent and adhesive agent are then applied and cured with a light.  The light used for curing the adhesive material is the same light utilized for curing of the filling materials used in the field of dentistry.

Note :  Our office uses high quality adhesive resin to ensure the longevity of your new tooth jewel.

Aftercare

Caring for your tooth jewelry is simple.  As recommended by our dental team at Credit River Dental Centre, it is important to brush at least 2x daily and clean in between the teeth on a daily basis.  Cleaning around your tooth jewel will ensure that retentive foods don’t stick to the jewel trapping unwanted food debris.  There are no special instructions after the adhesive has been cured.   You can eat and drink as usual right after the procedure.

Removal

Since the tooth jewel has been professionally applied with a durable resin, it must be removed by your dental professional.  This procedure is also simple and painless.  We require approximately 10 to 15 minutes of time to remove the jewel and smooth out the surface of your tooth.
