Frequency Asked Questions
We give 100% transparency when it comes to our tooth gems. Below are some questions we get asked regularly, but if you feel we didn’t answer, send us a message and we'll get back to you!
How Does it Work?
The process is the same as braces, we clean the tooth, protect the enamel, and then using adhesive, we apply the crystal or gold piece of your choice. The tooth gem process is very similar to the process of placing orthodontic braces. The same dental materials are used, and a dental curing light is used to set the final design in place. The whole process only takes about 15 minutes for a simple design.
Does it Hurt?
Zero pain! There are no drills, no holes, no pain & no problem!
What type of glue do you use?
The adhesive used is dental grade, the same used to put your train track braces on, it completely safe!
How old do you have to be?
You must be over the age of 18 to have the treatment done, or 16 and under with a present guardian's consent, this must be a parent or legal guardian. They must also both have a photographic ID with the same surname or proof of legal guardianship such as a copy of a birth certificate.
How Long Does it Last?
Everyone is different. We like to recommend anywhere from a couple of months to a couple of years (however we find them last much longer than that) as long as you’re looking after your new shiny baby!
Is it Reversible?
Totally, we understand you like to change up your style. Simply go to your local dentist or hygienist for safe removal. Just ask for a scale and polish, this painless treatment will clean your tooth and it’ll be like nothing was ever there.
I Have Veneers, Can I Still Get One?
Unfortunately, tooth gems won’t stay very long term on veneers or false teeth, if for example, you have veneer’s on your front teeth, but not the others, we can apply them onto your natural teeth.
What Products Are Used?
We use the best dental products on the market, genuine lead-free Swarovski crystals, Preciosa crystals and 18- 22k gold!
Do men get tooth gems?
Absolutely! Plenty of men including Drake Odell Beckham have rocked tooth gems! You can too!
What If I Lose My Tooth Gem? Will I Swallow It?
In all honesty, maybe! But don’t stress, all the products we use are totally safe to be in your mouth, if you lose a gem, it’ll just come out the other side, if you have any product left on your tooth, you can have this removed super easily and quickly with a scale and polish at your local dentist or hygienist.
What about brushing my teeth?
Keep up with your regular oral hygiene, brush at least twice daily, floss and visit your hygienist like usual! Tooth gems won't affect your ability to brush your teeth as your tooth is painted with a protective-barrier to protect the enamel and prevent plaque build-up. Just like braces being on for years without a problem, your gem will be the same.
Keep up with your regular oral hygiene, brush at least twice a day, floss
We recommend using a dense soft bristle toothbrush to ensure the plastic prongs of hard brushes don’t cause trauma to the tooth gem.
Can I get my teeth cleaned by my dentist/hygienist?
Yes! You can, and should, continue to have your teeth cared for by a professional. Your hygienist can easily clean and polish your teeth and gems without removing them.
Can I use my electric toothbrush?
Yes! Just make sure you’re only applying gentle pressure and using a soft-bristled toothbrush.
What if I don’t know exactly which gems I want?
No problem! During your appointment, you’ll be able to see our entire jewelry line in person. We’ll come up with a design together that best suits your unique style and dental anatomy.
