Dental jewelry

“Dental jewelry” refers to the practice of attaching decorative items to the teeth to enhance one’s smile aesthetically. This trend adds sparkle and uniqueness to one’s appearance, making it a popular cosmetic choice for those looking to stand out or make a fashion statement. Dental jewelry should not be confused with dental restorations or modifications that have a medical or functional purpose; rather, it is purely decorative.

Types of Dental Jewelry

  • Tooth Gems: Small crystals, gems, or stones that are temporarily bonded to the tooth surface. These are usually placed on the front teeth, where they are most visible.
  • Grills or Grillz: Removable covers made of gold, silver, or jewel-encrusted precious metals that fit over the teeth. Grills can cover a single tooth, a row of teeth, or entire dental arches.
  • Dental Tattoos: Designs painted onto crowns or caps before they are placed over a tooth. These are permanent once the crown is installed but removable by replacing the crown itself.
  • Gold Foils: Thin layers of gold applied to teeth, either as a full covering or in specific designs. This is a less common practice and can be considered both a decorative and restorative technique.

Application Process

  • Tooth Gems: The application process for tooth gems does not typically require drilling or permanent alteration of the tooth structure. A dentist or trained technician will clean the tooth surface, apply an adhesive, and then place the gem. The adhesive used is similar to that used for orthodontic brackets, making this a temporary and reversible procedure. Tooth gems can last for a considerable time but can also be professionally removed without damage to the tooth.
  • Grills: Grills are custom-made to fit the individual’s teeth and are removable. The process involves taking an impression of the teeth, which is then used to create the grill. High-quality grills are made of precious metals and can be studded with diamonds or other gems.
  • Dental Tattoos: Since these are applied to crowns before they are placed, getting a dental tattoo involves the standard procedure for receiving a crown, including tooth preparation and impression taking. The design is added to the crown by the manufacturer before it is sealed and applied.
  • Gold Foils: The application of gold foils is a skilled process that involves preparing the tooth surface and applying the gold foil in layers. This technique is less common and is usually performed by specialists familiar with the material and process.

Considerations and Risks

  • Hygiene and Care: Dental jewelry requires proper oral hygiene to prevent plaque buildup around the decorative item, which could lead to tooth decay or gum irritation.
  • Professional Application and Removal: To minimize risks, dental jewelry should be applied and removed by professionals. Attempting to apply or remove dental jewelry at home can lead to dental damage.
  • Material Allergies: Before opting for dental jewelry, it’s important to ensure you’re not allergic to the materials used, especially metals.
Dental jewelry can be a fun and unique way to enhance one's smile, but it's important to consider the potential implications for oral health and to ensure that any procedures involved are carried out by dental professionals. As with any cosmetic dental procedure, discussing options with a dentist beforehand is advisable to ensure the health and safety of your teeth.
