Tooth Gems

Oct 2 • 1 minute read

Tooth gems are small decorative accessories that attach to the surface of a tooth and have recently increased in popularity.  At times, those placing the gems are not aware of the damage they may cause orally.  It is important to consult with a dental professional prior to proceeding with a gem in order to understand the risks.  Some of these risks may include difficulty cleaning around the gem leading to tooth decay, swallowing the gem if dislodged, and harmful/unsafe oral adhesives being used.
