The Truth About Tooth Gems

The Truth About Tooth GemsThe truth about tooth gems is rarely discussed. Mainly due to the fact that people like the aesthetic but are not aware of the downsides to the treatment. Evidence of tooth jewellery can be seen as far back as the ancient Egyptians, but in more recent times the trend was particularly popular in the nineties. However, it has recently made a comeback with celebs like Kendall Jenner, Ariana Grande, and Drake sporting gemmed teeth on their social media pages. This has thrust the adornment back into the public eye.

The Truth About Tooth Gems

As fashionable as the procedure might be there are some major concerns with the practice. Take a look at some of the negative aspects of this popular trend:

  1. When tooth gems are adhered by professionals they are much less likely to cause damage to the teeth. However, going to cheaper outlets or ordering DIY kits to do at home can have disastrous consequences for your teeth. In general, you get what you pay for with this type of treatment.
  2. Tooth gems can cause damage to the teeth, such as chips and calcification (white deposits in the teeth).
  3. Cheap glues and dental cement can damage the enamel of the teeth.
  4. They make it harder to clean your teeth. Debris and food can become stuck around the gem causing tooth decay and cavities to develop.
  5. Not only can they be detrimental to teeth but they can also cause extended damage to the mouth as a whole. If the glue seeps onto soft tissues in the mouth it could cause chemical burns, sores, and much more. They are also not good for your gums as they can cause inflammation and infection.
