What is a tooth charm?
Tooth gems are tiny rhinestones or jewels that are pasted on teeth using a specific adhesive. Dental offices may offer tooth gems near you. They usually have a lifespan of about 6 months, but can sometimes last longer.
How much is a tooth gem cost?
Tooth gem costs can range from $31-$100+ USD for high-quality metals and crystals; this does not include the cost of going to a qualified clinic to have the jewels applied to your teeth.
How do tooth gems stay on?
When you put a tooth gem on, you are putting an adhesive on your tooth. This can cause the enamel to wear away and increase the likelihood of tooth decay. It also leads to discolorations on the affected teeth. Even worse, these tooth gems are designed to last anywhere from six months to a year.
