Post Care Instruction

  • For the first hour:
    • Do not eat or chew gum.
  • For the first 12 hours:
    • Do not brush your teeth.
    • Avoid hard, crunchy, or crispy foods.
  • For the first 24 hours:
    • Do not play with it with your tongue or fingers.
    • Avoid extremes in temperature.
    • When brushing your teeth (after 12 hours), do so gently and do not use charcoal based tooth paste.
  • For the first 48 hours:
    • Avoid sticky foods and gum.
  • There may be slight sensitivity in the first 48 hours where the tooth gem was applied. This can vary depending on the health of your tooth’s enamel. You can apply a fluoride or sensitivity tooth paste directly on the area, let it sit for 5 minutes, and gently brush it off to ease the sensitivity. If sensitivity or pain persists, please see your dental care provider.
  • You may feel some extra of the bonding around the gem area. This will wear off within a couple of weeks from normal brushing and eating.
  • If your tooth jewelry falls off, you may feel some bonding left on the tooth. This can be polished off by your dental professional.
  • If you get a whitening treatment or use whitening strips, the area under the tooth jewelry will not be exposed, therefore will not get whitened. It is highly recommended that you continue to visit your dental professional for regular cleanings and checkups while you have your gem on.

Replacement Policy:

If your gem pops off in a week from the initial application date, while you follow the post-care instruction closely, replacement will be done for free within 30 days from the application date. Please notify your technician right away. If you notify your technician any later than a week since your initial application or it is due to not following the after-care, this will be void.

Tooth Gems FAQs

Can you feel the tooth jewellery on your teeth?

At first, you’ll feel the gem when you run your tongue over it. Eventually, you’ll get used to it being there!

How long will the gems and decals last on my teeth?

The gems can last anywhere from one month to six (or more) months. It all depends on the placement, care, and underlying tooth structure. In general, gems on teeth that you use to bite down with won’t last as long as one that’s used less often. A healthy mouth will also help tooth jewelry last longer (one that is flossed, brushed and rinsed regularly! Please be sure to follow the after-care instruction. Our gem technicians know the best practices for ensuring the best bond possible for your specific smile.

Will they damage my teeth?

No! Our kit’s bonding solution is the same as what is used for orthodontic brackets. It is superficially applied, and can be removed any time by visiting professionals. They do not damage the tooth enamel, and will not cause any damage when applied and removed properly.

Can they be removed?

Yes! Just like orthodontic brackets, the gems can be removed without causing any damage to your tooth/ teeth. To have your gem or decal removed, please visit your dentist or dental hygienist, and they’ll be able to safely remove the gem and polish your teeth back to normal. Ask your hygienists. Many of them do this free of charge during your check up and cleaning. Some may charge a small fee to only get the tooth jewelry removed.

We do not advise that you get tooth jewellery removed by anyone other than a dental professional! There is a risk of hurting your gums and enamel if not done properly with the correct instruments.

Can they be applied to crowns, veneers, or dentures?

Sadly, they can’t. Tooth gems need to be applied to healthy, natural tooth enamel only.

What if I accidentally swallow my tooth gem?

Don’t worry! It will come out eventually, and there is no risk to your health, as all of our gems are made out of safe materials for our bodies.

How do I brush and floss with a gem or decal on?

Just like you normally do! The bond we use to apply the gem is strong enough to withstand regular brushing after 48 hours. We recommend that you keep up with your brushing and flossing routine, as healthy teeth will make your tooth jewelry stand out!

Can I still go to the dentist and get a teeth cleaning?

Of course. Your dentist or dental hygienist can easily clean around the tooth jewelry. If you do want your tooth jewelry removed, your dentist or dental hygienist can easily pop it off during your visit, and polish up the tooth. The area under the gem is completely sealed off, so you don’t have to worry about getting cavities below it.

Can anyone get the gems on their teeth?

If your teeth or gums are really sensitive, have open decay, or if you have gum disease, we do NOT recommend any tooth gems. Ideally, tooth gems should only be applied to healthy teeth. If it’s been a long time since you have been to a dentist or had a cleaning, we highly recommend you do that before scheduling your  application!
