Are you looking for adding a spark to your personality? Then get chasing the latest trend which is to add a ‘sparkle’ to your teeth.
We are talking of teeth jewelry that helps you to flash a million dollar smile! Many are adapting this style statement not only to surprise friends with a sparkling crystal glass design, or something in gold with a twinkle of ruby or diamond, but also adds zing to your smile.
Brijesh Patel, one of the leading dentists shares, “Teeth jewelry is very much well-versed and preferred by NRIs. Although, not many localities contact us for the same as the concept of having teeth accessories is not known much to people here as of yet. The trend is catching up with males, specially those heading towards foreign destinations for study or leisure. However, not many girls are visiting clinics and inquiring about tooth jewellery.”
The procedure of fixing teeth jewelry is very simple and usually takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Dentists do offer lots of fun designs to choose from crystals, diamonds and 24 carat gold. There is no drilling involved, so the jewel does not damage tooth and has no side effects. It can be easily removed without any damage to the tooth structure. Further, if one wants tooth jewelry can be fixed again at a later stage. The longitivity of adhesion of these studs varies from 6 months to years.
Neeta Rautela, a dentist, raises concern towards care and maintenance of the same. She shares, “Teeth jewelry does require a lot of maintenance because of accumulation of plaque, this depends on one’s food habits et al and on tendency of one’s teeth to have stains. Thereby, timely routine cleaning and polishing is required so as to maintain shine of jewellery.”
When we asked Avni Panchal, who is a dentist, she shared, “I have an embedded diamond stud on tooth for quite some time, it is totally non-toxic and maintenance free. Even if one swallows this stud just in case, it does not cause any harm. I’m confident enough to recommend the same to those who are all game to keep a pace with new fashion trends.”
