Applying jewellery to teeth has certain risks.
- breaking a tooth when applying the jewellery
- irritating the oral mucosa and bleeding
- swallowing or inhaling the jewellery while it is being applied
- allergic reaction to products or metals used in the jewellery
This is not a simple cosmetic procedure by any means. It must be carried out in an appropriate environment under strict hygienic and infection-controled conditions, preceded by a dental examination.
The Ordre des dentistes du Québec advises against the application of tooth jewellery, given the risks it involves for your oral health. Consult your dentist before making a decision.
