+ INNER WOLF TOOTH GEMS FAQ
HOW LONG WILL THE TOOTH JEWEL LAST?
Anywhere from 6 months up to 24 months for the Swarovski Crystals, Brilliance Crystals, and Shaped Crystals and 6 to 12 Months for the Real Gold Charms & Real Diamonds (Due to the extra Weight on these Specific Charms). With extra care, they may last even longer.
CAN I FEEL THE JEWEL ON MY TOOTH?
The jewels are only 0.4mm or 0.9mm thick and 1.8mm to 3mm in diameter. Initially, something on your tooth will feel different, but a few days after the application, you will get used to the new feeling.
WILL THE JEWEL HARM MY TOOTH?
No! The jewel will bond to the enamel, like an orthodontic bracket, without any drilling or pain. The procedure and removal is similar to the placement and removal of orthodontic brackets. When it is removed, the gem/charm is simply popped off and the tooth will be polished to remove any remaining bonding material.
I HAVE VENEERS/A FALSE TOOTH, CAN I STILL GET CHARMED?
Unfortunately, the bonding agent will only attach to natural tooth tissue.
I HAVE A GEM/BOND ON MY TOOTH CURRENTLY. CAN YOU REMOVE IT?
Unfortunately, I cannot remove crystals/bond at the time of your service; a dentist must do it before you arrive. Your tooth must be free of previous crystals/bond at the time of service. The bonding agent will not attach to existing bond.
DOES THE JEWEL IMPEDE BRUSHING?
No, the presence of the tooth jewelry will not make any difference regarding dental hygiene. However, it is recommended not to use an electric toothbrush.
WHAT IF THE JEWEL FALLS OFF AND I SWALLOW IT?
The jewels are tiny glass crystals or gold. They have no sharp edges. It will come out "the natural way" the same as it went inside your body.
CAN I STILL HAVE MY TEETH CLEANED BY MY DENTIST/HYGENIST?
Yes, you can and should still have your teeth cleaned by a professional. Tooth jewelry will not cause a problem for the hygienist cleaning your teeth. The area underneath the jewel is sealed like a filling and will not let in any bacteria. The hygienist can easily polish on top and around the gemstone with a soft point.
CAN I STILL WEAR MY RETAINER/INVISALIGN?
For a retainer, it depends on the type. If it is a Hawley Retainer (the wire kind), yes! Just bring it to your appointment and can make sure the placement of the gems doesn’t interfere with it. Unfortunately, if you have the clear plastic tray type (this also applies to Invisalign), it will put too much pressure on your tooth and the gem, so it’s not something I would recommend.
