Most frequently asked questions about Teeth Jewelry
Is tooth jewelry safe for your teeth and general health?
Before you decide on tooth jewelry, know what you’re getting into! Not all dental jewelry is created equal. Make sure the vendor can confidently guarantee that the ‘gold’ they are selling will not corrode in your mouth!!
A proper dental alloy for use intraorally (in your mouth) will be a specific composition of high noble alloys. You must know what type of metal your tooth jewelry is made of so that the metal does not corrode in your mouth.
Our Bocca di Moda dental jewelry is 100% biocompatible and manufactured by registered dental technicians.
Many people ask us if these diamonds or crystals can damage your teeth?
And the answer is straightforward. NO! Bocca di Moda’s custom made teeth jewelry is made specifically for use in dentistry and does not damage the teeth in any way.
But how do teeth jewelry stay on your teeth? Do you need a drill?
We will not drill your teeth to apply your Bocca di Moda teeth jewelry!
They are either fixed to your tooth using a special bond which makes them easy to apply and take off. Others are removable so you can put it on or off whenever you want (just as any other usual jewelry).
The removable ones are made just for you and require impressions to ensure that they fit perfectly. But you can use them for a longer time.
For how long can you keep or use tooth jewelry?
We recommend that you change your temporary tooth gem every 6 months at your hygiene appointment giving you the opportunity to select a new design. When it comes to the removable ones, as long as you do not change your teeth shape or size, you can use it for a very long time! Like you would use any other regular ring, necklace or bracelet.
Can you eat, drink or speak easily with custom made teeth jewelry on your teeth?
Yes, you can speak clearly, but when it comes to eating and drinking, it depends on the type of jewelry you pick. For the fixed ones, you will not have any issue whatsoever while eating and drinking. You should pay attention when brushing your teeth to make sure you clean your teeth thoroughly. You should also know that you can still brush your teeth using an electric or manual toothbrush and there will be no problem for you and your tooth gem will stay in its place. When it comes to the removable ones, we do not recommend you eat or to drink with your teeth jewelry on. You can easily take it off while you eat and drink and put it back on after. Also, we encourage you to clean it before you put them on a jewelry box or wherever you like to store them.
Can tooth jewelry change the color of your teeth?
The fixed tooth jewelry is applied to your teeth with a transparent dental bond. The bond may change its color over time because of the type of food or drinks we consume. This is another reason we do not encourage you to keep it on your teeth too long. The reflection of the gold from the tooth gems can make your teeth look a bit more golden for someone with very fine sight, and if you have very white teeth this can be more visible. When you choose crystals or diamonds, your smile will be more shiny and sparkly, and people will notice it, but these materials do not change your teeth color, although they can reflect the light on the environment, your teeth will not change their color.
What kind of jewelry do you have and where can I see them?
We offer a large variety of #dentaljewelry made from 3 different colors of gold (rose gold, white gold or yellow gold), diamonds or crystals. They can be small or big, discreet or more prominent. You can choose to have them only on one tooth or over multiple ones. They can have a standard shape or a custom design shape and size as you wish. And your investment can start as low as $175 for one crystal tooth gem. You can see pictures here, on Facebook Messenger, on our Instagram page, on our Facebook Page, on our Facebook Group Smile Calgary or on the Bocca di Moda website here. Here are some of the designs that we offer, but we can create almost any shape you wish. We can discuss this at your first free consultation.
Who can have tooth jewelry?
Teeth jewelry is for anyone who wants to show their style and personality, or if you love diamonds and gold.
In case you need some essential dental restorations or other necessary oral treatment, we encourage you to take care of your oral health first. After your major oral health issues are addressed, you should pick your tooth jewelry. Also, if you plan to have your teeth cleaned or whitened in the next few months, we encourage you to do that first and after that to get your teeth jewelry. In case you need to get a dental crown, dental implant or orthodontic treatment, we encourage you to solve that first. We believe that your health is essential; this is why we have a short consultation before any teeth jewelry selection and application. You should also know that we can apply teeth jewelry also on a denture, implant, crown or veneer.
How much it costs to have a custom made tooth jewelry?
The initial consultation is free, and it should take up to 10 minutes.
The cost of teeth jewelry depends on the type of jewelry, size and material used or if it is a standard or custom shape and design. Our fixed dental jewelry prices start at $175. The crystals will be the ones with the lowest investment required, while de gold and diamonds will be more expensive. The general rule is the more prominent size, the higher the investment. Also, a standard shape will be more accessible than a custom design one.
When it comes to removable custom-designed dental jewelry, the investment will be dependent upon the weight of the gold and number of diamonds as well as the design fees. Alos, we will need to take impressions and to make sure after the tooth jewelry is finished that it fits your teeth properly. The application fee for removable custom-designed dental jewelry will depend on the total time and work needed until the end of the process. This is why we will inform you of the final cost when you decide on the type of jewelry you want.
What is the process and how long it takes to get tooth jewelry?
After you decide that you what to enhance your smile with tooth jewelry we encourage you to decide what type of jewelry you prefer.
Do you prefer it fixed to your teeth or easy to take off and put it on back whenever you want?
Based on your answer we will book you for a short free consultation.
If you know very well what you want, and you are sure that you want a fixed, standard size and style teeth jewelry, you can have your teeth gem applied to your teeth on the same visit. It should take about 30 minutes in total. If you are not sure which one will fit your best, what color of gold, what shape, or what size, we will help you understand your options. After you decide, we will book you for your next appointment.
If you prefer removable tooth jewelry, we will need 3 visits in total. First one is the free consultation, then the visit when we will take impressions, and once the custom design is completed, you will come to get your teeth jewelry, this can take up to 10 days as our dental artisans are handcrafting this just for you. The required time to manufacture your custom designed removable tooth jewelry it depends on our partners Bocca di Moda. We will inform you precisely about it on your second visit. At the end of the procedure, we can take some lovely pictures with you and your new smile. You can choose to keep these pictures just for you or to share it with your friends and family!
Who can apply tooth gem on my tooth?
There are just a few dental offices in Calgary where you can get a tooth gem applied, and we are honoured that at Lakeview Dental Centre in SW Calgary you can get a custom tooth jewelry to enhance your smile.
Our general dentist Dr. Violet Newman, our hygienist Jassminne and dental assistant Divya, were all trained and certified to help you decide and apply your tooth gem on the right spot on your teeth without any pain, discomfort or damage to your teeth.
Come to meet our Bocca Stylists and find out their stories and how they feel after 4+ months since they tried out Bocca di Moda Custome Made Dental Jewelry.
What do other people say about Bocca di Moda Custome Dental Jewelry?
I got the gem because I have seen it on other individuals and I loved it. The process of having it applied was very simple and easy, no pain or irritation was involved. At first, I felt odd because I wasn’t used to it, but after a few days, I did not even notice it. I would recommend you to get tooth jewelry if you want a little bling in your life! – Jassminne – our Bocca Stylist
I was very apprehensive to get a jewel put on my tooth as I had never imagined putting anything on my teeth. But then when we launched Bocca di Moda Custom Teeth Jewelry in our office I got excited to try it. When dr. Newman explained how she is going to put it and how it would not be drilled onto my tooth, I was immediately on board. I got a little crystal stone on my front I tooth and it was a totally painless procedure and was very fast. An initial couple of days my tongue kept going there but now I have had it for 4 months and I love it. I don’t even feel that it’s there. I can easily clean the area and there is no decay because of it. I plan to get another one soon, and I will probably try a different type of gem this time. But this one definitely enhanced my smile! – Divya – our Bocca Stylist
At Lakeview Dental Centre in SW Calgary, we used to apply diamonds on a tooth. But I was not so keen about it because it involved some preparation and damaging the tooth. And for me to prevent different oral issues was and still is way more important. When Bocca di Moda came to our office and proposed us to be one of their few dental offices that can provide this service for customers in SW Calgary, the fact that their tooth gems do not damage the tooth and it can be reversible was a gamechanger. The first one I tried was a golden moon with a diamond in it. It looked fabulous, and I loved it. Then I decide, I want to try something new! I had a few days without any tooth gem, and I even started to miss it. I love this little way of making your smile unique and special. The best part is that after more than 4 months, I had no mark or damage to my tooth when I removed that old tooth gem. So just a few days ago I got a new tooth gem, a big and bright crystal. I feel it so wonderful on my teeth, is comfortable, shining, sparkly and makes my smile unique. I love it! You should try one too! – Dr. Violet Newman – General Dentist and Bocca Stylist
