Everyone has heard about famous people getting temporary grills with jeweled embellishments to enhance their smile. But have you heard of diamond bonding for your teeth? While many celebrities and everyday people alike spend a lot of time preserving their smiles with cosmetic dentistry techniques; including whitening treatments and veneers; there are some people who are taking the idea of ‘sparkling smiles’ to a whole new level, with tooth diamond implants. Visit the dentists from No Gaps Dental in Chatswood as they offer services that can improve your smile.
Katy Perry, Pink and Hailey Baldwin are just a few of the famous faces that are making their smiles sparkle, by having a professional dentist insert real diamonds into their teeth. It’s a lot like that little bit of bling that you see glued to women’s fingernails, that enhance their fingernail art, but instead of fingertip art, this is tooth art.
In the same way that a dentist will add bonding for a filling, the process of adding a tooth diamond implant is a procedure in which the dentist will permanently attach one or more diamonds directly onto the person’s tooth. The diamonds can be placed anywhere on the tooth, most people will either choose to have their diamonds placed on one of their front teeth so that it is very noticeable to everyone. Or some people choose to have their diamonds placed on one of their side teeth or bottom teeth, where they will be less noticeable initially.
This type of tooth art is not for everyone and even those who may want to have their teeth embellished may not be able to afford it. Depending on the size and quality of the diamond, the average cost of one piece of a real tooth diamond implant can cost around $2,000.
Tooth diamond implants are considered to be permanent, but a dentist can take the jewelry off in a professional setting with dental tools. Most dentists are not concerned that there will be any major or permanent damage to the person’s tooth. People can and should still brush their teeth normally, and they should continue to get their yearly professional teeth cleanings from their dentist.
