Tooth Gem is not recommended for the following patients with:
Active cold sores or in the past 2 weeks.
Very sensitive gums and teeth.
Not had your teeth professionally cleaned for the last 2 years.
Under the age of 16 (parental consent is required for clients under 19 years of age).
Pregnant or nursing.
Under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
Please come to the appointment with your teeth brushed and cleaned.
For the first hour:
Do not eat or chew gum.
For the first 12 hours:
Do not brush your teeth.
Avoid hard, crunchy, or crispy foods.
For the first 24 hours:
Do not play with it with your tongue or fingers.
Avoid extremes in temperature.
When brushing your teeth (after 12 hours), do so gently and do not use charcoal based toothpaste.
For the first 48 hours:
Avoid sticky foods and gum.
There may be slight sensitivity in the first 48 hours where the tooth gem was applied. This can vary depending on the health of your tooth’s enamel. You can apply a fluoride or sensitivity toothpaste directly on the area, let it sit for 5 minutes, and gently brush it off to ease the sensitivity. If sensitivity or pain persists, please see your dental care provider.
You may feel some extra of the bonding around the gem area. This will wear off within a couple of weeks from normal brushing and eating.
If you get a whitening treatment or use whitening strips, the area under the tooth jewelry will not be exposed, therefore will not get whitened. It is highly recommended that you continue to visit your dental professional for regular cleanings and checkups while you have your gem on.
