Can I place the gemstones or crystals on my teeth if I have braces or other dental work?
No, we do not recommend using our Tooth Gem Kit if you have braces or other dental work. The glue can damage the dental work and complications can arise when removing the gems or crystals.

Can I return the Tooth Gem Kit if I don't want to use it?
Yes, if you don't want to use our Tooth Gem Kit you can return it within 14 days of receipt for a full refund. Please ensure that the kit is returned unopened and in its original packaging. Unfortunately, opened packages cannot be taken back for hygienic reasons.

What happens if I get glue on my gums during application?
We recommend taking extra care while applying the gemstones or crystals to avoid getting glue on your gums. If a small amount of glue does end up on the gums, this is not harmful and the glue will break down over time. Rinse your mouth and teeth thoroughly with water after placing the dental jewel. Consult your dentist if you continue to experience irritation or discomfort.

Are the gems permanent?
No, dental jewelry is temporary and will fall out on its own over time. The lifespan varies between 3 weeks and sometimes up to 12 months, depending on the placement and maintenance of your teeth.

Is it removable?
Yes, your dentist can safely remove the dental jewel for you. We do not recommend removing the dental jewel yourself to prevent damage to your teeth.

Is my tooth jewel falling off?
Yes, eventually the tooth jewel will fall off. The life of the tooth jewel is never guaranteed. Realistically, it should take between 3 weeks and 12 months for it to fall off. If the tooth jewel falls off, it may leave a residual bond on the tooth. This bond will not cause damage and will brush off over time. If necessary, it can be removed by your dentist during your next dental check-up.

Can I place a dental jewel on veneers?
No, the bonding agent can only bond to natural teeth. Our Tooth Gem Kit is not suitable for artificial teeth such as crowns, bridges and veneers, because they have a different structure than natural teeth.

What if I accidentally swallow the dental jewel?
Do not worry. The tooth jewel is made of lead-free crystal glass without sharp edges. If you accidentally swallow it, it will leave your body in the same way as other foods. It is not dangerous and does no harm. Obviously don't eat it for breakfast.

Why do we not recommend using the Tooth Gem Kit during pregnancy?
We strongly advise against using the Tooth Gem Kit during pregnancy. Hormonal changes and increased sensitivity can occur during pregnancy, which can make your teeth and gums more sensitive. It's always best to be cautious about any new dental procedures during this time and wait until before or after pregnancy.
