Tooth Diamond

Dental diamond is an application to make the tooth look more aesthetic. Dental diamonds, also called dental crystals, have become popular in terms of making a difference on the tooth surface and in the smile of the person. Dental crystals, which are very difficult to fall off the tooth surface and can be easily re-glued in case of falling off, are an advantageous aesthetic dentistry application because they can be applied at any age.

Who can get a dental diamond?

Dental diamonds can be worn by individuals of all age groups. However, there are some points to be considered before the application. First of all, the oral and dental health of the person must be fully ensured. Dental crystals are a procedure that should be performed by dentists who are experts in their field. Anyone with proper oral hygiene and teeth alignment can have dental crystals.

Stages of Dental Diamond Application

In the stages of dental diamond application, a very light abrasion process is performed on the part that will come to the outer surface of the diamond. A special adhesive called composite bonding is applied to the application area by dentists. 

Although the risk of the tooth crystal falling from the applied area after the procedure is very low, if the crystal falls, the dentist can easily replace it with a new one. When you want to remove the dental diamond, the tooth surface is restored to its former appearance by applying polish after the removal process.

What kind of stones are used in dental diamonds?

The type of stones used in dental diamonds is left to the individual's own preference. The person can also turn to different stones instead of crystal stones. Dental diamonds are more costly than dental stones. For this reason, the person can choose a stone suitable for their budget. However, since these stones are only applied to the tooth surface in the form of adhesion, the duration of use is shorter. 

This stone is unlikely to come out of the tooth surface, especially when eating or when the tooth is forced. The person may swallow the stone that comes out of the tooth and enters the mouth during the meal and may not be aware of this situation. When you want to remove these stones, there is no need for polishing. You can remove them directly.

Dental diamonds are usually made of glass or plastic and are attached to the teeth with a strong adhesive. Although the adhesive is typically safe, it can sometimes cause irritation or allergic reactions. In rare cases, these adhesives can also damage tooth enamel.
