Tooth decorations and gemstones, together with bleaching, ensure particularly beautiful teeth. The prerequisite for dental jewelry is healthy tooth structure or an intact filling underneath. After lightly polishing the tooth surface, a transparent composite adhesive is applied to the tooth in question. The desired dental jewelry is then attached to it and then hardened with blue light. The tooth enamel remains intact. The whole procedure is completely painless.
Dental jewelry does not harm your teeth as long as it is installed by a dentist.
So whether it's Twinkles (Brillis) or Dazzler, inserting dental jewelry is quick, in about 20 minutes. By the way, tooth jewelry is very trendy. In the USA, 20 percent of young people have already had it applied. In our practice you can choose from a wide variety of motifs or simply bring your own tooth jewelry, for example made of white gold. Your taste decides!
We also offer original Swarovski stones in our dental practice. These are manufactured using a special manufacturing process. They are particularly pure and clear and absolutely free of inclusions, bubbles or streaks. They are available in crystal, shimmershell, aquamarine, sapphire and ruby. The mirror-smooth, polished facets of the stones are precisely cut and give them the fire of brilliant-cut diamonds and the sparkle of stars. Therefore, the Swarovski stones are not only the favorites of dentists, but also appeal to every lover of gemstones.
Tooth jewelry comes in many shapes and is glued to the front teeth or incisors with a special adhesive for decoration. Dental jewelry can be made from a variety of materials such as gold, silver, gemstones, or even colored crystals. People also speak of Twinkles (Brillis), Dazzlers, Skyces and Grillz.

Attaching the gemstone costs around 115 CHF, regardless of the product. Each additional stone costs 35 CHF. Of course, if you wish, we can also provide you with the glasses or dazzlers you have brought with you.
Dazzlers are gold foil shapes and symbols, often animals or stars. Twinkles, also called Brillis or Brillies, are solid settings made of real gold (yellow or white gold), which are usually chosen together with precious stones. The version with cheaper crystal glass is called Skyces. The grillz or grills are considered to be critical by dentists for the tooth surface, as effective daily tooth cleaning with a toothbrush is disrupted by the wide attachments. They are usually made of silver, white gold or platinum and are known from music videos of well-known hip-hoppers and rappers. The metallic caps, which are worn over the teeth as a piece of jewelry, are usually removable and often decorated with diamonds or lettering. They are made by taking a mold from the upper row of teeth.
Applying dental jewelry is usually completely painless. We use special dental adhesives to securely attach the dental jewelry to the tooth surface. Neither anesthesia nor drilling is necessary, which is why attaching dental jewelry is considered minimally invasive.
Dental jewelry can be replaced or removed at any time. If you want to remove your dental jewelry again, it's very easy. In practice, we do this quickly and painlessly with a special instrument. The remaining fixing material is then polished away and the tooth is as before.
The durability of dental jewelry varies depending on the material used and the care taken in maintaining it. In general, you can expect dental jewelry to last from several months to a few years. High-quality materials and professional installation contribute to longevity.
In principle yes, but additional caution is required. Just use a soft toothbrush and be a little more careful in the area around the jewelry so as not to loosen or damage it. Some people also use special dental floss or interdental brushes.
