Some people like to keep it simple by not wearing heavy makeup or wearing plain yet comfy clothes. On the other hand, there are also some people who try every new beauty trend out there- and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Beauty trends are actually pretty cool.

And they are not popular for nothing. So don’t be scared of trying them, especially if you are certain that it will make you feel beautiful. Just educate yourself about their effects and if they will be a bit dangerous for you.

If you are with me, you might actually want to check this new hot beauty trend for your white pearly teeth.

They’re known as tooth gems and you can find photos of them all over the internet.

On Instagram, there are multiple pictures and they’re urging you to try them. It’s actually interesting to know how they attach gems to their teeth and, according to Totally The Bomb, it’s by using an adhesive.

You will mostly see small gems that are actually kinda classy but there are also people who like teeth grillz that cover most of their teeth. One of the celebrities who have tried this is Lil Wayne.

If those beautiful photos online make you interested in tooth gems, I advise you to get to know more about its risks too.

Fair enough, right? Well, according to Stensland Dental Studio, tooth gems can cause discoloration on the tooth.

They may trigger the risk of getting tooth decay and infection too.

It’s because of the jeweled gems that may wear away enamel – which is the thin outer protection of the tooth.

Having tooth gems requires proper care too.

When you have these teeth decorations, you’ll need to maintain regular brushing and flossing to avoid getting bacteria as well as food particles caught in them. Though, we hope this is something you already put into practice.

The danger of tooth gem kits

It’s not actually advisable as there is a higher chance to cause complications like tooth decay.

How much are these tooth gems?

It can cost up to hundreds of dollars. The appointment starts at $55 while the gems can range from $20 up per “gem”.

Would you like to try it?

If your answer is yes, aside from reading information online, it’s still best to visit your dentist first and ask them questions about it. Putting something on your teeth, no matter how lovely it is, without consulting your dentist is actually pretty dangerous.

Tooth gems are really beautiful – there’s no doubt about that. However, if you would consider its possible effects, it’s actually very risky. But if you will take the necessary precautions and execute proper care, it just might work for you.

It’s totally okay to try beauty trends. It’s actually part of loving yourself more – which is good. But never forget to keep yourself informed about the things that you are planning to try, especially if they can affect your health too.

Always choose your safety before anything else.
