What are Tooth Sparkles or Smile Gems?

  • Small Swarovsky crystals that can be bonded to teeth
  • Small custom gems or minerals that can be bonded to teeth
  • Small custom or ready made gold or other metal pieces
  • usually the crystal or gem used has a smooth back to better adapt to the tooth surface.
