    The simplest and cheapest skyses are made from ordinary glass, they are more correctly called rhinestones. You can glue a tooth and a usual rhinestones for nails or clothes, but here you can not get a special shine and color overflow. Ordinary rhinestones are less durable on teeth than specially developed dental skyses. Rhinestones are not suitable for being in the moist environment of the oral cavity, their mirror base can quickly peel off from the stone and a gray trace will remain on the tooth. It can be removed without problems, but the spoiled mood is guaranteed. The support of dental scabies has a special rough surface, which allows them to hold firmly on the teeth and not to peel off. Because of the cheapness of this kind of dental jewelry( rhinestones) is available to absolutely everyone.


    Strasses are especially recommended for children with baby teeth. As they say "cheap and angry".With gluing skysa you can start dating a child with a dentist. The next time the child will not be scared when visiting a doctor, and he will have an additional incentive for cleaning his teeth.

Children become more attentive to the health and purity of their teeth when they have a beautiful pebble in their mouth. And if the rhinestone of a child to get unstuck is not a pity, and sticking the same new one will make no problems.

    More expensive skys are made of rock crystal, Swarovski crystals, precious stones and metals, special medical alloys.
    Other dialects differ in color, shape, size, manufacturer's firm. There are rainbow skays for teeth. They have not one but several shades, they shimmer with different colors of the rainbow even without getting light on them, although they themselves are transparent.

    Most often, decorations for teeth are placed on the upper teeth. On the medial margin( near the center) of the canines or the first premolars, on the distal( far from the center) or medial edge of the second incisors. Which is better to decorate the tooth is solved individually with a dentist, while the shape and size of the teeth, the bite, the smile zone, into which the teeth fall are estimated. After that, a suitable pebble is selected. Then you can try it on several teeth to choose the most suitable location. In addition to a healthy tooth, the skice can be attached to a ceramic crown or a seal.

    Twinkles for decorating teeth

    A variety of dental ornaments are Twinkles - these are miniature precious ornaments of white and yellow gold, which can be decorated with small diamonds, rubies, sapphires.

    Species of Twinkles

    Such decorations look attractive, stylish and exquisite. Their thickness is less than that of skyses and rhinestones. They are securely attached.

    Only a professional dentist can glue and remove the skys. Encrusting teeth with Skyses can be done in two ways: with preparation( drilling) of the tooth and without it. In the first case a cavity corresponding to the size of the decoration is drilled in the tooth. Then the pebble in the hole is fixed with filling materials.

    In this way, precious stones are fixed. After all, they have a convex shape, and they can not be fixed in another way. And if you do not secure them securely and they are lost, it will be a pity to lose a lot of money invested in a natural pebble. With this fixation, tooth tissues are damaged which will not be restored in the future. Even the coefficients of thermal expansion of stones and tooth tissues do not coincide. If the gemstone is fixed in a living tooth, then under the influence of thermal stimuli( for example, hot drinks, ice cream), pain will arise. Therefore, such decorations are recommended to inlay the "dead teeth"( without nerve), artificial ceramic crowns and veneers.

    Without preparation, that is without harm to the teeth and without damage to the enamel, paste crystals, skays and gold lining. Installation of a tooth ornaments takes 5-10 minutes.

    After you have decided on the location and type of decoration, you can start fixing it.

    1. First you need to clean the chosen tooth with a special highly abrasive paste without fluorine with a brush on the micromotor.
    2. Next, a special gel is applied to the place where the skice will be installed, 37% orthophosphoric acid. Thanks to him, the pores appear in the enamel at the micro level.
    3. Further, these pores are treated with an adhesive system that will serve as a link between the tooth and the filling material to which the skice will adhere.
    4. Adhesive is illuminated with a special lamp, 10-20 seconds according to the manufacturer's instructions.
    5. The photocurable composite
    6 is applied to the surface. 6. The ready-to-paste decoration( free of dust and grease) is applied to the surface of the filling material on the tooth. Then again, it is lighted with the same polymerization lamp on both sides of the tooth.
    7. The surplus of the composite is polished.

    The procedure for installing a rhinestone for a dentist is simple and fast, but it requires special materials and skills. For the patient - fast and painless. If you comply with all the technologies during installation, and the doctor's recommendations for use, then the stuck Skays are kept from 6 months until they get bored.

    For the first time a couple of hours, and someone and a day can feel a foreign body on the tooth. At the end of this time, this feeling passes, and the decoration becomes invisible to its owner. If it is felt on the tooth or causes discomfort, then you need to contact the dentist to correct it.

    Special care tooth decorations do not require, a standard method of cleaning your teeth 2 times a day is enough. But it should be remembered that if a lot of dental plaque is constantly accumulating near the decoration, then it can become unstuck, because the material to which it is adhered does not tolerate dirt on the teeth. Also, you should not chew on this tooth crackers, drying, seeds, open this tooth bottles, cans.

    If the decoration is tired, it is not a problem to remove. But the removal must be done by a professional dentist. Decoration is removed from the tooth as well as braces. Then the tooth is polished, polished and covered with fluorine lacquer. Only the material is removed, the tooth is not damaged

    Some jewelry may lose brightness and color saturation over time. Therefore, you need to correct the appearance. Yes, and preventive examinations at the dentist once every six months are mandatory.
