Tooth gem application is fairly simple. We start by filling out the consent form and doing a thorough consultation. Once a tooth has been chosen for gem application, we place a cheek retractor in the mouth to make the area more accessible. The tooth is then prepped for gem application, and the gem is applied with dental grade bond to the desired tooth. The bond is then cured with a blue LED light and checked to make sure it’s fully adhered.
