The teeth as hard structures in the oral cavity are still regarded as jewelry and so today the tooth jewelry is a piece of jewelry on the tooth, which is glued to the tooth as an eye-catcher.
People already had the desire for attention in the Stone Age and have directed teeth through tooth jewelry. The teeth were depicted in oversized rock images and as a trophy the hunters adorned their necks with a tooth necklace.
In the middle of the first millennium before the turn of the Times, the first dental works and tooth jewelry were made by Etruscans and Phoenicians . The beginnings of the dental profession “dentist” were already encountered in 2500 v. Christ, when the dentures were carved from bone or ivory and tied with gold wires on their own teeth.
The ancient tooth bridge was more of a dental decoration than a functional tooth bridge, which was fixed and fastened to the remaining teeth with a ribbon of gold , as the history of dentistry shows. At that time, human or animal “replacement teeth” were also made of ivory with a metal pin on the gold-belt, because already at that time they knew that the saliva in the mouth could not attack the gold.
Gemstones are usually glued directly to the teeth without drilling at the dentist and give a radiant smile the unique something.
