are small figurines (e.g. from gold, white gold or precious stones) that are glued to a tooth without damaging its enamel. The procedure is completely painless. A decoration is about 0.5–1 mm thick, with the width and length varying (2–3 mm). As tooth decorations are relatively thin, patients get used to these fairly quickly. A dental decoration is made from metal or an individual stone, but it can also be a metal figurine with a stone. The price depends on the amount of precious metal used in the figurine and the value of the stone.
It takes only 15 minutes at the dental office to remove the decoration. Removing tooth decorations is a completely painless procedure as is the application. After the removal of the decoration the tooth surface will be as smooth and undamaged as it was before its application.
