Tooth jewellery is available in different shapes, sizes and colours. Tooth of interest is thoroughly cleaned and then etched with 37% phosphoric acid for 20-30 secs. This enhances the working or the bonding area of the tooth.Then rinse the tooth surface thoroughly with water. Now the frosted appearance on the tooth surface can be appreciated. Bonding Agent is then applied and is cured under light for 10-20 secs. Small amount of Composite is then applied on the surface, and then the tooth jewellery is placed on it. Further, it is light –cured from every angle for 40-60 secs and after that jewel is not touched and is allowed to set. The process takes on an average 8-10 mins only.
