Technique

  1. Brush Teeth.
  2. Pick which tooth and the location on the tooth that you would like placement of the jewel.
  3. Check bite for any interference (cross bite, end to end bite, etc.).
  4. Isolate area (with cotton roll) to keep it dry from saliva, hands, gloves, powder, oils, etc.
  5. ** Etch entire surface of tooth, including incisal edge, for 10 seconds, DO NOT RUB. ENTIRE TOOTH MUST BE ETCHED. DO NOT PUT ANY SEALANT ON ANY UNETCHED AREA.
  6. Rinse and dry, keeping tooth isolated with cotton roll.
  7. Reapply the etching for 10 seconds, then blot, DO NOT RUB. This is for the best bond.
    NOTE: ETCHED AREA SHOULD APPEAR FROSTY WHITE.
  8. Rinse and dry, keeping tooth isolated with cotton roll.
  9. Must re-etch if contaminated by saliva, etc.
  10. Apply a thin layer of sealant to etched area, and light cure 10-20 seconds.
  11. Apply sealant to back of mounted diamond and onto tooth. Place diamond.
  12. Before curing, position the diamond in the desired location, positioning for best light reflection and maximum sparkle when the patient is facing directly forward.
  13. Light cure for 20 seconds.
  14. Add thin layers of sealant around the diamond to make the surface smooth. Light cure for 10 Seconds after applying each layer. After filling in around the diamond add at least 3 layers of Sealant over the entire tooth surface and the diamond, curing after each layer.
  15. Finish with a final light cure for 30 seconds, then rinse.
  16. Keep smiling and show off your tooth gem.
