Gold grillz have maintained their popularity over the years and continue to be a sought-after dental accessory to this day. With a devoted following, their fan base has grown steadily over time. These dental appliances can be either subtle or flashy, but they are always noticeable.
Typically designed for short-term use solely for cosmetic purposes, grillz are not intended to be permanently affixed to teeth. Nevertheless, some people have opted to make their grillz a permanent fixture. While it is a decision not to be taken lightly, it is also a way to express oneself and enhance one's personality and self-esteem. It provides a means for the wearer to showcase their individuality.
While the idea of installing permanent grillz may seem daunting for most people, it is a straightforward and uncomplicated procedure in the field of dentistry. Dentists are well-versed in the application of permanent grillz, given the trend's longevity.
But what drives some individuals to desire gold teeth in the first place? Gold has been used in dentistry for over a century due to its malleability, corrosion resistance, and biocompatibility, meaning it is unlikely to be rejected by the body like other foreign objects.
Gold is not only malleable but also has a hardness almost similar to our natural teeth, making it effective in grinding food. Furthermore, it is an enduring material that does not rust, which makes it perfect for permanent grillz that can last for up to twenty years with proper maintenance. Additionally, gold does not contract when exposed to hot or cold food or drinks, and it has antibacterial properties that protect surrounding teeth and promote oral health. Maintaining gold teeth does not require any special toothpaste, and it is hypoallergenic, which means that wearers are less likely to develop allergies, nerve problems, or bleeding gums from the metal over time, making it an excellent choice for dental jewelry.
Before deciding to get permanent grillz, there are a few important things to consider and understand to ensure that they will not harm your natural teeth:
Maintaining proper dental hygiene is crucial, which includes brushing, flossing, and quitting smoking to improve oral health.
While some people view grillz as a form of art or self-expression, others consider permanent gold teeth tacky and unappealing.
It's important to note that certain organizations and companies may consider permanent grillz unprofessional, which could impact your job prospects.
Removing permanent grillz is a costly, time-consuming, and painful process that often requires replacement sets once removed.
Although rare, there is a possibility of experiencing unpleasant side effects, such as an allergic reaction to nickel and other alloys combined with gold, leading to gum inflammation, redness, and swelling.
Grillz are a great way to enhance your style and make a statement. They allow you to express yourself creatively while also improving your natural smile. However, getting permanent grillz is a significant decision that should not be taken lightly. While generally safe, there are important considerations to keep in mind. We strongly recommend consulting with a dentist who has experience with grillz to provide detailed explanations and answer any questions you may have about installation and removal.
