Quick Reference

Objects attached to the teeth for the purposes of adornment and serving no functional value. Although it has been used for many years, it has recently become more popular; it usually takes the form of crystal embellishments bonded to the labial surfaces of anterior teeth using resin composite. It may also include non-functional colour-contrasting inlays in crowns or prosthetic appliances. See also oral piercing.
