Dental grade gold decals!
Our gold decals are made from dental gold alloy, made specifically for oral use. They will not discolour or corrode, and are made up of a high quality, non-allergenic, non-toxic and non-carcinogenic material. They are nickel, lead and cobalt free.
As a technician, you can charge $120-160 per gold decal application to your clients, depending on your local area.
Cast in our lab in Calgary, AB, we guarantee each piece is well crafted and 100% safe for bonding to enamel using Flossy Gems™ tools and materials.
These high-quality, dental-grade decals are casted thinner, to sit better on the tooth and last longer. Using your Flossy Gems™ Tooth Gem Technician kit, you have all you need to apply gold decals along side gems.
For a limited time, we are offering our gold decals at introductory pricing, starting at $55/piece. Get a 5% discount when you order 12 or more!
The type of dental alloy chosen for your smile matters because each alloy has different properties that should be considered. There are 3 classifications of alloys used in dentistry, high noble (precious), noble (semiprecious) and non-noble (nonprecious), based on the composition of the alloy in terms of what type of metals it contains and the percentage of each.
All dental crowns that have a metal component are made using a specifically formulated dental alloy because the physical properties of the alloy are superior. For example, Gold in pure form is too soft to give good wear characteristics and would tend to deform. Furthermore, the base metals in a dental alloy formulations form oxides that enhance metal-to-porcelain bond strength.
As you might have expected, some of the prominent noble metals contained in dental alloys include gold, platinum and palladium which depending on the percentage of each will impact the cost. A higher quantity of any of these precious metals will yield a higher quality, more expensive product.
The single most relevant reason to select tooth jewelry that is crafted using an approved dental alloy is its biologic safety as it relates to corrosion. There are only a handful of alloys that are recommended for use in the oral cavity. Do you know what they are? And better yet, do you know the exact composition of what the tooth jewelry offered online is? How can you be sure? Are the supplier’s products regulated by any Health Canada or FDA Guidelines?
There are a few significant reasons that you should consider prior to popping a metal appliance of unknown origin into your mouth. We all know what happens to metal over time when it is exposed to the elements…corrosion. If you have an appliance in your mouth that is not manufactured using an appropriate dental alloy and it starts to corrode, as the elements (metal ions) from the appliance come in contact with the adjacent tissue (your gums) you could be subject to some very undesirable reactions.
These reactions can include:
cytotoxicity (toxic to human cells)
carcinogenicity (cancer causing)
For example, several elements such as nickel and cobalt have relatively high potential to cause allergy, and prudence dictates that alloys containing these elements be avoided in the oral cavity if possible. Even worse, there are few elements such as beryllium and cadmium that are known carcinogens in different chemical forms.
That said, to minimize biological risks, you should only place alloys that are known to have the lowest release of elements (IE lowest corrosion). This goal can be achieved by using approved dental alloys primarily comprised of high-noble alloys such as Gold, Palladium and Titanium in the appropriate composition.
