The first ever tooth gem style bible, this fun, fashion-forward book travels across continents to showcase some of the globe’s most eye- catching and daring dental jewelry. Tooth gems are taking the world by storm, and everyone from celebrities and influencers to stylists and dental hygienists is hopping on board. Serving up pages of dazzling and bejeweled grins, this guide features the handiwork of over 45 artists and technicians who are setting the bar for creativity in cities such as Atlanta, Bangkok, Barcelona, Berlin, Buenos Aries, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Melbourne/Naarm, Mexico City, Miami, Montreal, New Delhi, New York, Oslo, Seoul, Warsaw, and more. Each tooth gem specialist’s profile includes work samples as well as commentary about their practice, process, and style. An introduction by journalist Lauren Levy provides cultural context as well as a wider history of tooth adornments, from gold bands worn by ancient Etruscans and jade inserts favored by the Maya, to the grills sported by rappers starting in 1980s New York City, the idea for which came from West Indian immigrants’ gold teeth. No matter what their vibe, this gem of a book offers inspiration and tips for readers hoping to embrace a new look or elevate their own toothy style.
