Tooth charms are eating their way through the fashion industry and ending up in mouths everywhere. I can’t decide if I like it or hate it. At first glance it looks like a rotten tooth or a piece of food that was left behind after lunch. And, if you don’t have pearly whites, it’s not a good idea to draw attention to your chompers. Some of the charms are made from 14k gold, white gold and real diamonds, so they can get pricey. The trinkets are adhered with a dental composite material that can last from 6 months to a year. I think I’m going to pass on this trend, it seems like just another thing to worry about. Is it straight? Does my tooth charm have anything hanging from it? What if I swallow it? Oy!
If I’m going to spend money on gold and diamonds I want to make sure they’ll be around for a while and not floating in the toilet due to accidental consumption.
