Dry your tooth with hydrogen peroxide, immediately after put the glue on the back of the gem with the help of tweezers. Paste it on your tooth and press for at least 10-15 minutes.

Anyone can use tooth gems, even if you suffer from sensitive teeth. However, it is always better to ask for a professional’s advice.
