Turning Your Child’s Baby Teeth Into Jewelry

We parents tend to be quite sentimental when it comes to our children. Their first teeth are no exception! Some parents keep their child’s baby teeth tucked away in plastic baggies, some keep them in keepsake boxes, and others tend to be more creative. After all, losing a first tooth is a milestone in a child’s life. These tiny teeth represent our babies’ first smiles and giggles, and they’re hard to part with!

One of the newest trends in baby teeth keepsakes is to have your child’s tooth bronzed and turned into jewelry! Many parents think this is a bizarre and somewhat creepy trend, but others are embracing it, saying it’s no less weird than bronzing baby shoes. Either way though, there are now many businesses that will turn your child’s teeth into a necklace pendant, a bracelet, or earrings.

Not Such A New Trend

Many people believe that jewelry made of baby teeth is a new thing. However, it was practiced in the Victorian era by Queen Victoria herself! When her daughter, Princess Victoria lost her first tooth, the queen had the tooth placed in a broach. The broach is now on display at an exhibition in Buckingham Palace.

No matter what you decide to do with your child’s baby teeth, the most important thing is to make sure the teeth are healthy! To schedule your child for a dental cleaning and exam, please contact Dr. Matthew Brady at Little Rockies Pediatric Dentistry. We’re located in beautiful Parker, CO!
