A tooth tattoo is applied by painting the tattoo on the crown of the natural tooth or the crown of the implant. Firstly, a digital impression is taken from the patient, next, the crown is produced, and then, the technician processes the desired tattoo on the crown.
It is not ink used to paint the tattoo, it is porcelain. Porcelain is liquid before it is fired. After the desired pattern is brushed on the porcelain crown, it is fired and polished. Therefore, the tattoo is protected from saliva and becomes resistant to erosion.
It usually takes about 2 to 3 days. This period may vary depending on the crown and desired pattern.
