Guys, We Need To Talk About Lady Gaga’s Teeth Right Now

Stop. Stop what you are doing. I need your attention. This is the grill Lady Gaga wore on the red carpet at last night’s YouTube Awards. Upsetting, no?  I have spent some time zooming in on these chompers and I’ve come to the conclusion that they are real human teeth embedded in sterling silver. I…

Total Nightmare: Dentist Pull Out All Of Man’s Teeth Without His Permission

Just thinking about this is giving me chills: Christopher Crist went to Amazing Family Dentist in Indianapolis, Indiana, to have a couple of problem teeth removed. But somehow, the dentist removed 29 of his teeth. He’s now toothless and wondering what the fuck happened. The 21-year-old autistic man was told by his mother to ask…

There are many uses for hydrogen peroxide, it can even fight blemishes. Now, I’ve got another excellent use for this household antiseptic: It whitens teeth!! Safely, that is. I know the name is a little off-putting, (“hydrogen peroxide” doesn’t exactly sound like something you should put in your mouth) but the stuff you pick u…

Do Not Want: Jawbone Sunglasses

One of my dad’s main hobbies when I was growing up was collecting and cleaning skulls, so I probably feel a bit more comfortable with bones, teeth, and cartilage than the average person (my brothers and I used to play with one particular manta ray exoskeleton as if it were a GI Joe doll). Even so,…

What’s The Going Rate For The Tooth Fairy These Days?

This weekend, I called my sister to rehash my love life. 

Suddenly I could hear her turning to a small child in the background. “Do you want to tell Aunt Jessie the big news?” she asked. “No!” My five-year-old niece M. replied. 

“Tell me, what’s the big news?” I asked my…

Did Jewel Fix Her Snaggletooth?

Breaking news! Notoriously snaggletoothed singer Jewel is sporting a decidedly straighter smile. She tweeted a photo of herself on the set of the upcoming June Carter Cash biopic she’s filming for Lifetime, writing that she now has “perfect teeth.” Given that she never “fixed” her teeth in the years she’s been rich and famous, I’m…

Charlize Theron Had No Teeth Until Age 11

Charlize Theron, apparently, actually sat down for an interview with British tabloid the Sun, where she dropped this odd tidbit: “I had no teeth until I was 11.”
She explains that, due to a heavy regimen of antibiotics for jaundice as a child, her teeth “rotted” and had to be removed, leaving her with “fangs.&#8221…

Lindsay Lohan Gets Zoomed

A gig as a Playboy playmate means money for a brand new smile. Lindsay Lohan got her prematurely aging teeth whitened. “Thanks Dr. Dorfman for the zoom… My gums are so sore though!” she tweeted of her transformation. If only she could get all of her other problems “zoomed.” [Huffington Post]…

Mirror, Mirror: My Snaggletooth Rules

Like a lot of people, my teeth were pushed and pulled with a variety of contraptions during my formative years. It all started innocently enough in 5th grade when I got spacers. Tiny rubber bands were wound between metal brackets that had been twisted around my back teeth. This was the first sign that my…

Do Not Want: A Bracelet With Bite

A single animal tooth, sure. A tiny cast bronze animal skull replica even, that’s fine. But I draw the line at wearing human teeth — real or otherwise. And frankly, while I know I’m into some weird stuff style-wise, I have no idea why someone would want to wear another person’s dientes. Nevetheless, if you…

Evan Rachel Wood Looked Like A “Nerdy Hillbilly” After Getting Tooth Knocked Out On Birthday

“It was just past midnight and I was dancing with my friends in Paris and, just boom, I caught an elbow right in the left side of my face. I knew right away when I closed my mouth that something was really wrong … I was quoting ‘The Hangover’ and I went, ‘Oh my God,…

Do Not Want: A Ring You Can Sink Your Teeth Into

There’s tons of jewelry featuring teeth and fangs, we get it. But this tooth ring featuring a “genuine human tooth” in a fancified rose gold setting is a little too real for comfort. Are you supposed to brush it at night before you go to bed, too? Ack. [Loved to Death, $140]…

Beauty Blunder: Rembrandt Two-Hour Whitening Kit And Blistex Don’t Mix

Here’s something you might not know about me: I’m obsessed with white teeth. I’ve tried several at-home whitening kits from affordable Crest Whitestrips to the pricier Go Smile. But only Zoom Whitening, which I used under the care of a dentist last year, has given me the pearly whites I desired. Of course the system…

Janice Dickinson Had A Fake Teeth Fiasco At A Hamptons Restaurant

“It was the most incredulous moment that you’d never want to happen … I couldn’t find [my teeth]! Did they fall into the soup? These things are so expensive they could feed a small village. I was like Lucille Ball on crack, diving under the table like a porpoise … Age sucks. And thank God…

No Blood Sucking For You Until You Brush Your Teeth!

Holy “Twilight“-ization of pop culture, Edward Cullen! Vampires are used to sell everything nowadays — even teeth-cleaning. The UK’s National Health Service debuted a bodice-heaving, undead-themed commercial to lure toothy British dudes to the dentist. (According to Yahoo, 16- to 34-year-old men “are notoriously lax about their dental appointments.” Ack! These guys should…

Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Get Diamond Teeth Like Kanye’s (Besides The Obvious)

Kanye West has done some really stupid things. So are you surprised that he went out and had diamonds permanently drilled into his bottom teeth? OK, maybe not so surprised. But still kind of astounded by the stupidity, especially after learning from The New York Daily News that this type of cosmetic enhancement is pretty…

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Doesn’t Brush His Teeth”

I have been with my boyfriend for almost a year now, and although we are both stubborn, there aren’t many things we haven’t been able to communicate with one another. The one problem I’ve run into is an aspect of my boyfriend’s hygiene. He hardly ever brushes/takes care of his teeth. This isn’t something I…
