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 must, you can find it on — where else? — Etsy. [$180, Etsy] Keep reading »

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, I look like a nerdy hillbilly!’ But the person that did it was crying because they felt so bad … I’ll never forget my 24th birthday when my tooth got punched out. For a second I was like, it would be really hilarious if I sold it on eBay. But I can’t, that’s just too creepy. I don’t think I can go there.”

Evan Rachel Wood tells reporters at the Venice Film Festival about losing her tooth while dancing at her birthday party. Apparently, she has already gotten a fake tooth to replace the busted one, but we kind of wish she’d pulled a Tara Reid and glued it back into place before continuing the partying.

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] Keep reading »

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 that gives the best results is pricey, so when I received a Rembrandt Two-Hour Whitening Kit in a gift bag, I thought it’d be a cost-effective way to maintain my white smile.

Here’s something else you don’t know about me: I have crazy chapped lips. I started using Blistex recently because it prevents chapped skin from forming on my lips and makes peeling off any skin easy.

But what happened when I combined the Rembrandt teeth bleach with Blistex? A painful chemical burn. Ouch! Keep reading »

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 my boyfriend wasn’t there.”

Janice Dickinson, who we so wish would return for the next season on “America’s Next Top Model,” tells Page Six an amazing story about losing two false teeth while at a super shmancy restaurant in the Hamptons. In the end she found her teeth on the floor, washed them off, and popped them back her mouth. I dunno, I think her boyfriend—who is 24 years her junior—might have been amused. Maybe he would have sung a round of “All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth?” [NY Post] Keep reading »

Ke$ha Wants To Wear Your Teeth On A Necklace. You Know, To Go With Her Mom’s Placenta.

“I’ve received one tooth from a fan. I made it into a pendant for a necklace. But now I really wanna make a fan tooth necklace to wear to an awards show. What I’m getting at is please send me your teeth. I’m dead serious. I need your teeth.”

Ke$ha tweeting a call-out to her fans yesterday to send them their teeth. Well, I think maybe I have an old baby incisor around here somewhere?

Interestingly enough, this is not the first time Ke$ha has talked about her, uh, unusual jewelry. Keep reading »

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 come with warning labels.) As much as I think vampires are over, this ad is super-clever, no? [Yahoo] Keep reading »

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 risky. For starters, it’s not so healthy (ya think?) and one dentist says: “Diamonds are very hard, and this hard surface should not be used on the biting side of a tooth … Since diamonds are harder than your teeth, you will wind up breaking or wearing down your other teeth, causing you to need more dental work.” What else? Bleeding gums (gross). And if you choose to get the diamonds drilled directly into your teeth (as apposed to using a strong glue), and something goes wrong with the tooth, then you have the added cost of replacing the tooth and the diamond (assuming you still want it there).

Our question is … what credible dentists are actually doing this to people? [New York Daily News] Keep reading »

Kanye West Flashes His New Diamond And Gold Grin


The “Kanye West Is A Talented, But Idiotic Douche” file is getting full! Yesterday, the rapper appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ show and proudly showed off his new blingin’ smile. Apparently, that ain’t no temporary grill — Kanye claims to have had his bottom row of teeth removed and replaced with diamond and gold implants because that’s “what rock stars are supposed to do.” Dude, you do know that pricey grin will still get food stuck in it from time to time, right?

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 would ever end the relationship over, but I have a few issues with it. First off, I don’t know how to even begin to discuss it without sounding like his mother. Every time I have brought it up, he has explicitly told me that it is extremely damaging to his self-esteem. I’m not one who is overly concerned with the “appearance,” but he has had serious problems with his teeth already, and the fact that he gets defensive about it hurts me. I’m not expecting him to do this for me, but I know if he doesn’t do something about it it will get really bad for him down the line, and it is very hard for me to just sit back and watch. Is this something I should just let his mom nag him over, and I should remain silent? Or is there a better way to approach it without hurting his feelings (although I don’t even know that’s possible)? — Orally Fixated
