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, $140] Keep reading »
Here’s something you might not know about me: I’m obsessed with white teeth. I’ve tried several at-home whitening kits from affordable Crest Whitestrips to the pricier Go Smile. But only Zoom Whitening, which I used under the care of a dentist last year, has given me the pearly whites I desired. Of course the system that gives the best results is pricey, so when I received a Rembrandt Two-Hour Whitening Kit in a gift bag, I thought it’d be a cost-effective way to maintain my white smile.
Here’s something else you don’t know about me: I have crazy chapped lips. I started using Blistex recently because it prevents chapped skin from forming on my lips and makes peeling off any skin easy.
But what happened when I combined the Rembrandt teeth bleach with Blistex? A painful chemical burn. Ouch! Keep reading »
“It was the most incredulous moment that you’d never want to happen … I couldn’t find [my teeth]! Did they fall into the soup? These things are so expensive they could feed a small village. I was like Lucille Ball on crack, diving under the table like a porpoise … Age sucks. And thank God my boyfriend wasn’t there.”
—Janice Dickinson, who we so wish would return for the next season on “America’s Next Top Model,” tells Page Six an amazing story about losing two false teeth while at a super shmancy restaurant in the Hamptons. In the end she found her teeth on the floor, washed them off, and popped them back her mouth. I dunno, I think her boyfriend—who is 24 years her junior—might have been amused. Maybe he would have sung a round of “All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth?” [NY Post] Keep reading »
“I’ve received one tooth from a fan. I made it into a pendant for a necklace. But now I really wanna make a fan tooth necklace to wear to an awards show. What I’m getting at is please send me your teeth. I’m dead serious. I need your teeth.”
—Ke$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 »
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 »
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 »
