‘Twilight’ inspired teens are having Dracula-style fangs put in their mouths by cosmetic dentists, who charge as much as 200 dollars for what can be called ‘vampire-related services’.
According to myFOXhouston.com, Taylor Wilkins, 16, had the fangs installed at the midtown Houston office of Floss Dental.
In the clinic Dr Clint Herzog applied tooth-coloured resin to Wilkins” canines then shaped the composite into gently sloped fangs.
“It”s similar to the material that we use to bond braces on the teeth. So it can be put on and taken off very easily with no damage to the teeth,” the Daily Telegraph quoted him as saying.
The dentist, who operates five offices in Texas, says vampire veneers are in demand, especially in suburbia.
“In the areas where we have a lot of people that follow Twilight, yeah, we get a lot of calls.”
