‘Twilight’ fans getting $200 vampire fangs from dentists
Melbourne: ‘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," a news daily 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."
