I’ve written posts about Joe Biden’s teeth, so to be fair I thought it was time for me to write about Donald Trump’s teeth. I’ve been looking closely at his abundant images on the media and observing his teeth. Definitely expensive porcelain crowns, fair esthetics but dreadful color. Too white, making the teeth too prominent, too fake.
Ciro Scotti in an August 21, 2015 blog post in The Daily Beast wrote about his encounter some 15 years ago with Trump and his teeth. At that time, Scotti was at the office of a dentist he called “a fancy Upper East Side dental surgeon who specialized in cosmetic work.”
The dentist showed Scotti a set of teeth molds: “Do you know what these are?” he asked. Then answered his own question: “Donald Trump’s teeth.” The dentist said Trump would come to the office every six months or so complaining that his veneers weren’t white enough. “I tell him that if they are too white, they won’t look real,” the dentist said, “but he won’t listen. So he picks a shade, and I make them about one-quarter as white as the shade he selects, and he goes away happy.”
As they walked down the hall, the door to an examining room was open and Scotti could see the back of a famous head of hair in the dentist’s chair.
I hope this dentist informed Trump that if he continued replacing his veneers every six months, he will soon have no tooth left to veneer – crowns, root canals, extractions, implants will be in his future, if the future is not already here.
