A headline in today’s New York Times reads: “A Trend With Teeth.” The article relates that “From film to fashion, it’s a season for those whose pulses quicken at the sight of fangs.” Vampires are today’s darlings of pop culture, appearing on television, films and in novels. In “True Blood” the actress Deborah Ann Woll flashes two huge canine fangs. Then there are “New Moon”, “Twilight” and “Vampire Diaries” – all new releases with a resident vampire. Sexy? Scary?
Fortunately no one has asked me to create vampire teeth for them. A patient once asked us at our East Setauket dental office for a gold incisor – but that’s another story.
