Are you making a film or planning outfits for a photoshoot? If so, it’s important to make sure every character’s look is exactly right, even down to the teeth.
Thanks to the amazing prosthetic technology available these days, you can create incredibly realistic special effects teeth to suit any character or plot. For example, you might need bashed up teeth to depict for a character who has been in a fight or badly injured, or yellow, broken teeth for someone who doesn’t care about their personal hygiene.
Another reason you would want prosthetic teeth for your film or photoshoot might be if your characters included mythical creatures such as vampires and werewolves, which are well known for their distinctive teeth. The teeth are the most identifiable characteristics of these creatures, so it’s important to make sure that viewers will know instantly who the actor or model is dressed as.
Film teeth are surprisingly simple to create. First an impression of the artiste’s own teeth is taken, then the fake teeth can be created to fit their mouth perfectly and safely. The fake teeth will be fitted by professionals to ensure that there will be no damage to the wearer’s teeth or tissue. This is why it is important to make sure that you use a well respected and established company, who have a good reputation for their quality prosthetic teeth and standards of safety.
