With Halloween approaching, it is likely that you are looking into your Halloween costume. Vampire fangs become an extremely popular accessory during October. There are also many other implements for modifying your teeth for Halloween. However, it is important to know what the possible consequences of using these modifications could be.
In general, vampire fangs can be worn without problems. However, a few problems may occur from wearing vampire teeth. If the vampire teeth are made of a hard material, they can result in chipped teeth if you forget you’re wearing them and bite down too hard. Vampire fangs can also cause loose teeth to become looser.
Types of Vampire Fangs
There are also multiple kinds of vampire fangs. There are full sets that you use over your teeth. There are also the kinds of vampire fangs that only include the fangs that you adhere to the teeth. These are not recommended if you have had recent dental work, sore gums, braces, or veneers. In fact, you should generally avoid adhering anything to your teeth if you have veneers or braces. Additionally, there are options for custom made vampire fangs. These tend to be more expensive initially, but they are far less likely to cause damage to your teeth.
Vampire fangs are usually safe for your teeth. If you are choosing the best vampire teeth for your costume, you likely want a removable option that you can take out throughout the night. Prolonged use may damage your teeth. It is also important to read the instructions to determine if the fangs are reusable or should be discarded after use. If you have had recent dental work or currently have veneers or braces, you should consult with your dentist prior to using vampire fangs.
