Vampire makeup is all about the fangs. As a modern-day Drac, you may have used up the adhesive or dental putty that came with your fake fangs, or perhaps you simply found it doesn't work well for you. Dental adherent or adhesive, used to "glue" dentures to a wearer's gums, is effective and widely available in paste form in pharmacies and the dental section of most stores.
Things You'll Need
- False fangs, individual or full set
- Soap and water
- Paper towel
- Dental adhesive
Stopper the sink so you don't lose a fang down the drain. Wash your fangs in soap and water, then rinse thoroughly. Dry the fangs with a piece of gauze or a clean paper towel. Rinse your mouth to moisten and to remove food particles.
Open the tube of adhesive and squeeze a small amount onto a paper towel. Use a toothpick to place a spot of adhesive inside or on the back of an individual fang. Don't work on more than one fang at a time -- if you do, the adhesive may dry before you can attach the fang to your tooth. If you're applying the full-set fangs, dot the adhesive within the entire gum of the set. Use sparingly. Too much adhesive can cause oozing and create a less effective bond.
Fit one fang over the appropriate tooth and hold in place for a few seconds. When it's secure, apply adhesive to the next fang and position against the appropriate tooth. For full-set fangs, fit them over your teeth and gently bite down for about five seconds.
