Want Real Fangs? Ask Your Dentist

For those of you who have decided you want real vampire fangs, there are a variety of ways you can go about it, –and there are some results that might make it a little more undesirable than you had planned. We talked to a cosmetic dentist about getting real vampire fangs, and though he didn’t really condone it, being a Christian and all, he did explain the various methods you can go through to do it. In fact, he used my teeth as his demo board, –I was getting a filling. Yes, ladies, gentlemen, I actually discussed my work with my dentist; half numb, groggy, and with a stranger’s fingers in my mouth, –that’s how dedicated I am.

Do you want your fangs to be your -real- teeth? This is probably one of the least desirable, but also less expensive ways to get fangs. But it’s also the most permanent. If you can find a dentist who’ll do it, you can have your front teeth shortened and your canines filed. Keep in mind, this will take a while, and you’ll have fangs the rest of your life. So as a grandparent, you still might have fangs, –probably not conducive towards a good relationship with the little guys. The main probably with this method is just finding someone to do it for you. My dentist pretty much said this would be out of the question at his office.

The most expensive, and the second most permanent option, is to get crowns on your canines, –also known as ‘caps’. The difference between those $10 caps online, and actually getting crowns manufactured, is that you won’t be able to take these off. Furthermore, the cost will run you somewhere between $2000 to $5000, easily. It takes time and effort to expertly mold a replacement tooth. The other, easier option for getting synthetic, but real looking fangs, is using acrylic and the molding material they use to fill cavities.  It’s less expensive, but least permanent option, –the dentist may insist you see him again to have it removed eventually, so that you never accidentally swallow it.

Swallowing a filling isn’t the worst side-effect of getting fangs though. Our mouths weren’t designed by nature to carry teeth that sharp and long. There are no significant side effects in the jaw, but it is possible to develop Malloclusion; overbite, or overjet of the upper front teeth. The dentist also warned that you can expect sores on the inside of your lower lip, where your new fangs would irritate the skin. Your fangs might also irritate your low gumline; close your mouth, and notice where the tips of your canines rest, –image longer, sharper teeth poking into your gums. Fairly unpleasant, no? Be sure to discuss length, and topical, over the counter anesthetic for possible sores with your dentist before getting permanent fangs.

  6. I been dying to want this for years now! How much does this actually cost? The dentists that I have been talking to did know for exactly because they don’t do this.

      1. It’s much MUCH more than $100. A simple cleaning costs about $100, a little filling costs $250, actual cosmetic work will costs hundreds, or even in the thousands.

        1. So, three years after the original post I’ve finally got it done. For people interested: it cost me $500 per teeth and it will last for around 3 years. ;)

          1. and is there anyway that they last like forever without havingto do it like every 3 years….??????????? :/

  7. when im older im going to get fangs permanently until i grow old and look like victor from the underworld he lokks awsome like that 2 more years and ill get them yey

    1. I have been trying to get fangs. My mom HATES the idea. But my dad he is WAYYY less strict. My in the condition of my teeth right now i can’t get them:( One canine is still growing to an adult tooth, and the other 1 still needs to be pulled sooooo im kinda mad at my teeth but i want fangs badly and i know how long this is so sry.

    1. I WANT FANGS SOOOO BAD! im only 13 but by next year i will so hav thm i cant wait omg i might die!!!

    2. I really want fangs too! But sadly I am growing up in a Christian home … I’m actually a born vampire, but I chipped my fangs around 2 years ago. I NEED them back!! But thanks for the info. ^^ definitely going to get the caps on my … Dull … Chipped fangs. ( idiot dentist! I told him they needed to be sharp!!!)

  8. I’ve been wondering for a while if I could actually have my canines removed and replaced with steel fangs, I know that if you have a missing tooth you can get a fake tooth screwed into the bone so I figured the procedure would be pretty much the same

    1. vampires don’t have fangs on the bottom, it doesn’t make sense, fangs are used so you can bite through veins(they are also shaped so that blood can flow freely while the teeth are still in the flesh) so stop being a poser and get a life, also im sure you’re lying because the mouth is made so the only way you could have legitimate fangs on the bottom were if you were a massive underbite, thus making fangs on top possible

      1. Don’t insult other posters, especially when you clearly know nothing yourself. Biting through veins? Uh, you don’t need fangs to do that, veins are fragile. Plus vampires aren’t going after veins, they go after the arteries, that’s how you get lots of blood. And blood flowing while the teeth are still in? Nonsense. A vampire bites and then sucks on the wound. It’s a bit difficult to do what when the fangs are still in, you’d get blood all over the place.

        1. I agree 100% with you Moonlight. Vampires just need fangs to break the skin that normal teeth aren’t very good for.

    2. Actually…………. if your top and bottom canines are long and sharp that means that you are……….(pausing 4 dramatic effect) A WEREWOLF.

  11. What are those for ? Do you have to bite to feed yourselves, or like everybody else you buy frozen stuff and put it in the microwave ?
    Aham, that’s what i thought.
    So it’s just so people can say, ” oh my god!! he’s a vampire ! ”
    Well most people (balanced ones) will think ” wow… that’s a severe case of identity troubles. ” ( and hypocrite will say people are free to do whatever, but wont ever give you a job)
    If you’re less than 20 years old, please, wait until you are and get a nice hobbie in the meantime.
    If you are over 20… good luck with life !

    1. people with fangs, are mostly in my opinion, imature a stupid posers, but there are people who do it because it actually fits their lifestyle, i won’t go into further detail but before you judge people please look at this site http://www.vampirewebsite.net
      (but i do believe everyone on this site are posers)

        1. Dude not everyone here is a “poster” so i mean really you have your opinion but you don’t have to be a jerk about it. Maybe some ppl want to have fangs. So you don’t JUST HAVE to be so ignorant about it. WE WANT FANGS, WE LIKE VAMPIRES, DEAL W/ IT! Cause really i want fangs, and YES I act like a vampire because they are BADA$$, and I agree with moonlight. So just shut your trap!

    2. Already have a hubbie ^.^ … Well someday anyways. Welllll I do have one picked out. Steady relationship too ^.^

  12. vampires are real! i am one myself and i have proof of all things! my entire school is swarming with vampires… leave coments if urs is the same kind of school as mine please and thank you! @_@ :D=

    1. Um…prove it..? Vampires aren’t real, the ones in Twilight, Vampire Diaries…are an insult to the myth of vampires, which are in truth just blood sucking killers who don’t give a crap about humanity. So stop pretending you’re all real vampires>.> I mean, what the heck…And why aren’t you insulted by this fake fang craze, huh?:/

  13. Truth is, no one on this site has done any real research on what a true Vamp(y)ire really is, or does. Truth is, you wouldn’t know one of he/she was sitting right next to you…. muwhahahaaaa. Ordo Strigoi Vii

  14. Great Halloween stuff, if you’re rich enough to bankroll the cosmetic fangs. But folks, there really are no vampires, not now, not ever. If you like to kill people and drink their blood, you’re a psychopath. If you just wear fangs for fun, you’re a rich kid with too much time on your hands. But either way, not a vampire.
    Donate the money to a soup kitchen. Happy Halloween.

    1. Have you done your research? Drinking blood doesn’t involve biting or killing. It consensual now! But most of us are psy vamps and feed off energy. I wonder if yo knew that?

  15. I am truly disappointed, though not all that surprised, by many of the responses in this post. Firstly, I do not believe the author intended this to be a debate on the existence of Vampyre; That is a discussion that should be left to the theologians. Those who believe require no proof, and for those who do not, no proof is possible. Secondly, the level of unwarranted prejudice and slander presented by some of you, shows that ignorance, and not true ideological disagreement, fueled your words. In conclusion, it has always been that the children of Sol
    knew not what thrived in the moonlight, and I’m content to let it remain so.

  16. like I want my teeth done because I am a vampire and my teeth aren’t fully done so I need my teeth then because I still have the urge to drink but still I am a vampire so I want my teeth to be done and ready before the end of the year.

  17. I only wanted to know is because my teeth are getting alarmingly dull. Since I was little I’ve had ADHD which, when nervous, causes me to bites the insides of my cheeks and other things. Over time my teeth have worn down to the point that my canines are rounds and dull. It might start affecting how hard I have to bite into things to eat and could tire out my jaw and give me migraines. So has your dentist ever heard about I guess teeth restoration?
