Just flash a smile

People have worn jewels in their belly buttons, nostrils and eyebrows. So it figures: The next big spot for embellishment is the teeth.

Say hello to tooth jewels.

You can have temporary tattoo-like decals attached to your teeth. Or you can go for something more permanent that the dentist bonds to the center of the tooth. Such decorations are expected to stay on about two months. You can have a choice of emeralds, rubies or diamonds. In any case, they're already a hit in Southern California. And they are certain to get you some attention or, at the least, help you start a conversation when you smile.
