A friend received a gift of a plaster casting of teeth from her friend (who got them from her dentist after it was no longer needed).  My friend asked me if I had any ideas of what do to with them and eventually I did.  Zombie teeth!  Harvested directly out of a zombie we'll call, ummmm, oh, I don't know... Karen Chang.  After her head was properly removed, of course - all safety precautions were closely and properly observed.



Zombie lifestyle choices are hell on dentition, as you can see.



I wonder if zombies choose not to floss, because when they get their hands in their mouth they want to eat 'em?  I may never know the answer, but I can tell you from personal experience that zombie breath could peel the enamel off your own teeth, boy howdy.

Well, first off, those are just awesome. Great paint job.

Second, I am not feeling very well today, and I am kind of out of it, so when I first saw the thumbnail I thought it was a mini top hat, which I quickly realized it wasn't. But that made my creative juices start flowing and now I really want to pull out my old dental molds and make a mini top hat out of zombie teeth and fake brains.

Thank you!  I LOVE your idea!  Now I almost wish I'd suffered through the dental mold process so I could have a set (or a few) for myself. 

Your idea sounds fantastic!  If you post it when it's done feel free to pop in here and let me know so I will be sure to see it.  Smiley

Thank you!  T'was fun and pretty fast, too.

As part of the safety precautions taken by all Zombie Specimen Technicians (ZST), all foreign matter is removed from the specimen in a careful and extremely hygienic process.  There is a bit of nasty brown tartar in the inside on one of the bottom molars, though.

these are really cool!

but now all i keep thinking about is how i got my mother (a total hoarder) to throw away my grandmother's old dentures with a simple question...

"Can I have them for crafting?"

and out they went.

Thanks! I get the impression that they end up with lots of them that they don't need.

These are wonderfully creepy!!  We make mouth guards (on the side) at my job - whenever I go in the back I'm a little weirded out by all the "teeth" lying around.  I might have to quietly make off with a few sets.  Wink

Very creepy! Now add a motor and turn it into an animatronic set of jaws opening and closing!

FANTASTIC IDEA!  I have a set of these from when I got my whitening molds done!  I didn't want to chuck them out since I knew I'd regret it, and this is why!  These will look awesome in a specimen jar!

These are great! And now I feel like I can admit ... I've had plates and braces and retainers since I was ten and I probably have about six of these teeth molds that I have refused to throw out ... now I *finally* have a use for them! (See, I knew they'd come in handy some day!  Tongue) Thanks for the inspiration!  Grin

Thanks!  Having these molds is probably the best part of all the dental work (other than having straight teeth)!  I wish that I had a set that were my teeth.

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.
