It’s the Blockbuster phenom sweeping the nation. Eclipse, the third installment of the Twilight series, has North Texas fans going vampire gaga.
“Twilight is crazy,” said Floss Dental patient Taylor Walker. “Everyone loves it. Everyone’s going crazy over it.”
The vampire way of life made such an impression on Heath high school student Taylor Walker she came to Floss Dental in Rockwall to become more like her favorite vampire characters.
“Doctor Mary is going to put on some fangs for me,” said Walker. “Basically she takes composite and puts it on my tooth. She molds it into a point.”
They’re called vampire veneers and luckily for Taylor’s mom who agreed to today’s procedure they aren’t permanent.
“I thought she was crazy but then I found out it’s something that can be done just kind of for a costume,” said Taylor’s mother Jennifer Bean.
Taking care of Taylor’s vampire makeover is Doctor Mary Courtin. According to her it only takes around thirty minutes to create a new vampire grill and it’s completely safe.
“It’s just for fun,” said Doctor Mary Courtin. “We check her bite and make sure she can bite okay. It looks really real.”
The fangs stay in place for a few days or in some cases even a couple of weeks.
“It doesn’t bug me or anything,” said Walker. “One time I got carried away and I really liked them so I put super glue on them. I don’t suggest you do that because it’s really hard to get off.”
Walker loves her new canines plus she has an advantage over the Twilight gang of vampires. She gets the vampire look and can show them off during the daylight.
