3 Startling Smile Ideas to Add to Your Halloween Costume

halloween-costumesRotting teeth aren’t typically  a physical trait or characteristic to be proud of. In fact, rotting teeth usually need to be removed and replaced with some sort of denture or dental implant from Dr. Nik Zalavadia. However, when it comes to Halloween time, nothing is quite as frightening as dressing up like a character with a mouth full of black teeth that look like they are about to fall out. If you really want to spice up your Halloween costume this year and get your friends, family, and coworkers creeped out, try some of these costumes below.


The Walking Dead made zombies extremely popular again a few years ago when it first came out. If you want to look really spooky this Halloween, dress up like a zombie but place a huge cosmetic emphasis on your teeth. Get some sort of black dental makeup that you can apply to your teeth and try to black them out— then, to add an additional element to it, try getting some fake blood capsules that you can place around your mouth or even near your lips to add a more realistic effect.

Austin Powers

Yes, this 1960’s based character made headlines when he came out in the 1990’s, but he is still popular amongst crowds of most ages. In order to get the best “ya baby” look, simply get a pair of false teeth that protrude from your natural lip and that have an element of black in between each individual tooth. Not famous for their dental care and hygiene, you’ll get the best British smile around that will have everyone jealous that they didn’t dress up as Sir. Austin Powers.

Stu from The Hangover

As an easy last-minute Halloween costume, consider dressing up as Stu from The Hangover this year. In order to get the full effect wear something preppy such as a golf shirt and khakis. Then, simply take some black dental wax or a pen and fill in one of your front teeth to give off the appearance that you lost a tooth.

Have fun with your teeth this Halloween and consider dressing up as one of the characters listed in this article. To learn more about your dental health or to schedule an appointment, contact Dr. Nik Zalavadia today.
