The theme song from the 1964 James Bond movie Goldfinger is stuck in my head because I recently saw the Frasier episode in which the Cranes sing the song.
Gold body parts are on my mind for another reason. This spring I cracked a molar, which required a root canal and a crown. Because the affected tooth is the last one on my upper jaw and can’t be seen when I talk or smile, my dentist recommended a gold crown instead of a porcelain one. He was worried that I wouldn’t want a gold tooth. I think he got more worried when I asked if I could have it engraved. What?! I can’t have gold that’s not stylish!
When Lil’ Wayne gets out of jail, he and I are totes going to hang out and talk about our grills.
1) My anti-spam word is what I’m going to do after this comment. 🙂
2) Is that really the crown that’s going in your mouth? Will your initials be seen when you smile?
I, too, had a root canal, though it was because I had a nerve die under one of my teeth that had a receding gum line already… bleh. I went for a porcelain crown installed as it’s more upfront than where yours is.
That said, can’t wait to see yours soonish!
Keiko Lynn says
That is amazing!
That was such a funny Fraiser episode. So… when does the tooth go in? I think it’s so awesome that you are going to actually have a freakin’ gold tooth. Take that Madonna! Oh yeah, and another bonus — there will be no mistaking who you are when you kick the bucket!
It makes the CSIs job almost TOO easy!
That is one of my favorite Frasier episodes!
Wow. That is cool. All the better to bite them with.
Once, I had a dentist say I had a cavity (I didn’t really), but instead just replaced an old, nasty metal-looking filling. Though because the shade of the filling was different than my teeth, the new (I think porcelain) filling was still noticeable.
you can be madame goldtooth!
i don’t know who she is, so the title must be up for grabs.
i think it’s fantastic you have an engraved tooth!
Oh, WB…so sorry about upcoming dental work, but I totally love the idea of an engraved tooth or at least the look on the dentist’s face.
Grillz. Oh my…so much fun.
Thanks for the Frasier. Love that show.

For about a year and a half I’ve been wanting a gold molar pendant. Now you’ve got one in your mouth. Both delicate and crunk!
I’d make a gold molar pendant for ya!
The Owl's Closet says

Chic 'n Cheap Living says
That is insanely awesome. Shoot if it was made out of a hard gemstone, that would be even crazier(ooh sapphire or diamond sharp tooth!)
Arushi Khosla says
Fucking amazing. Haha, man oh man, Lil Wayne.
I’m glad to see your blog’s recovered! What happened to it yesterday? This is what I tried to comment:
Either I am horribly self-centred and everything I read seems to apply to myself, or you were thinking of my being insulted when wearing harem pants? Either way, I think trousers Stacey is holding up are AWESOME.
The post in question: http://prettyfaceshelpinraces.blogspot.com/2010/01/honesty-is-best-policy.html
Nope, it was more recent and definitely knickers. Though if anyone criticizes your harem pants, I’m happy to yell at him/her on your behalf.
Couture Carrie says
Holla for the grill!
That is soooo cool! I bet it will be the next big trend.
Grit and Glamour says
OMG…that is hysterical and utterly brilliant. Isn’t it fun knowing you have a monogrammed crown?! Love it.
deja pseu says
LOL, you are One. Of. A. Kind.
And that would make a great pendant.
Man, now when you spit out your gum on the street, like a classy dame you’re totally going to get picked up for littering!
Annie’s “Delicate yet crunk” comment gave me the giggles.
LMAO!! You’re hilarious 🙂 I think you’re on to something here with the engraved initials….
That would definitely make an unusual necklace! I love that you actually went and did that – you are so cool, Wendy.
Wow. That’s fancy. I didn’t think that dentists still worked with gold. Is he charging you market value? I can just see the argument with your insurance company now…
That’s fantastic!! I’ve had two gold crowns on my rear molars for over a decade but never thought to get them engraved. Yours is beyond fantastic with the engraving!! Way to represent, WB!!
I sure hope you don’t ever need another but if you do, let me know and I’ll fancy it up for you.
hahaha, cool dear!
I would engrave it too:)
you are one of a kind Wendy B. I just adore you so…
Hey Wendy, random question — what comment widget do you use? That is, how do you get that reply button after each comment? I’m trying to fix my comments so that people can reply directly to a comment, but I don’t know anything about coding (yet) and I am way too poor to pay someone to do it for me.
fashion herald says
OMG you are my hero! You and Lil’ Wayne, of course (minus the guns).
Bazaar Girl says
Lol I had to get a temporary silver crown. Gold is so much cooler 🙂
Miss Janey says
Muy stylish, as one has come to expect of Miss Wendy. Miss J has TWO of those bitches and their not nearly as cool.
Natalie / Fashion Intel says
Can you hit me up when you hang with Weezy? I want to have his baby. Thank you!
My Republic of Fashion says
Engraved gold in your tooth…haha i love it!SarahD
I guess all the pain was worth it then. You have a million dollar smile rings true. Love this! You’re fabulous!
i hope you DID get it engraved! BAH!
Dude, I did! That is my own real engraved crown. I think I”m scheduled to get it put in next week.
That is “legit” awesome.
You are so bad ass! I love it.
This is funny. Can’t wait to see what you’ve done.
Alice Olive says
You are the best! I so love your new tooth! I’d prefer white gold and dammit, I’m going to ask the next time I’m stressed and another filling/crown decides to exit the building.
That is such a great idea-your initials on a gold tooth. I’d have loved to see your dentist’s face when he heard that request!!
The Clothes Horse says
Obviously the only gold teeth worth having are engraved…I can’t believe denists don’t realize this shizz!
Pop Champagne says
LOL gold initialized tooth?! that’s baller hahaha. I’d do it 😀
Mish Dish says
This is awesome.
gold tooth? hahhaha
I am so with you, not cool at all!
oh my gosh love that you have an engraved gold tooth! now that is what I call gangster! Love!
Mind what neighborhoods you hang out in, your mouths are worth a double mugging!
when I saw the picture, I totally thought it was a new piece of jewelry you were creating! I can’t believe that it’s actually going in your mouth, I love it!!
Susan Partlan says
Awesome! Everyone should carry around a little pen light so they can look in your mouth :).
