My mom used to have one gold tooth during her teen years but when it became no longer fashionable here, she removed it , after more than 25 years .

I've always hear it was a sign of money, looks odd though, I think. :) I love the thought of you sneaking around snapping away. :)

That was in fact quite common in Western Europe and the US not so very many years ago - let us say before WW2. It still fairly common in certain parts of the world.

In the west we show off by glueing small diamonds to the teeth or bleaching them beyond any reasonable colour that ever existed for teeth.

Not crazy about gold teeth. Would rather have it around my neck or finger.
Great photos though.

When we visited Russia we saw many gold bedecked mouths. Below a certain age, however, the fashion did not seem to be accepted. Or perhaps the skill of Russian dentists improved when those younger folks came along.
