Vampire books inspire teen fangs trend

The popular Twilight book series has inspired a new trend among its young fan base: vampire-style fangs, according to a news story on

Teens are paying cosmetic dentists about $200 to get temporary vampire veneers, according to the story.

Clint Herzog, D.D.S., who has five offices in Texas, told Fox that vampire veneers are in demand, especially in suburbia.

In a 15-minute procedure, Dr. Herzog applies tooth-colored resin to his patients' canines, then shapes the composite into sloped fangs.

"It's similar to the material that we use to bond braces on the teeth," he told Fox. "So it can be put on and taken off very easily with no damage to the teeth."
