I watched Charlie and The Chocolate Factory this weekend. I had only caught bits and pieces of it previously and didn’t know there is a dental theme running throughout. It seems Willy Wonka’s dad Wilbur Wonka D.D.S. was . . . well, I guess the D.D.S. gives it away. The sign on his door says, “Wilbur Wonka D.D.S Dental Practitioner”.
It seems Wilbur (played by Christopher Lee) was quite strict with young Willy. Wilbur wouldn’t let him eat any of his Halloween candy and had the poor kid wearing some steampunk looking headgear, which leads us to Willy’s amazingly perfect, and perhaps a tad feminine, teeth.
As you can see in this photo the teeth are perfectly white, perfectly proportioned and perfectly straight, even the lowers! While I say a tad feminine that is certainly a judgment call. I showed this pic to Dr. Urban who said he thought the teeth might be veneers. He agrees that the rounded edges are a tad fem, but he also said he thought the lipstick might be the more feminine thing about his smile.
The double top secret discount (*OPPPM) for today is a big one as it’s tricky – 25% off for the first patient who posts the answer to this question. What other Johnny Depp character’s teeth have I blogged about? Here’s a hint – the teeth were not pretty. So read back through past blogs and post the reply here. Then give us a call to claim that fat discount.
*One per patient per month.
