Did any of yall see the crazy dude on "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central) who ground down all of his own teeth and replaced them with some sort of poly-fill? It was hilarious! He said he did it so his teeth would always be white and he'd never have to see a dentist. He also said the pain was so intense he nearly passed out while grinding those suckers down.
It was great... :)
