How To Make Fake Vampire Teeth?
Fangs are a necessary component of any authentic vampire appearance. Make your fangs if you have a DIY itch rather than purchasing a set from a party supply shop. You can create fangs using only a plastic straw and scissors, or you can gather a significant amount of supplies and create realistic, fitted acrylic fangs. Try using denture wax to temporarily affix faux nails to your teeth for a middle-ground solution. Unleash your inner vampire with our step-by-step guide on how to make fake vampire teeth at home. Fangs included! Let us dive in.
How to Make Fake Nail Fangs
- Purchase tooth wax and false nails. Pick a false nail color that matches your teeth as closely as possible. Some drug stores offer both tooth wax and fake nails. Dental grip or denture wax can also be used.
- Create a triangle shape with the nails. Cut a nail into a triangle form with a pair of scissors. To get a general notion of the size of the triangle, hold the nail over your teeth.
- Sharpen the nails by filing them. Make a sharp teeth shape out of each fake nail using a nail file. To capture all the debris that falls as you file, file over the newspaper.
- Apply a small amount of denture glue to the tooth’s back. Apply it gently right to your tooth. To give the glue time to set, hold the artificial nail in place over the glue for about five minutes. Continue with the other fang. Not all pharmacies carry this. Ask your dentist or try getting it online.
Use a Plastic Straw To Make Fake Vampire Teeth
- Look for a white plastic straw. The color should ideally match your teeth, although most teeth may be masked by a dazzling white plastic straw using whitening toothpaste or other techniques. The fangs can be quickly and easily detached and reattached using this technique.
- Take a small piece away. Cut off the top of the straw, just above the accordion bend, if it is a bendy straw. Otherwise, use a pair of scissors to trim off about 2 inches (5 centimeters). Alternately, place the straw’s tip over your tooth and use a mirror to measure twice as much straw as you need.
- The material is folded, then it is cut into fangs. The straw piece has been severed in half. Trim the two sides into the shape of fangs with a pair of scissors. To compare the shapes and maintain symmetry, keep them attached while you cut them. Keep your cuts away from the fold. Your tooth will be covered by that portion of the straw, thus it must be kept whole or the fang may break.
- Wear the fangs after cutting them in half. The straw piece was divided into two fangs by cutting it in half along the fold. Place these directly over your canines or the incisors on either side of your wide front teeth.
Create DIY vampire fangs: Craft a mold with a paper cup, use alginate, cast with plastic, sculpt, and finish with acrylic for realistic results!
Although it takes a lot more time and money, this approach provides you genuine vampire fangs that fit your teeth. The materials you will need to locate are listed below:
- Alginate, which is offered by several art supply stores and dentistry supply shops. (Your best bet is to use online retailers.)
- A mouth guard or paper cup.
- A different casting substance, such as plastic casting resin. Hobby stores and certain art supply outlets carry this.
- Clay for sculpture and a little tool to mold it, purchased from an art supply store.
- Purchase artificial nails (in two-part powder and liquid forms) from beauty supply stores (also available as dental acrylic).
- Vaseline, a petroleum jelly available in pharmacies
Trying Other Objects from the Household
- Make cotton balls into vampire fangs. You can quickly create fangs by trimming, shaping, and sticking wet cotton balls to your top teeth.
- Cotton swabs can be used to make vampire fangs. Cut the swabs’ cotton ends off, then use nail adhesive to fasten the remaining sticks to your teeth.
- Make non-toxic clay into vampire fangs. To fit your teeth precisely, mold the clay into a pointed cone or “fang” shape. Before utilizing the fangs as an accessory for a costume, let the clay firm.
- Apply braces wax to the areas where your braces are. If you wear braces but still desire vampire fangs, it’s really simple to do so by molding braces wax into the shape of a fang and inserting it between your canine teeth and the braces wire. Clay should be added to the wax for a more realistic appearance.
- Cut white plastic bottle into fangs. You can cut out a pair of fangs from the bottle and sew them to your teeth as long as the plastic hasn’t come into contact with anything poisonous.
Creating Basic Fork Fangs
- The fork’s two middle tines should be broken off. A white plastic fork’s two middle “teeth,” or tines, can be gradually bent forward with your fingers until they break at the base.
- Eliminate the handle. Cut away the fork’s handle in a straight line using scissors or a spotless utility knife.
- Along the fangs’ bridge, apply dental wax. Apply a tiny dab of denture wax or braces wax on the remaining piece’s horizontal bridge. Dental wax is available from several medicine stores and online dentist supply shops.
- To your upper front teeth, fasten the fangs. With the wax directed inward, attach the improvised fangs on your front teeth. To keep the wax and the plastic teeth in place, gently press. Ensure that the front of your mouth is where the fangs are located. When finished, there should be an equal amount of your two front teeth visible in between the fangs.
