dental prosthetics: White Teeth

White Teeth

Clara (Naomie Harris) loses her front teeth in this UK TV drama based on a Zadie Smith novel.

Naomie spoke feelingly of wearing the teeth:

They were horrible, and they made it really hard to speak. Normally an actor would get a chance to rehearse with them, but I didn’t get mine until the day of my first big scene. It was a nightmare.

The makeup

Sharon Martin was the makeup designer and Anita Burger was the makeup supervisor: Fangs FX provided the dental appliance worn by Naomie Harris.
