Glittering grills for girls

At my high school prom it was all about the dress or the tuxedo, maybe a rented car--but that was long ago and far away.
No longer just for rappers and street toughs, gold teeth have gone to the girls. For prom or a day in the park, girls from the Bay Area to the Bayou to the Bronx are accessorizing their smiles. Bay Area makers of the removable mouthwear say teenage girls are the fastest-growing segment of their customer base.
According to the SF Chronicle, gold teeth have become the latest teen fad. I was just getting used to pink hair, tatoos and nose rings.
