  1. 1

    Purchase acrylic fake nails from a retailer. Make sure the nails are white and undecorated.

  2. 2

    Choose two nails that match the size of your teeth.

  3. 3

    Wash the nails in soapy water and dry them gently.

  4. 4

    Cut the nails to form a pointy tooth shape.

  5. 5

    File the edges so they won't be too sharp in your mouth.

  6. 6

    Spread denture paste on the back of the nails and place them on your teeth. Press them on firmly to adhere the nails to your teeth.

Tips and warnings

  • Be careful when drinking and eating with the nails on your teeth, so you don't accidentally swallow one.
