Blacking out a tooth or two adds a sinister touch to pirate, hobo and witch costumes. Black teeth also work as an alarming practical joke. Black paints and make-up items such as eyeliner may blacken your teeth short-term, but moisture in the mouth quickly dissolves markings from enamel surfaces. Using black wax is the best way to make temporary missing teeth -- the wax stays on the tooth for hours, and comes off clean.
