Making words appear on someones teeth.

Hi,

I am in Pre-production on my next short film, at the end of the film one of the characters needs to have something written on his teeth.

The effect would only appear in 3 or 4 shots at the end of the film.

Does anyone have any ideas how this could be accomplished? Either in post or whilst shooting.

Regards

Tony Webber

It could be accomplished in post by tracking graphics to teeth features (using a compositing package like After Effects or combustion), but the best result will need come from a good deal of frustrating trial-and-error work. You're likely to achieve a much more satisfactory solution with a simple dental application of the words or a prosthesis. I'll bet if you talk to a dentist and he or she will be more than happy to advise you on how to safely achieve this effect, saving you much hassle and expense in post.
