Salon's clinical research into the victims of blue teeth (what David Amsden describes as extreme cases where bleached teeth "have surpassed the whole spectrum of white -- from nimbus to bone, pearl to opal -- and have turned a shade off...blue") was complicated not by lack of specimens. In fact, because of cable news ( Laurie Dhue, Brian Kilmeade, Brenda Buttner: You're lucky we decided on just one Fox correspondent) and reality TV shows (Brian H. of "Boy Meets Boy": we just couldn't find a good enough photo) there was a veritable epidemic of cases to choose from.
So we focused on the most prominent casualties and, for them, a prescription: Five black cups of coffee, a pack of Marlboro Reds and a new team of stylists to keep this from ever happening again.
