How do you sharpen your teeth
On TikTok, people grind their teeth with nail files - dentists are horrified
In fact, you can learn a lot about beauty on TikTok. However, you should by no means imitate this trend!

The short video app TikTok has blossomed into a source of bizarre, but also really cool beauty tips and tricks in the last few months. Many (especially young) users feel inspired by other people's videos to try out and imitate trends. This is also what happens at the moment with an extremely strange beauty 'hack' for straight teeth.
"Maybe I'll file my vampire teeth"
The so-called #teethfilingchallenge, i.e. teeth filing challenge, is making waves and is ringing alarm bells among dentists. "I will now grind my teeth with a nail file because they are not perfect and I have a tight budget," explains user @miadio at the beginning of her video. Then she picks up the file, issues a trigger warning and begins to grind the edges of her teeth. "Maybe I'll file my vampire teeth ...", the young woman ponders aloud, whereupon she grinds her canine teeth even more angular. "Don't tell my dentist," writes user @qacerendulicc in the footer of her video, also grinding her teeth with a nail file.
Dentists warn of irreversible damage
Experts are appalled and strongly advise against copying the trend, as it can lead to irreparable damage. "Grinding your teeth with a nail file is incredibly harmful and can permanently damage tooth structure and enamel," warns the dentist Sunny Sihra in conversation with GLAMOR. "Tooth enamel does not grow back, so the damage is irreversible. Cosmetic treatment should only be carried out by a specialist with suitable, sterile instruments."
Conclusion: If you take your teeth correction into your own hands for lack of money for professional treatment, you will probably not be happy in the long term. The amateurish grinding of teeth results in damage that sooner or later has to be corrected through expensive interventions - if that is still possible. In the end, there is probably no cheaper way out.
