Cosmetics should be developed (not my problem how) that color teeth. I imagine fluorescent reds, blues, greens, etc. would be popular because they would not be confused with dirty or rotton teeth. Another scenario would be coordinated teeth and nail colors. Or contrasting teeth and lip colors.
and matt finishes should be possible.
The coloring would be non-toxic and easily removable.
Variations such as mood-colors and pictures are obvious but I think unnecessary.
This idea has been mentioned as an incidental benefit or flaw of some other HB items. Also I discovered some ancient Mexicans (1325-1521 A.D.) had colored teeth. I think the idea's worth considering in its own right.
