LONDON:

Actor Johnny Depp has problems with his gold teeth and they have been a constant pain for him. Depp once found a dentist’s drill bit buried in his gum, reported contactmusic.com. Depp had to wear the gold teeth for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow for the movie Pirates of the Caribbean and for its sequel. He said: “I’ve had many problems over the years with my teeth — several root canals. Once they found an eight-millimetre tip of the drill bit in one of the canals. That was horrible and it was a six-hour ordeal.” Added Depp: “The process of taking the gold teeth off can be ugly too. Sometimes it just goes ‘ding’ and it shoots off, and other times, you got to really address the issue a little more intensely.”
