* All of the Zombies in ''Literature/ParadiseRot'' have sparkling, artificial Pearly Whites, so much so that this becomes one of their nicknames. But what do you expect from people who have lived for hundreds of years and need to use them to crack skulls.

* ''Literature/{{Frankenstein}}'': FrankensteinsMonster had "pearly white teeth", because Frankenstein deliberately built him out of attractive parts in hopes of creating as perfect a specimen as possible, but instead the overall effect is UncannyValley.

* The Penguin in ''BatmanReturns'' has narrow, sharpened teeth that are more like fangs, and they are a dingy dark yellow in color. In other media, the Penguin usually has white teeth - but they are usually vaguely crooked or misaligned in order to make him look sinister.

The other side of this trope, however, is to commonly present people in the past as all having rotten, disgusting teeth due to their primitive oral hygiene. This is very much TruthInTelevision -- for ''some'' time periods and regions, but not for always and everywhere. [[RealityIsUnrealistic In reality]], the rate of dental caries was rather low in the oldest time periods; even though the people may have spent much less time cleaning their teeth, they suffered less from tooth decay than we would expect today because their diets didn't have nearly as much tooth-rotting sugar. The big turn for the worse, at least when talking about European cultures, happened during TheHighMiddleAges. See the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dental_caries#History Other Wiki]] for more details.
