* ''Series/RedDwarf'', above, named this trope in honor of The Osmonds, a family music group known for, among other things, their happy smiles. And at seven core members, that's a lot of teeth.

* When Magicians (read: Demon Summoners) in David Eddings' ''Literature/TheBelgariad'' and ''{{Malloreon}}'' summon their demons, they try to outdo each other by making their demons look as menacing as possible. One common area of embellishment is in the mouth, where they try to cram as many teeth as possible inside. It should also be noted that these imaginary forms are also the way they keep demons under control. A demon in his (uncontrollable) true form is terrifying in itself, but for other reasons.

If they aren't satisfied with the number of teeth they can get that way, they may also go the "multiple mouths" route, to allow them more space for more teeth. A few even go for multiple faces, for more room for more tooth-filled mouths. It should also be noted that these imaginary forms are also the way they keep demons under control.
