Whitney Houston Teeth

Whitney Houston's drug abuse cost her teeth according to Tina Brown, Bobby Brown's sister, who stated that Whitney wore false teeth.

"She loses them in the house and when she’s out on drug binges," Tina was quoted as saying in 2006. "They cost $6000 and the dentist has to keep FedEx’ing her a new set."

After Whitney Houston's death, it was proved that Tina Brown was right about that... The coroner's report revealed that Houston wore dentures. It has to be noted that this is relatively common among long-term drug abusers. Habitual use of drugs such as crack, cocaine, which contains acidic chemicals, will lead to the wearing down of the tooth's pulpy tissue over time. Tooth decay can also be the result of vomiting and tooth grinding, which is common among drug and alcohol abusers.  

It has to be mentioned that Whitney Houston made three visits to the doctor in the week prior to her death, but the trips had no illicit purpose. To be exact, Whitney had a sore throat and got her teeth whitened.

Whitney was also scheduled to film a commercial for her sister-in-law's candle line, so she went to a dentist twice to get her teeth whitened and cleaned.
