A dentist has purchased an unusual bit of Elvis memorabilia – a porcelain crown that covered a gap in the King’s teeth and the plaster mold used to make it. “He had nice teeth,” said Dr. Jim McCarthy, 58. “From a dentist’s point of view, I find it interesting.”
McCarthy received the crown this week from the son of the dentist who made it. The crown came with affidavits from the dentist’s family and a signed letter from Elvis’ manager, Joe Esposito. Lewis Weiss, 59, said Elvis Presley lived next door to his grandmother in Memphis. His father, Henry Weiss was the Presley family dentist.
