A dentist in central Alberta, Canada, has shelled out nearly $10,000 to buy a dental crown made for rock legend Elvis Presley. Michael Zuk already owns a $31,000 tooth out of the mouth of Beatles icon John Lennon. The Presley crown came to him through an auction in the United Kingdom and had previously belonged to Memphis dentist Henry Weiss.
The crown is set in a model made from a mould of Presley's mouth. It comes with a letter describing an emergency trip Weiss's son had to make to Las Vegas with a crown in 1971, because Presley had broken one. "Most of us didn't know that he had a capped front tooth. He had a smile that made women go crazy — just goes to show that some of these celebs have their weaknesses", Zuk said.
