Russian man gets picture of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin engraved on his teeth
The dental patient was having new porcelain crowns and veneers done at the surgery in Sochi, Russia, but wanted something ''extra special''.
Dentist Levchenko Lev offered to engrave the man's initials, letters, or his own signature on his gnashers.
But the patient stunned staff when he asked for portraits of the US President and Russian leader Vladimir Putin to mark their first conversation since being inaugurated.
The work cost more than £2,000
The patient was actively interested in whether you can make the image of Putin and Trump at the crowns
Levchenko Lev, who runs Levchenko Lev Studio Dental, said they had to draft in a professional artist for the work – which cost more than £2,000.
He said: ''During the discussion with the patient's unique capabilities in the manufacture of dental restorations, I offered to do the initials, letters, or my signature on their own work.
''The patient was actively interested in whether you can make the image of Putin and Trump at the crowns.
The engraving is to mark the two world leader's first conversation since Mr Trump's inauguration

"I called the artist to clarify whether it is possible to make such small figures clearly, and met with the artist.''
The local painter used a fine brush on the crowns which were then glazed and baked in a dental furnace.
They were then fitted onto the teeth of the patient, who wanted to share his new dental work but asked Levchenko not to be identified.
Levchenko said the patient was ''delighted'' with his unique teeth art.
