Dental company under fire for 'gross' advert showing woman with too many teeth

People on social media have spotted something very unusual about a photo shared by a dental business.

Teeth whitening company HiSmile recently posted an advert for their services on Instagram which was accompanied by a photo of a woman smiling and showing off her pearly whites.

However instead of two normal rows of teeth, the woman appears to have had a few extra ones added in.

And once you notice the strange bit of editing, you probably won't be able to unsee it.

On average an adult should have 32 teeth in their mouth, but HiSmile's photo features around 60.

They captioned the image, writing: "We'll whiten ALL your teeth. Tag a friend to trigger them."

More than 9,900 people have liked the post with thousands sharing their confusion in the comments.

One person said: "Is this an edit or something? I'm legit worried."

A second replied: "I'm returning my HiSmile if my teeth are going to look like that."

"This is gross," proclaimed someone else.

"This picture has ruined my morning," added a fourth. "The stuff of nightmares."

Another wrote: "That's not a normal set of teeth. Looks creepy."
