Johnny Depp is sporting an impressive set of gold teeth - because he forgot to have them removed when filming wrapped on his new film PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN.

The actor had the gold teeth added for his pirate role in the blockbuster movie, but he was so keen to get back to his home in Paris, France, when shooting finished, he dashed off without getting the choppers removed.

He says, "I meant to have them taken off but I left Los Angeles immediately after I finished the film and I forgot to take them off. I'll have them taken off next week (ends27JUN03)."

He admits he wasn't too keen to return to a dentist - he had a painful root canal operation while he was filming the project.
