A question about Wolverine...

I'm not sure how many of you are X-Men fans, but in the hopes that a few of you might be, I'm posting this here.

I woke up this morning with a rather strange question in my head. "If the adamantium was bonded to Wolverine's skeleton, why aren't his teeth silver-colored?"

Any theories?

HA! On a site about movie mistakes, that was listed. It may be a simple overlooked idea. Who knows. I pondered that same question in my mind for a while before giving up on it. :P

Well I'm glad other people besides myself are thinking about it. But I'm pretty sure his teeth are white in the original comics as well, so it's technically not a "movie" mistake.

Hmmm. Well, teeth aren't actually bones, so maybe that's why?

I'm reasoning that it's this: teeth aren't internal but external bones. Ergo when the adamantium bonded to his skeleton, it didn't go through his gums, and didn't touch his teeth.

Man...just imagine how inconvenient it would've been if his teeth were adamantium, too. Constantly sparking off of each other...

However, there is a major movie mistake in Wolverine: Origins that I picked up on when watching the movie the second time around (with you and Anthony and Phil and Eric). In the scene where they fuse the adamantium to his skeleton, you see a shot of his skull. Every single bone in the skull has adamantium attached to it.....including the teeth!

They aren't? I thought they were bones... I had thought it was just a Hollywood thing, with the perfect, straight white teeth. :P :)
