A teenager had to learn to embrace her new front denture quickly - when a golf club's blacklight left her looking like Ross Geller from Friends with her fake tooth glowing 'like a torch'.
Megan Maunsell had her damaged front tooth removed just three days before visiting the club with her boyfriend last month and still felt self-conscious about her new denture.
However her new feature got an unexpected showing off when the blacklight made it glow blue - leaving Megan and her boyfriend in stitches. Well, if you don't laugh, you'll cry.
Rather than let the surprise get her down, the 19-year-old instead decided to picture herself embracing the denture and showing it off to the camera.
The radiant tooth even drew comparisons to Friends' iconic episode where Ross Geller's own white teeth are lit up by a date's blacklight.
Megan, from East Grinstead in West Sussex, said: "It was a luminous blue and it lit up against the rest of my teeth. It wasn't my most graceful moment but hey-ho. I don't know if other people [around me] noticed but I'm pretty sure they did.
"At first people were looking at me because I was laughing loudly and after that I realised, shit, actually they're probably looking at me because I've got a torch in my mouth.
"A few people at work have said that I looked like Ross from Friends. I've only seen [the comparison] since I posted the video online and people have commented on it.
"When I was on the golf course I was wetting myself laughing. I was like 'oh my God is this actually happening?'.
"Then just after I was on FaceTime to my mum and that was when she said 'can you imagine if all the family with false teeth were there?'.
"A lot of my family have got false teeth so we would be like a little gang with our teeth glowing on the course. I just laughed about it, laughed it off and then forgot about it.
"I don't think my family would go because they wouldn't want people knowing they've got false teeth. But I enjoyed it."
Megan had been playing golf at Globalls in Brighton, East Sussex, with her boyfriend of three years Kieran Allen, 25, in January when she had the hilarious realisation.
The care worker had been forced to have her tooth removed after a series of horse riding accidents killed the nerve and left her at risk of abscesses and infection.
She had been mortified at having a denture when she was so young, but the hilarious realisation on the golf course helped Megan to take it in her stride.
Megan said: "It's helped me embrace my denture. If I didn't laugh about it I probably would be down, I wouldn't want to go out.
"I had horses when I was younger and I had a lot of riding accidents. For some reason I was unlucky and always fell on my face but there was no damage to my teeth.
"Then I got pain in my tooth last year and I went to see my dentist at Christmas time. Because of the damage to my tooth over the years the nerve in my tooth had just died.
"She said eventually it will go black and get abscesses and infections. She told me I could either leave it and wait for that to happen or I could have it taken out. I think for me it was a really daunting thing at first because I am only 19.
"I've got a full on plate - I've got a denture that falls out and drops out. I've sneezed it out. To have that at 19 at first I was like, 'oh my God'. Whereas now I just try and make light of it."
