An Indian student has made it into the Guinness World Record for having the world's longest tooth.

18-year-old Urvil Patel, felt embarrassed to smile because of the gigantic tooth, according to the Daily Mail.

 

Dentists who yanked out the tooth found it nearly doubled the average size, measuring at 3.67cm.

Patel beats the previous world record by just under 5mm.

Even though the tooth was extracted in February, Patel was only recently handed the title.

"The most important thing is that Urvil is looking good aesthetically and he can go out and face the world now," Dentist Dr Jaimin Patel, who operated Patel told the Daily Mail.

After the procedure, Patel has gained confidence, telling the Daily Mail he no longer has to feel ashamed.

 

The previous record holder was reportedly Loo Hui Jing whose tooth measured 3.2cm in 2009.
