Corvette license plate - C MY 6

"Turn toward me and open."
The small mirror was inserted into the opening provided. "You have orange teeth!" she exclaimed in amazement.
"I oo?" as a small metal instrument slides in beside the mirror.
"You have orange teeth! she exclaims again. Scrape, scrape on the tooth. "You have orange teeth...and it doesn't come off! Squirt, rinse, suction.
"I eat a pound of carrots at work."
"A pound? Is that all you eat?"
"No, that's for breaks and lunch."
The dentist greets me as she's finishing up the scraping process and I say, "What's up, Doc?" with my standard Vulcan hand wave as she says, "He has orange teeth!"
He pulls up a chair and looks. She tells him, "they're the back molars."
"They're orange! He has orange teeth!" he's surprised.
"You didn't believe me." she says. "He eats a pound of carrots every day."
"A pound? That's a lot of Beta Carotene. Can you have too much Beta Carotene?"

That's my question to you, Drs. LJ. Can you eat too much Beta Carotene? Yes, carrots are good for me but are too many carrots not so good for me?

And, in case you are wondering, they won't be able to write me up in the dental journals. The orange came off with the polishing.
