False Teeth

Saturday 25 April 1719

Artificial Teeth, in the most exact Manner,
are so fitted and set in, that they may be taken out and put in again by the persons themselves, and are not to be discern’d from the natural; they not only prescrive [sic]the speech, but also secure the teeth next to them from loosening or taking out; but those who have stumps to set them on, may with the greatest security, depend upon it, that they will aswer the ends of natural teeth. By GAMALIEL VOYCE, in Whalebone-Court, at the lower end of Bartholomew-Lane in Lothbury, near the Royal Exchange.          N.B. Any persons may have whole sets at the same place.
