Johnny Depp is currently entertaining his children with his Pirates Of The Caribbean character CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW's glittering golden grin - because he can't find a dentist to remove the fake gold teeth.

The actor, who is father to LILY-ROSE, 6, and JACK, 2, has finished filming the latest Pirates Of The Caribbean sequel but is still waiting for the metal caps to be taken off.

He explains, "It's for weekend appearances and kids' birthday parties.

"I'm Captain Jack Sparrow - which is what I'm sure I'm destined for.

"They're not permanent, but the dentist who does the violent scraping to get them off hasn't been available."
