"There was a time when one old eccentric guy with a notebook could do something important to science. Now even the resources of a major university are often not enough."
Truly, William Gibson leaves no stone unturned for a more modern appearance for his characters. In Neuromancer, I think one of his characters had filed teeth. Looking for a brighter, whiter ... sharper smile? Read on.
Another novel in which implants or other forms of elective surgery result in a rather different kind of smile is Babel-17, by Samuel R. Delany. In that novel, one of the characters actually has very large teeth, implanted tusks like those of a walrus. And, since the novel is about language, this character naturally spends a lot of time speaking.
