Default Cat has fangs sticking out of mouth

Is this normal for a cat? This is my friend's cat who says his fangs are an overbite. I was wondering if the fangs posed any kind of dental issue. Or perhaps this a certain kind of breed?

LOL, we also had a black cat with fangs like that. We would always say he was a vampire cat. Other than your cat here, I've never seen another besides our old cat with fangs like that. I thought they were kind of neat looking.

Yeah he named him, Kat Von Fredericksen. I told him he should join this forum, I am sure he will have lots of stories about this one.

It's not a normal bite, but it does look cute!

There's some cats at the cat sanctuary I volunteer at that have fangs like that (about four black and one orange that I can think of off the top of my head - likely more black cats simply because black cats are more common)... I think it's cute. It isn't common by a long stretch but I haven't heard that it's anything to be worried about, either.

Smokey's mouth looked like that, too. It added to his charm.

Our tabby, Louie, has front canine teeth that protrude downward more than usual. When he rubs his face/cheek on you, you can feel the tooth scraping over your clothing or skin. Our orange-guy, BooBoo, had a 'dropped fang' ... and eventually that tooth fell OUT. His issue *was* a dental issue. Boo now has no teeth, except for the tiny ones in front and maybe 2 molars on one side at the very back.

I think that look is more noticeable in black cats because of the color difference; black-fur/white-tooth.

He's a rare Miniature Saber-Toothed Panther. Once thought to be extinct, these cats are now making an amazing comeback, thanks to breeders and rescuers around the world.
