"It wasn't a pretty sight. Hermione's front teeth — already larger than average — were now growing at an alarming rate; she was looking more and more like a beaver as they elongated, past her bottom lip, towards her chin — panic-stricken, she felt them, and let out a terrified cry."
—Description[src]

Densaugeo[1] is the incantation of a hex which causes the teeth to elongate at an alarming rate.[1]

History

During the 1988–1989 school year, this hex was taught to fifth year Defence Against the Dark Arts students by the then Professor of the subject Patricia Rakepick.[3]

Hermione Granger was hit by this hex from Draco Malfoy's wand. Draco and Harry had begun fighting in the corridor, which eventually led to a duel, but the spells they cast at each other missed and hit Hermione and Gregory Goyle instead.[4]

Known practitioners

Etymology

The incantation is derived from Latin "dens", which means "tooth", and "augeo", which translates to "increase" or "grow".
