"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."

Densaugeo[1] is a hex which causes the teeth to elongate at a grotesque, alarming rate[1]. The Shrinking Charm can be used to counteract this spell.


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

Known practicioners


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