عن عبد الله بن مسعود رضي الله عنه قال : ( لعن الله….. والمتفلجات للحسن ، المغيرات خلق الله ) رواه الشيخان

From his Companion, Abdullah bin Mas’udRasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said:

“Verily, Allah curse those who grind or file his/her teeth for aesthetic, and those who modify the creation of Allah Subhanahu Wa-Ta’Aala”

Narrated by Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim. Hadith can be found at the Book (Nailul Awtar) And The Book (Khisolul Fitr)
