calcified deposits on the teeth, formed by the continuous presence of dental plaque (also called calculous)
  • The date is out of such prolixity: We'll have no Cupid hoodwink'd with a scarf, Bearing a Tartar's painted bow of lath, Scaring the ladies like a crow-keeper; Nor no without-book prologue, faintly spoke After the prompter, for our entrance: But, let them measure us by what they will, We'll measure them a measure, and be gone.
    1.4 — Act 1 Scene 4 — A Street (6% in)
