IRVINE, CA - If you're of a certain age, social media has really just turned into photos of babies, weddings and - what usually starts it all - the ring. Ever seem like there's a battle for the biggest bling going on?

A very nontraditional couple decided to go a very nontraditional route when they got engaged. Carlee Leifkes and Lucas Unger met earlier this year in Unger's native Canada. They fell in love, he moved to California to be with her and he popped the question. But instead of having a diamond, the middle of the engagement ring had Unger's wisdom tooth.

He and Leifkes actually planned the ring and asked his dad to mail the molar, but Unger kept the final product and proposal a surprise until All Hallow's Eve.

Now the two are planning their wedding, which they're hoping will have as much bite as the engagement. (Think Vegas and Elvis.)

Cuspid, cupid ... what does it matter?
