Hampstead Heath is now the most commonly used rhyming slang for teeth, having taken over from Hounslow Heath which was a pre-1900s expression.

Normally shortened to Hampsteads (or sometimes even Hamps).

Hampstead Heath itself is a 790 acre area of parkland, hillside and woodland, with spectacular views across the city of London.
