    Smile Anybody has any idea of what it means?

    "Robert traveled far into rural Vietnam to make a dental impression of Vietcong, who was spying for the United States. Barron would use the impression to create a disguise for the Vietcong, who needed to travel to sensitive areas, unrecognized, on information gathering missions for the American government."

    I wonder if there's anyone who is generous enough to paraphrase this paragraph for me. According to my understanding, Robert made an impression of the Vietcong's teeth to help the Vietcong disguise himself for the missions. But I don't think it make any sense in logic. Thanks in advance.

    Your understanding is correct. The dental impression is needed to create false teeth.

    Question Re: Anybody has any idea of what it means?

    But I just wonder why the Vietcong needed to disguise himself by wearing his own teeth impression. What was the difference between the teeth impression made by Barron and the Vietcong's original teeth?

    He's not wearing his impression, he's wearing false teeth. You need teeth impression to make the false teeth fit. They're custom made.
