Another Heraldic term that means the opposite of what it's “modern” usage is – in The Middle Ages, when an image on Arms or Crests were “Dented”, it meant that the teeth of the Image are of different colors. Conversely this has MANY meaning (and could also be a form of “Inside Joke” with the Awarding Sovereign and his particular Noble. “Denting” is considered rare.
