I know there is "Dressed to the nines" which means to dress up flamboyantly or be dressed in extremely elegant styles. Then there is "Armed to the tooth / teeth" which means to be protected in so much armor. I hope this helps.

I've never heard of this. It doesn't make much sense either, perhaps you have mis-translated? I've heard "Dressed to the nines" (looking your best) or sometimes criminals or soldiers etc can be "Armed to the teeth" which is having as much weaponary as you can carry.
