What about Hugh Grant, though?

His awful teeth totally distract me the whole time I'm trying to watch the movie.

Mark Hedberg was a funny guy. I think his death was drug related.

I think many Americans are obsessive about their teeth, esp. if they do not measure up to what they see on tv, print and in the movies. I know that even on dating sites, people will say that the potential "mate" must have good teeth! It did begin with caps and veneers, but ever since the "whitening" process was invented, we have been "sold a bill of goods" that this is what teeth should look like. I think they should be clean with no stains on them or have cavaties or even be MISSSING! but not the freaky whiteness that would scare the bejesus out of anyone in a blacklight!

I know many European countries aren't or haven't been as fanatical about their teeth as we are for various reasons, and the British have always been stereotyped about having bad teeth. But, I have to be honest though, for when I am in Serbia, I do find it distressing to see so many with poor/rotten/ missing teeth. I think that happened, though due to all the war years and then having no money for the dentist. I know, too, that they didn't even have dental hygenists and no one even knew the term when I lived there is 2007 as dentists cleaned the teeth. But maybe things have changed as I see now that they are even having their folk singers and such whiten what they have and my friends have told me that whitening strips are now being sold there. SO, maybe it is changing in all of Europe as well.

But getting back to the TOO white color, aren't teeth called at times our "ivories" due to that being the name of some animals' teeth?? And with that, I think they should be more ivory in color.

PS. I adored Cher before she got her teeth "fixed" as well as Katherine Heigle. They were part of their identities.

Perfect bleached teeth are right down surreal to me! either that or I'm an odd ball for seeing it that way.

A lot of the Eastern European countries need to learn about early dental care and preventative care. Their using white strips as adults on already deteriorated teeth won't fix anything.

Yes, but when I say that (and no on dating sites), I don't mean full of caps and veneers. Foreign bodies on teeth actually gross me out because they are another place for bacteria to congregate.

I just mean your regular teeth aren't brown and missing and coated with tartar or cigarette/coffee stains.
