Day 22: Smile 101

We all have things that bug us out, but wanna know what really gets under my skin? The thing that grinds my gears and drives me bonkers? Bad teeth! And not just any bad teeth... I'm talking about celebs that have tons of money and the access to world class dentists, yet due to whatever reason insist on having their mouths resemble a highway pile up. More specifically, those that have neglected bottom rows that look like urban warfare.

Some of the top offenders of this are Matt Lauer and Will Ferrell. Those 2 have bottom rows that give Jaws a run for his money... they're awful! I don't understand why people that have the $ to perfect their smiles consistently avoid the dentist. It's not enough to have a nice top row... when you're speaking people can focus on the bottom as well.

Sometimes you can't just smile with your eyes you actually need to rely on, well... your smile! If you're looking for something to splurge on why not start with your mouth. There's no better investment than your grill.

I have a thing about teeth too! The rappers kill me, but they are finally stepping up there teeth game. I was told by a caucasian dentist that caucasians generally have bad teeth and require lots of dental care outside the normal scope of dentistry. Maybe that's why coupled with the fear some people have of dentist.

love this!

i was one of those kids whose parents didn't think to teach great oral hygiene.
as an adult,
i've had to fix this
and it's been pricey.
i had to get over my fear of the dentist and drilling.
four root canals and a root scaling will do that to you! lol

even though my dental office knows me by name because of the frequency of my visits,
it's good to know i'm fixing the problem.
after some fillings,
then a year of braces,
i'll be good to go!

@ Janelle - Don't feel bad. Growing up I hated flossing and have had to pay for this as an adult too! I've had 2 root canals and tons of fillings... but guess what? It's better than having NO teeth! lol...

@ GorgeousPuddin - I haven't heard that about white folks in general, but I know in England they're known to have bad teeth. The lack of dental insurance coupled with all that damn tea! lol...

@ Alisha - That's a nice problem to have... my teeth are too white! lol... I've been using Crest 3D and it's a pretty amazing toothpaste. I can try and get my smile as bright as yours!
