As a gap-toothed girl, I haven’t always been confident about my teeth. I begged my parents to let me get braces and constantly smiled without showing my teeth. Boys said they would date me if I didn’t have a gap between my teeth. Seriously. It wasn’t until I was about 17/18 that I stopped caring about having perfect teeth and started smiling again properly.
One night, I was at an engagement party (I was 17 at the time), and an older lady came up to me and struck up a conversation about my teeth.
Lady – “Oh dear, I used to have a gap too! I recently got it fixed and it changed my life! I’m so much more confident! When are you getting yours fixed?”
Me – “That’s nice that you feel more confident now!. I don’t want to get mine fixed though, I like it the way it is” *flashes smile*
Lady – *smile fades* “But…it’s not exactly normal. You will feel better once you get it fixed. Go see Dr Derp.”
Me – “No thank you.”
Lady – *looks at me pitifully and walks away*
Yup. That really happened. I couldn’t believe it. I understand if this lovely lady felt bad about her own teeth and wanted to change it. That’s her choice and I respect it. But she was quite persistent in asking me to change mine. Um, no I don’t think so :B.
The gap tooth look has recently come back into vogue (but for those of us who sport them, they never go out of style). I’ve done up a Gap Tooth timeline of famous spacey ladies that have graced the silver screen and catwalks.
What do you think of the gap tooth “trend”? I am seriously thinking of doing a feature on these women (and more, don’t have to be uber famous) to celebrate gapped teeth. What do you think?
