    Dear all,
    I dream of becoming a dentist some day... But one thing is bothering me...
    I wanted to ask to you, as dental students, feel pressure to have to have perfect teeth, e.g. perfect proportions, nice and white, a symmetrical smile etc? I think my teeth are just average, not bad but not perfect and I'm not sure about therefore whether I am the right person to one day be a dentist.

    I have multiple fillings and worse because I drank too much Irn Bru when I was younger. I'm doing fine at dental school.
    Your teeth's aesthetics shouldn't stop you from being a dentist if you want to be one.
