    imo smiling makes you seem friendlier, more positive, more approachable, easier to get on with, and generally more attractive.
    even if your teeth are horrendous.
    perhaps post a pic of your smile so people could be honest?
    I will PM you a pic. Dont feel comfotable sticking it on this thread.

    I think people worry too much :P:

    as long as you're teeth don't look like this:

    Yummy :yep:. I'd like to know how this man got to that stage? Poor him.

    Lol, well obviously there are some limits. I often feel concious about my smile. I seem to slightly get a dimple on the left side which isn't cool on a guy. :mad: My teeth aren't the whitest of teeth but i like my teeth more since having braces. Having braces makes a huge difference.

    But how bad were your teeth before braces?

    1) That pic is utterly horrible, I now feel really quite sick.

    2) Crooked teeth wouldn't worry me, but really yellow/unbrushed teeth and bad breath really would.

    Not to bad except the top part i had on the sides the canine teeth i think they are called, slight growing over the other teeth. So i had a molar from each side pulled out so they could be pulled in line with the others. By i was self conscious everytime i opened my mouth. It was kind of like having dracular teeth and they were uncomfortable to bite with.

    Yeah bad breath is one thing nobody likes. Teeth for me don't have to be perfect but if a girl has bad breath...that just doesn't work for me.

    Hmm I'm normally quite picky about teeth, and if a guy that I liked was smiling, it'd obviously make me feel more comfortable. Unless you were incredibly hot, then you could probably get away with the broodiness (I don't think that's a word lol)

    That said, if you didn't show your teeth when you smile, you must show it when you laugh. The guy I like doesn't have the nicest smile I know. Actually probably the worst, but I love it when he laughs, gives me little butterflies:p:

    I don't really smile much, so I get the whole unapproachable thing too. I have nice teeth, but apparently have a mischievous grin. Which probably scares people too lol.

    Lol, nah i've heard girls say they like dimples so your not alone but i hate having it. I don't mind when a girl has dimples though. Just, i kind of find it makes me feel less masculin. Other that though i dont worry much.

    I dislike bad teeth sorry!

    But I also dislike men :p:
    I have to agree - bad teeth personally is a turn off for me. I know I shouldn't judge on the nashers, but its one thing that I gawp at first in a bloke.

    I have horrible teeth! I have 6 teeth missing due to faulty genes. one of those is right next to my upper bigg teeth, and on the other side of my big teeth i have a sorta tiny, thin fang. My bottom theeth look normal though and are straight after 3 years of braces. I have had temporary prosthetic ones in the past but dont right now so have massive gaps. Allthough it bothers me, alot of fit guys have said they dont care. I suppose it depends on how you looka as a whole. It hasnt put alot of people off me so im sure girls will be the same. Looks are important but I wouldnt judge someone on their teeth.
