When White Teeth are Just WAY Too White

Tell me something…

just how white do people need to get their teeth before I have to put my sunglasses on and a thick layer of sunblock because the glare is causing me to squint as if I were standing two inches from a mouth filled with 900 watt light bulbs?

I don’t know whether you’ve noticed over the past several years, but many people seem to be either getting their teeth professionally whitened, or are using those at-home teeth whitening kits. I’ve never seen so many BRIGHT WHITE NEON teeth in all my life.

And I’m sorry, but to me it looks rather freakish because no one is even born with teeth THAT white.

Whenever I’m talking with someone who has obviously been using some kind of teeth-whitening procedure, all I do is stare at their mouth because it’s such a distraction.

Call me strange, I honestly don’t mind teeth with a tiny bit of normal staining because they look like they’ve been lived-in, not teeth that are so pristinely white it appears as though they’ve never been used.

Yes, I’m all for practicing good oral hygiene and taking care of our teeth so that they don’t end up looking overly-stained like these…

However, I find these next teeth excessive. Not only because they’re sooooooo WHITE, but also because they look too perfect…

Hell, they don’t even look like teeth, they look like piano keys…

This final photograph is an example of what I feel are reasonably white teeth because they don’t cause me to cover my eyes from blindness…

No, I’m not into 900 WATT teeth. Because quite frankly, I don’t fancy walking around all day wearing sunglasses, protecting my retina…

yes, we can laugh at ourselves when we push the limits on things that go a little to far in life. Less is more will always apply to beauty and taste for me.
