wow! thanks to everyone!'Tellin the Truth'...thank you for opening my eyes to the full picture as well. I think I will consider the braces for MYSELF :-D until then, I'm gonna keep working on that smile! First rule: everytime my hand goes up to cover my mouth, I'm gonna slap the sh!t out of it. How's that for conditioning? lol

My teeth were really crooked also. I did get braces and now I smile freely. Just know that as an adult, braces loosens your teeth to move them obviously so make sure your gums and bones in your mouth are in a healthy condition before u start. Bone disease and gum disease causes bone loss and gum loss. Braces on top of that will cause them to fall out earlier. Start with a good dentist and see if u can get braces, consultations with an orthodontist is usually free and see from there. Does not hurt to get the facts but make sure u have a good orthodontist after ur dentist gives you the go ahead. Decide if it is worth it from there. It never hurts to have the facts. With that being said, you sound self conscience about your teeth, so do it for you. Most men wont care either way except if you are more confident in the end, run with it.

I grew up getting making fun of. Back in high-school a boy called me "Sharp Tooth" and yes it hurts me really bad. I always been self-conscious about my teeths because I had one sharp tiny piglet tooth (not a good combination)with big gaps in all 5 front tooth's because one of my front tooth never grew back. One day I told myself "I'm beautiful no matter what anyone says". Plus my father tells me "Beth, your teeth are lovely. When you eat, flossing wouldn't have to be a issue." My father always turn my frown into a smile. Then all that insecure went away. Now, I'm smilingly proud and married. The fact is, I get many compliment on my smile ever since. So women smile proudly. Be confident. There your inner beauty will appeared.

thanks for the serious posts. I was hoping for a little more responses, but that's ok. I have thought about getting braces but, I'm 32 and just think that would be kinda odd lol. Any guys wanna share feelings on women with braces? One feel free to.
would not be odd at all. Had my child at ortho one day and a woman in her 60's was there with braces. Do what makes you happy.

In this county, just that u have teeth and they are clean is a big, BIG, plus. Don't worry about it too much. If they like u, its probably crooked teeth and all. Just smile

i find that im very attracted to women with one or two misaligned teeth. it almost gives them a bad girl or naughty appearance. but a bright white and straight smile is attractive too.... i dont think it makes much difference one way or another as long as theyre clean.

I like a woman that can take her teeth out. Less chance of getting bit where it hurts like hell.

Ladies, us boys don't care about your crooked teeth, the extra ten pounds you think you need to lose, or the fact that one of your boobs is a little bigger than the other. We don't care about bad hair days, a pimple, or whatever else you torment yourself about. We like girls. Period. If you're clean, happy, non-neurotic, sweet, and most importantly you like us and are good to us, then we're happy as a pig in a mudhole. Any man who gets hung up on little nitpicky crap like what I mentioned above is a loser looking for a "perfect" girl for one reason: to show off so he looks like a big shot in front of other guys. PERIOD. It has nothing to do with his high standards. It's all about his ego. Avoid men like that, they don't care about you. Like Pan said, get your braces if you want to but in the meantime SMILE BIG and don't let it bother you.:)
AMEN, AMEN, AMEN!!!!!!!!!!

Non-neurotic ? If one exists, please show me. I would pay a reward. Of course, she would have to live with me for a few months before I would pay it out. Have to really test her to make sure she is non-neurotic. Never seen or heard tell of someone that found one yet.

Ok so I have a small gap between my bottom teeth. Would this be a turn off? The rest of my teeth are straight and white.

I could say it's what's "inside" that counts but I'd be lying if I didn't say rotten teeth are a major turnoff. Seems in many cases they could be fixed yet they let them go. Why is that? I've seen many young ladies in the area who would be absolutely gorgeous if not for their teeth.

GSP_trpr, a lot of times, I think it has to do with the cost. Braces are expensive and Invisalign, even more so. That can be a huge problem.
Other women might not get them "fixed" because they don't see crooked teeth as a problem that needs fixing. They're happy with themselves the way they are and don't find a need to change their appearance in order to appeal to other people.

Missing or Rotten teeth is a deal breaker. Yuck!

But then again perfect teeth looks to fake, like you got dentures or something. Also kinda like bleach blonde hair, all women started bleaching their hair blonde for so many years, made me sick of blonde hair. Eventually going get tired of these perfect, bright white teeth and a little imperfection adds cuteness.

Imperfectly cooked teeth on a woman can be very sexy! Black meth head teeth, on the other hand, are always repulsive. More than one missing visible tooth is bad too.

Don't forget the teeth of the ones that have been on pills in general. Very attractive.
