Do you have a "toothy smile"?

I do! I've always smiled that way, and my 17 month old does too!

It seems like most of the people I encounter don't smile with their teeth showing. Do YOU have a toothy smile, or do you prefer to keep your mouth closed while smiling?

  • I do now. Growing up I had very crooked teeth and then, thanks to cancer, my teeth rotted and broke and I didn't have the money to get them fixed. Three years ago I got dentures and now I smile big toothy smiles. I look so much happier in photos.

  • YES! Always! I've tried to tell my Mother on occasion that she looks mean because she never smiles. She always hides her teeth (which are straight and white) for some reason. It looks like she is faking or being an @ss.

  • I keep my mouth closed. I've never had braces, and though mine aren't horribley crooked (mostly more crowded than anything), they aren't great and people still make me feel like crap for it so I smile as little as possible.
