Mind the Gap // Famous Split Teeth

image via here

When I was in my teens, among Grunge music, Nirvana, Dr. Martens and Beverly Hills 90210 TV series , a "good-for-your-health" trend had hit on us that mostly affected our parents and then eventually us, kids... The teeth braces... If your teeth were slightly uneven or split or both, then your parents would rush you to the special dentist (orthodontist), willing to pay a small fortune to make your smile healthier (and prettier).



Just think about it... What could add up to your teen horrible daily life of not recognizing yourself when looking into the mirror, with pimples all over your face and body, while realizing that you need to bathe every-single-day because weird odors are coming out of you and hair are growing on awkward places? Well, of course! Those things on your teeth that don't allow you to speak, eat or kiss properly! Of course, there were some cases that really needed the braces, but these are not the subject of this post.  

Although I had slightly uneven and split teeth, I thought of it as something very brutal, so my mom and I decided not to go for it. No regrets! And I can show you why:

Brigitte Bardot


Lauren Hutton

Madonna

Vanessa Paradis

Anna Paquin

Lara Stone

Georgia May Jagger

Lindsey Wixson

See what I mean? Those ladies still look gorgeous even though their teeth might be split and uneven, don't you are agree?


"If you're lucky enough to have something that makes you different from everyone else... then don't EVER change." -Taylor Swift

P.S. I am not suggesting that, anyone with severe problem, should not fix it by all means! Besides, I am not a specialist or dentist to say who should or shouldn't.

Thank you so much for reading,

I've always loved this look....most of the ladies you chose actually stand out because of their split teeth:) It's good you didn't go for the fix.

Oh I loved this post so much because I have split teeth and I've never gotten them "fixed". I started liking them when I saw Lara Stone for the first time and I realized you can be a model and beautiful and have gapped teeth... so maybe I was beautiful too!
And who DOESN'T want to look like Brigitte Bardot?!
Lovely post, Hun!
It encouraged me a whole lot!

Hi! I really love seeing girls with gaped teeth. So beautiful. I have a little bit of a gap myself, but not as glorious as these.
