Do you find diastema (gap between teeth) a turn-on or turn-off?

I don't want to fuck either Alfred E. Neuman or Madonna.

But any port in a storm.

On that young man, yes.

by Anonymousreply 303/24/2021

I think it makes people look incredibly stupid.

by Anonymousreply 403/24/2021

I assume that most people with this gap keep it by choice. It can be fixed well enough through bonding for only a few hundred bucks

by Anonymousreply 503/24/2021

A definite turn-on

by Anonymousreply 603/24/2021

It works on some people and less on others, like everything, OP.

It makes him look like a 12 year old.

i had an ex with this and it made him hotter

He has a beautiful white trash face and the elegant neck of a ballet dancer.

by Anonymousreply 1103/24/2021

Please, it’s called a diastema.

by Anonymousreply 1203/24/2021

Total turn-off.

But an even worse turn-off is something else I see more frequently than I ever would have imagined. I don't know what it's called, so I just call it "peg-teeth"... the teeth are all the same size (ish) and have spaces on both sides. Like little pegs instead of actual teeth. It kinda freaks me out, but I've seen it quite a bit. There was this hot guy I saw in some eastern european gay porn that looked so hot... then he smiled with his peg-teeth and it was just creepy. Almost like baby teeth. Bleh.

by Anonymousreply 1303/24/2021

In some ways, I think, the decision to not have it fixed reflects a certain self-confidence.

It alone wouldn't make an attractive guy unattractive but it is very distracting, it draws your eyes to that gap. I have seen guys who have had it fixed and they look much better without the gap.

Some of the most unfortunate mouths I have seen are those with a too-large upper jaw. I can't explain it, but it creates a weird look and the mouth doesn't close naturally all the way. I assume to fix it would involve some kind of surgery

by Anonymousreply 2503/24/2021

One of my exes had a gap in his front teeth and it made him sexy as fuck. He used to spit through it wich never failed to make me die laughing. I swear he could hit a bottle cap at 10 yards ,that gap gave him deadly accurate aim ! I hadnt thought of him in years,thanks for reminding me Op !

Primarily thicc bottom boy Will Braun has it and it makes him extra sexy.

Too-perfect teeth can be off-putting

by Anonymousreply 3103/25/2021

r16 I think you're right about the distracting aspect of it. I think if it's smaller (a la Madonna), it can complement an overall aesthetic. If it's larger, then it does draw one's attention away from other parts of the face.

by Anonymousreply 3203/26/2021

When I was growing up in the more ignorant 50s & 60s many people took any sort of physical difference in people's bodies as a sign of poor family genetics. The tooth gap was considered by some a low class birth defect, along with having a hair lip (cleft palate). or squinty eyes.

Personally I don't find it particularly attractive, but it certainly wouldn't turn me off someone.

by Anonymousreply 3303/26/2021

If the guy is handsome I find it adds character and makes him sexier as he obviously is confident enough not to get it fixed. If it’s just an average Joe then it tends not to be attractive.

by Anonymousreply 3403/26/2021

Turn on!

by Anonymousreply 3503/26/2021

If it's too wide it looks like the person is missing a tooth, and that is off putting. Bobbi Christina Brown had one of those wide gaps and it really detracted from her looks IMO. With their money I can't fathom why they never had her teeth fixed.

Mmmmmm not that bad. After awhile you'd forget about the teeth. Perfect looking teeth (those over done white veneer jobs) look a bit too unnatural.

by Anonymousreply 3703/26/2021

R16 - Zac Efron has also had a nosejob and chin implant.

Most tooth gaps look good on people who are already beautiful. Fill it in and you can appreciate the beauty - otherwise it's way too distracting. It's all you can focus on.

by Anonymousreply 3803/26/2021

Interestingly, most of the people I've known with a diastema between the front teeth have been Italian/Italian American

by Anonymousreply 3903/27/2021

r36 in a lot of photos, she's smiling with her mouth closed. I wonder if she was self-conscious about the gap

I find it unappealing. It gives people a childlike look, as though they've recently lost their baby teeth and their adult ones are just coming in.

It's a matter of degree I think r50

by Anonymousreply 5103/28/2021

Also, this thread reminds me of the "things that are acceptable if you're attractive" thread(s). I think a diastema falls into that category

This is no doubt a case of confirmation bias, but I feel like diastemas are more common among people with African ancestry. Also, I've known several Italian Americans with this condition. (And don't forget Ms. Ciccone.) I think it runs in families.

On the other hand, I don't think I've ever known a person of East Asian descent with a considerable diastema between the front teeth (and I lived in East Asia for a bit). But again, this is very likely confirmation bias, and I wasn't looking for it either.
