UK teeth stereotype!
??? | 
Ukraine B A R V I N O K 
Hi everyone! First of all, I want to say that I like UK and this is not b8 or smth. I just wanna ask why there is the stereotype that people from UK have BAD or YELLOW teeth? What's the reason of that stereotype? Is this GENETICS or GYGIENE? P.S. Thanks for answers! Good luck!

toothbrushes and toothpaste were introduced to the UK in 2002, Before that they used guinness and tea leaf paste to clean their mouths.

They drink so much tea. Yellow teeth doesn't actually mean your hygiene is bad. It is just that some drinks make them yellow and you can't get it off unless you whiten your teeth.
2016-03-31 15:47
thanks for such a complete answer!
2016-03-31 15:48

2016-03-31 16:48

hi. u need 2 ask UK people
2016-03-31 15:47
oh thanks for the source! i will read it
2016-03-31 16:00
tl;dr More Americans pay for teeth whitening than Brits. UK had pretty bad teeth around 40 years ago and is now better than America but the joke is funny so will last for ever
2016-03-31 16:04
so in your opinion this stereotype is not true, just a joke nowadays? ok.
2016-03-31 16:07
its a fact, statistics prove this.
2016-03-31 16:46
I think Parent socialisation skills nowadays are poor and won't force upon a child to brush teeth twice a day, Just then they don't bother through out their life.

If you watch the jeremy kyle show you'll see that a bunch of them have crappy teeth, however it's mostly white trash that's on that show so it probably means that it's expensive to get your teeth fixed in the uk.
2016-03-31 15:50
so the reason is "expensiveness" in your opinion. ok. thank you for the answer!

NHS its free

Part of it is also that the countrys that call us yellow teeth are nordic, and from what i have heard in these nordic countrys part of their everyday hygiene is teeth whitening and we dont do that
2016-03-31 15:54
so you don't clean teeth everyday like people from these nordic countries? :o hmmm.. or you mean that teeth cleaning takes too much time in these countries?
2016-03-31 16:03
No we clean our teeth but they whiten their teeth from what I understand
2016-03-31 16:05
thank you! now I understood your opinion :) how many times do you usually clean your teeth per day?
2016-03-31 16:09
Twice, once after breakfast and once before bed
2016-03-31 16:43
No yellow teeth here. Tea isn't that bad for your teeth, but coffee (especially black) and red wine are. We do drink too much in this country, but USA drinks a lot of coffee so, really not sure why. Jeremy Kyle is NOT an accurate representation of the people in the UK. They only have the absolute dregs of society on there.
2016-03-31 16:00
Thanks for your opinion! Btw I never heard that red wine is so harmful for our teeth! :O

Yeah i know that's why i mentioned that it's mostly the white trash on the show which could point out that it's expensive to fix your teeth in uk. Is it expensive or is it just that they don't care?
2016-03-31 16:08
Well dental work for under 18's is free. If you need to have any teeth out, or if you need a brace fitted to straighten your teeth as a kid, it's all free. If you choose not to go to the dentist, or if your parents aren't bothered, then you're teeth may be messed up by the time you're an adult. However this is just for how they look, if you are just talking about whitening your teeth (so they could be really straight, and "clean"), whitening procedures are quite expensive but that's nothing to do with the general oral care that the NHS provides.
2016-03-31 16:27
all Europe has bad teeth
2016-03-31 16:00
Do you really think so? hmmm :/
2016-03-31 16:10

2016-03-31 16:00
yeah, that is tasty, but is this the true reason in your opinion ? :D:D:D
2016-03-31 16:11
i don't really give a shit m8 ... if they dont care about their dental higiene why should i ?
2016-03-31 16:13
okay then :D

It's just a stereotype. There are some poor and deprived areas in england where people don't take care of themselves as well as they should, but that isn't just limited to teeth: they're usually fat and smell of alcohol most of the time too (i'm not joking btw, depending on where you go in england this can be a real problem). I'm unsure if it's a wealth problem or a laziness problem, probably a mixture of both. Most people in the UK have pretty good teeth (and hygiene overall) though, imo anyway.
2016-03-31 16:22
Ok, thank you for such a complete answer! But I think there are some people in every counry, who are lazy and don't like hygiene. Why people blame only UK? :/
2016-03-31 16:25
Well it could be because it's quite widespread here. I know lazy people exist in every country, but it seems like the whole lower class of society puts zero effort into their hygiene or appearance. I guess specifically related to teeth, it could have something to do with a high percentage of people smoking or something idk. Also british people generally only care about having healthy teeth and not necessarily making them look unnaturally white through artificial whitening treatments. Personally my teeth look "white" but not as bright as someone who's had their teeth professionally whitened, and I would never consider having work done on my teeth unless I felt like they were medically in trouble, whereas plenty of people from other countries who have healthy white teeth would still go for teeth whitening treatments to make them even brighter. That's just less common here, but you could still get them done (for free too if you're under 18) if you want.
