Bright white teeth are not natural and I'm pretty sure yellow teeth are stronger.

I had my teeth jet polished the other day and they look fantastic again, a nice light yellow.

My teeth are neither white nor yellow. They're brown.

I got sick of Ricky and his copeable expression and tried to change it to this one below a few days ago, but it wouldn't accept it because of the size and I'm on mobile and too lazy to edit it.

@admin or anyone who can edit it to the correct avatar size, much appreciated.

I think it expresses our bald kinship as brothers supporting each other, unique individuals in certain ways yes, but when it comes to baldness, repetitive monotonous complaints (not that they aren't understandable) in a replicated NPC way, and of course when just shaving it bro, becoming a carbon copy of every other bald NPC. Inside and out.

Is it really necessary to go to the extent of bleaching and whitening teeth? I brush my teeth daily with whitening toothpaste and that is more than enough for me.

I am planing to get braces though to fix my top row, its a bitch having to pay for braces now when i could have got them for free up until i was 18 😡

It depends on age and life style.

If you are a regular coffee or wine drinker than by your thirties your teeth will no longer be completely white - hence why many of us whiten.

If you look after your teeth and avoid many of the things cause stains then you may be okay with normal maintenance.

My teeth were stained by tea I drink about 6 or 7 cups per day, my dentist confirmed this and advised I have a jet polish.
They look great again and it was only £42, so I will just carry on drinking as much tea as I want and repeat the process, I'm genuinely addicted to it anyway.

I printed myself an NPC T-Shirt on spreadshirts.com. It came last week and I love it. I firstly wanted to make an: "Trump 2020" Shirt but I do think the NPC Shirt is a more subtle way to say: "fuck you".

I don't even think the NPC meme is remotely clever, I don't actually like it, but that's kind of the point. It's so stupidly bland yet triggers people so hard that even Twitter starts banning people for using it as an avatar because it's "dehumanizing". The reaction is what I find most hilarious.

This lame meme would have been dead a long time ago (in fact, it was, and then revived) if it wasn't for the reactions to it.

I think the NPC meme is very clever. Each to their own.

How is that clever?

The origin of the meme "joke" is that lots of people sheepishly disagree with you, it's actually one dimensional teen angst bullshit. "They don't understand me". I saw this meme a long while ago and it was generally referred as the lamest thing going, and even now it still is. I thought most people were aware of this.

The actual joke has become the reaction to it, which is incredible. Something so bland and shit could stir up such a reaction is what's hilarious, that's what the point of this is.

I'd liken it to "it's okay to be white".

If you think it's fantastic then explain why instead of just posting more pictures of it.

Every dentist I go to asks if I want my teeth whitened.

The United States definitely has an obsession with teeth, in my
opinion.

I had a friend that did it, and she said her teeth were
very weak after she had it done. In fact, she had to get
more cavities filled after doing it.

I don't see how it good be good for your teeth to break
the enamel.

I'm an American. My teeth are OK but they don't look as good as they used to. I surf the web occasionally to see what revolutionary treatments are in the FDA pipeline that will make teeth look better. The fact that I surf for the web for this kind of info even though my teeth are OK shows that the is pressure on people to have nice looking teeth, especially since my teeth aren't even bad. I will tell everyone that new breakthrough treatments for teeth are coming in about 2 years, which is about the same amount of time until a breakthrough hair loss treatment comes to market.
