Is it true or just a saying?

it's true - blame NHS dentists :-) or the lack of them - soon there'll be nothing for people who can't afford to go private (how long before the res of the NHS starts going the same way) we tend to be scared of going to the dentists and slack at detnal hygiene i.e brushing teeth properly etc. going by my experiances it's traditional (or at least it was in the 80's) for dentists to scare children.

Absolutely true - finding an NHS dentist is a nightmare and going private costs a fortune. A dentist told me once that the whiter your teeth are the weaker they are. He was talking about natural white teeth though - not bleached ones although I believe that bleaching weakens them as well. I'm terrified of the dentist and I'm 45. Still have all my own teeth though!

deffinately true. It's from all of them taking down all that semen in their nasty pastey faced mouths. Brits have to lear to stop drinking semen so much, men and women alike. If they didn't drink so much semen then their teeth would not be as yellow and the ghuys might get rid of that gay girly accent. By the way f**k the queen!

I thought yellowed teeth was only caused by smoking,coffee and tea stains?
