Strewth, what is it about British teeth? All kids have free dental teatment and basic adult treatment is heavily subsidised. Consequently basic dental health is on average far better in the UK than in the US. However, relatively few Brits go beyong basic dental health so middle-class Brits are more likely to have teeth that are slightly uneven or less than gleaming white tham middle-class Americans. Because we're not that bothered as long as they are in good health.
