My teeth aren’t straight. My two front teeth are crooked and there’s a gap between them. They are also not brilliant white. I don’t know how movie stars have such whiter than white teeth. I brush my teeth three times a day but they’ll never be white. I’ve lost a lot of my teeth. That happens when you get old. I’m looking forward to getting a pair of false teeth. I’ll buy a sparkling set of dentures. When I smile, I’ll look like a million dollars. People say a good set of teeth will make you more successful in life. I wonder if that’s true.
