It should be noted that this stereotype is quite offensive. If you're American, and talking to a British person, don't make jokes about their teeth [[BewareTheNiceOnes if you fancy keeping yours]].

Also note that this is a ''national'' trope, not an ethnic trope - a plurality of Americans being mostly or partially of British descent.

The reason for Britain's more lax standards on dental beauty are probably related to the National Health Service (NHS). Dentistry is the only part of the socialised healthcare system where the British people are expected to pay the costs of at least some of the work. British people tend to resent having to pay anything at all, leaving cosmetic dental care lower on their order of priorities than in other countries. As far as actual dental health goes, [[http://www.economist.com/research/articlesBySubject/displaystory.cfm?subjectid=7933596&story_id=15060097 a 2009 study by the OECD]] found the UK to have some of the industrialized world's better dental health, ahead of the United States overall.
