* Joked about in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' DVD commentary (the one with Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan, aka "Merry and Pippin"). When commenting on the scene of Smeagol turning into Gollum, including a close-up of him devouring a fish with his mangled teeth, Dominic and Billy (who are British and Scottish, respectively) joke that Andy used his real teeth and nails for that scene, then claiming that Scotsmen have perfect teeth used for eating haggis and biting the ends of kilts.

* [[Music/{{Queen}} Freddie Mercury]] had terrible teeth and knew it. However, even once he had the money to fix them, he refused out of concern that it might affect his singing voice.

* ''Series/{{Frasier}}''. In "Rdwrer", Daphne is upset at businesses sending Christmas cards ''after'' Christmas.
-->'''Daphne:''' Bloody hell! Five days after Christmas is over and I'm still getting these cards! They do it on purpose, you know. It's always from someone you forgot, and then it's too late to send one back, then they sneer at you for the rest of the year! ''(reads card)'' "Peace and Goodwill," my ass! You just lost yourself a customer, Dr. Naran S. Gupta, D.D.S.! \\
'''Martin:''' ''(sarcastic)'' Losing a set of English teeth, he'll feel that!

* The titular character from ''SaladFingers''. The appearance of his teeth actually varies from frame to frame - sharp, tiny, huge, missing etc. - but they are always ugly, yellow and somewhat crooked. Of course, Salad Fingers' nationality isn't known for sure to be British, but he is from a British flash series and has a British accent.

* In the ''{{Sealab 2021}}'' episode "Let 'Em Eat Corn", Captain Shanks gets his hands on some nukes from two British guys in exchange for paying to have their dreadful teeth fixed.
* British Kyle of ''FanboyAndChumChum'' has large buck teeth as well as braces. Though it's not as if the non-British titular duo has perfect teeth...

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]].

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

* WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack's ally the Scotsman has a ''really'' bad tooth decay problem, visible whenever he smiles. (Which he tends to do ''a lot'' more often [[PerpetualFrowner than Jack]].)
