This trope is so common that it's simply easier to list aversions, subversions and {{egregious}} examples.

This trope is so common that it's simply easier to list aversions, subversions and {{egregious}} JustForFun/{{egregious}} examples.



* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'': An {{egregious}} example is in an early episode, when the kids are showing Numbuh Three what kind of teeth she should have and they are revealed to have hideous teeth due to poor dental care. And yet, in every other shot, they have perfect teeth. Recurring villain Stickybeard averts this trope with hideous teeth due to all the candy he eats.

** One of Daenerys' military commanders (who she lusts after strongly) is noted as having at least one golden tooth in his charming smile. Whenever she is thinking sexy thoughts about him, his sexy golden tooth is usually prominent in her fantasizing. By today's standards, that tooth might make him seem thuggish or tacky, but a medieval teenager with a thing for bad boys would be more likely to see it as attractively roguish.

* Inverted in some Asian countries, where the practice of ''blackening'' the teeth with dye, was considered, not just a beauty ideal, but also prevented tooth decay. In Japan, it was called "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ohaguro ohaguro]]", and were used by married women up until the Meiji period.

Interestingly, blindingly white teeth aren't considered ideal in all cultures around the world. Natural, healthy teeth are more of a pearly off-white. In some Asian countries, teeth dyed in ''black'' was considered a beauty ideal. Artificial whitening procedures also tend to weaken the tooth enamel, making them ''less'' healthy.

Added DiffLines:

* As WebVideo/HonestTrailers pointed out, the characters of ''VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn'' all look [[NubileSavage impressively well-groomed]] for the FuturePrimitive setting they inhabit. While the narrator is more fixated on their perfectly sculpted eyebrows, their teeth are just as noticeably improbably pearly white and straight.

* And ''Series/TheGrandTour'' extends the gag from Hammond to Clarkson and May when one promo has them discuss how [[Creator/AmazonStudios Amazon]] wants them to look "more American," and Clarkson immediately points to his and May's BritishTeeth as a dead giveaway to their nationality. After a makeover, their teeth are terrifyingly Eternally Pearly-White. [[spoiler: Meanwhile, Hammond remains completely untouched.]]

* Lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'', where the Tooth Fairy and her mini-fairies can't stop squealing over how nice Jack's teeth are, with Tooth frequently prying his mouth open to admire them (to his discomfort). Jack has been technically dead and on his own for 300 years and may or may not have brushed in that time, but Tooth implies that it may just be part of who he is:
--> '''Tooth''': "Oh, they really do sparkle like freshly fallen snow!"

* Painfully averted in {{Salem}}. Mercy's friends are too young to have false teeth, and they instead have their natural teeth. Their natural, rotting, disgusting teeth.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Frontier}}'': Averted. Primarily for the European characters, it's clear that their teeth haven't profited from diets with added sugar at a time when dental hygiene wasn't really a thing of concern.
