When did political leaders first start showing their teeth in official photographs?

This is a question that occurred to me as I was looking at Wikipedia's list of Vice Presidents of the United States to try to answer a question I had about former Vice Presidents who run for the presidency.Most of these VPs are not smiling at all, and it seems that only a hint of a smile seemed consistent with the exercise of political power. They look grumpy to us today, but presumably the idea was to look completely serious. We expect smiles now. The emergence of teeth comes in 1953 with Richa...

"I know a guy — he collects unemployment even though he’s employed — who just had his teeth veneered bright white, with ceramic laminates."

"I ran into him recently, and he dropped to his knees to coo over how my puppy has grown. As he went to kiss her freckled nose, he flashed his crocodile smile. That same week, I heard from another guy — last I knew, he was a real mess, drove his marriage off a cliff, with his kids in the back seat — letting me know he’s now a life coach and focus counselor. He wants to help me live my best life and was offering me a 20 percent discount."I just think it's funny that those are the first 5 sentence...

My drug-infused idea of the plot for a book.

Okay, so here's the idea I had while absorbing nitrous oxide and waiting for the novocaine to kick in just before my dentist extracted my upper left wisdom tooth. The topic of discussion was whether some people wanted to take their tooth with them, and I heard that some people want it because there's a gold crown. They want their gold. What, do they take it to some dealer for cash? It was mentioned that the tooth has the person's DNA. So I was picturing some gold dealer's shop with a store of go...

Whitening Sensitive Teeth at Home with Smile Brilliant

For almost a decade, my heart has longed for white teeth. Unfortunately, I was a barista from 19-24, which means I have probably consumed a tanker full of coffee in my lifetime. My daily Americanos and Trenta ice coffees have caught up to me and my poor teeth. What used to be a lovely “ egg shell white” now would probably be closer to “canary yellow” in color. I have tried a couple of different “whitening” tricks, and I will be frank, quitting coffee is not one of them (nor will it ever be, bec...

These babies with adult teeth looks very weird

What the hell is this? Well, it's "Babies With Teeth." From PetaPixel: The project is the brainchild of Texas photographer Ashley Evans, and it all started while she was playing around in an app called YouApp. “I had an app and wanted to see what my son looked like with teeth,” Evans tells PetaPixel. “It was hilarious so I did it to my daughter. I then posted in a Facebook group and it just blew up from there.” Many of the images are accompanied by captions that adultize the babies, but ...
