White Teeth

June 23, 2014 § Leave a comment

I have seen a few ads for teeth whitening products on TV this trip this far. Never saw them as a kid. Americans have whiter teeth on the whole than the French. My mother commented on the “Hollywood chewing-gum” white teeth smile Angelenos all seem to have when she visited. She was impressed. I don’t think she knew it was a teeth-whitening trick. Then again, though the trend might be reducing, the French tend to be heavier consumers of red wine, coffee and tobacco, all teeth stainers, than Californians so maybe  Californians don’t even need a trick.


This could bring us to discuss and compare the French  and the US attitudes towards appearance, aging, the body, and natural vs. artificial. Yes, we might get into that discussion sometime.
