The comments, stories and links have helped. Do you shun imperfect smiles? It is a matter of personal taste whether or not to get them. We are where we are. I don't think that I would choose not to date someone simply because of their teeth. These have no effect on your teeth and will help you preserve your teeth. When I first met my husband-to-be, he had some pretty heinous dental issues. We also share the bacteria in our bodies, and the healthy bacteria can boost our immune systems.
He was decent looking, had a great job with lots of money and good benefits and very intelligent, though a tad more serious than I usually like. Very handsome, gorgeous blue eyes, ass to kill for, but two 90% eaten-away-by-decay front teeth. I've experienced braces, so maybe I'm more sympathetic. I'm just happy you found someone finally. Present yourself with confidence and a sincere smile and no one will pay attention to things such as bad teeth. My biggest regret is not getting braces in my younger years and being so naive to not realising I had a problem. And, of course, there's a domino effect--go too long with some kind of replacement and other teeth in the mouth shift, and gums often get in bad shape.
I don't know why he didn't get them fixed. From what I understand, Invisalign can handle a variety of cases and situations. Almost like they have plastic teeth. In fact, someone who tries to argue me into liking him has inadvertently discovered one of my dealbreakers. Both the spacing of your teeth and the health of your teeth and gums can be inherited.
I like to see how teeth and mouths move when people talk. God forbid he gets an infection in his mouth. Do you find that sexy or repulsive, or doesn't matter either way? Years of neglect while playing video games and being lazy have screwed me up. Its always been mistaken in the past that because teeth were not white or perfectly straight that they were not clean. Most people I knew as a kid had crooked teeth to some degree, although a lot of these people also got braces.
People at risk for cavities usually are those who drink a number of sugary drinks, have poor dental hygiene, dry mouth, possibly heartburn disease, or do not have fluoridated water. I have a small mouth and dentists told my mom I would need a few out to make room. My sister is a dental hygienist and is scrupulous in her own dental self-care, but we both have had to get tooth replacements because of inherited patterns of tooth loss. And there goes that tooth. I have to admit I prefer nice, mostly straight teeth, but I can't imagine rejecting a man outright just for his teeth. I make zero apologies for it.
How can you make your own mouth more kissable? So I got a crown. Anyway, trust me, most people are aware and some are paralyzed with the issue due to economics, how ever, some people like my brother havento hygiene. Although orthodontists can be expensive, you might be able to fix issues with orthodontic procedures, such as braces, clear aligners, or retainers. Filler stuff was put in, but by the time I met him it was badly chipped. If he likes me That Way and I like him That Way, too? Almost like they have plastic teeth. I knew at that point I was never going to be interested in him irl.
It's highly costly to really get rid of them. I never noticed that many people especially young people with teeth looking like they're ready to snap—until I moved to Hooterville. So anyway, as long as your teeth are clean and relatively healthy not ready to snap off with the next crisp apple , then as far as I'm concerned, you're fine. I used to have teeth like that. Its weird but strangely fascinating to me. I think dental bleaching has gotten out of hand. Last year, I went to an orthodontist for an Invisalign consultation.
Or, if you are attracted to men, take for example ignoring the fact that he's English. What about a big gap in the front? I brushed religiously through high school, and still lost one tooth to some weird anomaly by the time I was 20, and had to have a root canal when I was still in grade school and that tooth eventually disintegrated anyway. Learn not to project your insecurities forward, and be the parts of yourself that you do like first, and you can be an interesting date. Just wait until a time that you and him are alone. Kissing is a learned skill and something you have to relearn a little with each new person.
Do you shun imperfect smiles? He makes self deprecating jokes about it, as well. They can take a tooth out and I won't even know they've done it. Anyway, I don't think I'd care as long as it's not a huge gap. Everyone talks about having confidence in dating. You need to keep the good versus the bad bacteria in your mouth at a healthy level.

Wait till your lips meet and just leave it at the lips. My fat body is a dealbreaker for many people. And take a break when you need one. My friend describes therapy as having a coach for your psyche—it sounds like you could use that right now. Who would be so trivial?
