OK! I’m off on another rant! So, be forewarned!
Have you noticed that lately, while watching American TV shows (as in USA shows>>> Yes, yes, I know: South America, Central America, Canada…) it has gotten to look like all of the actors are competing on who got the whitest veneers? (I think that is the name for those things. It’s either that or luminaries, sort of like crowns, but I believe a whole lot more expensive!) Right when you see an actor open his mouth, with the whiter than white teeth, an actress smiles and you see a dozen miniature flashbulbs go off!
Am I the only one who finds these “dazzling-est of dazzling” teeth distracting?!? It has gotten to a point where even the actors who are playing street people, upon opening their mouths, sport their dentists’ over-zealous whitening techniques.
I’m not advocating that we stop using “All-Whitening Crest/Colgate,” but really… is a blindingly bright snow-scape what we are now going for? I mean, just how white is white?
Oh well, I guess that if I was able to get used to anorexic actresses who are “top heavy,” I will soon get used to these new developments in our society. Oh, Brave New World….
