Gap teeth accessories actually exist and we don't know what to think

Fashion or madness?

If you were born with gap teeth, you could look like Shrek but you were automatically considered a beautiful woman. As a matter of fact, it’s said that women with gap teeth would even receive more dowry. Might be one of those bullshit stories from back in the day but it sounds believable with all the hype they put around gap teeth. Eish.

While they are praised in Africa and other parts of the world, the Westerners have them blocked. In some Western countries, gap teeth are not really considered beautiful. People go to the dentist to have the teeth modified and the gap closed.

R&B Singer Keyshia Cole is one of the celebrities who have had her gap teeth modified to close the gap.

Now, not everyone can afford such a procedure. Dentists are expensive A.F so what do people do when one solution doesn’t cut it? They device other means such as gap teeth accessories. Instead of having your gap closed for good, you can wear an accessory and bling out your smile.

The accessories come in many different designs, shapes and sizes. I think they’re pretty cool especially for a night out. But it’s not something I’d see someone wearing as an everyday look.  Plus, in my opinion, I feel like this would only work for the youngings; campus students and teenagers; imagine a whole ass 38-year-old woman showing off her gap teeth bling? Lol, maybe I’m just hating.

Anyway, check out how the bling looks like. It has a little bit of wax so that it can't fall out.

Here are some photos of people wearing gap teeth accessories.
