I don’t know why a gap between the front teeth is so endearing, but I assume it’s something to do with evoking babies. I can’t resist a gap-toothed smile. It’s only fair that Johnny Depp got the gappest-toothed woman in the world.
My BFF has a gap, and I’d ask my dentist to give me one if I thought he’d cooperate.
Is Brigitte Bardot the modern prototype, or was there someone before her?? (The Wife of Bath doesn’t count.)
