I believe the trend for perfect teeth and plastic surgery was created by Hollywood. Clarke Gable is now known to have lost almost all of his teeth to an infection. At the time he lost his teeth, the only option was dentures. The trend for perfect teeth was then created, and from this the natural progression to plastic surgery. I am not American but some say it is so bad that anyone wanting to be an actor in Hollywood must appear to have prefect teeth: acting coaches will not take people without appearing to have perfect teeth. Therefore lost of wood be stars get healthy teeth removed to have a conventional dentures ( false teeth): them not having the money for implants. I do think this has gone far enough, when there are people getting normal healthy teeth removed. God knows what happens when people get cheap plastic surgery. This is a conspiracy that must end or who knows where it will end. As plastic surgery was an extension of a fashion for false teeth created by Hollywood to protect the image of Clark Gable, the next step will be amputation of legs to make someone with imperfect legs more employable as an actor.

There is also slimming, size zero models, anorexia, perfectionism all driven by the false teeth of Clarke Gable.

And you have to commend Hollywood and the dental surgeons for giving George Washington teeth too.
... right?

The trouble is the whole plastic surgery industry is based on an unobtainable ideal: after all pictures can be air brushed, and I remember how many stars were reported as being bothered when hd tv was announced; it meant their flaws could be seen. When would be stars are having healthy teeth removed to put in a denture seems wrong. If you have the money later on great, but if you don't. Like I said it will only get worse. I see eventually someone(if it hasn't happened already) will have a leg removed because it points slightly out, once this happens the trend will only increase. Like I said amputation will be the next step. The whole of Hollywood will end up as bloody cyborgs. I am bucking the trend and will keep as apparently Americans say, my English teeth.

Hollywood doesn't own the blue print for vanity, they just exemplify it.


Around 700BC, Etruscans in northern Italy made dentures out of human or other animal teeth. These deteriorated quickly but, being easy to produce, were popular until the mid 19th century.[1]

The oldest useful complete denture appeared in Japan, and has been traced to the ganjyoji temple in Kii Province, Japan.[2] It was a wooden denture made of Buxus microphylla, and used by Nakaoka Tei (–20 April 1538). This wooden denture had almost the same shape as modern dentures retained by suction. It also shaped to cover each condition of teeth loss. Wooden dentures were used in Japan up until the Meiji period.

London's Peter de la Roche is believed to be one of the first 'Operators for the Teeth', men who fashioned themselves as specialists in dental work. Often these men were professional goldsmiths, ivory turners or students of barber-surgeons.[3]

The first porcelain dentures were made around 1770 by Alexis Duchâteau. In 1791 the first British patent was granted to Nicholas Dubois De Chemant, previous assistant to Duchateau, for "De Chemant's Specification", "a composition for the purpose of making of artificial teeth either single double or in rows or in complete sets and also springs for fastening or affixing the same in a more easy and effectual manner than any hitherto discovered which said teeth may be made of any shade or colour, which they will retain for any length of time and will consequently more perfectly resemble the natural teeth." He began selling his wares in 1792 with most of his porcelain paste supplied by Wedgwood.[citation needed]

In London in 1820, Claudius Ash, a goldsmith by trade, began manufacturing high-quality porcelain dentures mounted on 18-carat gold plates. Later dentures were made of Vulcanite from the 1850s on, a form of hardened rubber (Claudius Ash’s company was the leading European manufacturer of dental Vulcanite) into which porcelain teeth were set, and then, in the 20th century, acrylic resin and other plastics.[4] In Britain in 1968 79% of those aged 65–74 had no natural teeth, by 1998 this proportion had fallen to 36%.[citation needed]

Don't get me wrong I am not bigoted against people with false teeth. After all they are one of the greatest marks of humanities inherent sophistication: as we are the only species that lives on when it has lost it's teeth.

So was Clarke Gable a unwitting cause of expenditure generally? Lots of people spend money to look good and how much of this was triggered my Clarke Gable and his false teeth.
