If an adult is obviously missing front teeth does this affect your opinion of them?
No, I try not prejudge.
You call it prejudge, I call it first impression.
I always wish at those times that I was a dentist so I could help them - for free if necessary. (Honestly)
They could be a hockey player. +1 in my book
Anyone that said no os lying to themselves. Even at a subconscious level, your opinion has been altered.
Yeah, because you totally know how everyone truly feels. Get real.
I have a pretty decent understanding of human nature, and as much as I myself would like to believe my opinion does not change, I know it does.
It used to, but after working with a very nice gal who had hers missing from a car accident and not enough money for dentures, a friend having the heck beat out of her and losing a tooth, and another who had a disease that caused her teeth to fall
out, I no longer do. From my experience, it's always been out of the person's control.
I will wonder how they ended up that way but I won't think less of them because of that, shit happens.
Fuck you judgmental asswipes!
I always assume they lost them by blocking a nuclear missile from hitting an orphanage with their face!
Yes, it affects my first impression, which impacts my overall view of them.
Let's face it, the PC answer is "no, I don't pass judgement". The real answer is hell yes it affects the way I see them.
The PC version sounds more rational and mature, as usual.
Unfortunately yes. I don't think less of them or judge them but that sort of thing happens to stick in the memory and my memory doesn't always know what to do with it.
Not really. I try not to be judgemental.
Sometimes it does, but I have to remember to watch that prejudice. Dental care is expensive, and some people can't afford that. Those people aren't worse or dumber than other people, they're just in a financially bad spot probably.
If they don't fix it then yes.

If you have a denture then you've fixed it.
Be careful or I'll knock your other "tooth" out. :-)
Good. And don't let any other "explosions" happen in or near your mouth. That crap don't belong in the old Brain Housing Group.
If you have a denture to replace it then I wouldn't count that as obviously missing.
