Men are more attracted to women’s teeth than their hair

Study says good teeth turn men on the most.

A recent study conducted by online dating site Match.com found that a woman’s teeth are the most important dating factor for men.

According to USA Today, teeth rank in the top spot in a list of the top ten things men judge women on. After teeth, good grammar is the second-most important aspect of looks, followed by good hair. 

The findings are a result of a national survey of over 5,000 single adults ages 21 and up.

And it’s not just men who find a killer smile important. 71 percent of women also rate teeth as the biggest turn-on, followed by good grammar as the No. 2 most important thing (same as men).

So it appears that men and women agree on something, at least!

Tell us: What do you think of these findings, do you think teeth are that important?

If a woman has a great body, great eyes, great hair - would a man still be turned off if she has yellow teeth?  I don't  think so.  Besides, she could  go to Walmart & get some White Strips for that...

Obvious from the comments how FAR OFF this article is from the truth.  T/A and body is the first thing guys look at, and for a lot of women, it's the wallet -- i.e., the clothes, the shoes, the car, etc.  They don't like to admit it, but any half-way decent guy in a sharp suit getting out of a $100K or more car will turn most women's heads -- put the same guy in a pair of dirty jeans getting off a bus, and he won't get a second look. 

 

It's just biology -- sex is a priority for men; security is a priority for women.

While good teeth are a plus, I find the over-whitened, over-exposed teeth as shown in the illustration in this article a turnoff. I have seen people who have bleached their teeth to the point they look like chalk. Not good.

Give me a break.

As the owner of a pair of very full double Ds since I was about 14 (a long time now), I know it was never my teeth that men found interesting. This article must have been funded by the American Dental Association!
