Your central incisors (the two front upper teeth) can tell you your age. According to Carrington College, people who are younger tend to have central incisors that are rectangular with slightly rounded corners.
2. Square Front Teeth Mean You're Old
Older people's central incisors will be shorter and more square. Carrington College reports that your front teeth can become one to five millimeters shorter the older you get.
According to the Mayo Clinic, tooth loss prior to the age of 35 could be linked to Alzheimer's disease. P. gingivalis is a microbe found in the gums that has been evident in a number of Alzheimer patients who have died.
4. Teeth Can Indicate Gender
The lateral incisors (the teeth directly next to your two front teeth) can tell you the gender of a person (in lieu of other means). According to 6th Ave. Periodontics and Implant Dentistry, the lateral incisors on a male are long and square, nearly as long as the two front teeth.
5. A Gull-WIng Silhouette for the Ladies
According to Diciccio Orthodontics, a woman's lateral incisors will be shorter and more rounded than your front teeth. If you were to trace a line from the bottom of one of your front teeth to the lateral incisor directly next to it, the line would resemble the shape of a seagull's wings, which is why dentists refer to it as a "gull-wing silhouette."
6. Your Personality Lies in Your Canine Teeth
Your canine teeth lie next to your lateral incisors and give great insight in to your personality. 6th Ave. Periodontics and Implant Dentistry reports that if your canines are longer than your lateral incisors and have a point to them, you're more likely to be a very aggressive person.

7. Less Prominent, More Passive
If your canines don't show distinctively in your smile, or if the ends of them are round or flat, you most likely have a passive personality, as stated by Carrington College. Don't agree? What are you going to do about it? Yeah, that's what we thought.
Check the size of your teeth. Carrington College claims that those with tiny chompers are easily manipulated and offer little resistance in arguments and disagreements. Size can be subjective though, so just tell yourself that your teeth are big and watch your confidence grow.
9. In a Grind
Carrington College also reports that grinding your teeth is not only a sign of stress and anxiety, but it can also mean you are a highly competitive person. We bet we can grind our teeth better than you can.
