I’ve only been in this country for three months, but already have had twice that many people make jokes about my “Bristish Teeth”. Are American’s just born with perfect teeth or do they all have their teeth re-done at a certain age? I’ll admit to being shocked by the impertinence.

I will apologize for the behavior you experienced. No, American’s aren’t born with perfect teeth. They tend to be more meticulous about aesthetics with their smiles, but that’s about it.
More Americans use cosmetic dentistry than British citizens typically do, but that is a cultural more than hygienic issue.
If you’re looking into cosmetic options. Porcelain veneers are the most flexible procedure. It can change the shape, size, and color of your teeth.
