It was considered fashionable to have one's teeth removed in one's teens or twenties and replaced with dentures. This saved the time and money required to maintain them and avoided the potential for toothaches. — Lynn ( Submit your own)

Pretty Woman, Stay A While
May 26, 1889 — Hufflepuff Common Room
The school year was coming to a close and James was soon going to be thrust into the world of the Ministry. Probably. He still wasn't quite sure what to use his NEWTs level education for. He knew he was lucky to have it but he didn't know which options to narrow down to. But the Ministry was a good, respectable job as his parents liked to drill into his head. James was certainly not going to be a pro Quidditch player or some such nonsense - it would hurt his bad arm to play as much of a demanding schedule as being a pro would require and he had mainly done so for the attention of the girls.

Speaking of girls, he was loitering in the common room when his eyes caught sight of Miss @Luce Fay-De Loncrey. Her surname was ridiculously long and she was a bit snobbish at times - but she was a vision in the common room lighting. "Good evening, Miss Fay De-Loncrey. Preparing for the Coming Out Ball?" Was she going to be a debutante or work? James always found it rather curious to see what girls chose to do what.

Did Luce even feel ready for her Hogwarts life to be over? Not in the slightest. What would she even do? Be a debutante? That sounded so dull. How did the other girls do it without being bored? Even after they got married, what could they do? People of her status couldn't very well throw many parties like the rich could. Oh, what she would give to be rich. That sounded nice.

Many thought her snobbish, especially those that knew what had happened with her mother. But she had always felt that she was to always be proper, and that she deserved a bit more than what she got. Perhaps it was all the attention from her father, or the lack of such a thing from her mother.

Looking up from her letter when addressed, she gave a polite smile. "Yes. My mother is sending some jewelry that goes with my gown, but she wants to have it cleaned and make sure nothing is damaged." The woman might not have been attentive all of the time, but she did tend to worry too much about the little things.
