World’s First Snaggletooth Girl Group



You may have heard of the recent dental trend in Japan called tsuke yaeba, where women get their canines capped to get a crooked set of chompers. If so, you might have guessed that a snaggletooth girl group couldn’t be far behind, and here they are: TYB48.

Eighteen-year-olds Nana, Mio and Rika were chosen from a field of applicants recruited by a dental clinic specializing in tsuke yaeba. Girls with crooked teeth are generally thought to be cute in Japan, and with TYB48 as fashion trendsetters, organizers hope to encourage young women not blessed with overlapping fangs to take have their teeth cosmetically altered.

The group will have their debut concert in Akihabara on April 30th, and concert goers will also be able to pick up copies of their first CD, frighteningly titled “Mind If I Bite?”

So if you have good teeth, get it fixed so it's shit?! WHY.

Plus some yaeba is feckin UGLY. I have a little bit, (fangs and squished bottom row) and that's fine but some crooked teeth looks really awful.

Just get braces, god!

ikr?
I'm one of the people "not blessed with overlapping fangs". I've never had braces, yet my dentist says my teeth are all good. Well spaced teeth, no overbite/underbite. And so far, I've had one Wisdom tooth grow out naturally (as per my dentist's instruction - and there was no pain btw, just the normal sting of breaking skin, like when your adult teeth were growing out), and apparently I don't even need any of them removed. I've had a few fillings, but nothing else.

I haven't even paid to fix my teeth to make them look good (aside from small cavities), why the hell would I pay to get my teeth messed up?!
