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?”

Okay seriously, of course there is nothing wrong with such teeth WHEN it's natural!!!!! And these three girls are cute.
But this "organizers hope to encourage young women not blessed with overlapping fangs to take have their teeth cosmetically altered." is just sick!
How irresponsible!

irresponsible indeed, especially when those teeth are more difficult to maintain (harder to brush and all), so it's not the best and easiest way to make teeth free from disease. I had ones so I know -_-;;;
