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?”

I had to get four teeth removed in order for braces to shift around my teeth into a "perfect smile". It has nothing to do with dental hygiene, bb.

Yea. I am ignorant about those issues because luckily I never had them in my life. Sorry for the people I offended.

I had eight teeth removed and my mouth is still pretty crowded (though straight now, thankfully.)
