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 guess people who wear braces need to wear retainer all the time isn't it?, i was legit scared looking at my teeth gaping again after forgetting to wear my retainer for couple of days.

Yeah, you're supposed to wear at least every night while you're asleep, or whenever you can is better. But I found them really uncomfortable so I didn't wear them all the time.

I have a permanent retainer for my bottom teeth but I lost the retainer for my top teeth and I'm almost positive they've shifted quite a bit :|
