Crooked teeth: the new sexy!

A new fashion trend in Japan is turning the world upside down when it comes to the vision of perfect teeth that most of us have as a procedure called ‘Yaeba’ is becoming increasingly popular. It involves fitting caps to ordinary teeth for a deliberately juvenile – or ‘youthful’, as the wearers prefer to call it – look. The imperfection of crooked teeth is said to add to sex appeal, making a woman appear more approachable though some have concerns that it is sexualizing a childlike look… Girls have increasingly flocked to dental salons for yaeba. The cosmetic fad is the most sought-after procedure provided by Dental Salon Plaisir in Tokyo's Ginza district.”

Reminds me of that time I heard Japanese were putting in donut-shaped botox on their forehead! A bit weird for my liking.

I just think we need to be happy with what we were given! Is crooked teeth is all we have to worry about then we're pretty lucky

I have nothing against crooked teeth but wouldn't purposefully make them so. I have a lot of problems with my teeth due to medication so my main concern is keeping them pain free. The procedure seems a bit of a waste to me, but each to their own.

Haha oh my goodness this is ridiculous! But then again, its there teeth they can do what they want I guess...I wonder how it became a trend?

Nothing against crooked teeth...but can't say I would go out of my way to get them made crooked...surely that would create medical problems...such as crossbite?
