Cosmetic Dentistry Trends: Who Else Wants Child-like Crooked Teeth on Purpose?

The Internet is abuzz with the latest apparent cosmetic dental trend in Japan called Yaeba, where teeth are purposely made crooked so women appear more child-like.

This popular Japanese cosmetic dentistry procedure involves attaching non-permanent adhesive mini-fangs to canine teeth.

Yaeba means double tooth in Japanese and is a sought-after treatment at upscale dental salons in Tokyu’s Ginza neighborhood, where women have been flocking to have this dental procedure, according to DailyMail.com.

Dentists attribute this trend to an obsession with the Twilight series — to have fang-like a vampire teeth, although others say it is an obsession to look more child-like and the sexualization of young girls.

Not everyone sees the look as bad.

A number of actors have found their “snaggletooth” look a professional advantage. Celebrity Kirsten Dunst has commented on her own “snaggleteeth” by saying, “I love my snaggle fangs. They give me character and character is sexy.”

But will this Japanese trend jump across the ocean and on to America? Will braces become a thing of the past? That seems unlikely.

Comments on websites covering this recent trend find it difficult to fathom. Melanie from the U.K. commented on The Daily Mail article, “They look awful! I can not believe people are paying to have their teeth look so bad?!!”

And the vampire culture continues to fascinate the young.

What about you? What do you think of this trend?
