International media have been reporting on the hottest beauty trend in Japan and it might surprise you. It’s called ‘Yaeba’ which means ‘double tooth’ in Japanese. It’s a very popular cosmetic procedure that actually accentuates women’s canine teeth by elongating them. According to fans of the procedure, it makes them seem more approachable in addition to looking more youthful, even childlike.
According to the New York Daily News, some Japanese men reportedly find crooked teeth endearing and attractive. For others, this slight imperfection makes beautiful women more approachable, reports Oddity Central. Blogs celebrate yaeba and Asian celebrities eagerly smile for cameras to show off their protruding canines.
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. At Dental Salon Plaisir, the dentists glue artificial canines onto the patients’ real teeth. Since the salon uses temporary adhesive, the transformation is not permanent.
As you can imagine, there are many critics of the procedure with medical professionals concerned about the quest for youthful regardless of the cost or health risks. What do you think of this latest beauty trend? Is ‘yaeba’ taking the quest for a more youthful appearance too far?
