Yaeba - Double Teeth/Crooked Teeth

There is a Japanese blog dedicated to girls with yaeba, or "double teeth/crooked teeth". Not girls whose teeth are completely jacked up, but those who have a slight crookedness which makes them kind of cute. Apparently there is somewhat of a following for girls with yaeba in Japan. Westerners sometimes ask why so many Japanese have busted up smiles, I think Japanese people generally don't see perfect teeth as such an important sign of beauty compared to other places in the world. That being said, enjoy the pics below of girls with yaeba. The Japanese blog has one post in English explaining yaeba which can be viewed here, or click on the following link for the regular site: Yaeba Superstar Blog

American are more concerned with teeth, Japanese with eyes.

I always wondered if there was some kind of craze in that... I definitely noticed it on models! A very interesting trend indeed.

Anonymous, crooked teeth is not just a cosmetic thing though. There are jaw problems that come with overcrowding of teeth and a bad bite, which leads to medical issues.

check my post on this topic bro.
i wanna say this: The crooked teeth in adults look similar to children with baby teeth, thus the cuteness attraction. good thing this is only a small segment of people, and gladly straight teeth and the braces market is rising.

i think its because of the nuclear bombing and with the babies during that time being born disfigured. Also its genetics.

I wonder where yaeba originated from? (not the term, but the teeths)
