Asian teens wearing fake braces as status symbols

For the same reason that some people in the west are wearing blingy grillz on their teeth, some Asian teens are sporting fake braces as a status symbol. This orthodontia has flourished in Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Kids are forking over $100 for the black-market fashion braces to fool observers into thinking they can afford the authentic -- and expensive – mouthworks. Mickey Mouse and Hello Kitty are among the popular designs.
