Teeth jewelry is comprised of small glass crystals, made of white gold or gold jewels, that are bonded to the enamel of your teeth and made to look like sparkling diamonds. Celebrities like Pink have been seen wearing these subtle smile accessories at red carpet events. For both orthodontic and cosmetic reasons, North Americans pay thousands of dollars for orthodontic procedures that correct crooked teeth. In Japan, it can be the opposite. Young women pay roughly $400 to surgically whittle or sharpen their teeth to achieve an imperfect, almost vampire-like smile. Snaggletooth, called "yaeba" in Japan, was first publicized in 2011 and is growing in popularity. The Snaggletooth fad has even spawned a Japanese all-girl pop group named Tseuke-Yaeba 48, created by Taro Masuoka of Tokyo’s Pure Cure Dental Salon. Tattoos for your teeth, also known as "dental art," are custom decals, stains or designs made for dental crowns or any other variety of artificial teeth.
