Though it goes without saying, the Japanese aesthetic for beauty can be radically different from anything Westerns espouse to be attractive, and the growing prominence of Yaeba surgeries is proof positive.

All across Nippon, dentists are catching on and beginning to offer Yaeba alterations, a dental procedure that involves shifting the lateral incisors slightly and giving the woman's canine cuspids more prominence. The fanged, vampiric effect (pictured above) is apparently the picture of beauty according to the overwhelming majority of the Japanese public. Commentators say that the animal look is incredibly appealing and the dash of imperfection makes women more approachable and less intimidating. The procedure is temporary and uses an adhesive to lengthen the canine against the profile of the other teeth -- some patients, however, have elected to make the change permanent. What do you think, are these girls more cute than before?
