Because Japan is literally millennia ahead in the realm of WTF'ery, dentists in the country are now offering 'Yaeba' cosmetic treatments, a dental procedure that makes a girl's teeth appear wonky and (obviously) more desirable. But how do they feel about lazy eyes?
Yaeba means double tooth in Japanese, but it doesn't describe major dental deformities, but rather the vampire-like look obtained when the two molars crowd the canines pushing them forward to create a fang effect. According to some sources, yaeba gives girls a feline look which is apparently makes them even more attractive, while others say it's this little imperfection that makes pretty girls look more approachable as opposed to the flawless magazine cover models of the western world.
Dr. Yoko Kashiyama and her staff at the Plaisir Dental Salon, in Ginza district, perform all kinds of cosmetic procedures, but yaeba is definitely among the most popular. Using non-permanent adhesive, she glues custom-made artificial teeth onto the natural canines to lengthen them and make them stand out.
Oh man, I've got a lazy eye (I'm talking SUPER lazy -- dude's never worked a day in his life) AND wonky teeth, you think they'd find me super handsome in Japan? "No, I think they'd find you with your arm stuck in a vending machine trying to steal a pair of worn panties." God, they really would, wouldn't they?
Hit the jump for a couple more examples and a video news report of a lady getting it done.

Thanks to Daniel, who agrees one of the best ways to wonk your teeth for free is jumping off your parents' roof with a trashbag parachute. Did you live in my neighborhood growing up?
