Thanks~ ... and mostly I am feeling bad for my friend - it's an odd feeling - a combination of grateful, guilty, anguish all at once.

I was shocked at first to see how awful some Japanese celebs teeth were (Hyde's teeth are probably pretty decent in the range of the Japanese standard) - then my friends explained to me
1. it's frighteningly expensive to get things like braces
2. to some degree goofy teeth can be seen as cute (that has its limits though.. my one friend Kuniko told me she hated to watch this one drama because the actor's teeth were so awful )

A few of my friends are here from Japan for a year or so - and are taking advantage of all the affordable dental work for their kids..

Hyde's teeth are considered decent? *whistles* Before I saw that picture, I thought just his bottom teeth were crooked. I wonder if magazines airbrush his photos? Though now that I think about it, I've seen very few photos of Hyde smiling with teeth, so that could just be it.

Hrmm maybe they do - I figured they didn't because it doesn't seem to be a big deal to have perfectly straight teeth .. ^.~ warning ..more scary polyester prints ahead

I figure they do re-touch those pics.

OK. You know this kind of conversation WILL call for me to answer, right?
You know I'm the one geek to be unable to skip it, right?
XDDD


There is no way that those two lateral incissors can go front and back from one pic to another (except if they were fake... hahaha!) especially when the pictures with "perfect upper teeth" are older than the one with crooked ones.
(We could assume, if it were the other way around that he had gone under orthodontic treatment... although that's quite unlikely given the fact that hyde is very popular, very exposed, very vain XDDD and he wouldn't let his fans see him wearing braces. XDDD)

Another method (other than orthodontics) would be working on the front part of the tooth, so that when he smiles it looks like those teeth are straight-white-perfect-pearly-godblessed, but from the pictures above we can see nothing like this has been done (or those l.i. would be abnormally thick.)

On a side note... I can see he has fillings in his upper molars. XDDDD
Oh, and btw, since I'm at talking about teeth...
Just because the thread forces me to say this:
Magazines promoting miracle dental-work also do this kind of "picture-tweaking"; so don't believe every ad you see promoted as a wonder of science. Consult your dentist first.
I know this is so OOC, but I can't help issuing some unnecessary piece of advice here. m(_ _)m


XDDD (See????? Sometimes I can even sound pro and serious! XDDD)

Ahahaha. The fur coat cracks me up, though I love Hyde's smile in the second one. I do notice, though, that his teeth look straight in both pictures, oddly enough. Maybe it's the angle? We're not usually treated to an up-the-nose sort of camera angle most of the time...
