Indonesia Teeth Chiseling

The tribe women of Indonesia believe that they are more beautiful if they have their teeth chiseled into sharp points, but not only does it make them more beautiful, it maintains the proper balance between body and soul.

These women undergo a very painful procedure to have their teeth chiseled without the use of any anesthetics. They bite on green bananas to help dull the pain, but for the most part, they feel every ounce of it.

Crude and simple instruments are used to chisel the teeth into points, but in the end, the women are proud of their sharp smile.
