Impressive Festival with ethnic identity from Vietnam dental tourism.
Since the 1910s, both men and women dyed their teeth black as a beauty symbol. Not just the Vietnamese, but the Muong, the Lu, and some other ethnic groups also follow this beauty standard.
Black-dyeing teeth also represent the old living habit and traditional dental protection of Vietnamese back then. Furthermore, it symbolizes betel chewing, one of the most ancient customs.
However, white teeth or black teeth are not as important to be reminded that “hair and tooth are human’s root” - beautiful yet essential roots in every moment of life.
Join Vietnam Dental Tourism to preserve and spread this national identity.
