Mien Yao/­Dao tribe woman (Mèo Vac, Vietnam)

The teeth covered with gold-like metal indicate that this woman is married.­ It's convenient: as soon as the woman or teenage girl smiles, you know if she is single or not! Girls from ethnic minorities (i.­e.­ tribes) marry at about 14 or 15 years of age.­

See more smiles with golden teeth!.
