Ohaguro (お歯黒) was the process of dying ones teeth black. Used typically by married woman, it was a sign of beauty in Japanese society up until 19th century. In order to keep the teeth black, the process be repeated once a day or once every few days. The results seem to have been permanent, as there are skeletons from the Edo period whose teeth are still black. white faces were another desirable trait during the Heian period. Unfortunately, the white makeup, which was made of rice powder, could potentially cause a person’s teeth to look yellower than they actually were. In order to overcome this problem, women painted their teeth black.
This is definitely a lot harder than it looks, I don’t love how this turned out but hey, I’m human, I’m not going to do everything perfect every time, hope you like my attempt haha
