Lip Fang (Skin-Colored Tooth)

In manga and anime, a lip fang is a cute anime fang drawn as an skin-colored indentation of the upper lip rather than as an actual tooth. It's also called skin fang, flesh fang, flesh tooth, or skin tooth.

In Japanese, the term for anime fang is yaeba 八重歯, so a way to describe the lip fang in Japanese would be hada-iro no yaeba 肌色の八重歯, "skin-colored yaeba."
