Most Notable Celebrities with Diamond Teeth
While diamond teeth may seem obscure and ridiculous to the mass population, but to some celebrities it’s a sign of wealth, power, and status. These diamond implants and ‘grillz’ can cost these celebrities quite a fortune. It is not uncommon for a ‘grill’ to cost $150,000. In fact, some can cost upwards of $500,000, depending on what customizations are requested.
Here is a list of the most famous diamond teeth:
Kanye had his whole lower jaw replaced with diamond teeth. While some celebrities simply have ‘grillz’ of diamonds custom fitted to place over their natural teeth, Kanye took it took it to the next step and actually had these diamonds implanted into his jaw. Kanye attributes this decision to something rockstars are supposed to do.
The singer P!nk had a diamonds implanted into a few of her teeth. The procedure was estimated to cost around $2,000 per diamond. She has since had her diamonds removed after reportedly swallowing one after it fell out of her tooth.
Lil Wayne’s ‘grill’ is the most embellished of this group. He, like Kanye, also had these diamonds implanted. He requested these be permanently implanted because he has bad teeth anyway from a sweet tooth. Although, that may not have helped seeing as he has needed 8 root canals since having diamond teeth. His ‘grill’ reportedly set him back $150,000. Lil Wayne has also told press that he brushes these precious gems with Colgate toothpaste every day.
Believe it or not, Madonna actually belongs to the diamond-teeth club as well. Madonna posted pictures to her Instagram account showing off her 24-diamond, solid-gold ‘grill’ as well.
Paul Wall has become so attached to diamond ‘grillz’, that he actually started a business creating custom ‘grillz’ for people. These grills can be simply gold with no extra embellishments, or they can be all diamond, which would run the customer around $100,000.
