Kanye West teeth: Rapper shows off his permanent diamond and gold chompers
New York Daily News ^ | October 20th 2010, | Shari Weiss

Don't count Kanye West as an official member of the ill grill club.

His new chompers are all real - and permanent.

After tweeting a picture in July that showed the hip-hop artist had a mouth full of bling, West explained on the "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Tuesday that he actually had gold and diamonds inserted to replace his bottom of row of teeth because he "just thought the diamonds were cooler."

"I just like diamond teeth and I didn't feel like having to take them out all the time," West said.

"You've ripped all those teeth out and put in that?" Ellen asked.

"I just thought the diamonds were cooler," he replied. "There's just certain stuff that rock stars are supposed to do."

"You can't floss," Ellen quipped. "Wow, so now you just get food stuck in your diamonds!".

Daily News photo of his new smile is Getty Images so I can't post it.

Reading elsewhere it is reported the teeth cost $60,000. But in his defense you never know when you might have to bite through glass.

At least the guy will have an easy money supply once the FED inflates the dollar to toilet paper value.

You get a clear picture of just how low American society has sunk when you look at the ‘celebrities’ it reveres.

I bet that's something he didn't think of.

“What is He using for Floss?”

Degenerate’s thong, what else? (you had to ask....)

You know, I think we need to take this whole “grill” / metal / piercing thing to it’s logical conclusion.

He should just get a solid gold spike in his head.

No?

Sadly, some lowlife street punk(s) will eventually take him out to get that gold and diamonds.

Somewhere there’s a mortician who is stocking up on composite leaf and similarly sized cubic zirconia.

If someone ever punches him in the mouth and he swallows a diamond, he’d better head for a surgeon pronto!

Not knowing anything about this classless, materialistic egotist, is he one of those wrappers that made his cash by attacking the “evils” of Western civ, like greedy corporations and greedy whites and greedy plastic consumerism?

Hey, Kanye, just wait. Someone else will take them out for you all at once.

Okay, that explains it - he’s a rapper. All I ever knew about him was that he was famous for something and that his mom died during plastic surgery. Rapper = useless, classless, moronic.

All of the above, and Taylor Swift.

from a dental trivia webpage http://dtekcosmeticservice.tripod.com/id27.html:

“Mick Jagger had an emerald chip put in the middle of his upper right incisor, but people thought it was spinach. He changed it to a ruby until he got tired of people discussing the drop of blood on his tooth. Jagger finally settled on a diamond.”

I recall hearing about this in the 1970s.

Talentless attention whore. With any luck, he’ll be back working at the car wash alongside Mike Tyson within a couple of years.

It is REALLY GOING TO HURT when he gets mugged next time.

And now that the world knows what's in his mouth, I imagine that will be painfully soon.

$60,000 isn’t bad, considering one tooth extraction and implant can cost $6,000.

I had one of my lower teeth pulled and an implant put in. Cost was about 3K. It was painful. I can’t imagine just doing it for looks. I had it done because of some problems with my gums.
