Kanye West’s Diamond Dental Work

Kanye West is topping his giant gold jewelry display at the BET Awards earlier this summer with a doozy of a diamond statement. According to his recent ‘tweets’, the self-proclaimed king of hip-hop has replaced his lower teeth with, um, diamonds. (And apparently his cerebral cortex with Play-doh).

This isn’t your run-of-the-mill diamond grill a la Lil Wayne, folks. When asked by his Twitterati if he was for real, he came back with this:

“No seriously … I said my teeth are real diamonds… these are not fronts… I replaced my bottom row of teeth with diamonds.”

These are his twitpics to prove it!

It seems bling is back in a big way for Kanye – but will the world care? Maybe he should just stick to peeving off pop stars? What do you guys think of his icy move?

Diamond dust cleans teeth! We know it sounds crazy, but it’s true. At the New York Center for Cosmetic Dentistry (NYCCD), Dr. Emanuel Layliev uses actual diamond dust as a “mild abrasive” before teeth whitening. The diamond dust is included in a paste and then applied with an electronic toothbrush.

So how does it work? Dr. Layliev explains diamond dust “gently cleans the pores of the tooth enamel, allowing the bleaching process to work more effectively.”
After the diamond dust application, Dr. Layliev uses the Philips Zoom whitening treatment, lightening teeth under a bleaching lamp. The entire diamond dust QuickWhite treatment costs $250.
A handful of celebrities including Kim Cattrall, Usher, Tom Brady, and Hugh Jackman, are known to frequent NYCCD, and you have to admit that their teeth are all pretty perfect.
