Grills are removable covers, made up of silver, gold, or metals encrusted with jewels, that snap over the wearer’s teeth. Wearing gold and diamonds as dental jewelry has a centuries-long history. Step back in time with us to discover the origins of mouth bling.
Archaeologists found documentation of around 20 sets of teeth woven with delicate golden wire that was about the size of a thick rubber band. The earliest of these artifacts date back to the seventh century BC. Rich Etruscan women were the first group of people to wear what we would now call grills.
Recently, various celebrities have garnered the media’s attention with their grills. In 2005, hip-hop artist Nelly revived the dental trend with his number one single, “Grillz”. Rapper Kanye West revealed diamond-encrusted bottom teeth while on Ellen DeGeneres’ show in 2010. To everyone’s shock, he insisted that, no, they weren’t like grills, but they replaced his bottom teeth. At the time, Entertainment Weekly called up an expert to weigh in on his claim. The short answer: yes and no; most likely, gold and diamonds didn’t actually replace his teeth, but rather his natural teeth were trimmed and used as a base to support a dental bridge. Another rapper, Lil Wayne, divulged on Jimmy Kimmel’s show that his bejeweled smile cost him over $150,000! Singer Rihanna was fitted in 2011 with removable gold grills for her “You Da One” music video. And in 2012, swimmer Ryan Lochte sported patriotic grills at the London Olympics.
