The artist formerly known as Kanye West has gotten a new set of grills that were inspired by Jaws, one of the villains from the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me and 1979’s Moonraker.
Many on social media assumed that Ye had his teeth removed to install the new dentistry. According to a source, that’s not quite what happened. Ye had a procedure done called fixed prosthodontics where the grills, which were designed by Ye alongside his doctor and made of titanium, palladium, platinum, and other precious metals, are fixed to his teeth. Dentist Thomas Connelly, who worked with Ye on the procedure, also confirmed to Complex that the artist’s teeth are all still there. “He did not have his teeth removed,” Connelly, who has worked with other celebrities in the past, said. “He still has a full dentition. Healthy and happy.”
How much would something like that cost you ask? Reportedly $850,000.
