Though Kylie Jenner isn’t known for wide, toothy smiles, she gave a glimpse of her gold fronts during a New York Fashion Week event in 2015. She sat front row at the Phillip Lim show, where she rocked a gold grill. She shared even more snaps of herself and her friend Justine Skye on Instagram.
The hip-hop artist wears his custom sets of grills proudly. Jonathan Rakhsha of Toronto Grillz is the creative genius behind this gleaming set. He trained as a goldsmith and jeweler and started his company while he was still in college. He specializes in gold teeth, like those on A$AP Rocky, but also creates more elaborate jewel-encrusted designs.
Khloe Kardashian doesn’t shy away from sparkle or the spotlight. She showed off her diamond-encrusted gold grill in several photo shoots. The shimmer didn’t stop on her teeth either. In some photos with photographer Mike Rosenthal, she added a swipe of golden lip color to make even more of a statement.
David Arquette is one of the more unexpected names on this list. He flaunted his two gold teeth at the Bootsy Bellows nightclub in West Hollywood in 2014. The actor added the temporary bling to cover up cracks and breaks on his front teeth. So it seems there was a bit more function behind his choice to add shiny gold to his smile.
Cyrus has worn grills a couple times. She wore a glitzy mouthpiece at a Myspace launch event in Los Angeles on June 12, 2013. The new accessory only enhanced her edgy look, which also featured her signature cropped ‘do and bold red lipstick. You have to look closely to see the subtle gold grill on her bottom teeth, but it’s still quite the statement.
Rita Ora debuted her flashy grill out on the streets of London in October 2013. Though the flashy teeth are captivating in their own right, the British singer added to the look with a black-and-white fur ensemble and additional eye-catching gold accessories.
Katy Perry wore a stunning leopard-print Emanuel Ungaro dress and Anita Ko earrings to the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, but her loudest accessory was squarely in her mouth. She wasn’t afraid to show her teeth or let out a “roar” at the awards on Aug. 25, 2013. Her multi-colored bejeweled mouthpiece spelled out the name of her new single, “Roar.”
Rihanna is known for having a million dollar smile. Her grin got even brighter with a large, shiny gold grill. Her grill is unique, as it’s shaped like a gun. She showed off her new mouthpiece on Instagram, sharing an up-close-and-personal shot of her latest accessory. French jewelry designer Dolly Cohen created the custom AK-47 gleaming in the singer’s mouth.
Madonna has reinvented herself and her look so many times that nothing is truly surprising anymore. Madge can pull off just about anything and likely has at least once. The Material Girl tried a new of-the-moment accessory in 2013. Her grin was extra sparkly at the Hard Candy Fitness center in Rome in this photo captured on Aug. 21, 2013.
Ryan Lochte must have been optimistic about his chances in the London Summer Olympics in 2012. He came prepared with an American flag-inspired grill. Former rapper Paul Wall designed the diamond-encrusted mouthpiece that’s reportedly valued at around $25,000. His big smile revealed the diamond dental work on July 28, 2012, after he won the gold in the Men’s 400m Individual Medley
Brooke Hogan, Hulk Hogan’s daughter, was the lucky recipient of the Choice Grill Award at the 8th Annual Teen Choice Awards in 2006. Simpson gave her the surfboard prize. Naturally, Hogan rocked a bejeweled mouthpiece in order to accept it in style. Check out that big, shining smile. She managed to beat out Flavor Flav, Mike Jones, Kelis, Nelly and Paul Wall.
Nelly embraced the grill trend so much he even wrote a Grammy-nominated song all about them entitled “Grillz.” The song also included contributions from Paul Wall and Ali & Gipp. Nelly wore a matching set of glimmering grills for an appearance on MTV’s Total Request Live in 2005.
The British model and actress added some metal to her famous mouth in 2014. She encouraged her millions of Instagram followers to try out a grill for themselves with the caption, “Have you got yours? #P6 #vogue @voguemagazine @alexanderwangny grillz by @dollycohen.”
Dolly Cohen, the designer of many famous grills, created a completely custom piece for Delevingne. It features her name emblazoned in gold.
More Dolly Cohen creations graced the famous faces of Jay-Z and Beyoncé in their Apeshit video. You can see his subtle, barely-there bling covering one tooth.
When Nicki Minaj dipped her toe into dazzled dental accessories, she opted for a minimalist look. Her silver grill hugs one top tooth. It’s barely visible unless you look very closely when she smiles. This simple accessory shows designer Dolly Cohen’s wide range. Not all grills have to be in your face. Subtle can be quite nice.
The model’s lip cuffs, a very close, lip-locked cousin to grills, weren’t completely under her own control. She wore the statement lip look for a Balmain Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2017-2018 show. Gigi Hadid has walked the designer’s runway many times, but this standout accessory made this particular show truly memorable. It’s a modern variation on the average grill.
After a few years sans grill, Kim Kardashian shared a recent photo on Instagram of a new set. It includes a diamond cross on her top teeth and a full set of diamond-encrusted teeth across the bottom. She included a simple caption, “new grillz,” to accompany the close-up shot. Does this photo mean 2019 will bring a resurgence of grills?
More recently, celebrities looking to add a bit of bling to their pearly whites have had more subtle options available to them. For example, model Hailey Baldwin shared a photo of her updated smile with two sparkly additions. Instead of covering up teeth with an unwieldy grill, however, the jewels instead adhere right onto her teeth.
Miranda Kerr wore fancy silver teeth when she walked in Baby Phat’s Spring/Summer 2007 fashion show during New York Fashion Week. Generally, models don’t smile and keep serious expressions while walking the runway. However, Kerr did smirk enough to provide a glimpse of the fierce jewel-encrusted grill.
Kelis is a grill pioneer. She first wore one back in 2004 to the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in London. Her trendsetting grills were definitely an achievement.
T-Pain may be as famous for his flashy grills as he is for his rapping. He’s even been nominated for a Choice Grill Award at the Teen Choice Awards. He also rolled up to the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards in sparkly gold style. From miles away, fans could see his bright red top hat and brilliant gold grill.
Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey sported an extra-powerful smile while performing in Los Angeles, where she showed off a gold-capped canine. Her golden tooth was a temporary accessory, not unlike the gold tooth Kesha often wears. She also swapped it for a glitzy glitter-capped tooth just in time for the Grammy Awards in 2012. It’s not quite a whole grill, but it’s still just as eye-catching.
For some stars, a temporary shiny mouthpiece isn’t enough. Kanye West went all in on his blinged-out smile, though it’s hard to capture it on camera. He talked about his glittering teeth on Ellen DeGeneres’s talk show in October 2010. West explained to DeGeneres, “It’s really my real teeth. I replaced my bottom row of teeth … I just thought that diamonds were cooler.” Who wants to settle for a megawatt smile when you can have a multi-carat one?
Lil Wayne has worn many different sets of grills in the past. However, in 2010, he let fans know that he’d made the bejeweled look permanent. He had dental surgery to transform his chompers into a diamond-encrusted grin. “Imma die with these. These are my teeth,” he said in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel. Take a look at his glitzy grin shining bright at game seven of the Western Conference Finals of the 2018 NBA Playoffs between the Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors at Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
After signing with the Phoenix Suns, Eric Bledsoe opted to treat himself to a $2,500 new grin. The point guard did sign a $70 million contract to play ball, so his new fronts were just chump change in comparison. Now his teeth match his golden ball skills. According to TMZ, he shared the love. He commissioned not one but two sets from Thizzelles Grillz. One golden grill for himself and one shining set for his brother.
