In a surprising move, Kanye West has acquired titanium dentures worth an astounding $850,000. The “Donda” hitmaker opted for permanent implants, known as “fixed prosthodontics,” designed entirely by the rapper himself in collaboration with Dr. Thomas Connelly, the self-proclaimed “Father of Diamond Dentistry.” As per the Daily Mail, the implants are “more expensive than diamonds.”

The experimental dentistry incorporates palladium and platinum materials to “manufacture” and “fit” the dentures. “They are, as the name suggests, fixed and permanent,” a source dished to Page Six on Thursday. “This goes way beyond veneers or grills. And his particular implant is quite unlike anything that has been done before.” The source added, “All that said … his teeth weren’t removed.”

Kanye West compared his titanium dentures with James Bond villain Jaws

West shook the internet on Wednesday as he showcased his metal implants on Instagram and compared himself to the James Bond villain Jaws, known for his distinctive metal teeth. Dr. Connelly, who fitted the dentures alongside Naoki Hayashi, Master Dental Technician in Beverly Hills, praised West’s design process.

“Ye was a pleasure to work with every step of the process,” he told the Daily Mail on Wednesday. “His vision for designing unique art transcends the dental progression.” “The marriage of his Vision with dental science has created a new look that is epic!” the dentist continued.

West talked about getting his bottom teeth replaced with diamonds in 2010

The ‘Monster’ rapper has a history of transforming his teeth and once revealed on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2010 that he replaced his bottom teeth with diamonds. Explaining his choice, he said, “I just thought that diamonds were cooler.”

To which, Ellen inquired, “It’s not a grill?” Kanye replied: “It’s really my real teeth. I replaced my bottom row of teeth. I guess there’s just certain things that rock stars are supposed to do.”

North West gets bottom teeth covered with bling

Another not-so-surprising detail of the West family includes 10-year-old North West flaunting a new diamond grill on TikTok on Wednesday. The oldest daughter of Kim Kardashian posted a photo revealing four of her bottom teeth entirely covered with bling. While the look was identical to Kim’s March 2021 grill look, it is likely that North was inspired by her father.
