Did Kanye West Get His Teeth Pulled And Replaced With Titanium Dentures?
Excuse me, there seems to be something in your teeth. Kanye West took to Instagram to share his new metallic dentures, that the Daily Mail says is worth roughly $850,000!
The rapper has gone metal. Now, there’s a rumor floating around that he actually had all of his teeth pulled in order to have them replaced with these shiny dentures.
Did Kanye West Get His Teeth Pulled For Titanium Dentures?
In his Instagram story, Kanye compares himself to James Bond villain Jaws. Jaws has a mouth full of metal in the movies when he appeared in “The Spy Who Loved Me” and “Moonraker.” He’s one of the most iconic Bond villains of all-time. It’s only fitting that Kanye would model himself off of Jaws.
Initially, there were reports by Daily Mail and rumors that Mr. West had his teeth removed in order to have the expensive set installed. However, Dr. Thomas Connelly, who reportedly did the work, denies those claims.
Dr. Connelly told Complex, “He did not have his teeth removed. He still has a full dentition. Healthy and happy.” Dr. Connelly shared pictures of Kanye’s model on his Instagram.
It’s definitely a unique look. I don’t think I could pull it off. Also, when did they start calling them “dentures?” The whole report keeps mentioning dentures. When I was younger, we called them grills. Are these different? Ah, man, I’m getting old. I looked it up, grills are removable and dental implants are permanent, per LibertyvilleDentist.com.
Often, for denture and veneer procedures they will remove or file down your teeth to little nubs before adding the sets. Additionally, this isn’t the first time Kanye West has been involved with rumors he removed his teeth for an updated set.
He previously claimed on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” that he had his bottom teeth taken out and replaced with diamonds, according to Page Six. At the time, he said diamonds were cooler. However, he went on to admit that he had to visit the dentist frequently to keep his teeth nice.
Sounds like someone might just like attention? Seems to fit his pattern of behavior.
