As far back as ancient culture people have been inserting gems and precious metals into their teeth. Its amazing how dentistry and products that affect the appearance of teeth have exploded in so many ways. Before, the focus was on the prevention of cavities and the promotion of healthy gums. Nowadays, the physical appearance of teeth has become prominent in modern dentistry.
In American culture, this practice became popular in the 1980′s and exploded in the 2000′s. The trend toward the fashionable tooth coverings was boosted in recent years by hip-hop icons, rappers, actors, actresses and sports figures.
Celebrities and ordinary folks alike are seen more and more often ‘sporting’ these decorative covers made of gold, silver or diamond encrusted covers affectionately known as “grills”. These covers can be either removable or permanent.
