Post Malone Spends $1.6 Million On Getting Diamond Teeth

Post Malone has forked out US$1.6 million (£1.1m) putting two massive diamonds in his teeth.

The 'Circles' singer is no stranger to body modifications and has an impressive collection of face and head tattoos.

But he's taking his style to the next level after enlisting some of the best in the game to help transform two of his teeth.

The two diamonds are 12 carats and he needed 26 units of ceramic restoration to make the new grill complete.

Normal grills are essentially just sparkly mouth guards and can be removed at will. However, Post's new teeth look like they're permanent.

While they are now 12 carats, they had to be shaved down from 40 carats. They were sourced from Belgium before being flown to Israel to be cut down.

The rapper called on celebrity dentist Dr. Thomas Connelly, cosmetic dentist Naoki Hayashi, and Isaac Bokhoor of Angel City Jewelers to help him complete his vision of a pricey new smile.

Connelly said the process of getting the rocks attached to his chompers has been a year and a half long ordeal.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, the dentist explained: "In order to make a diamond in the shape of a tooth - for example, if you get a six-carat canine tooth, you need a 12-carat raw cube. So there's a lot of waste.

"That diamond, they could have got three or four other diamonds out of it, so we had to waste it in order to get it into shape.

"It's very difficult to cut holes in diamonds without destroying them."

Post will have to clean them like they're normal teeth and there's apparently a bunch of celebrities who are lining up to get something similar.

"He's now got two functional, full diamond teeth. They light up the room. They sparkle, they shine; they're amazing," Connelly said.

"I've been talking to a few other people who were waiting to see how this turned out before they dropped their million. So we'll see."

The celebrity dentist met Post at Madison Square Garden a few years ago and Post expressed how he wanted to get some mods done to his teeth.

But it seems like Post enjoys killing two birds with one stone when he sees his dentist.

The rapper told Jimmy Kimmel back in August last year how he got a tattoo in the same office he was getting his teeth checked out.

"We talked about it and we were just like, you know, 'I'm gonna be sitting around for hours doing nothing anyways, why not get two bad things out of the way at the same time?'" he said.
