Gold teeth are a form of dental prosthesis used for the following cosmetic purposes:
Dentists have used gold to fill cavities (before mercury amalgam became available), for crowns, and for other purposes for many years. Dental Gold is malleable, nearly immune to corrosion, and hard enough to form a biting surface that can be used for many years.
In certain parts of the world, specifically the former Soviet Central Asia, gold teeth are often worn as a status symbol, a symbol of wealth. In fact, they are now even installed in place of healthy teeth or as crowns over filed-down healthy teeth.
Grills, false tooth coverings made of gold, have today become a popular hip hop fashion in the U.S. Some rap stars have even had their gold teeth permanently attached to existing, healthy teeth. In late 2005, the band Nelly released the famous rap single “Grillz” which helped promote the dental apparatus.
