Steppin’ Out With “Grillz”

During Fashion Week in London, Kendall Jenner made appearances in a white crocheted poncho with gold “Grillz ” covering her canine and bicuspid teeth. The peek of gold in her smile showed a little edge in the young model’s personal style. Whether you like the look or not, you have to admit it takes some courage to wear tooth jewelry.

Are They Safe? If you look at tooth accessories and think, “I didn’t even know something like that existed! Is it even safe?” The answer is yes. And no. Or rather, it depends. There are no studies that indicate a safety concern for "Grillz" or dental jewelry. There are also no studies following the effects of long-term wear.

So Which Is It? In general, when worn for short periods of time and cared for, metal covers for your teeth are harmless. But there are some precautions you should take if this is a look that you want.

If you want to wear grillz, but have questions, call one of our South Florida offices! Our dentists will be glad to assist you on making a smart choice about your smile.
