Teeth jewelry is the latest trend musicians and celebs alike are embracing. Dr. Anjali Rajpal, a dentist for Katy Perry and several other stars, told Us Weekly that celebrities and trendsetters alike are looking to add some bling to their smile.
“In the past it was big for rappers to have grills that are embedded with expensive jewels. The trend migrated to pop stars, male and female alike, because it’s not so serious and a lot of fun,” Rajpal explained of the new fad. “Grills can be difficult because you have to take them out and they’re hard to speak and eat with, but what I’m doing now is adhering diamonds to the teeth and they can stay there all the time.”
Dr. Anjali Rajpal can create “unique” and “custom designs” for clients, including Hailey Baldwin.
“I like to make something fun and since there’s no damage to the tooth structure, if a patient wants something different, all I do is polish off the gem and polish back the tooth structure, so they can easily change it up,” she said. “It’s such a conversation starter and it’s a cool new trend. We put jewelry on our necks, noses and ears, and your teeth are pearls already, so it’s nice to jewel them out.”
