Bling for your mouth is widely popular with many outrageous looking jewelry being created all the time. Many popular rap artists and celebrities wear grillz, such as Nelly, Lil Jon, Kelis, Slick Rick, and Kanye West, among others.
A grill (a.k.a. grills, grillz) is a type of jewelry worn over the teeth. People started to wear them in the 80's, but they've recently become popular again. They are made of metal and are removable, although sometimes grillz are permanently attached to the teeth.
There are limitless possibilites to what types of grill you can get. Some get diamonds, while some have words displayed. It seems like the shinier the better. Prices for these can range anywhere from fifty dollars to thousands of dollars.
