    OK, I have a weird curiosity about this. How do these things stay on? Does a dentist cement them on permanently?

    Looks like they would be very hard to chew with.

    Tom, i thought you might have some to go with your Ali G costume!:rofl:

    anyway, while searching for more details on how these work, I came across the "advantages" section. The funniest part is that they break character from pimp talk here and go straight into Engrish!:bugeye:

    I was anticipating this and even thought of putting it in my post. Anyway wikipedia is probably sufficient in this respect.

    Looks like an invitation to trapping acidic/sugary/salty/rotting bits of food between bling and teeth, so teeth will fall apart faster. Good deal for the "dentist", I guess, if he can live with his choices.

    Regardless, I'm glad you're looking into them. I always knew you were meant to be "Pimp" and I can't wait to see pics of you flashing a smile that says "Math" in fake gems.

    Isn't what I posted applicable? From the links I thought that grillz are just a brand of bling blings.

    It's just so creepy to think of this going on at a flea market. *shudder*

    Just the really savvy salemen at the flea market. "Either pay me or leave them here - and you don't want me to help you take them out!"

    Well, if my teeth looked like the ones in the caricature, I'd probably go for Grillz, too.

    I've seen them snap on like a dental dam that you wear to prevent clinching or grinding.

    How grillz are held in place

    Grillz can be permanently bonded to the teeth by a dentist or you can get instant http://www.ballersice.com" [Broken] which are removable and are held in place by a special silicon "fixing bar" which molds to the teeth when placed in hot water.
