I hope you've got some savings stashed away in your back pocket for the damage those suckers are going to do to your teeth - because they are going to damage them.

If you are set on wearing them, please take the time to talk to your dentist (or better yet a dentist who specializes in fitting grillz) before you get them.

Also buy a quality set, base metals can cause allergic reactions to your mouth over time, not to mention discoloring your mouth/teeth.

All that said, to me these look like a mix between bad partial plates & braces. But, to each their own I guess...

They are for teeth, I wouldn't wear them permanently though. Just for going out at the weekend for a few hours :smiley:

I've read that article :)

Speaking from 2nd hand experience I've seen the damage they can do. A good friend blew through $5k in dental repairs because his grill damaged his opposing teeth (he had a bottom plate, the constant bumping against the top teeth caused them to chip & wear).

I'm not saying don't get them, it's your mouth lol I'm just saying before you do you should research the damage they can cause.

Thanks, i don't like the idea of spending 5k on dental repairs Lol  If i do decide to buy though after doing my research, i'd only wear them on a night out at a weekend. Not 24/7 because then my teeth will be wrecked. They're just a fashionabe trend that seems to be out nowadays. Weird and unattractive to a lot of people but it's each to their own Lol

I am a dental hygienist and first hand have seen the damage these things can cause. Whether worn for a "few hours occasionally" or "full time",

they are nothing but bad news.

But as you say to each his own.

I don't think i will bother buying any grillz now, seems like a lot have that point of view about them. Think i might have my Tongue pierced instead Lol

So glad outlook decided not to the get  the grillz :)

I like tounge piercings personally.

Thanks, I'm glad I've been told the damage they can do. I like tongue piercings too, had one before but needed to take it out due to having surgery :smiley:

Believe it or not. but tongue piercings are bad on the teeth also.

The person develops a tendency  to "tap" the teeth with it and can evetually crack and chip the teeth.

The mouth was not designed to have such "jewelry" in it.

At least it won't damage your so very important teeth and I bet you have  a

great smile without anything added!
