When asked about this new diamond grill, Kanye said that they were a replacement to his real teeth. Obviously, Ellen had a lot of questions. But Kanye explained, "I just thought the diamonds were cooler."
However, a New York-based cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ramin Tabib, said, "I couldn't imagine any dentist that would actually be convinced to extract someone's teeth to replace them with diamonds. This borders on malpractice. It's like going to your internist and asking him to cut your left hand off because you really don't need two hands."
