AceShowbiz - Post Malone has a literally $1 million smile. Spending $1.6 million for his new diamond vampire fangs, the "Circle" rapper is said to have set a "new precedent in the music world" as the person who has the "most drip."
On Monday, June 14, the rapper's Beverly Hills dentist Dr. Thomas Connelly showed off the finished look of the 25-year-old musician's new teeth. "Post Malone completed his $1,600,000 smile reconstruction last weekend !!" the dentist captioned an Instagram post featuring a black-and-white portrait of the "Rock Star" spitter clenching a cigarette between his brand new pearly whites.
"With a smile that shows off natural Porcelain Veneer work framed with 2 Diamond Fangs with a total weight of 12 Carats, Post Malone literally has $1 million smile!!!" Dr. Connelly continued. Adding more details, the dentist, who has also done cosmetic dental work on DaBaby and Travis Barker, explained, "A collaborative between Dr. Connelly, @_naoki_hayashi_ , along with Isaac Bokhoor and his team of Diamond Cutters @bichachi_diamonds_la and Setters @angelcityjewelers , Post Malone's epic ICE smile has set a new precedent in the music world of who has the most 'Drip'."
During a conversation with Rolling Stones, Dr. Connelly revealed that the project took about a year-and-a-half of trial and error to figure out how to create the diamond teeth, then a few more months to place them. "It's very difficult to cut holes in diamonds without destroying them," the dentist explained. He also spilled that he used "40 carats of diamonds sourced from Belgium and cut in Israel, coming in at $1.6 million."
"In order to make a diamond in the shape of a tooth, for example, if you get a six-carat canine tooth, you need a 12-carat raw cube. So there's a lot of waste," Dr. Connelly elaborated further. "That diamond, they could have got three or four other diamonds out of it, so we had to waste it in order to get it into shape."
When it comes to cleaning Malone's new teeth, the dentist claimed there is no special method. He could simply clean his teeth as he normally would. "He's now got two functional, full diamond teeth," he said. "They light up the room. They sparkle, they shine, they're amazing."
Connelly thinks Malone is set to start a trend with his new chompers, with Odell Beckham Jr. apparently among other celebrities on the waiting list. "I've been talking to a few other people who were waiting to see how this turned out before they dropped their million. So we'll see," the dentist spilled.
