Kanye West has a new dental routine.

While it’s normal for celebrities to update their smiles with veneers, West is anything but a normal celebrity.

His new dental work involves titanium, fangs, a Bond villain, and an eye-watering amount of money.

Kanye West is no stranger to questionable choices.

He recently decided to sell his home for $53 million, which is a pretty high price for a building that has no windows or doors.

The rapper is also planning to build his own city in the Middle East called YZY Droam.

His latest venture involves collaborating with a celebrity dentist.

Dr Thomas Connelly is known as the ‘Father of Diamond Dentistry’ in Beverly Hills where he fits his famous clients with camera-ready smiles.

West, however, wanted something more unconventional from Dr Connelly.

He showed the dentist a photo of a Bond villain, aptly named ‘Jaws’, as the inspiration for his new look.

Together they designed a shiny set of dentures made of titanium, palladium and platinum.

He took to Instagram to unveil his new teeth, complete with fangs on each side of the plate.

This is not the first time West has upgraded his dental set-up.

In 2010 he told Ellen DeGeneres that he’d replaced his bottom row of teeth with a diamond grill.

Both then and now the internet lost it at the thought of someone removing their perfectly healthy teeth in the name of bling.

But West’s dentist has confirmed that his real teeth are still intact, with his fanged titanium grill sitting neatly on top of them.

Permanent or not, the public did not hold back their opinions on his new look.

“Why does it look like he just wrapped gum wrapper around his teeth like we used to do when we were kids?” one commenter said.

“Totally a normal and sane thing to do,” another said, presumably ironically.

The piece didn’t come cheap, setting West back a whopping $850,000.

That’s a really expensive shiny gum guard.
