How to Make Grillz

What are Grillz? The metal-mouth creations known as 'grillz' are really a trend adaptation of gold crowns or fillings. Clubbers and other hipsters are making their own "fake gold teeth", sometimes a whole mouthful of them, out of foil or other handy materials.

With high-end accessorizers catching on, the range of grillz products is expanding. Here's one way to make your own.

Get your materials together. A more rigid kind of foil would be best, as well as a good pair of scissors or shears.

  • The metal-mouth creations known as 'grillz' are really a trend adaptation of gold crowns or fillings.

Fit the foil into your mouth and mold it around your teeth.

Take the foil out and cut it to fit.

Fit the foil back into your mouth and identify any uncomfortable edges.

Take the mold out and trim it again.

Put the mold back in and make sure it fits tightly onto your teeth.

Bond your grillz as necessary. Use your fingers to press your grillz into place. If you can find a good non-toxic glue, you could use it to fix the grillz onto your teeth, but a better method would be to include a "lip" in the foil that goes over top of your teeth and around the interior edge just a little do that the grillz "hug" your teeth, making glue unnecessary.
