Making a surprising shift from rap to heavy metal vibes, Ye flaunted what seemed to be a jaw-dropping set of metallic dentures. According to the grapevine, Ye’s teeth underwent a radical makeover, with reports suggesting a complete removal, replaced by bespoke titanium dentures crafted by the self-proclaimed “Father of Diamond Dentistry,” Dr. Thomas Connelly, and cosmetic dentist Naoki Hayashi. Despite swirling speculations, there was no solid confirmation on the extent of dental work undergone by Ye. However, insiders close to the artist clarify that he did not go all out with a teeth removal.

Instead, his upper row now features a distinctive new grill resembling a metal mouthpiece. Furthermore, breaking away from the conventional tooth contours, with only his K-9 teeth taking the spotlight. In a subsequent post, West added a playful touch to his new dental look, drawing a cheeky parallel to the infamous James Bond villain, Jaws, renowned for his metal-filled mouth in the ’70s films The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker.
