Surprisingly in many cultures in Asia, gold teeth are considered to symbols of wealth and affluence. Here based on the number of gold teeth a person has, his or her wealth is calculated. So, the richer the person, the more gold teeth he or she will sport.

Gold teeth are a symbol of flamboyant status. Worldwide, people are status conscious and, in order to show that they are well off as compared to the rest of the community, they find ways to portray the wealth and the money they have.

Gold teeth are also used to symbolize the wealth, status and prestige of a person. People usually get gold teeth to flaunt their status and money.

Hollywood stars are often seen wearing gold teeth, like movie star Johnny depp and Madonna. Later, gold teeth covering became a fashion in Miami. During 1980s, famous rappers like flava flav, big daddy Kane and kool g rap enhanced the idea of gold teeth and also increased the visibility and approval of this idea. Grills and gold teeth were associated with prosperity, prestige and status symbol. It became a visible proof of having a level of income and reputation.

Master P also has more money than the dudes in the hood wearing grills.

The problem isn't that it's a sign of "status", the problem is that these men in the hood wearing them have no status. All most of them have is their Gold Grill.

When you see P with his Grill (if he still wears it which I highly doubt seeing as he spoke out at a conference against certain aspects of hood culture and rap influence with David Banner) P actually has money, and his kids have money and the things they need.

Living in the Hood, and wearing 5K worth of gold in your mouth is ridiculous, because for starters you LIVE IN THE HOOD.

Symbolism changes with society. Now a days a symbol of status is a healthy well taken care of family or an education.

Having a mouth full of gold, and your kids living beside crack houses isn't a sign of status, but a sign of selfishness and confusion. It's a "front" at most..

They can afford gold if they ignore other things - aka "being irresponsible" - which is something very prevalent in 'the ghetto' today -> having multiple babies out of wedlock before having a good career - buying big, expensive rims for your car, etc.
Usually drug dealers will make quite a bit more money to afford more gold, so these types are more likely to be wearing those gold caps for their teeth.
i've seen drug dealers spend 100's of thousands in real estate and lose their azzes....with interest rates low meaning if u put money in the bank and you actually lose money than gain like with those bonds that nobody buys anymore lol. so investing in gold whether in bars or jewelry is actually a good investment

like i said look at the BIG purchase items instead of the other stuff to see where teh loses actually occur..nobody goes under from buying gold jewelry or gold teeth but a house bought at the wrong time or a bad investment could cost you everything.

so in summary it was more IRRESPONSIBLE SPENDING IN REAL ESTATE thes last years than gold purchased...grow the phuck up

This topic makes so-called edumacated negroes who learned to talk like "massa" a little uncomfortble because it opens up a touchy subject about wether we have to be more "white" to make in a white dominated society. The moon is in communicative gemini,dont be afraid to say what others are thinking(no matter how taboo).:)

"Bad Effects Of Dental Grills

Dental grills, also known as “grillz,” have become popular among some teens and adults due to their popularity among celebrities, especially rap musicians. Grills are decorative covers that snap over one or more teeth. They are usually made of gold, silver or other precious metals. But less expensive grills are often made from base metals that can cause irritation or an allergic reaction.

There are no long-term studies of dental grills, so there are no data about long-term safety or about problems resulting from long-term wear.

Grills can promote plaque buildup and tooth decay because food particles and bacteria may build up between the teeth and the grill. A grill may also cause abrasion of the teeth that border it. Excessive wearing of grills may discolor teeth, too, so grill fans may need to whiten teeth when they decide to stop wearing the grill.

Anyone who wears a dental grill should be especially attentive to dental hygiene, and follow a consistent routine of twice-daily tooth brushing and daily flossing. Also, be sure to remove the grill before eating and rinse it often to remove bacteria and food particles. Talk to your dentist before getting a dental grill and be sure to find out how best to reduce the risk of bacterial buildup and other complications."

Just imagine the smell when the grill comes off, the sight of those rotted teeth and festering gum disease.

Ewwwww!

Unlike you, I don't think that highly of the "white man", I don't consider them the owners of all things intelligent.

Having an education and working and taking care of your family isn't the "white man".

You've been manipulated into thinking that poverty and lack of education is the black way when it's not.

Do you enroll your children in schools?

I know more about my history than you know about yours.

Trust me, being an ignorant dude standing on the corner with a mouth full of gold and no real hope for himself his future nor his family isn't my history.
