Always one to defy conventions, Malone’s decision to get diamond teeth (6-carat fangs) is an extension of his unique brand of individualism. Dr. Thomas Connelly, the man behind the transformative work, captured it best by stating that the fang-like canines symbolize Malone’s essence.

The mastermind behind Post Malone’s glinting transformation is Dr. Thomas Connelly, often dubbed as the father of diamond dentistry. Navigating the uncharted territory of implanting entire diamond teeth, Dr. Connelly and his team had to meticulously engineer the fangs. A paramount concern was the ability of the teeth to perform everyday functions without hindrance. Addressing this, Dr. Connelly confirmed that the diamond teeth are not just ornamental; they are fully functional and are “not going anywhere.” There was significant time spent on trial and error before the final masterpiece.

The dazzling smile came with a hefty price tag of $1.6 million. The primary cost driver? The excellent quality of diamonds used. As detailed by Dr. Thomas Connelly, these aren’t ordinary gems; they’re flawless diamonds known for their unparalleled brilliance. Samuel Tack from Angel City Jewelers further quantified their worth, revealing the teeth comprise roughly 12 carats in total. Another dentist and YouTuber, Dr. Gurs Sehmi revealed, “It’s an intricate work because each took is like a 6-carat diamond. But they had to get a 12-carat diamond and cut it down because the actual shape of the diamond wouldn’t be a good fit for the teeth.

You know what they say — with great diamonds come great chances of your diamond fang slipping down the sewer in a bathroom. As reported by Esquire, while enjoying Chicken McNuggets in Rome, Post Malone faced a startling mishap and lost one of his diamonds for a bit. One of his diamond teeth, valued at $600,000, got dislodged and fell into a sewer drain. But, the rapper cleverly retrieved it right away using pliers and a plastic tripod from a pizza box. The good news is, the diamond was recovered and soon after, a local Roman dentist re-embedded the diamond in his tooth. This unforgettable incident inspired the title of his 2022 album, Twelve Carat Toothache.
