When you want to add some unconventional bling to your style, grills are the way to go. Also known as fronts or grillz, these flashy teeth covers have been staples of the hip-hop community since the early 1980s. They’re typically made of gold or silver and are often encrusted with diamonds or other gemstones to give the wearer a dazzling smile. They pair well with other jewelry, too, like 14K gold chains and bracelets.

If you are in the market for a new gold grill, there are a few things you should know. These trendy mouthpieces come in several different styles, and with custom grills, you don’t need to worry about damaging your teeth (as long as you wear them properly). Here at Frost NYC, we sell dope custom grills and are here to help you choose the right ones for you. Keep reading to learn more about the different types of grills for your teeth. 

1. Flats

Flats are what you want when you’re looking for grills that look as much like permanent gold teeth as possible. Most of the time, they are solid gold, but they can be decorated with diamonds and other gemstones, too. 

With flats, you can see each individual tooth shape. Whether they cover one tooth or several teeth, the goal is to make it look like you have permanent gold teeth rather than removable grills. 

2. Diamond Cuts

Diamond cut grills have a midwestern or southern feel, and they are definitely a bold look. These grills are not for someone who is looking for something subtle! Diamond cuts add some extra drama, shine and dimension to your grills and help them stand out in a crowd. 

If you love the look of diamond cuts but don’t want designs covering the entire tooth, check out French tips. These teeth feature diamond cuts only at the top edge of each tooth. Think of it like a French manicure for your teeth. French tips are often two-tone and are designed to add a lot of sparkle to your mouth. 

3. Openface

Also known as windows, openface grills frame the teeth with metal, leaving the teeth exposed in the middle. Rather than decorating the entire tooth, they only decorate the edges. They look amazing, and they are a perfect option for anyone who wants to enter the world of grills without filling their entire mouth with gold. 

Some of these grills only use metal to frame the teeth, while others are encrusted with gems for an extra-blingy style. 

4. Gemstone

Gemstone grills feature gemstones, as the name implies. While diamonds are the most popular option, we also have gemstone grills with pink sapphires, rubies and opals. They are the sparkliest type of grill, and they’re the ones that are sure to draw attention in any crowd. 

If you’re looking for unique and elegant grills, you can’t go wrong with gemstones. This style is suitable for both men and women, though certain stones tend to be more popular with ladies. 

5. Drip

When you want your mouth to be dripping with gold, choose drip grills. Rather than completely covering your teeth, these fronts make it look like you have a mouth full of liquid gold. They’re an interesting alternative to more traditional styles, and they are sure to earn you a lot of double takes!

6. Word Grills

With custom word grills, you can send a clear message every time you open your mouth. This jewelry gives the appearance of having a word written across your teeth. Whether you have grills made featuring your name, nickname or a word like “juicy,” this is one type of custom word jewelry that not many other folks in your crew are likely to have.
