Veracity of Kanye’s Diamond Teeth Called Into Question

Tuesday on Ellen, Kanye flashed his newly acquired diamond teeth, claiming he'd actually replaced his bottom row completely with priceless jewels. Ellen was skeptical, and the rest of the Internet has been too. EW even called up a dentist, who told them, "I really doubt that the gold was extended into his actual socket within the gum and bone to replace the actual teeth themselves ...There’s no way you can just place the gold into the gum or the bone without any connection to your natural teeth.” Any rap-loving dentistry students out there care to weigh in?
