Post Malone spends whopping £1.1million getting new 12 carat diamond fangs

Post Malone perhaps took the phrase “million dollar smile” a little too literally with his latest dental work, that's sure to inspire more stars.

The musician has spent an astonishing $1.6 million (£1.1m) having two diamonds fitted to his teeth.

His blingy new gnashers now feature two massive rocks, and these aren’t tiny little gems either, and appear to be the size of full teeth.

He already has a wide range of body modifications, including his famous face tattoos, and now he’s gone one step further with his mouth jewellery.

In fact, he told Jimmy Kimmel last year how he got a tattoo at the same time as getting his teeth checked out.

"We talked about it and we were just like, you know, 'I'm gonna be sitting around for hours doing nothing anyways, why not get two bad things out of the way at the same time?'" he said.

The two diamonds are 12 carats in total, and to fit them he needed 26 units of ceramic restoration.

If 12 sounds impressive, they were originally 40 carats but had to be cut down to size.

The gems originally came from Belgium, and were flown to Israel to be cut.

His makeover is the work of celebrity dentist Dr. Thomas Connelly, cosmetic dentist Naoki Hayashi, and Isaac Bokhoor of Angel City Jewelers.

Connelly said it took a year and a half to achieve the ‘Circles’ singer’s new look.

The dentist told Rolling Stone : "In order to make a diamond in the shape of a tooth – for example, if you get a six-carat canine tooth, you need a 12-carat raw cube. So there's a lot of waste.

"That diamond, they could have got three or four other diamonds out of it, so we had to waste it in order to get it into shape.

"It's very difficult to cut holes in diamonds without destroying them."

"He's now got two functional, full diamond teeth. They light up the room. They sparkle, they shine; they're amazing," Connelly added.

"I've been talking to a few other people who were waiting to see how this turned out before they dropped their million. So we'll see."
