And a bit of bling to finish off…

Guinness World Records has now officially confirmed that the cosmetic dentist Dr. William “Bill” Dorfman has created the world’s Most valuable grill (jewellery), encrusted with diamonds and precious gemstones, it’s no wonder that the intricate grill is worth a hefty $1,000,000 (£758,388).

This dazzling grill may be a bit ostentatious to wear on the daily, but it fits just right in Katy Perry’s extravagant music video for hit single “Dark Horse”, for which it was intended.

Until next time, keep up that Oral Health!
