The procedure is quick, painless, and leaves you with a studded smile that can even last up to a year. So, for those looking to hop on this trend and get their teeth jewelry done, we’re here to lend a helping hand in choosing your style.

If you’re looking for inspiration for your tooth gems celebrities can be a great source! In this article, we’ll go over our favorite 8 celebrities with tooth gems, and try to give you an idea of what kinds of styles are out there.

Scroll down to find your inspiration!

Bella Hadid Tooth Gem

Known for combining borderline eccentric model-off-duty looks in the streets and elegant and sleek looks at formal events, Bella Hadid was one of the first to adopt this retro trend.

As you can see in the pic below, she opted for a very simple design – just two small stones on one tooth. This style is perfect for those who like to mix & match their overall styles since the simplicity of this design goes with anything!

Just like with any other accessory, if you don’t want it to be the focal point of your whole look, keep it subtle!

Katy Perry Tooth Gem

Way back in 2017, Katy Perry showed up as one of the very first celebrity tooth gems supporters – before this trend even became a trend!

Her choice was to get a golden Nike swoosh on her tooth – and she absolutely rocks it! This type of gem is unsurprisingly very popular, and there is an abundance of famous logos shops that will let you choose from.

But, since it was 2017, logomania was everywhere, so the choice was obvious.

If you do go for this style, make sure to choose carefully between silver and gold – although Katy has managed to pull off the gold swoosh with the silver earrings!

Hailey Bieber Tooth Gems

Hailey Bieber has always been known for her love of elegance and simplicity. Not only that, but she’s also a trendsetter – from the infamous pearly Haily Bieber nail trend that dominated last spring, to the latte makeup and cinnamon cookie butter hair we’re seeing in fall 2023.

So, it came as no surprise that she was also one of the first adopters of the tooth gem trend, showing off her rhinestones on her Instagram.

The style she chose is somewhat similar to Bella Hadid’s – it’s just two small stones, but placed on different teeth. Again, this is perfect for those who want to hop on the trend without the jewelry dominating their whole look.

FKA Twigs Tooth Gem

Long-time fans of R&B and pop queen FKA Twigs already know that her teeth are part of her signature look! From embracing her tooth gap, to rocking braces, to going all out with tooth gems – she’s always been known for her smile.

Just last year, she announced her new mixtape by sharing the official cover, which features the on-brand intricate jewel design she got done on her teeth.

Although this isn’t a new look for her, this design that spreads across almost all of her front teeth definitely is!

If you like what FKA Twigs is doing, we say go for the same aesthetic! But, it’s always good to keep in mind that it takes some time to get used to tooth gems, and maybe getting such a large design isn’t the best choice for a first-timer.

Jaden Smith Tooth Gem

Jaden Smith has never been one to shy away from bold looks, and his attitude towards fashion can also be seen on his teeth!

As you can see from the pic below, Jaden combined 2 different tooth trends – he’s wearing both grillz and tooth gems. In fact, his tooth is so covered with gems that it looks like a part of the grillz!

As cool as this look may seem to some, we have to say that it’s not exactly the safest – some of those rhinestones are placed too close to his gums, and may cause trouble later on.

Hopefully, he didn’t keep them on for too long.

Saint West Tooth Gems

Kim and Kanye’s seven-year-old son has also been spotted out with his own set of tooth gems!

This move has largely divided the fan base, with one group saying that Saint is still far too young for any type of body mod, while the rest are saying that there’s nothing to worry about as tooth gems are generally harmless.

Keeping up with the logo trend, Saint can be seen rocking the famous LV logo on one tooth and some simple, although densely placed rhinestones on the other – a look perfectly fitting for an heir to the Kardashian-West empire.

Kendall Jenner Tooth Gem

Kendall Jenner seems to be following the same trends as the other models on our list – her tooth gem is stunningly simple, much like those that Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber chose as well.

Kendall opted for a single gem – a golden cross placed on her upper incisor.

This placement is great for those who want to show off their dental jewelry when they smile, but still want to keep it subtle!

Drake Tooth Gem

Rapper Drake seems to have embraced the simplicity trend as well. As you can see, he chose to have just two tooth gems installed, but the placement is definitely much more prominent than what we’ve seen so far.

Drake is rocking a single pink rhinestone on each of his upper front teeth.

This type of look is great if you want everyone to be able to see your jewel even when you’re just talking, and the single rhinestone is a good choice if you’re new to the trend and just want to test it out!

Final Thoughts

From what we’ve seen with our favorite celebrities, tooth gems are an outlet for self-expression.

The style you choose should be something that goes with your general aesthetic – if you like to keep it simple, opt for a Bella Hadid look. Or, if you’re the flashier type, look to FKA Twigs and Jaden Smith for some inspo!

Whichever look you choose, just make sure to have your dentist’s approval first – there’s no need to make your tooth bling a source of trouble later on!
