Grill (jewelry)

In hip hop culture, a grill (most commonly spelled as grillz), also known as fronts or golds, is a type of jewelry worn over the teeth. Grills are made of metal and are generally removable. They began to be worn by hip hop artists in New York City in the early 1980s, and upgraded during the 90s in Oakland. They became even more widely popular during the mid-2000s due to the rise of Southern hip hop rap and the more mainstream pop culture status hip hop attained. Although grills are fitted to the tooth impression of the wearer, there is no long-term effect to wearing grills.
