How To Select Suitable Diamond Grillz For Teeth

How To Select Suitable Diamond Grillz For Teeth

Do you love gold or diamond jewelry? Is your heart set on fire with bling? Just imagine having a heart of gold, or something better made of platinum, gold, or diamonds? What about your teeth? It might be expensive, but it will certainly help you follow the latest hip hop jewelry trend.

History

When you look at the early periods of Chinese and Egyptian history, people often used gold for fake teeth as it was so malleable. Researchers have found skulls which are over 5000 years old and still have gold teeth in their mouths.

Removable Gold Teeth

We used to see people opting for permanent gold teeth, but nowadays the trend is changing. These days, people prefer to have removable teeth caps which are referred to as Gold Grillz, Gold Grillz with diamonds, Gold Packs, Gold Fronts, or simply Gold teeth.

Gold/Diamond Teeth Grillz are more popular among celebrities these days as they wear them as a status symbol to their events and shows. These Grillz can be quickly and easily removed as well. You can also remove them for brushing and sleeping. Teeth Grillz are mostly used today for novelty purposes only, and people wear them as a type of status symbol.

Karats

Gold/Diamond Grillz are manufactured in all karats of gold, starting from 10K. Here’s what you should know.

  • The 10K type is the least expensive and strongest against bending, however it stains easier than other higher karat gold options.
  • If you’re following a budget, then 14K gold offers the best value to the consumer. It has a dazzling shine and medium hardness and durablilty.
  • Now comes the 18K gold option. It’s quite expensive, durable, has a brilliant luster, and doesn’t stain easily.
  • The most costly option is the 24K pure gold, which has a matchless shine and color and doesn’t stain easily. However, it’s very soft and in some cases bends out easy, but it’s the best option of all.

You can choose a Grillz style with any of these gold karat options.

Cleaning and Maintenance of Gold Teeth

We are all aware that gold is an expensive metal with a bright dark yellow color. When the jeweler mixes other metals into it to make lower quality karats and gold colors such as 10K, 14K, and 18K, as well as rose/pink and white gold, the metal remains no longer pure.

Just remember that the lower the quantity of karat, the faster the metal will get stains while eating and especially when you smoke. When it comes to Gold Grillz, smoking is extremely discouraged by the jewelers, but if you still smoke then you should choose a higher quality gold like 18K to 24K, as these prevent the need for regular polishing.

You can use a non-abrasive cleaner daily and after that a warm water rinse. Once dried, you can use a soft cloth for polishing as it will restore luster. Proper care and maintenance will increase the life of your Grillz.

Permanents

The majority of Gold Grillz constitute 2-pieces: a real gold tooth or a titanium implant, which is surgically fixed into the jawbone. The real gold teeth are attached to the implant and work like real teeth. You can quickly chew and bite with these teeth, and they can be cleaned just like natural teeth without being removed.

Diamonds Grillz

Last but not the least, let’s discuss the Diamond Grillz that have been added to gold teeth, especially by rappers, celebrities, and professional athletes. Diamond Grillz for teeth range from a single stone engraved to fill white SI or VS diamonds. Jewelers can create custom Diamond Grillz.

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

“Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
