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 Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
