Take a look at Plies’ real teeth

Plies posted an image to his Twitter feed just two hours ago of his brand new gnashers. He said he’d just shown his mother his “new smile”.

“She Hugged Me Started Crying & Said “I Finally Got My Baby Back”. One Of The Proudest Days Of My Life.” He also shared the news via Instagram.

Among those who have noticed Plies’ new look is singer, songwriter and record producer extraordinaire, Missy Elliott.

Elliott responded to Plies’ pearly whites, saying that he was “fly either way”. She also said that his teeth looked “handsome on ya”.

Already commentators are joking about what might happen to the teeth, now that they’re buried.

With or without gold teeth?

Plies isn’t the first in the industry to make the change. Previously, the likes of Chris Brown, Kelis, A$AP Rocky and Nelly have gone from one to the other.

Capital Xtra put together a series of comparisons, for your entertainment.

Exactly how long Plies wore his gold grills is not known. However, his followers mostly seem to agree that the fresh teeth are a good look.

Although there are those who “cannot stop laughing” at the supposed resemblance he now shares with Robogadget.
