How Much Are Grillz?
Thinking about getting grillz? Wondering how much grillz cost? Then you are on the right page. There are a number of factors that affect the cost of grillz. These factors include the type of metal, metal density, the type of design and accessories requested and expertise of the designer. Different "grill makers" may consider themselves more valuable than other grill makers even though the grill can be identical as far as metal, metal density and design. A grill maker like Johnny Dang widely known as "TV Johnny" & Eddie's Gold Teeth will likely charge a premium price for their grillz service. This is because they have a reputation of servicing celebrities like Paul Wall, Kanye West, Quavo, Lil John, Beyonce, Ludacris, Flavor Flav and so many other celebrities especially in the Hip Hop Community. After all one of the main reasons for getting grillz is bragging rights and to show off. What better way to show off your new grill than to attach a celebrity grill maker name to it? Big props.

"Pimpin" Your Grillz
The above is the general price range of solid grillz. However, we did mention in the very first paragraph that grillz will cost more depending on the grill maker that's designing your grillz and the aesthetics you want on the grill. Lets say you want 6 teeth top and bottom 14k gold grillz, this will cost you $900 at CustomGoldGrillz.com. Now if you want to flex a little and get deep cuts, diamond dust and fangs, your price will now be $1,020. This pricing system is pretty standard across all grillz shops. Some may charge more for diamond dust, fangs and Cubic Zirconia than the competitors.
Price Per Tooth Model
Some grillz shop instead of pricing per set of teeth, they price per tooth. So if you want to get 14k gold for 12 teeth (6 top teeth, 6 bottom teeth) they will charge you per individual tooth. The price using this model usually rang from $40 - $80 per tooth. As with all of these pricing models different grillz shop determine their value, skill etcetera and transfer that cost to you.
In fact most grillz shop use this model but its not advertised on their website. This is because customers typically request 6 - 8 teeth top and/or bottom. If we do the math real quick $80 per tooth for 12 teeth (that's 6 top and 6 bottom) you'll get a price of $960, which is the price we quoted above for solid gold grillz. If you are looking to get grillz that cover more than 16 teeth, your best bet would be to use this model (especially $80 per tooth) to figure out your ball park total price.
